I recently hosted the Simply Be You Retreat in August at the beautiful Casselodge Bed & Breakfast in Casselman, Ontario.

It was a weekend where women came to unwind, relax, let go, and learn more about themselves.

For two days the women ate like queens (the food was amazing), visited the hobby farm and the animals there,  practiced easy, gentle yoga, did meditation, and learned effective self-healing tools to help them invite greater ease and joy into their day to day lives.

And the icing on the cake, was the gift bags!


One of my top love languages is Gifts.  And so, I love giving gifts to people to show them my appreciation and love.  I filled the goodie bags with some of my favourite self-care tools and products.

Among, the items in the bag were pure, natural, and safe Body Products from one of my favourite companies-

Kalp Ayurvedic Products.

” Kalp is a holistic route to effective skin care management. Our products are handcrafted and deep rooted in ancient Ayurveda, a 5000-year-old proven system of natural healing. Ayurveda literally translates to “The Science of Life” and it is exactly that. Our thorough decade long research has proven the immense wisdom that lies in the evolution of Ayurvedic care. It gives us milestones to live by based on nature, the seasons and our senses. We integrate this knowledge to understand your true potential and the energy that you bring. Our aim is to find the perfect healthy balance to simplified skin by keeping your environment, mind, body and spirit in mind.”

The women received their incredibly nourishing Namaste Hand Butter and the Ekrup Ayurvedic Natural Facial Mist

The Namaste Hand Butter smells divine and is one of my favourite fixes for dry hands and the Facial Mist is perfect for spritzing on before meditation to calm the mind and invite greater ease and joy into the moment.

For years, I have sought to use products that are not only safe and high on performance but also help to bring overall balance and healing to my body, mind, and soul.

I love the energy of these products and the rootedness in the ancient traditions of culture and Ayurvedic principles and love to share them with others who are also looking for something natural and healing to use in their daily self-care rituals.

I often say that the body is the vessel for the soul’s work.

I truly believe that healing takes place on the inside and that the products we use on the outside can impact this process.  The things you choose to put on and in your body have an effect that goes beyond the physical.

If you’re looking for some incredible self-care products to add into your daily self-care routine, I highly recommend you check out Kalp Ayurvedic Products.
