Everything’s Coming Up Roses: Spa Treatments for National Rose Month

Celebrate June being National Rose Month by planting yourself at these spas where rose treatments are in full bloom. Not only are roses beautiful to look at and smell great, they are full of restorative properties to keep skin (no matter what type—sensitive, dry, etc.) looking youthful and hydrated. Rose oil is also said to possess calming effects; one study shows rose oil may even be useful in treating depression.
Check out these rosy spa services:
The Wrapped in Roses treatment at Bella Tosca Day Spa and Salon in San Diego comprises a body wrap using European rose mud and a rose oil-infused scalp massage. 50 mins, $130
