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!

Another Excuse to Indulge in Chocolate!


As if we need a reason, I'm sure most (who am I kidding - most likely ALL) of your clients are chocolate aficionados. Countless studies have shown that chocolate, specifically cocoa flavanol, can help to improve skin. It is known to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, as well as signs of aging in areas around the eyes. It increases hydration levels and skin elasticity. With Valentine's Day approaching, have you thought about adding any chocolate treatments into your spa service menu? Why not start with our Spa Pantry Cocoa Powder to create a Chocolate Indulgence Mask for your clients!
  • Simply Mix the Cocoa powder with coconut oil, and slightly heat until it's all blended together. 
  • Add honey, and apply as a mask during your facial services.
  • Leave on your client's face for ten to twenty minutes.
  • Rinse with warm water and a towel or sponge.
Your clients will love this indulgent service. It not only smells amazing, but the anti-aging benefits will have them coming back for more!

Chocolate Oatmeal Body Wrap---Good Enought To Eat!

Clients tend to expect treatment menus to feature chocolate services around holidays like Valentine's Day and Christmas; why not surprise them with something special as we head into the cooler months?

A chocolate and oatmeal body wrap is just the thing to surprise your clients with. Chocolate is excellent for increasing circulation, releasing toxins and reducing the appearance of cellulite. Oatmeal is excellent for increasing hydration and soothing skin irritations. Put them together and it's heavenly!

Start off by making your own exfoliating scrub with cocoa powder and flax seed. or try the Giovanni Hot Chocolate Sugar Scrub. Follow up with a body wrap made from cocoa powder and oatmeal.

If you're not one to make your own masks and scrubs, you could always use the Chocolate Comfort Sugar Scrub Body Treatment Kit by Body Concepts and mix in oatmeal powder. Another option is to add a few drops of the Ritual Alami Kakao Cocoa Essential Oil to the Desert Mineral Detox Scrub.

After the body wrap, you can always offer an add on chocolate bliss massage with chocolate massage oil!

Almost everyone loves chocolate, why wait until Valentine's Day to indulge your clients?

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!
