I love a good spa day. My bank account – not so much! 

Not to say that it isn’t worth a splurge every now and then (as I whisper, “Treat yo’self,”) but a day at the spa is often an expense that we just can’t justify on a regular basis. 

Yet we certainly need self care and an opportunity to destress on a regular basis!

Follow these easy steps for the perfect at-home spa day. (Cue the relaxation.)

? Set the mood with music. 

Studies have repeatedly shown that music reduces anxiety (up to 65%!!) and increases relaxation by calming the nervous system. So put on your fav tunes and let the music move ya!

? Light a relaxing, aromatherapy candle. 

Our smell receptors are directly linked to our limbic system – which is where we house our emotions. Choosing a candle with a relaxing scent (lavender, chamomile, bergamot..) can lower your stress level, increase feelings of relaxation, and provide pleasure. 

? Hang fresh eucalyptus or a sachet of lavender in your shower.

Hanging either of these natural stress remedies in your shower and then running a bath or taking a shower will release the essential oils and provide you with relaxing benefits. Plus they smell good!

? Simple and super hydrating DIY face mask. 

This easy at-home facial will boost your hydration and leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. Mix ½ ripe avocado, 1 tablespoon honey, handful of oats (optional), and a tablespoon of milk (optional) and smooth over your face for 15 minutes. 

? Soak your sore muscles with DIY bath soak. 

Draw a bath and pour in ½ cup epsom salt, ½ cup pink himalayan sea salt, ½ cup baking soda, and 6-8 drops of essential oils (optional). Then relax and soak! 

Bonus Tip: Give yourself a hand massage with moisturiser before bed!

Love,
