Well the last couple of days have been a bit hectic and I was not feeling my usual happy go lucky self. So I went to my supply of essential oils and decided to create an aromatherapy blend for myself. I have to say that before I even completed the blend and put it in its cute little blue bottle I was feeling much better. This beautiful aromatic blend of floral, citrus and herbs is simply delightful! Another great idea to use this blend is to melt a bit of shea butter with some cocoa butter and melt a piece of plain very dark chocolate add essential oil blend and then put blend in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. This makes a yummy antioxidant rich summer body butter.

Here is the blend I created:

Rose Geranium
Pink Grapefruit
Rose absolute
French Lavender
Sweet Orange or Lemon (optional)

This is an amazing feminine blend that seems to effect the whole body and stimulate my brain activity at the same time. I only made a very small batch for myself but if you would like to special order for yourself or as a wonderful gift for Mother's Day please let me know.
The cost for a 15ml bottle is $20. I use only the finest essential oils, mostly organic.

Hello all,
Yes, it has been a very long time since I started this post and so much has happened since then. The biggest event is our move to a new location just down the street. The space is beautiful and elegant and we have added 2 treatment rooms one for massage therapy and the other is for our spa body care treatments in addition to our retail boutique.

Our new location is 245 Balsam Street, Ridgecrest, CA 93555. Telephone 760-382-0829.
I have new staff and new organic skin and body care products. We have also expanded on our
bamboo sheets and towels. I am also hoping to expand our Aromatherapy products and organic fresh cut herbs.

I plan to post daily recipes for beauty, health and nutrition and hope that you will post your opinions and questions and any recipes you thing might be beneficial to others.
