Give the gift of self-care with healing products from my Bodacious Boutique!

I have always emphasized locally-made and organically-minded skin and body care products for exceptional self-care at home and at my spa. Powerful herbs and potent essential oils not only give my products enticing scents, they offer incredible benefits to our bodies and well-being.

Here are a few of my favourites for gift-giving, and inviting relaxation and self-love into your home:

Lavender: Let this calming floral scent whisk you away into a field of deep relaxation. Let any feelings of holiday exhaustion melt away as you renew your sense of well-being with lavender essential oil scented products. Reach for Lavender Honey to naturally sweeten your tea, or bring instant relaxation to your space with Lavender Mist.

Echinacea: Boost your immune system and decrease painful inflammation with this keystone healing flower. Wonderful for soothing skin conditions too! Try the Echinacea Lip Balm to soothe chapped lips and dry cuticles. Drink Echinacea Tea to ward off colds and stay healthy during the cold months.

Rose: Enjoy the uplifting effect that rose shares with us. Rose is a natural mood booster that can help ease our low feelings during the short days. Immerse yourself in lavender, rosemary and rose petals from the Goddess Garden in a nourishing bath soak.

Lemongrass: Reduce muscle aches and pains with lemongrass, which also stimulates the senses. On a cool winter’s day, its scent is uplifting, refreshing, and warming. When consumed, lemongrass is a tremendous aid in improving digestion. My Lemongrass Scrub is an easy way to enjoy this scent!

Peppermint: Reach for this natural energy booster when the holiday pace has you running full-tilt. Feeling a bit run off your feet? Reach for a Peppermint Foot Scrub. Refreshing and an instant boost!

Want to know more? I’m here to answer your questions and as always, I’m can help you find the best products or services for you, your friends, and loved ones.

Wishing you a joyous spring & summer!

After an intense winter, spring may finally be in the air! Our bodies need our love and support now more than ever. Here are my favourite products for self-care during March and April – all are available at my Bodacious Boutique and nearly all products are made in BC!

Tuscan Farm Gardens Echinacea Tea, Lip Balm & Soap
Boost your immune system and decrease painful inflammation with this keystone healing flower. Echinacea Tea wards off colds, activates your body’s cleansing pathways, and helps you regulate stress. The Echinacea Lip Balm is a mini first aid kit for your purse and a must when you travel. Not only does it heal dry lips, you can use it on dry skin patches, to repair cuticles, to treat bug bites, to soothe minor burns, and even as an eyebrow wax. It’s self-care in a tiny package!

Tuscan Farm Gardens Lemongrass Scrub
Exfoliate, cleanse and moisturize in one step! Reduce muscle aches and pains with lemongrass, which also stimulates the senses. Its scent is uplifting, refreshing, and warming!

Tuscan Farm Gardens Tuscan Sunshine Oil
Use after skin brushing or exfoliating for an uplifting and purifying experience. This oil increases circulation too.

Japanese Mint Oil
When used topically, Japanese Mint Oil has a stimulating effect that can improve circulation, relieve pain, help sprains, reduce muscle inflammation, and even ease cramps. It is known for being particularly great for the back because it soothes tension and reduces inflammation. Rub on your temples for headache relief. For instant relief from allergies and congestion, add a few drops of Japanese Mint Oil to a bowl of hot water, then use a towel to cover your head and the bowl to breathe in relief.

Fredrich’s Honey Propolis Tincture 25% 
Use this tincture as a preventative health measure. Take it daily to support your immune system and tame inflammation. At the first sign of a sore throat, take a dose to ward off illness. Normal dose is 2-3 drops under your tongue once a day. You can add it to your tea or in a smoothie alternatively. Known to help arthritis symptoms as well.

Natural Beeswax Tealights
Invite the nurturing and nourishing smell of honey into your space with these high-quality candles. Burning beeswax even cleanses the air naturally!

