Qi pounced chee means life energy or life force in Chinese.
The Qi is a new wellness brand inspired by thousands of years of eastern holistic healing wisdom. Our mission is to make nourishing yourself simple and joyful inside and out. We started the Qi because there are many proven eastern beauty/wellness traditions that could really benefit all of us in the frantic pace of modern living, but often they are too complex or too difficult to access. So we set out on a mission to offer these traditional eastern wellness practices like our flower infusions in a simple and joyful way so you can easily access them and reap the health benefits.
We believe beauty and wellness as two sides of the same coin, healthy is beautiful. How healthy you look on the outside naturally is a reflection of how healthy you are on the inside. We also believe deeply that the best way to true wellness is through holistic healthy living that will promote the quality of life for the long term. This eastern healing system operates from a point of a view that you are whole and everything about you is connected, that you are much more than the sum of your body parts. It’s about a proactive approach to wellness where consistently taking best care of oneself is the best cure.
We launched with flowers because certain flowers have long been used in history for its holistic healing properties from the inside out due to their beauty and potency (packed with powerful antioxidants). They are also believed to have the most Qi because plants flower in the spring after a long winter of absorbing the earth's minerals, nutrients, energy, and much more. It is believed this is a plant's peak and to drink in all that Qi from the flowers infusions you also benefit from tremendous Qi (life energy or life force).
Our flowers are large, whole blooms directly from the farms that have been cultivating edible flowers for generations. Every spring, the flowers (Rose, Lotus, and Chrysanthemums) are carefully hand-picked by expert growers before sunrise. Then they are painstakingly hand-selected for wholeness and laid out for individual drying. Once dried, each flower is individually sealed for long-lasting freshness and ease of use and delivered to you. All of our products go through 3rd party lab testing here in the US to verify their purity and potency and to ensure we are delivering the best to you. Always.
My name is Lisa and I was born and raised in a small coastal city in China. As a child, I spent a lot of time with my grandma who made me the most nourishing herbal tonics on a regular basis. Just like brunch... herbalism and holistic wellness was simply a way of life.
I moved to the US at the age of 14 and I experienced the total opposite approach to wellness (or lack thereof at the time). On a mission to return to a time where nourishing oneself was simple and joyful, I set out to make a change so everyone can access and benefit from these healing products and rituals.
After over a year of really hard work, The Qi was born. We are so excited to share with you these beautiful and powerful flowers for when you need a moment in a busy day to stop and rejuvenate, to restore and rebalance. A moment to breathe deeply while enjoying the delightful sensory experience for a healing and nourishing time. Enjoy it as the perfect healing daily ritual for yourself or share it with friends. We hope you find it as delightful as we do!
