Why You’re Drawn to Spas?

 

“Women are drawn to spas because they provide one of their few opportunities to receive divinely feminine care. Too many women feel depleted because they themselves don’t take the time to receive, because they are caught up in giving to others. This is especially true of mothers. If this rings true for you, accept this as a personal invitation to take in and receive the pleasures of nature.

If you find yourself resenting the people in your life, it may be because you never learned, first how to give yourself and, second, how to receive from them. Start taking more time for yourself and I promise that you will see a major change for the better in your relationships and even in you “luck. The busiest of women can and should find 5-10 minutes each day for personal pampering “- Greta Breedlove ‘The Herbal Home Spa” book

Feel loved, pampered and coddled with this healthy body oil:
