Are you feelin?
That there's a race & u forgot to enter? That things seem in order for others & for u it's a chaotic mess?
Of course this time of year just adds to our stress!

That's me the last few weeks! With working at my job as a Private Duty HHA, Private Clients for my Esthetician bizz, building up pieces for my Etsy Shoppe & furbaby mom duties & wife I'm a bit frasizzled farazilled & overall frazzled!

Are you in need of a mental getaway & soul massage mixed w bit of cat like stretching?

Maybe? Possibly? Heck ya!!!

Solution?

DIY "emergency" ocean inspired spa therapy!

I've been a Licensed Esthetician for over 8 years now & tried a few diff "emergency" personal spa treatments! I like easy & natural, quick!

What u need for DIY "Emergency" Ocean inspired Spa therapy:




Bag of Sea Kelp (dried)
Epsom Salt
Sea Salt
Ocean Inspired Music, App
Coconut oil
Tea Tree

That's it!!!!!!

Mix 1 cup sea salt (fine or course ur call) w 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil in glass jar w lid.

In glass spritzer bottle mix 4-5 drops per 8 ounces of tea tree in good ( I use distilled) water.

Draw a hot bath & put 2-3 cups of Epsom salt in tub. Add 5-6 pieces of dried sea kelp (u can put them in a Muslim cotton bag) I usually just put them in tub since they're big pieces.

Turn on some ocean inspired music, I use my iPhone and Sleepmaker Waves App. It has different settings & watery sounds! I luv it!

Large glass of water ( I drink distilled)

Optional: Candle, I have Oceany smelling candles but I don't use them for this.

Turn lights down & close the "Spa" door. This is your time!

As you get in say to yourself I release all my worry's and troubles...

Put few large pieces of seaweed on your face & over your eyes.

Wet hair in tub & 1/2 to small cup full of coconut oil massage in your scalp & hair.

Lay back relax for bit.
I usually do 15-20 minutes..

When your ready:
Take seaweed off your face, you will feel a slimy gel on your face! That's good!!

Now:
Grab your sea salt/coconut oil scrub when your ready & massage face, hands & feet w it.
Elbows too!

Rinse (turn water back on rinse ur face & hair w cool water) may need cup for this.

Drain tub & Thank ur higher power for healing that's taken place!

Have big fluffy towel ready & robe!

Drink ur water & spritz your face w tea tree spray! Apply a few drops of coconut oil over your face as a moisturizer..

That's it!

I follow this w some Pilates & or Yoga stretches...
