Hot Oil Massage? Yes Please!

Maybe it's the weather here in NY starting to get a bit colder, all I can think of is getting a massage from a therapist who uses warm oil or lotion.  It struck me, even as a massage therapist, that my brain automatically went to thinking of therapists who warm their oil, rather than just thinking "I'm going to get a massage".

Something as simple as a bottle warmer can make the difference for your clients. You don't necessarily have to use it with every client, if you aren't a fan of working with warmed oil/lotion. Having it as an option however, may be a great investment. It may just be the tipping point for clients choosing your services or your competitor.

There are many options and styles to choose from to fit any budget!

Product Of The Week: Aromafloria Sinus Help Inhalation Beads

Happy Friday!

Now that cold and flu season has been hitting areas hard, do you have any items on hand to ease congestion?

Aromafloria Sinus Help Inhalation Beads are an excellent, effective and affordable item everyone should have at their retail counter this season. We had a bottle here in the office and I purchased one as a gift for my mother last year - amazing!  A year later, and my mother still talks about how these helped clear her head.

These powerful little beads are full of eucalyptus, peppermint and lemongrass to easy congestion and boost the stuffiest of moods. They come with a cute little pouch to fill with the beads making inhalation easy and portable.  You don't have to fill the pouch up completely as a little can go a long way, depending on the level of congestion.

Did I mention these are only $5.50 each? Have a tester bottle nearby, offer it to clients to try or try it on them during a service if they are congested! Retailing at $10.00 makes it appealing to clients as well, especially once they've had a chance to smell (and feel!) how great this is.

These make great impulse item purchases, gifts and you can easily use them as an add on "boost"!

Weathered Hands- This Product has got you Covered.. Literally

Winter weather can wreak havoc on hands. Want to know why? Dr. Jessica Wu explains "Dry skin is especially common in the winter months when the humidity level outside drops. When the air outside is cold and dry, the water in your skin evaporates more quickly; this makes your skin feel dry and tight and makes it look flaky. In fact, your skin loses more than 25 percent of its ability to hold moisture in the winter." (Everyday Health)

You can help your clients and boost your sales at the same time.

The Heating Pad To End All Heating Pads

I may have a slight addiction to heating pads, packs, etc. I even have the microwavable booties to ensure total warmth. I was ridiculously excited to see one of our newest additions this week, Dr. Bob's Neck Wrap Heating Pad.

Finally, a heating pad that covers the shoulders, goes all the way up the back of the neck, AND wraps all the way to the front to reach the chest muscles!

This is excellent for retailing to clients, as well as an awesome treat for clients during treatments. I would absolutely recommend a business to the world if I was getting a service and they offered me this!

Always remember, it may be something little that makes all the difference to your clients!

Improve Circulation This Winter with Arnica

Poor circulation is common during the cold winter months, and I'm sure many of your clients complain about it this time of year. Are you looking for more ways to take this common complaint into consideration at your spa this winter? While the average massage service can most certainly help, you can take it one step further by incorporating the herb arnica into your massage treatments. According to a recent article I read, arnica works with the body’s own system and helps to dispose of waste as well as increase circulation. In order for your clients to receive the maximum benefit from arnica, all you need to do is apply a small amount, about one or two drops of concentrated oil, to the desired area, followed by massage with your favorite cream. We have arnica oil here at Pure Spa Direct, as well as massage creams! Click here to browse our arnica collection, and help keep your clients' circulation balanced this winter!

New Holiday Candles! (Too Soon)?

It's mid-October, and Halloween decor is officially in it's peak. With that being said, as soon as Midnight hits on November 1st, I can guarantee all the shelves at your local stores will be stocked with holiday products! Too soon, you say? It's never too soon to start thinking ahead for the holidays, especially when it comes to consumerism. Have your business prepared for the holiday rush with our new Winter Legacy Collection from Root Candles! We also just added their Holiday Pastries & Sweet Treats Collection here at Pure Spa Direct. Umm, yummy! I am loving their packaging this year. The Gingerbread House is my favorite - look at how adorable he is! 

Have you thought about the holidays for your spa yet? Get your order in for these candles and have you spa prepared for the holiday rush, because I'm sure you'll be busy now that the months are getting colder. What better way to set a cozy ambiance in your spa for the winter months than these candles? You can even retail these to your clients who will most likely be looking for a holiday gift alongside their usual skincare purchase. We have our pumpkin candle burning here at the Pure Spa headquarters, but I'm sure we'll start lighting these new candles that just arrived in a couple of weeks, and I must say... I'm pretty excited!

Aromatherapy for Fall

Do you have clients who come in congested or with head colds now that the chillier weather is approaching? If so, it may be beneficial to switch up your essential oils you offer your clients during the Fall months, so you can better serve those who suffer from seasonal allergies. 

