Ever since the company was founded in the mid 1980’s my commitment has been to provide the most pure, potent products possible. Even with a staff of over 30 people I am still the person who travels to remote areas of Australia to make up the Essences in the most pristine environments that I can find. Not only are the Essences only ever made in ideal conditions and certainly away from any form of pollution, but I would never contemplate making an Essence if I was in any way out of balance. I don’t cultivate the plants that I make the Essences from, but rather choose plants growing in the wild. These plants have a much higher lifeforce as they have to cope with Australia’s harsh weather conditions where they are likely to experience extreme heat, drought and floods. These are the plants I want to work with rather than those that are being watered, fed and pampered in an artificial environment. The 69 Bush Essences come from all regions of Australia - alpine, tropical, desert and temperate, etc.
To prepare the Boab Essence I have to fly 5 hours from Sydney to Perth then wait for a connecting 3 hour flight to Broome in the north west of the country. This is then followed by a minimum 2 hour drive to where the Boab trees are found. Even though there are other Essences that I work with growing in this region, Boab is the only one that flowers in the summer and consequently is the only Essence that I’m able to make on this trip. However, it has incredibly powerful, unique, healing qualities, unlike any other essence in the world and I simply accept that this elaborate lengthy journeying is what is required to make it.
In the spiritual ranges such as White Light and Light Frequency Essences I have travelled to areas such as Antarctica, Greenland, an Indian cave in the Himalayas near the Tibetan border and climbed to the top of an incredibly steep mountain in the Andes to prepare Essences. I went to these locations because they were the best place in the world to make them. There is a very nice cave system 3 hours from Sydney that would have been a lot easier, on all levels, to make the Earth Essence there, but it wouldn’t have been as effective as making the Essence in India.
It’s not only in making the Essences where our commitment lies. Our skin and body care range are all certified organic which requires having only the highest quality and quantity of organic ingredients. We also hold a daily guided meditation and essence attunement with all the staff, whether they work in the office, production or in despatch.
The production staff all take a dose of each particular remedy they are about to make up. Not only are they very focussed within the production rooms, but even in their breaks they make a conscious choice not to get caught up in gossip or discussing world dramas and natural disasters that are occurring. Also, all the Essences that we make are blessed for bringing about optimal healing for whoever is taking that remedy, before they leave the Bush Essence premises.
