DIY Valentine’s Day Spa

Valentine’s Day is a day to pamper the ones we care about most and show them how much they mean to us — but the one person we pamper the least? Ourselves! Show your body and mind some love this holiday with a spa day at home.

Easy Tips to Have a Safe Self-Care Spa Day

There’s nothing quite like a self-care day to take the stress from the week off your shoulders. But if your self-care routine ends up causing problems like flooding, clogged drains, and excessive water waste, you may end up more stressed than relaxed. Follow these simple tips to keep your spa day free from problems and worry:

Draw Up a Bubble Bath

Bubble baths are a safer alternative to a pampering home spa experience. Bubbles dissolve easily in water and are typically introduced to your bath by way of a gel or other liquid, which won’t get lodged in your drains on the way down. Compared to bath bombs, which can cause a slew of issues with your plumbing, bubble baths are a tried and true relaxation method for anyone.

Make a Cup of Tea

Herbal tea blends are a great way to relax and spend some time with yourself. There are many kinds of tea that promote calmness, including:

  • Peppermint
  • Rose
  • Chamomile
  • Lavender

These herbs are all calming and anxiety-reducing, even if they come blended with other herbs. Make sure to keep an eye on the box for any mention of caffeine, as this will give you more energy than relaxation. As always, dispose of tea leaves and blooms in the trash and not down the drain to protect your pipes long-term.
