NATURAL SPAS ACROSS THE COUNTRY
Longer, warmer days signal a time of renewal. Dormant trees burst into life, fragrant flowers impart their heady scents and thoughts turn to travel and time spent outdoors. This seasonal transition is the perfect time to regenerate the body, mind and soul with a quick visit to a local spa or destination getaway for a fully-immersive experience - an opportunity to revive, revitalise and restore depleted energy levels.
Co-founder of ONDA Beauty, Sarah Bryden-Brown, has recently launched Lume - a home for clean beauty products and treatments, wellness workshops and events. Tailored plant-based skincare treatments are complemented with holistic well-being rituals such as aromatherapy, massage and meditation to help restore and replenish energy.
