The Calming Scent of Basil


Basil isn't just for cooking! When in oil form, basil actually has a multitude of uses. It is commonly used to reduce anxiety, assist with clear breathing, act as a cooling agent on the skin, and can even be used for respiratory, muscular, and joint support. It is said to be the oil of renewal!

We have a variety of products at Pure Spa Direct containing this lovely herb! You can incorporate basil into almost all of your spa services such as massages, and even into your manicure and pedicure services! Check out some of our basil products below!

As a self-proclaimed candle aficionado, I am constantly seeking out the best smelling, most cutting edge candles out on the market. Now that autumn is here, I am obsessing over our Timberwick Fireplace Crackle Soy Candles that we have here at Pure Spa Direct! I don't live in the woods, but these candles produce a fire crackle sound when lit. How cool is that?! 

Is your spa prepped for the upcoming colder months? Why not make it cozier with these candles? They are perfect to put in your waiting area to make your clients feel at home and warmed up while they're waiting for their treatment. You can also retail them to your clients, as I'm sure they will be asking you where you got them from! They come in 3 deliciously amazing scents:

Honey Spice: Comforting blend of honey, anise, clove and a touch of lemon.

Amber and Cedar: Sultry amber combined with woodsy cedarwood and fruity currant.

Lavender Citrus: Calming lavender blended with violet, a touch of warm vanilla and fresh citrus.

Not sure which scent to try? I highly recommend you check out the "Try Me" Package" which comes with all three scents. I guarantee you (and your clients) will love them all!

Crystal Meditation: Selenite

I absolutely love the healing power of crystals and their magical energy. My current favorite is Selenite. They are white in color, and named after the Greek goddess of the moon, Selene. This beautiful crystal is said to remove energy blocks within a room which can bring a sense of tranquility to your spa. 

If you're looking to add new healing products to your spa, or even new, unique items to retail, we have a variety of Selenite products to choose from! If you're looking to enhance your spa services, try our Selenite Crystal Wand Set. This unique wand is perfect for deep tissue and acupressure modalities. It can also be used in rolling techniques or for heat therapy! Selenite stones can be warmed with dry heat or used at room temperature. This will certainly relax your clients and bring a great energy to the room during the spa service!


For space and energy clearing, you can also burn white candles in our Selenite Natural Candleholder. When lit up, it almost looks like liquid light! Your clients will be impressed by their beauty as well as the sense of serenity they bring. Check out all of our Selenite products here!

It's Common Scents...First Impressions Are Everything!

When you enter a room, what's the first thing you notice? It's usually the scent. According to an article I read, smell is the most sensitive of the senses. People can remember smells with 65% accuracy after a year, while visual recall is about 50% after three months. Crazy how that works, right! If you really want your spa to stand out, why not liven up your client's senses with room spray. Not sure where to begin? We have a great light called Pure Light that carries organic room sprays. You can even use them on linens to freshen up your sheets! Make your rooms memorable by having a different scent in each room! Check out my top 3 scents below:



Rainforest is a beautiful, sweet earthy scent, beginning with a base of European black pine and wild berries. Woody tonka bean and cedarwood gently unfold with a touch of rose and a sprinkle of cinnamon to complete this unique all-natural harmony. It's a great scent for fall which is rapidly approaching!










Aloha is a sumptuous blend of tropical mojo. Sun-drenched fruits and flowers create an ambiance of warmth with this aromatic masterpiece. This scent might immediately make your clients feel like their on a vacation in the tropics!











Zen Garden is smooth and sophisticated with a delicate blend of aloe and green tea. Make your clients feel like they're in a relaxing Japanese Garden with this spray!





Pure Light also has candles in the same scents that are 100% natural and made with an exclusive blend of certified organic coconut wax, pure essential oils, and a textile grade cotton wick. They’re biodegradable, soot-free, clean burning, and hand poured in the USA! Make your clients remember your spa by its scent with these lovely, natural aromas.

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!

Not Just A Candle! Earthly Body Candles Work Triple Time

Are you in need of new candles for your spa? How about some massage oils, as well? Maybe you need to replenish your moisturizers, too. In need of all three?! I have just the product for your spa! I'm a huge fan of candles, and was excited to see that we have candles that aren't just meant for lightening and scent.

Our Earthly Body Candles TRIPLE as a candle, massage oil, and even moisturizer! That's my type of product! The best part is they come in a variety of delicious scents (Dreamsicle is my favorite)! These 100% soy based natural candles are environmentally friendly and petroleum free, as well as vegan. The best part is they last 50% longer than your traditional wax candles. 

