Mom’s The Best!

Mom’s The Best!


Mother’s Day is this Sunday and it’s not too late to plan something special. Why not give her an unforgettable ‘home spa day.’ Even if you don’t have a hot tub, a bathtub is just fine.

The key is for Mom to enjoy a hot bath (bubbling if possible), with some spa-quality products at hand.

Depending on whether she’s in a bathtub or outside in a portable spa, you will either load up the outside of the hot tub’s water-proof housing dock with an iPod, iPhone and iPad or an appropriate android device.

If you don’t have that set up, you can connect your Mom’s favorite playlist via Bluetooth or another streaming service, or set up a portable music player near the bath.

Spa Treats for Mom

Spa Treats for Mom

Mom will appreciate a tray of spa-like treats set next to her. For example: a scented candle. 

Or how about a mud cleansing mask (overnight it from Amazon!). Although it may seem to defy logic to include mud as a cleansing mask, it is a real treat. When the mud dries, it pulls out toxins and excess oils in the skin, leaving a truly clean skin. Some spa-quality brands say mud may even help with skin elasticity — and every mom will love that.

Rose water is another treat. It has been part of a skin regimen since ancient times. Made from distilled water and rose petals, it is said to help regulate the skin’s pH level as it hydrates and rejuvenates. Be sure the rose water is made from distilled water to avoid any of the contaminants found in tap water.

Staying Hydrated:


Fruit-infused Water for Mom

Fruit-infused Water for Mom

When soaking in a hot tub, it’s important to stay hydrated. So consider adding to Mom’s tray some refreshing fruit-infused water, like raspberry or blueberry (both fruits are known antioxidants). 

They’re easy to make. Just use clear cold water studded with fresh berries, and add a few springs of mint.

Mom can also eat the berries when she feels like it, too.




Clean Towels, etc:

In setting up an unforgettable spa experience, consider including a terry cloth bathrobe and easy-on sandals.

And of course, clean towels are a must. And if you have an artistic bent, it’s worth fussing a bit and folding one of her towels into, say, a swan.

After all, Mom will feel as serene and elegant as a swan after being pampered with a home-spa getaway on Mother’s Day.

One last preparation for Mother’s Day. If she’ll be enjoying her at home spa day in a hot tub, clean water is essential to make it a great gift. So if the hot tub hasn’t been drained in a few months, this would be the time to do it:




— Choose a good spot in the yard to drain out the hot tub water.

— Turn off the power at the breaker.

— Attach a standard garden hose to the drain cap.

— After the spa is empty you can clean it down before refilling it.

— It’s also a good idea to clean the filters at this time. Not to worry, with a Bullfrog Spa, that’s easy work.


 Best Hot Tubs wishes all Moms — and those who love them — a very happy Mother’s Day,
