It's time to get creative on how to provide the care and nurturing she deserves. Spa services are ALWAYS a great idea, but if she's wanting something different, we've got you covered.

Mother's Day will be here before you know it, of course Mom probably needs some spa time so we've curated some ideas and suggestions on how you can create an in-home spa inspired atmosphere for Mom this Mother's Day.

When creating a spa wellness routine for Mom this Mother's day think of 5 things that will help this:

  1. Sound: Relaxing Music & Sounds

  2. Scent: Aroma

  3. Sight: Right Lighting

  4. Touch: Cozy & Comfortable Materials

  5. Taste: Water & Tea

Relaxing Music & Sounds

Playing soft music while doing yoga, meditation or just taking a moment for wellness will be more than appreciated for Mom and is a great idea to creating the relaxing mood.

Create a playlist for Mom that she can use on these days:

Flute Music:


Incorporate candles or essential oils for MOM that brings her joy. Scents interact with the brain on a very intimate level. Not sure where to begin? Try citrus and floral scents like lavender are always a good start.


There are many different wavelengths of light, and they all trigger our brains differently. For example, blue-enriched lighting is bright and can promote productivity and alertness, whereas warmer lighting encourages rest and relaxation, helping us to sleep better. The goal is find a balance between the two.


When you think about the spa and relaxation, think cozy and comfortable think soft blankets, pillows, and textures around the room.


Of course, we wouldn't leave taste out of our perfect oasis of our perfect oasis equation!

Staying hydrated is essential to wellness. To enhance your beverage, try adding lemon to your water for an extra hit of vitamin C or keep antioxidant0rich tea on hand! For that exra reminder to hydrate, keep a water dispenser and an electric tea kettle in your room!
