I originally created the Healthy Healing Heart Remedy as a bespoke remedy for a very dear friend of mine, who is only 7 months older than me and, in November 2014 three weeks before her 47th birthday, she suddenly had sharp pains down her left side and into her arm and terrible heartburn. Due to the very positive effect the elixir had on my friend, I consequently created it as a stand-alone remedy. She felt calmer and in less pain. Since then, many people have taken this elixir over the years, and have found that it has helped them on many levels. In September 2022, I was guided to remake all of the Mother Tincture and High Vibration Gem Essences, and also create six additional ones (so 53 made in total!).. I was consequently guided that the addition of Aventurine with Silver (one of the new gem essences made), also needed to be in the Healthy Healing Heart Elixir going forward. The full details are contained below of its properties, in addition to the properties of the other ingredients.
The Gem & Flower Essences used are:-
Green Aventurine with Silver – some of the aventurine used to make this new gem essence in August 2022 was jewellery that belonged to my “second Mum”, my ex-husbands mother, a very beautiful soul, with whom I always had (even after my divorce) an exceptionally close and loving relationship. Indeed, when I visited her in 2009, and it was just her and me together in an exquisite part of North-East Scotland, she told me that she had never felt so at peace and calm with anyone in her life before, something that filled me with deep joy at being able to provide such comfort to her. Although she is still alive, at the time of making this new Gem Essence in late August 2022, she gave me several pieces of jewellery and other items (including tablecloths, which I use in both the Alchemy Healing Room, as well as the Serenity Room), when she went into a Residential Care Home in 2020, after her husband died suddenly. She had developed Dementia, which has continued to be a deep sorrow for me. So this is in loving memory of her unconditional love for me, and I was thus delighted when I was guided to make this as one of the new gem essences at the time of remaking every gem essence due to the increased vibrational energies on the planet. So, what is Aventurine and Silver good for? Green Aventurine is a comforter and heart healer. It harmonises and protects the heart, bringing things back into control. It is also useful in malignant conditions. It settles nausea and dissolves negative emotions and thoughts. An all-round healer, it brings in well-being and emotional calm. Generally, Aventurine benefits the thymus gland, connective tissues and nervous system. It balances blood pressure and stimulates the metabolism, as well as lowering bad LDL Cholesterol and preventing arteriosclerosis. It has anti-inflammatory properties and helps ease skin eruptions and allergies. It relieves migraine headaches and soothes the eyes. It heals the adrenals, lungs, sinuses, heart and urogenital and urogenital systems. It has a strong connection to the devic kingdom., and can be used to grid gardens and houses against geopathic stress. It protects against electromagnetic smog, and protects against environmental pollution. It defuses negative situations and turns them around. It enhances creativity, bringing balance to the mind, clearing it of extraneous influences, so that one can truly be in one’s full self-power and confidence. It is an exceptionally calming stone, and releases anger and irritation. Silver - Silver assists in increasing perception and helps to regulate emotional and intuitive energies. It provides for a very strong connection between the physical and astral bodies. Silver can be used as a mirror to the soul, one to stimulate seeing oneself from outside of the body. Silver, when used with gemstones, is able to both attract and retain those qualities which are emitted by the stone. The silver provides a steadying influence. It performs a balancing act by drawing negativity from the body while transferring the positive energies of other minerals. Silver is known to enhance the powers of the moon and is excellent for use in energising other stones during the full and new moons. Silver helps to cleanse the body via the pores and to eliminate toxins at the cellular level. It can be used in the treatment of hepatitis, to increase the assimilation of Vitamins A and E, and to ameliorate disorders associated with unstable vision.
Green & Red Ocean Jaspers – arguably the most phenomenal healing gemstone I have ever had the pleasure to encounter! Balances all aspects of the body, mind & emotions; also another cancer-healer, these two gem essences were created with very special stones – all-round healers!
Self Heal – gathered from my lawn, self-heal only grows in lawns that are free from all chemicals. It treats wounds; heart disease; mouth ulcers; liver complaints; is anti-inflammatory & has cancer-healing properties. Prior to World War II, it was used to staunch bleeding and for treating heart disease. It is used as an anti-inflammatory and has anti-allergic activity.
Rose Quartz Hearts - This Elixir was made with specially chosen Rose Quartz Hearts – one large and three smaller ones to bring in unconditional love for oneself as well as for others and infinite peace to the heart and mind. It is known as THE Heart Stone, and is therefore included in order to bring into balance our heart centres on an emotional level.
Hawthorn Blossom - The blossoms I chose to make this Essence came from three very special trees locally. Hawthorn Blossom is for emotional healing of the heart and even within the high vibration essence, you can still taste the subtle aroma of the flowers! Exquisite!
Hawthorn Berry - Hawthorn (Crataegus spp.) is medicine for the heart on all levels. Hawthorn’s place as heart medicine was noted by Greek physician, Dioscorides, in the first Century AD. Medical herbal research has validated this use, finding hawthorn to be effective for increasing the strength of heart contractions, increasing blood flow to the heart, decreasing blood lipids (ie decreasing bad cholesterol (LDL), and triglycerides) and modulating blood pressure (AltMedReview, 2010). A Cochrane review of trials on hawthorn for chronic or congestive heart failure found that Crataegus extract decreased fatigue and shortness of breath and improved exercise tolerance relative to placebo. The berries were picked locally from the woods on the cliffs overlooking the sea.
South African Green Jade Heart - brings balance into the heart; emanates peace & tranquillity; a stone of joyous love. As an elixir, it brings the deep green energy of the heart to all parts of the body, releasing emotional instability, particularly of irritability and impatience, replacing these feelings with peaceful joyousness
Tiger's Iron– Tiger's Iron is found in Australia and is an amazing combination of Hematite; Red Jasper and Golden Tiger's Eye, resulting in a naturally stripy stone; truly magical! They are fabulous at not only overcoming negative patterns of behaviour, but also protecting us from absorbing other people's negative energies and situations. I was drawn to five specific stones with which to make the Elixir.
Melissa (Lemon Balm) - One of Lemon Balm’s key medicinal qualities is as a tranquillizer. It calms a nervous stomach, colic, or heart spasms. The leaves are reputed to also lower blood pressure. It is very gentle, although effective, so is often suggested for children and babies.
Nicholas Culpepper used lemon balm as a warming pectoral for cold lung conditions and gave a cordial of lemon balm for what he diagnosed as a hot, moist, easily appeased angry heart condition to sweat out the excess moisture from the heart and body. He also used lemon balm cordial for a heart condition he judged to be cold and moist in a phlegmatic body, reasoning Melissa officinalis would help to bring needed heat into the body and therefore bring a healing response as well.
The Lemon Balm I used to create the Essence came from a clump that grows in my front garden every year in the shingle outside the Serenity Room. Sometime when making my Mother Tinctures (where the original plant is in the brandy or vodka) I am drawn to leave the plant in when the tincture or essence is complete. This has been the case with the Lemon Balm. I particularly love its energy in terms of calming the mind, body and soul on all levels and, in addition to its known heart-healing properties, this is the other primary reason it is in the Healthy Healing Heart Elixir.
Smoky Quartz – I made this gem elixir with a natural smoky quartz point. Smoky Quartz is known not only for its protective properties but also for its association with the Earth and Base Chakras, responsible for our material and “basic” needs on earth. It is known for its stress-relieving properties and ability to reduce chemicals and toxins from the body.
All Elixirs are preserved in a water/Raspberry Vodka combination
