Home Spa DIY

Stress is something we all go through in our lives; sometimes in abundance. Whether it’s family life, you or your loved one’s health, your home, your job, or the countless other responsibilities we just can’t seem to say no to, stress seeps into our lives and sometimes downright refuses to let go until it has taken us as far down as we think we can possibly go.
Sometimes we would like nothing more than to step into a spa and be pampered throughout the afternoon.  Considering my super busy schedule I would love to have a full-service spa day every other day but let's face it, I am not rich and can not afford to walk through their doors as often as I would like because, dammit, those services are expensive!
So if you’re like me and find yourself often fantasizing about face scrubs and milk baths, here are a 2 super easy beauty recipes you can effortlessly make at home, perhaps after a trip to the grocery store, that will eliminate your troubles, your worries and your stress–at least for the time being.

Relaxing Foot Soak
If you are like my always on your feet and in heels day in and day out, here is a great way to detox and relax.
You will need:
  • 1 cup Epsom salt
  • 1 peppermint tea bag
  • 1 chamomile tea bag
  • 1 basin of water
Fill a basin with warm water and add the Epsom salts and tea bags. Soak feet for 30 minutes.

Old Fashioned Bubble Bath

Who doesn’t love a relaxing, soothing bubble bath? This recipe has some rather weird ingredients, but the sugar and egg whites condition skin and also add to the bubbly effect.
You will need:
  • 1/2 cup milky liquid soap or shower gel
  • 1 tablespoon sugar or honey
  • 1 egg white
Mix together all ingredients. To use, pour the entire mixture under the running water as you draw your bath.
