We use flower essences that are infused in organic extra virgin olive oil and activated in the sun for 40 days. This type of solar infusion harnesses the sun’s energy to pull beneficial properties and essences (or life force) out of the plant material and into the olive oil. Flower essences are primarily used to support the emotional, mental and spiritual body, and they embody the concept of self-care.
The significance of 40 days is important. Biblical and miscellaneous sources describe that a cycle of 40 days was time tracked among the ancients. It has to do with the sun cycle, the details of which are too complex to illustrate here.
It took Jesus 40 days after physical death to be resurrected into the being of the Christ
Jesus fasted for 40 days and spent 40 days and nights in the wilderness
Moses spent 40 days and 40 nights on the mount – twice!
The flood lasted 40 days and 40 nights
40 days is the custom of fasting during Lent practiced by some modern Christians.
A 40 day infusion also means that the infusion has passed through an entire moon cycle of 28 days, energising it with the new moon to full moon energies that correspond the female cycle.
