A complete pamper session at Spa Essensuals
For many walking into Spa Essensuals is an experience that lingers on for quite some time. The petite space is home to a spa cum salon where much of the interiors are a fine blend of minimalist walls, white-washed curtains and vintage furniture.
With your eyes on this reminder ‘Your Body, Mind & Soul Wellness Temple’, you come in and immediately find yourself engulfed in the intoxicating aroma of essential oils. A soothing tune humming in the backdrop, sink into the plush couch with a warm glass of organic tea in your hand.
Bringing balance, stimulating mood and mind; the tea and the au naturel products have an ethereal effect on you. Only two months since its opening in Chakrapath and it has already caught quite a lot of attention. Indulge in a day of relaxation and rejuvenation, let your senses take precedence and feel the surge of energy within you.
A day-cation just for you
Given the intensity of individual needs, Spa Essensuals finds a balance between comfort and the much-needed R&R you seek. They have three rooms dedicated for spa treatments, all crisp with dim lighting and salt rock décor, ensuing an aromatic and therapeutic experience.
Among their array of effective aromatherapy body massages, Relaxation is regarded as their most popular. Make a pick and let your therapist take it from there, slip into a slumber as she gently kneads through your knots.
Aromatherapy Facial Treatments is another experience they don’t compromise with. Hydrating, Restorative, Purifying or your Classic Standard, all stand the test of time, combatting pollution and more.
A one-stop day-cation at Spa Essensuals could also include a complete pamper session ranging from hair, skin and even nail care. Soon to come with a complete steam room and makeup room, the spa aims to please.
Lymphatic Drainage, Foot Reflexology and their Aromatherapy Back Treatment is something you could look forward to on your next visit. The Himalayan Singing Bowl is something that would intrigue most. Its soothing resonance against the handcrafted bowl is considerably synonymous with deep healing, inside and out.
Among the best
A wall to your right boasts a line of Essensuals’ products also available at their retail store in Lazimpat. Admire the lighting and relax while you take in the sights and sounds, their globally sourced essential oils, hair treatment oils, soap bars and skin care products are sworn by regulars.
This responsible and organic facial set – Grapefruit & Palmarosa Cleanser, Petitgrain & Walnut Face Scrub, Facial Mist/ Toner, Night Serum Oil, Argan Moisturiser, will surely make you feel better about what you’re putting on your face. An unadulterated and organic set for the jet setter traveller in you is also in the making.
Chic décor paired with an accommodating staff, reservations are requested but plenty walk-in guests have also given rave reviews. Transparent with regard to their independently manufactured products, Essensuals for a fact has grown with time. Given the intoxicating scent of wildflowers and aromatherapy oils, one just might pop in more than once a fortnight.
