I usually grab a quick shower, but I like to take a long, hot bath. I love going to get massages, but I don’t have the time or money for that. I try to find one day a week to relax and pamper myself at home.
- The first thing I do put on some good music. I love Pandora on my phone and can choose whatever I’m in the mood to listen to. They even have a spa station! When I’m in the bath tub and close my eyes feel like I’m at the spa. Sometimes, I just listen to my favorite songs though.
- I had a sugar scrub once before a massage and it was awesome! My skin was so smooth. I started researching how to make my own and it’s pretty easy. It only has 3 ingredients. I made these for a Christmas gift for the teachers one year, and they loved it.
Here’s what you need
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
- 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
- 15 Essential Oils (optional) I used Young Living Stress Away.
- Pint jar
If the coconut oil isn’t in liquid form, you’ll need to stick it in the microwave for 30-45 seconds. Just pour in the sugar and essential oils and mix until well blended. I keep this right beside the bathtub it’s ready to grab when I have extra time. It makes your skin feel so smooth. You can also buy (or make your own) bath bombs or bubble bath. I just like to have some things that aren’t part of my normal routine, something that’s special.
- Last, I set my atmosphere. Glade® Blue Odyssey™ Large Candle is awesome because it smells so nice. The large candle burns for more than 60 hours so you can relax a long time. 🙂 There is a great offer at Walmart right now, Buy 2 Glade® Blue Odyssey™ Large Candles (9.2 oz. size) and receive a $5 virtual gift card! This is a great deal. You can buy one for you and put one away for later or use for a Christmas gift.
Sometimes I just close my eyes with the lights off and give myself that quiet time I need (and deserve).
