Elevate Your Everyday with Lake and Skye
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always felt magnetized to the time 11:11. Whether it’s the time, elevator floors, the moment in a song — I’m drawn to the number 11:11. AM or PM, my eyes always seem to catch the clock at that hour, often following or preceding a moment of particular serendipity or meaning. Perhaps we see what we want to see, but even so, the endowment of these numbers in my life has come to highlight extraordinary moments that I might have otherwise missed or simply not appreciated as deeply.
So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered Lake and Skye’s 11:11 collection. Self-described as “a simple yet bold blend inspired by the teachings of Kundalini yoga and the color white. It is a sheer, clean, and uplifting fragrance with an ethereal vibe. The scent captures the feel of skin after emerging from the ocean, mixed with a crisp texture and transparency.” I mean, come on!
The numerology behind 11:11 has to do with the repeating numbers. The 1, in particular, signifies beginnings, so the quadruple sequence is believed to nourish a higher level of manifestation. Endowing a moment, relationship, or place with “beginning” energy can be a deeply powerful practice. This is why we chose Lake and Skye’s 11:11 candle as the very first member of Interior Monologue’s shoppable collection. A new beginning from us to you!
Lake & Skye began when founder Courtney Somer had her first daughter and learned to use the power of essential oils for healing. Always drawn to the power of aromatherapy, she leaned into this creative outlet that complimented her newfound role of motherhood. After experiencing a health crisis in her twenties, Courtney became passionate about alternative healing and wellness. She has studied aromatherapy, reiki, nutrition, and meditation.
Thus, Lake and Skye was born, modern and conscious beauty, rooted in simplicity. “Inspired by contemporary women, and rooted in wellness, Lake & Skye is designed to enhance and elevate her every day.” I myself have found peace in transcendental meditation so I understand the huge difference it can make in your life when you begin a conscious focus on putting time aside for yourself to calm a busy mind.
The body oil utilizes natural remedies to nourish and soothe the body and what makes this oil extra yummy is that it is rich in essential fatty acids and anti-inflammatory Vitamin E. The formula is cruelty-free and free of parabens and sulfates and it utilizes almond oil to restore the skin’s protective barriers. The candle is tailored to enrich your home environment with 100% soy wax, the sublime scent, and it’s chic packaging. The 11:11 candles make a great addition to your space.
Courtney envisioned the blends as gifts to give yourself to use throughout the day — a novel idea in today’s productivity-paced culture. I’ve added in the body oil to my daily routine and cherish the few moments in the morning I get to relax and truly pamper myself. I’ve also started lighting my 11:11 candle to cradle the sacred moments of the day to day life — something we could all use a little more of.
