Serenity is Bliss!

With the hustle and bustle of everyday living, the state of being calm, peaceful, and unbothered may not come so easy. Clients are looking to escape into pure serenity!

Here are some great ideas that will help you provide a blissful experience that will keep your clients coming back for more.



Create a serene atmosphere!




Natural salt lamps are great! These natural salt lamps are hand-shaped from select chunks of the finest, most potent salt crystal in the world. However, these attractive lamps provide more than ambient, soothing light. Some users may experience homeopathic health benefits from using them --the most immediate and dramatic being for those suffering from respiratory allergies and/or asthma.






 Music will relieve anxiety and stress!




The soothing power of music is an extremely effective stress management tool. Playing soft music in the background will help your customer to enjoy their spa experience.




The use of a diffuser is key to having a great smelling spa!




This Diffuser is perfect for both, adding humidity to the air and dispersing your desired scent of essential oil to enhance your room's atmosphere! The ultrasonic nebulizer transforms water and essential oil into a cool mist. It also includes output adjustment buttons for a low or high mist and has a safe auto-off feature when the water runs out. Offers a whisper quiet operating system – so it can be used both at night and during the day. This Unique Aromatherapy Diffuser offers a lighting feature to create a relaxing therapeutic mood, or can be used as a night light! 

Distilled water is recommended to prevent mineral build up

Vac-Spray Beauty Benefits

When I get a facial, I am always so amazed by how clean my skin is! Quite simply, during a facial, you are getting a clean that you simply can't get at home. What are you using to achieve this deep clean?

One of the best, most effective ways to clear out the pores is with suction! A vacuum is used just like a household vacuum. It cleans the pores by suctioning out the embedded dirt and oil. While the suction cleans, the vacuum provides a penetrating massage and stimulates blood flow.

The spray is used to flush out these freshly vacuumed pores, to thoroughly clean the surface of the skin. The spray can be used with water to rinse, moisten, or soothe the skin. Also great to use with products!

Interested, but on a budget? Take a look at the Encore Table Top Vacuum / Spray Two Function Machine! At this low price, after use in 2 services, it is pure profit.

However, my top pick is the Silhouet-Tone Cirrus Vac Spray!

Vac Spray Includes:
  • 1 blackhead cupping glass: to loosen comedones in difficult areas like the nose, chin, and ears. It's used prior to manual extraction.
  • 1 anti-wrinkle cupping glass: increases blood circulation; oxygenates the skin and stimulates cell nutrition.
  • 1 facial massage cupping glass: provides intense oxygenation of the skin through blood and lymph circulation. Ideal for eye treatments.

Vacuum / Spray Facial Machine Troubleshooting - This Common Mistake Can FRY Your Vacuum / Spray Equipment... READ THIS NOW!

Do you use a vacuum/spray unit in your facials? This equipment is so effective to assist in getting a really nice, deep clean for all skin types.

We recently had a client who was having some trouble with her vacuum/spray unit, and it was found that at some point, the unit was set up incorrectly. In talking to the manufacturer's technician, they told us they see this trouble often, so I wanted to share this important information with our readers!

vacuum/spray unit is a fairly simple piece of equipment to use, but the trouble is that the setup for the vacuum side and the spray side is the same - usually the same color tubing is attached to either an input for the vacuum (which sucks inward), or an output for the spray (which sprays outward).

If the tubing for the spray bottle is attached to the vacuum input, water or liquid can be sucked into the equipment. Once water has made its way into the innards of the unit, it can cause damage to the motor, and eventually cause the motor to seize or stop working. All it takes is 1 time - even if the error is realized almost immediately - if a small amount of water is pulled into the unit, it could eventually cause damage you can't see.

Take a look at the photos below - these are the inside of a vacuum/spray unit that has gotten water inside, and stopped working:


In order to prevent this from happening, we strongly suggest marking the hoses and coinciding connector on the machine with color coding to help ensure the equipment is set up properly. Something as simple as, for example, a red dot of nail polish on the hose and a red dot above the corresponding connector for the vacuum and a different color for the spray hose/connector can make all the difference in keeping your equipment working as it should!

