The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York offers the Quintessence Body Scrub, a signature treatment designed with each of the earth’s five elements (fire, earth, metal, water and wood) in mind to bring your body’s energy into alignment. The scrub is made with warming ginger, mandarin and frankincense to relax both your mind and spirit. To exfoliate dry skin, the scrub combines sea salt and sweet almond oil, which is said to produce the smoothest results. This treatment is usually performed before other body services to prepare your skin accordingly. Scrubs at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa are 30 minutes long and run $100 on weekdays and $105 on weekends.
