A new hotel in Hurworth, England, is offering sweetpea and rose facials, a skin treatment which features flowers in its ingredients.
According to DailyMail.Co.Uk, the hotel, known as Rockliffe Hall, offers a sweetpea and rose facial treatment in their spa. The fragrant cream is comprised of organic flowers - the rose petals are plucked from the foothills of the Himalayas.
The estate, which spans over 375 acres, features many exotic tress and flowers. The plant life at the facility was collected by the Blackhouse family, who were the previous owners of the land and renowned botanists, the news source reports.
Those who take part in the spa treatment will first be treated to a warm foot soak and scrub, followed by the facial itself, which is administered in a room lit with candles.
Several masks and oils are rubbed into the skin, including the floral facial itself. A therapist at Rockliffe Hall told the news outlet that the flower extracts are intended to revive and relax clients, leaving their skin smooth and sweet-smelling.
Research published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry shows that pleasant scents can help one relax. A pleasurable fragrance, such as those found in roses and sweetpeas, may relieve tension from stress. When purchasing bouquets for loved ones, keep the therapeutic value of the blooms you choose in mind.
