Finally, spoil your cranial surface area with revitalizing scalp treatments ($49), including a hot-oil procedure to give hair a voluminous and healthy look without daily conditioning, and a head massage to soothe the gremlins hammering on the walls of your brain-basement.

Elixir Organic Spa
According to Lynn Shulman, founder of Elixir Organic Spa, "Our products are so pure, you can literally eat them." Aside from slathering the spa’s food-grade products on her face and morning toast, Shulman makes a concerted effort to bust myths about food and product labels. For instance, she says that “many products on the market are falsely labelled as ‘natural’ or ‘organic’” when they’re really packed with chemicals and toxins. This realization led her to develop a house brand of synthetic-free beauty products. Stockpiled alongside products from like-minded artisans, Elixir Organic Spa’s rinses, scrubs, and lotions permeate spa services such as the exfoliating fig enzyme facial.
