Body Bliss Collaborates with Hacienda del Sol

Body Bliss has announced a collaboration with Hacienda del Sol  on bespoke resort amenities, spa back bar, and retail products.


Body Bliss Intentional Aromatherapy has announced a collaboration with Hacienda del Sol Guest Ranch (Tucson, AZ) on bespoke resort amenities, spa back bar, and retail products. Working hand in hand with resort general manager Jill Clark and spa director April Amstutz, Body Bliss’s product development team developed full-size custom amenities in a signature blood orange essential oil blend, including body lotion, shampoo, and conditioner. They also worked with Amstutz on the development of the spa treatments featuring Body Bliss products. The gift shop carries the full private label retail collection 

“April and I are huge fans of Body Bliss and witnessed how successful it was at our previous properties Enchantment Resort, Miraval, and Canyon Ranch,” says Clark. “We knew the partnership would be a ‘slam dunk.’ All our spa providers love the products, and our guests are buying retail products like crazy. Our relationship will only grow over time. Once our amazing spa opens in September, the sky’s the limit.”

Sourcing ingredients and producing products as locally as possible was important to Clark and her team. As such, Hacienda Del Sol’s signature blood orange aromatherapy scent is an ideal representation of the area. Blood orange trees surround the property, which has existed in several forms for more than 90 years. In 1920 to the early ‘40s, it was an elite private school for girls, then it was transformed into a guest ranch resort and movie set for Hollywood Westerns, and today in its current form, it is a luxury Forbes 4-Star Resort. 

A fitness center and lap pool have recently been added, and a newly purchased home adjacent to the property is being remodeled into a spa. A wide range of massages and facials are currently offered in three private treatments.

“Our treatment rooms are ridiculously busy—100 percent booked from open until close every day,” says Clark. “Most of our guests insist on a wellness component to their vacation. People want a personal experience. One of the biggest eye openers for us in the last couple months has been people who are calling to make sure they can book spot appointments before they’ll even book their room.”
