Spa Comfort Food

As the temperatures and leaves begin to drop, spa-goers are looking for comfort from seasonal favorites. While the long-beloved PSL may have suffered as a result of its ingredient list, spas have worthy substitutes on the treatment menu this season. Evensong Spa at Heidel House Resort (Green Lake, WI) welcomes classic fall-favorite flavors with seasonal harvest spa treatments through November that won’t expand waistlines.

  • The Great Pumpkin Harvest Facial ($100, 50 minutes): Customized for each guest’s skin type, Evensong’s organic products will give the skin a deep cleanse, exfoliation and hydration. An apple massage soufflé is used during the facial massage to relax any tension in the face. To finish, a scrumptious yam and pumpkin enzyme peel is used to accelerate turnover, increase collagen, plump the skin and protect connective tissue.
  • Spiked Pecan Pie Body Treatment ($100, 50 minutes): Perfect for the fall season, this treatment uses a mixture of bourbon and pecan-infused brown sugar massaged over the body, exfoliating dry dull skin. Warm towels are then used to remove the mixture to put guests into a deep state of relaxation. Next, the therapists use velvety caramel body milk for a soothing back, neck and shoulder massage.
  • Spiced Caramel Apple Pedicure ($70, 50 minutes): It starts off with a warm apple cider soak, followed by cinnamon scented honey scrub to exfoliate and soften dry skin. Then, Evensong specialists use a caramel body milk to massage the feet and calves. Nails and cuticles are shaped and cared for. The treatment is finished with the latest fall color lacquer or buffed to a shine.
