The Secret Power Of Balms!

What do you associate a balm with? Lying on a beach or yacht somewhere exotic, not a cloud in the sky with a balmy breeze? Sounds good to me! I'm also a fan of skin balms, they can be an incredible multi-tool.

Many balms are made from natural product like the Green & Good balms by Eco Fin. A favorite of technicians and clients alike, Alchimie Forever has two balms to love. Formulated by a Swiss dermatologist the line is also cruelty free and vegan friendly - dermatologist formulated, tested and kind to our animal friends - what a combo from a company!

Moor Spa has you covered with a balm from your eyes and lips, to a soothing tension balm, and a lot in between!

From muscle pain relief and skin soothing to beard care and under eye lightening, balms are easy to use and effective!

Amazing Ampoules by Rosa Graf

If you are not using ampoules, you are missing out on some serious profit and some serious results!


Each Rosa Graf bottle has up to 15-20 treatments! The bottles are filled with a concentrated complex of active ingredients. Massage in with hand, use with equipment, or a steamer. Ampoules product phenomenal results when used prior to a targeted mask.

Hyaluronic Acid -This highly concentrated ampoule helps soften your clients' skin. Hyaluronic acid optimizes moisture balance while aloe, panthenol, and allantoin protect.

Caviar - It contains concentrated caviar extract to stabilize and improve the skin’s own repair mechanism and to treat existing atrophies. Caviar extract is rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals.

Cacao Ampoule -This ampoule is excellent for moisturizing the skin.

Repair -This ampoule promotes the skin’s own regeneration (e.g., from sun exposure or mature skin). It contains a ribonucleic complex combined with a wheat hydrolysate to increase the ability of the skin to store moisture, helping skin look and feel smoother.

Clearing - This ampoule is used for the treatment of blemished skin, which tends to form comedones, papulae, and pimples. The clearing concentrate should be used directly after thorough cleansing or after deep cleaning.

Deep Cleansing - This ampoule causes a change in the sebaceous structure and softens comedones. It contains iso-fatty acid esters in combination with ethoxylated fatty acid esters.

Oxygenating - This ampoule is perfect for tired, dull pale skin. It stimulates cell-respiration to increase the presence of oxygen in the cells.

Effecting - This formula combats the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It contains plant peptides, which helps firm and tone the skin.

Collastin- This concentrate is great for skin prone to atrophies. It stimulates the skin’s own immune system, not only to prevent environmentally induced aging but also softens existing lines. Amino acids increase the skin’s capacity to store moisture.

Moisture - Great for dry skin conditions and keratosis. It reliably reduces deficits in the moisture balance. The active ingredient includes black cohosh, which has a phytohormonal effect and redresses the skin’s moisture balance, and urea.

Couperose - This ampoule is perfect for skin that exhibits couperose, fine red-blue thread veins that can be seen through the skin. Couperose is usually visible on the cheeks and around the nose.

Calming - This ampoule is effective on irritated skin (e.g., excessive sun exposure, overreaction after exfoliation, or heat treatment). It contains sweet almond protein and panthenol for soothing.

Q10 - This ampoule is an innovative emulsion-based concentrate. It contains Q 10, which helps prevent environmentally induced skin aging.

Pro tip: Take a before and after photo. Ampoules give immediate results, make sure your client can see the difference only 1 treatment makes!

Flu Facials?

It's no secret the flu has been rampant this year, along with some strong flu like illnesses going around. I've seen a few spas start to incorporate "Flu Facials" the last few weeks to help ease any lingering suffering.

If you have never had the flu, I commend your immune system! If you have had the flu, you know the muscle ache and facial pain from congestion. Once your client is on the road to recovery and back out in the world, a relaxing and clearing facial may sound heavenly!

Using products that are calming, cooling or refreshing starting with your cleanser, paying extra attention to facial pressure points. June Jacobs has a range of health driven products that would be perfect!

Warm facial towels or just a warm towel over the eyes can make a world of difference! A gentle face or scalp massage with a clearing essential oil like eucalyptus, peppermint or lemongrass makes an excellent add on service!

Making sure your towels, linens and blankets are soft and cozy along with optional herbal packs and teas can be just the thing your post flu clients are desperately needing!

Here are the newest additions that may just breathe new life not only to your music collection, but to the overall vibe in the area!

Add A Little Om To Your Spa

The winter can be a stressful time for many people. Seasonal effective disorder (also known as SAD) is winter depression that I'm sure you see many of your clients struggle with during this time of year. A good way to uplift their spirits can definitely be with a calm and relaxing spa atmosphere. Looking for new, unique decor to add? We have a beautiful Om Offering Bowl that can be used to set the tone of your spa. Om is a mantra that is often chanted at the beginning and end of yoga sessions. This magical word is said to be both the sound of the creation of the universe, as well as the sound of silence. Om is usually chanted to calm the mind as well as create a peaceful setting. This offering bowl is sculpted of brass, leaving it with a beautiful red-gold finish both on its interior and exterior. The natural coloring is further amplified by the brass accents with which it is decorated, depicting ornamental scroll work encircling the rim and the base of the bowl, and the beautifully sculpted Om symbols that run along the exterior of the bowl. Bring some om to your spa, and into your client's mind set with this gorgeous, decorative piece!

A Natural Luxury: Consider Cedar Wood For Your Spa!

Whether you're just getting started on your business, or if you're looking to revamp your spa's decor, I can guarantee you'll fall in love with the look of our Cedar Wood Foot Soak Tub. Why have the same type of foot tub every other spa in town has when you can stand out with this beautiful, luxurious, yet affordable wooden tub? Why cedar wood, you ask? I'll explain!

To start, cedar wood is highly resistant to rot and decay, which makes it long-lasting and great to be used as a foot tub. Next, it's highly sustainable, renewable, and even biodegradable which makes it eco-friendly. Aesthetically speaking, it's a naturally beautiful type of wood and will add a warmth to your spa unlike any other foot tub! It's natural, unique look will most certainly make your business stand out.

Aside from the cedar wood foot tub, did you know that we also carry Cedar Wood Essential Oils, as well as a Cedar Verbana Scented Candle? When used in topical form, cedar wood has anti-inflammatory effects on certain conditions such as arthritis and pain. It can also help to tighten and tone muscles, skin, and even conditions like acne according to an article I read. It can also be used as a sedative as it has a calming effect. Yet another reason to bring the natural luxury of cedar wood into your spa!

Soothing Summer Body Treatment!

As we near the end of June, I've had quite a few conversations with clients gearing up for their summer menu options. Many have asked about body treatments for skin that has been overexposed to the sun. Aside from having quality sunscreen and lip protection to retail, here is a great body mask to help calm sun scorched skin.

Sun Skin Saver Body Mask
*this mask is soothing and hydrating to help calm and nourish skin that has been overexposed to the sun

In a rubber mixing bowl, mix 3T Kaolin powder, 1 T Buttermilk Powder and 1 T of honey powder until combines. Add in 2 T of Aloe Gel and mix well. Place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabi or in another bowl filled with warm water.

Prep the client as you normally do for body treatments and apply the mask using a brush or your hands starting at the feet. Make sure the temperature of the mix is not too hot so warm that it causes more pain to the already sensitive skin!

Leave the mask on for 20 minutes before removing. Follow up with your favorite hydrating lotion like the Alchimie Forever Daily Defense Cream SPF 23 or Alchimie Forever Kantic Calming Cream !

This soothing mask will have your clients sighing with relief!
