“When we’re in nature, we move toward what elicits our best qualities. When we need a boost of confidence, joy, courage, or love, we’re attracted to those flowers that evoke those qualities within us. After spending time around trees and flowers, we actually feel different; we can feel all kinds of positive qualities rising up within us. Those qualities are already within us, but it’s being in nature that wakes up those feelings inside us and remind us—with a visceral experience—of who we are.” ~ Katie Hess, Author + Flower Alchemist
I’m literally bursting with excitement to tell you that the long awaited book from Katie Hess is HERE! FLOWEREVOLUTION!
I am also so excited to be able to share with all of you my experiences with using the Lotus Wei / L’Apothecary Wisdom Mist and Perfume Anointing Oil, both of which contain Rose in them.
As many of you may know I have been a HUGE fan of Lotus Wei for years now. They were one of the first brands I ever reviewed and recommended on my blog. In fact, not a day goes by where I do not use Lotus Wei products. I even collaborated with them and Modern Minerals on a Lipgloss + Blush!
My life has changed since I discovered Katie’s work years ago. There is nobody in the world like Katie Hess, whom I refer to as the “Queen of Flowers.”
What an absolute perfect time to introduce FLOWEREVOLUTION this week with all the political discourse. We all need to regroup, reorganize and look to the future with positivity. There is so much that each of us can do to raise the vibration to one of love, sharing, and kindness. Flowers help us to do that!
I’m not sure there is a more powerful REVOLUTION than that of the FLOWEREVOLUTION, which offers each of us a chance to “BE the change we wish to see in the world.” By working on ourselves to be more peaceful, joyful and forgiving, we naturally help the greater good.
Did you know that plants are psychic? Studies show that our houseplants perceive our stress, even when we’re thousands of miles away! Flowers and plants in general have tremendous intelligence and we are much more connected to them than we are aware of. They make us feel happier, less stressed, more in tune + more fulfilled.
This is the premise of the gorgeous new book by flower alchemist, Katie Hess: Flowerevolution: Blooming into Your Full Potential with the Magic of Flowers.
In this book Katie & her co-creator, award-winning filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg, open us up to a fresh new world of magic & possibility. By choosing the flowers you’re most attracted to from 48 different profiles, you discover what your favorite flowers reveal about you – with insights, reflective questions & actions to magnify your true self.
Learn about the transformative power of flower elixirs: how they remove the everyday static of life created by electronics, lack of nature time, stress + other energy-draining influences that we can’t see. Discover how they inspire joy, help us sleep better, enhance confidence, uncover hidden talents + accelerate personal growth.
Flower elixirs are like liquid chi ~ containing the energetic life force of the flowers; they travel through the acupuncture meridians, bringing us into balance (like an acupuncture treatment without the needles).
My favorite part? It’s full of exercises, reflections, rituals, recipes & projects, including flower baths, elixirs, mandalas, body oils, desserts, and more!
Right now, as a gift for you, she’s offering up the first two chapters as a sneak peek, plus gorgeous digital flower wallpapers so you can experience their visual healing powers on your phone or desktop.
Anyone who purchases the book before November 18th will receive: Exclusive invite to LIVE webinar gathering with Katie on December 7th, 5pm PST to explore the book together.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH ROSE FLOWER ESSENCE
I wanted to tell you a little bit about one of my most adored and cherished flowers of all time and what the powerful flower essences of this beloved flower, the ROSE can do for you.
Message: Nurture yourself.
Rose is one of the most popular and beloved flowers in the world. The scent of Rose is soothing and to some intoxicating, with love-inducing effects. Its essential oil is one of the most expensive and sought-after oils. The distillation process requires at least 60 Roses in order to get just one drop of precious Rose oil! If you’re attracted to the Rose, you may need some extra love and comfort. One of the best flowers for healing the heart, Rose cools the temper and triggers forgiveness, healing emotional wounds and scars. It magnifies unconditional love and tenderness and inspires us to nurture and care for ourselves and others. The Rose elixir softens our hard edges, enhances compassion and promotes a gentle strength.
Rose is featured in both the Lotus Wei Collaboration with L’Apothecary Wisdom Mist + Perfume Anointing Oil and I used both products every day, multiple times a day for months. I found that whenever I felt out of balance (which happens to me easily due to dealing with chronic health challenges as well as being an Empath) I would spray myself with the Mist(It’s like a comforting much needed hug.), focusing on the back of my neck to ease tension, around my head and down my entire body (at night I sprayed my feet!). I instantly felt more grounded and calm. This feeling continued even during times of increased stress. During these times I would spray the mist and then add the Anointing Oil. I focused the anointing oils on my temples, behind my ears and on my pulse points. I was very careful to take the time to BREATHE in the sweet + spicy scent and allow my body RELAX. Sometimes when out I would just grab the bottle of anointing oil and smell it right out of the bottle without even having to apply it. It reminded me to pause, take a breath and remember that everything will be okay. Practicing this on a daily basis was so helpful for anxiety and nervous tension.
I was overwhelmed by the benefits of adding just the two of these products into my daily routine. I have always been a deeply loving person but while using both of these products I felt MORE love towards people and was able to express it in more ways than I had been able to before. I also found myself to be more receiving of love from those around me. Love is not something to take for granted so to be able to give it AND receive it is essential. ❤️
Whenever I take flower essences internally by using a tincture or use them externally in a mist or oil, I find that more people, even strangers will give me compliments. I feel stronger, less anxious and more at peace. It is truly amazing what flowers can do.
“With a little help from flowers, let’s bloom into our happiest, clearest + most loving selves.”
