On Bathing Rituals

Take the plunge.  Cleanse, purify, rejuvenate.  Nourish your mind, body and spirit.

Bathing is an easy way to gift yourself a blissful Time Out.  Salt baths (Epsom and Sea Salts are among our favorites) infuse the body with Magnesium and other vital minerals which help to soothe sore muscles, encourage better sleep and detoxify the body. We’re big fans of The Ritual Store’s Rose Quartz bath gems and Divine Detox Bath soak.  Each jar is infused with powerful crystal energy to elevate your bathing experience.

Burn Palo Santo and let the smoke clear the air and bless your body.  Set the intention of opening your heart and gifting yourself much needed rejuvenation time as you swirl the bath gems into warm water.  Dress the bath with fresh rose blooms and rose essential oil to charge the water with the loving energy of roses.  Step inside and soak in the nourishment of this restoring time to yourself.

On Kindness and Compassion

We have collaborated with Energy Rebalancer Amélie St. Pierre of Liberate your True Self in the curation of our Ritual Pedicure foot baths.  Her innate connection to crystals and gift to empower and rebalance our energy fields helped us in creating baths that truly enrich the experience of this soulful treatment.

For the month of December our Ritual Pedicure will focus on Kindness and Compassion.

Pink Peruvian opal is the stone of gentle love and kindness which is the greatest gift that can be offered.  It helps us open our hearts so that we may give and receive love without expecting anything in return.

Essential oil of Ylang ylang is a loving, sensual oil which boosts the heart chakra by balancing love of self and others.  It can ease heartache and release negative emotions such as anger, possessiveness and low self esteem.  It nourishes confidence, self love and spiritual awareness while minimizing tension and stress.

Pink Himalayan bath salts encourage profound relaxation, help reduce tension and stress and recharge our bodies with its mineral rich content.

Call us or book online at https://www.vagaro.com/wildflowerbeautybar and gift yourself with gentle loving kindness.

On Ritual Pedicures

 

 

 

We so often hear “treat yourself” or “indulge” and while there are an infinite number of ways to do this there are fewer ways to make that treat or indulgence an ongoing gift to yourself. We created the Ritual pedicure in collaboration with Spiritual Healer Amélie St. Pierre, of Liberate Your True Self, to inspire self care habits that inspirit, rejuvenate and help relieve daily stresses. Our Ritual Pedicures feature flower filled, crystal charged foot soaks you can recreate at home as your own foot soak or as a bath. In spa the treatment will include extended soak time and extended neck and shoulder massage time using featured essential oils.

1.25hrs, $85

Every other month we will share a new Ritual Pedicure treatment, each with its own unique theme and purpose.

In the spirit of the season, the October/November Ritual Pedicure is “In Gratitude”. Take time to note what you are grateful for and bring the spirit of gratitude into your daily life.

October’s Ritual Pedicure ingredients:

Citrine – A heartwarming and bright stone with a bright energy. Citrine is a stone of abundance and positivity. It will cleanse you of negative energy, reenergize your self esteem and aid in future manifestation.

Rose petals – The message of the rose is to nuture yourself. Take time to reflect on what you are grateful for.

Pink Himalayan Sea Salt – Created over millennia Himalayan sea salt has been nurtured by earth’s energy and pressure over time. It is said to offer detoxifying properties, can help remineralize the body and is antibacterial.

Rose Absolute essential oil- calming and relaxing. Induces stress relief.

On why to choose non toxic nail polish

 

Why should you choose non toxic nail polish? Why not is really the question.  Traditional nail polish is filled with chemicals that have been shown to be hazardous to your health because of  links to things from skin irritation to cancers.  At minimum these harmful chemicals can cause dryness and weakening of the nails.  These aren’t compromises you should have to make when healthy, beautiful nails are what you’re after.

The top three offenders, known as the “toxic trio” are Formaldehyde, Toluene and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP).  Formaldehyde, traditionally used to embalm dead bodies is a known carcinogen.  Toluene, a petroleum/coal tar derived chemical is known to be harmful to the nervous system, has been linked to impaired human reproduction, impaired breathing and nausea.  DBP has been shown to affect the reproductive system and has been linked to cancer and birth defects. And though a layer or two of polish may not necessarily cause these reactions it is the constant exposure and absorption over years of use that is the concern.  The good news is that the “toxic trio” are being removed from many polish brands..so hoorah! But buyer beware: they still exist in a lot of nail polishes so read the ingredient list.

To go a step further some nail polish brands have removed formaldehyde resin- a less toxic derivative of formaldehyde, Camphor – a known neurotoxin,  Triphenyl Phosphate (TPHP) – which research suggests can affect hormones, reproduction, metabolism and development, Ethyl Tosylamid – which has raised concern over antibiotic resistance, and Xylene – a known allergen and possible carcinogen.

So progress is being made!  Let’s support the thoughtful and innovative brands who make amazing products which allow us to experience beauty and healthy choices simultaneoulsy.  Beauty without compromise.

Our favourite polishes come from tenoverten (8 free) and Deborah Lippmann (7 free).  These vegan and cruelty free polishes paint like a dream, are as durable as any other polish we’ve tried and come in so many beautiful colours you won’t even know what you’re missing.
