Have you ever heard of Chaga Tea? Owners Frank and Nancy discovered Chaga while foraging in Prince Edward County. This mushroom grows off the trunk of birch trees in northern climates and when brewed into a hot beverage is basically nature’s superfood.

Change out of your sweats and throw on a county chic dress! We love the selection of dresses on the Luna Boutique website! If you like the look of bronzed skin after a day at the beach, lather up on Luna Bronze self-tanner which can be purchased on the Bloomfield Beauty Co website.
Maybe for you being at the beach is practicing some yoga on a stand-up paddleboard. Although, we don’t recommend that you try SUP in your bathtub, we do suggest trying out the Yoga Hub Belleville Facebook page for virtual classes.

Make Your Place Feel Like A Spa
We’re no stranger to self-care rituals. Here is a list of products to help you feel relaxed, soft, and so fresh and so clean (clean).
We love a good luxurious facial from Jenn at Cove Esthetics. So, when we heard that she would be selling exclusive at-home facial kits we were thrilled! You can shop for Hydro Jelly masks, (which are so trendy right now) and her favourite skincare line ‘IMAGE’ on her Instagram account (just send Jenn a message!)
If you own a bathtub you need to try this the Sensa Stone bath bomb in the scent Woodstock (also available at Cove Esthetics). Ease your mind and soothe your body with the finest quality of CB2TM, a high concentration of Epsom salts, and 100% pure essential oils. Add a good bath pillow, candle, and a jar of The Cheesecakery Bakery to escape to a feeling of pure bliss!
Afterward, wrap yourself up in an Onderbroeks Robe (available at Bloomfield Beauty Co) to elevate your at-home look. For the perfect manicure, we suggest Bloomfield Beauty Co’s cuticle oil made with essential oils and botanicals.
