Staying Healthy through the Seasons: Winter in Santa Fe

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Santa Fe is a winter wonderland, but high altitude sun and snow in the Land of Enchantment may have less than enchanting effects on your body. The following easy-to-follow tips from Spa Sage at La Posada de Santa Fe  will keep you warm and well all season long.

Stay Warm and Boost Your Immune System

Keep your immune system at it’s highest level to aid the body in fighting off colds and flus. Avoid stress, protect yourself from the elements, get proper rest, eat nutritionally sound and follow the tips below.

Use in the Bath or Shower: Essential oils of Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Peppermint and Tea Tree enhance circulation, accelerate immune response and provide relief from sinus congestion. Sprinkle 10 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil on a clean sponge and place on the shower floor to create your own therapeutic steam bath. Breathe in for respiratory relief and to boost immunity. Careful not to slip!

Immune Boost Salt Glow: Mix 6 Tbsp. salt, 6 drops of Eucalyptus Oil, 4 drops of Peppermint Oil, 2 Tbsp. of Olive or Safflower Oil, scrub your way to health and rinse off. An aid to prevent or reduce the effects of colds and flu and associated aches and pains.

Daily Immune Boost: Use the following essential oils on the body or use products containing them: Tea Tree, Eucalyptus and Lemon Grass. Apply this blend to your body after bathing and take some time for yourself to relax and give your body time to regenerate.

Night Time Warmer:  Place a warmed herbal pack under the covers before getting into bed for instant warmth and relaxation. Also assists circulation and giving immune system a boost.

Tea anytime: Create warmth from the inside out with a cup of Immune Boost Tea – this is useful during the winter months to reduce congestion and increase circulation.

1 heaping tablespoon fresh ginger in chunks / ½ lemon / dash of turmeric and cayenne
Blend all in 1 cup heated water / let steep and add agave or honey to sweeten – Enjoy!

Swim, Soak and Steam
What could be more indulgent and invigorating than a swim or soak in an outdoor heated saline pool or whirlpool in winter?  Spa Sage at La Posada de Santa Fe offers both. Relax in the brisk mountain air as the steam arises around you and warm up afterwards in an aroma steam room.  Spa facilities are available to guests staying at the resort as well as outside visitors with spa treatments or those who purchase day passes.  Click here for complete details.

Our Santa Fe Hotel’s Artful History

Sunday, March 22nd, 2015

For over a hundred years, La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa has been one of the most historic Santa Fe hotels. As the city grows and changes, so has La Posada. Our entwined histories have made us Santa Fe’s signature resort.

In 1607, the history of Santa Fe began when New Mexico’s governor, Don Pedro de Peralta, founded the city near the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. He originally named the city, “La Villa Real de la Santa Fe de San Francisco de Asís,” or The Royal Town of the Holy Faith of Saint Francis of Assisi. In 1610, Santa Fe became New Mexico’s capital, making it the oldest state capital in the United States.

Immigrants flocked to the West and New Mexico in the 19th century. Along with them came Abraham Staab and his wife, Julia. In 1882, he built a beautiful three-story brick mansion. The residence was constructed in the French Second Empire-style, and it was decorated with lavish European furnishings.

Later on, in the 1930s, R.H. and Eulalia Nason became the estate’s owners, and they transformed the property into the marquee hotel in Santa Fe.  They constructed a series of Pueblo Revival-style adobe casitas around the existing mansion. They dubbed their new Santa Fe hotel “La Posada,” which means “inn” or “resting place” in Spanish. As La Posada spearheaded the Pueblo Revival style, the city of Santa Fe followed suit. In the 1920s and 1930s, architects and artists developed a unique regional identity by drawing inspiration from the local Native American culture. Pueblo style architecture imitates the design of traditional adobe construction, but with more modern materials, such as brick or concrete.

In the following years, our Santa Fe resort became a popular place to be for the arts community.  An annual summer arts school drew many guests, who were leaders in the Santa Fe arts movement. La Posada truly became “The Art Hotel of Santa Fe.”

Our rich heritage makes La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa Santa Fe’s most historic resort.  Nowadays, we’ve renovated the estate with a relaxing spa and a flavorful restaurants. Our southwestern ambiance means that there is no better resort in Santa Fe to absorb the rich
environment of the West.
