alike to extract essential oils and waters. The Spa at Farmhouse is a partnership
between Farmhouse and legendary spa consultants Francis & Alexander.

and helped design some of the worlds most prestigious spas including The
Spa at Auberge du Soleil, Solage Calistoga, 29 Spa at The Mansion on Peachtree

utilizing produce harvested and distilled on site will be cornerstones of the
Spa at Farmhouse by Francis & Alexander. Guests will be invited to participate
in the distilling process and learn how to re-create the experience at home.

proprietors) and herbs grown in Farmhouses kitchen garden are examples of
the ingredients that will be incorporated into the farm to treatment menu of spa
services. These will include massage, body wraps, skincare and specialty baths.
Organic grape seeds will be used for skin therapies to further the wine country
experience. Life Enrichment programs on health, beauty and stress reduction will
be offered. Romantic couples treatments will be offered year round in the spa

You can clean your home, fruits, vegetables and meats with the same 'Aqueous Ozone' that spas and other companies use.Tersano's ‘Aqueous Ozone’ Cleaning Systemt is the world's most effective chemical-free cleaner. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ quickly oxidizes (kills) viruses and bacteria (including E.coli, Salmonella, MRSA, C-Difficil), mold, mildew and other contaminants on any item or surface - from toilets to bedspreads - before changing safely back into water and oxygen. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ is 3000 times faster and 50% more powerful than bleach and chlorine-based cleaners. It is 100% chemical free - no toxins, carcinogens or chemical residue - and safe for babies, pets and people with sensitive skin or those with strong reactions to normal cleaners. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ has long been used in water treatment, food sterilization and medical therapies for its remarkable anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties. It sounds too good to be true, but the data show how effective the system works.
