Spring Day Spa on Jl Petitenget, Seminyak.

Ok, so this may quite possibly be my new favourite day spa. The beautiful Spring on Jl Petitenget Seminyak. I had heard amazing things about it and not wanting to be underwhelmed I went in with little expectations and I was totally impressed, that much so I had to book some more treatments for later the same day ( just to be sure I had totally sampled the goods for you lot ) . I love everything about this place. The staff were very professional and the spa its self just stunning and serene. I really like the add ons for the manicures and pedicures of shoulder/scalp/neck massage. Iced cold water, hand towels, rubic cubes ( if they don’t drive you crackers that is) and ambient music as well. The products they use are very high quality so I really dont mind paying a little more and the techniques are of equally high standards. I had the most incredible massage. I also tried the oxygen facial which made my skin beautiful and clear and felt amazing. A mid priced spa which I can highly recommend.

~ Flower Crowns ~

I recently lost a beautiful friend to breast cancer and just felt like I needed some quality time to reflect, and appreciate life. I lay the rug in the sunshine to make some beautiful, fragrant, flower crowns and garlands with my little ones ( or not so little ones). Its really easy, you just need a few bunches of frangipanis, some thread and either a needle or toothpick ( you just tie the thread to a tooth pick ) or use a needle and thread and just poke it through the centre being careful to keep them straight and keep threading them on to make a full crown or even longer to make a necklace they smell amazing too.

Bali Hindu Offerings ~ Canang Sari

Did you know the offerings you see everywhere are part of the daily Balinese Hindu rituals, are all hand made every day in their 1000’s ? Usually by the Ibu ( mothers). They can be purchased for around 10 000 Rupiah ready made, however if made from scratch a lot cheaper. We were curious to learn what they meant and the significance of all of the parts which make these beautiful offerings. While at the Denpasar markets grabbing some fruit we brought all the items needed and were taught how to make them. What I have learnt is that there are various interpretations of the meaning behind them and perhaps a little lost in translation. One theory is that they are a “Thank you symbol” for peace given to the world. The word “Canang” is originally from the Kawi Language and means “beautiful purpose”. Canang Sari has some major components which include symbolising the three major Gods in Hinduism. Shiva , Vishnu and Brahma. Canang sari are set in a tray made from palm leaf as a symbol of Ardha Candra. They are overlaid by flowers placed in a specific direction. Each direction symbolizes a Hindu God:
White-colored flowers lay in the east as a symbol of Iswara
Red-colored flowers placed in the south as a symbol of Brahma
Yellow-colored flowers placed in the west as a symbol of Mahadeva
Blue or green colored flowers put in the north as a symbol of Vishnu
A canang sari is completed by placing amount money on the top , this is said to make up the essence (the “sari”) of the offering. Incense is lit and holy water sprinkled during the prayer process.107114120143146167
