Top 3 Ideas for a DIY Spa at Home

It’s been a really long and tiring week, and you just want to relieve some stress. For many of us, a trip to the spa would be an ideal way to spoil ourselves, but we cannot afford to do that regularly. So, what other ways can we do to pamper ourselves?

Here are 3 ideas for a DIY spa at home: 

  • Exfoliate your whole body 

Removing dead skin cells can make us feel refreshed, especially when you feel how smooth your skin is. 

The fact is that it is so simple to do this. All that you need is a body scrub, soap, and your own sweet time to just scrub away old skin cells.

Not only will you feel satisfied after you are done exfoliating, there are also plenty of health benefits to doing so. The dead skin cells clog up your pores and dull your skin, hence by exfoliating, you are “unclogging” your pores and rejuvenating your skin. Moreover, the rubbing action also acts as a massage to your body that boosts blood circulation to your skin for a nice glow. Furthermore, exfoliating increases skin cell renewal, so your skin will also be fresh and healthy.

  • DIY aromatherapy

What makes a spa feel so relaxing is the refreshing scent that floods the air around you to make you feel calm. 

Just light up your favourite scented candle and relax as you take a nice long hot bath. While not everybody has a bathtub at home, you can also sprinkle some lavender essential oil in your bathroom walls, and it is relaxing time…

Start out by gently rubbing your scalp, and exfoliate your whole body with body scrub, while you breathe in the healing scent to give yourself a boost of energy. 

After you are all done, finish it off by applying a hydrating scented body lotion to keep your skin moisturised. Your body will thank you for this!

  • Soothe your sore muscles 

After a long week of working or working out, your muscles and joints are probably aching and you might even be suffering from chronic pains. The need for a massage is long overdue. 

Massage affected areas with essential oils with healing properties with circular motions, working your way into your muscles and joints. Massaging encourages blood circulation that boosts recovery in your body. 

Another way to get a relaxing massage at home is with a massage bathtub or jacuzzi. They help relax your muscles and relieve not only muscular pain, but also of the joints and tendons, with the hot water and massaging action.


In a nutshell, there are so many small things you can add to your shower/bath routine at the end of the day to pamper yourself. 

Maybe it is time that you upgraded your shower or even invested in that bathtub to give yourself that home spa treatment you deserve. Just head on over to Big Bath, and get your FREE 1-to-1 consultation with our Makeover Experts.
