After a long busy day, there’s nothing I would like more than to relax and freshen myself up. A wonderfully self-indulgent way I like to start my end-of-day routine is with a bath.

Thanks to DOVE® Chocolate “Unwind with Dove” campaign, I was inspired to create this DIY spa kit. With my hectic schedule these days, a long warm bath sounds like a luxury; but I still find time to do it because I deserve it. I work hard all day so why not treat myself.

This spa kit is super simple to put together and makes a great gift idea too! If it hasn’t dawned on you yet, May is a couple days away, and that means we usually start thinking about Mother’s Day gifts. This day is an important one for Moms to relax since they are the ultimate multi-taskers.

With my homemade spa kit, you’ll unwind and relax with ease or have the perfect gift for anyone who would love a little pampering.

Materials needed:

-Various spa products

– Oval wooden basket

– Crinkle cut paper shreds

– DOVE® Promises® chocolate

I found this basket and I knew it would be perfect for the spa kit. Honestly, any container would work, if you get your creative juices flowing. After finding the perfect basket, I filled the bottom with loads of paper shreds to make a nice foundation for the products.

Here are some of the things I like to add when I’m creating a spa kit: a few bath bombs, homemade bath soak, homemade sugar scrub with small scoop, scented candle, some patterned towels, a bath sponge and a few pieces of chocolate.

diy bath soak

I like this bath soak a lot because it’s gentle on the skin and not super bubbly.

materials

  • 1 cup of liquid castle soap
  • 2 tbsp. of vegetable glycerin
  • 4 tsp. of white sugar
  • 15 drops of essential oil (I used lavender oil)
  • 8 oz. container

instructions

Step 1. Combine everything in a small bowl and mix well.

Step 2. Transfer liquid to your container with lid.

Step 3. Let it sit for 24 hours before using.

Step 4. When ready to use, pour under running bathwater.

Note: You should keep it for 2 – 3 months in a dark, cool place.

diy sugar scrub

This sugar scrub gently exfoliate dead skin cells leaving skin soft and smooth.

materials

  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil (Can use olive oil instead)
  • 5 drops of essential oil ( I used lavender oil)
  • 4 oz jar

instructions

Step 1. Combine everything in a small bowl and mix well.

Step 2. Transfer to your jar.

Note: You can make adjustments to any ratio depending on your skin texture or fragrance preferences. So if you have tougher skin, use coarse sugar and for sensitive skin use granulated sugar.

After making the bath products, I used a label maker to label them.

One of the most important elements to a good bath is having the proper snacks on hand. I like a snack that I can nibble slowly as I soak my cares away. I think of things that take a bit of chewing like small candies or maybe a few pieces of fine chocolate that would melt in my mouth one bite at a time like DOVE® Promises® chocolate. All I need is 2 or 3 pieces and I’m happy. Each piece of chocolate, has a message featured on the inside of DOVE® Promises® chocolate wrapper to help you relax and unwind. I love this idea as I think it’s nice to read some soothing words as I unwind and de-stress.

  1. What a wonderful gift idea for any hard working woman! I know I could use a hot bath with a relaxing soak and a few pieces of chocolate.

  2. I have never made a spa kit for someone, but I love the idea. Especially since I love making my own beauty products (i.e. body oil or scrub) from time to time!
