This is an essence which works with clearing the past. Archetypically the fig is connected with fear, shame and sexuality. Thus this essence is a powerful treatment for shame, fear and the resultant lack of confidence, as well as paranoia. It has the ability to assist in locating emotions hidden in the subconscious, often originating in the collective unconscious, bringing them into consciousness. Sexual fears affecting the ability to conceive and fears relating to parenthood are particularly effectively treated by this essence. Fear blocks creativity and, whether it is on a physical, emotional or spiritual level, the release of fear clears the path for the expression of the creative force, which is mankind's inherent birthright. It is beneficial to use this essence in preparation for conception and pregnancy.
