You’re wound tighter than a spring.
You’ve been working hard. Every time you sit down at your desk, you feel the crunchy knots in your shoulders. You know you need to relax. So you book a facial and massage.
And you relax. For exactly 90 minutes.
But then it’s peak hour on the way home, some random person cuts off up in the traffic, and you start to feel quick to react.
That’s the thing about salon treatments. They’re a treat. And we love them.
But to expect a single treatment to keep you calm in a chaotic world? That’s going to require a little more magic.
In a world where trying to find an hour for “me time” feels impossible, it’s time to bring rituals into your everyday life.
When taking two minutes to wash your face at the end of the day transforms from “I’m cleansing my face” to “I’m washing the day off,” you eliminate stress, prep for bed, and set yourself up for a night of restorative sleep.
Self care is more than taking a bath. It's a way of life.
Self care is how you handle everything life throws at you. Sure, you might not need to face Voldemort at Hogwarts for the ultimate showdown, but that meeting with your boss got your forehead vein bulging.
It’s about using little rituals to continually return to your centre regardless of what’s going on around you.
If life seems to knocking you for six, it’s time to upgrade how you handle it.
Because if there’s one thing we can’t control, it’s our external circumstances. But we can control how it affects us.
We can learn how to embody serenity, even in a chaotic world.
Self care is about building resilience, coping strategies, and spinning shit into gold.
It’s your new inner state of being. Your sanctuary. And it will change your life.
Katie, one of our founding members says ...
"Being a part of sanctuary has taught me so much in regards to wellbeing and my own emotional health. Jens wealth of knowledge on self care has been beautifully transformed into a hub of mindfulness. With gorgeous rituals and at home treatments, the sanctuary gives me time for me in a safe and comforting environment"
How to give yourself a spa treatment at home
Nice to meet you!
I'm Jennie and as an internationally qualified beauty therapist (CIDESCO) and founder of Mimosa Beauty, a multi-award winning, 100% landfill-free beauty salon, I’ve spent the last 17 years geeking out about how to bring more calm into your life.
And I’m not talking about that ten-night all-inclusive trip to the Maldives. I’m talking about moments where you find a little bit of peace and joy every single day.
In my quest to help women find healing through my holistic approach to skin and all over wellbeing, I realised there was never enough time during a treatment to talk about the little rituals available to them in their everyday life.
That’s how the Mimosa Sanctuary was born over 4 years ago.
Here’s how to bring your beauty treatments into your everyday life.
Bring the salon into your home with at-home beauty kits you can use from the comfort of your couch.
Learn simple strategies to self-massage & movement to ease tension, headaches, and knots on the fly.
Use rituals throughout your day to keep you calm, centred, and serene – even though you just walked out of a boardroom meeting and not the salon.
What is the sanctuary?
The Mimosa Sanctuary: A membership to bring inner calm in a chaotic world.
The Mimosa Sanctuary will take your hand and guide you through a self-care journey like no other. No baths. No fancy getaways. Simple soothing strategies that work on even the most frazzled.
The Mimosa Sanctuary is pyjama friendly. Unlike your spa treatments that require you to drive in peak hour or brave the public transport system, the Sanctuary is an online portal that you can access from the comfort of your own home.
The Mimosa Sanctuary will give you bite-sized, easily-implementable mind, body, and wellness strategies coupled with beauty treatments to give yourself a full body exhale.
It’s the difference between feeling stressed between massages and knowing how to relieve the tension in ten minutes at your desk.
When you become the custodian of your own self-care, here’s what happens:
You have rituals to draw on when you’re feeling uptight and anxious that you can implement at work, on the drive home, or curled up on the couch. Because self-care isn’t just about taking a bath.
You can pick and choose the seven different types of rest that your mind & body are craving. Because resting isn’t just about napping.
You cultivate an attitude of gratitude and start to see the unreal beauty and magic that is available to you. Because beauty is more than skin deep. It’s everywhere.
When you show up every day from this space, your life becomes infinitely more beautiful.
Here’s How The Sanctuary Supports You:
- At home kits every other month with a library of applications delivered directly to your door.
- Monthly Zoom sessions that rotate between check-ins, rituals, and using our at home kits
- Monthly Q+A to ask your burning questions like how to incorporate new products into your at-home beauty routine
- Weekly self-care content designed to help you take care of yourself outside of the salon and into your daily life. From skin science to your senses, rest to respect, movement to your environment, and everything in between.
- 20% off all retail in the Mimosa Beauty salon & online shop

What Others Are Saying About The Sanctuary:
"Thank you again for showing us that in today's world, no matter what age you are those few moments each day of self-care are beneficial to us being our best self.
The Mimosa Sanctuary has allowed me to have some time to think about myself, showing me how to focus on my own self-care. The breathing ritual has helped calm my anxiety and the scalp pulling has been fantastic for my 10-year-old son and has helped manage his anxiety.
I have been able to teach him your rituals so he can also relax and unwind. We now have family self-care time and I love passing on your knowledge!" – Louise
Joanna, one of our founding members says ...
"As a busy professional, I understand all too well the need for regular moments of self-care. Carving out the time in an already busy schedule however can be a challenge. Enter the Mimosa Sanctuary to the rescue.
Clearly laid out and as beautiful as an in-person spa, the Sanctuary and it’s accompanying app mean that I can find and indulge in just what I need, even when time is tight.
Whether it’s a moment of calm, connecting with my senses or cherishing the skin I’m in, there are downloadable guides and videos to support me.
Do yourself a favour and get your Sanctuary membership now. You won’t regret it."

Who is the sanctuary for?
The sanctuary is for anyone who is looking to take their regular spa treatments out of the salon and into their home, and everyday life. It’s for busy people who don’t have a lot of time to commit to self-care, but who know that without it, feel like they’re one step away from burnout.
How do the Zoom sessions work?
Every second month, our Zoom sessions will rotate in focus. On the months that you receive your at home self care kit, our Zoom session will be focussed on giving yourself your at home treatment.
The months in between are recap content, education sessions and check in months.
I’ve intentionally designed the membership to rotate through these Zoom sessions every two months to give you space.
Is there a Facebook Group?
The sanctuary is a solo journey to self-care, which means there’s no Facebook Group. You are officially released from any expectation to show up and instead, get to reflect inwards. We do have a whatapp community where I share updates, zoom links, affirmation cards and much much more.
I barely have enough time to drink my coffee before it goes cold. How do I make time for this?
That’s the beauty of the sanctuary. It’s designed to fit in and around your life. With bite-sized weekly content drops, you can learn a new breathing technique to keep you calm on your commute to work, use it by lunchtime, and transform your day today.
This is not about sitting down with reams of paper. This is about remembering the pressure point technique that Jennie taught you and applying it at your desk.
What if I can’t make the Zoom calls?
All Zoom sessions are recorded and uploaded into the library for you to watch when you’ve got the time.
Will you have the camera on me when I join Zoom?
Nope. The beauty of the sanctuary is it’s a safe and private space. Our members love to rock up in the pyjamas, freshly showered, under the covers with cups of tea. You get to be your unmasked self here, so show up as you are and soak in the serenity.
Do I get to choose the at home kits?
Each at home kit is selected by me and the same for everyone to use in the sanctuary. If you’d like additional at home kits, you can purchase them here at 20% off with your membership.
Are there any refunds?
There are no refunds, however, if you’re like to test out the membership,I recommend signing up for the monthly membership. This lets you come on in, try out the membership, and cancel anytime.
