Lavender Milk and Honey Cocoon
06/14/2015
By: Lissa Coffey

We’ve all heard about how relaxing the fragrance of lavender can be. But did you know that lavender is also super good for your skin?  It’s true! Lavender has natural anti-inflammatory properties that help to reduce itching, swelling, and redness in the skin. That, combined with the aromatherapy that helps to lower both heart rate and blood pressure makes lavender a stellar ingredient in beauty treatments.

Honey is another beauty star. Honey has natural antibacterial properties that are great for both the treatment and prevention of acne. Honey is also high in antioxidants that help to slow down the effects of aging skin. Honey is both moisturizing and soothing to the skin, giving the skin a beautiful glow. In addition, honey is clarifying, opening up the pores of the skin making it easy to unclog them.

So how about combining the benefits of lavender with honey to make an out-of-this-world spa experience? That’s what The Four Seasons Spain Westlake Village has done – and the results are magnificent. I decided to check it out, and can personally say that their “Lavender Milk and Honey Cocoon” is delightfully decadent! It’s a comprehensive whole-body treatment to restores that healthy glow.

First of all, the Four Seasons Spa itself is absolutely gorgeous. Every amenity, five star service, and luxuries no one else has thought of. The minute you walk through the door you just want to stay and enjoy every little detail of the décor. There are exotic orchids, marble floors, a eucalyptus infused steam room, fireplaces, and private spa tubs to set the stage for relaxation.

The first stage of the Lavender Milk and Honey Cocoon treatment is a body buff. A mix of whole-grain and organic-oil with lavender is applied liberally to the body.  This buff increases the skin’s vibrancy and stimulates the circulation.  The mind starts to settle and find peace.

After a nice rinse in the private shower, you pat yourself dry with a heated towel, and return to the table for the cocoon. A velvety blend of pure honey and warm lavender cream moisturizes and nourishes the skin head to toe. It feels absolutely awesome. Then you’re gently wrapped in a heated cocoon so that the skin can better absorb the much-needed moisture, and renew its elasticity. While you are tucked in and cozy, your neck and feet are massaged, and you relax and breathe in the beautiful fragrance of lavender.

Feeling serene you make your way back to the shower, where it’s easy to rinse off as most of the honey and cream has been absorbed by the skin. There’s no stickiness, just silky smooth, hydrated skin.

As if that’s not enough, the third round of the treatment commences with a lavish full-body massage using pure lavender and lavender cream. Mind, body and spirit all experience tranquility. You arise, like a butterfly, floating effortlessly through the spa, renewed, refreshed, revitalized!

Such a wonderful experience – I’m still floating, enjoying the effects of the amazing Lavender Milk and Honey Cocoon. I can’t wait to go back for more!
