Andean Rescue Remedy


Andean Rescue Remedy is a combination of five flower essences made from native plants that grow at Sierra y Cielo.

This blend is crafted to provide emotional support in times of crisis or stress. Inspired by Bach’s Rescue Remedy, these flower essences have a deep vibrational resonance for those who live here in the Sacred Valley. Resilient local plants are good medicine for helping us to thrive here.

The five flowers in our essence blend are: llanangora (Mimosa albida), Andean skullcap (Scutellaria volubilis), yacón (Smallanthus sonchifolius), fire bush (Streptosolen jamesonii), & taruma (Miconia lutscens).

Llanangora Flower Essence

Llanangora (Mimosa albida) is a prolific plant at Sierra y Cielo. Tough yet beautiful, llanangora reminds us of our own strength and ability to adapt to challenging situations. Llanangora Flower Essence eases anxiety and fear helping us to tap into our inner strength to deal with stressful circumstances calmly and confidently.

Llanangora Flower Essence also helps us to integrate difficult experiences so we are able to stop dwelling on them and move on.

Llanangora Flower Essence is healing to the heart chakra. It helps to ease grief from old wounds allowing us to stop acting out of fear caused by past trauma. It also allows us to establish healthy boundaries so we feel safe enough to drop our guard and open our hearts to love again after experiencing grief or heartbreak.

This flower essence was crafted under a waning crescent moon in Aries with flowers from our land and mountain spring water. Whiskey is added as a preservative.

Andean Skullcap Flower Essence

Made with our native Skullcap (Scutellaria volubilis), Andean Skullcap Flower Essence helps to reframe anxious thinking about the future and things that are out of our control. It helps us navigate stressful situations with clarity.

Andean Skullcap Flower Essence brings peace with things from our past that haunt us. It enables us to release baggage we’re still carrying from past painful experiences, helping us to get to the root of what triggers us so deeply about the situation and truly let it go so we are finally able to heal.

It allows us to forgive past versions of ourselves who made mistakes we find embarrassing or out of line with our current values or moral standards. It helps us to find the value in that experience and recognize that we wouldn’t be where we are now without it.

Andean Skullcap Flower Essence aids in releasing tension that causes physical pain—especially the back, neck, head, & jaw. It allows us to release the heavy loads we’ve been carrying and move forward unburdened by stress & grudges.

It releases us from repeating self-destructive behaviors that cause us to re-create painful situations in order to integrate them and finally have closure. It helps us from wallowing in regret by replaying situations and obsessing over what we “should” have done.

Andean Skullcap Flower Essence helps us to tune into our intuition, allowing our inner knowing to guide us. It promotes healthy self-confidence and allows us to let go of “poor me” stories of victimhood that may have previously determined how we navigated the world.

Yacón Flower Essence

Yacón (Smallanthus sonchifolius) Flower Essence is sunny & uplifting. It reminds us of life’s sweetness, even in dark times. It is calming & centering, grounding us in the present moment.

Yacón Flower Essence helps to bring our problems into perspective when we become hyper-focused on what is “wrong” with our lives, reminding us of our blessings and allowing us to let go of hang ups that keep us from flowing through challenges with grace.

Yacón Flower Essence lifts heaviness & brightens mood. It reminds of our true nature & positive qualities when we’re overwhelmed by self-doubt and negative self talk. It helps us to break unhealthy thought patterns & boosts positive thinking— especially in regards to our self worth — reminding us of the sweetness we bring to the world & the people we love. It helps us to see our own inner beauty and realize how truly special we are.

Yacón Flower Essence is particularly helpful for body image issues, negative self-talk, low self-esteem, eating disorders, self abusive behaviors, sexual trauma, and healing from abuse.

Fire Bush Flower Essence

Fire Bush (Streptosolen jamesonii) Flower Essence wraps us in a warm hug from Pachamama. It is cheery & warm — like sunshine in a bottle. This essence helps us to see the good in any situation. It boosts mood, bringing happiness & joy to our lives.

Fire Bush Flower Essence promotes positive thinking and helps us to see solutions where we only previously could see problems.

Fire Bush Essence helps us to integrate our shadow side, reconciling those dark sides of ourselves we don’t often acknowledge. It allows us to focus on the blessings in our life instead of only seeing what is wrong or what we think we lack.

This flower essence was crafted under Waning gibbous moon in Capricorn with flowers from our gardens & mountain spring water. Whiskey is added as a preservative.

Taruma Flower Essence

Miconia lutescens, commonly known as taruma, is a pretty shrub endemic to Southern Ecuador that grows happily here at Sierra y Cielo.

Taruma Flower Essence is soothing for frazzled nerves, helping to bring us back into ourselves when we become flustered and full of anxiety. It helps us to be more resilient to life’s stresses, allowing us to weather any storm.

When things start to pile on, threatening to bury us, taruma flower essence helps us to get back on our feet. It allows us to move forward with life instead of being stuck in a place where we are paralyzed by fear and stress.

Taruma Flower Essence brings sweet, loving energy into our lives. It is helpful for those with hectic schedules who are constantly on the go. It brings us back into our bodies when we are running around frantically trying to get things done.

Taruma Flower Essence is well suited for new mothers and those with small children whose days are overwhelmed by to do lists and caring for the needs of others. It assists in voicing personal boundaries, wants & needs in an open, loving communicative way. It promotes non-violent communication, particularly with loved ones.

This flower essence was crafted under a full Blood Moon in Aries with flowers from our gardens & mountain spring water. Whiskey is added as a preservative.

Packaged in a 30 ml glass bottle with a dropper. 

How to Use Vibrational Essences
Take 3-4 drops of your vibrational essence of choice under the tongue or in a glass of water up to 4 times a day for anywhere from a week to a few months. Specific duration & frequency will vary depending on a person’s sensitivity and their specific needs. One may choose to take the essence more often during a crisis or while processing a traumatic event until they have reached a state of calm. Take the essence at least 15-30 minutes before or after consuming any food or liquids (other than water). While taking the essence, it can be helpful to create a moment, even if it’s short, to reflect on one’s intentions and what work is being done with that particular essence.
