The whole menu and product line is inspired by ancient herblore and foraging, taking the wild plants and herbs that grow naturally in our British hedgerows and blending them to create sustainably sourced products
– Jacqueline Kneebone

The Tom Dixon-designed agua London spa has launched a new treatment menu drawing inspiration from British wild plants and hedgerows and the remedies that can be made from them.

Five of agua London’s signature treatments have been reimagined using new Hedgerow by agua products that have been created in-house using locally and sustainably sourced botanical ingredients such as rosehips and marigolds.

The product line features five core products including balms, butters, salves and blended oils that will be used in all treatments on the new menu.

The core products will have a strong emphasis on rosemary and lemon balm which are claimed to improve circulation and antioxidant activity, while reducing anxiety and inflammation.

In addition to the spa’s five core products, seasonal treatment enhancements such as compresses, scrubs and infusions will be added throughout the year following the traditional study of herbs – called herblore.

For Spring, the complementary products will focus on the use of dandelion and thistle leaves by working to support the body’s detoxification ability and encourage it to adapt from its winter state.

Director of front of house and wellness at agua London, Jacqueline Kneebone, said: “We’ve created our own unique products to be used in this treatment menu, as we strongly believe in the principle and the benefits we can offer to guests.”

She continued: “The whole menu and product line is inspired by ancient herblore and foraging, taking the wild plants and herbs that grow naturally in our British hedgerows and blending them to create sustainably sourced products.”
