    I like Epsom salts and green tea!  I use bulk green tea bags so the leaves don't get clogged in the drain...

    Try my facial mask, scrubs and tips on having a at-home spa day.

    An at-home spa makes a great present. You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on spa treatments or waste gas driving to a spa that fits your personal needs. You have everything you need for a spa right at home. If you don’t already have a facial scrub, mask(s), and a foot bath then you can simply make accommodations. You discover you do not have a relaxing facial scrub or mask. Do not fret; gather some supplies that you have around the house, dry milk, oatmeal, and water. I use this homemade scrub and mask once or three times a week. It’s soothing, moisturizes, brightens, and clears discolorations.

    I mix the ingredients according to my preference of texture and consistency, no cooking needed. Once mixed, you will apply the mask to a clean and dry face, if you like you can use this in two ways a mask or a light scrub. If you are using it as a scrub simply, apply in a circular motion then rinse. If you plan to use it as a mask, you can omit the oatmeal if you prefer and make a mixture of dry milk and water to make a paste like consistency, apply to face as any other mask, allow to dry (drying time may vary), rinse, pat dry and apply usual moisturizer.....

    I use candles, lighting and music to set the ambiance for a soothing bath.  I have fluffy, big bath towels warmed for use.  Also, a jacuzzi tub for soaking with rose petals sprinkled in the water.  What more could you ask for? (PS.. this is my dream spa)

    Hi AliciaC

    All the responses are very helpful but I am inclined to think that a spa needs some form of water jet(s) to work on those sore muscles.
    I read reviews on the internet from people who had used a 12 volt portable pump in the bath which is held in place by suctions.

    There were two problems with these types of pumps.
    1.The pressure is very low primarily due to the small capacity of the pump.
    2.The suctions keep loosing suction.

    I then checked out other types of pumps and what appealed to me was a submersible pump used mainly for fountains.
    I bought a Sunsun JP-068 submersible pump ( for $33 plus postage from ebay ) which is small (2.0kg ) and yet powerful ( 240 volts,75 watts, 3100L/H ) enough to give me all the power that I demand from a spa yet.
    I have now already used this pump over the last two weekends and feel very satisfied with my purchase.
    In addition, this pump has an adjustment for the pressure flow but I have to set it to maximum for what I want.
    If I had to buy another pump I would this time purchase the JP-069 model which is slightly more powerful.
