Get petal-soft skin with these botanical spa treatments

Nutritious botanical feed skin this spring.


According to GardeningChannel.com, almost 60 percent of fresh-cut flowers grown in the U.S. come from California. Botanicals have the power to heal, renew, and nurture skin. They also possess nutrients that regenerate the epidermis.
