November 2013

Welcome, old friends and new, to the November Bella Zenn Salon Spa newsletter. If you are like us, you’re gearing up for the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays that are just around the corner. So much to do….so little time….and panic can set in. That is why it is so important to make it a priority to focus on your physical and mental well-being. We want to give a shout-out of thanks to our friend, Rachel Louret, who hosted an evening of fun and information last month. Guests were able to tour her round house, sample some yummy and healthy refreshments, and learn about the concept and benefits of Feng Shui. Our aromatherapist, Terri, was on hand to talk about essential oil use for a healthy home. With such positive feedback, we hope to repeat this offering in the future.

The holiday season is about connecting with friends and loved ones. Try not to get so hung up on all the details (cleaning, shopping, decorating, baking, cooking, wrapping) that you don’t take time to experience the special moments. Baking is fine…if you enjoy it. Team up with a few friends for a cookie exchange, or spend some time with kids or grandkids for a memory-building activity. However, if the very thought stresses you out, support the local church bake sales or kids’ fundraisers, for an easy, guilt-free way to stock up on goodies. Shopping….you either love it or hate it! Let Bella Zenn help you there, with unique and healthy gifts from our Eco-Boutique, or the always coveted spa gift certificate. Remember, by shopping local, you not only boost our community economy, but also save on gas costs and avoid the germ-laden crowds.

Speaking of germs, prevention is the key to avoiding illnesses which can hinder your holiday fun. Many essential oils have been proven to kill viruses and bacteria, responsible for the common cold, flu and even staph and strep infections. Limonene, found in lemon, and other citrus oils, has been shown in university studies to kill germs that cause MRSA, pneumonia and TB. Thieves essential oil blend and Thieves health and cleaning products contain lemon oil, along with cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus and rosemary. Our Rinnovo treatment is a massage incorporating 14 beneficial essential oils. If you will be traveling over the holidays or not able to avoid crowds, consider the Rinnovo as part of your preventive health care.

And remember to schedule time for relaxing and enjoyable activities. Even if you no longer have school age children, try to attend the local choir, band, and school Christmas programs. The smile on the children’s faces brings joy to your heart.

We have a fun and festive evening planned for you. The Bella Zenn Salon Spa and Eco-Boutique will be hosting our holiday open house on Friday, December 6th from 5-8 PM. Featuring live musical performance by Beautiful Buzz, a folk rock acoustic duo; refreshments, crafty activities, chair massage and the chance to win prizes, it will be an evening you won’t want to miss! We will also be introducing our seasonal signature salves: Comfort & Joy, Silent Night and Sugarplum Spice. Hope to see you there.

All of us at Bella Zenn Salon Spa wish you and yours a blessed Thanksgiving…and as always, Be Well!
