Castle Hill Inn Offers Natural Therapeutic Treatments from Farmaesthetics


Castle Hill Inn, the iconic ocean side inn in Newport, RI, and Farmaesthetics, the global green beauty brand, announce the permanent installation of The Retreat at Castle Hill by Farmaesthetics.

“Castle Hill Inn and Farmaesthetics tested the waters with a ‘pop-up spa’ during the spring of 2014. The partnership worked on so many levels that we decided to make this a permanent relationship,” says Brian Young, managing director at Castle Hill Inn.

Castle Hill Inn and Farmaesthetics have transformed two of the historic mansion’s ocean-view suites into sumptuous, serene treatment rooms. All Farmaesthetics services are personalized and performed with the brand’s premium, all-natural herbal products. Treatments include:

  • Facials performed with handcrafted skin care products made with organically grown herbs and flowers, to provide a luscious, relaxing experience with lasting results
  • Therapeutic massage that addresses individual needs with organic oils and lotions chosen for the desired results
  • Acupressure massage for face, head, neck, hands and feet
  • Pre- or post-treatment saltwater soaks with essential oil blends to purify, boost immune support, relieve stress or warm the body and senses

“Farmaesthetics represents 100% natural Sustainable Beauty® created from organically grown herbs and flowers from American family farms, many of which can be found in Rhode Island’s seaside farmlands,” says Brenda Brock, Farmaesthetics founder and formulator. “Our products are natural, as is our partnership with Castle Hill Inn. The Retreat at Castle Hill by Farmaesthetics offers beautifying, relaxing, customized treatments for the inn’s guests, as well as those who wish to visit Castle Hill for the skin care boutique. It is a natural extension of the Castle Hill experience.”
