Ahhh… the Season of Love is upon us! I feel like playing cupid and sharing some ideas on creating the right mood for Valentine’s. There’s no question that the right spa experiences can be very romantic – the serene atmosphere, the aromas, the candles, the healing touch. Whether you are going for the day to unwind, or for a week to reconnect, spas provide a very sensory experience. So why not create a spa environment at home? Whether you indulge yourself or share it with a partner, you can achieve a wonderful result.
I think it all starts with healthy eating. If you are eating properly, you will feel better about yourself. The inhibitions will come down and your mood will be elevated.
Now that we’re eating healthy, let’s have some fun and create a spa experience at home. Start by outfitting your bedroom and bathroom with some luxurious linens and towels. You don’t have to spend a lot here, just make sure they are wonderful to touch. Find other simple ways to create a spa oasis: Bring in living plants. Set out a simple tabletop water fall. Place candles within easy reach. Choose some soft, soothing music.
I think what really sets the spa experience apart is the sense of ritual they create around your visit. What is your spa ritual? Turn down the lights. Maybe light some candles. Take a hot soak in the tub or an invigorating shower. Three products I would suggest for your silkiest skin are Bamboo Ginseng Scrub, Deep Detox Ritual Mask (featuring Moroccan Rhassoul Clay for an authentic Rhassoul experience) and Olive, Fig, Shea Butter Body Cream. They can be used individually or together as a luxurious spa ritual. It’s even more fun if you share the experience with a partner. First you step into a warm shower or bath and exfoliate your body using fine grains of Bamboo. You follow with a sensuous body mask of Moroccan Rhassoul clay infused with essential oils. You rinse and finish with a complete application of the Olive, Fig, Shea Butter Body Cream for lingering results. Doesn’t that sound fantastic? And it will leave your skin stimulated and soft. That’s an updated twist on the “Calgon take me away” images of the past. So get started and create your own spa escape at home.
I would love to hear all the incredible ways you create home spa experiences, after all, it is the Season of Love!
