HomeBlog3 Tips for the Perfect At Home Spa Treatment
Part of the beauty of an at-home spa treatment is the ritual of creating space for yourself to relax and unwind. How you create an external sacred space sets the foundation for you to tap into your internal sacred space to provide yourself with nourishment that goes beyond the surface and seeps into the soul. While we all have only so many resources (and finances!) at our disposal, here are some little things you can do that can have a big impact on your at-home spa treatment.
Tip 1#: Set the Mood
Engage all of the senses to really benefit from the experience. This includes sight, scent, touch, and sound. Plants and flowers instantly bring life into any space and when brought around a bathtub or foot bath, create a welcoming, serene environment. Candles help to create the ambiance. Burning Sage and palo santo are two of our favorites for clearing the air energetically, and they both have a grounding, relaxing effect. Or pick your favorite essential oils to diffuse or incense to burn to heighten the aroma.
Tip#2: Grab your All-Natural Skincare Products
Live By Being skincare collection exists to help you turn everyday skincare routines into wellness rituals so you can find calm in the chaos and reconnect with who you really are. They really set the tone for your spa experience, and they each have distinct ingredients and properties that ground, elevate, and clear skin + soul.

For the facial, french green clay exfoliates while healing lavender absorbs surface oils and toxins. This careful blend stimulates pores while toning overall complexion.
Tip#3: Unplug and Be Intentional
Sometimes, belief and thought process is our biggest roadblock to actually creating time to take care of ourselves. We think that if we dedicate some time to ourselves that we’re being selfish. We think that there are so many other things that need to be done before we can relax let go. Turn off the phone and shut down the computer (because it can wait until tomorrow). Remember that you, as much as anyone else, is deserving of your care and attention.
Mothering doesn’t just occur between mother and child when she gives birth or adopts. While that is the place that mothering begins, it is by no means the place where mothering ends. It is from our mothers that we can learn how to love wholeheartedly and practice loving unconditionally; they serve as role models for how to care for others with open hearts.
In honor of International Women’s Day - and Women’s History Month - we want to celebrate bold, courageous women who have used the transformative power of love that lives inside of them to change the world, those who will always serve as role models and inspirations to women of all generations, ethnicities, backgrounds, and life paths.
