AS PART OF THE CELEBRATION of the wonderful days of summer, Spa Cenvaree is offering an ‘Oriental Jasmine’ treatment, designed to enchant the senses with the intoxicatingly sweet and invigorating aroma of Jasmine.
Jasmine is a fascinating plant as the flowering takes place in summer and/or spring. The height of the fragrance of the Jasmine is at night after the sun has set. The flower buds are also more fragrant than the flowers.
Spa Cenvaree has chosen to highlight this ingredient in its summer treatment menu because of the quality benefits that Jasmine can offer – the essential oil extracted from the flower has calming qualities that assist in relaxation.
Featuring potent local plant essences, this specially-created two-hour treatment begins with a ‘foot cleansing ritual’ to set the stage for the relaxing interlude to follow. Then a jasmine-scented salt body scrub procedure followed by a jasmine-infused body mask and wrap, made with Burmese thanaka and Thai white Clay, mixed with aloe vera extract, rice powder and jasmine essential oil, ideal for softening skin, and leaving it smooth and refreshed.
After a shower, a 15-minute aromatic ‘Oriental’ oil scalp massage along with a jasmine tea and a traditional Thai dessert. Each guest gets to take home a gift – the SPA Cenvaree’s own exclusive ‘White Jasmine’ gift-set that includes shower gel and body lotion.
Tara Hanrahan, group director of spa at Centara Hotels & Resorts, notes that “jasmine oil contains active anti-microbial substances such as benzoic acid and benzyl benzoate, making it a potent germicide, and it’s also been known to have a positive effect on the respiratory system, as well as fade scars and skin hyper-pigmentation.”
This aromatic and therapeutic package will be available at SPA Cenvaree until Aug. 31, 2016, and is priced at 2,950 THB per person (saving up to 25%) or 5,400 THB per couple (saving up to 30%) and includes one complementary spa gift set.
