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.

On Refocusing

 

Refocus

I recently heard someone refer to September as “the new January”.  And I have to say I agree! September has always marked the beginning of a new year for me more so than the first of January.  September brings falling leaves, cool, crisp breezes and the feeling of cozying up to something new.  It is a month of refocusing and recalibrating after basking in the freedom of the warm summer sun.

In the spirit of refocusing we collaborated with energy rebalacer Amelie St. Pierre of Liberate your True Self to create the Refocus Ritual Pedicure.  A luxurious beauty ritual curated to ground oneself and inspire vision, focus and clarity to move forward with passion.

Clear Quartz, a stone useful for stimulating the crown chakra, the gateway to the expanded universe beyond one’s body, is one of the most beneficial crystals for bringing more clarity and focus into one’s life.  Clear quartz shines the light on what is important and where things might be amiss.  Quartz helps to align body and mind, which facilitates clarity of thought and speech as well as reception of intuitive information.

Kambaba Jasper helps one let go of fears in order to transform one’s life and encourages one to reach deep within to find hidden talents and capabilities they may not have known they possess.  Jasper is a powerful grounding stone.  It helps one let go of negativity and energizes and sustains the physical and energetic body.

Combining the properties of Clear Quartz with the nurturing and empowering properties of Jasper will help one adjust their inner and outer environment for increased harmony.

Frankincense Essential oil – An oil of enlightenment, inspiration and introspection.  Experience the calming, stress relieving properties of this essential oil in a warm facial compress during your pedicure.

Clear Mind Tea – An herbal, organic tea designed to awaken the mind, spark creative ideas and help with tasks and decision making.

Our Ritual Pedicure features extended massage time and facial compressing for deep, thoughtful relaxation.  

Gift yourself or someone you cherish with this experience.  Call us or book online at https://wildflowerbeautybar.ca/contact/


On Celebration

The soulful, sun filled days of Summer are upon us and in the spirit of the season our Ritual Pedicure for July and August is about CELEBRATION 

The elements of the Celebration Ritual Pedicure inspire an abundance of spirit and joy as well as feelings of appreciation and a sense of fulfillment in all areas of one’s life.

Citrine –  A stone carrying the energy of the sun.  Citrine’s energy is warm and comforting, energizing and life giving. It stimulates the chakras like the sunlight of summer and its frequency awakens creativity and imagination. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages fullness of life, fresh beginnings and new pursuits. 

Green Jade – An abundance stone associated with the heart chakra.  Green jade represents the flow of Divine energy into the reality of one’s life [Ahsian, pp 210] . 

 The verdant shades of green jade are associated with growth and vitality.   Jade energy reminds us to smell the flowers, cherish the ones we love, and to share our heart with others so we may relish in the abundance in and around us all. 

Essential oil of Geranium – The positive, uplifting scent of geranium essential oil is said to calm the mind and restore emotional balance while ironing out irrationality and discontent.  The gentle, kind quality of geranium essential oil reminds one to take a moment to celebrate all that is. 

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.

Pyrite – Known as a stone of action, vitality and will.  The vibrations of Pyrite help activate one’s abilities and potential, stimulating the flow of ideas. Pyrite brings confidence, commitment and the persistence to carry things through to completion.

On Good Fortune

We so often hear “treat yourself” or “indulge” and while there are infinite ways to do this there are fewer ways to make that treat or indulgence an ongoing gift to yourself.  We created the Ritual pedicure in collaboration with energy rebalancer Amélie St. Pierre of Liberate your True Self to inspire self care habits that can enliven and rejuvenate your spirit, and help relieve daily stresses. Our Ritual Pedicures feature botanical filled crystal charged foot soaks you can recreate at home as your own foot soak or as a bath.  In spa the treatment will include extended soak time and extended neck and shoulder massage time with featured essential oils.

Citrine – A heartwarming and bright stone with a bright energy. Citrine is a stone of abundance and positivity. It will reenergize your self esteem and aid in future manifestation.
