Hawaiian Rain Tree Essence (aka Hawaiian Silk Tree or Monkeypod Tree) carries energies of healing, rejuvenation and regeneration. It can help you develop greater receptivity and empathic ability. Rain tree Essence teaches you to “filter” the energy you take in from your surroundings and to discard that which would bring you down (or is not of use to you). If you tend to absorb the energies of others, working with this essence can help you to better manage your own energy throughout the day, helping to prevent issues of burnout and fatigue. This quality renders this essence especially helpful if you are overly sensitive, as well as if you lack sensitivity for others- it can, with time teach you to cultivate it.

It can help you stay replenished, refreshed, and rejuvenated, even in times of stress and challenge.
