Essentially Vermont Spa

Lyndonville, VT

Honest well being handcrafted in Vermont.

Inside the doors of Essentially Vermont Wellness Spa & Boutique exists an oasis from life's challenges. In this little corner of Vermont we call the Northeast Kingdom, you can find therapeutic massages, hydrating body wraps, foot soaks, facials, an infrared sauna, as well as premium organic skin-care products and beeswax aromatherapy candles, aromatherapy oils and body butters and oils.



The types of massages include:

  • Sports Massage.
  • Orthopedic Massage.
  • Deep Tissue with Ashiatsu.
  • Swedish Massage.

We offer 60, 75 and 90-minute massages.


Hydrating & Exfoliating Wraps - Try our exfoliating scrubs with organic premium essential oils, seed oils & butters to refresh and nourish skin cells and smooth cellulite. While relaxing under heat lamps, your scalp and feet are massaged, followed by a head-to-toe massage with the most nourishing moisturizers to bring your skin to a supple hydrated glow. It is the perfect smoothing treatment to prepare for that special summer event or repair sun exposure.

Detoxifying Dead Sea Mud Wrap - Dead Sea mud not only removes dead skin cells, it pulls toxins out of the skin while nourishing with numerous minerals to create healthier and stronger skin cells. This treatment will increase circulation to give the skin a renewed fresh appearance. While you enjoy the heat of the infrared lamps, your scalp will be massaged with stimulating essential oils to promote healthy hair growth. Our hydrating green-tea lotion will be massaged into your skin for smooth and healthy glowing skin.


Foot Soak & Foot Massage - Salts from the Dead Sea, Himalayan salt with activated charcoal from coconut shells, Kaolin clay and pure essential oils pull toxins from the body and soothe sore feet. We then follow with a moisturizing massage to leave the feet soft and relaxed. Choose your soak: Petals of Love (with pure rose essential oil), Relax & Reflect (with pink grapefruit clary sage), Rejuvenate (with eucalyptus and peppermint) and Woodfire Warmth (with balsam, spruce and sweet orange).

Exfoliating Hand & Foot Treatment - Relax on the heated massage table with feet and hands wrapped in hot mittens while your scalp is massaged with stimulating and nourishing serums. The treatment includes an exfoliation of your feet and hands to remove dry skin, followed by a massage and moisturizers.


Infrared light is the relaxing warmth we feel from the sun or while sitting next to a wood fire. It is light that makes us feel warm and happy. Unlike a traditional sauna, it's not scorching hot. It gently warms from the inside out, causing you to sweat without feeling discomfort.

Health Benefits:

  • Help reduce body fat.
  • Regenerate cells.
  • Reduce inflammation and pain.
  • Faster wound healing.
  • Increase collagen production/anti-aging.
  • Recharge cell mitochondria.

Chromotherapy (color therapy) and meditation music - specifically chosen for slowing the heart rate, reducing blood pressure and relaxing the muscles - deepen this relaxing experience.


Essentially Vermont Candles was started by Tracy Gilman in 1995 when she was a young, stay-at-home mom, raising three little kids. A very good friend introduced her to herbs and essential oils and suggested that she make beeswax candles to earn money. She purchased her first blocks of beeswax, headed home to melt it down and make candles. Soon, she had tapered candles hanging from hooks under  cabinets and poured candles, covering counter tops... and the rest is history.

She started selling her candles everywhere and anywhere she could, at farmers' markets, craft shows, church basements, juried shows featuring 300 vendors, gift shops and artisans' guilds. She became known as the Candle Lady.

After her children were grown, she went back to school and studied Natural Health and Advanced Therapeutic Massage. For the next 12 years, she worked in a world-class spa where she used the highest quality and most expensive aromatherapy and body products on the market, using herbs, salts and oils that she might never have had a chance to use otherwise.

It was then she discovered her products were of equal or higher quality, using base oils and herbs that nurture and improve skin health and essential oils that nurture the body and soul.

Her products include:

  • Soaps (balsam/spruce, lavender, lemongrass, pepperment/patchouli, tangerine/calendula, unscented, Ylang Ylang lemongrass).
  • Pillar Candles (Ylang Ylang lemongrass, patchouli/peppermint, lemongrass, lavender, balsam/spruce, rosemary lavender, naturally scented).
  • Salves & Massage Oils (cocoa shea all-over body butter, cocoa shea lip love, nature's salve, nature's salve lip & hands, exotic blend massage oil, tension relief massage oil).
