Celebrate Galentine's Day with a Goddess at-home Spa Night

What is Galantine's Day

Galentine's Day is a relatively new holiday that has quickly gained popularity as a celebration of female friendship and empowerment. Its origin can be traced back to the American television show "Parks and Recreation." In the episode titled "Galentine's Day," the show's protagonist, Leslie Knope, throws an annual party for her female friends the day before Valentine's Day. Leslie describes it as "the best day of the year," a day to celebrate the women in her life without the pressures and expectations often associated with Valentine's Day.

The concept resonated with viewers and rapidly transcended the confines of the show, evolving into a real-world celebration. Celebrated on February 13th, the eve of Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day shines a spotlight on the beauty of platonic love among women, non-binary folks, and truly, friends of all genders. It is a day dedicated to cherishing the bonds of sisterhood and friendship in every form.

Unlike Valentine’s Day, which often centers on romantic love, Galentine’s Day is all about honoring the love you have for your friends. It’s a day to celebrate those important platonic relationships in your life in any way that brings you joy. Whether it’s hosting a cozy brunch, a lavish dinner, enjoying a wine and cheese night, throwing a memorable party, exchanging thoughtful gifts, or indulging in a relaxing spa day—the possibilities are endless.

Kickstart the pampering session with DIY face masks and scrubs using simple kitchen ingredients. Avocado, honey, and yogurt can combine to create a nourishing mask, while a mixture of coffee grounds and coconut oil can exfoliate and invigorate the skin. For a deep cleanse and gentle exfoliation, our Gentle exfoliating Rice bran Cleanser/ Masque combines finely ground Rice Bran powder and Rice Husks with antioxidant properties of Ginger. Combine it with honey for a clarifying mask that leaves skin glowing.

After the face is cleansed and toned, massage the face with a nourishing oil serum. Open the acupressure points around the face using your forefinger.

Take it in turns to apply the tool technique on each other.

Manicure and Pedicure Station:

Unleash your creativity with a DIY manicure and pedicure station. Lay out an assortment of nail polishes, nail files, and cuticle oils.

Encourage conversation while nails dry, and let everyone experiment with fabulous nail art and stickers.
