This post is part of a series that profiles each ingredient in Balbec's three upcoming vibrational fragrances. These fragrances, composed of flower essences and essential oils explore frequencies of sovereignty, benevolent connection, and dreaming/imagining anew.
Krishnamurti observed that “We are second-hand people. We have lived on what we have been told, either guided by our inclinations, our tendencies, or compelled to accept by circumstances and environment. We are the result of all kinds of influences, and there is nothing new in us, nothing that we have discovered for ourselves: nothing original, pristine, clear”
And yet we are creatures that attune: to language, to music, to atmosphere, to programming old and new, to characters, to flavor and fragrance, to others’ moods, and to nature. Beneath it all—we attune to frequencies. So which shall we choose, rather than merely absorb?
Irises have been flowering in the past weeks in the Northern hemisphere. Among its gifts and its energetic frequencies? Sovereignty.
Iris’ rhizomes ground down and travel, bud and stem slip from the sides of the two-dimensional knife edged leaves like ideas in the form of paper cut outs, gaining another dimension as they travel up and up to attain a fully flowering crown.
Long held as a symbol of creativity, inspiration, and sovereign rule, Iris embodies a stable connection between earth and spirit. Its exceptionally valuable energetic gift is to establish balance and electromagnetic integrity within even compromised environments or conditions. Sustaining a frequency and stable electromagnetic field provides subtle catalysts for becoming evermore sovereign— to complete our own circuits, fill our own voids, exercise discernment, ground down a bit more to rise.
While the fresh crown of iris pallida offers the energetic flower essence of iris, aged iris rhizomes yield the fragrance that adds a soft, warm, and delicate anchoring to the base chord of our vibrational fragrance that explores frequencies of sovereignty. One of three energetic perfumes under cultivation and coming up to flower.
