Beer in the Spa

I love a pint of  a good American IPA and find that it does help relax me and brings me stress relief. Hops have been known for years by herbalists to be a nervine herb that supports the nervous system.  It has pain relieving properties, is sedative and promotes sleep.

In fact, we grow hops on our farm and use them in our dream pillows to help promote sleep. Hops are also very useful for skin care because they decrease inflammation and promote skin hydration. The phytoestrogens in hops help reduce wrinkles and improve collagen.

Beer Spa

Some skin care professionals have taken note of these, both in Europe and the US. We do use hops in several of our products including Coolness Aftershave and Red Rocks Beard Oil, but some spas also use beer in treatments. I find this so intriguing and appealing that I am going to give a presentation on Beer in the Spa next month at one of our local micro breweries, 300 Suns. Can you imagine sitting in a tub filled with beer as you pour yourself a pint from the spout? Ahhh. Ok, maybe that is a figment of my imagination, but please, let me have my fantasy. Here’s the details on the talk that you are going to want to attend!

For a mere $15 you can attend the presentation, have a pint of your choice and give yourself a beer facial mask!

This happens on Wednesday April 13 from 6:30-7:30 pm at 300 Suns,  335 First Avenue (they are practically our neighbors), Longmont.  You can purchase your tickets here. No time for dinner? Did you know 300 Suns now serves food?

We’ll see you there!

I’ve previously written about hops here.

August Farm Tour

Have you always wanted to visit a small herb farm? Do you want to learn more about growing herbs and their uses? Do you want to see where the Colorado Aromatics herbs are grown? Now you can. August 28, 2015 we will host a small tour on our farm. We’d love to invite any area estheticians, any of our local customers or would be customers, as well as anyone interested in herbs. You’ll get a good look at where we grow the herbs to use in the Colorado Aromatics Cultivated Skin Care line.

Farm Tour August 28

We are nearing the end of our growing season so the work load is less, but we always welcome volunteers on the farm. In fact, during this tour, feel free to pull up a weed or two, just make sure you ask as many things that other people consider weeds, we consider herbs. Plantain for instance is one of our favorite herbs. But we have plenty of easily identifiable grass, stickers and bindweed to pull.

We will hold the tour rain or shine (or frost) so dress accordingly – we are farmers after all, and wear sturdy shoes. Its a good idea to bring a water bottle too.

We do not have products available for purchase on the farm but we invite you to visit our store at the corner of 3rd and Lashley (340 Lashley, unit 220), an 8 minute drive from the farm, to purchase products. Our esthetician will be at the store immediately following the tour in case you have questions about how to use the products.

Meet on the farm on Aug 28 at 10:00. Park on the concrete drive in front of the garage, or on the grass, off the gravel drive on the north side. Walk down the gravel drive on the north side of the house and meet in front of the outbuilding with the purple door.  Who knows, this may be the first ‘annual’ farm tour.
