On Awakening Your Inherent Talents and Gifts

This month our Ritual Pedicure focuses on awakening your inherent talents and gifts.

April’s Ritual focused on planting seeds of growth and this month’s Ritual works forward from that theme.  Allow the seeds planted and nurtured in the early Spring to bloom and inspire new life.

The stones featured in this Ritual are Carnelian and Apatite.

These stones bring a boost of vitality, creativity, and courage awakening inherent talents and stimulating extrasensory skills and the Soul’s gifts.

Carnelian increases this work on a physical level working through the Sacral Chakra, while Apatite stimulates the Throat Chakra to promote the expansion of the Soul’s strength within the body.  Both gemstones support the manifestation of one’s goal through increased perception and aligned action.

Lotus Wei Inspired Action Flower Essence:  Flower essences of Firestar Orchid, Euphrasia, Chandelier Succulent and Red Bird of Paradise help enhance motivation, productivity + follow-through while increasing drive, clarity, insight, inspiration and decisiveness.  This blend helps inspire innovation and creativity.

Bergamot and Orange Essential Oil blend:  Bergamot essential oil is said to provide protection, prosperity, and happiness and helps to boost inner confidence and inner courage, by igniting trust in the Divine. Orange essential oil stimulates circulation, and helps combat fatigue and lethargy.  Orange essential oil is said to awaken the heart energy to comfort and love.

Enjoy this joy stimulating scent during a warm facial compress.  

Liberate Your True Self Ritual Tea, Elevated Journey.  Fortify yourself with a cup of this powerful blend of herbs which promote energy and stamina.

Our Ritual Pedicures include extended massage times, a warm facial compress and lots of TLC.

On the meaning of Holistic Esthetics

In the holistic approach to skincare we address that the external world reflects the internal world.  The body is seen as a whole entity with connecting parts working together to sustain body, mind and spirit.  As such, your complexion is a reflection of what is happening inside the body.  Qi, blood and lymph must be free to flow in order to maintain and sustain life.  Energy and emotions must be addressed and balanced in order to avoid problems and imbalances in the mind, body and thereby skin.

Qi is the vital energy constituting the human body.  In relation to skin health, when energy is imbalanced or stagnant it can add to the physical signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation or lack of vitality.  If blood flow is imbalanced or stagnant it can lead to devitalized skin, blotchy skin or rosacea.  If lymph flow is stagnant it can lead to dull, grey skin, acne/breakouts, and puffiness.  With different modalities such as facial mapping, facial gua sha, facial cupping, and so much more to come we can address you and your skin as one interconnected being.  With our holistic approach to beauty we aim to empower you with the knowledge of what is happening just below the skin so you can make more informed decisions regarding your skin’s care and deepen your connection to true beauty and well being.

On Planting Seeds of Growth

This month’s Ritual Pedicure focuses on planting seeds of growth.

Spring is a time of renewal and I find that this applies not only to the seasons but also to our lives.  Leaving the cave of winter hibernation and introspection we re-enter the world with renewed energy and a fresh outlook.

The featured gemstones in this month’s pedicure are Shiva Shell and Snow Quartz.

Shiva shell contains powerful sacred geometry that represents the flow of life and the universal knowledge that what is within and what is without are one and the same. Meaning that your life is a representation of your inner garden. And so springtime is a good time to contemplate on the seeds (thoughts, emotions, activities) you are planting in your inner garden and make a conscious effort to nurture the seeds you want to see grow.

Snow Quartz will help with bring mental clarity so you can contemplate the thoughts and emotions you are watering in your inner garden. It also teaches patience which is needed when we have a desire to grow and take a different direction. Snow Quartz has a softer feminine energy which can help you tap into the intuitive aspect of yourself and flow with ease in that new direction instead of forcing things to happen.

Lotus Wei’s Game Changer flower essence blend: This powerful blend of flower essences rebalances one with effortlessness, simplicity and lighthearted action.  It encourages rapid growth, creativity and spaciousness of mind.

Rosemary essential oil: A highly revered essential oil for enlightenment. This essential oil has a stimulating, invigorating and refreshing aroma that will uplift you.  It is thought to provide good luck and protection.

