Have you tried the Aloe Vera Spa in Bhutan?

I recently had the opportunity to test an aloe vera gel product during a facial treatment and body wrap at Pema’s Spa in Changangkha near Hati Dunga.What I liked most about the treatment was how gentle and soothing it was on my skin, and the calm ambience at the spa really helped.
