It was perfect timing for Connie Streatch, aka the Mud Lady. She and her staff took part in the Verona Festival Parade on Friday night as a way to invite the community to the grand opening of her new Verona business, The Mud House, which opened its doors to the public on August 8 with an official ribbon cutting ceremony.
Connie deals in mud, specifically Golden Moor Mud therapy products, which she sells and uses in a number of natural and organic health and beauty spa treatments.
The Golden Moor mud products are made from peat bog mud that comes from near Moose Creek near Cornwall, Ontario. Excavation of the mud began in 1994. Currently about 2000 tons a year are excavated, producing 89 products that are being sold in 13 countries. Golden Moor’s flagship product is a mud bath product that can be used in the privacy of your own home.
Present at the ceremony along with Connie were various corporate representatives and distributors of Golden Moor products and members of her staff, whom she calls “The Power of Mud Team”. Members of her team were on hand demonstrating mud facials on a number of interested clients.
Interested buyers had a chance to sample the pleasant-smelling products. Connie will not only be selling Golden Moor products but will be specializing in ION foot detox treatments, mud facials, wraps and mud baths and complete body detoxification at the Verona location.
She is a firm believer in the benefits of the Golden Moor products. “I have been using the products for six years and decided that, with the incredible results that I and others have been experiencing, I could base my business on services using these products."
Connie is from the Maritimes and came across the products through her brother and knew she could make a business based on the products and treatments. She visited her father here in Verona awhile back and fell in love with the house where her new business is located.
She is actively seeking an aesthetician to work along side her and one of her goals is to provide spa weekends to couples looking for a relaxing, rejuvenating get-away.
