Cayenne is the quintessential fire plant, living in the full heat of the summer sun, metabolizing that heat and incorporating it into its pungent fruit. Cayenne peppers are used to stimulate circulation, enhance digestion, reduce inflammation and clear the body during coughs and colds.
The flowers themselves are somewhat different with their reflective white color, and partially hidden, downward orientation. Sheltered by the foliage from the full solar intensity, the Cayenne flower is like a small, protected sanctuary within the plant, where forces can be gathered to integrate solar energy into the very substance of the plant.
Cayenne flower essence is a wonderful catalyst whenever we feel sluggish or stuck and can’t move forward.
