Introduction to OV naturals

Introduction to OV naturals "Lucy, a trained aromatherapist, offers bespoke massages and facials tailored to your needs, using her exquisite handmade organic face and body oils. This facial, a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, masks and deep moisturising alongside hot stones and continual massage, was the most intensely relaxing beauty treatment I think I've ever experienced. My only thought in a zen-like hour and a quarter was that I might not be able to get off the bed and drive home afterwards." Clare Empson,
