Spa treatments offer a great way to relax and unwind. They have mental and emotional health effects that can benefit you in the long run. But they’re not exactly good for your wallet, are they? It’s hard to deny that they can get expensive - especially if you turn them into a weekly habit.
So what can you do to enjoy the benefits of a spa experience without having to shell out a lot of cash? Simple, create your own spa experience at home.
The benefits are numerous! Aside from saving money, you get to make sure that all the ingredients in your spa essentials are safe and natural. Making your DIY creams and scrubs is all part of the fun. If you want, you can even host a spa-rty with your friends or you can surprise your partner and turn it into something romantic.
How can you create a fun spa experience at home? Here are some of our ideas:
It all starts with the dirty work. A dirty bathroom is going to destroy your mood, so you need to set aside time to make sure that your bathroom is clean and hygienic. Our suggestion? You might want to make your own cleansers as well, so that your bathroom won’t smell like chemicals. Lemon and baking soda are popular options.
It won’t be a luxurious experience if you don’t treat yourself to nice and plush towels and robes. Invest in something soft, absorbent and easy to care for. Luxurious towels are more expensive than regular towels, but they are often worth the splurge. Don’t forget the nice robes - it would be nice to lounge around your room after your bath.
A couple of days before your scheduled “me time,” set aside a couple of hours to make your own facial cream and body scrub. It’s a lot simpler than it sounds. For example, you can simply mix Epsom salt with your favorite body cream. Making your own bath essentials is a good hobby. Plus, by making your own stuff, you can be confident that you’re not putting harmful chemicals into your body.
When you walk in any spa, one of the first things you’ll probably notice is the relaxing atmosphere. The zen music and the scented candles help create the calm mood. They all contribute to the experience. Invest in several essentials that will help you create the mood you want. If you want the evening to be particularly romantic, spreading petals is a good idea.
You can also level up your bath simply by adding Epsom salt to your bath water. It’s a great bath addition that can help you relax and enjoy numerous health benefits at the same time.
Epsom salt is mainly made from Magnesium and Sulfate, which can help raise your energy levels. It is known to help with a lot of health conditions. It can soothe muscles, smoothen skin and even boost the immune system.
All our Epsom salt blends are enhanced with essential oils for aromatherapy benefits. Specific essential oils can help address the specific needs of your body. For example, lavender is a popular sleep enhancer, while tea tree oil is popular for its antibacterial properties.
