Farmhouse Fresh has NEW gift sets and soaps!

fhftextThe other day, I ran home to walk my pups and came back inside to a string of *slightly enthusiastic* texts from our desk manager Kelly telling me that Farmhouse Fresh had released new products and new gift sets!  Farmhouse Fresh rarely gives us teasers before releasing new goodies, we usually stumble upon them on their order form first so it is as exciting as finding a Pokemon when you least expect to! (Did I get the analogy right?)

 

Gift Sets:

farmhouse fresh travel setsSweeping Softness:  Travel sizes of the Sweet Cream scrub, Whoopie Cream shea butter lotion, and Agave Nector body oil

Quick Recovery: Travel size mask trio including Guac Star, Pudding Apeel, and Splendid Dirt

Skin Saviors: Travel sizes of Whoopie Cream, Rainbow Road, and Fluffy Bunny shea butters

Shea Butter Soaps:

Farmhouse Fresh Soap

New scents: Citrine Beach and Coconut Cream.  Citrine beach also has a matching body milk lotion and Coconut Beach complements the popular Coconut Beach shea butter scrub. We are now carrying the Front Porch Punch shea butter soap again as well!

Pro tip: When you unwrap your soap, put the pretty paper in your linen closet to lightly scent towels!

Coming Soon: Farmhouse Fresh Lip Balms

Farmhouse Fresh Lip BalmsWhile we don’t yet have these awesome looking lip balms, we promise we’ll have them SOON!

Farmhouse Fresh Sale.Because we’re making room for so many Farmhouse Fresh goodies, we’ll be marking a few items 25% off including all in-stock Magnificent Milk and Bright Eyed and Bushy-Tailed Farmhouse Fresh travel facial skin care sets and the Pink Moon scented shea butters.

Ideas for Dads

Did you know that 47% of spa goers are men?  According to the International Spa Association President, Lynne McNees “The number one reason both men and women visit a spa worldwide is to learn how to manage their stress. Men and women may deal with stress in different ways, but surprisingly, they both find spas as an outlet.”

Father’s day is a perfect opportunity to share the benefits of stress reduction and pain relief with the men in your life.  The following our are top suggestions for gifts for dads (or grandpas!)

Products for Pain Relief:

tiger balmTiger Balm patches and salves are great for guys who complain of soreness.  Our massage therapists incorporate tiger balm into many sports massages as well.  The patches are great self-care and really popular with men.

kneipp arnicaKneipp arnica products are another popular choice for guys. The joint and muscle active gel has an instant cooling effect, while the arnica cream is unscented and absorbs into skin quickly.  They are great for arthritis pain, bruising, inflammation or tenderness.

Stress Relieving Products

kneipp sweet dreams

Whether he tosses and turns all night or needs some general stress relief, Kneipp herbal baths have lots of solutions.  The Sweet Dreams bath includes Valerian and Hops and is a perfect prelude to a good night of sleep.

Gift Certificates

East Village Spa gift cards are a perfect gift for father’s day!  You can purchase them in a denomination or for a specific service.  Some of the most popular treatments for men are:

  • The EV Signature Massage which is great for stress relief

5 Great Mother’s Day Ideas

Mother’s Day is a fun excuse to pamper the women in your life (moms, grandmas, wives, sisters, godmothers, dog-mothers, fill-in mothers…you name it!)  Here are a few of our favorite ideas!

1. A spa gift card.  We make it easy!  Pop into the spa and we have 2 great packages ready to go with popular service combinations.  Can’t make it in or pampering mom from a distance?  Purchase a gift card online and print it to include in your mother’s day card or e-mail it to mom!

Wellness Facial at East Village Spa 22. Two treats for tired feet: Our Farmhouse Fresh Honey Heel Glaze is a great mask for rough calluses on the feet (and dry hands) and is one of Oprah’s favorite things.  The Derma E Intensive Therapy Foot Cream is a great pick-me-up for moms who are on their feet all day, providing a zippy mint scent and circulatory boost.

Relax at East Village Spa and Beautify at Blo: We still (as of typing this) have 4 openings for our Mother’s Day “MOMosa” event at the spa, enjoy 2 hours of indulgence (mimosas, pastries, a special lavender honey massage and lavender honey facial) for just $200 all inclusive. Our neighbors across the street at Blo Blowdry Bar also have a great Mother’s Day Special!  Book a blow out for you and mom on Mother’s Day and mom’s is only $30!

4. A Kneipp Bath Set: The healing properties of water can’t be overstated.  A soothing soak in the tub with aroma-therapeutic oils or mineral rich salts and it is like a mini vacation for stressed-out moms.  We have a variety of bath sets, plus single scented salts and mineral oils.

5. Pamper moms-to-be: Purchase a gift card for a Pampering Pregnancy Massage, a fun bottle of non-toxic Zoya nail polish to paint her toe-nails (especially if she can’t reach them herself!) or a Farmhouse Fresh hand cream for a scent-sational treat in her hospital ready bag.
