Your Guide To Home Spa Treatments For The Perfect Staycation
Ever dream of being on a tropical island, laying on a cloud of soft sand with the sun beaming down on you? Me too, especially with this freezing January weather! Unfortunately, not many of us can just pick up and go on a vacation as often as we’d like. While spa days and beach vacations are often expensive and require us to take time off of work, there is no reason why we can’t enjoy all the same relaxing benefits from home! With these recipes you will be able to fool your mind into thinking you’re on an island getaway—all from your living room!

Banana Detox Facial
Want soft skin and a glowing complexion? Who doesn’t! Grab these quick ingredients from your kitchen and you’ll be on your way to flawless skin!

3 tbsp. chamomile essential oil
4 tbsp. lavender essential oil
Simply mix the essential oils in a small bowl, warm some water, and mix them together. Make sure the water isn’t too hot—you don’t want to remember your spa day with a burn! Place your hands in the mixture for ten minutes and then rinse your hands with lukewarm water. Pick a color and get ready to give your nails a makeover!

1 cup baking soda
