PATCH­WORK

Elle (Canada) - - Body -

Nat­u­ral Patches of Ver­mont ($7.50 each, at nat­u­ral patch­esofver­mont.com), at the Sense Spa at Rose­wood San Miguel de Al­lende in Mex­ico, at­tempt to pro­long that post­treat­ment sen­sa­tion. Th­ese small pieces of ad­he­sive cloth are sat­u­rated with es­sen­tial oils and ex­tra-vir­gin olive oil; spa ther­a­pists usu­ally ap­ply them to the body and face at the be­gin­ning of a treat­ment. Spa direc­tor Paulina Mer­cader says that the patches send pos­i­tive im­pulses to the brain as you in­hale them, and their ef­fect can last for up to 24 hours. They can be tai­lored to your needs, such as camomile for headaches and ten­sion or laven­der for re­pose.
