Nourrissez votre peau
Bringing the spa to your home doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all of your favourite go-to treatments. In fact, it simply means you can personalise them completely to your satisfaction.
If you’re looking to achieve glowing, soft and hydrated skin, you can create your own lavender body scrub to rejuvenate your body and unclog your pores. Simply mix half a cup of Epsom salt with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 10 drops of lavender essential oil. Apply your essential oil body scrub in circular motions all over your body before rinsing with warm water. Your skin will immediately be left noticeably softer and smoother after just one application and you’ll find that the benefits will last for days.
Once you’ve completed your scrub treatment, it’s time to moisturise your skin. Add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to a carrier oil such as jojoba oil and massage the mixture into your body. You’ll be left with silky-soft skin while prolonging the sumptuous spa aroma for the rest of the day.
Soignez vos pieds
After being on your feet all day, they’re bound to need a treat. There’s nothing more rewarding than soaking your aching feet in a soothing foot bath. This is a great way to alleviate any muscle tension or soreness that has accumulated throughout the day.
For a spa-quality foot bath, fill a container with warm water and add half a cup of Epsom salt and 5 to 10 drops of peppermint essential oil. Peppermint contains menthol which has a natural cooling effect on muscles. This helps reduce inflammation, pain and various ailments which could be causing discomfort to your feet. Whilst you soak your feet, take the opportunity to relax back onto a cushion and read a few pages of a mindfulness book, allowing your mind to escape from reality.
After your foot bath, it’s time to treat your feet to a foot massage. Mix a few drops of lavender essential oil with a carrier oil such as jojoba oil, then massage the mixture into your feet. The calming aroma of lavender is the perfect way to end your foot treatment, leaving your feet feeling relaxed and soothed.
Dorlotez votre visage
If you dream of having skin that feels both nourished and cleansed, don’t forget to enjoy a facial steam treatment whilst enjoying your relaxing spa day at home. Add 3-5 drops of your favourite essential oil to a bowl or jug of boiling water and gently place a warm towel over both your head and the bowl. Enjoy taking some deep breaths over the bowl for around 3 minutes, allowing your senses to be relieved and your skin to breathe.
Both eucalyptus and tea tree essential oils are great choices for deep decongestion as well as helping to clear problematic acne-prone skin. If you suffer from oily skin, rosemary has impressive soothing properties, calming the pores of your skin as well as your mind.
Everybody needs a bit of spa time now and again. It allows you to clear your mind, relax your body and rediscover what’s really important to you. Luckily, you don’t need to go to a spa to have this experience - it’s perfectly possible to experience the relaxation of a spa from your own home anytime you please.
Your home spa day should be completely personalised to your individual likes and needs, catering to both your body and mind. By selecting and combining spa essential oils that will recharge and restore your body, you’ll enable it to continue to work at its best whilst giving you a feeling of serene positivity.
By immersing yourself in true peace and happiness within your own home, you will finish the day feeling restored and rejuvenated, ready to take on life, whatever it may bring. And not only that, you’ll create a home and a life for yourself that you don’t feel the need to vacation from.
