Dealing with a lot of stress right now?
Struggling to get enough sleep?
Looking for a way to relax?
While heading to a spa for an afternoon of massages, quiet, and relaxation may seem like the perfect solution, this is not something you can do all that often. After all, it can quickly become an expensive hobby!
However, there are specific steps you can use to recreate an authentic spa experience in your own home so that you’re able to kick back and relax after a long, stressful week!
Light some scented candles.
The first step towards recreating the spa experience in your own home is setting the mood – and candles are a great way to do this! After all, they can help you turn your bathroom or bedroom into a sweet-smelling, atmospheric oasis – a far cry from its usual chaos! Furthermore, many studies have found that “the gentle flicker of a candle flame has been shown to help relax the mind and body, reducing stress and anxiety.”
Throw on a robe.
Usually, when you arrive at a spa, whether you’re going for a massage or a dip in the pool, you’re often given a soft, luxurious robe to slip into in order to take the experience to the next level. As such, now is the perfect time to invest in your very own robe that you can wear at home. You could even take this to the next level by using embroidery equipment for towels and robes to embroider your own name onto your robe. This way, your kids or partner cannot claim it to be their own!
Play some relaxing music.
When trying to have an authentic spa experience in your home, it’s important that you’re able to create a space that feels both peaceful and tranquil – which means that you need to drown out the rest of the sounds in your house. One way to achieve this goal is to play some relaxing music during this time. Instrumental music is often your best bit, as listening to this allows you to properly shut off from the world around you instead of encouraging you to sing along to the lyrics.
Buy some bath and beauty products.
Investing in a range of bath and beauty products, such as bath bombs, salts, and oils, alongside moisturizers and face masks, will allow you to take your home spa to the next level. If you don’t feel like visiting the shops to source these products, you can always find great deals online and can sometimes save a lot of money in doing so. Alternatively, if you are so inclined, you may want to try making your own!
Either way, when setting up for your spa day and night, be sure to treat yourself to luxurious products that leave you looking, smelling, and feeling good. After all, this means you’ll come out of the experience feeling refreshed, relaxed, and rejuvenated – just as you would if you were leaving a real spa, only without having spent nearly as much money!
