Ellen Forsythe and her team of holistic therapists yoke together homeopathic treatments, nutrients, and organic foods to restore balance to minds and bodies. The therapeutic heat emanating from the infrared sauna can burn up to 300 calories in 30 minutes, which is on par with running for a half hour or driving the Flintstones' car to the post office ($20). Muscle pains and arthritic aches can be eased away by the balmy electromagnetic wavelengths, and inner organs may experience a soothing detoxification of heavy metals and other inner pollutants. The sauna is built with cedar wood because of its antibacterial properties, soft inclusion of aromatic oils, and rare ability to convert into a pencil and sketch skyscraper blueprints.
The arrangers at Saskatoon Blossoms craft gorgeous fruit bouquets using fresh and juicy cuts of pineapple, berries, grapes, and melon. Naked fruit flowers present sweet slices without their customary satin frocks, and dressed-up blossoms don melted chocolate and accoutrements such as almonds, sprinkles, or coconut. Veggie blossoms made with cheese and crisp produce round out a balanced, all-blossom diet.
A team of Saskatchewan locals with a passion for agriculture came together to form SaskMade Marketplace⎯a company that supports the local community and educates its customers on farm-to-fork supply methods. Working with a fleet of local famers, artisans, and vendors, SaskMade's owners cull organic grains, natural honeys, humanely raised meats, and gourmet condiments. Among the artisan products, the Saskatoon Berry chocolates hail from Riverbend Plantation—Saskatchewan’s first commercial berry farm—and Three Farmers camelina oil bursts with freshness and flavour. Jars of Droolin’ Devil’s Sinfully Wild garlic salsa add a savoury topping to chips, tortillas, and an enemy's smartphone.
