About six months ago, I started thinking about dating again. After having a spouse pass away a few years ago, I knew that it was time for me to get back out there, date, and have a great time. However, it was a really difficult transition for me, and I knew that it would be hard to get back into the dating pool. To make the process easier, I turned to a spa and salon in my area to see what they could do for me. They did my hair, gave my skin a nice buffing, and made my nails look picture perfect.

Many people want a special day to be able to pamper themselves and treat themselves to a day where they are the ones being taken care of rather than taking care of everyone else. If you can't find the time to break away from your busy schedule, why not bring the spa to your home? Here are three types of recipes that you'll need in order to do this:
1. Spa Water
Depending on your personal preference, you can go a number of routes with your spa party's "spa water."" You may want to offer a specific type of water, or you want to offer several different types of water so that your guests can choose what relaxes them as an individual. A basic spa water usually consists of cucumbers, lemon, mint, and rosemary. Alternatively, you can just want to go with what's in season. For example, in the spring, you can want to go with a water that is infused with strawberries, mint, cucumbers, and lemon.
2. Face Mask
For DIY face masks, oatmeal has always been a very popular ingredient to use. For an oatmeal face mask, you will need to combine a 1/3 cup of oatmeal and a ½ cup of non-boiling, but hot, water. Allow this mixture to sit for a couple of minutes and then add two tablespoons of honey, two tablespoons of plain yogurt, and one egg white. Once thoroughly mixed, apply a layer – not too thick – to the face. Allow this to sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Your face will feel soft and smooth afterward. Oh, and don't forget to add cucumber slices to the eyes while the face mask is sitting.
3. Foot Soak
Many people are on their feet all day and a relaxing foot soak can be a gift sent down from heaven above. One recipe for a spa-worthy foot soak is to use 1/8 cup of dried parsley, four bags of chamomile tea, and four drops of an essential oil (your choice). This mixture needs to be steeped in one gallon of hot water for about 10 minutes prior to use. Not only does it smell great, but it will really soothe and pamper those tired tootsies. Another great foot soak involves two drops of lavender essential oil, one teaspoon of chopped thyme, two teaspoons of lemon juice, and ¼ cup of Epsom salt. This recipe will help soothe irritated skin and calm the nerves.
