Flu Facials?

It's no secret the flu has been rampant this year, along with some strong flu like illnesses going around. I've seen a few spas start to incorporate "Flu Facials" the last few weeks to help ease any lingering suffering.

If you have never had the flu, I commend your immune system! If you have had the flu, you know the muscle ache and facial pain from congestion. Once your client is on the road to recovery and back out in the world, a relaxing and clearing facial may sound heavenly!

Using products that are calming, cooling or refreshing starting with your cleanser, paying extra attention to facial pressure points. June Jacobs has a range of health driven products that would be perfect!

Warm facial towels or just a warm towel over the eyes can make a world of difference! A gentle face or scalp massage with a clearing essential oil like eucalyptus, peppermint or lemongrass makes an excellent add on service!

Making sure your towels, linens and blankets are soft and cozy along with optional herbal packs and teas can be just the thing your post flu clients are desperately needing!

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"!

Soaking In A Winter Wonderland!

Have you been thinking about your winter menu, or bringing something new and exciting to your services? Here is one that I wish I could take advantage of today on this cold, rainy day in NY!

All you need to do, is come up with a clever name for the service! This is a great soak to relax sore muscles, clear up congestion and drift off into deep relaxation. The essential oils in this also make it a great treatment for your male clients.

Here are a few reasons this makes an excellent addition to a winter menu:
Clearing Winter Soak
Mix together 3 tablespoons of eucalyptus leaves with 3 tablespoons of bilberry leaves in a mixing bowl. Add in 4 drops of spruce essential oil and mix well. Pour the herbs into a muslin bag using a funnel.

When filling the hydrotherapy or soaking tub, place the muslin bag in under the running water. Pour 3/4 cup of Himalayan Salt into the water, making sure it dissolves. Assist the client into the tub and allow them to soak for up to 20 minutes. Assist client out of the bath, follow up with some dry brushing, desert mineral detox scrub, a massage and/or detoxifying body wrap!
