Vermont’s Essex Resort and Spa brings the Freshness of The Farm to Your Skin
You’ve heard the expression “Farm-to-Table”, well Vermont’s Essex Resort and Spa has taken the farm to another level – your skin. Located at the foot of the Green Mountains with a magnificent view of Lake Champlain Valley, the resort sits on 18 sprawling acres.
Vermont is noted for skiing, boating, shopping, hiking and boating; however, the Essex Culinary Resort and Spa has a full-service spa with treatments delectable enough to eat, and I mean that literally. The names of the treatments provide a clue to the ingredients. If you are a beer lover, you should try BODY BREW. Your choice of a local brew mixed with their house scrub of malted barley, salt, honey and citrus which sloughs away rough and tired skin resulting in a clearer softer skin. The final touch is a local hop oil massage and yes, you can drink the beer as well. If that does not appeal to you how about WINE DOWN. You immerse in a cranberry-orange soak rich in almond oil, followed by a Resveratrol Serum wrap extracted from wine grapes, finishing up with Agave Nectar Massage and wine is complementary.
Not into alcoholic treatments? Then we suggest you try the Honey Lavender Escape, which is a farm-to-skin journey. Cocooned after an application of Midnight Honey followed by a lavender and body milk massage, will send you into Nirvana. The Coffee Almond scrub topped with an Almond Shea Butter massage is also on the menu. These are just a few of the spectacular body treatments available at the spa. According to Spa Director, Whitney Olado, they will create the perfect treatment for you.
Just think about a winter weekend snuggling by the fire tasting the exquisite culinary delights prepared by a team of chefs at either of their two restaurant choices. Add in a perfect spa day and you will not want to leave this extraordinary resort. If your interest lay in the culinary, the resort offers the popular Cooking Academy for a fun hands-on culinary experience.
The spa is open to the public; therefore, we suggest you secure your appointments at the time of your reservation. If you are not a spa person, there is much to do at this magnificent resort. Just tell them Wickedgoodtraveltips.com sent you and they will make sure your trip will be memorable.
