Guests at The Okura Prestige Bangkok are invited to experience the therapeutic benefits of exfoliating essential oils derived from natural oriental herbal remedies such as plai, tamarind, camphor, lemongrass, kaffir lime and turmeric.
In the serene confines of The Okura spa, the treatment begins with a 30-minute exfoliating milk body scrub using a mix of milk, plai, tamarind, honey and jasmine rice to warm, clean and relax the skin. This is followed by a 60-minute oil massage using sweet almond oil, which is rich in vitamin E, and a scented Thai herbal ball compress to relieve the back, neck and shoulders of tension. A longer version of the treatment is available with a 90-minute whole body massage.
Tamarind has been acknowledged for generations in the East, especially in Thai culture, for its exfoliation and brightening properties. A wonderful source of AHA and Vitamin C, it helps to gently slough away dull skin cells and diminish the sign of aging. Plai is an effective anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic herb used in body and muscle treatment in sports medicine worldwide. Honey is antibacterial and reduces blemishes, while jasmine rice is a highly effective basis for a body scrub—it gently yet effectively exfoliates to remove dead surface skin cells without over-drying.
