The Essentials You Need To Unwind From This Week With an At-Home Spa Experience

From the perfect candle to just the right bath bomb, here’s how to turn your home into a luxury spa experience.

Let’s face it: this week has been draining. Since the country has been collectively holding its breath since Tuesday, it’s probably rare for anyone to say they’ve been caught up on their sleep, or awake and alert rather than stuck in the cloudy, foggy haze hanging over us right now.

But the weekend has finally presented itself, and you deserve to unwind. Take the next couple of days to really indulge in self care, both mentally and physically—goodness knows you deserve it. And what better way to relax than to make a spa for yourself in the comfort of your very own home?

Below, we share our favorite must-have essentials to unwind from this week and treat yourself to a stay-at-home spa retreat.

The ANJELICA Candle by Boy Smells

At any spa, candles are key. They set the ambience of relaxation and a stress-free lifestyle, and the aromas they give off balance and cleanse your senses, plus the flickering light of the wick replaces any need for harsh artificial lighting. The Anjelica candle by Boy Smells brings the scents of luxury and lushness into your home—Sicilian lemon, bitter orange, powdery musk, jasmine and angelica seed. It will awaken and revitalize your senses and transform your personal domestic space into a regal, lush nature atomsphere—plus, the glossy green wax makes for perfectly cute decor.

Is any spa retreat complete without the perfect robe, with just the right amount of soft fuzziness? The answer is no. A spa weekend at home without the comfort and simple luxury of a robe to make you feel like you’re at a world-class sauna is just a weekend at home, really—the right robe shapes and defines the relaxation aspect key to any unwinding activities. The Hamam Spa Robe comes with a matching headband, both made of 100% cotton, to truly bring the spa into your home. Plus, the hood makes it perfect not only for drying off and staying cozy after a relaxing bath or shower, but ideal for lounging around the house in, too, and bringing comfort with you wherever you go.

One of the most important factors in partaking in a relaxing spa experience is taking a bath. Not just any regular bath, but the perfect bath—water temperature just right, maybe a glass of champagne next to the tub, and, of course, the perfect bath bomb to make the water that much more special. The Chill Pill by OUAI is a jasmine and rose scented bath bomb infused with lush oils to restore, moisturize, hydrate and sooth skin without leaving behind a greasy residue or clogging pores. Your skin will thank you, and so will your mind.
