Lotus Wei Review

Hello Lovelies,




Where do I start? The day I got my package from Lotus Wei I was having a super crappy day plus I had to walk four kilometres to my post office with my little princess to pick up the parcel, because I missed the post man the day before. Everything that could go wrong, did - it was that sort of the day! So l didn't know whether to cry or explode once I finally got home, but guess what? I opened a beautiful package by LotusWei and misted those beautiful concoctions into the air.. And guess what? Two minutes later all was well in the world! Amazing! 💕 I don't know how they work, but they most definitely do! I couldn't put them down all evening that day, and the next morning I reached for those first thing in the morning, before my lemon water/coffee. On my second day  in, I announced I am addicted for life already. No wonder so many of you recommended them in my Top Three Natural Products post!


Lotus Wei was the brand I wanted to try for ages, ever since I heard about them a few years ago, you know when you "get" the brand before even trying their products? That is exactly the case here. I should also add that I am your regular person, not "hippyish" at all, no smudging or crystal healing anything for me please. If you are into those things, l salute you, more power to you! But for me, I am practical person who puts family and kids first, and never has time to delve into those things deeper.
Flower remedies are not new to me, I have tried several brands before, but none of them worked for me, probably due to the fact that I was self prescribing them, but on another hand I only tried calming remedies, not some specific flower essences, so I feel they should work for everyone, right?
So I decided to try Lotus Wei once anxiety got the better of me, in hopes that it might help, and I am so overjoyed it did! I am your natural born worrier, leave me alone with my thoughts and I will drive myself crazy, my brain loves working overtime playing all these worst "what will happen if this will happen" scenarios in my head. Yep, that is me all over.

According to Lotus Wei, “Flower alchemy is simply another way of receiving the nourishing properties of plants — but instead of taking in oxygen, you’re taking in pure flower essences, suspended in water— liquid energy that transforms your mood + your mind through your acupuncture meridians.” Katie Hess is a flower alchemist + the founder of Lotus Wei — one of the world’s leading floral apothecaries.You can find out more about her in the "press kit" tab on their website.
 If you are newbie like me and simply don't know where to start, there is a helpful 'flower quiz' and then they email you results. In my case they suggested Inner Peace and Joy Juice products, and that's exactly what they sent me, along with my requested sampler kit, huge thank you for that, Lotus Wei if you are reading this! They do a few variations of the products too, mists, serums, anointing oils and elixirs, as well as perfumes. I will touch down on how to use those products in just a minute. Most people feel a dramatic difference in their everyday state of mind within 2-3 days, with a cumulative effect over time. If used regularly, bottle lasts 3-4 weeks, enough time to experience a significant shift in mood and everyday life. Safe (& excellent) for children.



Sampler kit contains six flavours or scents there are more of them available separately though. But in the kit you will get six, whether it will be mist or serums kit - that includes Joy Juice, Radiant Energy, Inner Peace, Inspired Action, Quiet Mind and Infinite Love. The latter two are my favourite from the bunch and that is exactly the ones I am going to repurchase. I never want to be without Infinite Love ever again! It is designed for other things, but this is exactly the one that calms me down, after smelling this (and maybe a cup of tea) all is well in the world for me.

INFINITE LOVE:

“Experience: Unconditional love for yourself & others; attract love + affection, enhanced magnetism, attractiveness + charisma. Magnifies gentleness, compassion, softness + receptivity.


Dissolves: Irritation, being hard on yourself, hard heart, feeling attacked, resentment, anger, jealousy, codependency, giving away all your energy to others and forgetting your own needs, past trauma, breaking through old patterns.”

Aroma: Exquisite Rose, Red Mandarin, & Honey

(My two cents on it - this smells "happy!" that is the way I describe it when asked, you can't feel the rose in it (fear not if you are not a fan of roses smell) and it has just a touch of honey, so it is not too sweet other, it is just just uplifting and nice smell).

INNER PIECE:

Experience: Deep peace, calm, confidence, comfort + contentment; strength + assuredness during times of high-stress.

Dissolves: High levels of stress & overwhelm; feeling a lack of support; nervousness, fear, lack of confidence, nervous about public speaking

Aroma: {Herbal Spice} Calming, grounding lavender, cedar, vetiver, geranium. Great for kids.


