12pm to 2 pm Lunch

Throughout the years, we have at times questioned whether or not to maintain buffet service at all meals. However, our experience, and also our deepest convictions, has shown that only the buffet has the ability to titillate and encourage visitors to discover new foods and a greater assortment of condiments. This formula has also been preferred because it allows each guest to create their own special dish, all in taking into account the activity they wish to do after their meal. At lunchtime, for example, one who is getting ready to receive a treatment will be happy to put together a light meal from the many choices available at the buffet. Conversely so, at the same meal, a visitor having just completed a session of aqua-aerobics and who will be going on a long hike in the afternoon, will be happy to refuel and all the while make more culinary discoveries! It is to preserve this flexibility and variety that the buffet has been maintained at breakfast and during the evening meal, even though table service is offered.

**This workshop is offered only in French; however please feel free to join us!** There are two types of species: those used in perfumery and cosmetics, said industrial grade, and those suitable for therapeutic use. The former are generally of lower quality; this is due to various factors, including the distillation process used which does not extract all of the active ingredients of the plant. This is the type of product that can be found in the usual commercial network. The essential oils of therapeutic quality are more difficult to find: it usually contact an aromatherapist for them.
