Exquisite Aromatherapy Experience at The Iridium Spa
(Featured image above)
Aromatherapy has existed for thousands of years. The use of natural plant extracts and compounds that create aromatic essential oils have been well documented to boost health and well-being. That is why we love Iridium Spa’s Curated Aromatherapy program. It highlights the benefits of particular aromatherapy oils and allows guests to create their own diffuser and body scrubs based on their needs and preferences. Once the combinations have been created, the guest then is treated to the body scrub and personalized essential oil of their creation, with their choice of color, fragrance, and level of coarseness for exfoliation. After creating your own diffuser or body scrub, guests are indulged in an exquisite 45-minute relief massage and body revitalizing treatment is performed to the pleasant scent of their own handcrafted aromatherapy fragrance to soothe the body and heal the mind. The Curated Aromatherapy is exclusive to Iridium Spa at The St. Regis Macao, Cotai Central and priced at MOP $1,280 and MOP $780.