QUIET MIND:

Experience: Clarity, focus, relaxed body, quiet mind, sound sleep, ability to take breaks + be more effective


Dissolves: Busy mind, mental chatter, restless sleep, physical tension (especially neck & shoulders), over-analyzing

This is a very pleasant calming scent and I enjoy it a lot! Definitely a repurchase, a must for my over anxious mind. Highly recommend it is you are like me and worry a lot.

INSPIRED ACTION:

Experience: Motivation, drive, follow through, decisiveness, fearless creativity, innovation, intuition, synchronicity, tackling your big goals, finishing projects.



Dissolves: Procrastination, lack of follow through, feeling stuck, writer's block, indecision, projects left undone, distracted mind.

RADIANT ENERGY:

Experience: Energy, vitality, protection, strength, powerful presence, immune system boost, gentle cleanse of environmental toxins, recharge after air travel, computer use, x-rays.



Dissolves: Fatigue due to computer & cell phone use, air travel; accumulation of energies that are not your own; vulnerability, whether physically or energetically; taking on others' stress; feeling invisible, weak, or not clear about what you want.

JOY JUICE:

Experience: Joy, laughter, euphoria, contentment, simplicity, playful, letting your inner child come out, enjoying life more


Dissolves: Seriousness, feeling the weight of responsibilities, worry, overcomplicating things, repressing your inner child

Aroma: Jasmine, Sweet Orange, Davana (strawberry-like), Rosewood.

(My two cents on it - despite this aroma being recommended to me after taking flower quiz, this ended up not agreeing with me at all. I would disagree with the description, this has not sweet aromas in it, all I got was jasmine, wood and something else I disliked, so no matter how much I tried to like and use it, every time I opened the bottle I couldn't deal with it, so in order for it not to be wasted, I ended up swapping it in a green beauty swap.)



How to Use Mists:

With the mist, spray it above and over your face and shoulders. Spray it five times a day on your clothes, pillows, bed room and basically anything. What I like to do is spray above my head 2-3 times and lift my face and step into the droplet cloud. I know it’s kind of quirky, but letting the scent rain on my face is relaxing. My little princess makes sure she joins me in too.


How to use anoiting oils:

Apply to pulse-points 5 times daily. My note: these scents won't be as strong as you might expect, these are all natural flower essences (which have no smell by the way!) and essential oils and they do not have chemical or synthetic fixatives or preservatives (which have been shown to cause attention deficit issues + disturb neurological + hormone functioning).


How to use serums:

Apply to face morning and night--especially after computer use. Can also massage your ears and the back of your neck. Make sure to check individual serum's description on their website, as they can be used different ways, for example Radiant Energy serum can be used for menstrual cramps, cellulite and cold climates to warm you up!



How to use elixirs:

Enjoy 5 drops sublingually 5 times each day regularly until bottle is finished; or put 25 drops in your water bottle each morning and drink throughout the day.

Or get creative with it - morning coffee, party punch, restaurants, water bottle, kid’s water or juice, pet’s water, cocktails.


So, what's my verdict and experience with Lotus Wei? Very positive and pleasant I would say! This made me flower remedies convert, and despite liking other products than those suggested for me, I fell in love with them. Pricy, yes, but I highly recommend trying some, if it works on calming me down and helping me not to stress so much (or calm down massive strop thrown by my three year old) than it's worth every penny. I will rather go without something else to be honest (in order to have this). A must have product in my life.
In Europe you can get those from Naturisimo and Being Content, both are my fave UK based websites with outstanding service and free shipping. Being Content has a brick and mortar shop as well, and if You are lucky enough to visit it in London, then I am jel of you :) They only have mists, while Naturisimo also has serums, mists and anointing oils but no perfumes. I purchased the Infinite Love anointing oil but I have yet to receive it, and I will make sure to update the blog post once it arrives. Love forever it is! Can easily replace perfume I would say, as it could be smelled a few hours later. Having to re-apply it does not bother me one bit either, as I couldn't let it go from my hands either way, so it makes it more fun I would say. Small bottle is perfect for travelling too.

Have you tried Lotus Wei products and what's your experience with them? Please share with me, I would love to know :)


That is all for now, see you here next Monday!

Lots of Love,
Renata.
