I'm certain I would need a lot of hands to count the sheer volume of people I know that suffer from tension and muscle pain -- both the kind that is present in the day-to-day or the occasional pain that shows up in waves.
If this is all too familiar to you, you know that it can really dampen your overall experience of life in general.
In this post, I've compiled a list of flower essence rituals & mindful awareness practices that have personally helped me! And it's my hope that they can help you too! ; )
Flower essences typically work on the mental, energetic & spiritual bodies -- but there are several flower essences that have physical benefits too! Our Quiet Mind collection has helped many people get better sleep, feel less tension in their bodies & experience a more profound sense of mental clarity.
In particular, Dandelion flower essence, which is found in this champion blend,is one of the most valuable elixirs for physical discomfort. The humble Dandelion helps clear static and accumulated stress from our muscles & actually helps us identify how we store stress and tension in the body and allows us to release it, so you feel less knotty and more mobile.
Don't just take our word for it—hear firsthand how powerful Quiet Mind is for dissolving tension and helping you get to sleep!
If you suffer from chronic physical discomfort, take the Quiet Mind Elixirevery single day, 5 times a day. If you occasionally experience stress-induced tension in your neck & shoulders, keep a bottle of Quiet Mind Serum on hand. Massage the serum into these areas of tension and really concentrate on working it into those knotty areas.
Abhyanga is a massage that’s done with oil. The oil is applied on the entire body, from the scalp to the soles of your feet. The oil is the central component of this practice. When combined with massage strokes, it’s said to promote overall health & wellness. Our serums are great for this ancient Ayurvedic practice! It is always best to use high-quality & organic oils in abhyanga as they penetrate the skin easily without greasy residue. Our Quiet Mind & Inner Peace serums are particularly effective for soothing aching, tense and tired muscles.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient system of health and wellness that’s been used in China for thousands of years that looks at your entire well-being, and targets the root cause of imbalances. We've partnered with Erin Borbet, Acupuncturist & Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner, to strategically pair our flower essence-infused anointing oils with specific acupressure points to relieve pain & tension by harnessing the transformative effects of the flower essences.
Below is a diagram that illustrates the meridians in the body connected to pain & muscle tension. Grab whatever flower essence serum or anointing oil you have on hand & gently massage these points whenever you need relief!
Bathing in sea salt infused water is one of the quickest ways to promote relief to an achy, tired body, and mind! There are so many other benefits that include: stimulating circulation, easing muscle cramps, relieving stiff joints and soothing overworked legs & feet.
Our single-use bath salts are infused with flower & gem elixirs with exquisite aromatherapy. Each bath ritual comes with its own soaking meditation that you can listen to while you bathe, too!
Finally, one of the best practices to help us become more aware and attuned to our bodies & how it's feeling is meditation. This particular practice can be done at any time of the day, but it is especially wonderful before bedtime. I've recorded a Body Scan Meditation here to help you pinpoint any areas you need to pay attention.
Here's to less aches & living life with more presence!
