Redcurrant

✨"You can't hate the roots of a tree and not hate the tree. You can't hate Africa and not hate yourself." - Malcolm X✨ Connecting to our roots allows us to remember who we really are. Never dismissing the part of ourself that keeps us grounded and rooted, enabling us to bare the fruits of our labour 😀🍎. The Redcurrant is native to Western Europe and grows in cool regions with plenty of moisture. This deciduous shrub is related to the gooseberry and is both sweet and tart in flavour.

  • Create a solid foundation, get your basic needs met, walk barefoot, get grounded, feed the roots, let go of fear and allow the energy to flow up to the higher chakras.
  • Red colour; power, passion, energy and action. Awakens our physical life force and self confidence.🌹
