Nirmal Herbal Spa has all that you need to pamper yourself over the weekend. Shalvi Mangaokar tells you why
Nirmal Herbal Spa is a natural way to pamper yourself. As soon as you enter the spa, you are encompassed in a calm environment. The slight fragrance of fresh herbs inside is soothing and pleasant.
Owner, Rupa Shetty, says, “The USP of our spa is that we believe in natural products. We make the products ourselves daily. There are no preservatives used.”
The spa offers different treatments. There are treatments for your hair, face, body and more. They even have a complete detoxification package (`7000-8000) where they give you full day service including treatment and food to help you detoxify.
We tried the saffron facial (`1650). The treatment started off with cleansing of the face which had a paste of grounded lentils mixed with curd/milk. Almonds, oats and wheat germ are then applied to make the skin glow. It gave the exact same effect of bleach, but naturally. After that came the honey pack to moisturise the skin followed by dry almond paste which acts as a scrub. They finished with a saffron paste that was loaded with cool, fresh cream.
Later you’re given a gentle and very good face and back massage by trained therapeutics which is really relaxing. This is followed by the sandalwood pack with rose petals which helps in getting the heat out of your body and you can actually feel your skin breathe. It’s pure bliss!
After the treatment, you feel refreshed and energised. However, one thing that took away from the experience was that I had to wash my own face between procedures.
But, who would have thought you could look radiant with stuff you can find in your kitchen?!
