Buttercup "Self Esteem" The Buttercup teaches us how to live in a state of "unconditional love." Buttercups are said to be a favorite of young children and faeries. The energy of 'innocence' resonates from this plant spirit. The flower essence helps us learn to accept our 'life gifts' in a pure way, without attachment or judgment. Buttercup helps us "balance out" when we undervalue ourselves. All have the halo & hope of becoming "Children of Light."
