Did you know that there is no need to spend your hard earned money on spa treatments in order to pamper yourself when you can learn how to make homemade spa products with at home spa recipes. I’ve found that many recipes use ingredients you may even already have in your kitchen and that alone helps you save money. You can achieve the same results you would from going to a spa by making your own spa recipes at home. Quick makeovers can leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated and let’s face it, who doesn’t want that?!

At Home Spa Recipes

Homemade Eye TreatmentsYour eyes are said to be the window to your soul. After all, the eyes are typically what a person focuses on when having a conversation with someone. Unfortunately, the eyes are also what makes some of us appear to be older than we really are. That said here are some great at home spa recipes that will bring life back to your eyes and can shave years off of your appearance. Thinly slice a cucumber and place a slice over each eye. Leave on for up to twenty minutes or less if you are short on time.

Another thing I have found that is great for puffy eyes is Tea.  Tea is a great way to reduce puffy eyes. Just place a damp tea bag over your eyes for as long as you can. Its been my experience that if you combine those with a good night’s sleep and your eyes will feel much better in the morning.

I also love getting facials, and facials are a popular spa treatment many people enjoy. There are so many different at home spa recipes concerning facials but a very common treatment involves the combination of oatmeal and honey.  This facial recipe is great for naturally oily or acne-prone skin and works wonders as a mild exfoliate. For this recipe you will need half a cup of oatmeal, two tbsp of honey and a quarter cup buttermilk or plain yogurt. Grind the oatmeal until it is very fine. In a separate bowl mix the yogurt and honey together. Slowly add the oatmeal, mixing together until the consistency is smooth. Apply to your face and neck. Leave it on for twenty minutes then rinse with warm water. Use daily or how often you like.

Our feet take most of our body’s daily abuse, especially for those of us who seem to be on our feet more often than not. The spa can offer wonderful relaxing foot treatments but now you can have the same experience in the comfort of your own home. This at home spa recipe is for the feet and is to be left on overnight so a clean pair of cotton socks are also needed. Grind a quarter cup of almonds and a quarter cup of dry oatmeal.  Combine almonds and oatmeal with three tbsp cocoa butter (food grade) and two tbsp of honey. Apply the mixture on your clean feet, rubbing in really good. Put on your clean cotton socks and do not remove until the next morning. Rinse your feet in cold water and you now have moisturized, refreshed feet. You’ll never want to visit the spa again once you see how easy and inexpensive it is to treat yourself at home.

These are just a few of the recipes I use from the Hand Crafters Companion eBook. There are dozens of recipes and if you are looking for at home spa recipes than this is the best recipe book I have found!
