7 Ways to Recreate the Spa Experience at HomePosted April 15, 2019 by Sue Prichard
Although you may want to go to the spa every single weekend, in reality, that’s just not possible. Whether it’s down to location or the cost to attend, going to the spa on a regular basis is definitely just a dream. All is not lost though, as there are plenty of ways to relax and create your own spa feeling at home, even if you’re on a budget. Although it won’t be as good as the real deal, you’ll feel much happier having done everything you can to relax and pamper yourself.
To help you get started, here are 7 ways to recreate the spa feeling at home:
– Purchase Your Favourite Spa Products Online
One of the best things about going to the spa is all of the incredible products that they use. Whilst they’re probably out of reach for a day-to-day budget, they’re definitely worth purchasing for your own home spa treatments. Whether it’s your favourite brand of moisturiser or your favourite exfoliator, even just the scents will be another to transport you to a more relaxing space.

– Buy A Diffuser To Help Create That Spa Aroma
Another great thing about visiting a spa is that there is a constantly a gorgeous smell emulating from the building. Whether you’re in a massage room, at the pool or walking through the corridors you will be able to enjoy that classic spa smell. Whilst you probably won’t be able to recreate it completely, you can come pretty close with a relaxing diffuser. Make sure you’re buying scents that are relaxing and calming, as you don’t want to use something that is too energetic when you’re trying to relax.
– Stock Up On Mud Masks, Moisturiser
There are lots of different treatments available at a spa, most of which you can recreate at home. Although you won’t have the massage therapist and spa staff there to make you feel 100% relaxed, you will be able to treat your skin with masks and moisturisers. The best thing to do is to stock up on a range of different products so you can decide which treatment you’re going to do on the day you’re recreating your spa. Often you don’t feel as though you need entire mud mask and sticking a face mask on and relaxing in the bath can feel just as good.
– Buy Wax Melts And Candles That Remind You Of The Spa
Similar to the diffuser, wax melts and candles can give you that spa smell without the cost of a day ticket. Buy scents that are reminiscent of the aromatherapy rooms and sauna, focussing mainly on sandalwood based melts. The great thing about wax melts and candles is that they’re incredibly affordable and it’s super easy to change the scent you’re using whenever you fancy a change. After all, a melt that reminds you of the spa isn’t going to help when it comes to getting any work done.
– Research Essential Oils And How They Can Help
If you have ever had a massage when visiting the spa you will know how powerful essential oils can be. Based on your needs they can help soothe and calm your body, repair any tension and damage that you may be feeling. Their scent alone is enough to send you into a calming state, with the healing properties lasting as long as 48 hours after you have received your treatment. Whilst you won’t be able to have a full treatment in your own home, massaging essential oil into your pulse points is a good place to start.
– Run Yourself A Rexlaing Hot Bath
Recreating a spa at home will mean you’re less likely to be able to jump into the hot tub and whirlpool, but you can run yourself a relaxing hot bath. It definitely doesn’t feel the same, but it can be incredibly relaxing when enjoyed with a glass of wine and a book. For more tips when it comes to enjoying a hot bath, you can visit this site here.
– Find A Spa Playlist Online
Finally, to complete your home spa you’re going to need a spa playlist. All this requires is a list of music that relaxes and soothes you, getting you in a calm state of mind. The best thing to do is check places like Spotify and Apple Music for spa playlists, as chances are there are plenty for you to choose from already.
