Tequila Treatment

If you or your clients have ventured to Mexico, you know tequila flows like water. It's no wonder this spritely spirit has earned itself a holiday and spa treatments in its honor, on July 24 each year. I enjoyed a sip or two of tequila while on my Mexican honeymoon last year in Riviera Maya and agree it deserves the aclaim. Agave, the plant famous for making tequila, is culturally important and has been used for centuries as a source of food, drink, medicine, fuel, and shelter by indigenous people. It also excels at easing skin ailments. At Sense, A Rosewood Spa at Rosewood San Miguel de Allende (Mexico), the Tequile San Miguel spa treatment offers guests a way to enjoy tequila and relax with no worries of a hangover. It relies on agave and tequila to soothe and rejuvenate skin damaged by sun exposure and other elements. At The Spa at Las Ventanas al Paraíso, a Rosewood Resort (San José del Cabo, Mexico) guests can enjoy the Tequila Treatment ($190, 60 minutes; $240, 90 minutes) for a limited time too. Celebrating love, romance, and life, the treatment involved a massage using an elixir of Clase Azul Tequila and aromatic Ajne oil made specifically for Las Ventanas.
