If you know me at all, you’d know that I’m a spa junkie. I take the opportunity for a facial or massage any chance I get. But the problem with going to the spa is that it costs money…obviously. And besides, the goal is to bring those spa-like vibes to our every day life because that’s where we actually live most of the time. Here’s some of the ways you can easily bring the spa to you.
There are a few different ways you could incorporate a diffuser into your bathroom, but any option will be a great aromatherapy boost.
You could go for a stylish electric option like this:
Or a more analog diffuser, complete with reed sticks like this:
Personally I’ve tried several electric options over the years and I go back to the reeds every time because of the low maintenance (no cleaning or remembering to keep running).
2. Toilet Seat Warmer
Now right off the bat, I get that this probably feels silly, but in the middle of the night whether the toilet is freezing from the AC or the winter chill, sitting on a freshly warmed seat is a true luxury. For extra boogie-ness, get toilet lights too.
Most of us have plants already and need to find more space for them so this is an easy one! Simply bring in a plant into the bathroom. Plants love the humidity in a bathroom and you can feel less guilty about those long showers. You could have a potted houseplant sitting on a shelf or the bathroom counter or go the extra mile and hang eucalyptus from your shower head for a true spa vibe. Trader Joe's is my go-to for fresh eucalyptus because it's almost always in stock.
4. Bathtub Caddy
If you’re into baths and not just a shower person, a bathtub caddy is an easy way to turn a #basicbath into a #luxurysoak. You’ll want to make sure you find an option that works for the size of your tub and what you like to do in there, drink wine, read, pretend to be a mermaid...
5. Facial Steamer
I don’t often splurge on facials because if I’m going to spend the money, a massage feels more productive (massage is fantastic for relaxation and the immune system), but one thing about the facial experience that’s super easy to bring home in an affordable way is a facial steamer! Some even have an option to humidify the air and warm towels.
6. Towel Warmer
Speaking of warm towels, if you have the space, why not hang up a towel warmer instead of a basic towel rack? From personal experience, sometimes bathrooms can be freezing (hi basement bathroom of mine!) and a warm towel can make all the difference.
Do you already have any of these spa like items in your bathroom? What would be the #1 you'd love to splurge on first? Do you have any other ideas you'd add? I'd love to more hear about it, comment below!
