Frankincense massage now in a Dubai spa


Frankincense massage now in a Dubai spa

I honestly did not know what Frankincense meant until only a few days ago and (obviously) when I googled it. So let me start by explaining the literal meaning:

Frankincense is an aromatic resin used in incense and perfumes, obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia in the family Burseraceae, Frankincense (Bosweallia carteri) has a sweet, warm, balsamic aroma that is stimulating and elevating to the mind. Particularly useful for visualizing, improving a spiritual connection, and centering, it has comforting properties that help with focusing the mind and overcoming stress and despair. Frankincense is also considered a holy anointing oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. In a nutshell, Frankincense is a valuable ingredient in skin care products for ageing and dry skin.

After learning about all this, I was keen to ‘center’ my mind and drove up to the only spa offering this treatment in Dubai, called the Luban Spa which opened up in Umm Suqeim just about a month ago. I felt Zen just walking in to the beautiful white interiors and was welcomed with a delicious hibiscus drink. I was here to try the 90 minute ‘Yuletide’ offer which the spa has launched for the festive season starting with a 30 minute body scrub, 30 minute foot massage (I extended the massage to an hour and BEST decision ever) and ending with a 30 minute facial. Let’s just say I forgot about my next meeting and missed it! But it was with one of my best friends and she wasn’t THAT mad! No but seriously, one of the best massages and going in my list of Regulars!

Price: AED 450 for the 90 minute package

Location: Villa no.100, Umm Al Shief Road, Dubai
