Turn even the most stress-filled day into true warmth with the luxury of a home spa. You will feel the difference, instantly!

When you find the time to pamper yourself, even just a little bit at a time, stress will just melt from your body.

Here are some really simple and creative personal home spa tips that will have you feeling like a million bucks in no time at all!

Let’s Prepare For Your Home Spa Experience:

No need to leave your home.

  • Go for your robe and slippers.
  • Find a soothing CD that you love.
  • Find a scented candle.
  • Find a washcloth, loofah sponge, bath brush or any skin exfoliation tool.
  • Find a fluffy cotton towel.
  • Find bath salts and/or essential aromatic oils.
  • Find skin cleansers, toners and moisturizers.
  • Find coarse sea salt.
  • From the kitchen, go for chilled spring water (with a splash of lime or lemon) in the fanciest glass you can find.
  • Fix a cup of green tea


  • Release everything about your busy day…any obligations…all responsibilities…let go of the stress… and strain.
  • Quiet your mind! Relax.
  • Welcome Yourself to Your At Home Spa Experience!
  • Slow down all thoughts. Slow down your breath and all your movements. Relax.
  • Put on your favourite mood music.
  • Begin your bath now, slipping in your favourite salt or oil.
  • Light your candles. Watch as they begin to burn….slowly….purposefully. Smell the beauty of the scent. Breathe in deeply.
  • Run your hands through your bath. Feel the oils, the salts.
  • Enter into your bath and feel the luxury of it as the water envelopes your entire body!
  • Wet your washcloth and then cover both your face and neck and then stop to compress for five minutes. Repeat this three more times.
  • Gently, slowly towel dry and finish your face with an anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory facial splash.
  • It is time now to rejuvenate the skin, eliminate waste, alleviate stress, enhance your mood, restore vitality and facilitate the regeneration of new, healthy cells.
  • Now, as your face is just tingling and refreshed, it is time for a basic body scrub and cleansing.
  • Try the freshness of lavender. Scrub your entire body free of all stress and concerns.
  • Scrub using gentle circular movements.
  • Next, mix a tablespoon of ground sea salt with 2 drops of your favourite essential oil.
  • Add water to make a paste that spreads easily.
  • Apply it to your entire body and slowly slough off the dead skin with big circular strokes. This will greatly cleanse the pores and help your body get rid of any toxins.
