Product Of The Week: Aromafloria Sinus Help Inhalation Beads

Happy Friday!

Now that cold and flu season has been hitting areas hard, do you have any items on hand to ease congestion?

Aromafloria Sinus Help Inhalation Beads are an excellent, effective and affordable item everyone should have at their retail counter this season. We had a bottle here in the office and I purchased one as a gift for my mother last year - amazing!  A year later, and my mother still talks about how these helped clear her head.

These powerful little beads are full of eucalyptus, peppermint and lemongrass to easy congestion and boost the stuffiest of moods. They come with a cute little pouch to fill with the beads making inhalation easy and portable.  You don't have to fill the pouch up completely as a little can go a long way, depending on the level of congestion.

Did I mention these are only $5.50 each? Have a tester bottle nearby, offer it to clients to try or try it on them during a service if they are congested! Retailing at $10.00 makes it appealing to clients as well, especially once they've had a chance to smell (and feel!) how great this is.

These make great impulse item purchases, gifts and you can easily use them as an add on "boost"!

Product Of The Week: CryoDerm® Magnesium Calming Cream

Happy Friday!

I was super excited when I saw this new addition to the Pure Spa Direct line up. I'm a huge fan of magnesium lotions and oils. It has helped me with migraines and muscle cramping, and I recommend it to friends regularly.

Aside from the benefits I have experienced with magneisum, CryoDerm® Magnesium Calming Cream is helpful with a multitude of things including fluid retention, calming nerves and detoxifying the body, insomnia, eczema and psoriasis. Harvested from the Dead Sea where the mineral content is at its highest containing 21 minerals, this product is amazing.

You can retail and use this in services making it an easy retail item. Offer it as an add on to a pedicure (medi pedi upgrade!), manicure, massage even as a simple hand/leg massage while a client is getting a facial. Advise they try it a few times to see the results, and have it ready to retail!

See you next Friday, have an amazing weekend!

Slim Down As The Year Winds Down

I still cannot believe we're already into October, this year is flying by!

Detox and slimming treatments are always trending, however the end of the year always shows a big push in detox services. Clients want to look their absolute best for events, parties and reunions.

If you're looking to add something new to your body wraps, here is an extremely profitable recipe idea, to have your clients feeling bright and tight!

Slim It Down!

In large rubber mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cup of green tea powder with 1 teaspoon of borage oil. After mixing well, add in 3/4 cup of dead sea mud and 2 teaspoons of grapeseed oil. Mix this all up well, and place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or even a large stainless bowl filled with hot water. You want the mixture to be warm when applying to the client.

Perform the body wrap as you normally would, along with any add ons like dry brushing, Eco Fin or a scalp massage. Add on services are a great way to further boost profits and increase clients satisfaction!

Menu Spotlight: Back Acne Be Gone!!!

Since this is the season of dare to bare, people want their skin as flawless as possible without having to spend a fortune. If you have clients with back acne, this is a great, affordable (yet cost AND time effective for your business!) treatment to test out in your Summer menu.

Back Masque - think of a clever name to fit your menu theme/style!

In a medium rubber mixing bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of marine fango with 4-6 drops of eucalyptus oil. Prep your bed for a body treatment, placing a protective covering on. Place a heating pad set on low on the table, so that it will line up under the client's back area. Spread a layer of the masque on to a disposable pad, and place on the heating pad. You can also apply the masque to the client's back with a body brush, and have them lie down on the disposable pad and heating pad.

If you've up sold the client into services to be done at the same time, begin those will the client is laying on the masque.

Once the other services have been completed, remove the back masque with warm, damp towels.

Take a look at some information and ideas for add on treatments to up sell, here.

I Can See Clearly Now...That My Eyes Aren't Puffy!


For those who suffer from allergies, itchy puffy eyes can be a real problem. For clients who have sensitive eyes, suffer headaches or are just plain stressed out, tired and puffy eyes can be just as annoying.
 
