It was difficult to decide which oil to pick from—lavender, orange, ginger+lime or sandalwood. Having a little knowledge of properties of oils, I decided on the power of lavender for healing and soothing. Also, the light fragrance takes you in a trance. Dily, a 20-year-old spa therapist from Mizoram, was slowly weaving magic with her hands at the Mystic Spa. The stress was melting under her soft kneading. Dily has been a masseuse for two years and the effect was seen in her soft talks and looks. Soft music and dim lights added to the ambience. After a 60-minute session, she gave me a body scrub and I felt luxuriously fresh and clean.
Then it was time for a fresh fruit anti-tan facial. Saroj, who has been a beautician for almost a decade, was slowly scrubbing my face. Freshly grated papaya was used to wash out effects of the summer sun. And then came the massage with a fresh smelling gel. In the end cucumber on my eyes and face pack to tighten the pores, I was almost falling asleep. But the effect after this was a refreshed me!
