Clients stumble out of my massage studio, drunk on the feel good hormone oxytocin,often remarking they are ready for a nap.
The other day , yet another client commented on how well they slept after their massage session the week before.
Later that day, my monthly doTerra order arrived , containing doTerras Serenity Essential Oil Blend and new soft gel capsules to support healthy sleep.
Standing there inhaling the complex and calming blend of Serenity I was suddenly hit with inspiration!
No time to fully explore the idea, since my next client was pulling up , I jotted down the basic idea and moved along with my busy day.
Early Saturday morning, awake before the sun, I headed to the cottage for time to process this idea and I enjoyed the warmth of the sauna on this chilly December morning.
Taking time to explore this essential oil blend on a deeper level, the frame work for a simple, relaxing, affordable retreat quickly came together.
Soooooooo…..let me introduce
Your evening retreat begins with checking into the Cottages deluxe guest suite.
Comfortably settled in , enter the softly lit massage studio for a gentle dry brushing to exfoliate dead dry skin, stimulate the lymphatic system and prepare for your sauna session.
With a tall , cool glass of spa water in hand, settle into the sauna to warm and relax your muscles and encourage natural detoxification.
Calming music and the synergised essential blend of Serenity (Lavender Flower, Cedarwood, Ho Wood Leaf, Ylang Ylang Flower, Marjoram Leaf, Roman Chamomile Flower, Vetiver Root, Vanilla Bean Absolute, Hawaiian Sandalwood Wood ) surrounds you as you decompress in the dry warmth of the infrared sauna.
Take your journal or just flow with the music.
Sorry, no phones allowed in the massage studio.
In fact, I recommend you just turn off your phone when you check in and leave it off for the night!
This is time to reconnect with yourself.
To clear the static and noise.
After the sauna , relax on the massage table for a 90 min massage with high quality, organic massage oils to nourish the skin and ease discomfort in the body.
The massage concludes with a mineral rich salt back scrub and warm towels that will send you into a state of relaxed bliss.
Fully relaxed, cup of hot tea in hand, it’s just a few steps into the guest suite to melt into the comfortable bed.
Sounds lovely, right?
To schedule your mini Retreat , please reserve the Wellness Cottage on airbnb . In your reservation request, let me know you would like the Serenity Retreat added to your reservation.
I look forward to welcoming you to the Cottage and assisting you in a good nights sleep.
