Borgata’s Director of Spas, Jen Aarons, explained the personal benefits of pumpkin during the fall season. With its many nutrients and vitamins, it has become a beneficial treatment for many services in the spas and at home. Jen filled us in on how they currently use pumpkin in Spa Toccare and how you can treat yourself at home.
It’s officially pumpkin spice time! If you’re looking for a way to indulge in the scents and sensations of the approaching autumn season, Borgata’s spas and salons are ready to help! We’re offering one-of-a-kind special fall treatments that are infused with your favorite seasonal scents at both Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa.
In the fall, we harvest several different varieties of “winter squash” – acorn squash, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, etc. – much to the delight of chefs and cooks everywhere. Here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, few chefs have mastered the art of cooking squash like Executive Chef Aram Mardigian of Wolfgang Puck American Grille.
But one of the great things about Thanksgiving dinner is that many of the basic dishes at the traditional feast are on the list – most notably cranberries (as in sauce) and pumpkin (as in pie).
Cranberries are filled with disease fighting antioxidants and Vitamin C. They’re actually considered one of the healthiest fruits you can eat. Pumpkins are also filled with anti-oxidants and Vitamin C, but also are a good source of Vitamin A and E.
OK, so at this point, you may be asking what does this have to do with the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s special spa treatments for November? Cranberries and pumpkins?
Not in food, mind you, but in our October line-up of spa specials at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. Once again our spa experts have put together a group of special treatments utilizing natural ingredients, vitamins, organic botanicals and minerals.
And while outside fall is a season of endings, at Borgata’s spas it’s a season of both rejuvenation and relaxation.
And while you’re here, you might want to check out Borgata’s great dining options. Our Borgata chefs are pretty good at fall flavors as well.
Here’s a look at Borgata’s spa specials for October:
Fall is upon us and that means only one thing – its pumpkin time! Throughout the holiday season, pumpkins will be everywhere. They’ll be on porches, carved into jack-o-lanterns and baked into holiday pies.
That’s just scratching the surface as pumpkin spice and pumpkin flavors will abound in everything from pastries to fancy coffee drinks. And there will be no better place to take advantage of this pumpkin frenzy than at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s The Metropolitan which will present a special pumpkin inspired menu.
We call it the Pumpkin Patch and it takes advantage of the incredible versatility of pumpkins. You might not know this, but the pumpkin you carve into a jack o’lantern isn’t the same type of pumpkin you bake into a pie. There are actually more than 40 different varieties of pumpkins out there and while some are best used for scary Halloween decorations and fall displays, others are just right for cooking…
