Soothing At-home Spa Treatments

By Nancy Kalish for Completely You

Forget about expensive spas. The ingredients for some of the top relaxing and rejuvenating treatments are right in your kitchen cabinet or available for pennies at the store. Just mix them up and enjoy. Here are four of my all-time favorites.

1. Hot Chocolate Hot Stone Foot Bath
Perfect for: Smoothing and soothing sore feet
How to:
Place some smooth, small clean stones from your yard (or marbles) in a basin; fill with hot water. Add 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons buttermilk powder, 2 tablespoons baking soda, and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and mix well. Put your feet in and roll them over the warm stones, concentrating on any achy spots, then soak until the water cools. This is a great start to a pedicure.

2. Brown Sugar Lip Scrub
Perfect for: Boosting your smile power with gentle exfoliation
How to:
Mix 2 heaping tablespoons solid coconut oil (if its liquid, refrigerate for a few minutes) with 2 tablespoons honey until smooth. Add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and mix again. Rub about 1 tablespoon of the mixture in circular motions on lips and try not to gobble it up -- at least until youre done. The remaining scrub will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.

3. Honey-almond Hand Scrub
Perfect for: Softening and relaxing overworked hands
How to:
In a small bowl, mix 1 teaspoon almond oil, the juice of 1/2 lemon and 2 teaspoons honey. Massage into hands, and wrap them with a clean towel. After 15 minutes, wash with warm water. This is a great treatment after a day of gardening.

4. Spiced Sore Muscle Massage Oil
Perfect for: Alleviating aches and inducing pure bliss
How to:
Mix 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, and a pinch each cayenne pepper and hot mustard powder in a small dish; set aside for 15 minutes. Massage into sore muscles (or better yet, have someone else do the massaging!), avoiding any broken skin.
