Don't Be Fooled By The Rocks That I Got...

No, I'm not talking about Jenni from the block... I'm talking about Gigantic Amethyst Cathedral Geodes.

These Gigantic Amethyst Cathedral Geodes are from Brazil and are loaded with sparkle and nicely defined points. Geodes are a variable phenomenon and, therefore, many theories exists to explain how they are created. The term geode is derived from the Greek word Geoides which means "earthlike." These true wonders of nature come from a series of basaltic flows in the southern Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul. They are mined by hard rock mining methods, then cleaned, cut and polished by local craftsmen. These Gigantic Amethyst Cathedral Geodes are natural formations and each is one of a kind.

Gigantic Amethyst Cathedral Geodes are great for display in your spa or salon to spread the protective, spiritual healing energies of amethyst.  We have a terrific variety of these amazing one of a kind wonders!

Is Your Business Ready for Valentine's Day?


Clients have been calling in and chatting with us about services they will be offering in the month of February for Valentines Day. I am excited to share some ideas of what types of services can be offered for this holiday!

If you are offering facials at your spa, you can try a chocolate mask or rose petal mask.  A chocolate scrub is another add-on service that can be offered. Heart sponges can be used for these services as well. 

For waxing services, there is strawberry wax by Mancine or chocolate wax by Epillyss to get clients prepared for Valentine's Day. 

For nail services these heart nail decals are so cute. Why not use heart nail files and heart buffers? Not to mention all of the nail polishes we offer. There are so many reds, pinks, and white colors to choose from. For pedicures, we have rose petals to put in the water. What a great way to entice clients to pamper themselves.

For tanning services, give every client a heart sticker to put on while tanning. Get them in the holiday spirit!

For massage check out these chocolate massage oils or cocoa massage lotion.

A service that can be added on to pretty much any service you offer is a hand treatment. Eco-Fin has a great system for this. The chocolate paraffin alternative is the perfect scent to try for Valentine's Day. The Eco-Fin paraffin alternative starter kit has everything you need to start performing this nourishing treatment. Eco-Fin is made with 100 % natural plant-based emollients and pure essential oils.This is a great way to introduce a new service, that you will keep offering after the holiday is over!

How Do I Know Which Wax Warmer is the Right One for Me?

New Year =
New Wax Warmer


I love The Happy Heater wax warmer by Cirepil. The happy face was enough to make me want to buy it. :)

The features and benefits of this wax warmer are amazing. The temperature dial is the first order of business I will discuss. This wax warmer has the most efficient temperature control that I have used. With hard wax, the warmer needs to melt the wax at a cooler temperature. This wax warmer takes the guessing out of warming up the wax. I turn it up high to melt the wax and it is super fast. A few minutes before my client arrives for their waxing appointment, I turn the temperature down. The wax melts consistently and does not leave a hard block in the middle. More beads can easily be added and melted down quickly.

I have tried 4 other wax warmers so far and I like this one the best. It is small and easy to take with you if you travel to client's homes. The cord and plug are durable. There is a space on the bottom of the warmer to conveniently secure the cord when not in use. This helps me with my travel needs, keeping everything clean and neat.

This wax warmer is easy to clean with equipment cleaners, rubbing alcohol, or even baby oil. The price point for what you are getting is great. $65 for a reliable wax warmer works for me! I also love that it comes with a cover. In between clients, or when traveling from place to place, I always cover the wax that is left in the warmer. I want to keep everything as sanitary as possible. I also do not double dip into this wax warmer. Along with this wax warmer, some suggested supplies are 99% isopropyl alcohol, empty wax tins, and a power strip. Check them out today!

Happy Waxing!!!

Stop, Hammer Time!

Brings back some memories, doesn't it? But I am not talking about the Hammer Time dance, the amazing pants, or the totally rad hair of the 80's - I'm talking about the tool your salon, spa, or waxing studio absolutely NEEDS!

Do you buy your wax in bulk? How do you break up your wax blocks to fit it in your warmer? Check out the coolest wax tool - the LYCON Speedy Wax Hammer! Place your block of wax in a plastic bag and have at it with this hammer - makes for great stress relief, as well! It is compact, lightweight, and effective, not to mention cute and pink, too!

Stop by Pure Spa Direct for all of your wax needs - we have it all!


Now, everyone, revel in the nostalgia for a moment....

Another Excuse to Indulge in Chocolate!


As if we need a reason, I'm sure most (who am I kidding - most likely ALL) of your clients are chocolate aficionados. Countless studies have shown that chocolate, specifically cocoa flavanol, can help to improve skin. It is known to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, as well as signs of aging in areas around the eyes. It increases hydration levels and skin elasticity. With Valentine's Day approaching, have you thought about adding any chocolate treatments into your spa service menu? Why not start with our Spa Pantry Cocoa Powder to create a Chocolate Indulgence Mask for your clients!
  • Simply Mix the Cocoa powder with coconut oil, and slightly heat until it's all blended together. 
  • Add honey, and apply as a mask during your facial services.
  • Leave on your client's face for ten to twenty minutes.
  • Rinse with warm water and a towel or sponge.
Your clients will love this indulgent service. It not only smells amazing, but the anti-aging benefits will have them coming back for more!
