A tiny yellow flower from Cypress can help you manifest your New Year intentions all your long. Meet Everlast.
Helichrysum or Everlast, is a tiny yellow straw flower from the Mediteranean. Known for giving off the appearance of being alive long after it is completely dried, it's been used as a precious oil for centuries to heal sunburns, scarring, and for it's anti-aging benefits. Believed to be the,"flower that never fades," Everlast had properties that would benefit those who were looking to become as ageless has it's vibrant sun colored flowers. It was the French who called the flower Immortelle, and ultimately capitalized on it's abilities to renew and regenerate. In fact, renewal and regeneration are exactly what we were after when we thought to add this amazing ingredient to a special, limited edition candle, just in time for the new year.
While we can appreciate the cosmetic uses of Everlast, what we're really interested in at Aloha Elixir are this magical little flower's spiritual uses, and ultimately why we added it to our new Fire Elixir, New Beginnings. Immortelle flower essence opens the doors of perception, allowing us to see ourselves and our lives in a new, fresh way, thus greatly enhancing creative flow. It can be used to strengthen the will, motivate and inspire. The unique properties of the flower can empower, release deep seated negativity, enhance creative expression, and provide freedom and opportunity for growth and change in perpetuity.
Let's face it, a lot of us will set intentions for the new year and tend to lose focus about three months in. By adding Everlast to New Beginnings, we can harness the power of this undying bloom to continue to help you manifest your wishes all year long! When you decide what your intention is for the year, make sure you're clear, concise, and above all positive. Once you light your way to your New Beginning, the energy from this flower will always ensure that what you ask for will multiply in your favor as time goes on so, make sure you're asking for something that you'll always want to see more of in your life!
We hope that this year will, be your best year yet. Happy 2016!
It's been a good Thyme together
Here at Aloha Elixir headquarters, we're always trying to convey just how passionate we are about holistic healing and spreading the Aloha. It was really Keoki's vision to not only provide people with a tool to help them focus their intention and create positive changes in their lives, but to educate and share knowledge about how to heal ourselves using our natural resources. These resources include harnessing our own energies, and learning to harness those provided to us from the Universe in the form of the elements. A long time botany enthusiast, Keoki thought it was important to help people understand just how influential the ingredients that go into Aloha Elixir are, and why he chose them. This started our recurring blog series: Aloha Elixir's Herb of the Month, sent once a month to our loyal subscribers(we love you!). As our first year winds down, and we find ourselves in a reflective mood, we thought we'd share some of our greatest hits from the Aloha Elixir HTM vault.
