How to Create a Luxurious Spa Experience at Home

Does your heart say yes to a luxury spa retreat, but your wallet says no? Well, you can satisfy both by bringing the spa straight to your home! Here are a few tried-out tips for a luxury and relaxing home pampering experience.

Start your spa experience on the right note 
Before you jump into your bath or start any pampering treatment, make sure to find your inner peace and get into the right frame of mind. So, prepare a nice cup of herbal tea or opt for a glass of wine or champagne and enjoy it in a different room. Take your time to savor the taste and the experience, and feel as your body and mind relax and unwind. Once you feel ready, step into your bathroom or improvised spa area.

Munch on something light and healthy 
You know what they say: you are what you eat! So, make sure to fill your tummy with something healthy and light before you start your pampering. Just the idea of eating clean will make you feel better and inspire you to further take care of your body. So, chop up some fruit for a sweet fruit salad or prepare crunchy crudités with a light dip. If you’re feeling very fancy, strawberries dipped in chocolate will make you feel like a guest at the most exclusive spa retreat!

Boost relaxation with scents 
One of the best things about spas is all the delicious smells that flow around. They are not too strong and not too light, and they always seem to strike just the right chord that helps you relax. Luckily, today we have many scented products that can make your entire home smell like the most exclusive spa! Opt for violet, lavender, rose or sandalwood candles and diffusers for the best relaxation experience. Pro tip: some manufacturers of quality home fragrance in Australia also offer monthly subscriptions that deliver candles right to your doorstep every month! You’ll never run of delicious smells ever again. 

Try out a new treatment 
Spas are all about beautifying, so find a new and interesting treatment and give it a shot! Rejuvenate your face with a steam facial or make your hair smooth and silky with a homemade deep conditioner. You can also turn your shower into a real sauna by setting it on the hottest temperature and letting it run for 10 minutes.

Freshen up your cozy wear 
A soft embrace of a new towel, your fluffy bathrobe and your warm bath slippers can be a perfect way to end your pampering session in the bathroom! So, if your towels have seen some better days, it’s time to replace them with something new and better. Also, give your feet a little present and get some new slippers! Retain that same cozy feeling after you leave your bathroom by wrapping up in a snug blanket to keep you warm while you enjoy your favorite TV show.

Add a touch of warmth
Do you get goosebumps just from thinking about stepping onto your cold tiles after a nice bath or shower? Well, most of us do! So, if you want to stop this horror from ever happening again, you can invest in radiant heat floors. They work very well on tiles, stone and even laminate and give your feet a warm welcome after you’re done with your pampering session in the tub. If you’re not ready for such a big investment, opt for a more practical towel warmer. Models that come with drawers can also keep your bathrobe, slippers and pajamas nice and toasty!

Play some chill music 
Music has an amazing effect on the human brain! Different music, however, has different effects—pop and rock’n’roll can make you feel energetic and happy while jazz boosts relaxation and releases stress. So, turn on some classical music and let smooth jazz flow gently in the background while you enjoy your bath or simply relax in your living room.

A luxury spa experience like this will get you feeling relaxed and looking radiant for the summer. And all that without even leaving your cozy home!
