Treat Yourself: Relaxing Spa Day At Home

Treat yourself to a relaxing spa day at home:

POV: It has been a long week at work, you’re in desperate need of some TLC, but a Spa day is a big commitment and you have weekend plans already. This is where a home spa day is just the thing you need! Get your kit together, we’ve got some top Taiga inspired tips for you 🙂


The key to a good spa bath is all about relaxation, moisturising and aromatherapy. You want that perfect combination of oils and scents to destress and leave your body feeling nourished and refreshed. Here are some ways you can make your relaxing bath extra special:

  • Natural bath salts (such as sea salt)
  • Dried flowers (chamomile, rose, lavender)
  • Dried Herbs (rosemary, comfrey, hyssop)
  • Skin oils (cedar nut oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil)
  • Essential Oils (cedar, lavender, frankincense, ylangylang)

TOP TIP: If you have some Megre Elixir, you can add a drop to your bath oil and add it to your bath. The Elixir pulls toxins and other dirt from the cells, allowing the skin to breathe better. It helps with flabbiness and loss of elasticity and skin redness or rashes will begin to subside after the first or second application.

Bath Salts

Bath salts are an amazing way to help the body detox and refresh itself. Many spiritual practices use salt for cleansing properties, notice how when you swim in the salty water of the ocean you immediately feel refreshed and renewed? This is because the ocean water has a cleansing effect on the body. Although nothing can replicate the effects of the ocean, good quality salts added to our spa bath can assist in detoxifying and cleansing the body. It may also help with irritated skin, soothe achey joints and muscles and stimulate circulation.

NB: Take precautions bathing in salt water if you have an open wound or with skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis or acne. Always be sure to consult your healthcare provider.

Herbs and Flowers

Do you collect dried herbs and flowers from your garden? If you have some left over from a previous season, why not add them to your bath for added therapeutic benefits from Nature. You can make your own blends according to your preferences.

Essential Oils

This is a great way to enhance the scents of your Spa bath and you can choose according to what scents evoke a relaxing feeling for you. Add your favourite essential oils to some cedar nut oil, or a carrier oil of your choice and float away with the scents of your favourite plants and flowers.

NB: Always be sure to add essential oils to a carrier oil and take note of individual sensitivities. Essential oils are very powerful, only a few drops are needed (we usually start with 3 drops).

What’s next

Now that you’ve got your ultra relaxing bath covered, here are a few extras to help you get into the spa mood.

Face masks

Next up on the list of crucial aspects of a Spa day is: face masks. Our skin is the first organ of our body that is exposed to toxins – especially if we live in the city. A face mask is a great way to get some deep cleansing into the skin that is most exposed. We only use natural, here’s our recipe:


  • Powdered oatmeal (3 tbs)
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs cedar oil 
  • 1 tbs warm water (more for a thinner consistency)


  • Add the oatmeal powder and mix it with warm water, honey and cedar oil to an optimal consistency for you (start with a small amount of water and work your way up to the desired consistency).
  • Apply this mixture to your face as you would a normal face mask, keep it on for 10-15 minutes.
  • You can add other ingredients – a little cedar oil, coffee grounds, cocoa powder. Experiment! The effect is amazing regardless of what you add.

Dry Brushing

Dry brushing is a common practice when you visit the Spa, have you tried it? It is said to assist in increasing blood flow and stimulating the production of collagen which helps to increase the elasticity and strength of the skin. This makes it a great addition to your toning and lifting toolkit.

Start at your feet and work your way up towards your chest, brushing your skin at a pressure that is comfortable to you (you don’t want to hurt yourself or open the skin). Try this before jumping into the bath.

Hydrating Snacks

Hydrating while in relaxing in a hot bath allows your body to remain hydrated while still experiencing the healing affects of the bath. Juicy fruits that contain living water will be the most beneficial:

  • chopped watermelon
  • citrus fruits
  • apples
  • fruit or vegetable infused water
  • herbal tea (you can make it into an iced tea and add honey for sweetness)
