Why Wait Til Valentines Day To Offer Chocolate?

Everyone focuses on chocolate treatments for Valentines Day, chocolate products fly off the shelves every January. How about the rest of the year?

People love chocolate, any time of year! If you put a basket of chocolates on the reception counter, clients will eat it. Why not offer End-of-the-Year Chocolate Guilty Pleasure treatments?

Here is a body treatment that will leave your clients feeling like they jumped into a decadent pool of warm melty chocolate!

For the scrub:
In a large rubber bowl, mix 1/4 cup of dead sea salt with 1/4 cup of chocolate mint or chocolate cake oil. After mixing well, place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabi or large stainless bowl filled with hot water.



For the wrap:
In a medium rubber bowl, blend 5 tablespoons of white clay powder with 4 teaspoons of aloe gel.
Add in 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder and 2 teaspoons of water, mix well. If this seems to dry, add a little more water until it can be applied in a thin layer. Keep the bowl warm until ready to use.

Perform the body treatment as you normally would, including any add on services like dry brushing, Eco Fin, or even a facial mask!

Overstock On Chocolate? May Has You Covered!

Have some left over chocolate products from you Valentine's menu? It doesn't have to go to waste! May 1st is National Chocolate Parfait Day! This is a perfect chance to use up any chocolate in a one day sale!

You could take it a step farther and turn it into a type of client appreciation day. Focusing on all things chocolate, from the treatments to chocolate snacks and/or drinks to celebrate! You can even throw in a complimentary chocolate Eco Fin treatment with any service! A great way to introduce and have clients fall in love with a service they may have otherwise never tried!

Even if you don't have chocolate left over, you still have time to stock up on chocolate masks, scrubs, and oils with plenty of time to advertise the special day!

Coconut Certified Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil for Face, Body & Hair - from unscented to scented, this is one of the hottest retail lines!

Hot & Spicy Scrub!

Just in time for the cooler fall weather, here's a treatment recipe to indulge your client's senses!

Hot & Spicy Scrub 
(I'm confident you'll have a more creative name!)

In a rubber mixing bowl, mix 1/4 cup Sucanat Sugar with 1/2 teaspoon of  Ginger Root Powder. Add 6 teaspoons of Grapeseed Oil and 6 drops of cinnamon essential oil and mix well. Place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or a large stainless bowl of how water.

Start off the treatment with dry brushing (include it in the price of the treatment, or offer it as an add-on beneficial treatment!)  and apply the scrub according to your regular protocol (don't forget to wrap the client in plastic wrap and cover with a thermal blanket to increase the effects!). Leave on for about 15 - 20 minutes. This is the perfect time for an add-on scalp massage! Little touches like an herbal eye pack or cool pack will stand out to your clients as well. Remove the blankets and sheeting and have the client shower if you do not yet have a Vichy shower. You can also use warm damp towels and a spray bottle to remove.

Be sure to have some hot apple cider or tea on hand to complete the experience!

New Year's Exclusive Menu

The end of the year is running at full speed towards us, however you still have time to wow your clients with a New Year Special.

New Year's is all about celebration, excitement and fun, why not infuse those things into your menu? People go all out this time of year so, offer a special exclusive treatment - for all of your clients (whether you choose to discount it is up to you!). Bringing one treatment into focus as your New Year's Exclusive may be all it takes to get clients to try something new, or to treat themselves to something special.

From 24 karat gold masks and caviar facials to "New Year, New You" packages that include microdermabrasion, peels, body wraps (desert mineral detox scrub followed by this hydrating body mask finished with Alchimie Forever Intensely Nourishing Cream is phenomenal for healing dry winter skin!), and more!

How about a super facial to wow your clients and drastically increase profits, using something like the GeneO+ 3-in-1 or  AquaBella™ Abrasion-Free Hydra Peeling Liquid Facial System? One of a kind treatments are always a big hit this time of year - perfect for selling packages!

I do suggest placing your order asap to ensure you have everything in time!

Goodbye Dull Dry Skin, Hello Beach Ready Glow!

Everyone is rushing to their spas/wellness centers to get rid of their dull, dry winter skin. The rush on hydrating and brightening products are in full swing!  Here is an awesome menu idea to freshen up your Spring body treatments! This body wrap will help smooth, exfoliate and hydrate the skin while the relaxing their cares away!

Spring Hydrating Body Wrap (I'm sure you're more creative at treatments names that will fit in with your regular menu!)

You may wish to prepare this before the client comes in to maximize time.

Prep:

Body Wrap:

Combine 4T of Sedona Mud Powder, 1T of Egg White Powder and 2t of Clove Powder  in a large rubber mixing bowl.  Add in 6T of water and stir until a paste like consistency.

Add in 15 drops of Sweet Orange Pure Essential Oil  (if you have a client who does not like orange scents or for male clients, try using 5-10 drops spearmint or 5-7 drops cedarwood essential oil instead). Mix in 3T of Organic Corn Meal and mix well (the cornmeal may soak up the liquid once it sits, you can add more water if it is too dry. If the mix becomes to wet, you can add in more of the Sedona Mud Powder).

Place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or even in a stainless steel bowl filled with hot water to warm the mixture is warm and feels luxurious when applied.

