Bath and Body Tips
Bring the Spa Home with Bath and Body Gift Baskets
Everyone loves a day at the spa. But sometimes, it’s even more relaxing to have a day of pampering at home, in your own homemade spa. The trick to making it a special experience, however, is in the products you use. For that reason, it’s a great idea to add a spa gift set to your wish list. That way, when you’re ready to indulge, you’ll have everything you need to escape into your own retreat and enjoy some well-deserved “me” time.
So what will you need? Along with a stack of fluffy towels and a terrycloth robe – and maybe a nice glass of champagne, or a cup of herbal tea – you’ll need the basics: soaps, lotions, exfoliating scrubs and, of course, scented candles. But if you want to really do it up right, include some luxury items in your spa kit.
Ahava Spa Kits offers several items that are intended to smooth and soothe, with all the promises of anti-aging results. And, they come straight from the Dead Sea. The scrubbing butter is an artful blend of natural oils, Dunaliella seaweed, sugar and Dead Sea salt. Combined they create a luxurious exfoliating butter, with a Tangerine and Cedarwood scent, that rids skin of dead cells and then hydrates it for a renewed look and feel. Also included in the set is Ahava Pure Spa’s Body Sorbet Caress. Just what you’d find in a spa, this cream-gel melts into your skin, allowing the Dead Sea minerals to do their magic. You’ll enjoy the sweet scent of green apples while you smooth it on. If you love fruit-scented products, you can purchase Fruits and Passion bath sets that will truly tantalize your senses.
As you slip into your bath, make sure your spa gift basket includes a high-end soap. Scottish Fine Soaps are a luxury spa-quality item that will enhance your bath time. The company’s Vintage Fragrance Soap is available in a variety of scents including Seaweed. The packaging suggests you’re in for a treat, as the triple-milled soap is wrapped in tissue and packed in an embossed tin.
Sprinkle some herb-infused bath salts into the tub before you step in. Light a scented candle and enjoy the fragrance. And then sink into a luxurious at-home day of pampering that will rival any day at the spa.
