The latest craze are Essential Oil Diffusers! These are an amazing way to add a nice little touch to your spa. Not only will your clients love the way your spa smells, but they can bring it home with them. This is a great item to retail to clients.

Roll On Oils...Watch the $$$ Roll In!

With gift-giving season approaching at the speed of an express train, it's a great time to bring in some new and different retail items.

My love of essential oils and all things aromatherapy brings me to this awesome retail product... Roll On Essential Oils. One of my favorite brands of essential oils, ESS, has a great line of roll ons. Take a look:

ESS Therapy Roll-On

With blends like Relaxation, Inspiration, Love and more you can price these gems to fly out the door. They make great stocking stuffers, co-worker gifts or as supplemental gifts!

Many times with various blends that I love, I will dab a few drops on myself rather than in a diffuser since I can't really carry one around with me everywhere I go. You can advertise the oils to be used this way as well, some clients may not have thought about using them that way!

Here are some of the top selling brands of essential oils:

Aura Cacia
Ess
Lotus Touch
Mother Earth

I know many of us automatically associate lavender with calming, relaxing, and aiding in sleep, but lavender is really a wonderful plant, which creates a truly amazing essential oil, that can be incorporated into so many treatments in your day spa.

As we have discussed before, scents and smells really round out any spa experience, and lavender is such a comforting, relaxing scent to so many people. If someone new to the industry asked me what the #1 essential oil they should have available, my response would unequivocally would be lavender. However, did you know that it does so much more than relaxes?

Lavender Properties:

  • Anti-Bacterial
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Wound-Healing
  • Rejuvenating aging skin
  • Analgesic
  • Regulating / Calming
