Studies show that when we do something kind for another person, our own happiness increases. One act of kindness can create a virtuous cycle that brings regular acts of love into your relationship. We're not just talking about THE act of love (although that may be the end result), we're talking about a soft, sensuous massage.
Start out with a Tender is the Night massage bar. This luxurious, heart-shaped bar is intended for one use (or two, if your partner is feeling generous). Crush the light, velvety bar between your hands and inhale the seductive scent of jasmine, ylang ylang and vanilla. The shea butter and almond oil melt in your hands, and onto the back and body of your loved one.
Now, the fun part.
Start at the top, shoulders and arms, and work your way down the back as you melt the butters onto the skin, hands gliding smoothly. Set the unused portion of the bar aside for them to use on you later, or go all the way and rub the entire bar all over their body from head to toe. Work your hands into the muscles, rubbing out any kinks or knots you find. Try to keep your hands on their body the entire time to keep your partner relaxed.
Press your fingers up and widen them across the base of the scalp, rub around their ears, gently pull the earlobes. Massage the jaw, remind them to breathe deeply and release the tension in their face and body. Rub down the ne...
Happy New Year!
Now that the holidays have almost all passed, (the 12 Days of Christmas end on January 6th), the hangovers are slowly subsiding, and the pants that fit last week are now cutting off circulation; it's time to celebrate a new year. There are so many ways to ring in the New Year - polar bear swims, shiny new calendars, and maybe even new pants. And of course, there's that tradition that never seems to stick - resolutions.
At LUSH, we believe in the right to make mistakes, lose everything, and start all over again. We also believe in keeping it Fresh. A new year, and a fresh start never gets old with us. While change and starting over can happen at any time, there's nothing like the optimism of a new year to revaluate, set goals, and make it happen.
There's no right or wrong way to make a resolution - you don’t even need to call it a resolution. You can approach it from the perspective of wanting to take action on some part of you, or you can see it as an opportunity to look forward to events and celebrations of the coming year. So whether you want to stop biting your nails, finally take the leap on a decision you've been procrastinating on, or make a collage of aspirations - it's completely up to you.
The most important thing to consider when setting a resolution for yourself? Have a positive attitude, and set clear, attainable steps to make it happen. Don’t try to do too much at once. They say it takes 28 days to break a habit; why not break those 28 days up into 28 daily goals to get you on your way?
For example, if you've decided that this is the year that you're going to start taking more bubble baths, here are some ideas to get you started:
Chase away the winter chills with this recipe for Vegan Gingerbread Cookies loaded with sugar, spice, and everything nice.
These treats are so delicious even the most discerning Santa will never know that they're dairy and egg-free. If your cravings for spicy treats are on high, after you empty the cookie jar of course, is the bath tub for some warming confections to really heat up your holidays.
For warming soaks that stop the shivers dead in their tracks use our crackling Cinders Bath Bomb or our slightly tipsy Father Christmas (he's had a few nips of brandy). If you're more the bubbly type crumble Santa's Sack or Rocket Reusable Bubble Bar in to your tub for voluptuous spicy bubbles. You nostalgic types needn’t worry either, we brought back your beloved Gingerbread House Bubble Bar to our online-only Retro shop too. With this many warming treats think of the money you'll save on your winter heating bills!
But first, let's fill that cookie jar with... Vegan Gingerbread Cookies
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, room temperature (solid)
- 1/2 cup fancy molasses
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract<...
