Lady of the Lotus Botanicals was born out of blends created for personal use. I still use these botanicals on a daily basis, for myself and family. In fact, I keep a stash on the nightstand by the bed, benefiting from aromatherapy & blessing misters before and during sleep. They are so helpful, clearing the air and personal energy field, inducing a positive state of mind while encouraging creative dreaming and peaceful sleep.
Evening/nighttime blends are chosen based on the goals and activities in my daily life, as well as my physical state of being at a given time. The body rests and heals during sleep, so working with intention and creating a seamless transition between waking life and sleep, encourages conscious healing and life changes. Blessing Mister and Aromatherapy blends are also a great match for before bedtime restorative yoga, meditation, writing or brainstorming/creative pursuits, as well as for dream yoga/lucid dreaming preparation.
Here's what's on my nightstand (pictured above) right now:
Jasmine Shakti Blessing Mister: Jasmine is universally loved, with it's alluring, evocative yet calming, peaceful and uplifting scent. Jasmine is a renown aphrodisiac, eases anxiety and depression and connects one to the senses and body. It's voluptuous! I find Jasmine to be a great match for ecstatic poets such as Rumi, Kabir and Lalla, too. It's perfect for summertime, as it's a cooling scent, yet excellent for winter when a little 'light therapy' and 'virtual tropical vacation' is needed.
Meditation Aromatherapy: One of my all time faves, the combination of Myrrh, Holy Basil and Spearmint with Mugwort flower essence creates an immediate shift in consciousness and the space in the room. Protective & nourishing, while grounding in that sacred space sort of way.
Victory Aromatherapy: Powerful protection and purifying, with Wild Spikenard and Bay Laurel, Victory is very unique and potent. Works magically to clear your personal energy field, while deepening inner strength and resolve in an instant. If you're sensitive to energy flow, this effects of this blend are visibly and viscerally seen and felt quickly, in my experience. Wild Spikenard has a bit of a Freesia/Licorice scent, while Bay Laurel is mildly spicy and crisp. A number of other essential oils, including Ravensara-similar to Frankincense in scent and affect, are blended to create this powerful spray. Originally created with the concept of personal sovereignty/victory in mind, it addresses physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual needs for strength, immunity and endurance on the path and in your life.
Sensual Aromatherapy: Heady and floral with Jasmine, Sandalwood and Rose, this blend is comforting, nourishing and elegant, providing a protective and inspired ambiance. Sensual makes a great aphrodisiac, calms the emotions in cases of heartache and uplifts the mind, balancing emotions. Sandalwood is commonly used to ease insomnia, while Rose of course opens and calms the heart. A delightful and valuable blend that brings light to the night's sleep.
Although it sounds cliche, I'm continually amazed by how powerful these little sprays are. A few spritzes from a small bottle reverberate throughout my life, positively impacting my night's sleep and the next day's outcome, too! What aromas are on your nightstand? Do you have a favorite? Bring alchemy into your life...in both the waking dream and nighttime dreaming, as the two worlds become more radiant with clarity and luminous splendor, with nature's aromatic Intelligence as your consort. May you enjoy and benefit from the power of essential oils, aromatherapy and nature's fine intelligence!
Wishing you radiant health and a beauty filled day...from Lady of the Lotus xx00
