milk + honey was founded in 2006 by Alissa Bayer, and has since become Texas’ premier destination for an exceptional day spa experience. From a single standalone spa in downtown Austin, milk + honey has grown to include a collection of five spas—with two more slated to open in early 2019 and national expansion on the horizon. With a core menu of therapeutic treatments and select seasonal specials, milk + honey operates with a philosophy centered on healing, wellness, and relaxation. milk + honey spas use only the cleanest products for every treatment and the brand is a champion of organic, non-toxic ingredients. milk + honey’s eponymous product line—used throughout the spas and sold in-spa and online—was born in 2013 and developed in collaboration with a team of more than 50 estheticians and massage therapists to be hyperclean and effective, made with only the highest-quality ingredients and pure essential oils. milk + honey was at the forefront of the clean beauty revolution over a decade ago and continues to redefine and democratize the day spa experience for everyone by providing therapeutic and accessible respites and effective and luxurious skincare products to indulge, unwind, and cleanse the body and mind.
