There is a reason we enjoy sitting in the heat, cooling off in a lake and taking it easy. Cycles of time spent in heat and cold are very therapeutic for our body. Let’s break down the benefits of each in contrast bathing.
Plants and their essences have been used by humans for millennia, making aromatherapy one of the oldest wellness modalities. Ancient Egyptians were some of the first documented people to build a distillery to make their oils for embalming their dead.

Body wraps are a relaxing way to treat your skin to a full body mask. They target different conditions like dry & dehydrated skin, water retention, and skin elasticity to name a few. Body Wraps are also wonderfully relaxing as you are cocooned in blankets, keeping you warm, while your skin absorbs the mask. Offering a detoxifying effect, they can also get you sweating while you are wrapped.
Dry brushing is a great way to gently exfoliate your skin and stimulate your lymphatic system. As we explained last week, our body’s lymphatic system filters our extracellular fluid, plays a role in immunity and keeps us from swelling by returning fluid to the bloodstream. When it is not functioning properly, it can result in lymphedema, disease and lethargy.
