In 7 easy steps, Femica will help you create a spa-like bath experience right in your personal bathroom!
1. Start with Decluttering!
A spa-like experience can only be created when you ensure the space is free from dirt and clutter. Clutter only begets more clutter but most importantly, it increases stress!
So before you put your foot inside your bathtub for a steam bath, make sure the surroundings are squeaky clean. This includes dusting and organising the countertops, the floor, the mirrors, and even the tub. Also, install fresh bath mats and bring in some typical spa DIY décor items like succulents.
2. Relaxing Ambience is All it Takes
The standout feature of a luxurious spa is its serene and relaxing ambience. If you’ve been to one, you know that the ambience itself can calm the nerves and lull you to sleep.
Femica believes that creating that ambience is not too challenging. Introduce scented candles in the space and even some fresh flowers in a glass jar. You can also play soothing music and introduce relaxing elements into the bath water like a few drops of lavender essential oil.
Then to make the experience even more relaxing, have an interesting novel around and keep some scrumptious snacks to enjoy.
3. Introduce Some Luxurious Add-Ins
The ultimate experience of a DIY home spa is never complete without luxurious in-bath elements. You get a luxe feel when you enhance the water with bath salts and bombs. You should take a bath with a handmade (preferably mildly scented) bath soap and a non-abrasive bath sponge. that gently cleanses your body.
In case you also wish to create this same effect with easy-to-find household items, Femica recommends using cinnamon sticks, orange or grapefruit slices, and flower petals like rose or jasmine. The sweet aroma in tandem with the luxurious look will allow you to have the spa-like refreshing experience that you need.
4. Give Your Hair Some Love
Once the spa-like setup is all done, it is time to give your body (and hair) the love they deserve! After all, that is what all this hassle was all about, right? So start with your gorgeous locks.
This is the time to use body care products like hair creams and masks that nourish the scalp and strengthen the follicles. Gently give your hair a relaxing massage and apply the mask all over the scalp and the free-flowing tresses.
Keep it on for some time (around 30 minutes). Meanwhile, you can enjoy some snacks or the novel. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water.
5. Have a Bath + Mask Session
An added useful step to introduce into this long-drawn process of the home spa is a DIY face mask. Depending upon your skin’s unique needs, you can apply a mild cucumber face mask or a detoxifying clay mask.
Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. Then, wash it off and at the same time, give your facial muscles a gentle massage. This will calm your senses and also improve blood circulation for glowing skin.
6. Exfoliate Your Skin
Once you’re done treating your hair and face right, it’s time to let the rest of your body also relish the spa-like experience. In case you’re not sure how to use bath salts, just open the packet into the bath water and stir it with your hand to let the salt grains dissolve. Get inside the bathtub and soak yourself in relaxing, lukewarm water for at least 20 to 30 minutes.
Femica believes that this process is extremely crucial because it helps the bath salts and essential oils to remove dead skin cells and detoxify (the skin is the largest excretory organ!). Once done, get out of the bathtub and scrub off gently.
Use a mild, exfoliating scrub for this process as it will properly help remove the dead skin cells and improve blood circulation throughout the body. You will notice a difference in how soft and supple your skin feels.
7. Moisturise Well
When you’re preparing your list of body care products, do not forget a good moisturiser for both your skin and body. This step is also crucial because it seals your spa-like bath efforts.
How? Though the warm bath is relaxing and therapeutic, it can dehydrate your skin. The situation is going to be worse in case you already have dry skin. Once you dry your body with a towel, apply a good moisturiser.
Pay special attention to your knees, elbows, ankles, and other areas prone to getting dry easily.

1. What are some useful tips to clean a bathtub naturally?
Cleaning a bathtub naturally is easy. You can either use water and baking soda or water and vinegar. In the case of the former, sprinkle baking soda all across the tub and fill it with lukewarm water. Then scrub with a non-abrasive scrub and rinse. For the latter, fill a spray bottle with water and vinegar in a 2:1 ratio. You can even add lemon juice. Spray all across the tub and wipe after allowing it to sit for 15 to 20 minutes.
2. Which kind of bath salt is the best?
It is always best to invest in bath salts that promote relaxation. For this, use bath salts composed of rose and lavender. These will not only cleanse your skin deeply but also offer a mild scent and relaxation.
3. Which body sponge should I invest in?
Body sponge can work wonders in not just exfoliating your skin but also improving its texture. As such, it is best to invest in a natural sponge because it will gently cleanse your skin. Also, ensure the sponge is not too abrasive as it could further irritate your skin.
