I am a native Rhode Islander (go West Warwick Wizards!) and I love all things about the ocean and New England. It’s no wonder I had such amazing skin when I was younger since I spent so many days swimming in the ocean (err looking at boys.) I’m planning at some point to make my way to Stone House in Little Compton RI some time in 2011 (it’s on my I really want to go here list) simply because I have heard so many people rave about their spa. What could be more perfect than staying in a historic building in Newport County to take in all that my quaint home state has to offer?
Since it’s the holidays, here are some Peppermint spa treatments that Stone House has on their menu:
Peppermint Pedicure $45
Cooling Peppermint Pedicure completely natural and intensely nourishing and hydrating. This pedicure utilizes natural peppermint essential oil and organic sugar.
Peppermint Massage $75
Fresh, cool, and lively, Peppermint massage is wonderful for the circulation, this sparkling scent invigorates the mind, increases memory and concentration, and relieves fatigue. You will be massaged with super-absorbable exotic oils and peppermint essential oil.Â
Peppermint Body Scrub $90
Peppermint Body Scrub blends invigorating and refreshing peppermint oil with a high concentration of essential oils to moisturize and nourish the skin. This scrub will refine and polish the skin’s surface, leaving it smoother, softer, and clearer, with a healthy natural glow. Body Scrubs are some of the best skin remedies around, as they exfoliate, moisturize and pamper your skin.
If you have a cold like I do right now, I bet these peppermint spa treatments would do the trick to open your sinuses and let you breathe easier.
However all the rage seems to be focused on one spa treatment in particular at Stone House, and that is their Farmaesthetics Hot Toddy Body Scrub with Calendula Remedy Wrap: Whole organic herbs and citrus body oils cleanse your entire system. Organic orange peels, cornmeal, clove and cinnamon are applied to the body in a wet room to open pores and sinuses, indirectly stimulating the limbic system and promoting circulation followed by a luscious calendula cream wrap to thoroughly replenish a depleted complexionâ€¦tip to toe. I so need this.
