Walking along the beach, as you feel the sand slip between your toes, hear the waves crashing against the shore and catch a whiff of the salty sea air, you can’t help but begin to relax. This is the moment your holiday begins. Then, as you dive into the cool, calm azure Caribbean Sea, feel your stress and tension melt away as the water makes contact with your skin.
There’s a reason people come to Pure Grenada to relax and unwind. The island is a natural elixir, and rejuvenation isn’t just limited to the Vitamin ‘D’ and ‘Sea’ on the coastline. The volcanic interior of the island offers hidden sulphur springs with natural healing properties - known to help arthritic pain, digestive disorders and skin irritations. From hot to cold, enjoy an invigorating swim at one of the many waterfalls with plunge pools.
Grenada’s fertile soils produce many herbs, spices and fruit with health benefits, that are used in Grenada’s spas and beauty products worldwide. Cinnamon has antifungal and antibacterial properties, which can ease acne and skin blemishes. It also draws blood to the skin, increasing its moisture content. Nutmeg contains powerful antioxidants which help to prevent cellular damage. It’s also rich in anti inflammatory compounds, known to alleviate joint pain and swelling, and may also reduce risk factors for heart disease - so a small seed that really packs a punch. And you might be surprised to hear of chocolate on your skin instead of in your mouth. Cocoa’s antioxidant properties can help stave off lines, wrinkles and discolouration. Cocoa butter is a common ingredient in skin moisturisers, and dark chocolate makes a luxurious body wrap, heavenly bath and more.
