Have you ever wondered what happens to our beloved Secret Garden and its wonderful staff over the winter months? My name is Andrea, and I'm here to let the secret out! The Brys Secret Garden gift shop is open from late-May to mid-November and the remaining months are packed full of preparations, creations, and hibernation!
We all enjoy a good soak in the tub from time to time and adding bath salts can make it even more enjoyable. But should we be taking baths more often? Well, tub-lovers, we have good news for you! There are several benefits of taking a hot soak and even more if you add in bath salts!
Humans have been taking baths for centuries and many cultures believe them to have medicinal value. From Japanese onsen (traditional bathing in hot springs), to Roman bath houses and even baptisms, bath-time can be very important to your health. So why not treat yourself? Although baths alone hold a lot of benefits such as relaxing muscles, reducing blood pressure and improving your mood, adding bath salts can add even more amazing benefits.
The holidays can be a busy time of year! Follow our new gift wrapping guide to create unique and simple presents for all the people you love!
We receive questions about what happens with our lavender after it has been harvested, especially this time of the year when the lavender is no longer in bloom, so we thought we'd take the time to remind you how we use the harvest from the 6,000 lavender plants we grow here on Old Mission Peninsula!
Spring is a welcomed change on Old Mission Peninsula. The long, cold, and dark winter months had us eager only to bundle up and rest along with our landscape. The start of spring has us anticipating the beauty we know will surround soon us, but there is a lot of work to be done to get us there.
