OUR PRODUCTS AND THEIR BENEFITS:

 

All of our products are hand-made in our spa using certified organic ingredients,

and those that are harvested are done so in the local area using sustainable

harvesting practices with respect and honor of the land and acknowledgement of its

indigenous peoples.

 

Our Clay

The detoxification effects from the use of clay is well known in the spa industry

and is used by indigenous cultures around the world. When applied to the skin it

constricts the pores and forces toxins to "sweat" to the surface as soon as the

clay dries. When applied to the bottoms of the feet clay has a particularly fast

acting detox effect since it has been discovered that feet tend to eliminate toxins

more completely and quickly than other skin surfaces of the body. The clay used in

our treatments is naturally occurring and harvested in the Kootenays right from the

shores of Kootenay Lake.

 

Our Medicinal Plants

Our medicinal plant wraps are applications of hot plush linens steeped in

combinations of wild medicinal plants sustainably harvested from the local area.

The plant medicines are fast-acting and absorb into muscles and tissue to help

relieve sore muscles and inflammation which can encourage your body to relax more

fully during massage. The plants are harvested sustainably from the local wild

areas with respect to maintaining healthy stands and letting stands rest for

several seasons in between harvests. We acknowledge the original indigenous people

of the lands from which we harvest and pay respect to the life force and healing

powers of the plants that are harvested. The plants used in our medicinal plant

wraps will vary depending on the season and availability.

 

 

Our Sea Salt

The benefits of exfoliating the skin with sea salt are much greater than just skin

deep. There is a detoxing effect from the topical use of sea salt as well as its

ability to leave your skin feeling fresh and smooth. Our sea salt comes from a

variety of sources.

 

Our Coffee Scrub/Cocoa Activator /and Body Butter Toner used in our Antioxidant

Skin Toning Wrap

The use of coffee and cocoa in the spa industry has become popular for its

properties attributed to being able to encourage the break up of cellulite. They

are antioxidants and rich in caffeine which stimulate blood flow with the goal of

activating the subcutaneous fat cells. By adding a heat source and restricting air

to the skin's pores along with the caffeinated boost of increased blood flow, the

idea is to promote perspiration and water loss, thus increasing the effect of

redistributing or smoothing out the appearance of cellulite.

The Coffee Scrub is a mixture of coffee and sea salt ground to an optimal texture

and added to coconut oil for the perfect spread. Our Cocoa Activator is a smooth

mixture of olive oil, cocoa and a few secret spices to round out that delicious

flavor - i mean aroma - so you smell like a cookie all day!

Our specially formulated Body Butter Toner is applied as a moisturizer and

stimulator to keep the blood flow circulating all day. It is a blend of caffeine

rich green tea, locally harvested horse chestnut for blood circulation and locally

harvested comfrey which is known to enhance cell therapy. The plants are infused

into coconut oil and whipped to a silky smooth finish which spreads evenly and

penetrates deeply into the skin.

 

Our Scalp Elixer

We use a blend of essential oils that help rejuvenate the scalp and fight against

bacteria and fungus that cause scalp disorders. We have chosen to use Tea Tree for

its antibacterial properties, Peppermint, which has been used historically in hair

tonics to stimulate hair growth and healthy hair follicles, and Eucalyptus as an

anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and for its additional qualities of being able to

open up the sinuses which is helpful after a long massage face down in the face

rest, and of course to help create that overall tingling effect of our scalp

elixir.
