Do you know you can treat yourself to an at-home spa experience without spending wads of your hard-earned cash? Are you looking for ideas and ways to pamper yourself if you need some alone time, or invite your friends to a spa party?

 

You can actually create a variety of spa treatments with common household ingredients, such as avocado, apple cider vinegar, oatmeal, brown sugar and yogurt.

 

So take your own sweet time, and treat your whole body, including your hair, face and body by using the following DIY At Home Spa recipes.

 

Avocado-based DIY At Home Spa Recipe

 

Avocado Facial mask

 

Avocados make a moisturizing mask that’s nourishing for dry or sun-exposed skin. To prepare this face mask, you will need 1 avocado, peeled and seeded and 2 teaspoons sweet almond oil or extra virgin olive oil.

You mash avocado with a fork or using 2 spoons and add oil.

 

Apply the mixture to face and leave on 15 to 20 minutes.

Rinse with lukewarm water follow by cold water to close up the skin pores and pat dry with towel. You finish with some moisturizer on your face.

 

Avocado Hair Mask

 

To prepare this hair mask, you will need 1 avocado, peeled and cut into chunks,2 tablespoons heavy cream and1 tablespoon raw organic honey (or manuka honey).

 

Mix ingredients in a blender. Comb mixture through freshly washed hair. Wrap head in plastic (a grocery bag will do), and cover with a towel. Let sit for 15 minutes, and rinse well.

 

This deep hair conditioning treatment will leave your hair soft and silky. The fats in the avocado and heavy cream are rich in emollients that quickly penetrate the hair, while the honey keeps your scalp’s moisture level at an optimum balance — not too dry or too oily — and acts as a natural antibacterial agent.

 

Avocado Body Wrap

 

To prepare this body wrap, you will need 1 very ripe avocado, 1 cup of heavy cream and one quarter cup of Aloe Vera gel. You will also need to get lots of towels and a plastic wrap.

 

You will blend the avocado pulp, cream and Aloe Vera gel to get a thick paste. Place lots of old towels down where you will nap later. Apply paste to body. Wash hands and loosely wrap over masked areas. You just lie down and relax for one hour before you rinse off.

 

Apple Cider Vinegar-based DIY At Home Spa Recipe

 

Apple Cider Vinegar Detoxifying Face Mask

 

To create this vinegar face mask you will need half a cup of cooked oatmeal, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

 

You mix the ingredients together in a bowl to form a paste which you can apply to your face and neck while avoiding the area near to your eyes. You let the mask stay on your skin for up to 15 minutes before you rinse off with lukewarm water follow by cold water to close up the skin pores. You dry your face and finish with some moisturizer.

 

Apple cider vinegar can restore the skin pH level. Apple cider vinegar’s antiseptic and antibacterial properties also benefit acne sufferers. It can also improve the overall condition of skin, infusing softness, reducing redness and treating age spots.

 

Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Mask (Good for Oily Hair)

 

To create this hair mask, you combine one quarter cup of apple cider vinegar with the grated peel of an entire lemon and allow it to set for 15 minutes to absorb the excess oil from your scalp, and then rinse in the shower.

Apple cider vinegar will remove build up from styling products and conditioners and strengthen the hair shaft, leaving you with soft, shiny strands. It will also balance hair’s pH level, kill bacteria, and is a cure for dandruff.

 

Apple Cider Vinegar Body Scrub

 

To prepare this body scrub, you will need half a cup Oatmeal, 1 tablespoon dark organic Honey (or manuka honey), 1 tablespoon Apple cider vinegar and 1 teaspoon finely ground Almonds

 

You first warm up the honey a bit, but not too hot. Then you mix all ingredients well until you have a smooth paste. You can now gently apply it to your skin and scrub to exfoliate. Then let the mixture dry. Wash it off with warm water and a warm damp washcloth; end with a splash of cold water. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally tone and moisturize

 

Yogurt-based DIY At Home Spa Recipe

 

Yogurt Face Mask

 

This mask is very simple to prepare because you only just need 3 tablespoons of plain or vanilla Greek yogurt. You just apply the yogurt on your face using your fingertips or a small makeup brush. You let the yogurt stay on your skin for up to 15 minutes. After this, you rinse with lukewarm water and follow by cold water to close up the skin pores. You dry your face and apply some moisturizer.

 

Greek yogurt is really high in protein and calcium and has happy live bacteria cultures that make your skin glow. Yogurt also has exfoliating properties, it helps to close the pores and stimulates the production of collagen (a substance needed to maintain the elasticity of the skin and prevent wrinkles).

