Easy DIY At-Home Bath and Body Spa Treatments

Pinterest recently revealed that over half (56%) of American respondents feel the need to incorporate more self-care into their lives as they prepare for fall; such as eat more healthily (42%), exercising more/ adopting a new fitness regime (36%), and taking care of their bodies (36%). While investing in efforts to have more “me time” or “self-care routines” why not invite a few friends over and create a rejuvenating, spa-level experience in the comfort of your home. Here are a few you can start with!

Pamper Yourself For A Day Spa At Home

1) DIY AT-HOME STEAM AND SAUNA

Treating your body to a steam or sauna is an incredible way to boost your body’s natural detoxification processes. That’s because the heat stimulates the nervous, immune and circulatory systems, and then toxins are eliminated through sweating. But did you also know that you can boost these benefits when you combine it with essential oils and hydrosols?

Most people go to a gym or health spa to sit in a sauna, but you can easily create your own at home without the cost or travel. Follow these steps:

  • Choose the smallest bathroom in your house because you can generate the heat and steam more quickly than in a larger bathroom.
  • Just in case you get too hot and need to cool off keep a clean wash cloth at the ready soaking in a plastic or metal bowl filled with ice cold water. Alternatively bring your spritzer (see DIY recipes below) right into the steam or sauna and spray it liberally all over your body.
  • Shut the doors and use towels to block spaces where air may escape out.
  • Plug your bathtub drain and run hot water in it. Be careful not to scald your skin with the hot running water.
  • Close your shower curtain while water is running. This will cause more heat and steam to develop turning your bathtub into a sauna like atmosphere.
  • Sit on the side of the bathtub carefully and experience the warmth after your tub has filled up. Pull the curtain back and lean over the tub for 15 to 20 minutes. Take the cold washcloth and wipe sweat off your skin to help you cool off.
  • If you feel dizzy, leave the bathroom immediately and drink cold water.
  • Drain the bath water and rinse with cool water in your shower after you are done to lower your body temperature.
  • Finish off with your fave Pure Fiji Body Butter or Hydrating Lotion.
