Product Review: Lotus Wei Infinite Love Energy Mist and Elixir
Around the time I started spritzing my friends, suddenly and without warning, with this stuff, it occurred to me it might be time for a proper review.
Regular readers may recall us mentioning Lotus Wei and Wei of Chocolate in the past. I’ve since had the pleasure of getting to know both founders, and I now happily count them as friends. We also did a Friday Deal with them, and you guys seemed really pleased! But I can’t imagine anyone’s taken “pleased” the to level I have.
These days, I won’t leave the house without my Lotus Wei Infinite Love and Pure Energy elixirs, doling them out liberally to people I care for; one friend even accused me of roofying him recently, when I dropped some of an elixir in his whiskey at a bar. Still, I realize taking flower essences like they’re medicine for the soul—and I do believe they are—is not for everyone. You know what is for everyone, though? The Energy Mists (well, and the chocolate, obviously).
These days, the Infinite Love one is always crammed in my purse, and now that the line is sold at ABC Home here in New York (as well as on Spirit Beauty Lounge), I’ll never have a reason not to go without it again.
Why do I love it? For starters, it smells terrific. It’s light and fresh and feminine, not overpowering or perfumey. It’s delicate. And with one spritz, inhaled deeply, my mood changes. I feel lighter and sometimes giggly. Happy and relaxed. It sort of imparts a me-at-my-best feeling—and it seems to have that effect on other people as well.
I’ll allow, for the skeptics around here (we see you! we love you!), that this could just be placebo. I don’t think it is, but it’s possible that me thinking it will make me feel better…makes me feel better. Or maybe there’s something to the science of aromatherapy and flower essences—which are distinct, by the way—after all.
I like to use it on my hair after a long day, my skin post-shower, my friends, my pillows before bed. I also like to spray the entryway to my apartment when I’m expecting company, or in my office when I’m stressed out.
Have you tried these energy mists—or any others? Would you?
