Introducing the beeswax massage at Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire
Treat and pamper skin with the new Beeutiful Body Candle Massage, an indulging experience incorporating 100 per cent natural beeswax from British honeybees, exclusively available at The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire.
The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire has teamed up with local bee keeper and founder of natural skincare line Beeutiful Carly Hooper to create a bespoke full-body treatment using one of the brand’s new body candles, made from natural beeswax found in local Hampshire beehives. Combined with soy, coconut oil and a unique blend of rose and frankincense essential oils, the warm melted candle wax is used as massage oil, providing all-over hydration, a sense of pure relaxation and sweet long-lasting scent.
The 60-minute therapy is described by Reka Seres, Director of Spa, as a “luxurious treat for the skin and senses” as the pool of warm, melted beeswax oil is massaged over the neck, back, arms and legs with gentle signature movements, delicately moisturising the skin and easing away pain and tension. The beeswax also provides anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties, thus rejuvenating, soothing the skin and helping improve circulation, and the sweet aroma of the essential oils calms the mind while leaving skin beautifully scented.
Beeutiful, based in Hampshire, features a range of skin products hand-made in Carly’s own home, made from honey and beeswax from her own Hampshire be-hives. All products are free from chemicals and preservatives, following the ethos of “if you can’t eat it, why put it on your skin.” Through this treatment, guests will be supporting the Friends of the Honeybee charity, established to research and help alleviate the honeybees’ declining numbers, as regular donations are made through sales.
