Set the mood.
A good at home spa day starts with getting the atmosphere just right. Begin by collecting your favorite relaxing essential oil blend and running them through your diffuser.
Apply a hair mask.
Basil is one of the most well-known and used herbs across the world, and for good reason. But did you know that basil oil can be very beneficial to the skin and hair? This is due to its antibacterial properties. Basil essential oil also offers a warm and slightly spicy aroma, and can provide a calming and renewing aromatherapy experience – perfect for an at home spa day.
In a ceramic or glass bowl or in the palm of your hand, mix 2 pumps hydrating aloe vera gel with 3-5 drops basil essential oil. Work the DIY mask into hair, starting with the ends and working your way up to the roots. Let it sit and work its magic on your hair and senses while you continue on with your spa routine!
Aloe Vera Gel, 8 oz.
Basil Essential Oil, 4 oz.
Apply a face mask.
While you have the aloe vera gel out, don’t forget to massage a full pump into clean skin. The naturally occurring beta carotene, Vitamin C and E in aloe vera gel can improve skin firmness along with tone. Let this hydrating aloe vera gel sink into the facial skin while you move on with your spa routine.
Exfoliate and Tone.
While the hair and face masks are sinking in and the diffuser is filling the air with soothing aromas, you can begin with exfoliating your body from head to toe! Exfoliating with a scrub or dry brush can do wonders for quickly brightening and toning the skin. We prefer to use pre-made scrubs, as they sweep away dead skin cells while also nourishing the skin and providing a mild aromatherapy experience.
Charcoal Salt Scrub, 10 oz.
Matcha Green Tea Scrub, 10 oz.
While you might not have a sauna or steam room in your own home, chances are you have a bathtub and/or shower. After exfoliating, run some hot water into the tub (enough to submerge your whole body) and scoop in some Epsom salts along with a scented body and bath oil. The Epsom salts will aid with loosening and relaxing muscles, while the oil will further soften and nourish skin to improve tone and texture. You can also add your favorite essential oil to the bath for a boosted aromatherapy experience.
Did you know? EOL’s massage oils can double as bath oils! Just add 2-3 pumps of your preferred massage oil under the running hot water to enjoy them in your next bath.
Anti-Cellulite Massage Oil, 9 oz.
Lavender Massage Oil, 9 oz.
Chamomile & Arnica Massage Oil, 9 oz.
Nourish and soften.
After stepping out of the bath or shower be sure to seal in the moisture with a luxurious and deeply nourishing body lotion or oil. Tip: apply your lotion while skin is still damp to better seal in the hydration.
Jojoba Oil Lotion, 8.8 oz.
Lavender Oil Lotion, 8.8 oz.
Lemon Oil Lotion, 8.8 oz.
