We are so excited to share Shangri-la Rose, Royal Chrysanthemum, and Blue Lotus are back in stock! To bring spring, beauty, and nourishment into more homes, we’re offering a limited time special with any box of flowers you purchase, we’ll send 3-flowers to one of your friends for free!
Below we also share with you some helpful wellness tips that hopefully will brighten the days working from home and spending more time indoors whether you’re by yourself or with loved ones.
Spring has finally sprung, and so have the flowers!
Our special flower teas are sourced from legacy terrior that holds true to the celebration and tradition of floral infusion. Drop a flower of your choice into a glass, pour hot water (195 degrees) over it to fill up the glass, and sip & enjoy. The Daily Ritual set is perfect for this break we’re all experiencing. Rose, lotus, and chrysanthemum blooms each harness the power of healing the soul, invigorating the spirit, and fostering connection with yourself and those around you. They are a great and easy way to start the day!
Wherever you are, take a second to practice your social distancing outside by a garden or under some cherry blossom trees. The weather has been especially nice, ironically now because we can’t really enjoy it, but buying yourself a bouquet at the supermarket (on an essential grocery run), opening the window to let in some fresh air and sun, or heading out to the backyard (or roof, or fire escape) can really help prolong the experience. Vitamin D and oxygen are essential in this tough time!
Free time means time to do things your heart has always desired to do, maybe because you haven’t had time due to work, school, relationships, or whatnot. Now is the perfect time to take a deep breath, try that new workout routine or makeup look. Crack open an old book that was purchased but never read. Dust your shelves or prep your meals—whatever your cup of tea is. Even though life may feel flipped upside-down right now, find stability in working from home, connecting with those in your space, or just winding down with yourself in mind. There’s never not a time for self-care!
Free time also means, simply, rest. If being busy and taking on new projects is not necessarily your thing, it doesn’t have to be. We can take this time to catch up on much-needed sleep. Emotional, physical, and mental rest is essential to the health of any human being; and sometimes those (especially in New York City) who get too caught up in work can forget that. Now can also be time to turn off the TV, put away the phone, and stay off of social media. Everything can wait until tomorrow (but maybe not work!).
Community and Environment
Videos all over social media are surfacing of Italian citizens coming together on their balconies to sing, and New Yorkers holding work out classes on their roof. Taking a step back from the hussle and bussle of life goes to show just how much people truly appreciate (and need) community. Life is too short spent with our noses in papers or screens, so this new sense of empowerment and appreciation is a figurative breath of fresh air. A literal breath of fresh air is much cleaner now because of it. The cease of transportation use, temporary closing of businesses, and move to online work spaces has really had an impact on the world we live in, and here’s to more positive change in the future.
So, what does this all mean? It means an event like this hasn’t happened in over a hundred years, so it makes sense why we’re not exactly sure what to do at this time. But with the help of each other and ourselves more than ever, we’ll find a way to adjust. So go buy yourself some seeds and get on that garden. Plant beautiful flowers, drink The Qi tea, and look to the brighter days.
