What does the word 'anoint' mean to you?
To me, the practice of anointing the body with precious botanical oils and essences of flowers + gems acts as a simple, and luxurious, reminder of the preciousness of our bodies - and in the bigger picture, our lives. By acknowledging and seeing our own bodies as sacred, we begin to see everything in our lives that way, transforming the mundane into the divine.
As the tool to make this transformative ritual of loving your body apart of your everyday, we created the LOTUSWEI Anointing Oils. Based in jojoba oil and infused with organic & wildcrafted essential oils, flower elixirs, and gem essences, these natural perfumes are completely free of harmful chemicals, phthalates and synthetic fragrances. Applied to the pulse points 5 times a day, these purse-sized roll-on perfumes work through the acupuncture meridians and are just as effected as our Flower Elixirs!

Visualize the entire universe inside your body. As you're anointing yourself with precious botanical oils and elixirs of flowers + gems, you can visualize making offerings of endless fields of flowers, gems and delightful fragrances that awaken minds + make everyone happy.
As we visualize everyone, including ourselves, becoming happy and clear - it naturally shifts how we see the world in our everyday life, because we activate our broader awareness of all beings in the world and how we're all interconnected. What we wish for another, we wish for ourselves.
A simple act of self-care transforms into a profound prayer for humanity.
