The best Denver sweet spots — that are healthy for your body
By Aimee Heckel
Sugar, even in large doses, can be healthy. At least in a different form than ingestion.
Sugar scrubs and culinary-inspired spa treatments are a popular way to treat your body, without the guilt, calories and inevitable energy crash when the buzz wears off.
Here are some of our favorite ways to get a sweet treat in Denver, without negating your Colorado yoga burn.
Try the Almond Joy Experience at the Oxford Club, the well known spa connected to the historic Oxford Hotel in downtown Denver. This 85-minute treatment turns you into the candy bar. First, your body is exfoliated with a Sanitas Skin Care sugar scrub. Then you’re covered in a warm chocolate body wrap. Finally, the therapist rubs your body down with an almond oil massage.
Want to try it at home? Pick up a Sanitas sugar scrub at Pharmaca.com. We love the milk and honey scrub, $29, which will moisturize your skin with unfiltered Colorado honey, exfoliate with sugar crystals and replenish with vitamins, shea butter and beta glucan, with no parabens and yucky ingredients.

Feeling the milk and honey idea? Try the Oxford Club’s Milk and Honey Bath Experience, which includes a warm milk and honey masque, a sugar scrub, a milk bath, a face and scalp massage and wraps up with an application of milk and honey butter.
Want to head out of downtown? Check out the Sugar Spot, outside of Denver in Arvada. The Sugar Body Polish and Hydration treatment is only $50 and includes a sugar scrub and massage with body cream. Check out the retail room, where you can treat your skin with the Image Skincare line and the high pigmented gloMinerals makeup line.
