When it comes to what goes in, on, and around our Pacific Northwest bodies, we here tend to be of a farm-to-table disposition. Luckily, two area spas are getting in on the all-natural game with treatment offerings featuring organic and chemical-free ingredients that are both eco- and skincare-friendly (and effective, to boot).
Pack up your lover, your girlfriends, your mom and make the quick 45-minute jaunt east to Salish Lodge and Spa at Snoqualmie Falls for natural spa services next to one of our natural wonders.
Salish has long been in on the ecotreatments, offering mani pedis using honey from their own hives and body scrubs made of garden herbs. New to the lineup: a menu featuring holistic products from Australian skincare company Sodashi. The brand focuses on anti-aging formulas concocted without any synthetic chemicals, fragrances, or preservatives, and bases its products and therapies in traditional Ayurvedic principles.
The spa, the only one West of the Mississippi to carry the line, incorporates Sodashi products into a full range of services, from head wraps to energizing massages. We suggest the luxurious Age-Defying Eye Treatment, a peepers-focused facial that uses petite rose quartz crystals and a mineral-rich mask to eliminate fine lines, dark circles, and eye tension.
A day at the Four Seasons Spa is the height of downtown luxury. The third-floor space houses eight cozy treatment rooms, and day-spa packages come with access to the hotel's well-equipped gym and rooftop pool overlooking the waterfront and Great Wheel. Plus extra cushy robes.
Adding to the indulgence and exclusivity, the spa is one of only a few centers globally to carry environmentally friendly and all-organic line Amala. The German-based brand was founded on the basis that nature holds all the ingredients for healthy, radiant skin. Each product is formulated with sustainably sourced plants from fair trade farmers, distilled down to their most potent and effective forms. Everything down to the packaging and manufacturing processes is conscious and ecofriendly, not to mention the creams, masks, and moisturizers leave your skin smelling amazing.
Four Seasons' specialists tailor facials and treatments to each client, so you can go completely Amala-zen or mix in products from other proven house lines.
