Skin Care for Vacation by Jackie
July and August are busy vacation times and whether you’re taking a weekend road trip or a flight to an exotic location you want to pack light and keep it simple when it comes to skin care. No need to bring your whole vanity with you- just a few key products can keep your skin in shape with little effort!
I always recommend bringing a hydrosol when you travel. Hydrosols are distilled floral waters (think rose water) that hydrate the skin and contain different healing properties. All the toners we use are hydrosols, including our all around favorite- Hylunia’s Colloidal Silver Mist. This is a lavender flower water infused with colloidal silver to provide antiseptic properties to the skin while hydrating it and balancing natural oil production. Use on a cotton pad as a toner or mist over the skin before applying moisturizer or oil. Most can be used over makeup as a setting spray and on the skin to help refresh and soothe sunburn.
A great quality oil is a wonderful multi-use item to bring. Use oil as a cleanser by massaging a few drops on *dry* skin before wiping off with a warm, damp washcloth. Oil doubles as a great makeup remover as well, for even the most stubborn waterproof mascara.
Oil acts as a natural defensive barrier against outside aggressors and moisture loss. Use a few drops of oil on your face to soften and protect your skin after using a hydrosol. This helps lock in the moisture from the floral water to prevent dehydration. The same oil can be used on the body to nourish the skin after too much sun and as a substitute for shaving cream.
There are so many options for oils depending on your skin type but I mostly recommend Jojoba oil as it’s chemical structure is most like that of our natural sebum. When choosing your oil be sure it’s 100% pure and cold pressed if possible to ensure high quality. Avoid using any blends with “fillers” like mineral oil that can clog your skin.
If you are looking for convenience when you travel we carry 4 great Travel Kits from Hylunia; each contains a TSA-size approved cleanser, toner, serum, & moisturizer. Our popular Colloidal Silver spray is now available as a mini size, perfect to keep in your carry on!
Wishing you all safe travels and a natural glow! ✨ Jackie

What Others Are Saying:
"I had a great hot stone massage with Sarah yesterday at Bronxville Wellness Sanctuary. I am new to the area and was looking for somewhere to get a massage and based on the great reviews, decided to give Bronxville Wellness Sanctuary a try. So glad I did! It was a relaxing and soothing massage that eased tension in my back and shoulders, which was exactly what I was looking for. I felt great afterwards. I’ll be back for sure!" -Elizabeth E. on 3/27/2018
"Jackie provided a very nice facial treatment. She was very professional. The receptionist who took care of me when I entered and left was also pleasant and helpful. Always a nice experience at the Sanctuary." -Dawn C. on 3/29/2018

We've heard it said we teach/offer/share what we most need to learn.
It's no coincidence that here at the Sanctuary
Our Purpose is to guide and support one another further along on their personal journey.
Our Mission is to provide the space for all beings to thrive.
Why? Because all of us on Team BWS need it too. By serving others, we help ourselves in the process. Magical blessing.
The services, workshops, writing, recipes...opportunities we offer are to help you nourish - and in the process connect with- body mind spirit.
Body offerings include: massage, facials, energy healing and the occasional yummy recipe from Steph's kitchen like this protein smoothie here.

Spirit offerings include all of the above...plus events like the Love Meditation happening next week.
What will you choose? Whatever you decide, choose YOU.
We don't know about you, for us when January hits it feels like winter is here, inside and outside... Some of us get very sensitive to the darker cooler days and it affects our mood.
What to do? Come get some Sanctuary!
Indulge your senses with a Hot Stone Massage or a yummy Facial.
Re-charge your energy with a Reiki session. If you enjoy aromatherapy, ask and we will gladly give you a dose of lavender or eucalyptus.
And if you time it right, we may still be serving up those chocolate peanut energy bars from Stephanie's kitchen.

Recharge You by Stephanie
As the year winds down I have been reflecting on what it means to recharge. I realize it means being able to slow down long enough to pay attention and listen to what our bodies need. In other words, making self care a priority.
Let's face it- we are so busy!! As a result, we put ourselves last on the priority list often neglecting even the most basic of needs. Sleep is a big one.
When we practice self care, we commit to re-arranging that priority list with our needs at the top. We learn how to be compassionate with our self. We also learn that when we make time for what makes us feel good- more sleep, less drama, more fun, a yummy facial and massage - we are happier and actually have so much more to "give".
We support you!
We have a variety of specialists and people who offer a wonderful perspective on topics that relate to our services and clients' needs.
