Combat the 4 S's- Sun, Smoke, Sugar, and Stress

My new favorite brand is Farmaesthetics! I am obsessed with their packaging paired with their overall effectiveness. Made with completely natural, organic ingredients for multiple uses! All come with both a professional and retail size, making it an easy for your services and retail!

This weeks favorite of mine is Farmaesthetics Hand to Heel Softening Salve
When I first saw this product I thought it would be great for feet, heels specifically. But this all natural salve has more uses and is not limited to just that!
Applications & Benefits:

  • Softens rough, dry elbows, knees and heels
  • Cuticle and nail- bed treatment
  • Callus softener
  • Useful on diabetic skin conditions, such as cracked hardened heels.
  • Relieves symptoms of eczema (on infants as well).
  • Softens dry, flaking "cradle cap" in infants.
  • Diaper salve for baby rashes
It protects and heals the effects of work, wear and tear, exposure to the elements, wounds, burns (even those produced by laser surgery), bruises, and eczema (including childhood and nervous onset). 

Calendula is a heady resinous marigold flower that contains potent active healing constituents. Nature's most unique compound, beeswax, provides germ killing protective barriers that lock in moisture. Lavender is added for its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory agents, as well as a soothing scent, and a settling effect on the skin and nervous system. Peppermint and Beta Carotene add additional building blocks for tissue rejuvenation.

Cold Season Help... for Retail

Have you heard about Farmaesthetics yet?

I cannot say enough about this brand! The client response is phenomenal!
Trade the preservatives, dyes, and fake fragrances for wholesome herbs, flowers, grains, and oils. Farmaesthetics professional and retail natural skin care incorporate the 100% pure, organic elements your clients crave and leave out the artificial ingredients for a refreshing change. Natural and effective skin care based on herbal traditions.

Easy to add to your menu, with a manageable number of products. Beautiful apothecary looks for retail boutiques.

Farmaesthetics is making the perfect elixir for this season and you can retail it!

Farmaesthetics Vapor Bath Elixir / 4 oz.
Farmaesthetics Vapor Bath Elixir is "a spa in a bottle", as it has been called, this vibrant green Vapor Bath Elixir is full of essential oils to warm the body and relax the mind. This chlorophyll-infused preparation will soften, purify, and deodorize the skin, while vaporous essential oils release to open congestion and relax tight or achy muscles. Use as a deep herbal soak to revitalize the entire system.

WHAT the Key Ingredients are and WHY they work
  • Chlorophyll: Known as liquid sunshine, liquid chlorophyll is nontoxic and soothing to body tissues when applied in an external bath.
  • Menthol: A soothing compound derived from the peppermint plant. If used in small amounts, menthol generates a cool heat, activated by the friction of "rubbing". 
  • Clove Essential Oil: Long used to treat fungal infections, the kind that impact nail beds, cuticles, and feet, clove is an antibacterial as well. It has powerful local antiseptic and mild anesthetic actions was known as a decongestant and inhalation for colds. It is less known but highly valued for its bactericidal and antiviral action. It not only relieves nasal congestion but also is known to actually inhibit the proliferation of the cold virus. In massage, it is relieving to muscular aches and pains.
  • Lavender Essential Oil: It stimulates and rejuvenates the skin and restores the skin's natural balance in oil production. It also stimulates sore, exhausted muscles and soothes the nerves, while acting as an aromatic astringent.
  • Geranium Essential Oil: Oil derived from the geranium flower. Like virtually all the flower oils, it is an antidepressant and antiseptic and is valued for its astringent and antiseptic properties. 
  • White Camphor Essential Oil: Known for its value in treating colds, chills, and inflammatory complaints, it relieves skin irritation. In cases of nervous excitement, it has a soothing and quieting result
  • Glutamate (aclyglutamate): A delicate cleansing agent derived from natural sugar cane; adds the slip to the preparations as well as the gentle action of removing excess oil. 
  • Vegetable Glycerin: Used as a humectant, it actually attracts moisture from the air and binds it to the skin's surface. It also provides a protective barrier on the skin so as to retain its moisture.

Farmaesthetics Deep Lavender Rub / 4 oz.
Voted "Favorite Product" by Spa Magazine beauty editors and "Best in New England" by Yankee Magazine, this herbal ode to Vicks® Vapo Rub® is a deep comfort rub that utilizes the heat-producing essential oils of ginger, rosemary, and eucalyptus to relax and release upper respiratory tightness due to colds, allergies, stress, or asthma. It is also an excellent lineament for stiff or strained muscles due to overexertion or inactivity (both extremes can yield sore muscles). Deep Lavender Rub is a powerful preparation that is gentle enough for a child.

Purpose:
Deep Heat Comfort Rub for relieving upper respiratory tightness due to colds or allergies. Apply to chest or neck area, then cover with a warm towel to super-charge effects of the essential oils and herbs, to relax tension and aid in a good night's sleep.

