“The earth laughs in flowers,” Ralph Waldo Emerson writes -- and while his observation certainly pertains to the beauty of flowers, it also points to the impact their qualities have upon us humans. I’ll show you the wei... The Lotus Wei.
Having fresh flowers around the your home (and garden if you’re lucky enough to have one) is a delight! Yet after a week or so, cut flowers wilt and are ready for the compost. What if you could harness the power of flowers in a way that truly transformed your life? What if you could tap into the essence of a certain flower and let it dissolve unwanted patterns? What if flowers could change your life?
Well, they can. And because I'd like you to experience the power of flower essences for yourself you get 15% off your Lotus Wei order now until the end of May with code Gratitude15.
How do flower essences work? As in homeopathy, you’re working with the essence of a substance which results in a subtle yet deep effect. Think about the amazing things our smart phones can do; we don’t see those frequencies that get us from A to B via G Maps, download email, post our photos to social media, send that text, let you talk with your cousin across the country... Just because we can’t see something with our naked eyes doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Same with potency. Just because a plant’s been diluted doesn’t mean it’s not powerful; au contraire, it goes farther, deeper, stronger.
Lotus Wei make potent flower essence elixirs, mists, anointing oils, and serums. They’re a joy to use and a force to be reckoned with. If names like Inner Peace, Inspired Action, Joy Juice, and Quiet Mind intrigue you, read on. I got to meet Katie Hess, Lotus Wei’s founder, and her awesome team at her book party in NYC last year. They’re bright souls so it’s no wonder that Lotus Wei is a company built on integrity, innovation, and profound wellbeing. Check out Katie’s book Flowerevolution.
Below I’m sharing some of my favorite flower essence creations from Lotus Wei. These treats will help Mom feel better and brighter long after that expensive bouquet has been discarded. It’s time to thrive and and shine in full bloom!
Infinite Love mist: This is a staple at my house and the perfect gift for Mom. I spray it several times throughout the day and take it with me if I’m traveling. A presence of love is palpable once you’ve shifted the energy in the room with the power of Hong Kong Orchid, Pink Lotus, Wild Fireweed, and pink tourmaline among others.
Inner Peace elixir: Oh, don’t we all crave more inner peace right now? I adore this formulation! Arctic Lupine, Red Hibiscus, Silk Floss, Mountain Laurel, and emerald transmute stress, overwhelm, fear, nervousness, and lack of confidence into deep peace, calm, confidence, and strength during times of high stress. I wouldn’t be with out this jewel. Great in tea, superfood hot chocolate, coffee, water, smoothie, dessert, or straight in the mouth.
Inspired Action mist: Just looking at the bright citrus label will energize you. I love misting myself and my environment with Inspired Action when I feel stuck, distracted, or procrastinate. Flowers such as Fire Star Orchid, Red Bird of Paradise, and Euphrasia kickstart drive, fearless creativity, intuition, synchronicity, and decisiveness.
Joy Juice elixir: Let your hair down! If you worry a lot, feel the weight of responsibilities, and overcomplicate things, reach for Joy Juice. Life will be more fun. Invite in play, euphoria, light-heartedness, and the simply fact that life can be enjoyed. Add this elixir to Mother’s Day mimosas, drizzle it on top of cupcakes, spike your daily tea/coffee. Time to let Chocolate Flower, Pink Spirea, African Daisy, Pink Lotus, and real garnet work their real magic.
Radiant Energy anointing oil: Gotta have this during air travel. Protect yourself from fatigue due to cell phone and computer use, and being around close. The NYC subway and flying commercial are examples of getting too close to folks you don’t want to be so close to. Reinforce your aura. Keep it luminous and yours. Moreover, if you feel yourself taking on other people’s energies, feel weak, invisible, and not clear about what you want, work with Radiant Energy. In addition to kickass plants like Clary Sage, Navel Orange, Red Clover, and Jade Succulent, it contains the essence of black tourmaline -- one of my all-time favs to keep my energy clean. Apply on pulse points.
Quiet Mind anointing oil: If you lie awake at night because your mind’s racing through your to-do list, you wake up from restless sleep, and feel tension in the neck and shoulders, use Quiet Mind. It’ll guide you toward clarity, focus, a quiet mind, and sound sleep. Let Bird of Paradise, Passionflower, Dandelion, and Lotus, among others, help you return to your senses. I'm currently out of it (hence no picture) but check it out on Lotus Wei's site. Way cool.
Black Bat Flower elixir: This s a single flower essence that may take longer to show its effects but it’ll go deeper. This one’s been a rockstar in my life. Calling all conscious entrepreneurs, earth angels, activists, and Moms! “Black Bat Flower elixir gives us a burst of strength, confidence, and the power to propel ourselves forward. It transforms fear and anger into fierce compassion and awakens our fearlessness to stand up for ourselves and others.”
I hope you feel inspired to explore the power of flower essences from Lotus Wei. I couldn’t think of a better gift for Mom, yourself, your family and friends. It’s the ripple effect that brings about positive transformation. Let’s become the people we are capable of being. Mother nature offers her treasures in abundant support.
