Having a spa day is one way to take care of yourself, but time and a tight budget are sometimes an issue. Creating a spa experience will not be a problem if you are a crafty and creative woman.

Allow yourself to get away from the busy everyday life and feel good in your skin by making your at-home spa kit. Or, make someone happy by crafting a perfect home spa gift basket.

List Of Top 25 Home Spa Essentials For Women

We created a list of numerous home spa essentials to help you prepare for the relaxing experience. There is a way to pamper yourself at home, and here is how.

1 Mood Setting Scented Candle


Setting the right mood is the essence of pampering yourself. We all love those fancy scented candles. You can purchase them at any store or use your favorite scent. They help create the right relaxing mood.

2 Soap Bar

A soap bar nourishes the skin, and the scents help relax you. If you are crafty enough, you can make homemade soap and test out different shapes, colors, fragrances, and decorations.

3 Multi-Benefit Face Wash

Treat acne-prone skin, dry skin, and scars with the right face wash. Choose one with natural ingredients that fit your skin type and needs, or use a homemade face wash. Use ingredients like aloe vera gel, rose water, soap, rosehip, chamomile, lavender essential oil, or avocado oil.

4 Face Masks

Women love to treat their skin with nurturing face masks. The natural ingredients moisturize, soothe and feed the skin and reduce inflammation. Clay is one of the most famous traditional face mask ingredients.

A salt mask eliminates dead skin cells leaving the skin smooth and silky. Oatmeal, honey, and milk masks are gentle and ideal for dry skin.

5 Face Steam Treatment

Before applying a face mask, it is best to start by steaming your face. Professional spas usually have a steamer. However, you can also do this at home by boiling water in a pot. Allow 5 to 10 minutes for the steam to penetrate the skin to open up your pores.

Add salt, lemon, tea, dried herbs, or/and oils, like eucalyptus or lavender, to the water for extra health and beauty benefits.

6 Recharging Face Mist

Recharge and soften your face and neck with some face mist. Combine melted shea butter, aloe vera plant gel, and water in a nice spray bottle to make the mist.  Add some witch hazel, tea tree oil, lavender oil, or rose water for a relaxing effect.

7 Nurturing Body Lotion

Body lotions are a must-have for pampering your body.  A homemade body lotion can be a one-component treat like shea butter, lavender, bergamot, jojoba oil, or aloe vera gel. You can also combine them to get benefits from all of them simultaneously!

8 Eye Pads

Tired eyes need occasional freshening up. Use gel masks to relax the eyes or slice a fresh cucumber and use it as cold natural pads on your eyes.

9 Scrub and Massage Your Lips

Nurtured and pink lips require regular treatment and care. Use any low-price lip scrub or make one yourself. Combine one tsp of honey and two tsp of sugar. Gently massage your lips with the mixture, leave it on for a few minutes, and rinse it.

10 Bath Bombs for a Bubbly Experience

All women love well-scented bath bombs. You can buy them ready-made, or you can make them by using your favorite ingredients.  The low-price favorites are lavender, rose, and eucalyptus, but the selection will depend on your mood.

11 Bath Salts 

Recharge your batteries and give your skin the needed attention with bath salts. You can create bath salts by combining pink salt, baking soda, and essential oils.

12 Body Scrub

Homemade body scrubs are a mixture of everything nice and are often preferred. Mix some brown sugar with an oil of your choice, and there’s your body scrub. Add coffee grinds to the mixture to fight cellulite and increase circulation.

13 Foot Spa

Standing on your feet all day is no fun, and soaking them at the end of the day is a cure for tired feet. Use a footbath to give your feet the deserved rest. Mix apple cider vinegar in some warm water, and soak your feet. Allow the acetic acid to soften dry and damaged skin for up to 20 minutes.

14 Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is known for its therapeutic benefits, which makes it a home spa essential. Use essential oils like lavender, eucalyptus, or orange to decrease anxiety and stress and boost relaxation. Aromatherapy also helps to improve sleep.

15 Massage Oil

A massage is an experience that deeply relaxes us. In combination with massage oil, it is a priceless spa experience. You can purchase your favorite massage oil or make one tailor-made for you.

16 Face Rejuvenation

Face massage is important to keep the tonus and collagen production going. Apply your favorite serum or oil mix using a healing crystal jade roller or gua-sha stone. This will increase blood circulation and improve skin elasticity.

17 Foot Scrub

We use facial and body scrubs, so why not use a foot scrub? Taking care of the feet is an essential part of the beauty routine, and it only takes a few minutes. Use one from your favorite brand, or make your own using delightful scents and other useful ingredients.

18 Dry Brush

Dry brushing is a way to massage the body and simultaneously remove the dry skin cells from your body. Do this before taking a shower. The combination of dry brushing and a hot shower is great for decompressing.

19 Hair Masks

Don’t forget that your hair also needs a spa treatment. Reduce split ends and give your scalp the needed hydration. Apply the hair mask and let it sit for up to 30 minutes for the best results.

20 Detox Tea Blend

Making a detox tea blend is relatively easy. You only need jars, beneficial herbs, spices, dried fruits, or edible flowers. You can choose between many good detox tea blend ingredients.

Some popular blends include green tea, cinnamon, lavender, ginger, and rose flowers. You can also add dried berries, like goji berries, full of vitamin C to help you stay healthy and remove toxins from your body.

21 Comfy Robe and Slippers

We all love the comfy robes that spa centers use. Why not throw in a pair of fuzzy slippers and create the whole experience? The soft fabric gives that spa-like vibe and offers more comfort. These are must-have spa essentials.

22 Deep Tissue Massager

No time to schedule a massage? Owning a deep tissue massager is a blessing. Relax and give those sore muscles the attention they deserve. These devices usually come with several massage heads that fit different body parts. It’s a great experience after a long soaking in the tub.

23 Essential Oil Diffusers

Essential oil diffusers are a part of the luxury spa experience. They boost the mood, help you relax, and improve focus and clarity. Add drops of the preferred essential oil into the diffuser and watch your worries drift away.

24 Create the Ambient

Creating the mood is the key to a relaxing spa experience. Adjust the temperature, dim the lights, make healing music, and place your favorite healing crystals around. You can also burn incense to relax and clear your mind.

25 Infusion Pitcher

Complete the experience with the cucumber water offered at spas. Get a pitcher and create your cucumber-infused water. Or you can also use any other fruit or vegetable of your choice.
