DIY Spa Day for Mom

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and what better gift to give to your mother than a day at the spa! Yes, a spa day can be expensive and if you have waited until last minute it may be hard to find an appointment for Mother’s Day. Don’t worry, we have put together a way you can transform your Sunspace Sunroom into a Spa your mom is sure to love!

To get your Sunroom spa ready you’ll need a few things:

  • Hot Towels
  • Scented Candles (unscented candles will work as well)
  • Face mask
  • Sugar Scrub
  • Foot Soak
  • Soothing music
  • Steam to open up the pores
  • Rose water (water with some essential oils in it as well will work to create a soothing atmosphere)
  • Comfy Chairs
  • Robe
  • Slippers
  • Snacks

You’ll need to get the steam music and candles lit prior to bringing your mom in the room. Trying to find a great face mask, sugar scrub and foot soak may be hard to find and expensive. We have a couple of recipes so you can use ingredients you have around the house to make your own.

Banana Facial Mask

What you’ll need:

  • 1 medium size ripe banana
  • ¼ Plain Yogurt (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons honey (optional)

Mash up the banana in a bowl into a smooth paste, add in the yogurt and honey and stir until all ingredients are mixed and smooth. Gently apply the mask to the face and neck, wrap a warm towel around the neck and let it set for 1- to 20 minutes. Rinse with cold water.

Coffee Body Scrub with Coconut Oil

What you’ll need:

  • 1 Cup ground coffee
  • 1 cup sugar/salt (sugar is better)
  • ½ cup organic Coconut oil
  • ½ Tablespoon Cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract (optional)

Melt the coconut oil and let it cool, but don’t let it become solid again. Mix all the ingredients together and store it in a mason jar. Apply scrub to arms & hands to reduce stress and awaken your skin. Rinse when complete.

Honey and Lemon Foot Bath

What you’ll need:

  • Pedicure Bowl
  • Warm Water
  • Foot Stones (optional)
  • ½ cup of Honey
  • 1 Tablespoon of Apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Lemon, Sliced

Pour the water into the pedicure bowl and add the foot stones then add in the other ingredients, stir and have your mother place her feet in the soak. Let soak for about 30 minutes, remove feet dry them off and rub them with lotion and cover them with some warm fuzzy socks for the rest of the day.

With your mom being pampered all day and being able to enjoy the beautiful views of he outdoors in your Sunroom, your mother will be so grateful for this DIY spa day. Bring in some of her favorite foods for her to snack on throughout the day and maybe even a glass of wine. The best part about this Mother’s Day gift is she will have leftover sugar scrub to use whenever she wants to remember her favorite Mother’s Day.
