Kocoon’s Immune Boosting Infusion

Autumn is at door, and often, the change of season and transition to winter means dullness, lack vitality, making you prone to illness. If you feel a flu is on its way, we recommend increasing your vitamin C intake with this immune boosting infusion. Drink it all day! Ingredients: 

  • 1 orange
  • cloves
  • cinnamon sticks
  • raw honey
  • Optional: Ginger, which has a warming effect and making it a perfect ingredient for the cooler days

How to make your infusion: 1-Boil water with 3 cloves and 1 big or 2 small cinnamon sticks 2- Cut half an orange in wedges and squeeze them in a tea pot

 3-Place all the orange wedges with their skin in the tea pot.

 4-Add 3 cloves (stick them in the orange so they dont come out when pouring tea) +1 cinnamon stick. 5-Pour the hot water on the mixture, blend, and wait until it cools down a bit before adding the honey. Refill: Add some cinnamon powder + the other half of orange + 1 tbsp honey

5-Pour the hot water on the mixture, blend, and wait until it cools down a bit before adding the honey. Refill: Add some cinnamon powder + the other half of orange + 1 tbsp honey

Warning: -If you don’t have cinnamon sticks, this can be replaced by a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Cinnamon can make you sweat as it stimulates your blood flow! -Never boil honey or pour honey on boiling water! Wait until the tea has cool down a bit before adding honey. Heat can destroy the enzymes and thus, dilute a lot of the medicinal value of the honey.

Extra TCM Tip: Although many people associate honey with being ‘soothing’ for sore throats, it is actually highly astringent and has a ‘drying’ quality. So while it’s great to use honey when you are in the ‘congested’, mucousy phase of a cold for example, or when you have an inflamed throat (without it being ‘dry’), while you are in the ‘dry cough’ stage of a cold, you may want to avoid it temporarily.

Benefits of the Immune Boosting Infusion:

  • Immune boosting
  • Energizing, stimulates blood flow
  • Sweat out your toxins!
  • Kills germs, bacterias
  • Relieve sore throat
Tip: "It may not be very TCM but if I am feeling sick, I will also drink it before bedtime by adding a little bit of whiskey or rum and butter. This will immediately put me in a deep slumber sleep, exactly what I need for a speedy recovery!" Maika. Co-Founder of Kocoon spa 

健康诀窍

增强免疫力茶泡制方法: 秋天到了,通常季节的交替和到冬天的过度意味着沉闷,缺乏活力,使你容易生病。如果你感觉可能要感冒,我们建议你一天喝一杯我们的增强免疫力茶来增加维生素C的摄入。

需要准备:

  • 1个橙子
  • 丁香
  • 肉桂枝
  • 少量蜂蜜
  • 选择: 姜,有保暖的效果,在寒冷的日子里是个完美的选择。

如何制作自己的茶:

1.将3个丁香和1个大的或者2个小的肉桂枝煮沸。

2.把半个橙子切成几瓣,挤压橙子汁至茶壶中。

3.将所有的橙子瓣连皮放至茶壶中。 4.添加:3个丁香(把丁香摁到橙子皮上,所以在水加热的过程中,丁香不至于掉到茶中),再放上1个肉桂枝。 5.把热水倒入茶壶中,混合直至冷却再加入蜂蜜。 加水:添加一些肉桂粉和另一半橙子,再放入一茶勺蜂蜜

5.把热水倒入茶壶中,混合直至冷却再加入蜂蜜。

加水:添加一些肉桂粉和另一半橙子,再放入一茶勺蜂蜜

注意:

如果没有肉桂枝,可以用半勺肉桂粉代替。肉桂可以排毒,刺激血液循环。

永远不要加热蜂蜜或者将蜂蜜放到水中加热。必须等到茶凉后加入少量蜂蜜。热量可以破坏酶,从而稀释蜂蜜的药用价值。

虽然很多人喉咙痛会联想到用蜂蜜(是它的抗发炎),它实际上是高度的收敛(这意味着它将水分从组织中吸取了。也就是说它有一个“干燥”的品质)

增强免疫力茶的益处:

  • 增强免疫力
  • 使人精力充沛,刺激血液流动
  • 排毒
  • 消灭细菌,病毒
  • 缓解咽喉肿痛

Tamarind Salt Body Scrub

 Consisting of tamarind and sea salts, this scrub will rejuvenate the skin cells and get rid of your dead skin layer. After you rinse off in the shower, your body will be conditioned with Elemental Herbology’s Summer Hydrator, leaving your body smooth and soft to the touch!

Salt is a gentle natural exfoliate that sloughs off dead skin. It also has minerals to soften skin and restore hydration. It also helps cleanse pores deeply, balance oil production and thwart bacteria that can instigate breakouts and acne.

Tamarind is a wonderful source of alpha hydroxyl acids. AHA, as it is commonly referred to, is one of the major ingredients in various leading exfoliating creams available in the market. These ingredients possess the potential to eliminate the dirt and impurities that lie deep inside the skin, unclogging the clogged skin pores. Tamarind is also packed with various acids, antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins that combat the free radicals so it is a perfect after sun healing treatment. The Vitamin C, A, and other antioxidants present in tamarind enables it to act as a natural cure for various inflammatory skin conditions, including pimples and acne.

Slimming Massage description:

What is a Slim­ming Massage?

Dur­ing Kocoon’s slim­ming mas­sage, you will undergo mul­ti­ple slim­ming mas­sage tech­niques, from rub­bing and mas­sag­ing to slap­ping and palper rouler. These tech­niques aim to rup­ture and dis­rupt pock­ets of fat, which will result in a reduc­tion in the appear­ance of “pit­ted” cel­lulite. Your ther­a­pist will also stim­u­late increased blood cir­cu­la­tion to reduce excess water in detected regions of your body. We use a spe­cial blend of essen­tial oils dur­ing the mas­sage ses­sion as well as Ele­men­tal Herbology’s SOS cir­cu­la­tion serum to expand on the effec­tive­ness of the massage.

What to expect?

After a con­sul­ta­tion with your Spa Ther­a­pist, the ses­sion will be tar­geted on spe­cific areas where the cel­lulite is local­ized, thus, don’t expect a full body relax­ing massage!

Will I look slimmer?

You will not have vis­i­ble result on your skin after just one ses­sion, but you may feel an imme­di­ate relief and increased energy due to improved blood cir­cu­la­tion. Espe­cially good if you have tired and heavy legs, you will feel like you just did a workout! Understanding fat

Adding cupping:

The cup­ping method increases the treatment’s per­for­mance and speed up the slim­ming process. It is espe­cially rec­om­mended for the more “stub­born fat”. We move the cups around your tar­geted areas, with a suc­tion effect, and we alter­nate man­ual mas­sage and cups.We use a spe­cial blend of essen­tial oils dur­ing the mas­sage ses­sion as well as Ele­men­tal Herbology’s SOS cir­cu­la­tion serum to expand on the effec­tive­ness of the mas­sage. How does it work? 

Express Facial with Elemental Herbology

A per­fect pick me up for those on the go, or as an intro­duc­tion to our ser­vices. Your skin will feel clean, smooth, and refreshed! Includes; cleans­ing, exfo­li­a­tion, ton­ing and moisturizing cream application.
