At-Home Spa Recipies That Can Help You Relax Between Trips to the Day Spa!
School is right around the corner, so though you’ll want to make sure to schedule at least one more extensive spa day prior to the kids or you going back to school, make sure to also supplement your day spa trips with some home recipes as well.
There are some fun recipes that you can make with ingredients in your kitchen that will allow you to partake in a spa day at home with your daughters--just in time to allow them to de-stress before going back to the rigors of school. If you’re a teacher, you may want to have a warm milk bath almost every night once school is in session!
Have some laughs and enjoy the aromatherapy at home until you can get back to the day spa to rejuvenate. Here are a couple recipes that you might want to try:
Cinnamon Oatmeal Milk Bath
Place 1 cup powdered milk, 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup finely ground oatmeal, 2 tsp. cornstarch, 1 tsp. cream of tartar and 1 tsp. cinnamon in a food processor and process to combine. Put in a clean, tightly covered, moisture-proof container. It will keep indefinitely.
To Use: Add about 1/2 cup of the Cinnamon Oatmeal Milk Bath to a full tub of warm water, and enjoy the soak.

Coconut Tea Body Scrub
You can mix coconut oil with regular sugar or brown sugar, use two parts sugar to one part oil. Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, so you can melt it prior to mixing. Then mix in essential oils or herbs like rosemary or lavender, or open some of your favorite tea and mix that in for a wonderful aroma. One idea for this scrub can be found at Le Zoe Musings blog.
