Of course, businesses do look beyond the pumpkin patch—and to their immediate surroundings—when concocting fall services. Recoop's scrub features pumpkin, but also includes organic brown sugar, vanilla extract, almond oil and cinnamon. "We make a lot of our scrubs and infused oils in-house using locally sourced, organic ingredients," reports Hackerman. In the same vein, Mr. C Spa & Beauty in Beverly Hills, California, off ers Autumn's Vibrant Glow, which features a body scrub containing orange, along with essential oils, organic sugar and house-ground ginger. "It's the ultimate preparation for winter to exfoliate and infuse the skin and body with vitamin C," says spa manager Judy Beccera. Outside of the treatments themselves, lots of little touches help coax clients into giving seasonal off erings a try. At Oasis, for instance, freshly picked pumpkins and scented candles with notes of cinnamon, orange and clove fi ll the rooms. Meanwhile, Recoop serves pumpkin chai teas, while Mr. C off ers guests a glass of ginger-orange Prosecco prior to its fall-themed services. To further pique interest, spas strive to promote their unique treatments well befo re they debut—and to emphasize that they wo n't last long. Oasis sends an email blast in advance of the coming season, followed by weekly Instagram and Facebook posts, as well as in-spa signage. "This allows clients to come back and receive a service they loved a second or even a third time," says Schoenberg. "They know that these treatments won't be around long, which makes seasonal menu items more enticing and special." © GETTY IMAGES FROM THE MENU Autumn's Vibrant Glow To keep skin fresh, smooth and healthy during cooler weather, this invigorating and detoxifying body treatment begins with a dry brushing, setting the stage for an exfoliating scrub containing orange, organic white sugar, essential oils and freshly ground ginger.
