Wouldn’t you love a daily spa experience? Lush bathrobes. Soothing music. And some body pampering? The truth is that there is a lot of GOOD that comes from some spa experiences. It’s a lovely way to “thank” your body. But of course, going to the spa on a regular basis is not only expensive, but you never know if the products used are really safe for your body.
Good news! Creating your own spa-like experience is super easy, luxurious, and healthy with these 16 Amazing homemade spa treatments.
First, set the mood:
One of the glorious aspects of the spa is the stress-reducing mood. Don’t just think of it as a nice bonus. Taking some time to reduce the noises around us, dim the lights, and go inward is super beneficial for our health. Here are a few things you can do at home to make your diy spa experience even more wonderful:
1. Diffuse some essential oils. Not only can smell change our moods, but there are a lot of benefits to aromatherapy. Just be sure you don’t try to replicate healthy aromatherapy by using toxic candles, okay? (Learn how to get your hands on an amazing home diffuser and quality essential oils here.)
2. Drink a glass of refreshing lemon water. Many spa treatments focus on gentle detox practices. Starting your experience with some lemon water is a simple way to give your body a little boost. Plus, it’s always wise to stay hydrated.
3. Take five deep cleansing breaths. Take a deep breath in, allowing your abdominal to expand gently. Hold it for a moment or two before exhaling. Repeat 5 times. This will lower your blood pressure, relax your muscles, tune your mind inward, and prepare you for the goodness to come.
4. Add some mood music. Pick something that will calm your senses and help you enjoy the pampering.
