Happy Friday Deal from Lotus Wei!
Happy very exciting Friday, everyone! It’s Lotus Wei’s day, and they have some new goodies.
Longtime readers of the site—and certainly anyone who knows me personally—knows I’m a flower essence junkie. I have mists on my desk at the office. I carry perfume and elixirs in my handbag at all times. Next to the bed there’s always a spray and an oil. I’ve often said that the world would be a better place if we all took Infinite Love every day, and I’m even concocting a scheme to sneak Joy Juice drops into people’s drinking water at my wedding in July. They’ve been a staple in my life for several years now, and while I still can’t explain exactly why, I will say this: I believe they work.
Lotus Wei‘s founder likes to say that flower essences connect you with nature, which is a sweet thought and a big part of the appeal. They also connect you to your own true nature—which is, in all cases, a sweet nature (even if some people who don’t always act like it). Plus, because Katie uses natural scents with her flower essences, which are odorless, they all smell amazing and are instant mood changers. But the real magic of flower essences seems to happen over time.
We’ve all gone through periods in life when everything feels like it’s in alignment: when our work is truly reflecting the best of what we can contribute to the world and our relationships have a certain ease and flow, and the subway always seems to arrive right when we get to the platform. Yeah, I don’t always live there either. But I find that when I’m regularly taking flower essences, particularly in elixir form, I’m a little more likely to feel like that.
All right, now for the nitty gritty: A site-wide 15% discount plus a free Truthteller Lip Balm with each order. The code is NMDL15 and the deal lasts until next Thursday at midnight.
I recently got to sample some of Lotus Wei’s new limited-edition products, including the slightly tinted flower remedy lip balm—”to help you speak your truth”—and they’re all lovely. I especially love the new anointing oils, and if I was a very generous yoga teacher I would use this on my students during savasana. Instead, I use them on myself and my fiancé and my friends. (The Healing Sleep one, which is probably the best-named product I can think of, is by the bed. Who doesn’t want/need healing sleep?) Not to play favorites but the real standout for me in the new collection is the Luscious Life oil, which smells like hiking in Maine on a hot summer day. It’s got a slightly sweet earthy mossy honey smell that completely takes me away.
While we’re on the topic, we’d love to know: Have you ever tried flower remedies? And if so, what’s your favorite and what’s been your experience? Tell, tell.
