Every newlywed needs  to get away and relax and if your plan is to keep it local then consider Oban Inn Spa Restaurant.

Nestled in the heart of the historic Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, a few minutes walk to all theatres and attractions, the Oban Inn is a historic property officially designated as a significant heritage resource. The Town’s first and original country inn overlooks Lake Ontario and the oldest golf course in Canada. This landmark property was built as a private home in 1824 by Captain Duncan Milloy of Oban, Scotland. For the love of frends and food, Captain Milloy opened his home to all his guests. Fine hospitality began at The Oban Inn and guests form all over the world return generation after generation. A devastating fire on Christmas Day 1992 completely destroyed the Inn, leaving only the foundation. Re-created as an exact replica of the former Inn, The Oban Inn again opened its doors in November 1993, proudly welcoming guests back to its grace and understated charm.

In 2006, the Inn underwent a significant transformation while at the same time maintaining the integrity of its long tradition of a warm and welcome hospitality. Today, the Inn features 26 well-appointed guestrooms, the gastronomic restaurant, and a tranquil, personalized, full service OSpa – a unique facility dedicated to the health, well-being and vitality of our guests where the philosophy and décor are in harmony, forming a peaceful mood of Sun, Moon, Earth and Water. Our state-of-the-art exercise room has a view of our lush, mature gardens, outdoor hot spring/spa and infinity lap pool.

Honey and avocado mask for normal-to-skin:

Eggs and avocado blend beautifully together, and they are both highly moisturizing-avocadoes have a 20 percent fat content. What’s more, this recipe uses mayonnaise, which is well known to tone and smooth skin. In an emergency, you can soon it straight from the jar onto your face.

1 egg

1/2 avocado (peeled, with the stone taken out)

1 tsp organic mayonnaise

1 tsp honey

1 tsp baking soda

2 drops orange essential oil

Purre the avocado, egg and mayonnaise in a blender, then add the honey and remaining ingredients. Alternatively, you can beat it by hand, adding the baking soda last.

This mask needs to be used all at once, so apply any extra mixture to the chest and neck areas.
