Everybody deserves a little treat right now. Self-care is especially important for us during the ongoing lockdown, as it can help to improve our state of mind. Once a week why not treat yourself to a pamper session bringing the relaxation and peacefulness of a spa to your home. Home fragrance can play a huge part in helping you escape reality for a short while and allowing your imagination to run wild.

Here are some ideas of things you can try with a loved one from your household or on your own, to create your own personalised spa at home experience.


Method 1 - Light a Fragrance Lamp

Light a Fragrance Lamp for just 2 minutes, then sit back and enjoy 30 minutes of amazing benefits. Your Fragrance Lamp will get rid of bacteria and unwanted odours from the air before you start your home spa session. We would recommend using our Relaxation Lamp Fragrance from our Essential Oil Collection to get you in the mood and flow of the pamper session that awaits you.


Method 2 - Candle Lit Bubble Bath

Enjoy a soothing candle lit bubble bath. Run a nice hot bath, full with your favorite bubbles and light some scented candles, so you can enjoy a beautiful evocative fragrance whilst you let your mind and body unwind.
We recommend lighting one of the following candles for their relaxing fragrance note combinations.


Method 3 - Essential Oils

Spas love to use aromatherapy to create a soothing atmosphere and to relax their clients into their treatments. We offer a range of essential oils, all carefully selected and blended for their unique set of benefits. These can be used in any of our oil burners or Amora Ultrasonic Diffusers. Our essential oils are 100% pure and natural and impart the therapeutic benefits of a true aromatherapy experience. Place a few drops in your chosen oil burner or ultrasonic diffusers and let the oils work their magic. You can pick any essential oils from our range that fits your specific spa day criteria.

  • Relax Me - Ylang Ylang, lavender and geranium work together to create a relaxing blend
  • Deep Breath - Inhale this stimulating blend of spearmint, peppermint and eucalyptus to awaken your body
  • Bedtime - Unwind and prepare for a good sleep with this restful blend of rose, clary and lavender
  • Energise Me - Kick start your day with an awakening blend of grapefruit, ginger and black pepper
  • Focus My Mind - Maximise concentration with this blend of lemon, thyme and rosemary oils

Method 4 - Make a facemask

Treat your skin to a homemade facemask. There are many online recipes you can use which you can alter to your personal preference. Here is one favoured by Gabby, our Brand Ambassador.

Avocado Face Mask

Benefits - Avocado is loaded with vitamin E, healthy fats, and antioxidants to help keep skin smooth. ... Honey helps brighten the skin and also thoroughly cleanse with its natural antibacterial/antimicrobial properties.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 ripe avocado
  • 1 teaspoon of plain yoghurt
  • ½ teaspoon of honey

Step 1: Mix all the ingredients into a bowl and stir them well until you get a paste of uniform consistency.
Step 2: Apply the mask onto your skin for 10-15 minutes or until it dries out.
Step 3: Rinse off with warm water

“Face masks are great if you want to give your skin some TLC. I know I feel physically better when my skin feels fresh and my face looks good. Once you've got your face mask on why not place some cucumber slices over your eyes and unwind for the duration of your chosen mask.”

Pick and choose from any of the methods above to give yourself some self-care and a quick pick me up. Alternatively, if you are feeling adventurous, you could spend the whole day at your home spa and treat yourself in every way possible. You can start by enjoying breakfast in bed followed by spending the rest of the day in your dressing gown or pyjamas. Why not paint your nails or shape your eyebrows, whilst listening to some calming music. Take a break from the treatments to read a good book or enjoy a restful nap.

Treat yourself, because you deserve it!
