Spas Celebrate Fall with Pumpkins

Pumpkins are popping up everywhere; seasonal drinks, pies, and corner bodegas even have rows of festive orange squash for sale all over Manhattan. Luxury spas are proving the vegetable’s versatility beyond a carving party. Pumpkins contain antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and vitamin E that make it an excellent spa treatment ingredient. Here’s just a few creative offerings containing pumpkin from across the country:

  • Spa Solage at Solage Calistoga (CA) features Pumpkin Mudslide ($98, 60 minutes), a spicy blend of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg whipped into a mud treatment, and Autumn Renewal Facial ($98, 60 minutes), a nutrient-rich cleanse, peel, and mask with grapeseed and pumpkin.
  • Tootsies get pampered at Spa Aiyana at Carmel Valley Ranch (CA) in the new Organic Chai Spice Wrap with Pumpkin Foot Renewal($155, 60 minutes; $220, 90 minute), which includes a pumpkin enzyme foot mask and chai spice warming foot balm.
  • The Spa at Sanderling Resort (Duck, NC) attracts guests this fall with the luxurious Pumpkin & Spice ($160, 80 minutes) treatment for both body and face. It features a pure organic pumpkin enzyme wrap to hydrate all over as well as a moisturizing pumpkin facial.
  • Autumn even makes an authentic appearance in Texas with the Pumpkin Spice Seasonal Facial ($145, 50 minutes) available at the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa (Austin). The aromatic facial contains a blend of cranberry, grapefruit, mandarin orange pomegranate, and pumpkin.
