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!

Steamer Issues? Stop by!

Aside from the flu, one of the most common topics buzzing right now are steamers. From an old steamer finally gave out, to one from Amazon that wasn't designed for heavy professional use couldn't handle the holiday rush.

If you've been noticing some issues or even wear and tear affecting the appearance of the steamer (clients don't want to see dirty, broken down equipment; would you?) or don't yet have a back up, you can't afford to wait any longer.

Whether you need one with ozone or aromatherapy or even a mini table top (these make great retail items as well!) for emergencies or space concerns, there are fantastic options in every price range. If you like keeping your cash flow positive, head over to the financing application!

Flu And You!

The last few weeks, the majority of people I've spoken with have all had the flu. It's widespread and hitting hard.

Is your business ready to help protect staff and clients? Have extra hand sanitizer bottles placed in every room, have some for retail, keep a bottle at the front desk. Be sure to have plenty of disinfectant wipes, disinfectants, gloves and face masks if needed!

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"!

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.
