Winter Wellness Retreat

Reset and recharge for the new year ahead

January 17 - 19, 2020

Welcome a new year and a chance to reset with a restorative retreat at Los Poblanos, conveniently scheduled over the first long weekend of the year. Escape to the farm and spend a slow weekend amongst cozy wood-burning fireplaces and relaxing lavender sessions that will help combat dry skin that comes from winter hibernation. Enjoy field-to-fork meals prepared by our award-winning culinary team and rest easy in our healthy, relaxing guest rooms. This immersive weekend will allow you to truly experience the healing benefits of lavender while eating nourishing organic meals and spending time out of doors in the beautiful North Valley.

Friday

Arrive Friday afternoon and, after checking into your room, craft your own bath salt or scrub to enjoy that evening. Learn about the history of our signature product, Lavender Salve, and experience our production process by pouring your own to take home. Help prepare the copper still, which distills plants into essential oil and hydrosol, using plant material harvested steps from the still itself. Then enjoy a seasonal family-style dinner prepared with fresh, organic ingredients from our own farm and local food shed.

Saturday & Sunday

Wake refreshed on Saturday and, after a group breakfast, spend the day steeped in lavender, beginning with an introduction to the steam distillation process and experiencing a live distillation. Make your own lavender sachet while discussing the plant and enjoy a chef-prepared lunch. Spend the early afternoon checking on the still and pouring hydrosol from the distillation. Then Brandilyn Fagan, Licensed Esthetician and our Wholesale Sales Manager at Los Poblanos, will guide you through a winter skincare routine developed specially for harsh winter weather. While traditional skincare consultations are often costly, we’re thrilled to offer a unique opportunity to deepen your understanding of skincare and engage with our in-house expert. Time will be allotted to ask questions regarding a personalized routine, and you’ll take all of the items used in the regimen home with you. You’ll then be invited to wander our organic lavender fields and be treated to a guided meditation, followed by an indoor sound healing session. Programming will then close for the day, and you’re invited to attend the Savor de Legumbres dinner (tickets sold separately), dine at Campo or make other dining arrangements. The retreat will close on Sunday morning with a short sound healing session and closing statements.