Moisturizer:

In a medium rubber mixing bowl, mix 2T of Whipped Shea Butter with 5 drops Sweet Orange Pure Essential Oil (again you can substitute 5-10 drops spearmint or 5-7 drops cedarwood essential oil)


Dry brushing the client prior to the body wrap is an excellent way to start if you don't already begin that way. Once you have prepped as you normally do for wraps, check the temperature of the warmed mixture to be sure it is at a comfortable temperature before applying. Apply the mask as usual, being sure to pay extra attention to extra dry areas, especially feet, heels,knees and elbows. Once the mask has been applied, wrap the client in plastic sheeting followed by a thermal blanket. Leave on for approximately 15-20 minutes ---now is a great time for add on services like scalp massage! Remove the mask as you normally do and follow with the moisturizer!

Sleeping Beauty

It's no secret that the best and most natural way to enhance your beauty happens at night: beauty sleep!

There's good reason as to why's it's called beauty sleep. While you're at rest, your body is working hard to repair and restore your body. How does this benefit your beauty? Your skin cells turnover and heal, resulting in glowing skin and healthier hair. 

Do you offer your clients products for overnight use? Not sure where to begin? There are many ways to enhance your customers' already natural beauty regimen of a good night's rest! See below for the products we recommend here at Pure Spa Direct:



Eyes

Our eye cream from Oxygen Botanicals is perfect for your clients to use at night. Its key ingredients include Japanese Green Tea Extract, Chamomile Extract, Sweet Almond Oil, and Vitamin A, which are perfect for maintaining skin elasticity around the delicate areas of the eyes. With brighter, moisturized skin around the eyes, your clients will look more awake and beautiful! This cream can also minimize fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles. Perfect for AM use as well!





Body

Hands and feet are often neglected in an overnight routine, considering they are a couple our most used body parts! It is essential to keep them moisturized for beautifying and anti-aging purposes. Our Intensive Age Defying Hydrating Hand and Foot Cream by June Jacobs Spa Collection is a great cream for your customers to add to their nightly moisturizing routine. They are perfect for retailing (bonus points for being paraban free)!






Hair

An easy way to keep your customers' hair moisturized and soft is to use a leave in conditioner at night. Our Onesta Quench Leave-In Conditioner is made with all natural ingredients and certified organic extracts of linden, goldenseal, and orchid. Have them apply this to dry hair at night, and throw over a hair cap for a simple and easy overnight conditioning treatment!

Mindful Health Practices

I just read an article on a study done by the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, on how mindful meditation programs help reduce depression, anxiety and pain. Many people think of meditation as a means to relax, unwind or balance out in some aspect. It's becoming more and more popular in the practice of helping clients with pain issues.

Mindful meditation programs can be incorporated to many different fields in this great industry. If you don't already have a meditation room set up, you can offer meditation classes on certain days and block out a room for that purpose. You can lead group sessions literally anywhere in your office that you can comfortably fit people.

The beauty is that aside from someone to lead the meditations and participants, you don't need to spend an arm and a leg on products to make it effective.

Here are some great cost effective items to get you started:

Music:
Shakuhachi Meditation Music 2 CD Set 
Meditation CD
Global Journey Meditation CD by Global Journey UK
Inner Balance CD by Tron Syversen


General Ambiance Ideas:
Salt Lamps
Yoga Mats- always comfy for sitting or lying meditations
Tibetan Singing Bowls
Citrine Druse with Wood Base
Various Buddha Items

The most amazing product you can get to create a truly unique experience for your clients:

Scent Linq Professional Scent Diffusion System - for Reception Areas, Lobbies, Relaxation Rooms and other Larger Open Indoor Spaces by Scent Linq
This may be one of the best products to come along. Forget essential oil diffusers, candles, plug ins or sprays (and it's more cost effective!)...you can fill any space with scents created by master perfumers from Europe. Hand picked for the spa industry, the scents are not perfumes or oils but essences. Think about your own experiences with scent memory and take a look at how this product can help create an undeniable link between your clients and your business.

Treat Your Skin With Sea Salts!!


Are you offering sea salts to your clients?!! If not, take a look at all these amazing benefits they offer which will have you wondering why you waited so long!!

Bath sea salts are very high natural mineral contents, including magnesium, potassium, calcium, bromine, sodium, and chloride.  These nutrients all consist of health benefits that will help promote healthy-looking, youthful skin.

Your clients will notice a difference in their skin tone:
After regular use your clients will notice their skin softer and firmer.  The magnesium found in sea salt can help eliminate fluid retention, slow down aging and calm the nervous system. The grainy texture of sea salts assist in removing dull dead skin cells to reveal a fresher, newer layer of skin.


Cleaner Pores:
One of the main components of sea salts is calcium, which helps to prevent water retention and clogged pores, as well as strengthens bones and nails. The potassium in sea salts helps to energize the skin and balance skin moisture, while sodium assists in lymphatic fluid balance.

Increased Blood Circulation:
Sea salts are alkaline-based and help to de-acidify the body and help raise pH levels. This can also assist in balancing blood sugar levels and reduce the aging rate.

Muscle Relief:
The bromide found in sea salts can help relax muscles and ease muscle stiffness. Saltwater is a common treatment for muscle aches and pains, because it naturally penetrates the pores, enters into the bloodstream and tissues, and removes lactic acid accumulations, one of the roots of post-exercise pain.

Some of the internal benefits your clients will find from sea salt soaks include:
-Reducing levels of stress
-Dealing with Insomnia
-Increasing circulation
-Expelling toxins from the body

Please take a look below at some of the sea salts we sell at Pure Spa Direct:
