Spa Botanica Jasmine Foot Soak

Spa Botanica Jasmine Foot Soak

While traveling in Asia 5 months out of every year for the past few years I have visited the Top 25 Spas in Bali and 5 star destinations spas all over South East Asia.  As a spa trainer for 5 stars such as Ritz Carlton, Radisson, Hyatt and Shangri La Nepal along with the satisfaction of training I get an inside look at successful spa operations and collect some “spa gems” along the way to include in our Signature Spa Series here at Body Wisdom European Spa, Premier Spa Indonesia and Best of Asia Spa.

A sensuous foot bath is pretty much a given on any spa menu in South East Asia.  A delightful way to begin your treatment offered in a spirit of reverence and service.  Below is a foot bath ritual from Spa Botanica in Bangkok one of their many locations all over SE Asia.

2 cups boiling water
1 cup dried Jasmine Flowers (can order online if you look around)
3-5 drops Sandalwood essential oil

Pour the hot water into a large foot bath basin big enough to fit both feet.  Add the Jasmine flowers and salt and let steep for 5-10 minutes.  Add the sandalwood essences and enough hot or cool water (create the perfect temperature) to cover the client’s or your feet.  Scrub the feet with some fresh salt crystals and soak for 10-15 minutes.
