Money With Milk And Honey!

September is National Honey Month! That makes now the perfect time to start thinking about and bringing in products to cash in (literally!) on treatments that focus on honey. Here is a great body treatment that generally sells for $100-125 and costs you less than $5.00 per treatment - my type of math!

Milk & Honey Body Treatment - this is excellent for moisturizing dehydrated skin, stress relief, calming of the skin and more!

In a rubber mixing bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of honey powder with 1 tablespoon of coconut powder and mix well. Add in 2 drops each of chamomile essential oil and jasmine essential oil. Mix well and place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or stainless steel bowl filled with hot water.  Apply the scrub as you normally perform your body treatments.

If you have a hydrotherapy tub, after removing the scrub is an excellent time for a soak! Mix 1 tablespoon of buttermilk powder to 2 cups of hot water followed by 5 drops of chamomile essential oil. When filling the hydrotherapy tub, tilt the bowl slightly, hold under the faucet and slowly pour the mixture into the tub (go slow to avoid clumping!)

After the scrub and soak, finish off with this moisturizer to lock in all of the wonderful moisture!

Mix 2 teaspoons of wheatgerm oil with 2 drops of chamomile essential oil. Massage the oil into the skin and wipe off any excess oil to finish.

You can create full body packages centered around honey as well! You can use things like Cuccio Naturale Lyte Ultra-Sheer Body Butter - Honey & Soy Milk in nail services and massage!

Be sure to have retail items to go with the treatments, here are some client favorites:

Cuccio Naturale Butter Babies Display Tower Milk & Honey
Soy Crackle Candle - Honey Spice
Cuccio Naturalé Milk & Honey Daily Skin Polisher
Milk & Honey Aqua Leaves
CUCCIO NATURALE Cuticle Conditioning Butter Sticks Milk & Honey


Don't forget to offer teas, honey and snacks!

Kashi TLC Chewy Granola Bars, Honey Almond Flax
Smucker's Honey, Single Serving Packs

Hydrating, Cellulite-Busting Chocolate Body Treat!

Are you noticing more and more clients coming in these days with dry or dehydrated skin? All the fun beach trips, yard work and other outdoor summer activities are taking a toll on their skin. Between the sun, sweat, products and general dirt, the skin needs some detoxing and hydrating! Here is a great recipe for a chocolate body treatment that not only hydrates the skin, but also may help reduce the appearance of cellulite!

It's a great idea to have the scrub and mousse prepared shortly before the client arrives to save time and get them warm so it's extra luxurious!

Here are the recipes to prepare:

Chocolate Mint Salt Scrub. 
In a large mixing bowl, combine dead sea salt and chocolate mint oil (you can use any chocolate oil you prefer!) so they are blended well. Place the mixing bowl into a bowl of warm water to warm the scrub. 

Chocolate Body Mousse
In large mixing bowl, combine white clay powder with aloe vera gel and blend well. Add in cocoa powder and water, and mix until there are no clumps. If the mousse seems dry, add water slowly until it's a thin smooth mixture you can easily apply to the body. Place the mixing bowl into a bowl of warm water to warm the mousse.

Start off by dry brushing the client's skin to increase circulation and prepare the skin for the treatment.

After dry brushing, apply the chocolate body scrub to the client's entire body as you normally would apply a scrub. If you don't yet have a wet room with a vichy shower, gently remove the scrub with warm towels or have the client shower if you have on available. 

Next, apply the chocolate body mousse in a thin later to the client's skin as you would any other body wrap. Once the client's skin is covered with the mousse, wrap with plastic wrap and cover with a thermal blanket. Leave the client wrapped for about 15-20 minutes to allow the mousse to absorb into the skin. Now is a great time for any add on services like a scalp or facial massage!

Remove the blanket, plastic and remove the chocolate mousse as you normally remove body wraps. Allow the client to shower if you have the ability, or dry brush the skin and remove the mousse with warm towels.

You can finish with a massage (add on profit!) or simply by applying Caribbean Smoothie Hydrating + Anti-Aging Body Cream by Extended Vacation to the entire body to lock in all that lovely hydration!

Boost the chocolate indulgence by offering little chocolate treats or having chocolate infused drinks on hand to offer the client!

