Alpine alchemy: make your own natural cosmetics at Six Senses Gstaad

13 Feb 2020
Guests at Six Senses Spa at The Alpina Gstaad, Switzerland can make their own bath bombs and natural cosmetics in alchemy wellbeing workshops which harness the power of natural ingredients.

During the 60-minute workshop, guests will create personalised products using fresh, seasonal and organic ingredients, some of which are sourced from the on-site organic garden.

On the menu are a wide variety of natural and exotic ingredients, such as fruits and herbs which are blended to create aromatic scrubs, bath soaks, poultices and masks. The workshop costs CHF195 (£152, US$199, €181).

"The Alchemy bar offers a sustainable solution that anyone can create for themselves within the comfort of their homes,” said Antonis Sarris, head therapist and trainer at Alpina Gstaad. “The experienced spa Alchemy Bar Hosts offer knowledge on how to best use nature’s resources in a simple and easy way to cater to your individual wellbeing needs”.

The Six Senses Spa also offers an entire Alchemy wellbeing day package, featuring the hands-on workshop, a hydrating Swiss milk wrap using a handmade scrub, a foot treatment and an ultimate facial. The programme costs CHF787 (£617, US$809, €734).

The Alchemy Bar Experience is running until 15 March 2020.
