Bottle Brush Spiritual Meaning
Abundance, laughter, joy, the essence of the kookaburra. The flowers are used to celebrate birth and all that is new and sustaining. The seed pods make excellent pillow filling allowing the head to breathe.
A lot of our streets and backyards in Australia have these plants and it seems it has become so common place that we look, but do not always see the natural wonders that surround us.
One of Australia’s most iconic natural symbols would have to be the Bottle brush or Callistemon. This natural treasure’s name is of Greek origins callis meaning beauty and stemon meaning stamen which is in reference to its thousands of beautiful stamen flowers creating each individual flower.
