Creating The Perfect Spa Day At Home

By Ryan Spooner

You deserve a spa day. It's a necessary break from Zoom meetings, balancing work and family, and sitting at a desk all day. With economies slowly reopening, however, going to the spa is not an option.

So, instead of going out to get the spa feeling, you can create it at home. Depending on your schedule, you can devote a day, half-day, or even an hour to rest and relaxation. Your mind, body and soul will thank you.

Experience all the stress-relieving benefits of the spa without having to leave your home with these helpful tips for creating a spa-like atmosphere.

The Sound: Calm Spa Music

We make finding calm, relaxing spa music easy. Just listen to our, you guessed it, Spa channel. It’s designed to release the tensions of the day with gentle healing and wellness music that promote a sense of warmth and serenity.

It is the first step in creating the spa feeling at home. Even if you can’t give yourself a mani, pedi, or have a warm bath, you can still listen to this channel to transport you to a calmer place.

The Smell: Candles, Diffusers & Essential Oils

Scent is a key to creating a spa environment. Just one whiff on lavender or eucalyptus, and it triggers memories of relaxation.

Enjoy your favourite scents in the way that works for you. Candle, diffuser, or some essential oil dropped in the bath or rubbed onto your wrist - keep it simple and do what works for you.

The Comfort: That Cozy Feeling

Nothing says the spa like a robe. It is the clothing equivalent of the most comforting hug ever. So, grab your coziest robe, softest towels, and some clean washcloths - it will allow you to feel pampered and put you in the spa-mindset.

The Look: Plant Power

You have been at home...a lot. That is undoubtedly an understatement. Give your home a fresh spa-feeling by adding some greenery. The easiest way to make your bathroom feel like a spa is by adding plants or a vase of flowers.

The Taste: A Luxury Beverage

Make your DIY spa session more relaxing by adding a luxurious beverage. Add a pitcher of water infused with fruit and herbs, just like your favourite spa.

The flavours are up to you: strawberries and mint, citrus and cucumbers, or berries are all some of my favourites. It provides a pampering feeling, while also keeping you hydrated. Win-win!

The Peaceful Feeling: Meditation

You are not going to feel like you are at the spa unless you can unwind and let go of work, stress, and other factors that distract your mind. Meditation can put you in the right mental space, priming you for a relaxing experience.

If you are new to meditation, our explainer on guided meditation is a great place to start. It is a great way to kick off your at-home spa visit.

The Treatments

All of the tips that we mentioned will help you set up a perfect space and atmosphere at home. Now it’s the time to spoil yourself with a treatment. This list of 10 at-home spa treatments offers a number of DIY ideas to try.

You owe it to yourself to create some time for you. A spa time at home is a great way to provide peace and calm to your life, allowing you to escape the stresses of the day-to-day and better prepare for the road ahead.
