milk + honey was founded in 2006 by Alissa Bayer, and has since become Texas’ premier destination for an exceptional day spa experience. From a single standalone spa in downtown Austin, milk + honey has grown to include a collection of five spas—with two more slated to open in early 2019 and national expansion on the horizon. With a core menu of therapeutic treatments and select seasonal specials, milk + honey operates with a philosophy centered on healing, wellness, and relaxation. milk + honey spas use only the cleanest products for every treatment and the brand is a champion of organic, non-toxic ingredients. milk + honey’s eponymous product line—used throughout the spas and sold in-spa and online—was born in 2013 and developed in collaboration with a team of more than 50 estheticians and massage therapists to be hyperclean and effective, made with only the highest-quality ingredients and pure essential oils. milk + honey was at the forefront of the clean beauty revolution over a decade ago and continues to redefine and democratize the day spa experience for everyone by providing therapeutic and accessible respites and effective and luxurious skincare products to indulge, unwind, and cleanse the body and mind.

milk + honey is the brainchild of lifestyle entrepreneur Alissa Bayer, a Florida native who moved to Austin to attend graduate school at University of Texas at Austin. Alissa fell in love with the city, its unique culture, and the wonderful people, so she and her family made the decision to stay. One thing that Alissa didn’t find in Austin were the wonderful urban day spas that she frequented in years past while living in New York, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco. After much soul-searching and strategic planning, Alissa decided to fill this need and combine her many years of professional experience, her creative and playful nature, and her desire to create something that makes other people feel great. She founded milk + honey in 2006 with a single, standalone spa, and has since grown the brand to include a collection of spas across Austin and Houston as well as a line of hyperclean, non-toxic bath, body, and skincare available in-store and online. A dynamic and inspiring leader with extensive expertise in clean beauty and wellness, Alissa is an active member of the community through her involvement in Girlstart and the University of Texas at Austin’s MBA mentorship program.
BEES by milk + honey In a continued effort to give back, milk + honey owns and operates an urban apiary in Austin that supports the local ecosystem, protects the bees, and produces a small harvest of honey each year. Employees have the opportunity to apprentice with the beekeeper in order to learn about organic, non-aggressive beekeeping firsthand and 100% of the honey proceeds go directly back to maintaining their healthy hives.
