Celebrate Earth Day With An Organic Spa Treatment
By Marissa Hicken |
In honor of Earth Day, Auberge du Soleil, one of California wine country's most luxurious country inns will be celebrating its green initiatives throughout April. Included in this celebration is an organic spa treatment offered at the The Auberge spa. The 7,000 square foot space overlooking the Napa Valley is an extension of the inn, built exclusively for the inn's guests.
Auberge du Soleil made a pledge to improve the inn's sustainability standards several years ago with a program they call Responsible Luxury. Auberge du Soleil is the first hotel in the Napa Valley certified by the Bay Area Green Business Program and one of the original partners of the Green Spa Network. Committed to living in harmony with the environment and dedicated to preserving and protecting the Napa Valley terroir and culture, Auberge du Soleil is offering a spa special called Earth Bliss in honor of Earth Day.
Earth Bliss is a two-hour treatment that centers on elements of the earth: Calistoga mud and river stones. The treatment begins with a volcanic grey mud mask. While your body is wrapped you will receive a short scalp and foot massage as cool compresses infused with essential oils are applied to your face. A luxurious private outdoor garden shower awaits you to wash off the mud. A warm and relaxing 90-minute sacred stone massage follows the shower. The two-hour experience is the completed with a brief balancing of your charkras to connect you with nature. What better way to celebrate Earth Day than to connect with nature?