One of the newest additions to the Pure Spa line up is bulk packs of  Gel Eye Patches that are wonderful when refrigerated! These little gems can also be warmed up in some warm water if your client prefers! These make great gifts, add-ons, retail items and giveaway/promo items! Two different styles to choose from, take a look at them both here!

Looking for something a little different, we saw that coming (couldn't resist) and also have these cute gel eye masks for you as well!

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 Eco-Fin Scent For The Holiday Seasons

I love Eco-Fin, it may be my favorite add on service. It's cost effective, easy to use, easy to upsell and the scents are awesome. I was excited to see the newest addition to the scent family, Jubilee/Berry Winter. It's perfect for the holiday season with a combination of pine, berries, cedarwood, rose and cinnamon - it smells like winter!

As always, there's no petroleum, artificial dyes, or synthetic fragrances and it's chock full of nourishing ingredients like shea buttervitamin E, organic coconut oil and more!

If you're looking for something new, different or simply seasonal to add to your menu, I highly recommend this!

Extra Extra! What Extras Do YOU Use To Gain Your Clients' Loyalty?

It's no secret, especially in this industry that it is the little things that are important. So much so that your client retention can depend on those little things. Offering little extras to your clients can mean the difference between them coming back to you, or seeing what your competition is doing.

Everyone wants and likes to feel special, your clients are especially. You are in a unique position to make them feel beautiful inside and out. I've mentioned before that showing your clients you care about them as a person, can be the difference between a spa hopper and a life long relationship.

It could be something as little gifts like a sample from the amazing Control Corrective line! (pick items tied into the services they come in for or retail items!), client appreciation days/specials even something as complimentary Eco-Fin treatments! Pay attention to your conversations with clients, note important events or likes on their profile or service card. The key is to make sure you look over the profile card BEFORE they come in for the appointment. Bring up whatever it is during your conversation, they will be impressed you "remembered". If they have an event or something they are excited for coming up, offer a complimentary add on, retail item (even a few sample packs or mini nail polish if you don't want to offer full size gifts) or even a coupon off their next visit.

I know most salons/spas offer complimentary beverages, how is your presentation? I love seeing drink dispensers that are on the fancier or unique looking side. The Vitajuwel line is beautiful, unique and comes elegantly packaged making a great presentation if you decide to retail them!

Scentual Sleep - Aromatherapy Time!

Sleep....something most people these days are not getting enough of. Clients coming in for any service, are coming in to also get away from the craziness of their daily routines. I read an article recently on some spas offering sleep themed services to help their client's get even more relaxation out of their visit. Some were even extending hours on certain days, offering services in darker lit rooms. Even for the ones who were offering their sleep services all day long (you never know what clients work schedules may be!) having services designed to enhance sleep is an awesome way to pull new client's in.

Now for the scent part which, is one of the most important things for me when I enter ANY business, especially a spa. For now, we'll focus on scents that will help he overall relaxation experience which in turn, will allow the client to go home and snuggle into bed. Here are some of the top essential oils that your client's will be dreaming of:

Essential Oil Blend - Peaceful Sleep by Now --with chamomile, lavender and sandlewood (plus more!) you cannot go wrong with this blend. It's the warm fuzzy blanket you had as a kid, in a scent.

ESS® Relaxation Oil Blend - I have this in the diffuser in my bedroom right now. It's an interesting blend of earthy and calming scents. If you are looking for a scent that will make your client's ask where to buy it...this is it and you can retail it!

ESS Roman Chamomile Pure Essential Oil - a tried and true favorite for relaxation

Lotus Touch Relaxation Essential Oil Blend

Check out the full line of essential oils here!

Also, have some eye packs to retail to your clients and for use in services!

Awesome Add On! Collagen Gloves And Socks!!!!

I love add on options, with anything. If something is presented in an exciting or different way, I want it. I saw the new collagen mask socks and gloves and immediately needed to know more. Are your clients still excited over your add on options? Are you and your staff bored of offering them (which in turn makes it easy for clients to decline)?

Moisturizing collagen gloves and socks are just the thing to jump start some excitement!

