Spa at Home: Turn your Home into a Spa-like Oasis

The minute you walk into Mowana Spa, your senses are treated to a wave of calm. All elements from the wall colour, décor, the scent in the air and sounds are purposefully thought-out to give you a multi-sensory experience.

If you're in need of me-time but the stress of knowing that your favourite spa sanctuary is still closed, don't worry! We've put together a few tips on how to recreate a little piece of paradise in your own home until we're able to welcome you back to the real deal. 

Looking after your physical and mental wellbeing is of utmost importance, especially during these trying times, so make sure you set aside a few minutes daily to "spa at home". You can create spa experiences with your fellow housemates, partner or alone. 


Create a Sanctuary

Find a space which you would like to dedicate as your "spa at home" – this may be your bathroom, bedroom or home office. Any place you can shut the door and escape for a few minutes will do just fine. Now decorate. Add cushions, scented candles, luxurious bath robes, a pile of wellness magazines and gorgeously scented products. Nothing is stopping you from going the extra mile by adding champagne on ice.


Cosy Gown

A fluffy gown and comfortable slippers scream, "spa day" and is of course an essential part of slipping into complete relaxation. 


Aromatherapy Candles

Not only do they create an ambiance of calmness, warmth and relaxation but their scents are specifically formulated to inspire the mood you crave. Scented candles that use quality essential oils can promote relaxation, reduce anxiety and stress and induce quality sleep.


Bring elements of nature inside

Fill your space with natural elements and organic textures of wood, stone and add live plants to freshen the air. Even adding prints of nature will add to the idea of bringing the outdoors inside.


Soothing Sounds

Ever wonder what sets the tone of a spa day? Soothing nature and instrumental sounds instantly puts your mind at ease because these soft and repetitive tunes is something you easily zone out to. Source a spa playlist and prepare to relax.


You can easily try DIY treatments like a facial, manicure, pedicure, body scrub and bath fizzies. Keep a look out for our next blog for at-home treatment recipes and tips.
