Create a Spa-Like Atmosphere at Home

First, get ready for a day of relaxation, starting with a clean room so you're not distracted by work or clutter.

Light a few scented candles, or use an essential oil diffuser, as aromatherapy scents are a great way to brighten your mood and relax.

Citrus Candles with Lemons

  • 2 large white paraffin votive candles* (or use beeswax or soy melts)
  • 1 lemon, 1 lime
  • Microwaveable bowl
  • Metal spoon, scissors, knife
  1. Cut each fruit in half (crosswise).ย  To help keep theย candle sitting flat on the table when done, trim off a thin slice off the bottom half of the fruit.
  2. Remove the wick from the paraffin candles and place into center of citrus bowls.
  3. Place the candle wax in a microwaveable bowl. Carefully heat until melted.
  4. Pour the melted wax into the citrus bowls with wick positioned vertically in the center. Let cool and harden completely.

ย Eucalyptus Essential Oil Candles

  • Jars or containers
  • Natural candle wick
  • Natural Soy Wax, Unscented
  • Scissors, spoon or ladle,measuring cup
  • Essential oils
  1. First heat the soy flakes in a Teflon pan over medium heat. Keep the flakes moving to avoid sticking or clumping.
  2. Once the flakes are liquid, lower the heat and drop the crayon pieces into the liquid. Continue to stir to distribute the colour. Remove from pan and set aside. At this point, you can add drops of eucalyptus essential oil.
  3. Now, wrap the end of the wick around the pencil or chopstick. Let the weight fall to the bottom of the jar, then use a stick to secure the wick to the top.
  4. Slowly pour the melted soy flakes into the jar. Adjust the wick if necessary.


Then, put on your favourite playlist, create a relaxing atmosphere, and prepare a good cup of tea or whatever beverage you like, we recommend chamomile tea for relaxation.

Using a Homemade Mask or Scrub

Next, make a homemade face mask part to enhance your spa session.ย 

Soothing Green Tea Mask (Good for inflammation)

  • Green tea bag, Sugar & Lemon

Green tea helps calm sensitive or irritated skin. Begin by brewing green tea in as little water as possible so it's highly concentrated. Then mix equal parts of tea and honey together with a squeeze of lemon. Apply the mixture to your face and leave it on for 15 minutes before washing it with warm water. Prepare to feel super refreshed!

Exfoliating Oatmeal Face Maskย 

  • 1 teaspoon honey, 1 teaspoon olive oil & 1 packet of plain instant oatmeal

Mix honey and olive oil. Also, prepare a packet of plain oatmeal with less water than called for so that thick paste forms. Next, add the honey and olive oil mixture to the cooked oatmeal. To apply as a scrub, dab in small circles over the skin, avoiding the eye area. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry. This mask can be done twice a week.

ย Yoghurt and Lemon Mask

  • 2 tablespoons plain yoghurt & 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Mix plain yoghurt with fresh lemon juice (juice of one lemon) and apply to cleansed face and neck. Let it dry for 20 to 30 minutes. When you're done, rinse with warm water, then cool water. This mask can be done two to three times a week, or whenever you need a facelift.

Coconut Oil and Honey Hydrating Mask
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, 1 tablespoon honey & 1 teaspoon lemon juice
Combine coconut oil, honey and lemon juice. Use raw honey, if available, as it is rich in antioxidants. Massage the mixture into the face in circular motions for 2 to 3 minutes. Let it sit on the skin for another 20 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water.

Try a Jade Roller Facial Massage (Gua Sha)

After removing the mask, try a relaxing facial massage with a jade roller and your favourite facial oil or cream.

Try a facial massage to improve circulation, reduce eye puffiness, increase lymphatic drainage and help products absorb better into the skin.

Try Dry Brushing Before Showering

Dry brushing increases blood flow and stimulates collagen production, which will help strengthen your skin. It also dramatically increases elasticity, so it's great for lifting and toning.

It is recommended to brush from the toes to the heart. Don't forget to include your arms and back. Do this before showering for better results.

Homemade hair mask

Leave your hair super soft and shiny with one of these easy homemade hair masks.

With most masks, you need to apply them to dry or damp hair. Use a wide-toothed comb to gently spread the mask evenly. For best results, plan to leave them on for about 10 minutes. Try tying your hair up or wrapping it in a shower cap. The shower cap will also trap some of the heat, which helps speed up the process.
