The only flower in the world that is jade/turquoise, the Jade Vine flower is absolutely spectacular. Native to the tropical forests of the Philippines, each individual flower resembles a jade butterfly. Jade Vine's greatest gift to us is the ability to engage with the world in an unobstructed way, experiencing a deeper connection with others and seeing their beauty. It magnifies our ability to let go, let loose and be present to intimacy in everyday moments. It dissolves overwhelm, hypersensitivity of the senses and the desire to run and hide. Jade Vine helps us to be more impervious to abrasive energy, and gives us the confidence to be ourselves. Read more about Jade Vine here!
