Visit a new hidden spa at this plant and wellness shop in Northeast Portland

The Jungle Room is a one-room spa tucked inside a woman-owned shop selling plants and skincare products.

After visiting Bosk, you might return home with a new potted plant, a jar of farm-to-skin moisturizer, and a newfound sense of calm.

The latter is attainable at the shop’s new “hidden spa,” The Jungle Room. We were recently invited to check out the plant and wellness shop in Northeast Portland’s Beaumont-Wilshire neighborhood — and meet founder, holistic esthetician, and community visionary, Laura Norton.

Bosk shares a building with Everest M Market. Past owners of the space have used it to house everything from a barbershop to motorcycles. When Laura, who has lived in the area for several years, heard it was available, she saw her chance to take it in a different direction.

Plants, gifts, and various skincare products Laura sources from local woman- and BIPOC-owned businesses now fill the front of the store. In the back, The Jungle Room awaits those who book facials. For City Editor Cambrie, highlights of the hour-long experience included a hot towel treatment (who knew having your face wrapped in one could feel so good?), a gua sha face massage (thank you, instant tension relief), and a jelly mask.

The shop is a labor of love. Laura is continuously working toward the goals she has for the space — like transforming the back parking lot into a gathering place for outdoor movies and night markets. She already hosts pop-ups on the front sidewalk every Saturday to support other local small businesses.

Facials start at $65. Add-on treatments are $10 each. Bosk is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturdays. Spa services are offered every day but Sunday.
