WELLNESS / SPA/RESORT
My recent visit to the Earthen Wellness Spa in Bangalore was truly an experience to cherish. A well maintained Spa spread over three floors, the staff greeted me it was rather an earthy welcome. I was offered water in a mud glass that set my tone to this Spa. I was inspired to do a pedicure as the place had an exceptional twist to the pedicure zone, Urulis and well rested couches. I love the Kerala Uruli a lot and have a couple in my home, I was quite excited to the thoughtful twist given to replace the boring ceramic washbasins. Their signature pedicure comes with two massages, a kashayam hot water soak, and the turmeric scrub which is a well prescribed ritual in classic Ayurveda. I liked the kashayam that was made and as my feet soaked, I felt a sense of rejuvenation. I think this signature pedicure treatment is a a to be experienced one for every one of us. I felt so pampered with this pedicure like never ever before. I am not a great fan of packs on my feet, but a kumkumadi pack on my feet left my skin supple and glowing. This pedicure left my feet soft, detanned and I loved the authenticity of the massages. Earthen Wellness certainly has a signature pedicure, which I recommend for busy women, and all the pedicure fans. I sure liked the way the staff were training in maintaining authenticity, and my interactions with Sharmila were grounded.
