I always receive the same text when a friend visits milk + honey for the first time. It’s always a little something like “What should I do?” or “Which service is your favorite?” And of course, it can be difficult to recommend just one spa service. For one, I haven’t tried all of them yet. And secondly, every single one I have experienced has been a dream. So, I decided to go to the top for advice. I sat down with milk + honey founder, Alissa Bayer to ask her for her current top three favorite services. Scroll for Alissa’s picks (in no particular order.)
