At Woolroom, our mission is to ensure you have an excellent night’s sleep, and what better way to ensure this than by settling down for an evening of undisturbed relaxation?
Tempted by the idea of shutting the world out and pampering yourself? We know you want to… After all, who doesn’t? To help you get into the mood, sink into our guide on how to plan a pamper day at home.
We’ve collated our favourite spa day at home ideas so that you can spend a couple of hours treating yourself to those luxurious spa treatments at home! Who doesn’t love a facial and some scented candles? Read on and let Woolroom design your perfect pamper day at home – setting you up for a peaceful night’s slumber.
Things you need for a spa day at homeBefore we delve into our ideas for some gorgeous spa treatments at home, there are a few things you might need for your pamper session at home. If you’re worried that you’re going to have to spend a fortune to re-create that boutique hotel spa feel, then fear not! Many of the things you’ll need can be found in your existing stash, though if you want to nip out for some cheeky chocolate treats, we won’t tell.
Take a moment to consider what you want from your pampering time. Is a long bath with scented candles your idea of heaven? Or would you prefer some fun skincare treatments to try? Whatever you’re in the mood for, make sure you plan ahead: no one wants to keep interrupting their pamper day at home by constantly having to get up for a book, candle or a drink. It also might be an idea to let your family, partner, or housemates know that you wouldn’t like to be disturbed – that way you can really sink into the experience. Or, you could turn it into a cosy pamper party for everyone, though we won’t blame you for not wanting to sharing those chocolates!
Banish those family bathroom vibes and grab a couple of items from our at-home spa day checklist to create a fully immersive experience for your senses. You deserve nothing but luxury and opulence for your evening. To prepare for your pamper session at home, here are some things you need for a spa day at home.

Spa treatments at homeNow for the fun bit! Using everything on your at-home spa day checklist, you can start to stage the evening. For your pamper day at home, you need to create a relaxing and tranquil atmosphere by dimming the lights, putting on your favourite music and lighting a candle. We’re talking the full spa experience. At Woolroom, we love luxury, that’s why we’ve collated our favourite spa treatments at home for you to try out below.
The long, hot soakWe think the perfect start to your pamper day at home is to run a bath. The benefits of having a bubble bath are endless. Not only is it one of the best ways to unwind and destress before bed, but it is also the perfect solution for sore and tired muscles. Soak away everyday life stressors by submerging yourself in clouds of beautifully smelling bubbles.
To increase the luxury, add a bath bomb, bath salts, or bath oil to make your skin feel ever so soft before jumping into bed. Choose from an array of types, textures, and scents – from lavender to help reduce anxiety to peppermint to revitalise – to include in your bath. Another one of our home pamper ideas is to add some treatments to your bath time.
A dry brush before bathing provides full-body exfoliation, as well as increasing blood flow and stimulating collagen production, which will help to strengthen the skin. Add your favourite body scrub to improve texture and then finish with your favourite moisturiser for subtle soft skin.
Indulge in skincareAnother one of our spa day at home ideas is to indulge yourself in a skincare routine. Maybe you fancy creating your own DIY face mask? Our favourite is a matcha mask which strengthens the capillary walls and increases circulation, giving your skin a smooth, pillowy softness. To create it, mix one and a half teaspoons of water, one tablespoon of matcha or green tea, one and a half teaspoons of honey and one tablespoon of olive oil. Apply to your face for ten minutes, then rinse off and enjoy the results. But why should your face have all the fun? Why not apply a hair mask too? Apply hair oil or a mask to leave your hair feeling rejuvenated and shiny, plus it’ll smell divine.
Drift off with a massageNo pamper session at home will be complete without a massage. Your hands work so hard during the week with all the handwashing, chores, typing and texting, so they deserve to have some luxury too. Try a one-minute hand massage with your favourite hand or body cream. Shea butter is great for soothing and repairing overnight. Work the cream into your fingers and palms, massaging in circles with your thumb to reap the benefits of improved circulation and reducing muscle tension. Then why not finish with a manicure to make your fingernails really pop?
The finishing touches to a pamper day at homeAfter you’ve completed your pamper day at home, then wrap up warm in your fluffy pyjamas and slippers. Then slide into your own slice of heaven with a wool duvet and a wool pillow to easily drift off to sleep.
