Advice From The Aisles: Summertime Scent Savers

To the trained wellness eye, there are several initial signs of an S.I.D. (Stinker in Distress). The furrowing of the brow, the frantic swiveling of hands, and many minutes spent standing in front of the impossible cliff of natural deodorants. Never fear though, help is always on its way. While it’s impossible even for our knowledgeable staff to personally try every single one of the deodorants we offer, we’ve still tried our fair share. So, to get you started (and save you time) here’s a few we’ve liked that we think might ease your suffering (and stink)!

Advice From The Aisles: Dr. Hauschka Skin Care

Guys, it’s really, really good. Sure the Dr. Hauschka looks mysterious and enticing inside that secretive glass cage, but also maybe, a little more expensive too. Why so serious? Why do people gush over these unassuming looking little cream bottles? Is the stuff made of gold? Well, sort of.

Advice From The Aisles: Himalayan Salt Sensation

By Kirsten Malzac, Wellness Department

The holidays may be well over, but the demand for Himalayan Salt products lives on in the Wellness Department at City Market. Himalayan Salt is pure halite, a crystal salt uncovered nearly 260 million years ago as the Primordial Sea evaporated leaving behind a 12,000ft deep and 150 mile wide deposit in the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan. It is now mined in the Khewra Salt Mines giving us the pink salt crystals we see on the shelves today.

Advice From The Aisles: Travel Essentials

By Hailey Neal, Wellness Department

February has few recommendations except for the means we use to endure it: late mornings in bed, hot coffee, and best of all, getting the heck out of town. Whether you’re taking a tropical vacation or just a long drive, sometimes that dreary, gloomy visage on the other side of the glass is better if it’s moving. When you’re on the move it can be all too easy, however, to kick all of your New Year’s Resolutions in favor of convenient and delicious indulgences. That’s why we recommend getting your ducks in a row before you’re tempted to buy that eleven dollar hand cream somebody imposes on you in a shopping mall in Holyoke. Here’s what we’re packing in our travel bags to ensure we’re bringing the wellness with us.

The days may be getting longer but that doesn’t always mean you’re feeling any lighter. The holidays, for many of us, were a time for good old fashioned gluttony. We pampered ourselves and each other for weeks with cookies, beverages, and good company. Now comes the season of guilt. The gym is more packed than usual and heads of lettuce are flying off the shelves. Everybody’s got some kind of resolution to live up to.
