IF you are looking for a unique spa experience utilising ingredients from the Dorset seaside, then Sae Seaweed is the place to be.

The new coast-side seaweed baths are located on Middle Beach in Studland and aims to soothe away aches and pains, increase circulation, detoxify and soften skin and hair.

The rolltop baths are pre-filled on arrival at a warm temperature of 38 degrees and a bag of freshly foraged seaweed is placed in the tub.

Expertly selected by Fore Adventures, the seaweed is hand harvested and is naturally rich in antioxidants, minerals and vitamins.

The natural product is often used to treat eczema, psoriasis and to reduce muscle pain.

Before entering the seaweed baths, you are able to sit back and enjoy the beautiful views of Studland on wooden deck chairs.

Staff member, Abbie, then offered us a choice of foot scrubs including nettle, which we were told is good for dry skin, or peppermint for a refreshing treatment.

All products are 100 percent naturally handcrafted and are included in the treatment.

After completing the foot scrub you are able to sit back and enjoy the natural remedies from the seaweed baths.

As the seaweed is freshly hand-picked and dried, it is completely odourless.

It is run through hot water to allow the oils to excrete and is contained in a muslin bag.

Abbie then offered us a selection of face masks including lavender, camomile or elderflower.

We opted for the lavender and elderflower and used the mirrors to apply before returning for a relaxing soak.

The area has two mirrors and baskets with jars of water to wash the facemask off along with buckets of water for the foot scrub.

The whole experience is 50 minutes and at the end you are offered to take the bag of natural seaweed with you, to recreate the experience at home.

Bookings for the Seaweed Spa can be made through the Sae Seaweed website, up to two weeks prior.