How do they work as a massage lotion and moisturizer, you ask? It's actually quite simple: A tiny spoon is included inside, and you pour the liquid that forms within the candle once it burns, into the spoon and onto your hand. While it may seen awkward to pour hot candle wax onto your body, please keep in mind that soy wax burns much cooler than paraffin wax. In fact, this soy candle with essential oils — including hemp seed oil — burns at only 2 degrees warmer than your body temperature (fun fact)!



Click here to see all of our Earthly Body Candles. They also make great retail products - I guarantee your clients will love them :)

Simple Addition for a Personalized, Seasonal Manicure Experience!

There are so many ways to add little seasonal touches to your spa without feeling like you are overdoing it. You can do this by simply changing the scents of products you would normally use during your services or even retailing some seasonal scented items.

A cranberry scented cuticle oil can be added right into your everyday manicures to give your clients a fall feeling without bombarding them with pumpkin, cranberry, apple, etc. The Aromatherapy Scented Cuticle Oil - Cranberry / 2.5 oz. by Star Nail nourishes cuticles and nails with vitamin-rich blends. Its also non-greasy and very light. Your clients will love the cranberry scent.

If they aren't into cranberry, it is also available in Vanilla Berry for another option to personalize the manicure experience! These are also really great for retailing in your salon as well.

Increase Your Earnings at Your Massage Business by Retailing!

 I have just recently found out that massage accounts for 70% of services provided at spas. 70% is a lot! Knowing that most of your spa clients come to the spa for massage services, we can use this information to increase your earnings! It is not common for massage therapists to retail to their clients, but it should be!

If you are using products that you know, love, and trust, then you should have no problem selling them to your clients. Some examples of items you can offer your clients are essential oils, Bio-Freeze, aromatherapy candles, hot/cold packs, lotions...the list can go on. Body care should definitely be part of your retail display along with the various skin care items.

A great way to inform your client of products that you can offer them is to use them in the services and educate the client on the use of the product as well. The more knowledgeable you are about your retail products, the easier it will be to offer to your clients, which leads to increased profits for your business!

Great Retail Items for Massage:
Essential Oils
Candles
Biofreeze
Boca Terry Robes
Hot & Cold Packs

Creating An Air of Luxury In Your Spa


When I walk into a spa or salon one of the first things I notice, aside from the decor and overall feel of the space, is how it smells. Does it smell stale or have no scent at all? Nothing enhances a client's experience like walking into a place that smells heavenly. It adds to the client's experience and can essentially make or break their mood from the start. If anything sets them off negatively when they walk in, their perception of the service they are getting can be affected.

The  Timberwick Fireplace Crackle Soy Candles are phenomenal for creating a serene and peaceful ambiance in your reception area and your treatment rooms.

The different scents available allow you to customize the candle to certain treatments or moods.

My personal favorites are the amber and cedar and lavender citrus. If your unsure of what scent will fit your style there is also the try me pack so you can experience all the possibilities.

If scents aren't your thing or you're concerned about some clients not liking a particular scent you can still take advantage of the relaxing benefits of candles! Have you noticed how many people get lost staring into a fireplace? Candles can produce the same effect!

Some great unscented candles to try include:

 Candle - Gem Tone Unscented Jar - Violet 11 oz. by Aloha Bay / 11 oz.
These candles also come in white, indigo , red , yellow, orange and green to match your rooms!

If you're concerned about having a flame for safety reasons you can always go with flame-less candles such as:
 Flameless Wax Candle / 6" x 3.25" Round / Unscented / White Color

 Flameless Candle / 4" White with Purple Flowers / Unscented by Candle Impressions by Candle Impressions 

A small investment like this can significantly enhance your clients experience and also provide an opportunity to retail the candles as well!

We Didn't Start the Fire....Because We Went FLAMELESS!

Do you love how your treatment room looks when it is bathed in candlelight, but worried about the safety of candles? Candle light is so soothing, and a lot of spas like to light candles for the atmosphere it creates. The downside is having an open flame anywhere is taking a risk, especially in a room where you are performing a treatment on a client. So what to do?


Flame-less candles are the best of both worlds! These battery-powered candles flicker like real candles, and even come scented, just like real wax candles, but without the worry of a fire! Pure Spa Direct offers a number of flame-less candle options, with either disposable batteries or rechargeable batteries. If you are a large spa, and you like the beauty of flickering candlelight in every room, check out our Rechargeable Flame-less Tea Light Candles, which come with a totally cool recharging station!

So, go ahead and bathe your space in candlelight without the worry!
