Looking for inspiration for having your own home spa? For most people, a day at a spa was something you did on your holidays. But today, you don’t need to travel far to indulge yourself. With the wealth of high-end, quality brands and products out there, you can easily create the ultimate spa day at home. Besides, we spend more time inside during the winter months. So, what better way to spend time indoors than in your very own home spa? Here’s how to do it…
How to prepare a perfect home spa day?
It’s not just the products you put on your body that create that home spa experience, but also what surrounds your body that’s important. In other words: it’s about the mood. With the right sounds, smells, temperature, and light, you can transform your bathroom by day into your very own home spa for your nighttime wind-down.
Start with low, warm lighting, maybe by using a candle such as the ‘Menthe Verte' scented candle from Diptyque. The scent is incredibly essential, so if candles aren’t your thing, try incense or a room spray like AESOP's Cythera Aromatique Room Spray.
What do you need for your home spa day?
The room temperature should be warm, enlivened with the steam from a hot bath or a shower. As for sound, for a traditional feel,
try Heiwa Records’ Spa Music playlist.
For something more modern, choose more dubby, hypnotic techno sounds like
Spotify’s Negative Space playlist.
Once your environment is set, now it’s time to focus on yourself…
