It is my mission at cityWell to provide affordable and accessible preventive health care to a wide range of urban wellness seekers while making self-care part of everyday life and not just a luxury.

Now, more than ever we need to find ways to bring well-being into our homes and into our lives, by creating simple rituals to help us feel WELL, cared for and connected to our bodies.

With House of Well, it will be my goal to share the many rituals I have cultivated over the years to heal my body and my mind.


Feel Well

Spring is the perfect time to renew and leave those long winter months behind.

This time, I chose lemon as the star ingredient for its many benefits for our well being. 

Lemon is known to help treat acne, blemishes and oily skin. It tightens pores, and brightens the skin. Citrus fruits are packed with Vitamin C and have antibacterial and antioxidant properties. 

Bonus! Lemon scent is very uplifting and enhances your mood.

SPRING RENEWAL - PREPARE YOUR WINTER SKIN FOR THE WARM WEATHER

Lemon-infused face/body scrub

You will need only 3 ingredients that can be found in any kitchen.

  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Brown or white sugar (coarse is better)
  • Oil, olive or coconut, or if you prefer a more neutral oil, use grapeseed oil.

Mix lemon juice and oil of your choice in a bowl.  Add sugar and mix well. 

Apply to your face and let it sit for 5 mins. 

To use it as a body scrub, apply with gentle circular motions, paying attention to spots that tend to have more dry, dead skin build-up (elbows, knees, feet, and hands). 

Rinse off!

If you have a little extra, keep in your fridge, in a jar,  to use later.

  • one coconut water bottle (brand of your choice) I like VITA COCO
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 lime
  • 1 small ginger root
  • cayenne, if you like pepper 🌶
  • a sprig of rosemary for garnish

If you have a mason jar or cocktail shaker that’s great!

Add a few ice cubes into a shaker a mason jar works well too). Then pour about ½ the coconut water.

Add slices of lemon, lime and ginger. Spice it up with a little cayenne and shake.

Pour into a nice glass and top with Rosemary (which is good to keep by your computer for memory retention :)🌿

After hours add a little mezcal for a hydrating cocktail! 😉
