Spring has sprung, and along with the warmer days and more light, it’s time to think about refreshing and renovating our living spaces. MrSteam offers some simple ways to enhance your home spa. Making it a treat for all your senses can help you create a sanctuary, a place that feels special every time you slip into it.
MrSteam is here to help you with some thoughtful new ideas about your home spa, whether you own a steam shower or not. We hope you’ll feel that refurbishing your bathroom will encourage you to make it a special getaway from the world, while adding to your sense of well-being.
Set the Scene for Your Spa Experience
For your home spa to live up to its potential, the space should be clean and minimalist. Clutter is distracting and can rob you of that serene, leave-it-all-behind-at-the-door feeling. Make sure there’s a place for everything and that everything is in its place. To achieve a feeling of Zen, consider using green products to clean and purify your bathroom.
Ever notice how a professional spa is dimly lit? That’s to set the mood! So draw the curtains or pull down the blinds, keep the lights low – and invest in some candles that you can place on the counters and bank along the floors. Different sized, scented candles, beautifully arranged, will help isolate you from the cares of the world.
And think about bringing flowers and plants into your home spa as well. This touch goes a long way to not only create a place of beauty, but also connects you to nature – a sense of oneness with the natural world.
Indulge the Senses
One way a professional spa delights you is by engaging every single one of your senses. SteamTherapy can play an important role in helping you do exactly that so you create that spa experience at home.
Incorporating scent throughout the spa experience indulges your sense of smell. As you choose your candles and flowers, select fragrant ones that complement one another. If you have a steam shower, use MrSteam’s essential aromatherapy and chakra oils to infuse your steam shower with their enveloping scent. Different aromas can evoke different moods. Eucalyptus, for example, revitalizes and energizes you, while you might select lavender to help you relax, unwind, and get a good night’s sleep.
Make the room as lovely and peaceful as you can, delighting your sense of sight. Soothing colors, such as greens and blues, can impart a tranquil environment. Stock the room with beautiful objects, such as glass jars, plush towels, pillows and more. Again, candles, plants, and flowers can give your eyes something lovely to contemplate.
So, too, can TALA Bath & Body products, which are not just a joy to use in your home spa, but whose exquisite packaging can endow your bath with exotic flare.
MrSteam’s MusicTherapy can help you bring in soothing music and engage your sense of sound, piping it directly into your home spa. Or you might want to consider laying in a track of nature sounds or indulge in a guided meditation. Installing and using MrSteam’s AudioWizard will bring these lilting sounds to life.
You might also like to consider a small water fountain. Studies show that being near water — or hearing it flow — lowers your heart rate and stress levels, promoting the emotion of serenity and relaxation. Even just looking at water can prove therapeutic.
Think of all those spa treats that you’ve enjoyed – both food and drink – and how they satisfy your sense of taste. Preparing and bringing those into your home spa help make your personal sanctuary an even more all-encompassing experience.
Cucumber water, herbal teas, smoothies and juices will help keep you hydrated.
Small treats, such as healthy dips, vegetables and fruit, can be another tasty indulgence.
Of course, there is nothing that rewards the sense of touch as much as the feel of steam on your skin – helping you to unwind, opening your pores.
Using the different TALA Bath & Body products are also an exquisite way to add the element of touch to your home spa treatment – the oils, clay, and black soap, along with the exfoliating mitt, will reinvigorate your skin, leaving you feeling soft and pampered.
After your steam shower, wrap yourself in a deliciously toasty towel, warmed on a MrSteam towel warmer.
Disconnect – and Reinvigorate
Once your personal spa space is ready, now plan some “me” time. Not only is your spa setting a splendid place to soak in a tub, indulge in a steam shower, and use beauty and body products, but it’s also a wonderful hideaway from the world.
Consider placing a lounge chair in the room, where you can keep that pile of books you have been planning to read. Reading is a great escape – and people will be less prone to interrupt you if you’re behind a closed bathroom door! Play your music low, sip some tea or a smoothie, allow yourself to drift away from the cares of the world – perhaps even lapse into a luxurious nap.
Giving your home spa a spring makeover will help you rediscover the delights of relaxation. Whether you seclude yourself from the world for a few heavenly moments, or invite someone to join you in your wonderfully renewed space, we’re certain you’ll be glad you spent time rethinking how refreshing this room can add to your feelings of wellness and contentment!
