Along with than a tiny handful of botanical gardens that make the effort to grow this flower, the only place in the world that the Jade Vine grows natively is in the Philippines, where it is called ‘tayabak’. As a result of deforestation on the islands, Jade Vine flower is considered an endangered species, making this flower very rare + special.

Why It's Special

An amazing flower unlike no other, the Jade Vine flower is one of the few occurrences of this color in nature! Also known as the emerald creeper, this impressive vine flower ranges in color from aquamarine to luminous jade to electric blue with indigo. It is native to the tropical rainforests of the Philippines. The flower looks like a luminous jade hook or folded up butterflies on the vine and its impressive color is absolutely breathtaking. It is pollinated by a special kind of bat that hangs upside down to reach the nectar.

What it Reveals

If you find yourself attracted to the Jade Vine flower, there may be specific situations in your life you want to avoid or feel like running away to hide. You may have felt triggered or snagged into your - or someone else’s - emotional drama. You may have felt harassed or on display, with a desire to escape, avoid or separate yourself from the chaos.

Alternatively, you may sometimes feel overwhelmed, and hypersensitive to the world around you. Recently, you may have felt that the external world is crazy + brash - you want to escape to somewhere quiet. The world may appear to you as uncultured, rough or disturbing in some way. You may feel like your senses are under attack and that you’d like to just run + hide. You may at times feel so sensitive, with such high perception levels, that you feel people’s emotions around you in a way that feels disturbing. You may feel like people are emotional, loud, or lonely in a manner that pulls at your own energy.

What the Elixir Catalyzes

Jade Vine magnifies our ability to be fully in the world without getting affected by others’ emotions. It helps us feel protected + impervious to abrasive energies. It allows us to engage with the world in a more intimate way, because we’re not always guarding ourselves. We feel more present, expansive + connected with others, and we’re more able to see the beauty in humanity vs. only seeing the ugliness.

This sense of harmony with the external world allows us to feel unobstructed and free. We’re more okay being on display, acting as a leader, making eye contact and engaging with all sorts of different types of people, even those we would typically define as having abrasive or unrefined energies. We can be warm, supportive, a good listener and we can provide laughter. Anything that is abrasive just rolls off of us effortlessly. Our energy systems feel impervious to clashing forces and patterns around persecution dissolve.

Jade Vine harmonizes our perception: people or situations that may have appeared previously as hostile, now appear soothing. We’re more able to engage from a position of intimacy, rather than feeling triggered, snagged or attacked. It enhances a deeper level of fearlessness around being who we are,along with a truer sense of inseparability.

Jade Vine flower elixir helps us to more deeply engage with others, getting a sense of their divine nature and seeing parts of them that are harmonic, peaceful + soft. It helps us experience a deeper human connection and see the beauty in others. The elixir magnifies our ability to let go, let loose and open to human intimacy. When we engage on this level with others, we more often see them as divine. When we’re able to attain a deeper level of personal vulnerability, we engage with more reverence for ourselves + others.
