The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Los Angeles Partners with LAIT Candles

The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Los Angeles has partnered with LA-based craft candlemaker LAIT Candles to launch a customized self-care experience for spa-going guests.

Developed in collaboration with LAIT founder Jennifer Rhee and The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Los Angeles spa director Tyneese Thompson, this curated experience begins when guests meet with their spa therapist to discuss a preferred area of focus. The treatments focus on three areas of focus: unwinding from stress, focusing on breathwork, or grounding treatments that help bring clarity and inspire a fresh start. 

Inspired by their selection, the spa team recommends aromatherapy or “scent blends” that support their chosen focus. Featured The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Los Angeles treatments:

Unwinding from Stress – a relaxing massage that utilizes light to moderate touch and incorporates a custom scent blend featuring calming lavender and white sage essential oils; also includes a classic spa pedicure with lavender paraffin treatment ($300)

Focus on Breathwork – a delicate, light pressure massage that begins with deep inhalations of eucalyptus essential oils to release the active mind and includes a foot exfoliation with a custom peppermint scrub blend; recommended aromatherapy includes notes of peppermint, eucalyptus, and cedarwood oil ($290)

Fresh Start – an energizing pedicure service starting with a rosemary mint tea soak and custom blend citrus scrub with notes of basil, grapefruit and cilantro. The pedicure is completed by fresh melon moisture application. Guest will enjoy a heated neck wrap, a warm herbal oil soak and light citrus hand exfoliation for their manicure that ends with fresh melon moisture application ($235)

Following each treatment, LAIT creates a custom, hand-poured candle for that unique guest, incorporating their preferred scent blends. The luxury candles are delivered two to three weeks following the spa visit.

Packages start at $235 and include pool access and validated parking. To make an appointment at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Los Angeles, visit
