A little more than a week ago my mother gave me the kind of news that I personally had been dreading for a few
years. The dreaded words were not “grandpa is sick,” or something like “I’m really displeased with your life to
date” or even the terrifying “I’d like to act as a wingman for your brother.” Mom leveled an unexpected, “Aunt X
has invited us all to dinner when we are in Minnesota,” directly at me as we walked out the door on some random
afternoon. My aunt and I have a rather contentious relationship, with a feud that has lasted nearly longer than I
care to admit and isn’t about anything that I grant her the right to be mad about. I freely admit that I had a very
brief period where my judgment was 99% questionable, as have a lot of really good people, but I got better and I
learned from the mistakes I made. The things in the feud have nothing to do with bad judgment, and everything to
do with an extreme unwillingness to admit that her own genetic material at worst made a bad choice and at best
just had loose lips when it came to Mimosa’s. No matter how it all started, it’s evident that the whole thing still
causes me giant jolts of stress and the only thing that brings to mind is how I can possibly escape the feelings with
a trip to our own Spa Donya.
We’ve had quite a few of you visit us at Warm Mineral Springs “Central,” here in North Port, but the majority of
that business tends to be both in the Springs and outside of the Springs enjoying the water and the sunshine. A
visit to our “shores” for a swim surely kicks in the stress relieving endorphins, taking away some pain as you turn
into a mellow guest, but enjoying the healing waters without a trip to Spa Donya means you are missing out..
There is one or two of you out there saying “this is where they give me the pitch,” and you’re right because we
need to open your eyes to a world in which our own healing waters are used to create the products that will help
heal you. That’s correct, all of our Spa Donya products are natural; made with waters and salts from our own
Springs; preservative free and most carry the added Florida “must have” in a “hint of citrus” that just makes it that
much more awesome.
A favorite for those who have been to the spa is our eye contour cream, which handily defeats those fine lines
that so many of us wage war against each and every day with our skin care regime. In the drier winter months, we
are more likely to see our friends and fans choose our Hydrating Laminaria Oil for giving dry skin; dry hair and dry
cuticles a kick in the seat of the pants. Both are almost sinful, yet so simple and natural that they are fit for even
the “greenest” of the “green.”
I didn’t get much of an opportunity to jump into the treatments available at Spa Donya, and the stress relieving
nature of each, but even writing a little bit about the products I will get to encounter on my “day away from stress”
made me come down from my freak-out. Expect to see, and read, more on those treatments in the very near
p.s. We had a Facebook Fan ask if we used Vegan nail polish, and the answer is “yes!”
