Osmosis, located in the little town of Freestone, offers its guests a unique Cedar Enzyme Bath. The decidedly meditative and deeply detoxifying experience involves unclothed immersion in a toasty, composty, very enzymatic, and highly aromatic bed of wood chips.
Post mulch, don’t forget to grant yourself the absence of mind to amble awhile through the Japanese-style meditation garden behind the spa.
The former home of generations of Coastal Miwok and Southern Pomo people, hillsides here may sometimes offer intimations of their long attentive presence on the land.
When people don’t use plants they get scarce.
You must use them so they come up again.
All plants are like that. If they are not gathered from,
or talked to, or cared about, they’ll die.
