A lush towel and robe. Aromatherapy. Soothing music. And some body pampering! Welcome to your DIY homestead spa. It couldn’t be easier! We’ll show you how. Take these 10 simple steps to completely relax and spoil yourself regularly.

DIY Homestead Spa Step 2: Essential Oil Diffuser and/or pretty candles to set the perfect mood.Step 1: Stay Hydrated With Lemon Water

Prepare a small pitcher of lemon water to drink while you soak in the tub (We’re getting to that). Lemon water is rich in vitamin C, hydrates you, aids in digestion, may improve skin tone, and even supports weight loss.

Step 2: Get That Essential Oil Diffuser Workin’

Diffusers are great for transforming the average bathroom into your own personal spa. Keep a handful of essential oils on hand that you find soothing and great for relaxing. Yes, you can use candles instead. Better yet, light some unscented candles even if you a diffuser to create the perfect atmosphere for your homestead spa.

Not just a plain bath! Step up the spoil factor with a bath bomb, liquid bubble bath, an herbal pouch, etc.

Step 4: Play Some Tunes

I love sound therapy for my homestead spa time. It’s so relaxing! You choose whatever music or sounds give you a sense of calm and help you enjoy the entire experience. Remember, it’s all about you, gorgeous farmgirl!

DIY Homestead Spa Step 7: Soak in a bubby, scented bath.Step 5: Face Mask Time

As the bathtub fills up, deep clean your face and neck with a seaweed mask. This is especially important to do if you’ve been out in the sunlight all day. Put your hair up in a towel or bun and gently smooth on the mask. If you don’t have seaweed mask handy, that’s okay. Use what you’ve got! Clay masks are also fantastic for removing toxins and smoothing the skin. Even a mashed avocado makes a great face mask!

Step 6: Deep Breathing

Take a deep breath in, allowing the abdomen to expand gently. Hold it for a moment or two before exhaling. Repeat 5 times. This will lower your blood pressure, relax your muscles and prepare you for the goodness to come. This is YOUR homestead spa time. Your “me time.”

Remember to relax and take your time. Don’t think about anything but the scents, sounds, and the way your body feels. Exfoliate with a loofah or sugar scrub. Use a bath pillow to lay back and be absolutely still for at least 5 minutes before rinsing. For the best results soak for about 20-25 minutes. Pat yourself dry, but don’t rub all the moisture off! You’ll need it for the next step.

Step 8: Moisturize Your Skin

Immediately choose your favorite body butter fragrance or natural lotion. Your moist skin will drink it in and leave your skin softer than ever. Massage the body butter or lotion in, especially in any areas showing cellulite (Yeah, I’m there with ya). Don’t forget your feet and hands. We farming, gardening gals are on our feet and use our hands a LOT. That’s why we call it a homestead spa. Now wrap yourself up in the warmth of a comfy bath robe.

Step 9: Remember That Face Mask?

Wash off the mask gently with a soft cloth and warm water. Some like to finish with a splash of cold water to close the pores. You do what works best for your skin, but don’t forget to moisturize and use an anti-aging serum.

Step 10: Finish Your Lemon Water

Before you re-enter real life, finish your lemon water! This keeps the cycle of detoxifying in motion, and you’ll be hydrated from the inside out. Slip into bed. Read a book, magazine or write a passage in your journal. What a restorative evening!
