Have a Sweet Spa Day with Manuka Honey

It’s easy to have your own pampering spa day

As moms, it is very easy to get burned out quickly. We tend to focus on everything at the expense of ourselves, but it is important to take a break and do something for ourselves, even if we can’t go anywhere. It’s easy to put together a couple of hours worth of a DIY Spa Day with products you can find at home and a few nourishing touches from Pacific Resources International (PRI). Manuka Honey is special in that it is uniquely antibacterial from other types of honey. It is also heat resistant so that it’s properties do not change when exposed to the heat of our bodies. This makes it especially potent and healing. There are many benefits to not only ingesting Manuka Honey but using it on our skin and hair too.

Spa Day

Clean and Scrub

Spa Day

Start off your spa day by washing up. Use PRI’s Manuka Honey and Sea Salt bar of soap to cleanse and nourish your skin. It’s a fairly soft bar with very little foaming. It is perfect for washing my hand and even my face. My skin feels so smooth afterward. There’s no after effects of feeling filmy or dry. You can use it for your whole body.

Spa Day

Don’t forget to take care of your teeth as well. This all natural toothpaste may take some getting used to as it doesn’t foam up, but it certainly gets your teeth clean. The natural antibacterial properties of the propolis and tea tree oil kill off all the nasty germs and leave my mouth feeling fresh. I was hesitant as the flavor is described as a mild licorice flavor, and I DO NOT like licorice. It’s actually very pleasant though! Kinds of sweet and minty, and I can detect a hint of that licorice but it’s not overwhelming.

Exfoliate

Spa Day

No spa day is complete without proper exfoliation. All you really need is pure Manuka Honey, sea salt fine flakes, and a little water and your favorite skin-friendly essential oils. My skin is very prone to breakouts, so a Manuka Honey scrub is perfect. The antibacterial properties can help clear my skin while the fine flakes of sea salt gently exfoliate my skin. Add in any benefits from the essential oils you add and this scrub is perfect. A little water may be needed to better mix it up, but you don’t want to use too much.

Mask It

Spa Day

It’s easy to whip up your very own facial mask. Add a scoop of Bentonite Clay, a pinch of activated charcoal, a good dollop of Manuka Honey and a sprinkle of sea salt. Feel free to once again add your favorite skin-safe essential oils, and add tiny bits of water until it’s at the proper consistency. I like my masks a little on the thicker side, but you can make yours a bit thinner in your want. Feel free to use any leftover scrub and simply add in the clay and charcoal. These are inexpensive ingredients and a little bit goes a long way. This particular blend is kind of the best of all worlds. It’s clarifying with the charcoal, clay, and honey, plus moisturizing with the honey and oils, and finally nourishing with the honey and salt.

Spa Day

This is your time to pamper yourself, so kick back and relax. Before applying the mask, warm a washcloth in hot water and lay it over your face for 5 minutes. This will help open up the pores. I then put on the clay mask and found that I had a cucumber leftover from a salad; perfect for refreshing the eyes. Put a towel down on your bed and relax for 15-30 minutes while your mask goes to work. Then simply wash it away with warm water. I waited to take my shower and wash my hair until this was all done. Then I brought my scrub into the shower with me for a full body scrub. It would also be very easy to make a hair mask with the nourishing Manuka Honey and other ingredients you can find in your fridge. Then you’ll have a nice hair treatment to add to your session as well.

Moisturize

Spa Day

Be sure once everything is washed away that you don’t forget to moisturize. This will help seal in all the benefits of your pampering session and ensure your skin is properly supple. It’s amazing how just taking an hour or two to pamper yourself really refreshes you. The kids had fun watching or even “playing” along or otherwise left me alone to rest. It was very nice. Pacific Resources International certainly has the highest quality Manuka Honey products I’ve tried and they made for an amazing spa day.
