7 Affordable, Easy & Natural At-Home Spa Ideas
Carve out a day, afternoon or evening for any of these easy, relaxing, DIY, homemade spa treatments. It’s time for a relaxing break - without breaking the bank! Who says you need to spend heaps of money in order to get the ultimate spa? Relaxation and rejuvenation lies within just a few natural recipes that require minimal ingredients. So go on, you deserve it!
Set the mood
Start by finding a quiet space, closing the curtains and dimming the lights. Next, cut out any additional distractions - such as paperwork, bills, and anything else that screams errands. After this, you can accentuate, by adding candles, greenery, or anything else that calms you. Think nature, quietude, and comfort.
Do a deep breathing exercise
Relaxation is key to any spa experience. Besides shutting out bright lights, and distractions, a moment of just focusing on taking slow, deep breaths will do wonders. Deep breathing reduces stress and lowers blood pressure, and can also help relieve body aches and pains.
Soak in epsom bath salts
Do you have sore feet or tense muscles? Soak in a warm bath with epsom salt for relief and detoxing. Some of the benefits of epsom salts are alleviation of headaches, muscle tension, reduced stress, and improvement of your circulatory health. Simply add one cup of epsom salts to a warm bath and enjoy!
Apply a natural hair mask
Pamper yourself with one of these hair-restoring masks. Ingredients like coconut oil, avocado, honey and banana can help heal those split ends and hydrate your hair, making it look and feel softer, stronger and healthier overall.
DIY soothing face mask
A coconut oil and honey facial can do magic for your skin. Combined together, it will hydrate, clean and brighten your complexion. Don’t have either of these ingredients on hand? There are a variety of other homemade facials to choose from!
Soak your feet
While you’ve got the face mask on, soak your feet in a nice warm foot soak. DIY with just sea salt, epsom salt, baking soda, and your choice of essential oil. See the full recipe for more details.
Have glass of cucumber water
In case you didn’t already know, cucumbers have incredible benefits: rich in potassium, vitamin B, magnesium, antioxidants, and electrolytes, all while hydrating and soothing your skin at once. Add sliced cucumber to your water and refrigerate it overnight - it makes the perfect refreshment to sip on while you enjoy your at-home spa.
