There’s always a good reason for an at-home spa day to focus on self-care and some well-deserved R&R. When your unable to visit your favorite spa you can create it at home. As you create your spa experience why not incorporate some CBD into your routine?
Hotels, salons, and spas have started incorporating CBD into their spa offerings with good reason. CBD is relaxing and restorative when it penetrates your body either by mouth or skin and has powerful anti inflammatory effects when applied to the skin.
By incorporating CBD into scrubs, facials, massages, and more the luxurious spa experience is amplified. But we can’t book a spa day every day, no matter how much we’d like. Luckily, you can replicate the experience at home with your own products and processes.
From the experts at Madrigal Creatives, here are our seven easy steps to help you recreate a luxurious and relaxing spa-like experience at home but this time incorporating the healing benefits of full-spectrum CBD with natural botanicals.
1. Engage your senses
A large part of why going to a spa feels so luxe is because all five of your senses are actively engaged. When setting up an at-home experience, incorporate elements that are pleasing to your senses of sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing, Set the mood with relaxing music, dim the lights and set out nice fluffy towels and a cozy robe.
Drop an AAAH CBD Bath Bomb into the tub The ultra-pure natural botanicals in Madrigal Creatives AAAH CBD bath bombs, like frankincense, lavender, rosemary and ginger will immediately trigger your senses into a relaxed and soothing state as the effervescence of the bath bomb starts to dissolve and dissipate. No need for an essential oil diffuser here. The carefully selected essential oils all chosen for their restorative properties will have your mind and body saying AAAH and your senses engaged in your spa experience.
Top Tip: Stay in bath for at least 20 minutes to allow the scent to penetrate your senses and the CBD and essential oils to penetrate your body!
2. Prepare Your Mind.
When you step into a spa your have been waiting in anticipation of the relaxing feeling. Your mind is prepped but when you are at home you may need some assistance to prep your mind for relaxation and spa chill like vibes.
We get in the moment with a big tall glass of water and some Calm Spray. This water soluble hemp spray will relax body and mind and because it is water soluble will worker faster to relieve anxiety and prepare your mind for some serious pampering. Calm spray is now available on Amazon!
Top Tip: Hydrate with a lemon water and add add Calm Hemp Spray so your spa like calm can begin from the inside out!
3. Draw Out Impurities
A good face mask is a quintessential spa indulgence. A do-it-yourself version draws out impurities and contributes to an even complexion by quelling inflammation. A simple amazing DIY mask is a 1:2 mix of Kaolin Clay and Sea Kelp Powder both available on Amazon.
Roll on CBD oil combined with stress relieving and inflammation fighting terpenes, such as Madrigal Creatives Relieve Plus! Wellness Roll-On under a clay-based mask. Apply to your entire face except your eye area and leave on for 10 to 20 minutes before rinsing (we like to step into tub with mask already on). The concentrated CBD oil, natural terpenes and essential oils – including arnica – will help reduce inflammation and nourish your skin while the clay draws out impurities.
Top Tip: No time for a mask? Roll on Relieve plus under eyes and above for a puffiness fighter (especially useful after a late night!) PLUS roll on temples and back of neck in the vagus nerve area for relaxing the central nervous system and fending off any tension headaches.
4. Treat your eyes
Cucumbers and Relieve Plus aren’t the only way to soothe tired eyes. You can also boil two green teabags in milk, then refrigerate them until cool. Place over your eyes above your mask and Relieve Plus for 10-20 minutes to naturally refresh tired eyes.
5. Dry brush like a pro
Dry brushing has been gaining popularity with good reason. Dry brushing has many potential benefits that range from promoting smoother skin to helping with lymphatic drainage. Joanna Vargas Founder of Joanna Vargas Salon loves Dry Brushing since it “increases blood flow and stimulates collagen production, which will help to strengthen your skin. It also dramatically increases elasticity, so it's great for lifting and toning."
Dry brushing is easy to do at home and will complement any spa routine. Before you step into your bath water, use a natural bristle brush and in short, circular strokes, move inward and upward toward the direction of your heart. Madrigal Creatives offers a high quality “Living More” Dry Brush with an ergonomic, natural wooden handle.
Top Tip: Dry Brushing also helps with cellulite!
