Rabbit Brush’s latin name, ‘nauseosus’ is very telling…she can help to clear anything that you are holding onto that makes you feel sick to your stomach (physically, emotionally, and spiritually).
She also clears mucus and tightness in the lungs. The lungs are one of the main areas in the body where humans are prone to hold the emotional frequency of grief and loss. You might see this feeling in the physical when you feel so upset, it is hard to breathe.
I have had amazing results in putting Rabbit Brush on my chest when the inkling of a chest cold was trying to arise. For me, she has stopped the low frequency of this ‘sickness’ in its tracks and cleared it from my being as I rested.
Please don’t forget this part: the plants and trees are our great allies and can do the most amazing things, however we must take responsibility for ourselves and do our part to support the process too.
Rabbit brush is in the Asteracae (Sunflower) family. Her bright yellow blossoms reflect her light filled being and offerings to humans. She is an uplifter, a sharer of golden rays of light. Yellow is associated with the solar plexus chakra, so it is no surprise that the gorgeous yellow blooms of rabbit brush support the digestive system and uplift the entire BEing.
I have had the opportunity to spend much time with Rabbit Brush in the wild, on the outskirts of Flagstaff, AZ. She loves to grow in the West in desert to semi-desert areas. In my observance, she isn’t a huge fan of year around heat and prefers to grow in places that have cooler temperatures. Some of the most prolific fields I have ever seen are in southern Utah. Rabbit brush was growing over 7 feet tall! What a wonder to be surrounded by her golden light and energy. She and I deeply bonded during these times. How could you not be moved by such a beautiful soul?
Rabbit Brush also has a best friend in the wild, Purple Sage (Artemisia tridentata). Rabbit Brush and Purple Sage grow side by side. In perfect symbiosis, Rabbit Brush becomes more prominent when the ground experiences a lot of disturbances and then decreases in population as the sage feels safe and comfortable enough to expand.
It is very important in working with plant medicine that we observe how the Devas express themselves on Gaia and with each other. Rabbit Brush prepares the ground and the space for Sage Purple to expand into her fullest expression. If the ground gets disturbed, Rabbit Brush ups her numbers until sage feels safe to thrive again. Yet even as Sage Purple comes into her full glory, Rabbit Brush stays by her side. Does this give you a clue of how you might desire to honor their relationship and perfect balancing when you choose to work with these Devas?
Rabbit Brush is offered in both essential essence (aka. essential oil) and hydrolat form.
Gaia, nature, and the plants and trees are our greatest teachers. I encourage you to explore the quiet and subtle wisdoms of Devas that are right outside your back door!