Loaded with collagen and vitamin e, these two items will soften your clients skin while you finish their nails. Another key point for both of these is they block UV rays!

No added time, just added profit and happy clients!

Spring 2014 Spa Week Dates Announced - Are You Ready?

Spa Week is a bi-annual, nationwide event that focuses on personal health and wellness of consumers. The dates for Spring 2014 Spa Week have just been announced - April 21-27! Is your business ready?

In March, you will be able to start booking discounted Spa treatments for Spa Week via www.spaweek.com. In the meantime, you have about 6 weeks to prepare your Spa Week treatment menu and marketing!

Successful Spa Week treatments are usually basic treatments, such as facials or massages, provided to your clients at discounted rates. You will be booked solid, so be sure to stock up early on the products you need to perform during this very busy week!

Spa Week is a great opportunity to introduce new clients to your full service menu, and gain new business! If your team is well trained in the skills of upselling and cross selling, Spa Week can open up many new avenues of revenue for your business. Once a client comes in for a $50 treatment, a skilled technician can easily upsell various add-ons or retail products, not only to increase profit, but also to build confidence and trust.

Do you participate in Spa Week? Which services will you be offering?

Smell The Money!!!!

The power of smell is one of the greatest triggers of sense memories in my opinion. Everyone has at least one smell that instantly transports them into a memory, hopefully good!

As a business owner, you always want people to feel amazing from the moment they walk through your doors. I posted recently about how important good smells are for business as far as ambiance.

Another great way to cash in on smells is by using essential oils in your treatments and retailing them to your clients. By simply having an essential oil warming by the door, cash register or bathrooms you are engaging the client's senses and you will find people asking what the great smell is....perfect opportunity for you to sell them a bottle or three!

Check out some of the great oil warmers and diffuser:

Soapstone Oil Diffuser - this is the one I have, it has lasted me years!
Soapstone Turtle Oil Diffuser
Hourglass Shaped Oil Diffuser
Iron and Copper Oil Diffuser
Brown Sun Oil Diffuser - my other fav!
Traditional Oil Massage Warmer with Stainless Steel Lining by Ajara Ayurvedic Beauty


Here at Pure Spa Direct we have a long list of essential oils to choose from. It can be a bit overwhelming knowing which smells to choose from and even harder to blend them for custom scents. My favorite line of essential oils is the ESS line. Check them out you will see listed not only information about the smell but what it can be blended with. We took the guess work out for you!

If you are still unsure or are like me and like having something handy to reference, check out this awesome book: The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy

This book has recipes, pictures, charts and usage guides! What more could you possibly need to add a thriving essential oil line into every aspect of your business to increase revenue?!? Seriously adding essential oils into any aspect of your business you have the potential to double your profits.

Pour Some Sugar On Me

I'm a huge fan of body scrubs, my all time favorite is still the Desert Mineral Detox Scrub. I am always looking for great new products to try and recommend.

This past week I tried the Zanzibar Clove Sugar Scrub by Mother Earth. The first thing I noticed was how great it smelled. It has a subtle clove smell, not too strong where it's all you can smell. The second thing I noticed was the consistency, it's slightly less abrasive than many of the sugar scrubs I've tried.  I have very sensitive skin and this scrub was gentle enough to not irritate it.

A little bit of this stuff goes a long way, it really is a cost effective product! You can go a long way using this for your services, the profit margin is something everyone can be happy with. It also is a great product to retail to your clients.

I highly recommend if you do use this on your clients to have some hot towels ready to remove it. Many scrubs can be removed with just a regular wipe but this one sticks to your skin a little bit more. Plus, a hot towel always feels great and is a nice touch. (check out the great hot towel cabinets available!)

My favorite thing about this scrub is the smell once I showered. My skin did feel amazing but the lingering hint of clove was perfect. Sometimes scrubs only smell good while they are on, this one stayed on until I showered again the next morning.

If you're looking for something a little bit different for your service menu and/or a new retail product to try, this is a great budget friendly product to give a shot.
