Natural Ingredients for Targeted Pain

Farmaesthetics is infamous for having effective products, with all natural ingredients. They are beautifully packaged and available in both a retail and back bar size.

Massage therapists are going crazy for the Farmaesthetics Arnica Remedy Oil 

This highly specialized, non-aromatic herbalist formulation is prepared by hand with organically grown herbs. Unlike typical massage oils made with herbal extracts or aromatic essential oils, Farmaesthetics' Remedy Oils are infused with whole organic herbs. The herbs we choose undergo a traditional infusion process, allowing time to garner the healing properties inherent in each. The result is significant when used in hot bath soaks and external massage and absorbed through the skin.

Why is arnica so awesome?
Arnica is highly regarded in herbalism for its ability to diminish bruising and swelling in skin tissue. Arnica has a complex chemistry but simply put, the herb works to affect the blood vessels so that there is a rapid reduction of inflammation, the kind associated with the injured tissue. A capful used in external massage or in a warm bath soak is a simple, effective way to introduce Arnica into the system, while at the same time conditioning the skin & improving circulation. Dermatologists are now recognizing the many benefits of Arnica for patients following laser or plastic surgery.

For clients experiencing tired or sore muscles, try using Farmaesthetics Arnica Remedy Oil in your sports massages.  The result is significant when used in hot bath soaks and external massage and absorbed through the skin. You can also spike your favorite massage oil with just a capful.


Incorporate the 10 oz Remedy Oil into your services, and retail the 4 oz Remedy Oil for happy clients!

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.
