A day at the spa – without leaving home!

A day at the spa without leaving home!

How to have a spa day at home?

We can’t remind you enough of the importance of taking time for yourself, if only to make your own products and use them!

Today we suggest you treat yourself to a day at the spa – without leaving the comfort of your home. In the privacy of your own home, you can create the environment of your dreams: complete silence or relaxing music, a candle or candles for a soothing flame or a bewitching scent, soft light or complete darkness, or an enchanting blend of essential oils wafting through the house.

Do this alone if you need to shut out the world for a moment of calm relaxation or with your favourite people: friends, your partner, your mother, or your daughter! Use this time to recharge your batteries in the most enjoyable way possible.

6 recipes to relax at home

Begin by taking a traditional long, hot bath. For this we suggest you try our milk baths. If you prefer the invigorating spray of the shower, you’ll want to try our salt scrub recipe.
