How to Have a Luxurious Spa Day at Home

If stress is your middle name, read our ultimate guide on how to have a luxurious spa day at home. It’s probably true to say many of us associate ancient spas with Roman baths. And with good reason, the Latin for Spa is Salus per aquae which translates to health through water. What better way to relax and calm the senses than with a luxurious mineral-filled bath.

When we think about Spa’s we automatically think, calm, relax, detox, and with that in mind let’s have a look at how you can achieve a state of relaxation and harmony at home.

How to Create a Spa Day at Home

A Relaxing Bath

First of all, run yourself a warm bath and add some Himalayan salt. Himalayan mineral rich crystal salts can be dissolved in your bath for a full body soothing soak to calm and relax the senses. You can also add a few drops of Lavender essential oil, lavender is a good choice because it calms the mind and body.

Create a Calm Atmosphere

If you’re a rock chick you probably need to tone it down a bit, try calming and relaxing music that will encourage you to relax. A little mood lighting will most definitely add to the tranquil effect, light your favourite scented candles to achieve this.
The more candles the better just don’t light too many so your local fire brigade will call round!

It’s all about the Face

Treat you face to an oat and Shea relaxing face mask. They have all the goodness of a face mask in a cube form which is easy to use and store. Just half a cube is enough for the face. These face mask cubes are suitable for dry, oily and sensitive skins.

French yellow clay is very good detoxing the skin without stripping skin of its natural moisture, this clay is very gentle and non-abrasive leaves skin squeaky clean and glowing.

Colloidal oatmeal – is a form of oatmeal which is specially made for cosmetic use this is not a normal oat flour. Oats are processed in a special way so that we get the maximum benefit from a tiny amount.

Safflower oil – Best for all kinds of skin types and is approved for use for oily and acne-prone skin too.

Allantoin for extra soothing and reduce puffiness and redness after using the face mask.

Don’t forget to place some cucumber on your eyes. Cucumber has an anti-inflammatory effect that helps with reducing puffiness around the eyes.

Banish Dead Skin

You can make a lovely cheap and effective body exfoliator with sugar, base oil, and a few drops of essential oils of your choice. Try one that compliments your skin type; we especially like the ones below.

  • Frankincense essential oil for improving skin tone and treating aging skin it’s also used for reducing scar tissue.
  • Lavender, works for all skin types having a balancing action on the skin. Try lavender if you suffer from eczema, psoriasis, acne, or dermatitis.
  • Jasmine essential oil is said to soothe the nerves and produce a feeling of confidence and optimism.  Whilst also restoring energy.

Revitalize your Hair

Most of us tend to overlook our hair during a home spa treatment, truth be told it’s just as important as the rest of our body. Always use a shampoo that has a PH balance of 4.0 to 5.5 and try to avoid Parabens and SLS.
You can make a gorgeous PH balanced shampoo from Coconut Milk and Aloe Vera Gel. Packed full of vitamins and minerals it’s sure to make your hair silky, soft, and look fabulous!

Relax and Unwind

After you’ve pampered and preened yourself to a heavenly bliss, wrap yourself in a warm fluffy dressing gown with a glass of lemon water. Listen to some calming music or watch a feel-good movie you know you deserve it!
