Hotel Jerome, Auberge Resorts Collection Debuts Yarrow, Its Newly Imagined Spa


Hotel Jerome, Auberge Resorts Collection (Aspen, CO) recently unveiled its refreshed spa, Yarrow. Named after the flowering perennial, the spa is inspired by the centuries-old healing traditions of the Roaring Fork Valley. Its treatments incorporate indigenous minerals, botanicals, and essential oils to nourish the body, mind, and spirit.

Created with a sense of place in mind, Yarrow offers treatments designed for the high-altitude Alpine environment. Some feature a local CBD oil, Lost Range CBD, made in Steamboat, CO, and ideal for relieving sore muscles after a day on the slopes. Other product lines include Antedotem, Esker, Laurel, and Nature of Things. All are focused on the healing power of nature.

The three-treatment room spa offers a variety of services that appeal to Aspen’s adventurous thrill-seekers and outdoor enthusiasts. Some standout treatments include:

Oxygen Renewal ($425, 90 minutes) is a deeply rejuvenating and hydrating oil-based botanical facial that incorporates pressurized oxygen for a cooling and relaxing experience. Oxygen infused with Laurel’s Roots and Roses hydration compound reveals glowing skin from deep within. Providing visible results, this treatment hydrates skin and plumps the skin and boosts cell renewal.

This one-of-a-kind restorative treatment melds a full-body exfoliation, tension release, and sensory experience into one healing journey. Soft strokes of a dry brush stimulate lymphatic circulation, followed by an application of firming botanical oil. Esker’s innovation of the Body Plane, featuring a colloidal silver plane, gently but firmly glides across the skin to provide a light exfoliation. The experience concludes with the massage therapist using two cool studded jade rollers to close the pores and finalize the lymphatic cleanse.
