Dead Sea Mud Mask ∙ Facial masks can sometimes be too drying for drier skin types, but because this is a cream-based formula, you’ll get the great benefits of a mask without sucking the much needed moisture from your skin. It’s the perfect way to pamper yourself when you need some “me time.”
Golden Glow Face & Body Oil ∙ Because oil helps your skin retain its natural moisture better than lotion, it’s a must-have when the air turns dry in the winter. Bonus: it’s easier to rub in, too! This body oil soaks in quickly and has a lovely lavender scent. And it’s made using frankincense and carrot seed oils for the anti-aging benefits.

Available in sizes small to extra large.

THE ESSENTIAL BODY
Personalized Health Coaching ∙ Free advice is everywhere. How to eat. What to eat. How to exercise. Do this for “optimal energy.” We’ve all seen these posts and articles. And most of us have experienced a doctor or medical professional telling us that we have to make a lifestyle change or “suffer the consequences.” Well that’s all fine and good, but who of us can do it alone? Even when we have support from friends and family, they may not know how best to support you. Despite their best intentions they start to nag, criticize, or just plain get “fed up.” That’s where a Health Coach comes in! Health Coaches use evidence-based skillful conversation, clinical interventions and strategies to engage clients in lasting behavior changes to address health and wellness goals.
