Little Boutique Retreat

It may be small and bijoux, but my cosy little therapy room, tucked away in the eaves of Ash Cottage delivers wellbeing in abundance for those looking to retreat away for an hour or two and experience healing, soul soothing treatments.

During my treatments I teach my clients how to breathe deeply into the abdomen, this technique has been proven to quieten the mind, detox the cells and release tension throughout the whole of the body.   I also use sound healing through each session; sound waves are the medicine of the future, with oscillating vibrations running through each organ, tissue and cell.  The power of touch enhanced by using a beautiful edit of curated, holistic skincare, full of wild crafted essential oils, probiotics and crystals takes my bespoke facials and body therapy to a higher state of wellness…

It’s finally here! Summer Facial Oil – Time To Flourish…

When the postman arrived this morning with a package under his arm, I felt a wave of excitement as I knew something very special was inside.. my latest delivery of de Mamiel Summer Facial Oil has landed!

Part of the set of Seasonal Facial Oils created by Annee de Mamiel, these beautifully crafted limited edition oils, are made four times a year to address the changing effect of the climate, the emotional aspects of transition and their impact on the body.  Full of carefully selected, precious, fragrant essences and skin plumping plant ingredients from the purest natural organic sources, the blends nourish skin, mind and soul to achieve balance and harmony.  The qualities of this oil are refreshing, uplifting and awakening and inline with the seasonal shift, I will incorporate using this oil within my bespoke face therapies from the Midsummer solstice and beyond..  It’s the blend of age-defying antioxidant-rich aromatic oils and flower essences that gives the complexion a rush of vitality and radiance. It warms skin and soul to keep you blossoming all summer long…

Please use the contact page for treatment availability, there is currently a 4 week waiting list for bookings.

 “Summer is a time for joy and celebration, it’s when we are at our most yang – the fire in our souls is ignited which gives us energy.  This up-lifting blend nourishes and protects our skin, balance our emotions and help sustain that sunny spirit so we can enjoy long days and restful holidays.”

Brightening Cleanse & Exfoliate

Cleanse-and-exfoliate_1250x2048_2048x2048

When I first used this product I was unsure about it, it seemed messier than one of my 4 year old’s mud kitchen sessions, and that’s saying something… But, I perservered, used less water, applied onto wet palms and spent time working the precious powder into a soft mousse-like paste.  Now after using it in my Wellbeing Face Treatment and seeing the results it brings, I’m a convert…

This is an ultimate skin fixer, a superfood powder for the face containing healing clays, plant and gem extracts to smooth and polish skin to reveal its natural radiance and glow. The wonderfully delicate rose aroma encourages deep breaths and relaxation.  I love the fact that it can be used to cleanse and doubles up as an exfoliant mask that can be left on for a little longer to boost effectiveness.

This week in my treatment retreat, I have had a ‘Facial Focus’ and all of my clients have left with a glow and radiance that this potent multi-tasker creates.

To book in and experience one of my bespoke facials, please do get in touch for treatment availability.

Best, Julie x

 

Restorative Cleansing Balm – de Mamiel

dem011_demamiel_restorativecleansingbalm_1_1560x1960-nkq20

I love the ritual of cleansing my face, taking off the day’s grit and grime, ridding the skin of toxins and pollutants with each buff, so to me, a good cleanser is one of the most important factors in preventing premature ageing.

de Mamiel’s Restorative Cleansing Balm harnesses the spirit-lifting properties of pure flower essences – honey myrtle, fragonia, chamomile and rose geranium – alongside blemish battling probiotics, to restore the complexion to its clear, supple and luminous best. Anti-bacterial manuka helps to reduce the probability of breakouts, while nourishing kukui, calendula and moringa oils combine to replenish precious moisture and enhance skin’s strength, elasticity and resilience.

An effortless way to dissolve every last trace of make up, this soul and skin-soothing balm melts residual oil and purges your pores of impurities, so skin is left ‘squeakily’ clean with a plump, dewy and comforted feel.  It comes in two sizes, a 50ml and 100ml with the latter lasting a good 6/8 weeks due to only a nugget of this dreamy product being required for each cleanse..

Massage a small amount between your palms and onto your face and neck in upward circular motions. Soak a cloth in warm water and hold it against your face for a minute, to steam and activate the oils – breathe deep, then buff away….pure bliss.
