Wild Heather or Ericaceae Calluna Vulgaris grows on moors, heathland and in woodland where the soil is acid. Its common colour is purple, but occasionally you can see “lucky heather” which is white. In days gone by it was used as a fuel for fires, tied together to make brooms and also as a building material to make the old croft houses. As an essence it helps support those who don’t like to be on their own, the type who cling on to others because they are afraid of their own shadows. They find it hard to stop talking, always wanting to be centre stage and are quite self obsessed, often becoming hypochondriacs. The essence promotes the courage and strength to be independent, changing their mindsets to take an interest in others.
