If you’re like most of us, you’re feeling the physical-distancing blues and spikes in anxiety from this pandemic. Covid-19 is no joke and has come quickly, as a shock to many. We’re all feeling the worries and rise in stress levels, which is why there’s no better time for self-care than right now.
Holistically, true self-care should focus on both our inner, mental state, as much as our outer, physical state. Taking time to support our mental health is just as important as the food we eat to nourish our body. What better way to relax than by letting every thought pass like floating balloons while sinking into mineral-rich, aromatherapy-infused bath water… Heaven.
And the best part? These products are all truly natural and toxin-free.
“Holistically, true self-care should focus on both our inner, mental state, as much as our outer, physical state.”
Grab your fluffiest slippers, coziest robe, and prepare to pamper and soothe your body, mind, and soul, for the ultimate, at-home spa experience. Set aside about 30-45 minutes to draw a warm bath, grab some wellness accessories, and your most nourishing skincare products. All you need is a few of these holistic skincare essentials for your own, at-home, spa session.
Start by setting the mood. Dim the lights, light a candle, turn on some calming music, or whatever you need to help enhance the experience. Pour yourself a tall glass of water to stay hydrated. Try adding slices of cucumber or fruit to infuse your water for an added treat.
It’s time to give your mind and body some rest. We all need it now, more than ever.
HERE ARE A FEW HERB MARKET SELECTIONS TO HELP BRING THE LUXE SPA EXPERIENCE TO YOUR HOME:
Dry Skin Brushing – a practice that literally takes just a couple of minutes and a step you wont want to miss. Always on dry skin, before your soothing bath, use gentle, upward strokes to boost circulation and lymphatic drainage. A good quality dry skin brush with firm agave plant bristles work to exfoliate and unclog pores for super soft, rejuvenated skin.
Bonus: Regular use of dry brushing works to disperse fat deposits, which can reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Aromatherapy-Infused Salt Bath – try our Calming bath salts with lavender and Roman chamomile to help calm the mind and prepare for a good nights rest (we all know we need it these days). Formulated with relaxing lavender, but did you know Roman chamomile has been used for hundreds of years as an effective herbal sedative? The potent oil extracted contains effective aromatherapy properties to truly calm the mind.
*Each of our bath salts can also be used as a soothing foot soak, while still being able to take in the aromatherapy properties.
Gua Sha Facial Massage – this ancient Chinese medicine tool is used to massage facial muscles and work to ease away tension and boost circulation. It’s a perfect tool to use while you’re soaking in the bath, or right after you apply your nourishing facial oil. A few strokes in each facial area is all you need to reap the benefits. The natural cooling nature of the jade gua sha stone will work to de-puff and soothe skin.
Luxury Body Oil Massage – The perfect end to your at-home spa experience. Massage Lavender Patchouli body oil into damp skin, after your bath. The oil will sink in and moisturize, leaving skin feeling soft, silky, and heavenly scented – The lingering, calming scent of the essential oils will continue to provide a lasting, relaxing feeling.
*A few pumps can be added to bath water for an ultra luxe, nourishing experience.
We hope our guide of at-home spa essentials inspires you to take time to relax and unwind during this time.
Stay safe, stay home, & self-care.
