Bottling Nordic

Products that accompany traditional Nordic spa treatments are rich in indigenous bounty from these chillier parts of the globe. Such ingredients include Arctic angelica from the mid and northern parts of Sweden; essential oils from pine, spruce and juniper sourced from Norway; and cranberry, blueberries and sea buckthorn oils from the Arctic Circle. “Our products provide ‘the curative contrast’ between the outdoor chill and indoor warmth,” says The Grand Hotel’s Falk. “The ingredients are sourced from our unique and somewhat rugged Nordic nature.”

“We also source extracts from corn, oats, birch and peat, formed in the Ice Age, from the Arctic Circle,” says Falk. “Together these powerful essential oils, herbs and extracts build an outstanding Nordic defense against the intense times we live in.”
