Traveling for a wellness retreat is a luxury, but you can create a home spa experience using local products to achieve similarly relaxing results.


This fragrance was custom-made for Watershed Spa, with ingredients selected not just for their scents but also for their properties. Sandalwood, for instance, is thought to promote calm and clarity. The limited edition, hand-blown glass bottle is by local artists at OURglass. 1-ounce $110, refill $80;
