Hot & Spicy Scrub!

Just in time for the cooler fall weather, here's a treatment recipe to indulge your client's senses!

Hot & Spicy Scrub 
(I'm confident you'll have a more creative name!)

In a rubber mixing bowl, mix 1/4 cup Sucanat Sugar with 1/2 teaspoon of  Ginger Root Powder. Add 6 teaspoons of Grapeseed Oil and 6 drops of cinnamon essential oil and mix well. Place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or a large stainless bowl of how water.

Start off the treatment with dry brushing (include it in the price of the treatment, or offer it as an add-on beneficial treatment!)  and apply the scrub according to your regular protocol (don't forget to wrap the client in plastic wrap and cover with a thermal blanket to increase the effects!). Leave on for about 15 - 20 minutes. This is the perfect time for an add-on scalp massage! Little touches like an herbal eye pack or cool pack will stand out to your clients as well. Remove the blankets and sheeting and have the client shower if you do not yet have a Vichy shower. You can also use warm damp towels and a spray bottle to remove.

Be sure to have some hot apple cider or tea on hand to complete the experience!

Easy Fall Add On -> Dry Brushing!

Exfoliation should be an integral part of your clients skin care routine however, not all clients heed your advice or remember it!

By simply offering a dry brush add to your massage services, you can increase profits, ensure your clients skin is properly exfoliated and take their massage experience to a new level - all for under $5!

If you haven't dry brushed before a massage yet - try it. It's easy to explain the benefits however, it's effortless to convey how amazing it felt once you've tried it. If a client can sense/feel through you how much of a difference YOU felt, they will quickly ask to try it. Heck, you can even offer the first one complimentary to get them hooked!

They will be amazed at how relaxing the dry brushing feels itself, followed by how luxurious the oil/lotion feels going on after! I highly recommend a whipped butter!

New Season - New Look!

They say first impressions are the most important, and it could not be more true! Think about when a new client first walks into your spa. Where is the first place they head? Usually it's straight to the reception counter, right? When was the last time you upgraded (or even thought about upgrading) your reception desk? With Fall nearly here, it's time to start thinking about new decor, and furniture you are looking to replace! Need help? We have any style and  price point you are looking for! From classic reception desks, to more modern looking furniture, we have it all! Take a look at some of our popular styles below:

Transitioning To Fall and Winter!

We've been speaking with many clients the last few weeks about their fall menus as well as the upcoming holiday season. While it may seem far off, it will be here before you know it!

Here is one of my all time favorite recipe combinations for the fall and/or winter season that can be used in a multitude of services:

Cinnamon Comfort (or whatever name you'd like to use!)
To start off, create the mood. Fill a diffuser with water and add in the following essential oils: 2 drops of Clove, 5 drops of Cinnamon, and 4 drops of Ginger -  for every ounce of water.

For massages, mani/pedi treatments etc, you can make the following massage oil, cream or lotion:

In a mixing bowl,  mix 4 oz. of unscented oil, cream, or lotion with the following essential oils:  1 drop of Clove, 3 drops of Cinnamon, and 2 drops of Ginger and mix well.

For a cinn-ful body scrub/polish:
In a mixing bowl, mix 8 oz. of unscented salt or sugar with 4 tablespoons of a carrier oil and mix well.  Add in the following essential oils: 5 drops of Clove, 10 drops of Cinnamon, and 5 drops of Ginger.

Very easy to make and use - you can even get sample jars or bottles to give your clients any extra to take home!

Back To School Stress!

Now that most, if not all schools have started back up, some parents have a little extra free time during the day, or are back to regular work schedules. Those back to regular schedules can start to feel like they are running all over the place.

The before school morning rush getting the kid(s) up and out the door while attempting to get themselves ready for work can be similar to a circus. The commute to work during the school year seems to take twice as long - hullo stress! After work many parents are off to practice, games, and other various after school programs - don't forget play dates! Throw in the usual every day things like cleaning, cooking, helping with homework and a variety of other tasks - many parents are always on the "go, go, GO" time schedule.

Have you thought about marketing specifically to those types of clients? Have a back to school special for parents! You can have set days/times to offer super relaxing treatments - with no kids allowed! Heck, even have a quiet room where guests can relax in comfy chairs (like the Loafah Chaise + Spa-Massage Treatment Table) with dim lighting (led candles!), soft music and relaxing teas or cucumber water (the Vitajuwel Decanter Set is the way to go!)to just enjoy some uninterrupted quiet time. Sometimes that is all a parent needs to recharge for the day, week, month!

Not sure where to start? Take a look at some all time favorites among our clients to really push relaxation to the next level:

Curved Japanese Bamboo Lounge Chair
Reclining Reflexology Chair 
Breath Lounge Relaxation Lounge
Aqua Thermassage Tables
Vitajuwel - these are a great unique addition to your decor and make an excellent retail item!
Ultimate ZZZZs Silk Sleep Mask - I have this, it's amazing!

Since many parents may not have all that much time to spare, having a room or area where they don't need to change or spend an hour or day to relax will make it that much more appealing!

