“Traditionally, the Pomegranate has been seen as a symbol of feminine fertility and creativity because the fruit is thought to resemble the uterus, and the rich red colour of both flowers and fruit symbolises the life-giving blood that flows to it. In Greek mythology, the goddess Hera is sometimes depicted holding the red fruit, full of seeds, representing positive femininity and womanhood. Pomegranate flower essence relates to the capacity for creative expression, especially for women. Pomegranate flower essence can help when there is a need for separation and balance between potentially conflicting roles. For example, parents, and especially mothers, need to constantly ‘put on different hats’ – ‘compartmentalising’ life as they move between roles of nurturing parent at home and career person out in the world. Kaminski and Katz (1996) tell us that Pomegranate flower essence can help [a person] achieve creative balance between procreation and creativity and between family and career.” Extract from Mark’s book, “The Essential Flower Essence Book”.
