So.. I know I’ve been M.I.A. lately. Well, why not kick start my blog again with an exciting (but calming) post!
I was recently invited to the CHI spa at Shangri-La Hotel for the launch of the Sodashi product and treatment range. CHI Spa in Sydney is the only spa in Australia and there are only 22 spas in the world!! What’s more, all CHI spas are exclusive to the Shangri-La Hotel…
look at that.. how can you resist a spa with such a soothing environment – calming music, dimmed lights, infinity bath tub with rose petals, all inclusive personal room with showers/changerooms.. sounds like I’m selling the spa? LOL! I honestly felt so calm in there but then again I have not been to a high-end spa.
sorry, bad camera, so they’re really bad pics.. but I’m sure you can find more pics on their website.
Chi, The Spa at Shangri-La Sydney recently partnered with Sodashi – the brand that started in the kitchen of Megan Larsen. Sodashi is Sanskrit for “Wholeness, Purity, Radiance”. I was introduced to Sodashi at this event and I certainly felt extremely zen. I was given a chance to understand the thought process that goes into the making of Sodashi and its scents. The essential oils are sourced from all over the world, for example the Lavender Essential oils from France, Rose Essential oil from Turkey.. but it’s all made in Australia.
Here’s the Basic 101 on aromas: Base smell (groups the whole smell together, like a net) – rosewood, sandalwood, ylang ylang; Medium smell – rose, lavender; Top smell (it’s usually a sharp scent and has more of a tendency to evaporate quickly) – citrus smells like grapefruit, orange, lime. When you add the base, medium and top smell together, that’s when you develop your distinct aromatic smell.
Here are some of the Sodashi products:
Chi, The Spa and Sodashi? Two very zen-like calming and relaxing brands – I think it’s a great partnership. I was gratefully gifted a few Sodashi products and will be reviewing them soon.. check back later!
