How to Have a Spa Day at Home

#1. Turn on the Music

To have a great spa day at home, start by setting the mood with calming and relaxing music. One of the main reasons we go to the spa is for relaxation.

Playing the right music will help simulate a calming atmosphere for you to feel relaxed.

#2. Light Some Candles

Scented candles are great for simulating a spa like atmosphere at home. Candles come in different scents, choose the scents that appeal to you and that will help you feel relaxed.

#3. Diffuse Essential Oils

Aromatherapy is a great tool to use for your spa day at home. Some essential oils can help relieve stress and anxiety, helping you to relax.

There are several stress-relieving essential oils you can choose from but my favorite is lavender.

Light your candles or diffuse your essential oils, turn on the music and before you know it, you have already turned your bathroom into a mini spa.

#5. Dry Brush Your Skin

Not only does dry brushing exfoliates the skin, making it smoother, softer and brighter, but it can also boost circulation and improve lymphatic drainage as well as help reduce cellulite.

#6. Exfoliate with Body Scrubs

Exfoliate and polish your skin with body scrubs such as this coffee body scrub, or the following if you want to focus on cellulite prone areas:

Coffee Grounds Cellulite Scrub Blend



Mix the essential oil in with the melted and cooled extra virgin coconut oil.  Then blend all the ingredients together. Store in airtight container.

To Use

Massage a large amount, using a circular motion, to your more cellulite prone areas (hips, thighs and bottom). Allow to sit on skin for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse with mild soap and warm water. (I advise doing in the shower as it can be very messy!)

I really love this emulsified sugar scrub because not only does it exfoliate, but it also moisturizes the skin as it turns into lotion when washed off.
