You don’t always have to invest heavily for the luxury spa experience. With the right ambiance and ingredients a spa can be created in your own home.
The spa experience is a luxury not everyone can afford. Although the natural and herbal spas have proven to have a positive impact as stress relievers, the spa still remains a luxury beyond the reach of many people.
It is not difficult to create a home spa. The home spa is a great way to relax and sooth yourself. Home spas can be created in your bathroom quite easily, using various home spa recipes with ingredients from your pantry.
Herbal home spas can be created using either home spa products purchased from a store, or better yet using various herbs found in your kitchen. All you need to create a luxury home spa is:
- Plush towels and bathrobe
- Soothing music CD
- Scented aromatherapy candles
- Soothing and stimulating essential oils
- Some homemade skincare recipes
- Facial masks using facial mask recipes.
You can create a great ambiance in your personal home spa by combining aromatherapy candles and soothing music of your own choice. It’s amazing the difference subtle lighting can create, and you won’t need any type of fancy home spa equipment either. You can create a luxury home spa simply by using products readily available in your own home. You can create your own home spa recipes for body scrubs.
Method: Combine brown sugar, crushed almonds, a little coarse salt, and your favorite liquid soap. Combine all ingredients and rub all over to slough off dead cells.
Apply a homemade facial mask as you relax in your hot tub:
Method: combine yoghurt and honey, to make a quick and easy face mask. You can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil too.
Another easy recipe using honey is:
Method: Combine ¼ cup honey, ½ cup glycerin and 2 teaspoons of your favorite liquid soap. You can store this cleanser and apply with cotton whenever needed, and wash off.
Another very important ingredient for a great home spa experience is the essential oil you choose for yourself. Essential oils come in a range of unique aromas. There is a range of soothing essential oils if you want to relax, which include, jasmine, lavender and chamomile. The other range available is for revitalizing, which includes peppermint, rosemary, and basil.
The main reason for creating a home spa is for you to relax yourself, physically and mentally after a rough day. Once you try some easy skincare recipes, or facial mask recipes yourself and create your own luxury home spa, you’ll get so hooked to the experience that you’ll want to do it every week.