Your hands and your equipment are the lifeblood of your business - a quick marking can keep it running properly!

Waxing Retail Ideas

Waxing is huge right now! I speak to waxers every day, and have personal experience in the field as well! As a waxer, it is so important to educate your clients. For the amazing results, all client's expect, there is some upkeep on their end. Are you educating your clients on how to get the best results AND how to maintain between services?

We have just added this amazing retail display by DIR. Take a look at Gems Retail Display Shelf with LED Illumination!

Available in white, black, or grey. It is modern and has neutral colors to fit your space. If you are worried about space, it would work in your treatment room as well! That way you can talk to your client about the maintenance and easily grab the products during or after the service!

Now, what to fill the shelves with! I've tried it all! Take a look at my top picks!

For Exfoliation 

Regular skin exfoliation is the most important in any post waxing treatments! Scrubbing away the dead skin is vital. It clogs pores and causes ingrown hair.

Retail a simple pair of exfoliating gloves. They are inexpensive, need to be replaced often, and really work! This even makes a great free gift for your first-time clients.

Retail an effective body scrub, to help remove that dead skin and leave the skin feeling silky smooth! My pick is the Mancine Hot Salt Body Scrub - Lavender & Witch-Hazel.

It consists of marine extracts that have been blended with Australian Sea Salts then mixed with Jojoba Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Soya Bean oil and fruit acids to form a deep, exfoliating body scrub to remove dry dead skin.

The perfect formulation of relaxing lavender with natural witch hazel cleanses, tones and cools the skin, with moisturizing herbal humectants acting to organically sooth and remove excess oil. Witch hazel calms skin blemishes and irritations whilst the lavender leaves your skin lightly fragranced - the perfect organic blend. Which is why it is my favorite!

Preventing Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown(zone) Triple Action Post-Depilatory Lotion

This is imported from Australia and is naturally formulated with active ingredients to reduce the appearance of ingrown hairs and bumps.

It slows and softens future hair growth, and is super moisturizing on the skin!

Client Comfort Items

We have so many options for items that can be used in service and make easy retail sales! My pick is the Kozi Shoulder Wrap!

This ultra soft shoulder wrap is designed to cover the contours of the neck and shoulders. Perfect for soothing tight, tired muscles, it will stay in place while your client walks, stands, or sits. Aromatherapy benefits are increased when it is heated in the microwave.

Just for Fun

Sheet masks, under eye masks, and lip masks are such a simple retail item. Celebrities are all over social media using them, and it is so trendy! Having these options not only give real results but are so fun!

Satin Smooth Serum Sheet Mask Display Box in Charcoal 
This Sheet Mask Collection with six customized, serum-drenched facial masks. Display box contains
24 masks, each individually wrapped for single use. Great for salon, spa and home use. Dermatologist Tested.

The Charcoal Mask is enriched with activated charcoal to help clean and purify oily skin. It also contains niacinamide and acai berry extract, which can aid in balancing skin tone and refining pores for softer, smoother-looking skin.

Clear Your Clients with Eucalyptus

It is the dead of winter throughout the US, and I - like many people I think - have been struggling with a cold all week. It isn't bad enough to warrant staying home, but annoying enough with slight sinus congestion. I bet a ton of your clients are feeling this way also!

Is there something you can do to help? One word - EUCALYPTUS.

I have been simply breathing in Eucalyptus Essential Oil to help clear my sinuses, but you can take it a step or two further....and it is affordable and WORKS!

For your massage clients who may have some winter congestion, place a bowl of hot water on the floor under the face cradle. Add in a few drops of eucalyptus oil, and have them breathe deeply. Instant clearing!

We also have an amazing Eucalyptus Massage Oil. If someone offered to do a brief facial massage with this oil right now, I would immediately close my eyes and turn my face up. Your clients will LOVE this little touch - a great way to end a winter massage, facial, body treatment, or waxing treatment!

Help your stuffy clients out, and make them love you even more! Don't forget Eucalyptus Retail items, so your clients can feel better at home - and think of you when they do!
