Spa Night for Body Recovery

Treating myself to an at-home spa night is one of my favorite ways to recover after a long, stressful week. After setting the tone with relaxing music, scents and lighting, I draw a bath and enjoy a well-earned soak. 

Creating a home spa sanctuary is an easy, affordable form of self-care. It’s a perfect way to let go of any tension created by a demanding job, a rigorous fitness regimen or any other daily activities that can imprint themselves onto your body and mind. Allowing yourself time to rest in this way also maintains glowing skin and provides anti-aging benefits.

What Products Are Best for an In-Home Spa Experience?

I am a forever fan of Thistle Farms, a locally owned nonprofit in Nashville. For 25 years, they have been healing women survivors of prostitution, addiction and exploitation by giving them housing, counseling and therapy. Knowing that the products I buy serve such a wonderful cause makes relaxation so much more fulfilling. 

Since everything Thistle Farms makes is nontoxic and clean, it’s a perfect fit for my lifestyle. On my most recent at-home spa night, I treated myself to the delightful scents of their handmade saffron rose candle and bath soak trio.

Ingredients like Epsom salt and essential oils elevate the recovery experience to the next level, soothing sore muscles and renewing the spirit. Since Epsom salt readily absorbs through your skin, this pure mineral compound is an all-natural remedy for multiple ailments, flushing toxins out of your body and reducing inflammation.

Benefits of Self-Care

In today’s fast-paced world, self-care is sometimes the first thing to fall by the wayside. But treating yourself isn’t selfish; it’s crucial for your mental and physical well-being. With a home spa night, you can carve out time to disengage from work and household responsibilities and focus on pampering yourself. By fully embracing the experience, you can live in the moment and naturally stabilize your mood.

If you struggle with insomnia or have trouble maintaining a healthy, consistent sleep schedule, your in-home spa can be a good remedy. The warm bathwater and Epsom salts relieve any tension you hold in your muscles. Purposely relaxing will lower your blood pressure and slow down your heart rate, setting the stage for a good night’s sleep. You’ll wake up the next morning feeling refreshed and ready to take on any challenge.