Our Ritual Pedicures include extended massage times, a warm facial compress and lots of TLC.

On Rest, Gentle Care and Beauty

Facial treatment Port Moody

Often times restful, gentle treatments aren’t equated to “effective” in the skincare world. In history many of us have been taught to believe aggressive treatments – high concentration acid products, frequent exfoliation & deep peeling for example, are the most effective ways to achieving dreamy skin but I’d like to share that they are not.

There is much to be said for a gentler approach that allows the body to go into a state of deep rest, the parasympathetic mode, or rest and reset mode.

Ever wonder why your skin looks amazing after a relaxing holiday? It’s the rest and the release  of stress that vitalizes the body and enlivens the skin.

We spend a lot of our days in stress mode; Busy “doing” and working all day long which causes a lot of wear and tear on our bodies. In stress mode the body’s digestion is slowed,
hormone production is unbalanced, and increased oxidation and inflammation, the root causes of skin aging, wreak havoc on the body. Entering a calmer, restful state is extremely beneficial for skin health and your general state of well being as it is in this mode that the body can repair itself. It’s in this mode that the body can re-balance and do the work it needs to do to stay vital rather than just fighting to sustain itself.

Our massage focused facial treatments are designed to help you enter this deep, relaxed state while also physically and energetically fine tuning your skin.

Benefits of facial massage include:

  • Increased skin radiance. As blood and lymph flow is encouraged the skin is nourished
    and detoxified resulting in a radiant complexion.
  • Contouring and lifting of the face. As muscles are relaxed the face is easily shaped and
    contoured.
  • Visible lifting and smoothing of the skin. As facial fascia is rehydrated and smoothed
    the skin is naturally lifted and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is diminished.
  • A heightened sense of well being is achieved as the parasympathetic system is
    activated.

This is how true radiance is achieved and more importantly maintained. This is where deep
and lasting skin transformation happens.

Facial massage is part of all our skin treatments. At time of treatment we will address your skin
concerns and provide you with a customized skincare plan.

On Good Luck

It’s the month of the lucky leprechaun, four leaf clovers and verdant shades of green.  

This month’s ritual pedicure is all about luck.  I personally don’t believe in luck per se; I believe in universal support.  Think about the times you’ve been “lucky”; Was that luck or universal support?  I believe it’s support.  We’re here to live our best lives and when we’re in line with our soul’s purpose and clear away limiting beliefs and energies that no longer serve us, I believe we align ourselves with the support, or “luck”, that is necessary to achieve our goals.    

This month’s combination of gemstones is Jade and Green Aventurine for an extra boost of luck, or as I like to think about it, a way of vibrationally aligning or opening oneself to receiving universal support.

Green Aventurine stimulates wit and creativity to help reveal opportunities you may have overlooked in the past. It also supports one in taking action. 

Jade is one of the master stones of dreaming and manifesting.  It is a stone thought to align one with increased wealth and health.

Lotus Wei Wild Abundance Flower Essence – The essences of peony, jasmine, gardenia and white water lily help one celebrate the divine beauty, abundance and magic in everyday life.

Tea Tree oil:  A strengthening essential oil said to open mental channels, provide mental clarity and unclog upper chakras.

Liberate Your True Self  “Fairy Wisdom” Tea:  A  flowery blend herbs to promote playfulness and connection with earth elementals.  

As always, our Ritual Pedicure includes extended massage times, a warm facial compress and lots of TLC.

On Love

It’s that time of year again where stores are filled with heart shaped everything. I’ve always been ambivalent to Valentine’s day but in recent years I’ve noticed this day of love has evolved into a celebration of not just romantic love but of self love, familial love and friend love to name a few and I like that! There are so many different relationships to celebrate why limit it to just one type? With this in mind we curated February’s Ritual Pedicure to align us with giving and receiving all types of love.

Moonstone and Rose Quartz are the perfect stones for this month’s ritual as they enhance our ability to attract and receive love.
Often times, we keep love at bay from an unconscious fear of not being good enough. Moonstone helps us release some of the protective barriers we have set up and become more receptive to receiving love.
Rose Quartz is also well known for its properties of enhancing all types of love, including self-love. Let this combination of gemstones align you with the abundance of love available to you.