A recent article I read highlighted certain scents that can help clear your clients sinuses and also relax their muscles if they are feeling under the weather. It's great to have a custom essential oil blend ready for each individual client if you haven't already considered! Check out some ideas below:
Frankincense
This essential oil is great for warming up the body, especially with the colder months ahead. It’s also known for its comforting properties and can help to promote healthy cell regeneration. 

Eucalyptus
Eucalyptus oil can help to relive muscles aches and pains, and can also help to boost the immune system - perfect for your clients who are suffering from a cold!

Lavender
Definitely our most popular selling essential oil! This can help to relax your clients and soothe their muscle aches and pains while boosting their immune system as well! 

I highly recommend blend the above oils for a customized Aromatherapy for Fall that you can present to your clients during the upcoming months! Be sure to check out our site - we have quite an extensive list of essential oils to choose from!

Take A Whiff

These Aromatherapy Inhalers are really cool and were very popular this week! They look like chap stick, can fit in your pocket, and have many different scents and purposes. After a stressful day in the warehouse I always reach for my Headache Relief Inhaler... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great ESS Aromatherapy Inhaler selection HERE!

Changing Seasons - Changing Sheets!

With the change in season speeding it's way here, have you stopped to think about your bed/table coverings? Not every one wants to start thinking about the cooler fall weather and cold winter ahead. If you think about it now you're good for at least another year, and you'll beat the rush!

You may want to start bringing in, and even transitioning, your linens to some cozy flannel ones. I know it's hot and humid in most parts of the country, the last thing anyone wants is flannel. You do not want to be without it, or doing a last minute frantic scramble to make sure your clients are warm (without sending your heating bill through the roof)!

Whether you need organic flannel, full sets or just a top sheet, we have you covered (I couldn't resist)!

If you're in a place where the weather is comfortable all year round, when was the last time you updated your sheets or tried a new look? From microfiber to coly-potton with plenty of color options (check out the best selling Sposh line), you can get creative!

Don't forget blankets, table warmers (the Samadhi-Pro is an excellent choice) and cushy warm robes for clients (like me!) who run on the colder side - having extra warmth may be the difference between you and your competition!

Warm Your Client's Spirits With Benzoin Oil!

The cooler months are rapidly approaching and clients will be dreaming of the recent warm times!

A great, often overlooked essential oil to add to your arsenal is Benzoin Oil. Benzoin has a warming, uplifting and soothing effect which makes it awesome in cooler months.


Here are a few of the ways to incorporate this on to your menu:

Since eucalyptus and peppermint are the commonly used oils for cooler months, adding Benzoin to your menu is a great product that will make your treatments really stand out!

Fight the Cold Weather with a Warm Kozi Herbal Neck Wrap

What does the cold weather bring besides snow, traffic, and ice? Aches and pains! And what better way to soothe those aches and pains then a Kozi Herbal Neck Wrap. They were in and out of the warehouse this week. I'm thinking about getting one for my father for Christmas - He's always complaining about something hurting him.

Hand-TASTIC! Great Add-On Treatment for ALL of Your Clients

Clients complaining about ashy and dry hands? Is all the lotion and Vaseline not working? 


Beautiful, well-kept and delicate hands are important. Reminding your clients that their hands tell a number of things about who they are is important! No matter how firm the face, hands can give away their true age! Treat your clients' hands to some TLC by using a hand mask to keep their paws in perfect condition.

If they think that by washing, cleansing and moisturizing their hands is all that they can do to pamper them, remind them to think again! Your client's hands are also as exposed to heat, cold and water as their face is.  A hand treatment mask will  help them pamper our hands a little more! And no need to worry about consuming too much time....applying hand treatment masks is also an easy task!

Allow Pure Spa Direct to help you nourish your clients' hands with the Exfoliating Hand Masque / 10 Pack by uQ you and they will be sure to just LOVE! This is a GREAT add-on treatment to increase your bottom line - apply it during a facial mask, pedicure mask, or at the end of a massage - the opportunities are endless, and your clients will be even happier with the results you provide them!

Drink Your Way To Feeling Better This Winter Season


Cold and flu season is upon us and one of the essential feel-better items for many is a nice, hot cup of tea. 

While regular tea with honey is a common go to remedy, there are teas designed especially for respiratory, breathing and immune support. Each type of tea contains a specific combination of herbs that have been shown to support and boost the immune system, help with breathing and ease sore throat discomfort. 

This winter season instead of reaching for regular tea why not try some of the great herbal teas like these:



These are great items to retail or as a nice treat for clients while they wait or are receiving a particular treatment to make them feel extra special and show how much you care about their well-being, not just their patronage.
