FLOWERS FOR INNER PEACE

March 14, 2016

In this modern day, it’s so easy to become stressed. In fact, unless you live in a supremely peaceful rural area, it’s pretty much inevitable. Most of us around the world live in large cities where simply by living in a city environment we are subjected to more buzz, electronics, cell phone waves, noise, traffic, people and lights.

We spend most of our time indoors and rarely get sufficient, regular doses of luscious and revitalizing nature time. We have a million things on our to-do list and bounce from one thing to the next, hardly stopping to take a break. Add to that the stress of being human - having a lot going on and experiencing the usual changes and challenges in life.

As my all-time favorite remedy for stress, Inner Peace is a blend of the following flower essences:

Mountain Laurel LOTUSWEI flower essences

MOUNTAIN LAUREL
Sophora secundiflora
Activate: Total comfort
Message: Let it all hang out.

One of the most amazing smelling flowers in the world (like lilacs + grapes), Mountain Laurel blooms in the desert for several weeks in early spring. A rare delight, its flowers grow in beautiful, aromatic clusters that drape down from a large sage-colored bush.

Mountain Laurel helps us let it all hang out no matter what situation we’re in, even when we’re shy or around people we don’t know. It helps us feel totally comfortable with ourselves, accepting ourselves - as we are - 100%. It helps us let loose and get a sense of our true greatness in the world. It dissolves tension, worry, insecurity and fear - and helps us move from playing small to playing big. It helps us let go + feel free when we find ourselves holding in emotions or holding on to things too tightly.

red hibiscus LOTUSWEI flower essences

RED HIBSCUS
Hibiscus rosa-sinensis
Activate:Fresh perspective
Message:
Hit the refresh button.

Red Hibiscus helps us regain hope and experience relief after a string of stressful events. It brings in light at the end of the tunnel, and supports us in recognizing how these situations contribute to our personal growth.

When we have several life-changing events in a row, these events can re-create or mold us into a different person. This has a positive side: it can gives us the sense of having a fresh start.

Hibiscus flower helps us turn over a new leaf into a new chapter of our lives, while retaining the wisdom we have gained from challenging situations. It allows us to start anew with a fresh perspective.

arctic lupine LOTUSWEI flower essences

ARCTIC LUPINE
Lupinus arcticus
Activate: Deep peace
Message: You are supported.

A gorgeous wildflower collected in British Colombia, Canada, the Arctic Lupine gives our state of mind a whole new level of peace. It keeps us cool, calm and collected and helps us feel more supported. Perfect for when we have a lot going on, and a lot on our plates, it dissolves total overwhelm and helps us feel like our lives are manageable.

Arctic Lupine is especially helpful when we feel heavy, in over our heads or bombarded. It brings in a comforting sense of safety and protection, which helps us feel secure enough to expand into who we truly are.

  silk floss flower LOTUSWEI flower essences

SILK FLOSS
Ceiba speciosa
Activate:Confidence
Message:
It's time to shine.

A wildly exotic flower that grows on a tree whose trunk is covered in enormous, bright green spines, Silk Floss Flower comes to the rescue when we feel off kilter, out of balance and not ourselves. It infuses us with confidence and helps us feel grounded and centered.

When we're wound up in self-consciousness, we tend to close ourselves off from enjoying hte moment and experiencing what's around us. Silk Floss helps us fully accept ourselves and shine. It helps us stand tall, exude confidence and feel at ease with who and how we are.

emerald gem essence LOTUSWEI flower essences

EMERALD

The perfect elixir for when we feel saturated with emotions (our own or from outside influences), Emerald quickly breaks up and cleanses stagnant energy and brings back our inner calm, our peaceful heart, our usual easy going nature.

pink lotus LOTUSWEI flower essences

Yarrow LOTUSWEI flower essences

PINK LOTUS & YARROW

We infuse everything we make with Pink Lotus (wisdom + insights) and Yarrow (re-energize after being on cell phone/computer). In combination with the main flower elixirs, the Inner Peace blend magnifies deep peace, comfort, confidence + contentment.

AROMATHERAPY FOR PEACE

Inner Peace Elixir doesn’t have a scent, but the mist, serum and anointing oil have been infused with complementary and synergistic essential oils for peace: lavender, geranium, vetiver, atlas cedar and juniper - creating an herbal and spicy blend that grounds and calms our energy alongside the flower essences.
