Kapok Bush: properties, benefits and uses (Australian Flower Essence and Remedy)

Kapok Bush is an Australian flower remedy made from Cochlospermum fraseri. Useful for improving willpower and reacting to states of apathy, it is also useful for fatigue and low immune defenses. Let’s find out better.

Description of the plant

Cochlospermum fraseri – the name of the genus Cochkisoernun derives from the Greek koklo, wind, and sperm, seed, and refers to the ‘parachute’ attached to each seed, which facilitates its dispersion with the wind.

The common name Kapok Bush, on the other hand, refers to the shell of the seed which when ripe contains a soft substance similar to cotton: the aborigines used it to decorate the body, while the colonizers used it to stuff pillows and saddlebags.

It is a slender tree even if it reaches 3 meters in height and grows on rocky soils and on slopes in different areas of the Australian territory. In the dry season, when it loses its leaves, its yellow, aromatic and edible flowers are more noticeable; they have 5 petals, hairy sepals and several stamens.

Preparation and use

In a 30 ml bottle, combine ¾ of natural water and ¼ of brandy to preserve the product; add 7 drops for each chosen flower. 7 drops of this personal blend are taken under the tongue, morning and evening, upon awakening and before bed.

The drops can also be applied locally as well, combined with neutral cream as a carrier, in the bath water or vaporized in the environment to create a harmonious place.

They can also be prepared without brandy, making sure that they do not degrade (if necessary, the preparation is repeated). They can be diluted in a little water or herbal tea, even for children.

Useful, for example, for commitment and perseverance in school for those who tend not to tackle a subject because they find it too difficult. In general, for those who tend to give up easily to do, start or complete something, or when doing tasks and jobs that they do not like.
