In response to the Thomas Fire,
these new, specially designed formulas
will be offered on a donation basis
to all individuals and their families affected by the fires,
for a limited time starting in January.

All formulas are free for those who need them.
All donation proceeds will be donated to the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy
to support their restoration efforts. Suggested donation $15-25 per formula.

These formulas contain essences traditionally used for trauma healing, plus flower and plant spirit essences co-created in and around the Ojai Valley, particularly the native plants known to survive or respond positively to wildfires.

These essences are intended to support the recovery of both humans and animals impacted by the fires.

It is also my hope that by using these essences, we can energetically support our local environment through the principles of resonance. Just as the ring of fire surrounded us, embodying these plant vibrations will flow outwardly from us in the valley center to the wilderness that surrounds us, encouraging its recovery.

Trauma Repair - neutralizes shock and fear, releases trauma imprints, grounds and centers in present time

Renewal - nourishing support for stability, regeneration, perseverance, hope, and fresh perspective

Grief Release - eases grief from loss, separation, displacement; restores the heart, uplifts the spirit

Calm & Peace - promotes mental and emotional calmness and inner peace; helpful also for winding down to get a good night's sleep

Rise & Thrive - accessing and empowering our vitality, wisdom, and ability to serve; finding or renewing our sense of direction and purpose

Caregiver Support - lessens overwhelm and exhaustion; supports healthy compassion without over-empathy

Animal Recovery - supports courage, hope, trust, coping with changes, healing from loss & separation


We are hoping to arrange a central location in Ojai to discuss and dispense them. In the meanwhile, inquiries and requests may be directed to Susan Draffan via the contact page on this site. Thank you.

Coming soon in 2018:

Ojai Nature Essences made in and around the Ojai Valley
from flowers, trees, landscapes, and ceremony.
