How to Create a Spa Experience at Home

Most of us are seasoned multi-taskers. We handle irate bosses, stressful meetings and crazy client dealings with the same composure with which we handle wailing babies, grumpy spouses and hour-long cooking sessions. But sometimes, we invest so much time and energy in juggling all of these activities that we forget to invest time in ourselves.

We must remember that we are not machines, that one day all the stress and exhaustion will lead to a burnout. Hence, it is necessary to take some time off to pamper ourselves and unwind. What better way to do this than to indulge in a relaxing spa experience?

Create the Ambience:
The rooms inside a spa are designed to help you unwind. Create a similar ambience by dimming the lights, surrounding your bath tub with aromatic candles, playing soothing music and cutting off noise and distractions of any kind. Keep the phone off the hook, your cell phone on silent and even place a ‘DND’ sign outside your door if you have too. Remember, this is an hour or two that you have set aside for yourself and no one has the right to rob you of even a minute.

Use sweet-smelling, luxurious products:
We end up feeling like a million bucks after a day at the spa because of all those fragrant, exquisite products that are used. So, bring home a couple of such products and set them aside only for spa days. It’s worth it to invest in these products as they’ll last you a while, allowing you to enjoy a de-stressing spa whenever you feel like.

The Body offers quality spa products like aromatic massage oils, body balms, hands & foot butter, scrubs and cream massagers. The best part about these products is that they’re organic and of the finest quality. Check out these products here: The Body Spa Products.

Massage, Moisturize and Care for your Entire Body:
Spend enough time caring for your hair, face and body. Start by massaging your scalp with a good hair oil. Oil hair stands and tips as well. Next, massage you body with a fragrant oil. Pay attention to rough areas like your elbows, knees, heels and toes. Let the oil stay on your body for half an hour. During this half an hour, let your body relax by lying down on a plastic sheet and listening to soothing music. Cover your eyes with cotton swabs soaked in rose water.

To clean your body and hair, sink into bathtub filled with warm water. Use a good shampoo and conditioner to wash your hair. For your body, use an exfoliating body scrub, like the Body Shop Olive Body Scrub to cleanse your pores and smoothen skin. Take as much time as you want to do this, as the point is to enjoy the wonderful fragrances and the comforting warm water.

Once you’ve finished in the bathtub, towel-dry yourself and slip into a luxurious terrycloth bathrobe. Apply a good hand cream like The Body Shop Wild Rose Hand Cream and a foot cream like The Body Shop Hemp Foot Protector.

Indulge in Relaxing Activities:
Spend your spa day indulging in relaxing activities like reading your favorite book, watching your favorite movie or movies, lunching on a scrumptious meal, sipping chilled wine, etc. Invite your friends over if you’re in the mood for some friendly banter. However, avoid tiring yourself or stressing yourself out too much as this is your day for feeling like a queen.
