There's nothing like going to the spa and getting a full day of pampering. But if you can’t get to the spa, we need to bring the spa to you!
Not all spa treatments can be done at home, but some treatments are easier to manage at a home spa party. You'll want to think ahead about the perfect spa night in for you and your group. Start planning out services you can do at home like facials, hand and foot massages, pedicures, or manicures.
Picking the Theme
Are you celebrating an event like a birthday, a bachelorette party or something special? In that case you’ll want to pamper the lucky party host and spoil her with treatments that make her feel special. (I’m using ‘her’ but all the above can of course be applied to him too).
Baby showers and weddings are an ideal opportunity to add a little spa action to the party. Make sure when planning spa parties for baby showers you include safe options for pregnant women. Check out lists of safe essential oils for pregnancy as well as contraindications when giving massages or other spa treatments.
Setting the Mood
Sometimes we just feel like spoiling ourselves without a reason and this is the perfect opportunity to do so. To set the scene for a spa party, you’ll need to get the atmosphere serene and calm. Aromatherapy burners are a must, with a nice soothing premixed blend. Use a diffuser or a burner, whatever you prefer, and keep it topped up with delicious scents.
Serve healthy snacks – fruit platters, crudités and hummus and smoothies or you can up the decadence level and add some sophisticated cocktails (and mocktails). There are plenty of recipes online or just stick to tried and tested Bellini’s – make it something easy to mix so that you don’t spend ages on your relaxing night working out how to fix a drink.
Lastly – music. You might not be in the mood for whale music or pan pipes, but you need some mellow tunes to fix the spa mood. Find some nice chilled out tracks, you can make a playlist of your favorites.
