What is your favorite part of being a mama?

Being able to witness every special moment of Capri’s growth and the unconditional love that flows between us. 

How do you structure your day now that a little one depends on you?

Being a mom is the most demanding, most rewarding, best and hardest thing I have ever done. Timing and prioritizing is key but I also know to go with the flow because things will get thrown off track and it’s ok! I try to wake up each morning before anyone else gets up so I have time for myself before I focus all my attention on parenting. It is so important to me that I still make time for self care and alone time. That way, I’m able to be a more patient person and I think a better mom & partner. 

What is your favorite Natural Spa Treatment?

Our Signature Back Treatment as it is a one of a kind truly pampering experience from head to toe. The back is the main focus of this treatment but it is so much more. Everything from the warmed sugar scrub paste massaged into the skin, the application of a clay mask along with steam on the back, a fantastic scalp massage and to finish it off, a lower leg and foot massage using our Arnica Salve. I felt any tension and soreness I had at the time melt away with this treatment. Backs need love too!

Where are your favorite places to escape to in Asheville?

Asheville is so ridiculously beautiful that it’s hard not to want to spend your time outdoors. My favorite place to hike off the parkway is Black Balsam Knob. I never get tired of the views out there. Any body of water to jump in is fun too!

Do you have a favorite product or two?

I love using all of our products but if I had to choose, these are my faves-

Daily Face Polish is such a treat to use every morning. My skin is left feeling soft, plump and fresh. No matter what, I apply our Evening Rose Facial Serum twice a day. For me it's as natural as it gets being formulated around with four organic plant oils. Applied to damp skin it feels so smooth and my skin is instantly toned, hydrated and happy. I can't get over how incredible our Bergamot & Lavender Body Balm is! This is exactly what I look for in a balm: organic beeswax, organic cocoa butter, and a fresh scent. This product is so nutritious and has lasting hydrating power. I will forever be grateful for our Natural Deodorant. It smells amazing, it’s pH balanced, and it works!

What does your perfect day look like?

My perfect day would be one that is full of sunshine, iced matcha lattes, plant shopping and eating a delicious meal at any local spot in town. All alongside my two favorite people, my sweet little family.
