Home Spa! Great Idea.


Ooooo, ahh, any day is a great day at the spa.Feeling a bit out of it lately? In need of a full body massage? A visit to your favorite spa would be great. Can't take the time out of your busy schedule today? No worries, let's keep it in house. You can create your own spa-like environment and at least take a nice long soak in the tub.

Follow these tips to transform your bathroom into an enticing oasis of rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.

Clear the Clutter

Reduce your bathroom’s daily clutter and replace it with just a few strategically-placed items. Replace your facial tissues or toothbrush holder, for example, with a photo of a loved one or treasured scene that makes you smile and warms your heart. Add life to the room with a simple flower arrangement or sprout of lucky bamboo, and place your washcloths in a ceramic bowl to create the spa look. (You can always put your daily stuff back after your spa experience is over).

Calm with Colour

Researchers have found that colours of the night such as blues, indigos and violets can decrease blood pressure, pulse and respiration rates. Place candles in coloured glass holders around your bathroom that will make it glow with a warm night tone that calms you.

Scent Therapy

No spa environment would be a spa environment with out the beautiful scents of essential oils. Whether they're in a blend or used as single notes, essential oils can transform your spa environment into a world of aromatic essence. A drop or two into your bath water, on your towels or the perfect diffuser, essential oils can enhance the calming effect of your spa.

Soothe with Sound

Not everyone likes sound or music in the background in their spa environment. If you do, bring your smartphone with you and select music that stimulates serenity and transports your mind to a comfortable and carefree place. Soft orchestral music, Native American flute, spiritual chants and nature sounds like ocean waves or forest rains are popular choices at spas and yoga retreats. Add the calming effect of tumbling water by using an inexpensive portable fountain, the kind made for indoor use.

Indulge with Extras

Treat yourself to plush, high-quality bath towels, robes and slippers, and reserve them for your home-spa days so they maintain that new feeling. Invest in a towel-warming rack or get your towels nice and toasty in the dryer right before you slip into the tub so you can enjoy the after-glow of a good soak just a while longer. Did you know that you can keep your towels warm by placing them into a crock pot? Okay, it has to be one of the bigger crock pots.

Top off your indulgence with a steaming cup of herbal tea and a piece of intense dark chocolate to bring your taste buds into the sensual experience.

You've got all the right elements in place, not all you have to do is use them. With some creative thinking, a few inexpensive items and the right attitude, you can transform your bathroom into the perfect place to unwind and celebrate the simple joys of life.

That's it for this week!

Life Never Smelled So Sweet!
