1. Comfy and luxe attire
You need to look and feel the part to capture the full at home spa experience.
Choose your fluffiest towels, your cozy neck pillow, your favorite fuzzy slippers, and your best luxe bath robe—comfort is the name of the game here!
You can also enjoy your time by adding some awesome pampering essentials to your luxe set up. Be inspired and enjoy.
2. Set the mood
Now that you’re adorned in your comfy spa attire, it’s time to set the mood and recreate a classic spa atmosphere!
Start with music, simply choose a “Spa music” playlist from Apple, Spotify or YouTube and set it up to play on repeat.
Next, to set the mood you will need to indulge in your sense of smell. Scent is an essential part of any spa atmosphere, so grab your diffuser, candle or air freshener!
Don’t hesitate to use different scents or essential oils. The point is to research which properties respond to your needs. For example lavender is a lovely scent for serenity and to destress.
3. Set up healthy spa refreshments
Slice up some fresh fruits and place them in a lovely bowl drizzled with honey.
You can also add a beautiful cheese platter with mixed nuts and other light
Furthermore, you can include some of your favorite teas to your lovely display. Here is a gorgeous tea idea by “Herbal Academy”:
Also, a classic favorite at most spas is the infused “spa waters.” You can make your own by flavoring a pitcher of water with strawberries and mint, lavender or rose, citrus and cucumbers, and especially berries will make your experience more luxurious and help keep you hydrated.
4. Choose your spa treatments
You’re comfortably dressed, the mood is set and you’ve got your refreshments ready, so now it’s time to indulge in your at-home treatments.
You can choose from a myriad of relaxing DIY spa treatments, but my favorite is exfoliating. I’ve shared some tips on how to exfoliate and why it’s such a game changer. You can do lot of bath and beauty DIYs over the years, so check out the links below to find the perfect treatments for your skin, nails, and hair.
Some treatments require a bit more prep work than others, so it’s a good idea to choose them beforehand in case you need time to gather your supplies.
