Why You And Your Partner Should Treat Yourselves To At-Home Spa Days

Looking for something you and your partner can do to de-stress at home? Consider taking a moment to step away from your busy schedule and take some time to focus on yourself for few hours.

It is great to take a day off from work or home to visit a spa, but there are times when you need immediate relief. By giving yourself some much-needed pampering at home, you can take some time to relax and reduce stress while saving money. Pampering each other with body massages and essential oils, or taking a mineral-rich bath, is the perfect way to unwind. Your whole body will be delighted!

The Benefits Of Having An At-Home Spa

You can now utilize the benefits of heated water, buoyancy, and massage to their fullest, which in turn provides you with physical and psychological benefits. Here are the main reasons or benefits why you and your partner should treat yourselves to at-home spa days.

·        Reduces Stress

Relaxation is the main reason why people go to a spa. It's like having a hot bath on another level and imagining yourself sitting in your home spa, soaking in therapeutic waters, warming yourself up in warm, bubbling water. In reality, this is actually beneficial to your well-being. This is a helpful way to eliminate the negative energy from the day's activities, like work, school, or just about anything. Relaxing in a spa can relieve the strain on shoulders and neck muscles that can also manifest as stress symptoms.

·        Enhances Mood And Happiness

You can increase your sense of happiness and elevate your mood by having regular spa sessions at home. Given the tight schedules, work pressure, and other stresses you encounter during the day, this is actually a good thing. Taking regular spa tub dips helps you relax and regain your positive and vibrant mood. As a result, the body releases serotonin, a natural chemical associated with happiness and a good mood. It's good to have a natural mood stabilizer as a home spa because the effects last a long time. This will lead you to feel happy, positive, and upbeat for the whole day and following days.

·        Ensures Better Blood Circulation

Your home spa's heat increases blood flow by relaxing the tissue surrounding arthritic joints. A gentle stretching activity in a non-weight bearing environment allows for increased circulation around the joints, thereby reducing stiffness and inflammation. If you suffer from a muscle injury or pain, immersing yourself in hot, therapeutic spa water can improve blood circulation around the affected area, reducing swelling, bruises, and discomfort. Additionally, improved blood circulation throughout the body may benefit the heart. When blood vessels are dilated by hot spa water, the heart can function as efficiently as it can. This therapeutic dip can benefit those with cardiovascular conditions.

·        Aids In Slowing The Aging Process

Many of us spend a lot of money on spa treatments that have anti-aging properties. There are many spas that offer facials, but it can be pretty expensive to find one that offers a full-body rejuvenation and anti-aging treatment. Instead of focusing on just one area, getting personalized home spa treatments can offer general rejuvenation and anti-aging benefits that your whole body can enjoy, including inside and outside.

·        Helps You Sleep Better

For those who have difficulty sleeping, a spa at home can be a great solution. With your at-home spa treatments, you can get that focused massage, especially on those areas that are stiff and uncomfortable. It relaxes your muscles, lowers your blood pressure, and normalizes your heart rate, all of which induce a light, comfortable feeling that gets you to sleep well.

·        It Is An Excellent Way To Unwind And Socialize

Having a readily available home spa gives you that much-needed respite from work, family, and friends and allows you to relax, meditate and free yourself from negative energies. Alternatively, you can share your home spa with someone special or a close friend. As you bond with friends or your significant other, the calming and therapeutic water of the spa serves to be both physical and social therapy. The benefits of your home spa are sure to benefit not only you but anyone who takes part.

·        A Detoxifier That Supports Weight Loss

This dual benefit of a home spa makes it a desirable choice for people on a busy schedule who do not often have the time to go to the gym to work out. High temperatures in the spa open skin pores, stimulate the lymphatic system, and help the body rid itself of toxins, which burn calories. Furthermore, oil massages effectively loosen and break down subcutaneous fat, making a home spa an ideal fitness companion. To get the most out of spa sessions at home, you should exercise and eat healthily.

·        Maintains Healthy Skin

Regularly bathing in the waters of your home spa will give you a healthy glow and firmer skin. Before or after bathing in the spa, mineral-enriched water, gentle exfoliating treatments can be applied directly to your skin to enhance its health and beauty. It achieves a polished and clean appearance, encourages cell regeneration, refines pores, and gives your skin a soothing escape from pollution and harmful irritants. In addition, oxygen absorption promotes the regeneration of skin cells by removing dead cells. It is best to schedule your spa treatment in the late afternoon or evening before or after sunset so that there is minimal sun exposure and you can give your skin a boost of oxygen.

How To Make An At-Home Spa For You And Your Partner

Enjoying your favorite spa treatments is easy without leaving the comfort of your own home. There are a number of treatment options that can easily be prepared at home with minimal effort. Follow the following steps for having a great at-home spa alone or with your partner. I recommend you to grab your H.E.A.L's Lavender Spa Kit to make your at-home spa more relaxing and enjoyable. H.E.A.L's Lavender Spa Kit includes:

Step 1: Get In The Mood

To begin with, set the mood at home by recreating a spa-like atmosphere! Find relaxation music on your favorite streaming service by searching for pre-made playlists. 

Smells make the spa feel relaxing, so be sure to bring a diffuser with you! Aromatizing with lavender essential oil can be very relaxing. Take three deep breaths of HEAL's Lavender Essential Oil to combat stress and anxiety. There is perhaps no better scent than lavender for relieving tension and allowing you to relax. For a more lasting effect, breathe in the scent or apply a little bit of oil to your wrists.