Our rose filled pedicure bowls will be charged with the loving energy of Moonstone and rose quartz as well as coconut milk to hydrate, nourish and support you.

Rose Otto Essential oil – A warm facial compress will introduce you to this collagen stimulating, stress relieving pure essential oil that is said to help boost self confidence and enliven the heart. It is known to have a great effect on the heart chakra, as it raises one’s frequency to the high notes of unconditional love and divine abundance.

Lotus Wei Fierce Compassion Flower Essence mist: Rose, hollyhock, mandevilla and rhododendron flower essences are combined to empower you to love, nurture and care for yourself, increase your confidence in relationships and heal emotional wounds.

Liberate Your True Self’ “Sacred Heart” Tea – A specially selected blend of herbs to open your heart and evoke more love for  yourself and in your life.  

All Ritual pedicures include extended neck and shoulder massage as well as lower leg and foot massage.

Indulge yourself or share the experience with someone special.

Momentum Ritual Pedicure

 

A new year..

In history, I personally haven’t felt a sense of “newness”or “momentum” at this time of year but 2019 has ushered in some STRONG feelings of growth for me personally and professionally.  It’s uncomfortable and to be honest frightening; So much so that I’ve tried to talk myself out of it.  There’s a safety in staying comfortable and small, no?  But all signs point to growth.  So here I am stewing in the discomfort of growing pains.  

When I brainstorm themes for the ritual pedicure I think of themes that match the season in which they fall so I thought “momentum” was appropriate for January as it is conventionally associated with moving forward but I had my doubts because I felt it sounded a bit cliché.  My feelings changed when Amelie, the energetic rebalancer I collaborate with for our Ritual Pedicures, sent me her write up about the stone she chose for the momentum theme.  It couldn’t be more perfect for what I’m experiencing this new year and I hope it will provide some support for your endeavours as well.  

I wish each and every one of you a 2019 filled with growth and expansion and thank you from the bottom of my grateful heart for your support in the growth of Wildflower.  

Pietersite, the perfect stone for the beginning of a new year.  Pietersite helps you create change in your life by first helping you to connect with your spirit and the power of your imagination to dream and create beautiful visions and ideals for your life.  It then helps you to let go of unwanted habits by increasing your willpower and helps you to take action.  Hold this stone in the palm of your hand while you soak in a warm and comforting coconut milk infused foot bath. 

Frankincense and orange essential oil:  Thought of as a spiritual essential oil, frankincense offers protection, fortitude, courage and resolution.  It increases introspection, spiritual awareness and inspiration.  Orange essential oil is known to be energetically purifying and uplifting, it boosts creativity, increases focus and calms the spirit.  Inhale the scent of these essential oils under a warm facial compress.

Lotus Wei’s Game changer flower essence:  A blend of giant spider lily, date palm flower, banana blossom and pink primrose.  This transformative blend of flower essences created by Lotus Wei invites effortlessness, simplicity and lighthearted action while inspiring rapid growth, creativity and spaciousness.

On Calmness and Serenity

The holidays can be hectic on all levels… physical, emotional, mental and energetic. It’s easy to book ourselves solid with events – sometimes events we don’t even want to attend, to indulge in too much food and alcohol even when our body is asking us to slow down, to give into the pressure of keeping up with gift giving even if it means putting ourselves in a difficult financial situation.  This season can become very taxing on the body if we don’t take time to take care of ourselves. 

To help you stay sane in the midst of the holiday frenzy we created the Calmness and Serenity Ritual Pedicure with energy rebalancer, Amelie St. Pierre of Liberate your True self.

 Amethyst and Tourmaline – This blend of gemstones can help bring a sense of serenity, reduce addictive behaviours, and protect your body from emotional overwhelm. Amethyst and Tourmaline will help you remain grounded and clear headed so you can make decisions that are more aligned with the real meaning of Christmas, which is meaningful connections and generosity of spirit.

Geranium Essential oil – known to be a powerful protectant that keeps negative energies away and provides a balancing, uplifting vibration.  Geranium essential oil is said to strengthen the etheric body and helps to focus an overwhelmed mind.  

