Pamper Pad!

Turn your boring old bathroom into a heavenly home spa with our clever hacks?

Who needs a spa getaway when you can create a soothing sanctuary in your own home? It couldn’t be simpler: just make sure everything smells divine and surround yourself with calming colours and the softest, fluffiest fabrics imaginable. Then you can simply close the door on the world and hole up in your own hushed haven as long as you like?

1. Make your pamper pad heaven-scented – snap up the Organic Reed Diffuser in Lavender, Jasmine & Brazilian Rosewood, around €52,?Neom Organics.

2. Oh, why not? You can never have too many gorgeous-smelling things in your home spa. We love the Green Fig & Vetiver Wood Candle, €19.95,?Brooke & Shoals, creator Alison Banton’s own favourite fragrance.
