by Gina Mehmann

I’m an exchange student at the Royal Thimphu College in Thimphu, 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. Much of the experience was very relaxing. I was surprised that not many Bhutanese knew much about the effective benefits of Aloe vera, as the owner of the spa explained.
