Who says bourbon is only for drinking? Bourbon & Blush Salon and Spa — which is now open at 124 S. 1st St. — wants you to try it as a body scrub.

In addition to traditional spa offerings, like massages and salon services, the downtown salon + spa specializes in bourbon-infused scrubs.

The scrubs come from Me Care, a line of bourbon-infused body products created by Bourbon & Blush owner Melissa Jacobi. “It took me three years to develop the product,” she said, "[and] it smells amazing.”

She added that all the Me Care products can be purchased online, but the bourbon-infused sugar scrub is primarily what her staff uses at Bourbon & Blush. “It’s extremely hydrating and exfoliating,” she said. “Your skin is silky smooth for weeks.”

In addition to treatments with a dash of bourbon, Melissa said what sets Bourbon & Blush apart from other spas is that the space she designed accommodates large groups. Y’all thinking what we’re thinking? A LOUtoday spa day.

Bridal parties, families, and groups of friends can bring in their own food and beverages + play their own music for a day-long, bourbon-soaked spa bash. The space can accommodate 50-60 people, so Melissa offers work retreats, too.

“We are not cookie cutter, and we are not corporate,” Melissa said. “We are here to give the guests what they want. I want people to come in, have a good time, have a cocktail, and relax.”
