winter warmer

As the winter chill sets in, it’s the perfect time to slow down, cozy up, and show some love to your body. In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of prioritizing gut health, sipping on bone broth, and embracing self-care rituals. We’ll also delve into how a nourishing facial at HB Beauty Palmwoods can amplify your winter wellness routine. Let’s dive in and discover the secrets to nurturing your body during the cooler months.

Embracing Gut Health. Did you know that a healthy gut is the foundation of overall well-being? During winter, it’s essential to support your gut to maintain optimal health. Incorporate gut-friendly foods such as probiotics, fermented foods, and fiber-rich fruits and vegetables into your diet. These will promote a balanced microbiome, boost immunity, and enhance digestion, leaving you feeling vibrant and nourished from the inside out.

Sip on Soothing Bone Broth. Winter calls for warm and comforting treats, and what could be better than a steaming cup of bone broth? Packed with collagen, essential amino acids, and minerals, bone broth provides a nourishing elixir for your body. It supports gut health, promotes joint health, and strengthens your immune system. Sip on a cup of this liquid gold and feel the warmth and vitality infuse your being.

Slowing Down and Listening to Your Body. Winter invites us to slow down, tune in, and listen to our body’s needs. Take this opportunity to rest, recharge, and engage in mindful practices. Curl up with a good book, indulge in a warm bath, or simply spend time in reflection and gratitude. By honoring your body’s signals and embracing self-care, you’ll cultivate a deeper connection with yourself and find balance in the busyness of life.

Nourishing Facials at HB Beauty Palmwoods. Winter can take a toll on our skin, leaving it dry, dull, and in need of extra TLC. Enter the nourishing facial at HB Beauty Palmwoods, designed to replenish and restore your skin’s natural radiance. Our expert skin therapists use high-quality products and techniques tailored to your skin’s specific needs. A nourishing facial can hydrate, soothe, and rejuvenate your skin, bringing back that healthy glow even in the harshest winter months.

Benefits of a Winter Facial. Deep Hydration: Winter air tends to be drier, which can leave your skin parched. A nourishing facial deeply hydrates and moisturizes, replenishing lost moisture and restoring a supple, dewy complexion.

Soothing and Calming. Our facials incorporate gentle massage techniques that help relieve stress and tension, promoting relaxation and a sense of well-being.

Renewed Radiance. By exfoliating dead skin cells and stimulating cell turnover, a facial can reveal a fresh, radiant complexion that’s ready to shine.

As winter embraces us with its crisp air and cozy ambiance, it’s the perfect time to nurture your body and prioritize self-care. Focus on gut health, sip on nourishing bone broth, and slow down to listen to your body’s needs. And don’t forget to indulge in a nourishing facial at HB Beauty Palmwoods to give your skin the love and attention it deserves.

Customized Skincare. Our therapist assess your skin’s needs and tailor the facial to address specific concerns, whether it’s dryness, sensitivity, or dullness. This personalized approach ensures optimal results.


Bestow Bone Broth Recipe


1 half an organic chicken

1 leek, chopped in half

1 celery stick, halved

1 parsnip

1 carrot

1 onion, halved (skin on is fine)

2-3 garlic cloves

2 bay leaves

2 inches of fresh ginger

2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar

1 handful of Italian parsley (stalks and all)

1 tablespoon of Himalayan Salt (coarse or ground)

8 cups of water


Place all ingredients into a slow cooker and cook on low for a minimum of five to seven hours.

About five hours into cooking, take the chicken out. Separate the cooked chicken flesh from the bones. Set the chicken aside and place the bones back in the slow cooker for the remainder of the cooking time or skip this step if you are not at home. Cool broth, and strain out the bones and vegetables into container or jars that can be refrigerated and frozen. Once cool, scrape off any fat that has solidified on the top. Will last several days in the fridge and also freezes well.

Use the chicken flesh for chicken soup!


When cooking other vegetables for other meals and you have offcuts or leftovers of raw vegetables you can add these to snaplock bags and freeze for future batches of broth. Just ensure offcuts are clean first.