Neti Pot
If you have seasonal allergies then you need the Neti Pot in your life! This simple device clears out your sinuses and flushes out toxins. Details on how to use it available at my Boutique.

Body Brushes/Dry Brushes
Use every day to stimulate your lymphatic system and flush out metabolic waste. You can use them wet or dry (but if you use them wet, you’ll have to replace them more regularly). To wake up your system in the morning, use the Lemongrass Soap and Scrub in the shower with a body brush, then dry off and use the Tuscan Sunshine Oil. Guaranteed to make you feel alive!

Bamboo Charcoal Brush
Similar to the dry brush, this brush features super soft bamboo charcoal bristles that are naturally antibacterial and work especially well for drawing out impurities.

Preventative Health Gift Box
I have designed this box to include what you need to stay healthy at a time of year when colds, the flu and stress can take their toll. Included are Echinacea Tea, Olive Oil Soap and Lip Balm; Lavender Honey; Local Propolis Tincture; Natural Beeswax Tealight, Peppermint Foot Scrub, Bath Soak; and Organic Fair Trade Chocolate. All beautifully packaged in a bodacious box with peacock ribbon and a personalized note!

Package of the season

The gift of self-care

I highly recommend trying the Indian Head Massage after a stressful day or week. I arrived after a stressful day my mind was full of busyness and I felt exhausted, after my Indian Head massage treatment I felt relaxed and revitalized, my mind also felt calm, clear and peaceful, it was like my stress just melted away, I will definitely be back for this treatment.

After many treatments and time with Lisa over the past 25 years, I have come to appreciate her spirit, her warmth, and to trust her and her spa as a safe and inspiring center. Recently Lisa helped me see that a facial was nourishment for the skin and also a relaxing massage treatment for healthy radiant glowing skin.

Margaret Litch

I have been a client of Lisa’s since I was 12 years old. I feel very comfortable at her spa and trust her with my skincare spa services. Being a University student and on a budget I tend to use drug store products on my skin. I decided to invest in Goddess Bliss skincare; it’s been 3 months now. I have noticed many changes and benefits such as my skin feels more balanced, healthy, my dryness has diminished, my skin’s tone is more even I wear less make-up because my skin feels radiant. I now see the value of investing in quality skin care; I am committed to my new regime and love it.  Thank you Lisa for your expertise and creating such an awesome skincare line!

Katie Davidson

Coming to Lisa for the past 8 years is an important part of my self-care, I look forward to seeing Lisa monthly as her waxing is the most gentle I have experienced. This is more than getting a service it’s become a friendship, someone I trust to share on a personal level.  Her passion for personal growth has also inspired me to be part of her Sacred Circles for women.  I’ve enjoyed this aspect of self-discovery and taking it to a deeper level in a safe setting with other likeminded women. I love taking time to awaken and acknowledge my inner Goddess strengths.

Hannah Ruller

Being in my 50’s I noticed my skin starting to sag so it was now or never to get on this. I contacted Lisa ready to take better care of my skin and also make time for just me to receive some nurturing. Within a week after having my facial treatment and using Goddess Bliss skincare, I noticed big changes. It has been almost a year now, my skin lines have softened my tonicity has improved, my skin feels radiant and alive. Regular monthly massage and facial treatments are a big part of my self-care now, I feel fantastic, I am worth it!  Thank you Lisa!

Shari Molchan

I love Lisa's monthly circle so much that it has become an essential part of my life - it is a ritual of sensual experience that encompasses aroma, words, song, meditation, movement, and self-expression. Lisa creates an atmosphere of magical beauty and peace that permeates her home; walking into her space is like stepping into a different dimension that we long for in our everyday lives. The sharing and connectedness amongst the group grows deeper with each circle and I leave feeling renewed and refreshed with a sense of joy and peace that filters into all aspects of my being. It grounds me back to my self and the core of goddess magic that resides within all of us but is forgotten in the daily stresses of living. I'm so grateful that I have this unique and beautiful experience to look forward to every month!
