Living Tree Orchid Essences
Two New Orchid Essences
With a greenhouse housing over 700 orchids, it perhaps shouldn't be too surprising when one or two call out clearly to have an essence made. In brief, we now have 2 new essences: Celestial Siren, and Vital Core.

The photo above is of the orchid Dendrobium lawesii, from SE Asia, which produced Celestial Siren. Very much a quietening essence, it helps bring one to a deep inner meditative stillness. In the next newsletter, we will describe it in more detail, but if anyone wants more info straight away, or larger images, please email us and we'll be happy to oblige.

Vital Core was made with a slipper orchid species which is native to Peru, called Phragmipedium besseae.

Some of you may recognize this as the orchid used to produce an essence (Radiant Strength) in the Dancing Light Orchid Essence range, which we used to carry. But in our making of Vital Core, there were important differences in the process, which have resulted in substantial differences with Radiant Strength. Vital Core was made largely in the dark, with just some rays of the full moon passing over the orchid and the bowl of water. The orchid wanted it done this way so that it could more readily access & clarify shadow aspects of the principal chakras it acts on. This is a very yang essence, which also helps energize the gall bladder. Again, we will share more details about Vital Core in next month's newsletter.

Both essences were made with our old friend Dr. Adrian Brito-Babapulle, who was up here at the end of November teaching a 4-day seminar on kinesiology. Adrian has been one of our most stalwart customers for the orchid essences from their earliest days, and in the last several years has been responsible for creating a few highly innovative and wonderful combinations with our essences - amongst others, Temple of Light, and Shiva's Crown. And in the past two years he has had a direct involvement with Don in the making of several essences. His input and involvement with the orchid essences has been and continues to be invaluable. A heartfelt thank you to you Adrian!

The two new essences are not yet up on our website, but we will have them up very soon. In the meantime, they are available to order. If ordering via the website, one can simply order 2 bottles of Totem, and in the notes section mention that what you really want are the two new orchid essences - and we'll know what you mean!
New Kit of 78 Essences

For sometime now we have had more orchid essences than could fit in our kit boxes, so when our box supplier sent us a sample of our new box (which is one row deeper, so each box holds 42 bottles) and it was an utterly gorgeous purple, we decided we couldn't wait. We have just taken delivery of them, and hence the timing of this newsletter. 

The kit now consists of 78 essences, and as before they are in two of the boxes. The essences include:
59 single orchid essences
17 combination orchid essences
1 x the Narnia Sphagnum Moss essence
1 x one of our Living Isle Rhododendron essences
and one set of the orchid photo cards.

Each of the essences is at stock strength, whether they are singles or combinations; and all are 15 ml bottles except the Narnia Sphagnum Moss essence which is in a 10 ml bottle. This last essence very much wants to be in a green bottle, and it is more or less impossible to get a 15 ml green bottle! We still sell the 30 ml bottle size of the Narnia Sphagnum Moss essence, but only the 1o ml size can fit in the kit boxes.

One of our Christmas Special Offers

The new full kit will retail at £650, and from January 1st the price to professional therapists (full-time or part-time) will be £429 plus £12.95 carriage.
