Create your own home spa in 6 simple steps

The daily demands of daily life can all have us craving a weekend break away at a spa. But when our schedules and our bank accounts don’t always allow for that why not create your own home spa, where you can unwind, relax and pamper yourselves. It’s really not as expensive or complicated as you may think so here are our top six tips to setting up your very own home spa.

Lighting & Candles

Ambience lighting is everything when it comes to us feeling relaxed and pampered. The best way to achieve that is by avoiding any bright, overhead lighting and instead using only subtle lamps and candles. With a couple of lamps and candles around the room it will instantly transform any living space into a relaxing and indulging spa type room. Look at scented wellness candles for relaxing scents and looking for candles that also contain essential oils, especially lavender, will have you feeling relaxed in no time at all.

Linens, bathrobe & Towels

Linens and textiles are really important so if you want to go all out and create real hotel spa type chic why not invest in hotel quality bed linen, bathrobe and towels from a company that supplies directly to hotels, such as Richard Haworth. Filling your home with the best quality linens and towels will ensure that your home spa has a truly sumptuous, luxurious and indulgent feel.

Essential Oils
