How Flowers Can Shift Your Emotions

Did you know that you might be drawn to a particular flower for a specific reason? 

Flowers are not only beautiful to look at, which of course releases happy and calming feelings, but they can impact our energy and emotions, too! 

The elixir from a particular flower can be ingested and can impact mental and emotional states. 

Katie Hess, author + flower alchemist, has written a gorgeous, transformative book, translating the wisdom and magic of flowers. Each flower has its own special message and teaching, and in Flowerrevolution, you'll discover: 

  • What your favorite flowers say about you
  • How the language of flowers can help you better understand yourself and your loved ones
  • Methods (ancient and modern) for tapping into each flower's unique quality.

In collaboration with award-winning filmmaker Louis Schwartzberg, the stunning photos and interactive exercises in Flowerrevolution invite us into the vast and beauty world of flowers, where natural isn't just a pretty picture of sublime scent, but a pathway to a fuller experience of life


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.

I was offered the chance to try one of the new Lotus Wei single flower essences in celebration of the book launch. I was shown a list of flowers and asked to choose the top few that resonated with me. Imagine my surprise when I was sent my top choice and the description matched exactly how I was feeling at that time!


Activate: Sweetness
Message: You’re among friends.

The Nectarine is so loveable, with its beautiful craggy limbs, gorgeous flowers and sweet juicy fruits. The blossoms have a delicate quality similar to cherry blossoms, but the flowers are larger and hardier. If you’re attracted to the Nectarine Blossom, you may be experiencing low- level annoyance, or feel that the energy in your environment is inflammatory, aggressive, or uncomfortable. Nectarine Blossom flower elixir magnifies tolerance, affection and thoughtfulness, enhancing the desire to be of service and perform random acts of kindness. It softens our character and brings out our good intentions and makes us feel like we are among friends.

The first thing I noticed about the nectarine blossom flower elixir is that is smells like heaven! It also has a slightly sweet taste that was very pleasant to drink. 

The flower elixirs are meant to be consumed five times per day. This may sound a little daunting, but it's not at all considering how yummy it is! You can either drop the elixir directly into your mouth, or mix it with water. 

I have used flower elixirs before and know that they work on a very gentle level, so I didn't expect to notice results so quickly! After just a few days of using my elixir regularly, I felt lighter, less annoyed and more excited to reach out to friends and make social plans.
