2020 has been the year of cancelled travelled plans. But that’s ok, we work with what we have. Who needs a tropical getaway when you can elevate your mood and well-being with a stay-cay! Turn any bathroom – whether at home or at a hotel – into your own personal spa. Wash away stress, watch tension melt, find your balance, and feel your mood and happiness lift.

Here’s how you can capture that spa mood…

SCENT-SATIONAL SCRUBS 

Say goodbye to stress as you prepare to fall in scrub with SABON and French Girl Organics. It would seem salt is not only good in food but in the bath too!

SABON Body Scrub in Rose Tea scent brings the healing benefits of the Dead Sea to you. Nutrient-rich and mineral-dense, Dead Sea salts relax muscles and detoxify skin; while hydrating and antioxidant-rich botanical oils leave it feeling soft to the touch.

Tantalize your skin and sense of smell with French Girl Organics Rose Sea Polish. Powerful detoxifying Himalayan salts deliver healing minerals to relieve tired muscles. While nourishing butters and fruit oils moisturize and envelope skin in the soothing aromas of essential oils.

GOOD MOOD BOOSTERS

There’s nothing like an uplifting scent to boost your mood. Look for ingredients such as geranium, ginger or rose to soothe skin and make your spirit smile.

Feeling anxious? In aromatherapy, geranium has been used to calm and reduce feelings of anxiety. Reach for Aesop’s Geranium Leaf Body Balm. Hydrate skin and breathe in the calming and fresh citrus scent.

Feeling tense? ORIGINS Ginger Souffle™ Whipped Body Cream is your BFF. Wrap yourself in the warming sensation of ginger, known for boosting circulation which in turn relaxes muscles.

Finally, feel like a queen with Jurlique Softening Rose Body Cleansing Cream. Not only has rose been considered a luxury for centuries, but its skin benefits are also well documented. Its uplifting scent has been thought to stimulate the feel-good hormones in the brain.

MAGIC MASSAGE

Evict stress and its effects with some massage and a generous dose of self-care. Invest in the de-stress with lavender – the most popular and versatile essential oil.

Try Jurlique Jojoba Carrier Oil + Lavender Pure Essential Oil. This winning combo is amazing for massage. Jojoba oil hydrates while lavender heightens feelings of relaxation and calm, and is often used to help with insomnia.

For a different approach, try LUSH Therapy Massage Bar. It gently melts from body heat as it preps skin for massage. Infused with the happy and relaxing scent of lavender and sweet orange neroli, you’ll be on cloud nine in no time!

Take the sense of touch to the next level with some massage tools.

For the body, BA GUAN from CHA LING L’Esprit du Thé is inspired by the traditional Chinese cupping. It is designed to smooth and firm by tackling fatty deposits, toxin drainage, and to encourage harmonious circulation. If you’re looking to sweep away tension in your shoulders and neck, Angela Caglia’s Rose Quartz Gua Sha Lifting Tool is an essential. The precious rose quartz tool is made in the shape of Angela’s own hand and can be used to massage away any knots, tension, and give your lymphatic system a boost.
