Houston’s First Cannabis Concept Spa

By: DJ Madson


Helen Ruiz opened Elestial’s doors this August as a revolutionary spa focusing on cannabis-rich

skincare and body treatments. Elestial offers a variety of services including lash extensions, lifts,

tints, waxing, and facials. The most popular services range from a variety of full spectrum CBD

infused facial treatments. CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid with an

array of health and medical benefits. Helen explains that CBD is hemp derived and federally

legal, and spa treatments are suitable for all ages. Topically, CBD acts as an anti-inflammatory,

antioxidant, promotes healing and regulates oil control, and is rich in omega acids. Helen is a

Houston native and a dual licensed massage therapist and esthetician. She says, “CBD first

became legal in Texas in 2015; my mom started using the tinctures for arthritis pain, muscle

tension, and headaches. I saw first-hand the benefits and transformation it had on her

perspective of cannabis oil. I knew the powerful benefits, and I wanted to incorporate it into my

spa, making cannabis more mainstream and breaking the stigma. “