Step 2: Be Sure To Include Amenities

Now that you've recreated the aromas and sounds of the spa, it's time to gather the spa accessories that will truly make your at-home spa experience more enjoyable! Make sure to grab your fluffy bath towels, your best bathrobe, and your favorite slippers.

Step 3: Exfoliate Your Skin With A Coffee Scrub

Similar to salt and sugar, coffee grounds are excellent exfoliators at home. Add 1/4 cup olive oil to 1/4 cup granulated white sugar and 1/2 cup coffee grounds to make this full-body scrub. While you're in the shower, use the scrub all over your body to get super-soft skin and a burst of energy.

Step 4: Rejuvenate Your Lips

With a warm, wet washcloth, gently cleanse your lips. After that, rub a mixture of honey (1 tsp) and brown sugar (2 tsp) onto your lips in small, circular motions to remove dead skin cells. After rinsing and drying your lips, lock in moisture by applying your favorite lip balm.

Step 5: Steaming Your Face

Facial steam simply requires a pot of hot water and HEAL's Lavender Essential Oil. Boil the water in a pot while you wash your face. As soon as the water reaches boiling, reduce heat slightly, add a couple of drops of HEAL's Lavender Essential Oil, then place your face 6-10 inches above the surface of the water. As a result of the steam, your pores will open, loosen dirt, and blood flow will increase in your face. Enjoy the aroma of the oil for additional relaxation.

Step 6: Apply A Banana-Honey Face Mask

It will surely benefit your skin if you can resist the temptation to eat the mask! Potassium and vitamin C in bananas helps hydrate your skin. Skincare serums often contain vitamin C, which brightens dull or sun-damaged skin. With a fork, mash the banana. Then combine with a tablespoon of honey and some lemon juice. Spread generously over your face and allow it to rest for 20-30 minutes. After rinsing, pat the skin dry.

Step 7: Apply A Cold Compress To Your Eyes

This classic treatment is a must for any at-home spa experience. Slice a cucumber thinly, put it in the fridge, and place it gently over your closed eyelids. To replace a cucumber, use two iced tea bags! Applying cold compresses to the eyes helps reduce puffiness and makes you appear more awake and refreshed. In addition, it's just lovely to do.

Step 8: Massage Your Body With ŐSIMAGNESIUM Oil

Spray the Magnesium Oil directly on your body or onto achy muscles and massage gently. When you are having an at-home spa with your partner, both of you can give a full body massage to each other. This step will reduce muscle pain and cramps throughout your body. What's more, ŐSIMAGNESIUM Oil delivers a large amount of elemental magnesium into the body that your body needs to relax, rejuvenate and revive.

Step 9: Apply Manicure-Ready Cuticle Cream

Nails that are healthy and beautiful, begin with moisturized cuticles. Dry, cracked skin has long been treated with petroleum jelly. Add ½ tsp of olive oil and a splash of H.E.A.L's lemon essential oil to 2 tsp of petroleum jelly and apply over your cuticles. This manicure-ready cream will moisturize your cuticles.

Step 10: Nourish Your Hair With Sesame Oil

How can we forget about the hair? Here is a tip for protecting your hair from the sun while nourishing it. Apply a few teaspoons of sesame oil to your hair and scalp. In addition to providing sun protection, it enriches your hair.

Step 11: Soak In The Tub

At this stage, it is advisable to take a bath or shower to clean up the mess. Taking a soak in the tub is the best way to get cleaned up at the end of a relaxing spa day to get cleaned up. Add OSI Magnesium Bath Flakes into your hot bathtub and take a long soak in it while relaxing both your mind and body.  OSI Magnesium Bath Flakes are made up of Magnesium Chloride.

Several body functions rely on chloride electrolytes, an element absent in Epsom salt. The chloride in the body manages the fluid around and within the cells. It boosts skin hydration while you soak in the tub. Skin pores allow the chloride electrolyte to enter the epidermis. By balancing electrical neutrality in the blood, chloride also helps maintain pH levels. Similarly, chloride plays an essential role in maintaining blood pressure and blood volume for optimal nutrient absorption.

Step 12: Use Lavender Ear Candles

After the bath, apply OSI Magnesium Body Lotion all over your body to hydrate and moisturize your skin. Then use H.E.A.L's Lavender Ear Candles to give your body the ultimate relaxation.

Step 13: Wear Bodytox Lavender Sleep Patches

To complete the perfect spa day, wear Bodytox Lavender Sleep Patches. While we pamper ourselves, remember not to neglect our feet, as we spend all day on our feet! Make sure your feet are covered with Bodytox Lavender Sleep Patches before you go to bed. Bodytox Lavender Sleep Patches are a relaxing product designed with organic ingredients to help you relax and ease into a night of rest free from disturbances and discomfort. Breath a few more breaths of H.E.A.L's Lavender Essential Oil. Slip into bed and enjoy your good night's sleep.

The Bottom Line

The at-home spa alone or with your partner is the ultimate delight for your whole body. Additionally, it relaxes your mind and soul. So, there you have it. You can have a spa day at home by following the steps mentioned in this blog post. I hope you have a little time to rest and relax during this week. You'll be amazed at how energized, refreshed, and renewed you'll feel afterward!
