Spring cleaning doesn’t have to just apply to your home. We all need a little pampering every now and then, and a home spa day provides just the opportunity for rest and relaxation. The problem, of course, is searching through the seemingly endless product options that are available online. Instead of overwhelming yourself with choices, take a look at some of these tried and true products for a luxurious spa session without ever leaving your house:
I’ve talked in previous blogs about the benefits of Weleda arnica massage oil. This unique oil combines sunflower and olive oil with the arnica flower, a sunflower cousin that has major medical benefits. It’s been used to alleviate everything from a flaky scalp to inflammation, making this massage oil the perfect tool for your at-home spa day. Simply massage the oil into your skin after bathing. Arnica flowers are also known for their appealing scent.
Speaking of scents, essential oils dispersed through a diffuser or the use of bath products containing essential oils can promote further relaxation as you soak away the day. Ylang ylang, lavender, sandalwood, jasmine, rose, and camomile are some favourites for calming the mind and soothing the body. Just remember not to actually drop essential oils directly into the water without diluting them with what is known as a carrier oil (such as jojoba or olive oil) first! Otherwise, you may end up with skin irritation — not exactly the kind of relaxing home spa day you were planning.
Essential Bath Products
A warm soak requires the right bath products, and Weleda doesn’t only offer an amazing massage oil. You can also try their creamy lavender body wash. This is a fragrant wash that combines organic lavender with sesame seed oil to soothe and restore. Other Weleda body wash options include wild rose, pomegranate, citrus, and sea buckthorn washes, all designed to provide excellent aromatherapy benefits and nourish your skin.
Remember Your Feet With a Foot Spa and Pedicure Tools
Our feet work hard everyday, but we often forget about them until they’re sore and achy. Pamper them with a high-quality foot spa to ease the ache, improve circulation, and help you unwind. Don’t forget to include a foot soak, like this tea tree oil therapeutic foot soak, and to finish up with a pumice stone and favourite lotion. Aloe, in particular, is a terrific choice for feet.
Relax with a Quality Robe
