We're filling our fridge with unwieldy bunches of greens, researching juicers on Amazon, and generally vowing to eat our veggies. Yes, it's the season of resolutions. But, while a steady diet of carrot juice detoxes and cucumber salads are perfectly wonderful, we happen to find that a steady diet of carrot-ginger manicures and cucumber-lavender pedicures is a tad more palatable (not to mention infinitely easier to maintain). At Iwi Fresh, garden-fresh goods aren't just the stuff of salad bars—they're the ingredients that make each and every spa service here so deliciously indulgent. Armed with an in-house kitchen, a cornucopia of botanicals, and an owner known as "the Skincare Chef," Iwi Fresh is truly a secret garden of pampering and peace—which are, of course, just as essential to one's health as any diet or workout plan. After all, the road to self-improvement isn't solely paved with green juice and Richard Simmons tapes.After growing up with a grandmother who swore by natural remedies, Yolanda Owens had long been a believer in finding the healing (and beauty-boosting) powers in pure, raw ingredients. Three years ago, she ditched the corporate world to pursue that passion by opening Iwi Fresh, a garden of Eden in the middle of Castleberry Hill. Even the spa itself is like strolling through a secluded garden in the middle of the urban hustle and bustle, green grass and all. Specializing in all-natural ingredients, Iwi Fresh's beauty bar hosts a spread of fresh-made scrubs that smell delicious enough to eat, with tinctures like strawberry-mint scrubs, green tea oils, and raspberry-lemongrass masks on display. Guests can pick and choose their scrubs and oils, or customize their own blend of botanicals—kind of like a juice bar, but (let's be honest) way more fun. Besides, when was the last time your juice bar spruced up your cuticles for you? Exactly. And that's one way of getting our five-a-day that we're sure to stick with.
