  SPA AT HOME - by Editor
A spa treatment makes you feel new. Create the magic of spa in your bathroom with a few important accessories.


Imagine you are back from a hectic day at work and a Spa is ready to welcome you at home. Half your fatigue and stress would be gone just at the sight of it. Take the opportunity to pamper yourself and make bathing an exclusive experience. If you cannot make it to an expensive spa, create one at home. Your spa at home can be a great start to beat stress, soaking yourself in the sheer bliss of soaps and creams and step out looking ravishing.

Take a quick look on how to develop your a luxurious spa in your own bathroom. Get a pen and paper to make a list. Write down everything and double check if you forgot anything. You do not want to spoil the experience by going on a hunt to find missing things while you are dripping with foam.


Your spa accessories

Before you start a spa session at home, you will need a few important things. Check the list against your bathroom. Having a bath tub may require all the things. Find what is ideal for your bathroom and you.

  • Get some essential oils. Buy the ones you like and need
  • Buy bath salts or make your own
  • Pick natural soaps
  • Get a loofah or a back brush
  • Keep massage cream and scrubs ready
  • Set aside your favourite towels or bath robe
  • Buy some perfumed candles or tea lights
  • Collect some rose petals
  • Buy a rose water bottle
  • Order some fresh milk

Bathroom to Spa

Before you step in for a bath, you have to prepare your bathroom for the ultimate spa experience. Gather all the stuff on your list. Clear the clutter. Keep the towels on a reachable distance. Place creams, scrubs, soaps, loofah or brushes on a stool or a shelf. Add bath salts or essentials oils to your bathing water. Now place the candles at different places and light them up. If you have tea lights then light them and pour drops of aroma oils in them. You will see the aura of your bathroom transforming right in front of your eyes.

If you have a tub

If you are one of those lucky ones who have a tub in the bathroom, make the most of it. Fill up the tub with a little more than lukewarm water. Pour drops of aromatherapy oils or mentioned table spoons of bath salts as per your liking. Pour some bubble bath liquid in it. Drop some rose petals in the foamy water. You are set for a skin deep dip.


The spa treatment at home

Keep all spa accessories near you. Wear a shower cap. Sit on a tool and start massaging your body with the massaging cream. Once the cream is soaked into your skin, close your eyes and meditate for five minutes. Now use the scrub on your body. Pay attention to toes, knees and elbows. Let it stay for fifteen minutes and once the scrub starts drying pour water on your body.

Use the natural soap on your body and move the loofah in circular motions on your body. Scrub your back and heels with a brush. This helps exfoliate the skin. Once you are done, wash away. Step out of the bathroom and lather on some fresh smelling moisturiser with a few drops of aromatherapy oils. Wear something comfortable and set your creative visualization to work. Begin to de-stress your mind now. Be careful if you do not wish to sleep.

If you have a tub you can take a Cleopatra dip. Pour a litre of milk in the bath tub. People with oily skin can replace it with lemon or rose water. Follow the entire procedure of massaging and scrubbing. Now step into the tub and sink into the pool of beauty. Stay there for at least half an hour. Read a book, play some lilting music or simply meditate while your skin rejuvenates. Once done, wrap into a towel and apply water based or natural ingredient based moisturiser. Dab on some essential oil.

Had a hard day today? Treat yourself like a queen and you will feel like one. Plan a spa evening with your partner. You can relax together and have quality time right in the bathroom. You will even have help at hand for a massage. Create a spa like experience in your bathroom and bathing will no more be just about scrubbing behind the ears.

Comments:   I don’t think I want a spa at home. I do not have the time to go through and prepare so much for just a bath. It is too time consuming. I would rather just go for a massage. I have a small bathroom and I don’t think I can really accommodate music, candle lights and other spa accessories and stay in the bathroom for so long. It is usually a quick bath for me and I am off to the daily chores. I do get spa facials done and I have also heard about the spa treatment for hair. I want to try the spa treatment for hair. My salon expert always recommends it to me.

Comments:   I think spa treatment is a great way to relax all those tense nerves. I tried one at a resort and all the noisy thoughts in my mind just stopped. It was complete bliss. The masseur was excellent and I can still remember all the pressure points that she massaged. I bought a spa kit from there and gifted it to one of my friends on her anniversary. It had a nice mix of oils, bath salts, natural soaps, moisturisers and my friend really love it. She called it a spa in a box. I think everyone must try the spa treatment once just to see how good it can get.

Comments:   I together with my pals came looking at the excellent tactics located on your website and so all of the sudden got an awful suspicion I had not thanked the site owner for those strategies. All the people are already certainly glad to read through them and have sincerely been enjoying those things. Appreciation for actually being really thoughtful and then for choosing varieties of excellent subject matter most people are really needing to be aware of. Our own honest apologies for not expressing gratitude to you earlier.