 

Yogurt Body Scrub

 

To prepare this body scrub, you will need 3 tablespoons baby oil

1 tablespoon organic plain yogurt and 1 tablespoon granulated white sugar.

 

You mix the ingredients together and massage all over your body in a gentle scrubbing motion. Rinse well with warm water. Remember that sugar will dissolve quite quickly so this recipe won’t last very long. Often it is wise to make this one just before you get into the shower. This body scrub recipe will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.

To prepare this hair mask, you will need half a cup organic plain Yogurt and half a cup of raw organic honey (or manuka honey).You combine the ingredients in a bowl.Apply this to your hair, working in sections, from roots to ends.Let the mixture sits for about 20 minutes.Rinse with warm water and again with cold water to seal the cuticle.You shampoo, condition, and style.

To have a romantic time at home, convert your bedroom or bathroom into a lovebird den by choosing the best spa products, the right music, appropriate lighting, and foods that appeal to your senses.

 

The various items needed for home spa treatments include clean towels, massage oil, scented candles, salt scrub, and others. For food, you can choose dark chocolate, dessert wine, fresh fruit like grapes, and some of your favorite snacks that help release happy hormones in your body.

 

You can also make homemade facial cleansers and provide a lovely cleansing session to your spouse. Pampering yourself at least once a month can relieve your stress and rejuvenate your body inside out. So why not indulge your equally stress-relieving sweet tooth at the same time by having a chocolate spa treatment?

 

There are several spas and hotels nationwide that offer different spa treatments using chocolate as the main ingredient and theme. However, if you are on a budget and cannot afford to travel to the nearest chocolate spa, there are several homemade recipes you can use for your own chocolate spa treatment right in the privacy of your home.

 

Here are some of my favourite DIY chocolate spa recipes which you can use at the comfort of your home to pamper your body and your spouse’s.

 

DIY Chocolate Spa Recipe 1

 

What you need is 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, 1 ounce honey, 1/2 cup conventional cocoa powder and 1 ounce vanilla extract.

 

Stir the sugar with 2 tablespoons of honey to create a uniform mixture. Spread the mixture throughout the body in rhythmic circular upward movements emphasizing on knees, elbows and soles. Rinse off with water.

Stir the chocolate, vanilla and the remaining honey to create a homogenous mixture. Apply mask all over the body and let stand 10 to 15 minutes. Remove with water.

 

DIY Chocolate Spa Recipe 2

 

Combine 4 tablespoons ground coffee with equal amount of cocoa powder. Add 8 tablespoon whole milk to the mixture. Stir until you have a smooth paste.

With fingers or a make-up wedge, spread the mixture over face and neck. You may also apply the mixture to other areas of the body where extra softness is needed.

 

Leave the mixture on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Pat your body dry.

 

DIY Chocolate Spa Recipe 3

 

Take a handful of cocoa butter and warm it until it melts, but don’t overheat it. Mix the cocoa butter with ¾ cup of white sugar and ¼ cup of dark brown sugar to form a paste. You can then start scrubbing by spreading this paste over your body.

 

DIY Chocolate Spa Recipe 4

 

You will need 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon of raw organic honey (or manuka honey) and ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract.  Combine the honey, cocoa powder and vanilla extract in a bowl and mix well. Then you add 1-2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil into the bowl, and stir the contents in the bowl to form a paste. If the paste is too thick, you can add a little bit more olive oil.

 

This step is optional. If you want, you can add 1 teaspoon of sweet almond oil to add an extra moisturizer to the chocolate body scrub. Lastly, you can either add 3 drops of lavender oil to make a chocolate lavender scrub or add 3 drop of essential orange oil to make a chocolate orange scrub.

 

You wet the parts of your body you want to exfoliate with the scrub. Hands, elbows and feet all benefit from a cocoa scrub because the skin on these areas is often dry. Gently rub the scrub onto the area using a circular motion. Rinse the area with warm water.

 

DIY Chocolate Spa Recipe 5

 

You will need ½ cup of cocoa powder, 6 tablespoons of whole cream milk, 3 tablespoons of raw organic honey (or manuka honey), 3 tablespoons of ground oatmeal, and 2 tablespoons of ground almonds, 3 drops of sweet almond oil and 3 drops of lavender oil.

 

You mix cocoa powder, milk, honey, oatmeal and ground almonds to form a paste and then you add in sweet almond and lastly lavender oil. You can now start scrubbing, applying the paste on your face, neck and body. Keep it there for 15 minutes before you rinse off.
