The majority of clients I've spoken with recently have been focusing on getting their clients ready to show their skin off this bathing suit season. The first benefit many are looking for in a product - hydration. They want to blast the skin full of moisture and moisture locking products.

Whether doing a specific menu item as their "Summer Spotlight Special" or designing a package treatment, check out the Hydrating Herbs by Amber Products. With ingredients such as strawberry leaves, sage, eucalyptus, lavender flower, and chamomile this not only helps heal dry, cracked skin it just feels good.

Jump start your June menu with a spotlight treatment designed to get your clients beach beautiful!

Essential Oils - With an Emphasis on Essential!

Ah, essential oils - probably one of my favorite spa products out there! But what makes them so great? I love how each individual oil can be used for various soothing and supposedly curative effects. While essential oils are "essential" in the sole reason that they contain the "essence" of the plant's fragrance of which they're derived from, it is important to note that different oils have different properties. Certain oils are essential for various types of aliments! Do you have enough essentials for all types of clients, especially those who receive deep tissue massages? If not, I've got you covered. See below for what I mean, and why these "essential" oils take on a whole new meaning!

Most your clients probably sit throughout the day and then cram their exercise into one quick session. This can cause excess strain on their muscles, causing spasms and inflammation. While massages definitely help to ease the pain, certain essential oils can facilitate healing as well according to an article I recently read.

Reduce Inflammation

We carry any essential oil you might need here at Pure Spa Direct. However, some are more popular than others due to their aroma and abilities to aid in soothing inflamed muscles. Peppermint is great for your clients with inflamed and overheated muscles, as it has a cooling effect. Rosemary also reduces inflammation due to its astringent properties. This can help stimulate circulation and increase blood flow to the muscles, bringing down inflammation. We have a variety of peppermint and rosemary essential oils to choose from!

Warm Muscles

While peppermint has a cooling effect, other oils have a heating effect. Juniper and ginger oils tend to warm overworked muscles. They contain natural analgesics which can help to block pain - perfect for your clients who are athletes and looking for a deep tissue massage!

Relax Muscles

Did you know that April is Stress Awareness Month? It's a good chances that your clients who are stressed out have tighter muscles. Both chamomile and lavender essential oils can help calm down your clients who are extra stressed and hold tension in their muscles. They are personally my favorite, as I love their scent.

Click here to see all of our essential oils, and stock up on what your missing to help your clients in need. They are also perfect for retailing to your clients after each session!

Stay Calm with Chamomile in Your Spa


As the time comes to transition from summer into fall, for some it can definately be a stressful time. Back to school, back to work, no more relaxing beach days, etc...things can get hectic! Its a time for some much-needed calming!

Chamomile calms the mind and eases fear, anxiety, anger, worries and tension during times of physical and emotional stress. Also, brings peace and patience and enhances overall feelings of calm and relaxation.

Chamomile is one of the longest used medicinal plants. It’s been used for centuries to calm and soothe the mind, body, and soul. Diffusing roman chamomile essential oil can combat depression, insomnia, and stress because of its calming abilities. When used in aromatherapy, it is able to relax and tone the nervous system and decrease tension and anxiety.

Both Roman and German chamomile have excellent calming properties, but Roman chamomile is more effective for irritation, impatience, and has great value in treating PMS and other menstrual and menopausal problems, while German chamomile is superbly effective on the skin, not only to soothe and calm, but to heal and for tissue regeneration. Both help soothe skin conditions like acne, eczema, rashes, wounds, dermatitis, and dry, itchy skin. Chamomile oil is excellent at treating any type of inflammation, but German chamomile contains azulene, a powerful anti-inflammatory agent.  This blue crystal is not actually present in the plant, but forms in the oil and only a small quantity is needed to be effective. Roman Chamomile essential oil is very mild when used on the skin. Due to this, it is a great choice for use on sensitive or inflamed skin. The Roman chamomile essential oil has a sweet, apple-like fragrance and is very light clear blue in color, while the German chamomile oil has a sweet, straw-like fragrance, and is dark blue in color. Roman chamomile can be used in a blended massage oil, or diluted in the bath, to assist with allergies, anorexia, addiction, colic, insomnia, back pain, muscle pain, arthritis, post-natal depression and bowel disorders, whereas German chamomile can be used for asthma, measles, mumps, PMS, menopausal symptoms, as well as rheumatism.

*Both chamomiles blend well with bergamot, clary sage, lavender, geranium, jasmine, tea tree, grapefruit, rose, lemon and ylang-ylang. 

Try using Chamomile in these various ways for calmer days!