Grow Your Business with Tanning Services? Get Your Space Ready with Pure Spa Direct!

Thinking about adding Sunless Tanning to your business, but don't know where to start? Look no further than Pure Spa Direct - Sunless Tanning is a passion of ours, and we've got everything you need to start offering this lucrative service to your clients!


The first thing we always talk to our clients about is space - what kind of space do you have to commit to sunless tanning? Do you have a whole room? Maybe just a corner? Maybe you want to be mobile? All of these options are totally possible! Sunless Tanning is really very easy-going service to add, but you do want to make sure you are keeping in mind a few key thoughts:

  1. Lighting
  2. Ventilation
  3. Space
Lighting for Sunless Tanning Services
With the introduction of HVLP tanning systems, providing an even tan got easier - but that doesn't mean that lighting is not important! Shadows are not your friend when tanning, since they can make you think you've tanned a spot that you haven't hit yet! Be sure there is adequate lighting in your space - a combination of overhead lighting and adjustable lamp lighting usually does the trick! Check out some of our favorite adjustable lamps below:
Versatile Floor Lamp Plus by OttLite
This lamp features a wide shade, sturdy yet lightweight base, and an adjustable flex neck to position the light right where you need it.

Daylight™ Floor Lamp with Magnifier
We understand that working in comfort is very important to you, that's why it features our unique 'Easy-Twist' movement. Effortlessly, you can twist the head and direct the light exactly where you are, not the other way around.

Wing Shade Floor Lamp
The Wing Shade Floor Lamp offers total adjustability with flex neck to direct the low heat, natural OttLite High Definition illumination where you need it.

 Ventilation for Sunless Tanning Service
Ventilation is very important to consider when you are offering Sunless Tanning Services, as well! Keeping your air clean is key for your clients AND your employees. Depending on the size of your space, as well as your local regulations, we have a number of ventilation options:

Extraction Fan
If you are a mobile technician, or short on space, you might want to consider using an extraction fan. These are great to put in the back of a pop-up tent, as well!

Fresh Air Screen

A clean air and ventilation enclosure using Micro-Whirlwind Technology, perfect for creating a dedicated spray tan area for professional salons or spas. Using Micro-Whirlwind extractions fans that help remove the dirt in the air of any room when spray tanning, this thereby helps to protect the safety and health of both the clients and the staff.  

Space for Sunless Tanning Service
Whether your space is large or small, it is important to keep in mind that there WILL be overspray when sunless tanning - when you are atomizing a liquid and spraying it, this is inevitable! We have a number of options to help keep your space looking fresh and professional!

Tanning Curtain
To protect your walls from overspray, the simplest and least expensive is to simply use a dark colored curtain.  It is compact and easy to put up and down, which makes it perfect for mobile tanners or salons who don't have enough room to have a permanent spray tan area set up. Machine Washable is always a bonus!


Pop-Up Tent
Tanning Tents usually have easy to clean walls, cutting cleaning time down from minutes to seconds, as well as clear panels on top to allow for extra light, helping you apply a flawless spray tan. It is compact and easy to put up and down which makes it perfect for mobile tanners or salons who don't have enough room to have a permanent spray tan area set up. 

Tanning Screen

A tanning enclosure, perfect for creating a dedicated spray tan area for professional salons or spas. The simple click and lock-in system and replaceable filters that simply just slide in makes it easy to set up, dismantle, maintain and keep clean. Made from lightweight aluminum, the screen can be adjusted to fit any sized room with its custom 360° hinges.

Deciding and understanding your space and how to best use it for Sunless Tanning is the first obstacle! If you have questions or would like suggestions, feel free to contact Pure Spa Direct - our knowledgeable Sales Team would love to help you drive your business forward!

The Scent Of A Man

Smell is an incredibly powerful sense that can have amazing results in your business.

Most clients I speak with are all using essential oils throughout their spa in multiple ways. From diffusing the air, infusing oils into various treatments to retail products - there's no reason to not incorporate aromatherapy!

I see a lot of lavender, vanilla, the menthol families and citrus families with most spas. With the steady rise of male clients each year, do you have "manlier" scents going on any where?

The possibilities are up to your imagination!

You can have a "guys only" room or section of the spa. Decked out with furniture and treatments geared towards guys. Here are some awesome pieces to think about:

Kasper Classic Barber Chair
Vilho Salon Styling Chair
Rigmora Styling Chair
DIR Pedicure Station Dragon
Davidson Barber Chair - Red (this is one of my all time favorite chairs!)
Les Series Reception Chair / Black by BIGA

In those areas, be sure to have more manly scents along with a few of the industry standards. Here are some awesome ones to try out:

Make sure your straight razors, hot lather machine and clippers/trimmers are all on point!

Last and certainly not least, don't forget retail. There are so many amazing retail products geared towards men! 

Here are some top sellers here:


Even if you don't offer men's services, have men's products for their mothers, wives, sisters, girlfriends, etc to get for them!!!
