1) The first thing you need to do is to clear and clean up your bathroom and bathtub. Make sure that you tub is clean and comfort so that you can relax during your spa treatment.

2) Soaking in a regular bathtub is nice; however, sinking into the gentle massage of a Jacuzzi tub will be perfect! Jacuzzi tub will gently soothe away your aches and pains with its deep massaging jets. If your existing tub is not a Jacuzzi tub, you may consider installing one of it if possible.

3) It will be unpleasant to step out of the embrace of your warm bath or steam shower onto a frigidly cold floor. To perfect the luxury feeling, installing the electrical heating systems can give your bathroom with floor-to-ceiling warmth.

4) To create the sense of a spa, you must replace all your old and worn towels with big, fluffy new ones. Choose the new towels with attractive and relaxing colors. You will need at least two extra large towels, one for your body and one for your hair. It will be much better if you can include stylish towels warmers. Anyone who has spent time in an expensive spa knows the luxury of wrapping themselves in warm, soft, fluffy towels. By adding towels warmers to your home spa, you can duplicate this sensation in your own home.

5) If you do not have one, you may consider investing in a stylish bathrobe and nice slippers. This is a one time expense that will make you feel pampered each time when you have your spa treatment.

6) Water combined with light, aroma and sound, is a perfect relaxer. So depend on your preference such as relaxing or energizing then set the mood with music and lighting. Select a tranquil or energizing CD, based on the mood you wish to create. Trigger your home spa sensation with aromatherapy e.g. light some aromatherapy candles in a scent like lavender (for relaxation) or citrus (for rejuvenation). When you set the right mood, you will strengthen the effects of your spa treatments.

7) You can also buy a spa kit or make one yourself. Making a spa kit yourself not only fun but also relaxing since it will be time you spend pampering yourself. To start with, you can find a skin exfoliating lotion or cream and massage your body with it. You will feel relaxing, besides, it will also help to clear off the skin impurities.

8) Get your spa treatment ready. Fill the bathtub with water at the temperature you prefer then add bath salts and oil as well as scented bubbles or even rose petals if possible. For oil selection will depend on your preference, for example, if you want to relax, try lavender oil in your bath, with a rich, soothing and moisturizing mud mask. To energize, try peppermint oil in your bath with a cucumber mask.

9) To start your spa treatment, turn off all phones, TVs, and even the doorbell if possible. Turn off the overhead lights, light your preference candles and turn on the music. Then take off your robe and slip into your hot bath. While your facial mask is working, start with your exfoliating scrub or pumice and let yourself relax while you pay attention to all of the spa sensations. Sink into the experience and enjoy to what you smell, feel and hear. At the end of your home spa, rinse off the facial mask and dry off with your towels. Then take time to moisturize from head to toe.

Creating a home spa is not complex; in fact, it can be simple and affordable. So you can simply unwind and enjoy precious moment at your own house whenever you like.
