Spas Source Local Plants and Flowers For Custom Spa Treatments

In a recent article by Nicole Altavilla  for American Spa Magazine, Nicole shared some of the personalized treatments spas are creating from locally sourced plants and flowers. 

According to the article, spas like Spa Matilda in San Miguel de Allende, Floral Compresses
Treatment include the application of warm compresses (Poultice) filled with locally grown dried flowers, such as lavender, orange blossom, and rose.

At Spa Heaven at Borgo Santo Pietro (Tuscany, Italy), "Fresh flowers are picked daily from the spa gardens and placed throughout the spa. What’s more, the spa boasts an alfresco canopied therapy suite next to the garden for guests to enjoy the intoxicating scents of jasmine, rose, and other flowers while they are pampered. Also, some of the spa’s treatments feature herbs and flowers handpicked before the treatment, such as the Borgo’s Nature’s Bounty ($287, 2 hours), which features a basil, rosemary, and sea salt body scrub; a massage; and a facial that includes a honey and lavender mask."

Aspira The Spa at The Osthoff Resort (Elkhart Lake, WI) offers the Wild Chamomile and Lavender Body Masque ($130, 50 minutes). Treatment includes an application of the spa’s signature body mask using wild chamomile and lavender, grown and harvested from the resort’s own Osthoff Gardens.

Are you interested in offering herbal based treatments but don't have a fresh field of botanicals to source from, Pure Spa Direct has a rich selection of bulk herbs and poultices for creating your own, bespoke treatment compresses for spa services.

I adore the idea of creating a therapeutic service from indigenous flora, this is definitely the kind of regional and bespoke treatment that my husband and I look for on the menu when "spa-ing" in different parts.

  • Simply Mix the Cocoa powder with coconut oil, and slightly heat until it's all blended together. 
  • Add honey, and apply as a mask during your facial services.
  • Leave on your client's face for ten to twenty minutes.
  • Rinse with warm water and a towel or sponge.
