As much as the festive season is about partying, seeing family and indulgent eating, it is also about relaxation and taking time for yourself to appreciate all aspects of life that you’re grateful for. It might be hard to find time to do this will all the Christmas wrapping, home preparation (read our tips here >>) and meal preparations. However, at Coggles we have put together a simple and easy guide to setting up your spa at home experience, even if you only have a spare hour or so…
Whether you’re looking for a pre-Christmas boost or a post party pamper, take our simple steps to the perfect spa day at home…
Create the space
Pick the room
Picking a calm room creates the ideal set up for an at home spa experience. For some a bedroom is most appropriate, meaning they can lie down post facial or face mask and relax, for others the bathroom is best. Dim the lights and create the right atmosphere for relaxation.
Turn on some relaxing music
Recreate the spa experience with calming tones and sea wave sounds. There are plenty of playlists made for relaxation that usually include wild nature sounds and soft melodies.
Light scented candles
Create the aroma of a spa with scented candles and diffusers. For an immediate release of calming smells, try ESPA candles for soothing and re-energising scents or Aesop Anouk Oil Burner Blend for a release of revitalising citrus notes. Try scents that include lavender, jasmine, rosemary or lemon to really replicate the luxury spa aroma.
