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
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
