This January, we are Giving The Process: For each of the first 30 days of the month, we’re highlighting something—and someone—amazing in the wellness world, representing the beauty, health, style, creative, energetic and/or spiritual boost you need to make yourself a priority in the new year—and decade. On January 31, one charmed follower will win one of every item and ritual we highlight, including a $1,000 gift card for Live The Process!
They say it takes 30 days to create a habit—sign ups for our newsletter, follow us on IG and tell us how you’re hoping to make taking care of your physical, emotional, intellectual and/or spiritual self a priority this year—to make 2020 about self-care without guilt.
Today’s gift are Transcendent Elixirs by Sun Potion.
My name is: Scott Linde.
I’m known for being: The steward, founder, owner of Sun Potion.
I’m sharing: Two of our new Transcendent Elixirs: Mucuna Pruriens (for mood elevation) and Bacopa (for mental function). Sun Potion offers the best-quality tonic herbs, adaptogens and teas—“Transformational Foods for a Transformational Life.”
You can find them at: sunpotion.com; 1900 of your favorite, local, brick-and-mortar purveyors of healthful foods, plant-based cosmetics and lifestyle wares; a select handful of international locations—including Le Bon Marche, Paris’ most formidable luxury goods establishment.
What inspired me to develop them was: Service. While cultivating for the creation of Sun Potion, my mantra was, “Show me my divine path of service.” I wanted to be as helpful as possible. My learning about tonic herbs happened through circuitous routes and was driven by curiosity. When I started taking “a potion a day,” I had profound experiences of intuition, discernment, inhabiting my body in new ways and basically feeling amazing most of the time. Sun Potion is, and was, a result of a soul-need to be of service, expressed through a love of plants and nature. Oh, and having fun. And feeling really good!
What makes it special is: Sun Potion is the best. I love it. From the glassware or color palettes used to package the materials, to the number codexes and coding on the branding—all of it is done to give deference and honor to the beautiful, helpful and powerful plant materials inside. These best-quality ingredients represent a balanced apothecary of proactive health supports. I am so excited about every one of the 48 products we currently offer. The selection is a highly curated trove of my personal favorites; I am thrilled Sun Potion is out in the world.
One thing you can’t miss is: Hidden meanings, in plain sight: Sun Potion’s brand icon, the Winged Sun Disc, is a universal, humanist symbol, which appears in timelines throughout our collective and known human histories here on planet Earth. This symbolism represents the alchemical practices of transmuting the physical body from dense to light, becoming like the sun and embodying one’s higher self. In my personal experience of spiritual and energetic practices, tonic herbs and adaptogens, as offered by Sun Potion, can be of enormous support to building the strength and suppleness of the body’s energetic pathways and circuitries. In a way, these herbs can help serve as an avenue to extend a handshake to higher parts of one’s self—like up-vibing our physical bodies, so our higher energetic potentials have more comfortable places to reside within us. For Sun Potion, this is the meaning or intention, hidden in plain sight.
Your body will thank you because: Sun Potion offers plant chemistries that deeply nourish and support our already existing chemical pathways in the body. Many of these plants offer chemical precursors (or bio-identicals) which the body can use to help carry out healthy functioning of its systems. They basically support the body to adapt to stressors of many different kinds through their chemistry. It’s plants. It’s nature. It's awesome. At Sun Potion, we want you to feel amazing.
This will help you prioritize your own health, joy and energy this year because: A potion a day. This is a great way to live throughout 2020. This is a year of clarity, balance, empowerment and helping others. These plants work through compliance or having them on a daily basis. Positive, positive, positive—a little every day.
My favorite personal short ritual for self-care in 2020 is: I have a five-vial case of Sun Potion's new Transcendent Elixirs. I carry them with me everywhere. At staff meetings, I pull them out and take a few squirts. If I bump into friends when I'm in town or at an event, I'll break them out and share them with everyone. I love them. They are my favorite new thing and represent a lot of loving work that went into their creation. Also, so potent. There’s a reason we called them the Transcendent Elixirs.
