When you can’t get to your favourite sanctuary, you can
indulge at home with these treatments inspired by top spas
across Canada BY DEBORAH FULSANG
THE HAUSCHKA PEDICURE 1. WHERE TO FIND IT: Dr. Hauschka Spa in Montreal, www.spadrhauschka.com
DO IT YOURSELF:
Step 1. Soak your tootsies in a basin
of lukewarm water and a capful of Dr.
Hauschka’s Sage Bath. Sprinkle in a few
fresh rose petals and soak for 8 to 10
minutes. “Soak with intention,” says spa
owner Enaam Takla. “Try to meditate.
Visualize calming things. Focus on your
breathing and the aroma of the sage.”
Step 2. Pat feet dry and smooth on
Rosemary Foot Balm (it helps control
odour and athlete’s foot) or use the
brand’s Fitness Foot Balm to heal
rough, dry heels.
Step 3. Push back cuticles with a nail
stick. Dr. Hauschka’s Neem Nail Oil
Stick contains medicinal plant extract
to treat and protect cuticles and help
strengthen nail beds.
Step 4. Massage your feet and legs
with Rosemary Leg and Arm Toner to
stimulate blood circulation. Go slowly
and rhythmically, beginning at the toes
and working your way up.
Step 5. Steal a nap to make this feel-
good moment last.
“Dr. Hauschka Spa pedicures
are blissful. They actually
lie you down and give
you a 20-minute essential-oil
massage.”—Anna Varriano, Mona Moore
