When I need some pampering, or just want to get gorgeous and relaxed for a date night with my man, I love to have fun doing at-home spa treatments. The great thing about a good DIY body scrub or facial, is that it costs very little (Always great to watch the budget, right?!), and many times uses items or products you already have at home. DIY spa products also make great gift ideas for your girlfriends!  From the hair on top of your head to your toes, we’ve put together a list of 25 relaxing ideas for an easy DIY spa night that will have you feeling serene!

  1. What a FABULOUS round-up, Angie!! I am loving all of these different ideas we can try. I am super excited about #8! My skin is SO oily… and who knew carrot juice could help!! So cool!

  2. LOVE this Angie! I want to try them all. Especially 9 and 10. My girls have been begging for a sister slumber party- a couple of these spa treatments would definitely take it up a notch or two! 🙂

    1. I can’t wait to try #9 either, and it’s super kid-friendly. 🙂 A sister slumber party sounds so fun! My girls and I do Mother/Daughter Spa dates every once in awhile, and they love them.

  3. Hope this isn’t a silly question but since these are all natural materials these would be safe for my daughters spa birthday party of 10 year olds right?

  4. Wow, I can’t wait to try some of these treatments (if not all!!). I’ve been looking for some relaxing natural treatments and it looks like i’ve found them, thank you very much!

  5. I’ve been trying to find some ideas for a great gift for my wife’s birthday. I think I will try some of these ideas! She has been talking a lot lately how she could use a good facial cream. Thanks for the awesome ideas, I think she’ll really like it!

    1. What a great husband you are!! Hope she LOVES it! {If you really want to get brownie points with her, you should try planning our spa date idea to go with the new facial cream and pamper her.} 😉

  6. Hi! I’m making about half of these for my mom, but I planned on sending her the finished products since she lives seven states away, do these recipes need to be refrigerated? And if so, do you think it’ll survive four-five days without refrigeration due to shipping?

    1. Hi Autumn! What a great gift idea! Since the recipes were found on other blogs, it would probably be best to ask the original blogger about the recipe. Hopefully it won’t be a problem! Good luck! Xo.
