How to have a spa day at home
You don’t need much to create a relaxing spa experience. Here are some simple ways to unwind, refresh, and feel ready to take on the world—or at least your to-do list.
1. Create a soothing ambiance with calming scents.
Set the scene for the ultimate pamper session with one of these essential oils, like Lavender, Cedarwood, and Sandalwood, these diffuser-ready recipes will lend a calming, grounding aroma to your spa experience. Also try options like Citrus Blend, Joyful Blend, or Peaceful Blend.
2. Dim the lights and cue the relaxing music.
Music and lighting set the tone for a luxurious start to your morning or lowkey spa night. Play soft, calming music to invite feelings of tranquility. Then dim or turn off the lights and use an essential oil diffuser to add soothing illumination to your space.
3. Take a steamy shower or bath infused with essential oils.
Ever wish you could bathe in your favorite essential oils? With the below tips and tricks, you can! Learn more about essential oils and how to whip up essential oil-infused suds for your soak.
Find your favorite essential oils
- Lavender: This gentle scent promotes a relaxed atmosphere and is a perfect treat for a nighttime bath before bed.
- Eucalyptus Globulus: Take a bath with Eucalyptus after a long day or a workout for a refreshing and stimulating experience. This oil is stronger than other oils, so use less of it or blend with another oil like Sandalwood or Geranium.
- Roman Chamomile: The warm and gentle aroma creates a calm atmosphere. It soothes dry skin while unwinding during your nighttime routine.
- Ylang Ylang: Traditionally known for its romantic appeal, Ylang Ylang has a calming, relaxing, and comforting aroma. Massage into the scalp while you bathe to increase the appearance of healthy, shiny hair.
- Sacred Frankincense: This fan favorite can be diffused while you meditate in the bath for increased spiritual awareness and grounding.
- Rose: Has a sensual aroma that creates a peaceful, loving, and nurturing environment while promoting a healthy complexion.
- Patchouli: Provides an earthy, grounded atmosphere while occasionally improving the appearance of dry, chapped skin.
4. Give your skin some love by exfoliating and moisturizing.
What’s a home spa day without skin care? Exfoliating removes dead skin cells and leaves your skin feeling fresh and soft. Follow up this home spa treatment with Lip Scrub on your lips and Facial Scrub for gentle facial exfoliation.
Next, seal in moisture with an oil massage or with your favorite body and face lotions. If you’re craving more intense hydration, you can apply Rose Ointment instead.
5. Indulge in a face mask.
Looking to detox your skin and clear out your pores? Check out some masks which are made with naturally derived ingredients to detox skin, purify pores, reduce the appearance of blemishes, and restore the appearance of an even skin tone. If your skin is in need of a fresh, nourishing boost, try some masks that improve skin elasticity and leave skin looking fresher and plumper with a big shot of moisturization.
6. Enjoy a warm cup of tea or refreshing infused water.
There’s something about brewing a cup of tea that feels calming and meditative. If you love sweet, herbaceous teas, try Lemongrass Tea which infused with just enough caffeine to kick off your day. For an evening treat, try Turmeric Herbal Tea, which is a perfect comforting blend. If you prefer refreshing, cold hydration, add ice to your steeped tea to cool it or use your favorite essential oils to create mouthwatering, hydrating infusions.
Every mother is amazing. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums everywhere! Let’s have a pamper day!
