Create a Spa Room
Making your own sanctuary when we are sequestered at home can be a challenge- work spaces are now part of our dining rooms and classrooms are now also part of the mix. Having a refuge during this “storm” whether it be a quiet corner of a bedroom or a luxurious bathroom becomes essential. Taking time for self-care has never been so important. Miele has made it easier by sharing our favorite recipes for relaxation- spa towels, herbal packs, and other homemade spa remedies. Light a candle (or two), play something on your favorite streaming service or download sounds of nature and RELAX!
