When all you need is a day at the spa…
I can literally smell the spa at the Sonoma Mission Inn…it’s my favorite place to go when I need a day away from it all. The environment is so peaceful. Fruit infused water. An assortment of teas. Raw Almonds. Dried fruit. People walking around in those plush white robes and cute little slip on sandals. Calm soothing music is playing and the smell of oils fill the air…I just love it!
My main counterpart is my best friend Kristin. We are both busy moms and rarely have a chance to enjoy time for ourselves, let alone our friendship. We have started a tradition of going to the spa for each of our birthdays and it has become such a happy place for me. Unfortunately, we each only get one birthday a year, so when you add it up thats not nearly enough spa trips as I would prefer 😉
I sometimes get to sneak there with my husband for a quick little getaway to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. I love the relaxation and pampering. I love being spoiled. And lets be real, a spa day is such an indulgent time where you literally think of nothing beyond relaxing and enjoying a peaceful massage and laying by the mineral bathes sipping a crisp glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Can I seriously go there right now?!
The reality is no, I cant just go there right now. LOL. Life is crazy busy (crazy beautiful but freaking busy) these days. The truth is sometimes I just need a break from it all – the ever-growing to-do list, chores around the house, pretty much all of the things that constitute being an adult, but there is no running off to the spa, not when in the thick of day to day life.
So what if I told you the spa can come to you? Yes, I know what you are thinking. I too, would much rather enjoy a day at the real spa versus a fake spa day in the comfort of my own home. However, life gets crazy and you cant always sneak away for those amazing leisurely afternoons with girlfriends, relaxing, indulging and just being.
That is why I am so excited for the new spa line recently released by dōTERRA. These products are just as indulgent as the ones you would find in a high-end spa and now we have the opportunity to have them at our fingertips to use on the daily! My favorite of the mix is the Replenishing Body Butter! It is so thick, creamy and hydrating plus it’s infused with Wild Orange, Douglas Fir and Frankincense, a few of my all-time favorite oils.
I have also fallen in love with the Detoxifying Mud Mask! It’s purifying and helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Infused with Juniper Berry, Myrrh and Grapefruit, I love the way the mask smells PLUS my skin feels super smooth and soft after using it. This is a weekly indulgence for me nowadays!
The complete line consists of my two favs outlined above and also includes a Refreshing Body Wash, a Hydrating Bath Bar, a super yummy Sugar Scrub, a Hand & Body lotion and three hydrating and moisturizing chapsticks. These products are the perfect addition to your at-home spa experience and make wonderful gifts.
