Great Storage(1 of 5)

A spa bathroom lets you pamper yourself with little indulgences for a fraction of what you'd spend at the spa. To create your own spa bathroom, just think "relaxing" with calming candlelight, soothing scents and big, fluffy towels. Then add a few personal touches to create your own retreat in the middle of a bustling household.

Decorating Scents

The spa experience always starts with the aroma when you walk through the doors, the calming scents help you transition from traffic-mode to tranquil. Get the same effect in your own home with personal aromatherapy blends. Add aromatic essential oils to drugstore Epsom salts for a professional mineral bath that is a treat for the senses. To refresh and revitalize, try scents like tea tree and eucalyptus. Ylang ylang and neroli are perfect before bedtime. For a relaxing mini-facial for puffy eyes, use Victorian Trading Company's Eyes Tea, filled with fennel, chamomile and rose petals.
