It's not a spa day if things don't smell amazing, is it? This aromatherapy diffuser is a gentle way to add aromatherapy to a room. Find a scent that relaxes and is pleasing to you and feel your room transform. I think every one is quick to pick up lavender, and lavender is great, but not all are created equal. Be sure to choose one that smells great to you or even try something different like peppermint for clarity or orange to enliven you!

I LOVE tea. I have at least one a day and I find it to be the quick fix for instant relaxation. When embarking on your spa day you'll most certainly need a beverage(s).
If you're really feeling decadent, pour yourself a glass of wine or bubbles. Sarah Tracey, of thelushlifeny.com has some incredible picks if you're not sure where to start. Tea of course is an essential and though I've tried many brands, I always go back to Choice. It's high quality, not over priced and always a win. You can also add some fresh fruit to sparkling water if you want something different. Choice Organic Peppermint Herb Tea, 16 Count Box
Once the 30 min are done on this mask you'll see your face looking totally different. It's almost comical how lifted it looks while it's still on but once you take it off your skin will feel renewed, refreshed and look much more even toned. Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask
I definitely recommend using an oil before or after the shower/bath. This one from Tata is great to use after as it soaks in immediately. Apply to damp skin for an easier application. Tata Harper Revitalizing Body Oil
If you're looking for something a little (a lot actually) less expensive than Tata, check out the oils from Aura Cacia. This sesame one I'll put on pre-shower since it is definitely very oily but once it rinses off it'll leave your body feeling super soft.

Body brushing is great for your circulation and just feels really nice. Try and do it several times a week before you shower. It's great to body brush then add an oil to soften your skin. TopNotch Body Brush, Dry Skin Brushing, Long Handle, Detachable Head, Luxury Natural Bristles
At a spa day you don't want to neglect your feet! Keep them nice and soft by rubbing them with a Pumice Stones and following up with a foot cream. This one from Caudalie absorbs right into your skin and leaves you subtly soft! - Caudalie Foot Beauty Cream
Whatever your ritual, be sure to take time out to give yourself some extra love. Creating a self-care routine that is pleasing to you will help transform your mood, productivity and overall well-being.
