Any spa party ideas?

Asked by princessa (113points) March 30th, 2010

For my b-day party I decided I wanted a spa day. Any ideas? Like snacks or treatments or games or anything you have in mind. It would be even better if you could put a list of things we could do! And I would appreciate in order (like first thing to last thing) but I’m not picky! Thanks.

I love homemade spa products, and they’re so much fun to make! It’s just an added plus that they are so good for your skin!

Do remember when using these products that natural doesn’t always mean incapable of doing harm. An almond paste is not the product you want to put on your nut-allergic friend’s face. Use common sense.

Oat and Honey scrub (for oily skin)
– Beat a tablespoon of uncooked oatmeal to a coarse powder with a mortar and pestle, or grind in a coffee grinder or (dry) blender
– Mix with enough honey to make a good paste.
– Gently scrub into face using wet fingertips, and rinse well with clear water.

Strawberries and Cream Facial Peel (not for sensitive skin)
– Mix ¼ cup of milk with 1–2 chopped strawberries in a blender.
– Apply to face with cotton balls.
– Leave on for no more than five minutes.
– Rinse with clear water

Mango Scrub (very moisturizing!)
– Peel mango.
– Eat mango.
– Rub mango peel on skin.
– Wait five minutes
– Rinse.

I have tons of ‘em. ^_^

How old are you and what’s your budget?

You could offer homemade bath oils and Thai Massages! ;) Get a few different oils, essential oil scents, decorator bottles and let people make their own concoctions.

That’s an awesome idea!

Set out a few different carrier oils (coconut, almond, and of course olive are all easy to come by), and as many essential oils as you can afford, and have a go at it! Just make sure to keep the dilutions weak enough for direct skin contact, especially when dealing with potent oils like peppermint and lemon.

@Seek_Kolinahr I blend mine down with mineral oil and reduces the overall cost of the almond and hazelnut oils I like to mix it with.

@Seek_Kolinahr Great recipes! But do be careful with the Mango Scrub. Some people can be very allergic to mangoes!!!

Ooh… that’s a brilliant idea! Hazelnut oil is just scrumptious.

Very true, @davidbetterman
Thus the warning in italics. ^_^

Ack! @Cruiser I must advise against mineral oil. It’s not particularly good for the skin. But, if you’ve tried it and like it, then play on, MacDuff.

You can make a body scrub. Use sugar or salt (fine for face or coarse for foot) and extra virgin olive oil or whatever nut/veggie oil you like. Add a little oil at a time to make a pasty consistency. You can add essential oils or herbs like lavender or rosemary for aroma. Just be careful nobody is allergic to any ingredients!
