Winter is finally over! It’s time to celebrate by incorporating some of nature’s new bounty into your treatments. Here are 7 garden-fresh ingredients to work into your spring menu.

1. Strawberries

You can incorporate strawberries into your treatments (think masks and moisturizers), or your food menu (strawberry mini-tarts, anyone?).

Aromatherapy candles or oils scented with lilac will transport your clients to a serene English garden.

6. Rosebuds

Roses aren’t quite in bloom yet in spring, but you can still incorporate rosebuds into your treatments (or even your treatment room décor).

7. Radishes

You probably don’t want to incorporate radishes into any treatments, but they’ll make delicious tea sandwiches for an after-treatment snack.
