Are you a mom in need of a day of pampering? Read our tips on How to Create a Spa Day at Home for Busy Moms.
I’m a mom of two girls (14 and 11) and one boy (6). This Mother’s Day, I want something simple! I see it as an opportunity to take a day of rest and pampering.
If my family were to ask me what I’d like for Mother’s Day, I’d be quick to answer that I’d want a day of rest and relaxation as well as a chance to pamper myself, at home – alone.
I spend a lot of time with my kids on a regular basis, but I do need a break often to recharge.

Spa Day At Home for Busy Moms
Turn off distractions.
Turn your phone to silent to avoid receiving any phone calls, texts, notifications, or distractions during your spa day at home.
Leave your phone in another room and try not to even have it near you if possible. The last thing you want is to receive a notification that causes anxiety during your time of relaxation!
Set the mood of the room.
Light a few candles around the room in a safe location. If you don’t want to deal with flames on candles, I recommend using flameless candles.
Turn the light settings on low if possible to provide the perfect relaxing atmosphere for your spa day. Turn on relaxing music to listen to.
Invest in a nice robe for your spa day.
Have a pitcher of water available.
If you’ve ever visited a spa, you may recognize that most spas have a pitcher of water nearby.
Many times, the water is infused with fruits or other flavors that make spa day even more refreshing!
Pull Back Your Hair
If you are planning to do your own facial at home, pull back your hair with a hair tie or hair towel wrap to keep your hair from getting on your face or sticking to your face mask!
Give yourself a facial.
Give yourself a manicure and pedicure.
Save money on a salon style manicure and pedicure and do your own at home!
Consider a foot spa bath for extra pampering!
Enjoy a relaxing bubble bath.
Enjoy a warm lavender bubble bath to relax during your spa day at home. Soak in the tub and feel the stress melt away!
I personally enjoy Dr. Teal’s Foaming Bath with Pure Epsom Salt!
Make homemade bath bombs or soap.
Do-it-yourself bath bombs and soaps are a fun addition to an at home spa day for busy moms! Check out how to make bath bombs and soap below:
Add a favorite book with coffee or tea.
Consider an Audible membership so that you can listen to your favorite books while relaxing!

Don’t forget to pamper yourself with gourmet chocolates! Chocolate candy is a great way to end a day of pampering.
