Estonians’ love for everything local and ecologically clean does not end with food. Local herbs, seaweed, sand and clay, which can be gathered from local meadows, forests and beaches, have found their way to spa treatments as well. Popular treatments include those with curative mud, which has been used for over 200 years and which continues to be a beloved favourite of many spa-goers, be it in the form of mud wraps, massage lotions, body scrubs or sauna rituals.
It is not only the world’s most luxurious cosmetics lines that deserve attention; if you seek real health benefits, it is also worth to try out the wonders of Estonian nature, which have been in high regard for quite some time now as luxury from clean nature.
