Indications: For those who fear taking emotional risks and make pragmatic decisions based on their fears
Foxglove is a biennial, meaning it sends up its leaves and plant structure the first year and flowers in midsummer the next, then after creating and releasing seeds to ensure for the next generation, the parent plant dies. The October Foxglove joins our miracle flower essences because after the plants early summer spectacular bloom it sent up new flowers (the same year) in Michigan's cool late October weather.
The flower essence of October Foxglove supports a release of tension around issues involving heart energies. It is for those who fear taking emotional risks, closing themself off from truly meaningful relationships and intimate interactions. October Foxglove penetrates into your paralyzing fear of change or inability to express your vulnerability. Others may describe you as headstrong or stubborn, and you may have a tendency to be stuck in your head and inflexible making pragmatic decisions based on your fears.