Ultrasonic Cavitation: The Ultimate Spa Toning Treatment

While watching TV on my downtime, I can't help but notice the surge in gym commercials and body fitness infomercials offering dream results with the use of their products. Not only do these infomercials offer to help people lose weight, but more importantly, tone their bodies. This is especially important as we have entered Resort and Pre-Beach season.

Many-a-time I have been
tempted to to make 3 easy payments of $39.95 in the hopes of firming and toning my butt, hips and thighs. The one major drawback to those products is the effort required to achieve results that are not guaranteed. Liposuction is another option, but few people can afford the expense or recovery downtime. But what if you were able to offer your clients a relaxing treatment in your spa that should yield results in just a few short treatments?

A new slimming and toning treatment that is taking the esthetics world by storm is Ultrasonic Cavitation. Considered to be non-surgical liposuction, this groundbreaking treatment specifically targets and liquefies the cellulite fat cells that even the most strenuous workouts cannot combat.

To understand how Ultrasonic Cavitation works, it is important to first know the characteristics of Cellulite. No matter the size of women, whether skinny or curvy, 80-90% of us experience cellulite, as it is mainly based upon our genetics. Fatty cells become deposited and trapped in an irregular fashion between tough collagen fibers and therefore produce the rippled effect. People with thinner skin, or those who have lost a significant amount of weight may actually see in increase in the amount of cellulite on their bodies.

So how is Ultrasonic Cavitation different?

Many current treatments for cellulite involve squeezing, pushing and suctioning the cellulite-affected areas - thus redistributing the fat cells rather than eliminating them. Cavitation is different in that it works to turn the fat into liquid, which is then eliminated from the body via urine. By placing the ultrasound handles on the affected areas and massaging them against the skin, bubbles are formed in the fat cells, which then emulsifies them. Once the fat becomes a liquid, it is then able to be expelled.

A standard procedure typically takes about 30 minutes, with some results being seen after as little as 1-3 treatments. A total of 10-12 treatments over the course of 40-48 days is recommended for your clients to achieve optimal results. It takes about 72 hours for the fat from each treatment to be expelled from the body, so it is suggested that treatments are scheduled every four days. It is also important to remind your clients to eat well and to drink at least a quart and a half before and after the procedure.

Ultrasonic Cavitation is an up-and-coming toning treatment that has the
ability to garner you as a spa owner some nice profits. From the cost of the treatment to the suggested retail products, you can seriously boost your bottom line.

Mud, Mud and Moor Mud - Part 2!!

So next up in our Mud Series is the namesake of this blog - Hungarian Moor Wellness Mud. This particular mud has a plethora of features that separate it from the rest of the pack including the fact it is one of the oldest spa treatments ever recorded and has been used in European spas since the 1800s.

Here is a little back history on the Hungarian Moor Mud: Praised and worshiped for its detoxifying effects for over 2000 years(!), Moor mud is actually Peat Moss from the bogs of Eastern Europe. Unlike other muds that are largely comprised of clay and sand, Moor mud is almost entirely made of residual herbs, flowers and grasses from 10,000 years ago. Rather than decaying, those organic products worked together to create a super-powered paste chock-filled with humic acids, fulvic acids, minerals, trace elements, vitamins, amino acids, plant hormones and fatty acids.

Science lessons are fun and all, but what does this mean for you and your clients? By implementing Moor Mud into your services, you can offer you clients one of the oldest, yet most advanced treatments to help with cellulite, anti-aging, anti-inflammation, detoxification and muscular relaxation. Due to its composition, Moor Mud can be used not only as a wrap treatment but also in hydrotherapy baths. Because it contains the least amount of clay in comparison to all other mud treatments, you do not have to worry about Moor mud clogging your drains because it dissolves completely. Add Hungarian Wellness Moor Mud to your treatment menu today!

*Insider Tip* Since Moor Mud is not the nicest smelling product you can put on your clients, I recommend adding a few drops of essential oil to make the experience more pleasant. Since Moor Mud is earthy by nature, I recommend using an earthy/woodsy essential oil as well, such as Pine Essential Oil or Frankincense Essential Oil.
