For the month of February, we are offering our Chocolate Spa Day packages which consist of chocolate infused treatments. Although available year round as an off menu service available by special request, our chocolate services are our most requested Valentine’s Day gift. In addition to chocolate being a fun themed gift idea for Valentine’s, cocoa also has endless benefits for skin, hair, and nails. Our popular Chocolate Spa Services include our Chocolate Smoothie Hair Mask, Decadent Whipped Chocolate Spa Manicure & Pedicure, Chocolate Detoxifying Body Wrap, Cocoa Bean Body Polish with Warm Sugar Scrub, Swedish Chocolate Massage, and our Chocolate Antioxidant Facial
Let’s celebrate chocolate. Let’s celebrate it not just because it’s delicious and not because we love to eat it on Valentine’s Day, let’s celebrate it because we love it and it’s actually good for you. For years, chocolate was disparaged as being unhealthy. Highly processed chocolate is not good for you, but pure chocolate has amazing benefits. Chocolate that is pure is healthy when it is consumed, whether you eat or drink it.
Treat your skin while enjoying the benefits of chocolate without the extra calories! Pure chocolate, yes pure, raw cocoa, has as many perks when you apply it to your skin, hair and nails as when you ingest it! So slather it on and enjoy the chocolate goodness & aroma of cocoa!
This month, we have brought back services, normally on our “secret menu” to our daily offerings and feature them during this especially confectionary occasion. Saint Valentine’s Day is considered a feast day in the Western Christian calendar. This minor feast day has been adopted into universal culture and is popular around the world, not limited to Christianity. It is a feast of chocolates for everybody!
Yes, chocolate is associated with romance. Why should chocolate be reserved for loving couples and singles on this special day of the year? It shouldn’t! Some people that are single enjoy valentine’s day and celebrate their freedom as a single person. They should celebrate. But let’s celebrate chocolate inclusively. Let’s all celebrate as lovers of chocolate!
Do you love chocolate enough to not just eat it, but to use it as a beauty aid? You absolutely should! Continue reading to see our featured services and how cocoa is specifically beneficial to your whole body, from your follicles, to your fingers, toes, and nose.

Using fine cacao powder in our cleansing scrub, we exfoliate your body and leave you feeling fresh and restored. There are pieces of coca bean in our body polish that aid in exfoliation, they are not powdered, but are finer and softer than sand and less abrasive. The result is skin that glows. In addition to the detoxifying, antioxidant and nourishing qualities of cocoa, the body polish will also improve circulation and blood flow to your skin. It is invigorating! Give your skin the TLC it deserves with our cocoa bean body polish.
