Nowadays it is very important for many of us to preserve our young looks and beauty. This is the reason why this wellness treatment is becoming more and more popular.

Honey is rich in vitamins, amino acids and mineral substances and it also has an antibacterial and skin smoothening effect.
Besides the bath treatment also packs are applied with milk and oil content. Guests are wrapped in foil or warm clothes for the treatment duration.
