Love: Give a Little, Take a Little

February 9, 2017

Although it seems like the holidays were only yesterday, another one is right around the corner: it’s time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day! ‘Tis the season to spoil your loved ones—and yourself—with gifts, affection and a hearty dose of relaxation. With that in mind, read on for our favorite Valentine’s treats sure to help recipients unwind—and focus on what really matters.

Aveda Love Composition Oil

Heat things up with this sensual composition oil made with sandalwood, jasmine, and frankincense. This organic, nourishing oil that you can find in any JUUT Salon Spa location makes the body, hair, scalp and skin feel (and smell) heavenly. Add a few drops in your bath to take the relaxation to the next level, or use it as a massage oil to leave skin feeling soft and supple. The best part? Aveda donates $4 of every purchase of this oil to the National Audubon Society for projects that fight climate change. Talk about love.

There’s really no way to say “I love you” like a gift that lets them enjoy an hour and a half of stress-melting bliss, sans phone or other distractions. Need more convincing? Massages at JUUT Salon Spa are much more than just relaxing—they also improve flexibility, prevent muscle injuries, boost the immune system, and reduce the effects of long hours sitting at a desk working…all in JUUT’s luxurious environment. We know what you’re thinking, and yes, you should absolutely book one for yourself, too.

A Personalized Playlist

Whatever happened to good ole mixed tapes to show your feelings? We vote for a modern revitalization of this classic romantic gesture. Make your sweetheart a playlist with songs that make you think of them—they can listen all day, and they’ll think of you the whole time. Bonus: unlike the mix-tapes of old, there’s no limit to the amount of songs you can put on your playlist, so let the good music roll.

Tulasāra Facial

If your loved one could use a little more balance in their life—and who couldn’t—a Tulasara facial is the ideal gesture. Tulasara, meaning “moving toward balance” in Sanskrit, is inspired by Ayurvedic methods for achieving healthy, glowing skin. The facial can be customized to soothe a variety of skin concerns, including dryness, excess oil, acne, and sensitivity—ensuring your sweetheart gets the exact special treatment they deserve.

A Real Photo Album

Instagram shots are cute and fun for scrolling, but there’s nothing like real life prints you can look at everyday to remind you of all the good times you’ve had. Print out your favorites and add them to an album with heartfelt captions for a gift that will definitely make them smile every time they see it.

Aveda Stress-Fix Soaking Salts

These soaking salts are a game-changer for bath lovers everywhere. Infused with lavender and clary sage essential oils, the heavenly aroma is proven to reduce feelings of stress. Add some rose petals to the water and a glass of wine, and enjoy in for the most relaxing bath of your life.

These Soaking Salts, the Composition Oil, and all the services above can be found at your nearest JUUT Salon Spa location.
