Spas Source Local Plants and Flowers For Custom Spa Treatments

In a recent article by Nicole Altavilla  for American Spa Magazine, Nicole shared some of the personalized treatments spas are creating from locally sourced plants and flowers. 

According to the article, spas like Spa Matilda in San Miguel de Allende, Floral Compresses
Treatment include the application of warm compresses (Poultice) filled with locally grown dried flowers, such as lavender, orange blossom, and rose.

At Spa Heaven at Borgo Santo Pietro (Tuscany, Italy), "Fresh flowers are picked daily from the spa gardens and placed throughout the spa. What’s more, the spa boasts an alfresco canopied therapy suite next to the garden for guests to enjoy the intoxicating scents of jasmine, rose, and other flowers while they are pampered. Also, some of the spa’s treatments feature herbs and flowers handpicked before the treatment, such as the Borgo’s Nature’s Bounty ($287, 2 hours), which features a basil, rosemary, and sea salt body scrub; a massage; and a facial that includes a honey and lavender mask."

Aspira The Spa at The Osthoff Resort (Elkhart Lake, WI) offers the Wild Chamomile and Lavender Body Masque ($130, 50 minutes). Treatment includes an application of the spa’s signature body mask using wild chamomile and lavender, grown and harvested from the resort’s own Osthoff Gardens.

Are you interested in offering herbal based treatments but don't have a fresh field of botanicals to source from, Pure Spa Direct has a rich selection of bulk herbs and poultices for creating your own, bespoke treatment compresses for spa services.

I adore the idea of creating a therapeutic service from indigenous flora, this is definitely the kind of regional and bespoke treatment that my husband and I look for on the menu when "spa-ing" in different parts.

Eco-fin. An Environment Friendly Alternative To Paraffin Treatments!


Want to know a great, healthy way to get soft skin, all while being friendly to the environment?

Eco-fin Paraffin Alternative is the answer! Eco-fin is a natural eco-friendly alternative to popular paraffin treatments. It is made with 100% natural plant-based emollients and pure essential oils. It contains no petroleum, artificial dyes, or synthetic fragrances. Eco-friendly, people-friendly, and biodegradable. Eco-fin is a healthy and nourishing treatment that leaves your skin soft without harming the environment. It is a rich blend of palm, soy, jojoba, organic oils, shea butter, vitamin E and essential oils. Another great perk to this product: preparing and clean up are super easy!

Did I also mention they smell great?! Your client will love choosing from these amazing scents:

Happy: Raspberry-Grapefruit Blend
Muse: Cinnamon-Ginger Blend
Escape: Peppermint Essence
Shangri-La: Jasmine-Sandlewood Blend 
Pleasure: Chocolate Essence
Dream: Vanilla Essence
Reverie: Lavender-Vanilla Blend
Retreat: Coconut-Pineapple Blend
Be Well: Green Tea-Aloe Blend
Purity: Unscented


Instructions for an Eco-fin treatment:

  • Drop the selected Eco-Fin Cube into the prepared Eco-Sleeve. 
  • Roll the sleeve over itself into a tidy roll. 
  • *Note: For convenience, you can order extra Eco-Sleeves for Mitts and Eco-Sleeves for Booties and prepare several rolls ahead of time. They can be kept warm in your hot towel cabi, or you can warm the liner only in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds before inserting it into the sleeve. Use caution when using microwaves as they vary and may require less heating time. Overheating can melt the plastic liners.
  • If you don’t have a warmed sleeve already prepared, warm the liner only in the microwave for 30 seconds before inserting the Eco-Fin cube into the sleeve. 
  • Unroll the Eco-Sleeve and slide it onto guest’s hand or foot. Help disperse the rich emulsion evenly by massaging over the hands or feet.
  • Place warm herbal or electric mitts/booties onto the hands or feet.
  • Remove mitts/booties and liners after 10 to 15 minutes and massage remaining emulsion into hands and forearms or feet and legs. Discard used liners and reuse sleeves/herbal mitts & booties.


Also, this is a great, low cost add-on for any spa/salon treatments you offer! Based on a hand treatment using 1 cube per hand, it's less then $1.60 per treatment!

Ice, Ice Baby...

I was speaking with one of our clients recently (a really nice spa director at a mid-sized day spa) and she was asking if we had something attractive for offering cold beverages in their relaxation room. She wanted to have a wider selection than the usual pitcher of water with lemons and cucumbers (Mmmmmmmm, I DO love that... so refreshing!). I search our site and found these awesome Bamboo Ice Housing thingys. They are "Eco-Smart", good looking and super functional. She ordered a medium and a large and called me today and told me how much she loved them. I thought they were super cool, she loved 'em, maybe they would be AMAZING in your spa too!!!
