Create a Spa at home Gift Ideas

I absolutely love a good pamper session and this will usually involve a hot bath, my latest book, face masks, hair masks and sometimes a candle. Just lately I have been hit by a spate of illnesses and it is so unlike me to catch anything, that when I do catch something, I get it really bad - Chest infection, Sinusitis, a dry cough and then this horrific cold sore, something I haven't had for a good 3 years now, appeared. So I needed some time out, some me time and some de-stressing.

One item I use a lot of in my baths are salts, not just any salt but Dead Sea Salt. The Dead Sea ,which is rumoured to be over 15 million years old the Dead Sea have been renowned for their therapeutic benefits since ancient times and they are packed full of key minerals such as:
  • Magnesium - An essential mineral for staying healthy. It helps to improve mood and relieve stress as well s encourage healthy skin tissue and aid detoxification.
  • Sodium - Helps cells absorb nourishment and expel waste
  • Calcium - Prevents water retention, increases circulation and strengthen bones and nails
  • Potassium - Helps to balance the skin's natural moisture levels and is a crucial mineral to replenish following intense exercise.
  • Bromides - Acts to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscle
  • Chlorine - Is necessary for maintaining the correct balance of alkaline and acid in the body
  • Iodine - Is vital for both energy and cell metabolism
With that in mind, there are some incredible gift sets and products that would be amazing for Christmas and these include:

Dead Sea Spa Magik products have been available all over the world as 'home spa treatments' since 1981 a and as a brand, they are offer some affordable luxury products to use at home. This Relax Kit which costs just £12 and includes a duo of Bath and Shower Gel and some Dead Sea Bath Salts.

The Dead Sea Spa Magik Refreshing Bath Shower Gel is described as being a luxurious, foaming bath shower gel, which leaves the body refreshed and revitalised. it is fortified with a blend of mud, salt and mineral extracts from the Dead Sea and can be used in the bath or shower.  The Dead Sea Spa Magik Dead Sea Bath Salts are renowned for their exceptional beautifying and medicinial properties as they have a unique ability to attract and retain moisture and they are just incredible, especially if you do have dry skin.  Dead Sea Salts are also incredible at soaking away tensions, aches and pains

Westlab is one of my favourite brands and again they offer a real luxury of having that spa like treatment at home.  The Relax Dead Sea Salt Scrub is just incredible.

The scrub is infused with a a blend of essential oils which includes relaxing frankincense, calming lavender, soothing geranium and uplifting bergamot and they work alongside apricot, rice bran and antioxidant vitamin E and by bringing everything together they work to not only boost elasticity, protect and repair skin, they also eliminate dead and dull skill cells, provide anti-inflammatory properties, soften and regenerate the body.  The Dead Sea Salts with Colloidal Oatmeal, Lavender and Chamomile are simply incredible. Designed to nourish, protect and soothe, if you suffer with dry, itchy skin then these are the salts to try as they help reduce the itch scratch cycle.

Finally we have Spa Find Shimmer Body Collection and it is described as being a perfect duo skincare treatment for an at-home spa treat. Inside the box you will find two incredible products the first is the Spa Find Heavenly Hydration Salt Brushing and then the Spa Find Heavenly Hydration Re-Mineralize+ HS Body Balm.
Create a Spa at home Gift Ideas
The Salt Brushing Scrub, which is Spa Finds number one selling product combines pure Dead Sea Salt which removes dead skin cells and revives skin texture with Vitamin E to protect and aid skin repair. Added to that is Grapefruit extract which stimulates the circulation and the lymphatic system to aid detoxification and finally Coconut Oil intensely nourishes the epidermis leaving skin soft and glowing. What I love about this Salt Scrub is firstly how absolutely divine it smells, it is so fresh and when it is massaged onto the skin, it isn't as abrasive as I was expecting, but it does an amazing job at removing dead and dry skin cells.


The second product which is the ReMineralize Plus HS (High Strength) Body Balm which contains Mineral-Age Nanoplex complex. Ingredients such as Zinc, Copper and Magnesium provide the skin with a much-needed boost of moisture especially if it is dehydrated.   What I hadn't expected to find with this Body Balm is the Citrus aroma which is really fresh smelling and just divine when massaged onto the skin because not only does the balm leave your skin feeling nourished and hydrated in a little cocoon, it also lightly scents the skin with the citrus aroma.

So if like me you are have never had a Spa Day with all the treatments, but like the idea and opportunity to use some products to create your own version at home, these products should help you do just that!
