“Seven years ago, a famous and renowned lady, whose name I cannot reveal, was telling me step by step what I should do while I was performing the massage, and by step by step, I mean almost minute by minute. Suddenly, she felt like she was having a heart attack—which she wasn’t—but she pretty quickly wrapped herself in the massage sheet and ran to the bathroom. What happened is that she was allergic to rosemary and knew it. She didn’t tell me, but she did choose rosemary oil for her massage.”—Carmelina Montelongo, spa director, The Spa at Chablé (Chochola, Yucatan, Mexico)
