Spending a day at a spa leaves you feeling relaxed, refreshed, and all around
incredible. But they also come with a price tag that puts them out of reach on a daily or
even weekly basis. It is possible to enjoy a spa day without the expensive price tag,
though: a spa day at home. Here are some ways you can recreate the spa day
experience at home.
Light Scented Candles
One of the greatest benefits of an at home spa day is that you can use your favorite
scented candles to truly customize the experience. Get several of your favorite scented
candles and scatter them throughout the house. Light them and enjoy the soothing
fragrance, soft light, and gentle warmth they provide.
Stock up on Supplies
Hit up the drug store, big box store, or supermarket and stock up on all the things you
need for a spa day: face masks, creamy lotions, luxurious shampoo and conditioner,
manicure and pedicure supplies (including a stunning color of polish), and some
cucumbers or fruit to flavor your water. Get some fragrant oil for a massage, if you’ve
got a friend or partner who’s going to participate. Don’t forget the bubble bath so you
can luxuriate in a nice, warm tub.
Don’t Forget the Music
Atmosphere and ambience are everything. If hardcore heavy metal or pop music is your
thing, go for it. But for a truly spa-like experience, go for some soft, soothing classical,
or perhaps some Enya. If you have a full-house speaker system, this would be ideal, so
you can hear your music throughout the house. Otherwise, create a custom playlist on
your phone, connect it to a Bluetooth speaker, and move it around with you.
Take Your Time
In today’s busy world, we have a tendency to rush through everything. Even when
there’s a day off, errands or even reading a book tends to be hurried through. For this to
be a true spa day, you need to kick back and take your time. Savor each experience of
the day. Soak in the bubble bath. Enjoy the massage for as long as possible. Apply the
face mask and truly focus on how it feels. Don’t double up on things – don’t be tempted
to apply the face mask while you soak in the tub. Let each individual experience be its
own and pay attention to all the smells, sights, sounds, textures, and feelings each
Get Rid of all Distractions
Make sure you won’t be disturbed. Turn off your phone, your tablet, and your computer.
Turn the ringer down on your landline, and consider disconnecting the doorbell. Leave
the TV off, and let the newspaper wait. Ignore the outside world and focus on your spa
day. Let yourself relax and rejuvenate by giving yourself a complete break from daily
A spa day at home can be just as relaxing and soothing as a day spent at a professional
spa. With planning and thought, and the intention to truly enjoy it, you can create an
experience that’s as rich and pleasurable as any you’ve had at a spa. Treat yourself and
enjoy the solitude and tranquility of being in the comfort of your own home as you
