Step one: Nails!

  1. Run a hot bath and throw in the kiddos and soak those feet and hands.
  2. Next, grab the olive oil and rub it into your cuticles.  Let it sit for five minutes and if you want you can even use a cuticle pusher to really get into it. Olive oil is so much better for your skin and equally effective as any of those toxic cuticle creams you could buy.

(You could also treat each kid or guest with their own tub of warm water with a few drops of geranium and lavender essential oils which soften and nourish the skin. They also happen to smell amazing! If doing personal tubs of water add 5 drops each. If filling the bathtub 10-20 drops.)

Step two: Hair mask!spa day

  • Mix together two tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/4 c. mayonnaise
  • 2 eggs
  • (optional) one mashed up avocado

…and lather up those tresses!  Wrap your hair with saran wrap, a plastic bag, or if you have it, a fancy schmansy shower cap.  Let it soak in for at least twenty minutes.


Step three: Face mask!

For this step of your at diy spa day:

  • whip up 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil.

Rub this sweet mix onto your face and let it sit for at least five minutes before rinsing off with warm water.


Step three: Exfoliate!spa day

Now that your skin and hair is naturally nourished and moisturized:

make a relaxing body scrub.


  • 1/4 c. sugar in the raw with enough olive oil to make a thick paste.
  • Add in lavender, geranium, or sweet orange (or all) essential oil into the mix to relax, soften skin, and invigorate .

(Also if you don’t have sugar in the raw on hand white sugar or sea salt work as well but they have a much more coarse texture that I really only like to use on my face.  You should be scrubbing down her whole body today!)

  Then hop in the tub and rub, rub, rub.


Step four: RINSE!

Wrapping up your fun and relaxing at DIY spa day will be a real good rinse! Wash your hair as usual and be sure to condition to lock in that moisture.


Oh my goodness, how amazing do you feel now?! 

I hope your kids like this spa day if you’re attempting to involve them, and for ladies day I know your friends will love all the natural pampering you shared with them.

Don’t forget to top it off with a full-body moisturizing with your favorite lotion.  You’ve taken care of entire body so well, so healthy, and so affordable!

Love yourself, love your life, breath, relax, enjoy, and smile.
