Ask me how best to spend a few hours de-stressing in Perth and I would probably send you directly to Leederville’s brand spankin’ new day spa, Limón Health & Beauty Spa.
Settling into its beautiful home just off Oxford Street in Leederville, Limón is a stunning sanctuary of calm and has all the goods to knock your stressed little socks off.
Organic, made-to-order skincare is the name of the game here thanks to owner Julianna Horvath’s passion for natural and holistic skincare products. As she explains "We like to make our products as much as possible so we don't have to buy ready-made products with preservatives. This way if someone has some allergy or sensitivity we can change it easily. So our ‘kitchen at the back’ is full of organic raw ingredients like oils, butters and herbs and therapeutic high grade essential oils.”
Bringing to life her vision of a beautiful but approachable day spa which provides the ultimate relaxation experience for each guest has been a labour of love for Horvath and it shows—the spa oozes a tranquil sense of happiness, calm and relaxation. There’s a range of treatments on offer including massages, facials, beauty treatments and even detox packages.
Clearly it’s a no-brainer that you should try one of Perth’s best day spas at the first opportunity but because you already have enough on your plate, I did the hard yards for you, trying Limón's signature package—the Limón Meringue.
After being led through to one of the gorgeous rooms, Julianna started the treatment with a full body lemon sugar scrub (which was freshly made with organic coconut sugar, lemon myrtle, lemon oil, coconut oil and macadamia oil) followed by a light and fluffy whipped shea butter body mask. Both of these smelt absolutely divine and good enough to eat (which I probably could have considering the ingredients!) I was wrapped up to let my skin soften while floating off to snooze-town care of a glorious head and neck massage.
I was then left to enjoy an aromatherapy shower, discovering in the process just how soft your skin can feel when someone lovingly scrubs and moisturises you from head to toe.
From here, it was massage time and Julianna gave me one of the best deep-tissue massages of my life. I asked for a firm massage and she didn’t hold back, ironing out plenty of knots and kinks in my neck and shoulders especially. The package ended with a facial and vitamin c mask. Mukti is the product of choice for all facials at Limón and this beautiful range of skincare products left me glowing.
If this all sounds amazing, multiply it by 1000 and you’ll come close to understanding just how beautifully relaxed and replenished I felt afterwards. If you’re feeling the stresses of a crazy December, maybe some time at this little urban escape is exactly what you need. That, or cross all your fingers and toes that Santa comes through with the goods.
