The hippie soul is free at heart, loves with wild abandon, and lives with passion. They don’t follow the rules and constraints of society and forge ahead making their own path. While every hippie soul has its own unique set of values and essentials, these five are a good place to start if you are new to the hippie lifestyle.
A Zen Sanctuary
Whether it’s for meditation, yoga, or just having a place to chill, every hippie needs a place designed to maximize their Zen. This spot could be anything from a dedicated room in your home, a cozy corner of the living room, or spot outside on the patio or under a tree. It’s your sanctuary it should reflect what calls to your soul. The same goes for decor, there no right or wrong way to decorate your Zen zone. Your favorite blanket, pillows, blankets, and art. Maybe some soft lighting or candles, plants, or incense. The possibilities are endless, just listen to your heart.

Inspired by your sense of wanderlust, a mix of prints, patterns, art, and trinkets from around the world sourced from your frequent travels, favorite online boutique, or local thrift store are a must in any hippie home. Bold colors and design are hallmarks of the look, and minimalism design is definitely not an option here.

Used in a variety of applications from beauty, to household cleaning, to alternative medicine, essential oils are a must for hippie souls looking for natural ways to reduce chemicals in the home. Tea Tree, Lemon, Eucalyptus, and Orange oil are all favorites for homemade cleaning products. While ginger, peppermint, and lemongrass oils are used in many home remedies for minor ailments.

The hippie soul will not survive with out nature for long. From the beaches, to the mountains, to the desert oasis, and everything in between, time spent outdoors enjoying nature is what makes the hippie heart tick. That’s why you’ll often find yourself planning camping trips, organizing weekend hikes with your friends, or simply spending as much time as possible in your own backyard. A daily dose of nature is a must for the hippie soul to stimulate the heart, soul, and mind.
