A Guide to Self Care & Wellness in Cornwall, Ontario


I have been SO excited to write this new blog post, not just for our customers and followers but for our community in Cornwall, Ontario and beyond. So grab a cup of tea and comfy place for reading while we learn more about wellness & self care!

Lets start with a question, what does self care mean to you? What is your definition of 'optimal health'?

I'd like you to actually pause. Think about this for a moment.

Rooted Love Flowers Cornwall Self Care and Wellness Blog Post

When most of us think 'self care' we think, Spa days, lighting some Sage to release negative energies or simply enjoying  some 'me time'. In reality, I think it is safe to say we most of us could use a boost when it comes to practicing self care and taking time to put ourselves first, on a regular basis. Am I right?


My intention for this blog post is to highlight the experts within our community and discuss what wellness and self care mean to them, highlighting self care habits and tools we can add to our daily routine. By the end of this blog post, I hope you step away feeling more equipped to practice regular self care.

When it comes to wellness I thought of Epione Health. I follow them on instagram and they are always highlighting simple ways to incorporate wellness into our daily routine.
Recently I had a chance to interview the team at Epione Health and when asked for their definition of self care, health and wellness they said "Health means thriving, being able to do whatever your heart desires while feeling good in your body. Your health shouldn’t be holding you back."

They went on to explain the 4 foundations of Health & Wellness:

  1.  Stress management and mental health.
  2.  Exercise.
  3. Targeted nutrition.
  4.  A healthy environment (which includes a health community!).
WOW! There they are, these 4 foundations to optimal health, straight from the experts. So now that we have a clear perspective on how we can tackle our self care routine, lets take a look at some incredible resources within our community.

Epione Health, Cornwall's newest Naturopath clinic opening soon! 

The team at Epione Health has a clear vision for their new health clinic here in Cornwall. "As part of this ever growing city, we want to place the importance on our individual health; without it, how else can we achieve a community and thrive within it?

Part of Epione Health's mission is to offer progressive, personalized care with compassion and bring the community together by free educational talks, collaborating with local farms to help provide affordable quality nutrition and working with local businesses to show our community that health doesn't have to be hard." You can follow Epione Health online or on social media.

The words that resound with me the most are"Health doesn't have to be hard". I couldn't agree more! With the right tools, resources and planning we can all get into the habit of practicing self care on a regular basis!

Now is a great time to take a quick break from reading. Stand up, stretch and light a floral smudge stick if you have one on hand. Light up some Sage or Palo Santo, clear your space of any negative energies and read on to learn about some incredible local businesses here in Cornwall, Ontario!

When it comes to mental health and stress reduction, Rooted Love is a great local option with some helpful tools such as fresh flowers on weekends, a flower subscription service (re-launching soon) and Floral Smudge Sticks. 

Enjoying fresh flowers or lighting a Floral Smudge Stick like Sage or Palo Santo is a great way to help clear out negative energy in your space. This practice helps to invite positive vibes, good intentions and an overall sense of well being.
