Going to the spa is one of the finest luxuries in life; however, it can be really costly and inaccessible. Luckily, it’s not difficult to bring the spa home to you!

A night or two before your spa night, DIY these six items so they’re all ready to go for your night of pampering. Then, all that’s left is to set the mood by dimming the lights in your bathroom, putting some essential oils in your diffuser, and playing some relaxing music. 

Tuck away your cell phone and any other electronics to make the evening as peaceful as possible. This is your time to focus on yourself— enjoy it!

1. Knit Blanket 

After a relaxing night of pampering yourself, you’ll want nothing more than to curl up in bed or on the couch and wind down. Knitting your own cozy blanket before your spa night will be the perfect accompaniment for that! 

There are plenty of knitting and crochet patterns for free online that you can choose from to make your perfect blanket. Go for something chunky and warm for added coziness. 

You may also want to have fuzzy socks/slippers, a robe, and PJs on hand too to make your post-spa night as comfy as possible. For starters, you can go for lion brand yarn to begin knitting the perfect garments or accessories.

2. Candles

Candles are the perfect accessory for setting the mood of your spa night, and they’re super easy to make if you don’t have some at home already. 

Heat your wax on the stove until it melts. Then, add in whatever fragrance you prefer and any colored dye. Next, pour the melted wax into a container with a wick, allow the wax to set, and you’re good to go.  

3. Bath Bomb

A great way to relax during your spa night is to run a hot bath and throw in a bath bomb. 

On top of being pretty and smelling great, bath bombs also have moisturizing benefits for your skin. 

You’ll need Epsom salt, baking soda, citric acid, coconut oil, cornstarch, and your favorite essential oil

4. Body Scrub

Exfoliating should be incorporated into your routine 2-3 times per week. It removes dead skin cells, clears blemishes, and removes ingrown hairs. 

Combine either brown sugar or coffee with hot water and coconut oil for an easy body scrub that can be massaged all over your body. 

5. Hair Mask

As you’re soaking in the tub, it’s the perfect time to throw in a hair mask.

Mix a few tablespoons of coconut oil with your favorite essential oil and slather it in your hair. Use a wide-tooth comb to help evenly distribute the product through your hair. 

Leave the mask in your hair for the rest of your bath. You could also leave it overnight and rinse it out in the shower the following day.  

6. Face Mask

Face masks are super easy to DIY and can be customized based on your skin type. 

For a simple mask that will leave your skin feeling smooth and fresh, combine honey, oatmeal, and milk. Apply generously to your face and leave it on for about 15 minutes. This mask is also great for sensitive skin.
