Fall Menu Secret Weapon: Clove Essential Oil

We all know that pumpkin and cranberry are the sought after fall scents, flavor and menu items. If you are looking for a little something different to infuse some fall menu, take a look at clove essential oil.

Personally, the smell of clove always has a warm, comfort feeling to it. That little spice in fall foods that adds that something extra.  As an essential oil, it can bring about comforting memories or feelings of warmth,comfort and peace making it an excellent choice to add in to everything from massage oils, aromatherapy showers to pedicures.

It also blends well with citrus scents and not a lot is needed to achieve the full effect!

Aside from smelling amazingly delicious, cinnamon has a plethora of health and beauty benefits! It's great for healthy skin, and overall wellness. Now that it's Fall, I'm sure you are changing up your spa's menu, and incorporating new scents and services for your clients. Cinnamon is definitely a popular Fall scent I'm sure most (if not, all!) your clients love! It's warming, and it's pleasant scent offers relaxing and refreshing properties.  When cinnamon is used in aromatherapy diffused, or even applied topically, it can have health-promoting effects! Not sure where to start? Here are some ways to use cinnamon leaf essential oil at your spa:

Facial Scrub: Mix it with cinnamon sugar and coconut oil (or any oil your client prefers) to create a rejuvenating scrub that smells amazing!

Foot Soak: Mix a drop of cinnamon oil in a bucket of warm water that your clients can soak their feet in during pedicure services! This will also feel super refreshing.

Aromatherapy: During your massage or facial services, simply drop cinnamon oil into any of our diffusers to make the room smell amazing. The scent will most certainly keep your clients relaxed during their treatment.

Happy Fall!

Transitioning To Fall and Winter!

We've been speaking with many clients the last few weeks about their fall menus as well as the upcoming holiday season. While it may seem far off, it will be here before you know it!

Here is one of my all time favorite recipe combinations for the fall and/or winter season that can be used in a multitude of services:

Cinnamon Comfort (or whatever name you'd like to use!)
To start off, create the mood. Fill a diffuser with water and add in the following essential oils: 2 drops of Clove, 5 drops of Cinnamon, and 4 drops of Ginger -  for every ounce of water.

For massages, mani/pedi treatments etc, you can make the following massage oil, cream or lotion:

In a mixing bowl,  mix 4 oz. of unscented oil, cream, or lotion with the following essential oils:  1 drop of Clove, 3 drops of Cinnamon, and 2 drops of Ginger and mix well.

For a cinn-ful body scrub/polish:
In a mixing bowl, mix 8 oz. of unscented salt or sugar with 4 tablespoons of a carrier oil and mix well.  Add in the following essential oils: 5 drops of Clove, 10 drops of Cinnamon, and 5 drops of Ginger.

Very easy to make and use - you can even get sample jars or bottles to give your clients any extra to take home!

Back To School Specials!

We're in the midst of enjoying the summer, and school seems to have just let out however, summer will be winding down and before you know it, kids will be heading back to school.

Do you offer any special back to school services or incentives to boost sales? Aside from the usual end of summer hydrating body treatments, why not offer "school specials" like back or teen facials?

Everyone wants to look and FEEL their best on the first day of anything, especially the first day of school. Talking to parents about the benefits of skin care and skin health for their kids should be happening in more spas. It's never too soon to take care of your skin or to get your kids into a great skin care routine.

For high school and college kids, why not offer a special rate on specific services when they show their school id?

Need some product ideas? Here are some products that are always best sellers this time of year:

Acne Modeling Mask by Martinni
Fruit Collagen Mask - Kiwi Fruit Acne Clearing Mask
Tabletop Multiwave LED Light Therapy - LED Treatments in 7 Wavelengths
Quasar Led For Acne
Control Corrective Acne Line
Clarifying Lotion Toner by Endear Skin Care Solutions
Raw Alaska Glacial Mineral Mud - everyone should have this on hand for services and retail!

Give us a shout by phone, email or live chat for more ideas as well!

Time To Get Organized!

The weather's getting colder, and I'm sure you're in the process of organizing your business for the busier season ahead.

I'm sure you can find something useful on our site to soothe at least some of your stress when in comes to organizing, which I'm sure can be overwhelming! Check out some of my suggestions below.

I know what you're thinking! With computers and organizational software, who would ever think of hand writing in a book in 2015? I must say, there is something about writing things down that will help you remember instead of typing it out. Computers crash, and wouldn't you hate to keep a client waiting until your computer restarts in the midst of a crash to book her next appointment? Our appointment books have been rather popular lately! You may want to consider purchasing one, even if it's just for emergency computer situations!


My latest favorite! The beloved SpaScriptive PadAh, finally... something you will actually NEED to write down for your clients. Hand these pads out to your staff, and I guarantee they will thank you for being a thoughtful spa owner! This pad is a great way to increase revenue after every treatment. It communicates to clients that post treatment follow-up care at home and in the spa is important for maximizing the benefits of the spa experience. Your staff can also write down product suggestions. Such a simple, yet effective tool for greatly increasing your profits. Who ever would have thought?


Are you tired of seeing your staff on their phone all day? Increase staff productivity and keep your business organized with these adorable cell phone storage units! We also sell lockers, for both your staff and clients.







Be sure to check out the Wellness Office Supplies section on our site, and call us to help you organize all of your business needs!
