Before we talk about the different treatments, recipes and homemade spa products you can make at home, let’s go over quickly how you can make your home feel more like a spa through the décor, the air quality and simple to make drinks .
Make Your Home Look Like A Spa
You can make your home look and feel like a spa by using a few Balinese interior design tips. The number one principle to tropical décor is to bring the outdoors indoors. So in many topical homes and in high end spas you will see the place decorated with natural materials such as wood, stone and plants. Indoor plants are great as they provide a green backdrop and clean air. Try and use wooden or stone ornaments, and bamboo shades to infuse more natural materials into your home. In the bathroom use stone bowls and a wooden bath mat. See if you can include a water feature somewhere in the house such as a simple plug in bamboo fountain. All these décor pieces help bring a more tropical, relaxed and natural feel into a home.
A Home That Smells Like A Spa
A home that has clean and fresh air will make you feel like you’re in spa. Ways to keep the air clean include using indoor plants or an air purifier with an inbuilt ionizer. Then there are a number of aromatherapy oils that can be used to provide a tropical fragrance. Different fragrances provide different moods, so you can choose between relaxing aromas or more stimulating ones.
