calm the heart and quiet the spirit

Check out those shirts by The Lotus Root on Hyperion Tv!

We were thrilled and honored that Brandon (the owner/operator of Hyperion Herbs ) & his lovely girlfriend Brianna wore our shirts in the video for the launch of their newest product, Organic Schizandra Berry Extract. Schizandra is an amazing herb and is one of Vincent's favorites (we've always bought it in powdered form, so we're very intrigued by & excited to try the extract..)

You can learn more about Schizandras properties ( including better skin, a sharper mind, and a stronger immune system just to name a few..) here:

Vincent & I have been extremely happy with the products that we've tried from Hyperion Herbs..(the Duanwood Reishi that they sell is amazing) and we just received some Gynostemma tea yesterday which we absolutely LOVE.

I always enjoy the wealth of information that Brandon shares about herbs, health & wellness on his youtube channel and in his podcasts.

It's important to me to support small businesses who provide high quality products & do what they do with integrity, so I can't wait to order some of that schizandra extract!

"Who hasn’t experienced the unique feeling of holding a Polaroid in their hand and watching the image gradually reveal itself, or doesn’t remember the shiny photographic paper, the smell of the developing emulsion and the ninety seconds of anticipation waiting for the instant image to emerge? All photographs, but particularly Polaroids, reflect a desire to record that one special moment forever.
A few years ago a renaissance of the Polaroid photograph began and people began to take an interest in »retrography». This fascination stems from a deep yearning for old values, warmth and feel and the imperfect, real and familiar. It is no surprise that this longing for authenticity and permanence has emerged at a time of rapidly accelerating change, when digital images are practically ubiquitous.
Tradition is the foundation on which the POLABOY® is based, combined with cutting edge LED technology and consistent product design.
With the POLABOY® we capture personal moments which have irrevocably passed, thus immortalising the ethereal in timeless design. Snapshots become works of art to be rewarded with our deepest appreciation.
The frame for a small piece of eternity."
