Cannabidiols are a composite of more than 113 compounds found in the Cannabis species that perform specific functions in the Endo-Cannabinoid system.  By creating a product that activates the plant molecules to find the endo-receptors on the cells of the skin, in order to go to work and "make improvements" by healing unhealthy cells and regenerating skin cells, we have provided the fast track to healthy, glowing skin anyone can feel good about! When you add to the idea that our products are naturally sourced from a plant known to produce 4 times the oxygen of any other plant on the planet, and the only plant that will remediate toxins from the soil, it makes absolute sense that Cannatera is a groundbreaking product that not only will make the consumer feel good about their face, but the environment and planet their purchases will impact in the bigger picture of growing more hemp, to produce more oil, to manufacture more natural skincare products like Cannatera.

Our Story: As spa owners, we want what’s best for our customers. Over the years, our guests would come to us to treat skin conditions they’d struggled with for a long time. And we noticed a pattern. When we replaced harsh and irritating chemicals with simple plant-based ingredients in their skincare routines, their skin would improve and become vibrant. We made a commitment to create only clean, natural skincare with organic ingredients for our spa, our families, and ourselves. Today we offer our products to you: skincare you can trust to give you PURE. SIMPLE. BEAUTY.

Our Mission: Your skin is complicated, but your skincare shouldn’t be. At JL ESSENCIALS, we believe that beauty products don’t need to be filled with harsh chemicals to be effective; they should instead be simple, gentle, and safe. So we focus on restoring and maintaining the natural balance of healthy skin, blending pure botanicals and organic ingredients into products that leave skin feeling and looking healthy and vitalized. We want you to trust your skincare, love your skin, and feel nurtured by nature.

Love of the outdoors (skiing, hiking, snowboarding etc.) was the inspiration for Lacuna Botanicals.  Whether in the city or in the mountains, our bodies take a beating every day. From sore joints to dry skin and everything in between, we felt there had to be a natural alternative to prescription opiates and silicon/petroleum-based skin care products that have flooded the market. Like many people, we’ve tried numerous products, with most never quite getting the job done. In response, we started Lacuna Botanicals with the mission of creating the best all natural products we could. We meticulously source the highest quality ingredients locally and from around the world.  

Working with massage therapists in Colorado’s top ski destinations and spas, we developed the world’s first purpose-built CBD infused massage cream, Deep Tissue in 2015.   Rather than just a simple lotion with CBD in it, Deep Tissue was designed from the ground up as a massage powerhouse with over a dozen pain-relieving essential oils, plant terpenes and CBD from finest quality Colorado hemp we grow ourselves.  Since 2015, we’ve developed a complete portfolio of the industry’s most innovative premium CBD spa products and are rapidly expanding to work with spas across the country.   Give our products a try, we’re sure you’ll love them!

When Tara Grodjesk started her company years ago, her dream was to offer the purest, most health-sustaining products possible. She named the company TARA, not after her personally, but in celebration of Tara the Goddess, who came to earth as a star. As the first physical manifestation of the Divine Mother, she represents the universal feminine energy that resides in each of us. The essence of Tara is nourishing, compassionate, inclusive and embracing - all the qualities she hoped the company would reflect. What better name to invoke the timeless wisdom of the Divine Mother and to honor the divinity that resides within?

For more than 25 years, TARA's integrated wellness solutions and authentic products have been offered in the finest spas. And while Grodjesk has been known as the "Ayurveda Lady" for her role in introducing Ayurvedic healing traditions to the American spa industry, the company has evolved into so much more than that today. In addition to it's celebrated Ayurvedic treatments, TARA Spa Therapy continues to break new ground in holistic healing modalities. It is always evolving with new TARA products and services, but some things will never change: its commitment to offering products of unparalleled quality, its attention to beautiful, eco-positive packaging, and the integrity with which it approaches the business and its customers. Now, with its new Living Wellness initiative, there has never been a better time to integrate TARA products into your wellness lifestyle.
