Raising Son’s Herbals
Victoria, BC – Vancouver Island
As the name of my little business suggests, I have two sons, G who is 6 and F who is 5. The two of them totally changed my life. I used to be the do everything woman until I crashed. To make a long story short I realized that I needed a change. So here I am, making a change. I am happily attending the Pacific Rim College to expand my knowledge of herbs and botanical magic in the dual diploma of Phytotherapy and Acupuncture program and i’m spending more time with my family. Especially my children.
Through my healing journey what I have realized the most is that, especially with kids, nothing is perfect and we have very, very little control over that. We can either go with the flow of whatever life will bring us or we can go kicking and screaming, but either way, we will go.
I want to create products that other parents can relate to, use in their lives with their kids. I also want to create them WITH my kids. To be able to share knowledge of the earth and some entrepreneurial skills with my sons makes me feel as though I am playing a big role in the future of our world.
As you have the opportunity to experience some of our products please let me know how you used them in your home, what you liked about them and how your kid liked them too.
‘We are the Wildflowers’
“Garden Sweets” comes with an enchanting story full of wild growth…
We were two best ‘buds’ living in a Garden Suite in North Vancouver; with an abundant, overgrown garden at our doorstep. We couldn’t help but cover our suite with all the mesmerizing blooms that kept popping up over the season, a new surprise and opportunity for appreciation each day. A serious attachment formed to these little ‘sweet’ hearts, as we let them dry in bouquets organically.
The flowers were wise little messengers asking for nothing in return for their beauty. Suddenly we realised we were living in a floral jungle.. and with enough creative curiosity, the message came…
Could we actually keep these babies alive forever, blending art with the beauty nature provides us with? The flowers answered a clear yes!… as if we were in ‘The Garden of Live flowers’ scene of Alice in wonderland.

Sacred Starseed Healing
Born under the power of the Lunar and Solar eclipses, Vibrational Elixirs initiate transformations
deep within the galaxies of your cells.
The world is filled with sentient Beings of the plant, animal, spirit and mineral realms; it is also filled with experiences, expressions, and the Elementals, all of which have ancient & present knowledge that emits a vibration. These vibrations can be collected and used to heal, to affect change on all levels of being, from the cellular & physical structures; to the etheric, auric, & emotional bodies; to the spiritual & Divine Self states.
Vibrational Elixir carry the energetic imprints of these Beings, including crystals, plants, Ancient Sigils, and vibrational encodings of the planets and other Celestial Bodies. These Divine Healing Codes interact with the subtle bodies to evoke specific qualities within you to influence all the Planes of your Existence so you can access the realms of Self-Actualization.
Vibrational Elixirs contain to physical substance or constituents of the Being whose imprint was gifted, instead, it is the specific energetic resonance, their Vibrational Wisdom, that influences and guides your vibration into alignment. They are different than essential oils, tinctures, and homeopathic offerings in that there are no physical particles of the Being within the Elixir; instead, the energetic frequency of Divine Healing Codes are imprinted within water and preserved with brandy or vinegar.
These Divine Healing Codes are intentionally amplified through the use of Spring water that has been activated with the healing sound vibrations of David Hickey’s Paiste gongs and crystal bowls, cleansed and imbued with Universal Life Force Energy & Reiki symbols, and sealed with a cycle through a crystalline pyramid.
Vibrational Elixirs are intentionally created on Vancouver Island by Hilary Hraefn Porter of Sacred Starseed Healing. As a Full Spectrum Healer & Tameana Starseed Oracle, Hilary offers high frequency healing, gatherings & training that empower you within your own wellness & awaken you to the patterns that make sense to your Soul.
