Produce!
Market Fresh scrubs and body wraps at Elaia Spa
Elaia takes a green approach to its signature service: Crafted from local produce sourced by Whidbey-based Simply Botanicals,
the seasonal scrubs include olive oil, fruits (blackberries or cranberries), herbs (heavenly lavender) and florals. The spicy-sweet scrub packs in vitamin C and antioxidants. $120/1 hour. Hyatt at Olive 8, downtown, 1635 Eighth Ave.; 206.676.4500; elaiaspa.com

Beauty from the kitchen, Flour 

 

Flour!
Swedana ayurvedic
massage at Vida Spa

During the blissful Swedana at Vida, we popped up like a curious groundhog when the masseuse began brushing with the “flour
exfoliate.”  The magical combo of cornmeal,  barley and chickpea flours removes oils, while also helping to tone. $215/120 minutes. Pan Pacific Hotel, South Lake Union, 900 Lenora St., Suite 220, 206.264.8432; vidaspas.com

Beauty from the kitchen, Mustard 

 

Mustard!
Rejuvenating Mustard Bath at Spa Nordstrom
We’re ketchup and relish gals, but mustard just spiked in our esteem after this soak. Ground mustard seed (a natural anti-inflammatory) is dissolved into a shoulder-deep hot tub to help relieve muscle aches and joint pain. A jetted shoulder and neck massage helps aid circulation. $60/30 minutes. Nordstrom, downtown, 500 Pine St., fifth floor; 206.628.1670; nordstrom.com
