Flower Power

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.

Beautify your complexion with Spa Esmeralda’s Floral Ritual For Couples. This treatment offers a second life to tired feet. You and your partner drift away as your feet are cleansed and massaged with healing botanicals. This precedes a relaxing body massage.
