Sanctuary Found: Lemongrass Soulful Garden Boutique

Lemongrass Spa Garden Boutique Container

Do you ever stumble across a place in your travels that’s so special it makes your heart sing? Well I found such a place in the vibrant evolving Lemongrass Spa smack here in our Encinitas backyard! A not-for-long hidden gem, the Lemongrass Aveda Concept Spa and their new stunningly beautiful Soulful Garden Boutique is beyond magical.

In fact, the goal of the spa is to create a spiritual oasis. Owner/designer Tara Teipel explains, “We want to touch people from the heart side by creating a sanctuary where they can fill up, replenish and become inspired.”

Formerly a floral designer, Tara reconnected with her passion for working with plants by starting a succulent arrangement business together with her mother, Cisca Epstein. They provide arrangements for weddings and other special occasions. Tara & Cisca put a twist on their creations by incorporating healing gemstones uniting both gem and animal kingdoms. They also include fresh flowers such as roses, coxcomb and hydrangea in water tubes. Afterwards people can pull these out and have a lasting living centerpiece and lovely reminder of their particular celebration. The Soulful Garden Boutique is a perfect showcase for these fantastic creations.

Visit Lemongrass and get a jump-start on your holiday shopping at their upcoming “Wrap Up your Holiday Shopping” event this Sunday from 1pm to 5pm. An amazing variety of goods will be on sale from participating vendors including Wabisabi Green, The Wheel, Lily Girl & Diving Spirit, Dahlia Clothing boutique and Loose Leaf Tea. Admission is free.
