African Tree Essences for healing

Oct 17, 2016

I always love returning to my home country, but earlier this year I was was also lucky enough to visit Melissa Krige, creator of the African Tree Essences, in the beautiful Platbos forest just outside Stanford in the Western Cape region. This forest is a relic of the indigenous forests that once covered the area, and some of the trees are over 1000 years old.

Melissa and her partner have been working to protect and restore the Platbos forest since 2005. Melissa is very passionate about the trees and has seen the transformational effect they have on people who visit them. She would spend a lot of time amongst the trees and begun to see that they had healing properties. This led her to develop the African Tree Essences which harness the individual power of the 13 major indigenous trees in the forest. Each tree essence has a particular set of properties and focus for our wellbeing.

The African Tree Essences are vibrational essences and are made in the same way as the Bach Flower Essences. The flowers and leaves are harvested and placed in spring water and left to infuse.Β  Melissa believes the trees have an important message to share with us at this crucial time in the evolution of humanity. This message is simply to love and learn to connect from our hearts so that we can overcome the massive conflicts and inequalities in the world today in order to move forward and continue to evolve here on earth. They help us to reconnect with Nature and to begin caring for one another and the earth again.

In terms of healing, the essences have been shown to help with a number of conditions including insomnia, anxiety, depression, and deep trauma. They work on rebalancing our energy systems and treating our mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health. Indigenous medicine people and shamans knew that a disconnection of spirit becomes dis-ease in the body and these remedies work to rebalance us by aligning us with the stable high energy vibration of these ancient trees.

I am very excited to be working with the essences .They can be used alongside homeopathic treatment or on their own. If you would like to know more about how the African Tree Essences could help you give me a call on 077 48491397 or email me and watch the video we made where Melissa tells us more about the essences. I work in Brighton or on skype.
