If you enjoy the feeling of going to a spa but don’t have time or the money, why not make a ‘spa experience’ at home? I have a few easy suggestions that make a spa experience at home. I thought about my spa experiences and discovered a few things I could do at home.
First, Schedule It!
Check your schedule and block out a time when you can devote an hour or more to pampering. When you book an appointment at a spa you have to schedule the time and drive to the location. Treat your at home spa experience as an appointment, schedule it!
2. Gather all your ‘Spa Luxuries’ in advance
Have a box or spot in the linen closet to store all you ‘spa items’ away from the everyday bathroom items. When it comes time for your ‘appointment’ you won’t spend time searching for them. When you pull out that spa bundle you will know its time for some pampering!
3. Spa Luxury – A Beautiful, All cotton, Spa Robe
As you are preparing for your experience and afterward, you will want a spa robe that is 100% cotton and beautiful too. The robe will make you feel beautiful and be comfortable for relaxing after your spa experience. At 3 Graces Design Studio we make kimono style spa robes that would be perfect for your spa experience but practical enough to wear everyday because our 100% cotton robes are machine washable. A luxury that you will enjoy for years.
4. Spa Luxury- A Handmade Soap or ‘Bath Bomb’
Find a nice handmade soap that has a wonderful scent and makes you feel like you’re in a spa. If your bath space is shared, you could keep it in your spa box just for you! Pick a soap that is natural without preservatives or additives. You want to make the experience healthful and nourishing to your skin. We feature Diamond Bird Soaps with our kimono style spa robes for their pure and simple ingredients. Add one to your kimono order under Spa Experience.
5. Spa Luxury- A plush bath towel
One of the things I have always found appealing about spa experiences is the towels! Thick and soft, the towels make it feel special. I realized the towels I was using, were old, I had them for years and although they were good quality, they lost their plush feel. I bought a bath sheet, a larger towel, in a plush almost velvet feel. This is my special spa towel. You only need the ‘one special’ spa towel, so splurge and get one that feels like a luxury.
These are just a few of the simple things that you can do to create a Spa Experience at Home. Of course you can add decorative touches like candles or rose petals to step up the spa feeling a notch. But these 5 suggestions will give you a starting point toward enjoying a spa experience without leaving home.
