Bottlebrush or Callistemon linearis is a member of the myrtle family and is associated with the Sacral Chakra and the Mental and Physical planes.
The virtue of the bottlebrush is to assist with major life transitions, including marriage, childbirth, moving house or job, menopause, and retirement.
This remedy also helps in accommodating the subtler changes that accompany the natural seven-year cycles of our lives. Bottle Brush essence helps us to flow through the changes that life brings, allowing us to let go of the past and move forward to experience new things.
Physically, it acts on the large intestine to open this important channel of elimination. It can also help with pain relief in general, and is thus sometimes used with the combination Emergency Essence (a combination of Angelsword, Crowea, Dog Rose of the Wild Forces, Fringed Violet, Grey Spider Flower, Sundew and Waratah.)
