We tried Hasu micro meditation 3-D printed flowers
Are you interested in mindfulness but feel like you don’t have time to stop and smell the flowers?
Hi, I’m Ben with the Omtimes Shopping Network, and in this video, we’re going to talk about an option for you called Hasu.
What is Hasu
Hasu is a 3D-printed micro meditation tablet. The concept behind us is that you can take a tablet at any time during the day when you have a couple of minutes and use the tablet to re-center yourself, focus on your senses and bring a little bit of mindfulness into your day.
Whether you use it as a gateway drug for harder mindfulness practices or just a way to catch your breath during a busy day is up to you. No matter how busy your day is, we can all take a minute or two to appreciate the look, smell, and taste of these little flower tablets.
Hasu is Japanese for Lotus. The Lotus is a central metaphor for the journey to Enlightenment and the way that a Lotus begins at the bottom of a muddy pond and slowly rises to break the surface of the water, emerging and fully blooming in the light. A mint you can use on your commute or any two minutes of the day may not be enough to fully break off the shackles of the at-work-a-day world, but it’s a decent place to start.
Hasu comes in three flowers: vanilla, mint, and ginger. They’re all 3D printed to resemble what else but little lotus flowers. The flowers are printed out of water, sugar, and vegetable starch which means that Hasu is vegan. However, it’s worth keeping in mind that the Hasu flowers are produced in a factory that also handles tree nuts. You can get a three-flavor three-pack for $4.50s, you can purchase 20 tablets of individual flavors for $14.50, or you can purchase 60 tablets of one of each flavor for $40.50.
Even though the flowers are very tiny and delicate looking they did ship well, and they all came completely intact. In terms of taste, they’re all flavorful, and they all do smell great, so you probably get the benefit of a little breath refresh when you use them as well.
My personal favorite was the vanilla flavor. They suggest that you take a minute after opening the package to smell the flower, and then you place it in your mouth and you allow it to dissolve, which takes about another minute, so it’s a very quick process. The website does feature a lot of resources on how to use the tablets and the purposes behind the tablets so that you’re not just popping them like candy.
As far as I could find, there are no third-party certifications, nor are there any claims about, you know, sustainable or responsibly sourced ingredients. And to be fair, I don’t know anything about the supply chain for 3D-printed food ingredients, but I do think that in the spirit of mindfulness, knowing that the ingredients are responsibly and consciously sourced would be an added benefit.
Who is this for?
I think that this product is good for anybody who wants to dabble with a little bit of mindfulness practice, especially if you’re a tactile person.
This is a good way to try mindfulness while still having a very pretty object to consider. I’m a meditation practitioner, and I still enjoyed having a Hasu micro meditation.
Overall I just think that it’s a very accessible way to introduce yourself to some mindfulness practices. It’s definitely not as intimidating or demanding as trying to sit in front of a wall and stare at it for 30 minutes.
So if you’re thinking of exploring mindfulness practices I think that starting with something that reminds you to focus on your senses and gives you and your senses something interesting to consider is a great way to start.
