JTG #45 Flower Elixirs With Katie Hess Founder of Lotuswei
Did you know that there’s such a thing as a Flower Alchemist?
And did you know that the innate healing intelligence contained in the essence of a flower can act on our emotional, physical and mental bodies?
I’ve witnessed firsthand the incredible healing power of flower elixirs (I tell the whole story on the episode 45) and Katie, founder of @lotuswei, has a lot to share as to why they WORK and why you may want to consider adding flower essences to your plant farmacy.
What a treat to have Katie Hess, founder of LotusWei on the podcast to talk about the healing qualities of flower essences.
Andrew and I discovered flower essences over the summer when we went through a tremendously challenging time losing our beloved Chellicat to cancer. In this episode, you’ll hear me share this story of loss and grief and how I was able to stay present to difficult emotions and circumstances thanks to the healing powers of flower essences, essential oils and a tonne of self-care.

As a green-beauty junkie, I've been on a my mission to find non-toxic, natural products that are high performing AND fit my skin’s unique needs.
After spending thousands of dollars on products but not seeing improvement with my skin, I started researching essential oils.
I discovered 5 that targeted my skin's dehydration and inflammation, so I immediately put them to the test.
After 2 weeks of testing 100% certified pure essential oils, I noticed a huge improvement on the texture and hydration of my skin.
