Not to be confused with the Essences of Time.

The Essences of Nature are eight relics that Link must obtain to help the Maku Tree and save Din in Oracle of Seasons. Each one is hidden in one of the enemy- and puzzle-filled dungeons spread across Holodrum. When Link obtains all eight Essences, the Maku Tree gives him a special seed called the Huge Maku Seed.
