Last year I bought my husband a variety of small herb plants and an ivy and placed them in plant pots.  He works on the computer hours at a time. He also likes to cook when he is in the mood. So, my ploy to get him in the kitchen worked for me all year.He not only made us some spa water with fresh rosemary and lemons. He also uses the basil with Italian dishes and pretends be talian. The plants have grown into these eco healthy plants that purify the air from bad things that get in our home and keeps him healthy from all that computer blue light and what rays our tech tools give off.

Bonus they are so beautiful to look at and aromatic too.

So, I highly recommmend if you have’t purchashed a gift for him yet…

Give him a few plants in a beautiful basket,wrap in a cookbook and a small kitchen utensil and spoon or whisk…

SPAaaaaaaaaaaah and Rituals!

I told you I would post about my spa visit in Santa Fe New Mexico. And here it is.

I fell in love with the resort and caring staff at the La Posada De Santa Fe hotel and then I discovered the SPA! The Spa Sage in Santa Fe is a sweet relaxing retreat. Tucked in between our quaint and unique  rooms.

The spa was filled with a wonderful mix of products. Not always do you see that. From beauty to fashion accessories and fragrance.

One thing that caught my undivided attention was a sign holder with the words below and square white patches of cloth and a paper twist tie. Next to it were pieces of this silver gray sage. Here is what it read:

Sage is held sacred by many Native Americans because of its purifying energies.Traditionally cleanses both the body and the mind. Traditionally it is used in areas in smudging ceremony to clear the energy and purify the body.

Upon arrival at SPA SAGE,please make a bundle of sage while thinking of a concern you would like to release as well as good thoughts you would like to bring in.

This practice will prepare you for complete relaxation during your spa experience. At the end of your spa journey you may leave your worries with us to burn at night in the fireplace or take the bundle home with you to burn or keep for a memory of your experience with Spa Sage.

I never experienced a spa quite like this and this extra special touch!!!

I took my bundle of sage that I put together at the spa so I could photograph it and show you! Tonight I AM following the spas instructions and burning it with intentions.

I also love the fact that if you stay at the lodge you can get a eucalyptus & lavender aromatherapy steam room treatment. Can you smell it?

HEAVENLY! And just what my body needed as I arrived with a respiratory infection. The spa also offers fabulous facials,massage,mani & pedi’s and more!

Come to find out a fan of the hotel staying there told me that Hollywood called and they just shot a movie at this hotel with Benjamin Bratt and a few other celebrities.

If you are ever out that way…you need to see this resort and SPA!
