Oh Honey, Honey

Honey is unlike any other ingredient in nature and has yet to be synthesized in a chemistry lab! This rich, wonderfully scented Midnight Honey Bath and Beauty Oil is an inspired preparation --true, elegant, and complex in its ability to deeply condition the skin, while restoring suppleness and unleashing the senses.

NEW! Farmaesthetics Bath and Beauty Oil - Midnight Honey / 7 oz.

INSPIRATION:
Nature's most mysterious elixir... honey is unlike any other ingredient in nature and has yet to be synthesized in a chemistry lab! Farmaesthetics' richly round, darkly-scented Midnight Honey Bath and Beauty Oil, is an inspired preparation – true, elegant, and complex in its ability to deeply condition the skin, while restoring suppleness and unleashing the senses. Use in massage, bath, shower, or as a beauty oil for spot treating dry or patchy areas of skin. Apply after bathing when body is still damp, to wrap the skin in rich, warm moisture. (For external use only even though it smells good enough to eat!)

Arnica:
Arnica is highly regarded in herbalism for its ability to diminish bruising and swelling in skin tissue. Arnica has a complex chemistry, but simply put, the herb works to affect the blood vessels so that there is rapid reduction of inflammation, the kind associated with injured tissue. A capful used in external massage or in a warm bath soak, is a simple, effective way to introduce Arnica into the system, while at the same time conditioning the skin & improving circulation. Dermatologists are now recognizing the many benefits of Arnica for patients following laser or plastic surgery.

Applications & Benefits:
Luscious, herbal massage oil for moisturizing and conditioning the whole body complexion.
Luxurious and emollient when used in the bath or applied after shower as body oil.
Great for use in full body massage, having lots of "slip" for easy application and a heady honey scent that releases with friction of massage.
Best applied on damp, warm skin.
Soy has the added benefits of phytoestrogens, said to have balancing effects on irregular hormonal activities.

AS USED IN PROFESSIONAL TREATMENTS:

  • Use as a deep conditioning massage oil for body.
  • Use in Farmaesthetics Cornmeal Scrub treatments.
  • Use in bath to release emollient benefits of soy oil and honey absolute.

Key Ingredients:
Soy Oil: One of the high-grade, cosmetic grade carrier oils. Especially chosen for its softening, uncomplicated chemistry... light enough for massage, yet safe for those with nut allergies. Very emollient and soothing to the skin.
Honey Absolute: Whether in absolute form, used for its rich round scent to "perfume" preparations, or used in its whole form to soften and soothe the skin, honey is nature's most mysterious ingredient. It holds constituents that help heal the skin, protect against infection, and soften and even the complexion to achieve a healthy "glow".
Vitamin E: Used to stabilize all of Farmaesthetics natural non-aqueous formulations. Benefits in restoring skin's elasticity. Assists in healing scars and preventing stretch marks in skin that is being stretched from pregnancy or weight gain.
Ingredients:
Sweet soy oil*, honey absolute and vitamin E (certified organic ingredients*)

Farmaesthetics products are 100% natural, contain certified organic ingredients as indicated, are hypo-allergenic, non-irritating & dermatological tested, with a certified shelf-life of 2 years from the date of opening. No animal testing.

Improve Circulation This Winter with Arnica

Poor circulation is common during the cold winter months, and I'm sure many of your clients complain about it this time of year. Are you looking for more ways to take this common complaint into consideration at your spa this winter? While the average massage service can most certainly help, you can take it one step further by incorporating the herb arnica into your massage treatments. According to a recent article I read, arnica works with the body’s own system and helps to dispose of waste as well as increase circulation. In order for your clients to receive the maximum benefit from arnica, all you need to do is apply a small amount, about one or two drops of concentrated oil, to the desired area, followed by massage with your favorite cream. We have arnica oil here at Pure Spa Direct, as well as massage creams! Click here to browse our arnica collection, and help keep your clients' circulation balanced this winter!

Reduce Sore Muscles Using Arnica With Massage Therapy

With winter quickly approaching, the snow is sure to follow sooner than many would like. With snow comes the daunting task of shoveling and the muscle pain and stiffness that come with it.

You may hear a client in your office, salon or spa complaining of aches and pains from recent shoveling, it's the perfect opportunity to offer them a winter relief massage.

One of my favorite products to use during  is arnica oil. Arnica oil  is made from the arnica plant and has been found to be beneficial in treating muscle aches, sprains and sore muscles.

You can purchase an arnica massage lotion such as the one I use most: Lotus Touch Arnica Massage Lotion. My clients ask for this lotion every time they've been shoveling and I have had great results using it to reduce muscle pain and inflammation.

If you prefer working with oils then I recommend trying the Therapro Arnica Massage Oils which are available in sizes from 2 oz up to 16 oz.


Whichever medium you prefer working with, I highly recommend adding an arnica product into your winter arsenal  your clients will be looking forward to seeing you even more after the pesky snow storms!
