Jeju Herb Dongsan (Herb Garden)

A Day in an Exotic Herb Garden

In the lively lands of Jeju Island, flowers bloom throughout the year. A spot in Pyoseon, a village caressed by clear sea breeze, is especially notable for being a forest made up of numerous herbs. It is Jeju Herb Dongsan (Herb Garden), a place that embraces the weary in the generous bosom of nature. We follow the fragrance to the heart of the garden.

Herb Dongsan, located in Pyoseon, Jeju, has flowers all year around. There are 150 kinds of herbs under the sea breeze, and various wild flowers grow well. Along with the nicely created herb park, visitors can enjoy an indoor garden where herbs grow throughout the year, rosemary square, and a windmill observatory. There are many benches and chairs all over the farm, so you can take a break anytime if you come across a scene you like.

Foot Bath with Fragrant Herbs

For visitors of Herb Dongsan, the aroma foot spa is highly recommended. It is really good to soothe the tired feet of travelers. A golden foot bath is filled with hot water. Bath preparations are different every week. Normally, products with rose, which is good for skin regeneration and anti-aging, or rosemary, which is good for antibacterial effect and muscle relaxation, are used. A few drops of undiluted extract of peppermint are added to water at the proper temperature as not to destroy the healthful ingredients of herbs. Five minutes after taking a peaceful rest while dipping your feet in the foot bath, you can feel the heat coming from the feet, and your whole body gets warmer. After the foot spa, you can scrub your feet with sweet-scented rose salt to exfoliate. In the meantime, a therapist will apply peppermint oil on the back of your neck. Cool and refreshing peppermint oil is helpful to ease headaches and loosen knotted muscles. Lastly, rosemary mist is sprayed to the face. It feels like even smelling the fragrance alone heals the mind. The 20 minute foot spa program finishes pleasantly with rosemary mist.
