Isopogon is for people who live very much in their heads. They are dominated by their intellect and there is often a separation between their heart and head. This Essence, like Tall Yellow Top, connects one’s emotions (heart) with their thoughts (head). It especially benefits those people who control through stubbornness. It also enables the retrieval of long-forgotten skills and information.
The small spiral arrangement of this plant's yellow flowers fade and leave a small, grey, round nut which will stay on the plant for many years. In spiritual symbolism the colour yellow represents wisdom and knowledge.

Seven drops of stock are added to a bottle up to 30 millilitres (or 1 ounce) in size, that is filled with a mixture of two thirds (2/3) purified water and one third (1/3) brandy. This is called a "dose" bottle and the recommended dose is seven drops under the tongue on rising and retiring for two to four weeks. Several essences can be combined in the one bottle but it is generally suggested that the number of Essences combined be limited to a maximum of four or five and all address the same theme.
