The Holidays Are Over - It's Time To Spoil Yourself

For many of us, the holidays are a whirlwind of activity. From hosting parties, to cooking lavish meals, to taking down and storing decorations, there's hardly time to relax during this busy time of year. So, by the time January rolls around, we're tired and yearning for an opportunity to rejuvenate ourselves.

If you've been dreaming of luxuriating at a world-class spa, but find that's just a little outside your budget right after the holidays, don't give up hope.

It's possible to experience the triple treats of aromatherapy, moisture-rich skin softening and muscle relaxation at home for a fraction of the cost of that spa visit.

Today there are affordable — and yet extraordinary — soaps and lotions that can carry you and your imagination to a land of worry-free, no-stress pampering. And, you don't even have to leave your home.

The recipe for a heavenly spa experience is easy. Take one bath bomb — a hard-packed mixture of ingredients that fizz and bubble as they release their essential oils and lovely scents into the surrounding water and air. Add it to a tub of warm bathwater and surrender to the cozy water and soothing fragrances drifting around you. For 30 minutes, relax as the tension leaves your muscles and you let your mind ease.

Prefer a shower over a bath? You can still capture those feelings of rejuvenation and refreshment with a shower bomb. This little sister to the bath bomb delivers lavish, long-lasting aromatherapy benefits. Place it in the bottom of the shower near your feet and organic essential oils and lavish scents ride up on the steam from your shower, creating a unique at-home spa experience.

You can find bath and shower bombs, along with a wide array of soaps, bubble bars, shower gels, shampoos and lotions at Splash, located in the New England Fishing Village East at Broadway at the Beach.

Splash products are uniquely designed to help you create a relaxing atmosphere of all natural spa treatments right in your home. Made from fresh, organic fruit and vegetables, Splash products have no parabens, alcohol, mineral oils or phthalates. At Splash, you'll discover a wide variety of chemical-free soaps crafted in beautiful designs, as well as an exclusive fragrance line of products and specialty items in bath and shower bombs, soy lotion candles, solid moisturizers and more.

The holidays are finally over and a new year lies ahead. Why not resolve to spoil yourself just a little in 2016? Begin a new routine of relaxation, pampering and refreshing yourself today and all year long.

​Light Up Your Holidays With Scented Candles

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts, Shopping

Can you imagine the holidays without candles? Not many Americans can.

The ambiance created by candles makes a home warm and welcoming for holiday guests. Candles also promote a feeling of relaxation during the stressful holiday season. Seven out of 10 households use candles as a focal point for their home décor, says The National Candle Association, and candles inspire aromatherapy-like relaxation and stress reduction.

Fragrance is the number one reason most people choose a particular candle. At the Yankee Candle® Store at Broadway at the Beach, you can see, hold, and smell true-to-life fragrances and select the one just right for you.

Fragrances like “Winter Glow” and “Balsam & Cedar” stir thoughts of a walk through tall pines on a crisp winter day. Scents like “Cozy By The Fire,” “Holiday Homecoming” and “Celebrate Christmas” bring back warm memories of family gathered round to celebrate. You can even fill you home with the smells of fresh-baked treats with candles like “Gingerbread,” “Christmas Cookies,” and “Cinnamon Vanilla.”

For those who prefer to enjoy the fragrance without the flame, Yankee Candle has nontraditional options such as the Elsa Scenterpiece™ electric warmer which melts the scented candle wax, filling a room with fragrance. Why not give yourself a real treat, and choose a Scenterpiece that is outfitted with an automatic shutoff and adjustable timer. Set it when you leave the house and return to a home filled with your favorite scents.

And since it's the gift-giving season, you'll want to check out the available gift baskets, lanterns and other special gifts at Yankee Candle that can light up the holiday season for family and friends.

Whether you prefer tapers, votives, pillars or jar candles for your most important moments, a candle is an indispensable element when setting a festive mood or nourishing a sense of relaxation, fun and luxury.

What scent, color or shape, will be your seasonal essential?
