Nothing feels good like experiencing long hours of continuous fragrance in a spa. Apart from knowing you have the best oils nature has to offer, you get to enjoy a spa-like scent with a fragrance that takes you off your feet. As we all know, sitting in a spa is one of the best ways to enjoy a variety of essential oils confined in one space.
One of the drawbacks of spas is the fact that they are expensive. You also don’t get to enjoy it anytime you want it simply because you have to travel to get there. What if I tell you that you can still enjoy that spa-like scent without spending large sums of money? What if you can create a spa-like scent in your home? The truth is, bringing a spa-like scent to your home is easier than you think. What you need is an essential oil diffuser and the essential oils used in the spa.
The scent in a spa is derived from a mixture of various oils that are used in essential oil diffusers. Using a variety of oils, you can come out with a mixture that brings out the spa fragrance in your house. Among the most common oils used in spas include Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Lavender, Sandalwood, Bergamot, Chamomile, and more.

- Find a container suitable for a reed diffuser, for example, an old diffuser bottle or any other bottle. Don’t use plastic bottles.
- Get the right reeds: Use the new reed diffusers as they are effective. You can go for the ready-made reeds on the market.
- Choose one of the recipes above depending on your favorite smell. You are then required to mix them using a diffuser base oil.
- Into the bottle, pour your mixture up to two-thirds to the brim. Don’t fill to the top of the brim as it will overflow.
- Place the reeds into your mixture and let it sit for approximately one hour.
- After one hour is over, flip the reeds so that the top part can be saturated. Lastly, find a perfect spot to place your diffuser and enjoy the spa scent.
In summary, spending time in a spa is not only healthy but fun. The oils will not only improve your health but will make every moment you spend there memorable. The bad news is, that you might not be in a position to make it to your favorite spa spot any time for three main reasons that are, distance, time, and the worst part price. The good news is, that you don’t need to go to the spa to enjoy the fragrance. You can still use some of the spa scent oils in your diffuser to bring the spa scent to your home.
