Misty Willow’s magic, at your fingertips

teaIt never fails. The minute I walk into Peg Heinzelman’s store, Misty Willow Tea & Spa Essentials in Paw Paw, Mich., I go into relaxation mode. The tantalizing smells of exotic teas, imported soaps and precious essential oils … comfy chairs, beautiful gifts, shiny teapots and cups, Ikea-meets-Victoria décor and the inviting tea room in back … I just melt. And Peg isn’t just the proprietor of this gorgeous retail haven – she’s also a tea and aromatherapy expert who can set you up with just the right herbal blend for whatever ails you. And now, even if you don’t live anywhere near Paw Paw (yeah, that’s the town’s real name), Peg’s magic is available to you, too. The Back Place has started carrying Peg’s custom products and teas on our website. Some of my favorites include the Goat’s Milk Foot Soak (which my foot-massage clients love), Headache Relief Rollerball in its cool little roll-on applicator, and her soothing Muscle and Back Relief Formula. She knows essential-oil science, loves to research and experiment with new formulas and crafts custom products using all-natural ingredients: organic Nilotica shea butter, Ayurvedic herbs (including neem, tulsi and rose petal powder) and base oils derived from avocado, mango, sweet almond, grapeseed, emu and jojoba. Luscious, gentle yet powerful — her products are a joy to use. More on her teas later … In the meantime, if you’re ever in Southwest Michigan, head on over to Misty Willow Tea & Spa Essentials to experience Peg’s magic. Tell her Cathie sent you.
