Holiday-Scented Spa Treatments

If the wintry scents of the holidays help put you in the spirit, treat yourself to one of these festively fragrant spa treatments.

Scent: Cinnamon

SpaTerre’s Cinnamon Splendor Manicure and Pedicure ($75 mani; $95 pedi) are red-hot treatments for holiday relaxation. As the scent of hot brewed cider fills the room, hands or feet are soaked in a bubbling brew of vitamin E and sweet almond oil, followed by a sea salt exfoliation that includes a potpourri of clove, honey, and spice notes, and capped with a cinnamon-twist massage with antioxidant-rich Red Hot Shandy body oil.

Scent: Cranberry

Get red-carpet ready this season with a Cranberry Pomegranate Nourishing Facial (50 minutes, $140; 75 minutes, $185) at Stillwater Spa in the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa. It features an apple stem cell peel and replenishes dehydrated skin with a cranberry-pomegranate mask, while plant-based active ingredients stimulate healing and boost collagen.

Decompress from the hustle and bustle at The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club spa with a Detox Herbal Massage ($75 for 25 minutes; $180 for 80 minutes), featuring a blend of purifying evergreen oils. Grand fir needle oil is known to help with balancing emotions and improving mental clarity, pine needle oil serves as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic to reduce pain and stiffness, and juniper berry oil is said to help boost circulation.

Combat the impact holiday stress can have on your skin with a Holiday Recovery Facial at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples ($165 for 50 minutes; $215 for 80 minutes). Relax as an esthetician gently massages your skin with frankincense and other serums, which are rich in antioxidants to stimulate circulation and cellular renewal. A concentrated firming mask is then applied to nourish skin and boost collagen and elastin production—revealing a more youthful visage.

Scent: Cornucopia of Fruit

Purely You Spa’s Let It Glow body scrub ($125 for 50 minutes) starts with cinnamon aromatherapy and a customized exfoliation using a holiday combination of organic ingredients: cinnamon, cranberry, pomegranate, pears, or green apples. The scrub is removed with warm towels, and cinnamon and paprika body lotion is applied to hydrate the skin. The treatment also includes Bio Mat Therapy to stimulate circulation and relieve stress.
