Treat Yourself: Spa Day with Maple Holistics

Every now and then we need to take the time to relax and get our mind away from the daily stressors. I was more than willing to work with Maple Holistics in this blog post and try out their Eucalyptus bubble bath product! I've done a spa night post before that was a little different and featured a milk and flower petal bath that you can read here. I just think it's so important to spend some time with yourself, get a nice drink (wine, tea, whatever your preference), listen to some music and relax!

I know using soaps and bubble bath gel with amazing scents are fun to use. But the nice thing about Maple Holistics is that they are an all natural brand that doesn't use sulfates and are made in the US. When you're sitting in a bath and having a product soak into your body, you want it to be safe and healthy for you too! Eucalyptus is good for relieving muscle pain, breathing, mental exhaustion & sickness, skin and many other ailments. I felt so refreshed by the end of my bath!

Music honestly makes the whole experience that much better. It helps your mind concentrate on solely the sounds and how you feel in the moment. If you've never heard of Deuter, throw that station on next time you want to wind down and you'll get the best spa/nature soundscapes you can ask for. Side note, in case you were wondering about the costume change I got extremely hot in the first robe while taking pictures and had to switch to a lighter one 😅

SO of you aren't feeling like dressing up and going out, maybe a nice "treat yoself" night would be a good substitute! Make sure to check out the Maple Holistics website to try a free product & get your spa night started here 🛀🏽

Treat Yourself: Flower Petal Milk Bath

We all have our own stressors. There are so many things personally in my everyday life that overwhelm me so much, I strive for that moment at the end of the day where I can plop into bed and get a good nights rest. Of course it isn't always like this, but in the heat of the semester with a million things going on, a girl needs a night off! The other night I realized I had the place to myself and took advantage of the time I had. I did a little research on making a perfectly relaxing milk bath and I enjoyed it so much I had to share with everyone! This makes for a perfect evening for yourself, or an awesome surprise for your significant other (fellas). It's super easy, quick and doesn't hurt your wallet! 

Here's all that you need to do: 

  • Fill the tub with hot water (obviously)
  • Dust in a healthy amount of powdered milk. I used all natural goat's milk, but whatever you prefer!
  • Mix and let dissolve
  • Add a couple drops of food coloring. I actually used a tiny bit of red to make a light pinkish/purple color.
  • Adding crushed oatmeal is an option if you would like to have even more moisturized skin.
  • Cut the stems off of the flower arrangement of your choice and set into the water. Try not to pick too heavy of flowers or else they will sink. Fyi rose petals also are beneficial to moisturizing the skin, but not a necessity. Be as creative as you would like! 
  • Make a bomb playlist containing the most relaxing music of your choice.
  • Light some candles to enhance your aesthetics!
  • A nice bottle of wine or maybe a cup of tea at your side is always a nice addition.

Don't plan on going out after your night of relaxation! The second I got out of the tub I felt so relaxed and tired! My skin was smooth and rejuvenated, and I had a really great night of sleep. Sitting down and completely clearing your mind and listening to your favorite music will keep you sane through your issues. I'm definitely going to be searching for more spa night DIY's! Because sometimes, we just need a full night to no one but ourselves. We deserve it! Until next time (;
