We live in an era of distraction. Every day we’re faced with overflowing inboxes, numerous text messages, hundreds of social media notifications and to-do lists that grow new tails by the moment.
Flower essences can help combat this kind of overwhelm and focus on what you need to do.
In today’s world, it’s all about making decisions quickly and efficiently. It’s about determining what’s absolutely essential—and what we can let go of in every moment. Time is so precious! And we never get these moments back.
Yet we try to do it all, cramming in an impossible amount of activity. We don’t allow ourselves enough spaciousness in our schedules for spontaneous inspiration.
I find this particular "bouquet" of flower essences to be extremely helpful in this modern world when we’re presented with so many opportunities and decisions as to what to do with our time.
I have an Inspired Action Mist on my desk in my office and I use it every hour when I really need to be focused. It’s a hugely valuable tool when I’m writing, working on creative projects and need to get huge amounts of tasks done. It prevents me from getting distracted and makes sure I channel all my energy into the most important and impactful projects.
Imagine if every person in the world was focused on the most vital tasks that would create the most positive impact in the world … allowing vast amounts of sheer brilliance and innovation to emerge!
This exotic flower blooms in the desert and thrives even when it’s 115 degrees out—when every other plant, animal and person wants to hide. With fiery explosions of red, orange and yellow, this flower looks like a crown of wild flaming orchids reaching for the sun.
Red Bird of Paradise flower essence gives a huge boost of motivation, drive and the ability to get things done. It helps you focus on your most important priorities instead of get lost in all the little easy, unimportant tasks.
It’s the perfect remedy for when you find yourself procrastinating—when you’ve got frogs to eat or when there’s something on your to-do list that you don’t feel like doing.
When you feel overwhelmed with too much to do, this flower gives you the energy and ability to get it done effortlessly, without any internal pushback or dragging of your feet.
An exquisite epidendrum orchid, I discovered this flower growing in a very special garden in Santa Monica, California.
Called the "ever-blooming jewels of the garden," these beauties enhance creativity, innovation and being fearless about sharing ideas that are beyond the norm.
Even better, Fire Star Orchid gives you the ability to see beyond what you’ve seen so far, inspiring all sorts of new perspectives and solutions. Excellent for creatives and innovators, this flower helps you think completely outside the box, taking your creativity to a whole other level.
Or, if you tend to let others’ opinions affect you or stifle your wild creativity—or you’re too hard on yourself and constantly self-edit—this is the flower for you.
An amazing succulent flower with tubular flowers that hang down like bells in the shape of a chandelier, these flowers are loved by hummingbirds, who can fit their long, delicate beaks into each flower.
A part of the large family of extremely varied Kalanchoe succulents, this flower helps you finish projects. It awakens in you an unwavering determination, momentum and action until you attain completion.
It also gives you a sense of foundation, strength and energy to move through any blocks. It cuts through any stagnancy and jump-starts your ability to follow through with your plans.
It helps you experience—on all levels—that you have what it takes, and facilitates synergy and teamwork in groups, enhancing a deeper awareness.
An exquisite wildflower of yellow, white and light purple found across mountainous forests in North America, Europe and Asia, Euphrasia is also known as Eyebright.
Herbally, this flower dates back to the 14th century as the plant that soothes all eye conditions. Flower essence-wise, this delicate but fierce flower works on how you "see," developing and awakening your intuitive side. Oftentimes it’s intuition that sparks the best ideas, making Euphrasia an important flower for creativity.
Or you may have a tendency to doubt yourself or have a hard time deciding between all the choices presented to you. You belabor it for a while, then eventually choose one option. Then you either regret your choice or wonder if you made the "right" choice.
Euphrasia boosts decisiveness. It helps you trust yourself and your decisions. It cuts through indecision and self-doubt, helping you get crystal clear on the best way to go.
In each of our blends, we also add one gemstone elixir! Each gemstone is carefully chosen to further enhance + magnify the effects of the flower alchemy. Fluorite heightens our intuitive powers + transforms our ordinary perception of the world beyond the five senses. The characteristics of Fluorite make it the perfect learning aid: it helps absorb new information, promotes one-pointed focus and inspires us to think outside of the box. We infuse Inspired Actionwith Fluorite for profound clarity + inspirational drive!
These are two flower elixirs that we feel are so important, we put them in every formula we make! We infuse blend with Pink Lotus (wisdom + insights) and Yarrow (re-energize after being on cell phone/computer). Pink Lotus is also a "catalyst flower essence," strengthening and boosting the synergistic effects of every blend.
The aromatherapy for Inspired Action is bright and refreshing with a hint of spice, infused with Citrus, Cardamom and Pink Pepper. Feels like stepping into the warm sunshine and supercharging with its rays!
