Not All Salts are Created Equal!

Salt has gained such a bad rep over the past few decades. This is largely because of commercial table salt that we see everywhere which can cause heart and health problems when consumed excessively! The good news is there's a salt out there that is actually good for you and can help enhance your clients' skin and overall beauty.

Himalayan Sea Salt has been gaining popularity over the last few years, and for good reason! This type of salt is packed with 84 different minerals and naturally contain iodine. Compared to table salt, which is stripped of iodine and vital minerals, Himalayan sea salt is used for detoxification, muscle relaxation, and even sinus issues! Does your spa have any products containing it? You might want to consider getting on this latest trend to help enhance your massage, pedicure, and even facial treatments!

We have a variety of Himalayan Sea Salt products here at Pure Spa Direct. Check out my favorites below!
How adorable are these Himalayan Salt Massage Stones Hearts?! These massage stones  are derived of salt crystals from an ancient primal sea beneath the Himalayan Mountains are hand-carved into massage stones that gently soothe away an accumulation of stress, tension and pollutants. Your clients will love them!





Are you in need of more decor in your spa? Our Himalayan Salt Pyramid Lamp is made with the white salt and has a beautiful natural wood base for an elegant touch. You might want to consider retailing these to your clients as well!

Ancient Healing with Ayurveda

Are you looking to intrigue your clients by adding a brand new service to your spa? One that enriches the mind and brings emotional balance? How about one that dates back nearly 5,000 years ago?!

Incorporate the ritualistic healing of Shirodhara into your spa, which stems from Ayurveda, an ancient natural healing process from India. Here at Pure Spa Direct, we offer a plethora of products from Ajara Ayurvedic Beauty to help you facilitate this treatment!

What exactly IS Shirodhara?

Shirodhara is a form of therapy that involves gently pouring various liquids over the forehead for relaxation purposes. Think of it as a massage for the mind! The term actually stems from the sanskirt words shiro, which means head and dhara, which means flow. Aside from completely relaxing your client, this therapeutic process is also said to rejuvenate the face, as well as relieve anxiety, depression, and insomnia through natural serotonin, dopamine, and melatonin release. It can also help synchronize alpha brain waves, enhancing blood circulation to the brain to improve mental clarity. Now that's my type of treatment!

And how is this all even possible?! Take a look below at our various Ayurveda products and see how they work:



To get started, check out the Copper Shirodhara Stand, which comes complete with everything you need to introduce your spa to this new treatment! This is the traditional system for giving a shirodhara. Fully hands on, the flow of oil comes from the copper pot, onto the person's third eye, down the hair and vinyl strip, and into the warming pan, where the flow continues with the shirodhara therapist re-pouring the warmed oil back into the copper vessel. While this method requires skill and an ability to quiet one's own mind, it is the most energetically positive way to give a shirodhara treatment.
This treatment requires oil, so to get started, this all natural Shirodhara Oil is your best bet. The natural conditioners from organic sesame and sunflower oil, as well as several herbs to calm the senses, make this oil perfect for a deeply soothing treatment.
To complete your treatment, you are definitely going to need a pair of these gloves! These Raw Silk Garshana Gloves are washable and reusable, and come in a handy carrying pouch. Perfect for your treatment!
Is your spa completely brand new to this treatment? Educate your workers on this ancient healing method with this informative Ayurvedic Spa Treatments DVD. It is great for teaching your technicians on how to evaluate their clients and perform a variety of Ayurvedic treatments!

What's the Key to Your Client’s Heart this Valentine's Day?...A Heart-Shaped Himalayan Salt Stone Massage!

The enchanting Heart-Shaped Himalayan Salt Massage Stone set, will bring charm to any spa menu this February. The origination of these stones is what makes them so intriguing. The Salt crystals are from an ancient primal sea beneath the Himalayan Mountains, that are hand-carved into heart-shaped massage stones that work gently to soothe away an accumulation of stress, tension and pollutants ....(think we could all use that right about now!).

The Heart-Shaped Himalayan Salt Massage Stones are an excellent tool to use during any massage treatment for their powerful healing capabilities. The stones have a therapeutic effect when used warm or cold, but when warmed, the negative ion potential of the stone is ignited and more powerful.