Lotus Wei Radiant Energy flower essence blend:  Pomegranate flower, red clover, navel orange blossom and jade flower essences combine to help reveal your radiance, vitality and strength.  This synergistic blend of flower essences can help you rebalance and awaken sensuality, warmth and presence.

On connecting to your soul’s purpose

 

November, a month of reflection and remembrance..

In the hustle and bustle of daily life I find it easy to get stuck in just “doing”.  The “doing” of repetitive daily activities that may have once fed your soul’s purpose but which overtime may have become something you do for lack of knowing what to do next.

In an effort to create space for reconnecting to your soul’s purpose and to the infinite possibility and creation that exists for us all we have curated November’s Ritual Pedicure.

For the times when a weekend away from life isn’t possible, an hour to yourself to step away from it all and go inwards may be just what you need to reconnect with your self, your soul and your purpose.

Silver Leaf Jasper helps you find your truthful path in life and brings a sense of security and stability.  It gives you the strength to stand up for what you believe in.  The guidance that silver leaf jasper offers will lead you to your most enlightened self. 

Rhodonite activates the Heart Chakra and motivates you to attain your greatest potential, which is only possible when your thoughts and actions are guided by the wisdom of the heart, the seat of your soul.   

The powerful combination of these stones supports you in remembering your path and gives you the strength to walk it with confidence and faith.

Frankincense essential oil – Experience the earthy aroma of this essential oil in a warm facial compress.  The calming and relaxing properties of this oil can be helpful for visualizing, grounding, and improving one’s spiritual connection.

Lotus Wei’s Joy Juice Flower Essence blend – Awaken joy, laughter and happiness.  Magnify recognition of your talents & life’s path.

On Gratitude

On Gratitude

I used to roll my eyes whenever I heard the saying “to have more you must first appreciate what you have”.  I was like sure, sure.. I appreciate “x” so where’s my ‘y’?

Now I get it.  I was missing a link – GRATITUDE.  That deep, all encompassing, feel-y kind of appreciation.  When we feel gratitude we awaken JOY and with that joy comes the feeling of abundance.  A beautiful circle.  Gratitude, joy, abundance.  I don’t mean that Birken bags will suddenly start falling from the sky into your lap (I wouldn’t cut that out of the picture though, just sayin’).  But gratitude has shown me that abundance exists in the EVERYTHING.  Gratitude has created space in my heart and in my mind for infinite possibility.  Opening up the world so huge that very possibly, one day soon Birken bags could be falling into my lap 😉  Having said that I understand that the feeling of gratitude is not always easy to come by; It’s a personal journey (sorry, that’s the caveat).  Personally I’ve found time alone and meditation very helpful in opening my eyes to all I have to be grateful for. 

This month, in the hopes of inspiring gratitude, joy and abundance we collaborated with Amelie St. Pierre of Liberate Your True Self to curate the Gratitude Ritual Pedicure.  

Citrine – this sunny yellow quartz brings a sense of joy and abundance.  It enhances generosity of spirit and helps one to understand and experience the abundance that comes from selflessness. 

Peacock Ore – This gemstone’s rainbow of colour surrounds you with light and inspires positivity. It also has the properties to combat negativity.  For this month’s ritual the stone is to be held in your hand.  If you choose to you may set an intention such as “I am surrounded by light and peace”.  Working with these rainbow coloured stones can inspire a sense of inner peace allowing you to find joy in the present moment.

Cedarwood essential oil.  An oil that balances the root chakra, our foundation which connects us to all that is via our physical body.  Imagine yourself rooting into the ground, connecting to and energizing your lifeforce as you inhale the earthy aroma of this essential oil during a heated facial compress.

Lotus Wei “Wild Abundance” flower essence.  This combination of peony, gardenia, jasmine, white water lily, yarrow and lotus flower essences awakens us to the divine beauty and magic that exists in everyday life.  

This month let’s dive deep and make room in our hearts and minds for gratitude.  

Our Ritual Pedicure is 75 minutes and includes a 15 min neck, shoulder and upper back massage.
