Prep for Turkey Day with Holiday Pedicures!

Now that the excitement of Halloween has died down, Thanksgiving is almost here! Are you going to be offering any Thanksgiving nail specials to entice existing and attract new clients? Offering something new and different from your competition will have your clients ?

Here is a pedicure treatment to ease dry, tired feet whether your clients will be cooking, socializing or shopping!

Thanksgiving Pedicure - complete with a foot soak, masque and moisturizer

Foot Soak:
Add 8 drops of spearmint essential oil and 4 drops rosemary essential oil to your filled pedicure bowl or tub (you can easily make this more "manly" by using cedarwood or sandalwood instead of rosemary oil)


Foot Masque:
In a rubber mixing bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of Sedona Mud Powder with 1 tablespoon of water and stir. Add in 1 teaspoon of clove powder and mix well. Add in 5 drops of spearmint essential oil followed by 1 1/2 tablespoons of cornmeal and mix well. As the mixture sits,the cornmeal may absorb the water, slowly add more as needed. Place the bowl into a hot towel cabi or mud warmer.

Moisturizer:
Combine 1/2 tablespoon whipped shea butter with 3 drops of spearmint and 2 drops rosemary essential oil (again, you can switch the rosemary oil for male clients if they prefer). Place the bowl into a hot towel cabi or mud warmer as well.

Soak the clients feet for 5-10 minutes after cleaning and disinfecting them. Apply the foot masque to one foot to just above the knee. Place a plastic liner and electric or herbal bootie over the foot before moving to the other leg/foot. Allow the masque to sit for 10 minutes before removing the bootie. Cut the tip of the liner to allow you to access the clients toes. Perform your regular pedicure procedure (check out the new polishes!) while the masque sits on the clients legs. Remove the liner and mixture when finished - hot towels work great for this! Finish off with the moisturizer, giving any excess to the client to take home.
