We all deserve a bit of self care, especially after the troublesome year that was 2020. Lockdown has left many of us feeling a bit drained, juggling working from home, keeping the children entertained and trying to keep on top of the life admin was tough. Now freedom day is behind us it’s time to take back some time for ourselves, I think we’ve all earned a pamper evening!
A spa day sounds great, but some of us aren’t ready to leave the comfort of our homes or would rather save the expense. We get this, which is why we’re going to take you through our top tips on how to feel pampered at home.
Run A Bath
Find a time when you can be alone and uninterrupted for an hour. Run yourself a lovely warm bubble bath, perhaps pour yourself your favourite drink, take a book with you and relax. Let the warm water relax your muscles, relieving the tension throughout your body and taking you towards a calmer mindset. If reading isn’t your thing, play some gentle music, allowing your mind to settle and your thoughts to pause.
Light A Candle
Lighting your favourite candle is an at-home pamper night essential. A pamper night is all about reconnecting with yourself and practicing self care, so what candle would be more appropriate for the occasion than the Scentered LOVE Home Aromatherapy Candle. This 100% natural candle will ooze notes of clove, heart-warming floral rose and jasmine, all wrapped up in the rich base of patchouli, vanilla, cedarwood and cabreuva.

Breathe In The Aromatherapy Balms
After your restful bubble bath add the Scentered LOVE Ritual Wellbeing Aromatherapy Balm to your pulse points. Once you have gently applied the balm to your neck, wrists and temples stop, inhale and reset, taking long inhalations and even longer exhalations on breath. By breathing out for longer than you breathe in your body will begin to relax and your blood pressure and stress levels should decrease.
Massage Your Skin With Body Oil
A pamper night wouldn’t be complete without a luxury body oil to nourish your skin. Create your own body oil evening ritual by massaging your chosen body oil into your skin using circular motions. This will help to stimulate and hydrate the skin, whilst also allowing the scents relax your mind and body.

Alongside this geranium oil is antibacterial and antimicrobial, meaning it will eliminate bacteria on the skin’s surface, preventing breakouts and helping to clear up blemishes - what’s not to love!
