Violet Elixir: "Returns with the Spring"
This is my offering especially for 2018's Spring season.
I fell in love with violets in a deeper way than before last year.
And this year, I've made an elixir from these beautiful tiny blooms.
Violets are known for energetically bringing courage and confidence, as well as a vibrancy to self-expression.
If I think about the energy of Spring in general, there's a coming out, a renewal, a realignment of where we're directing our attention and our efforts. Violet helps me with that.
This elixir is made from freshly foraged (by myself!) violets, infused in local brandy, then mixed together with organic sugar, tincture of violet, and flower essence of violet. It is sweet!
There are only 20 of these available due to the limited amount of this potion I was able to make. It's pretty labor and time intensive, but it's mighty. You can use it with a dropper (not included) straight on your tongue, or added to a beverage of your choice. Remember, floral elixirs are gentle and not particularly overpowering so keep that in mind if you plan on mixing them in a cocktail of sorts!
You will receive a 2 oz. bottle of this elixir. Don't mind the little "thing" floating inside! It's just a little violet blossom for good measure.
*Tinctures are a decoction of plants in alcohol, so that the botanical constituents get extracted into the alcohol. If someone is avoiding alcohol entirely, tinctures should be avoided unless they specifically say they are made with glycerin instead of alcohol.
