The Trinity of Holy Thorn Essence offers support during times of transition, bringing clarity and a centredness of being.
Created on an Easter morning in co-operation with the three Holy Thorn (Hawthorn) trees in the Chalice Well Gardens, it carries the wisdom of surrender, and through its cleansing and purifying energies assists with the transformation of suffering.
The Holy Thorn tree is associated with the Legend of Joseph of Arimathea, the uncle of Jesus, in Glastonbury. On arriving after the crucifixion, he planted his staff in the ground of Wearyall Hill where it took root and blossomed.
This tree (Crataegus monogyna ‘Biflora’) is not native to Britain but originates from the Middle East. Its biennial flowering with white blossoms and red berries at Easter and Christmas time is a source of wonder to many.
“Holding the bottle… (in thought) I saw standing next to the Well… a woman…she seemed ancient and very wise… She came closer to me and I saw in her eyes the suffering of humanity- ‘forgiveness and love’ she said.” Bahli M.M. | in a blind trial of the Trinity of Holy Thorn Essence
“A sense of being in contact with the garden and its special energies. This Essence has helped to ‘buoy me up’, to support me.” Jude W.R. | in a blind trial of the Trinity of Holy Thorn Essence