Sinus Relief by opening nasal passages. As essential vapors are released and inhaled, there is an "opening" of the sinuses, helping relieve stuffiness and easing mental tension and headache. The releasing heat of our herbal rub will help increase circulation and blood flow to the face, and this is excellent for optimizing a healthy complexion.

Muscular Massage is greatly enhanced by using Deep Lavender Rub, not only for the aroma therapeutic qualities of Ginger, Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Rosemary, but also for their ability to penetrate muscle tissue and relax tension from a range of conditions like flu, illness, or sports.

Hand and Foot Treatments are all the better when enhanced with Deep Lavender Rub. Whether its a hand and foot massage you give yourself at the end of a long day or one administered to someone in need of TLC, applying a small amount of Deep Lavender Rub with massage, to soles and palms, will super-charge the healing benefits of the treatment. (Did you know that the soles of the feet and palms are the most vulnerable areas of the body for taking in herbal constituents?) Wrapping hands or feet in warm towels after application, will further soften skin and maximize the relaxation response.

Key Ingredients:
  • Sweet Almond: It stimulates and rejuvenates the skin and restores the skin's natural balance in oil production. It also stimulates sore, exhausted muscles and soothes the nerves, while acting as an aromatic astringent.
  • Ginger Essential Oil: One of the best of the heat producing essential oils - known to stimulate and increase circulation.
  • Eucalyptus Essential Oil: Best known as a decongestant and inhalation for colds. It is less known but highly valued for its bactericidal and antiviral action. 
  • Rosemary Essential Oil: Another of the heat producing oils, chosen for its ability to stimulate the nervous system and to increase circulation when used in conjunction with massage. Used in an upper body massage or in steam inhalation, the oil has the ability to "clear the head". 
  • Peppermint Essential Oil: Cools the skin. Relieves the discomforts of heat rash. Reduces the itch and sting of insect bites. 
Incorporate into your treatments and retail for fall and winter!

Spa Upgrade - Top Selling Bed Your Clients Will Love

Want to provide ultimate comfort for your clients during your services? It may be time to upgrade your bed, and I have the bed for you!

Take a look at the Krista 3 motor electric beauty bed by silver spa! The Krista 3 Motor Electric Beauty Bed has a clean minimalist design with very comfortable cushioning that is nearly 3.5" thick. The Krista is powered by 3 motors that control the height, the backrest angle, and the seat inclination movement. This bed is both aesthetically pleasing and amazingly versatile - a phenomenal addition to any treatment room!

This bed is made to keep your clients comfortable and allow you to do your job as efficiently as possible.
  • The Krista is contoured to the body for extended treatments, with a contoured seat to keep from sliding, and has an extra inch of foam for lower back support!
  • Unlike most beds (which tilt 10-12 degrees) Krista's tilt will allow almost 20 degrees so you can get the client's feet above their head for treatments.
  • Has 3 motors that automatically control all movements (height, backrest, and footrest). With the ability to manually raise the foot rest too!

Therapist Communication And Intake Cards

There was an article in Massage Magazine today about creating therapist communication, and how it impacts business. I also was speaking with a client earlier in the day about treatment cards which got me thinking about using them to grow the business.

I always think of intake forms and soap notes from way back when I was in school. Aside from the basic record keeping and progress tracking aspects, I never thought about just how important they were to growing a business.

We all know the importance of the intake form for finding out likes, dislikes, conditions, injuries, etc, however, so much more can be gained. In the notes section, ask the client if there are any products, treatments, modalities aside from what they are seeing you for that they are interested in, have questions on or are even a bit frightened of. For the therapist, this makes it easy to tailor their treatment plan to their needs as well as their likes. You can educate them on anything they have questions on, services they may not be comfortable with but are intrigued by. It opens an opportunity to even demo, discount a first new service, or offer a mini service - all of these lead into happier clients coming in for more and more services. This also helps build trust between you and the client if done with right. You may be trying to get a client to add on aromatherapy to their massage, when they have zero interest in it but are too shy/afraid to tell you they would like to try a detox body treatment. By getting that information on the intake form, there's no guessing! The client gets to try something new, it adds another piece to their wellness puzzle, and you increase profits.

Asking your clients questions about more than just their immediate concern is a great way to expand the services they come in for!

Happy Penguins (and even Happier Clients)!


I was super excited to see that our best selling retail brush - the infamous Wet Brush - just got a whole lot cuter! How adorable is the new Happy Penguin print on these brushes? Whether you admit to it or not, the colder months are ahead, so why not stock your salon with this new arctic chill print?


What exactly makes these brushes one of the hottest selling salon items out there, you ask?! Aside from working well on wet hair, they also detangle hair with ease using the adaptive flexibility of IntelliFlex. The bristles one them are super thin, strong and very flexible. This completely eliminates tugging, tearing, pulling and ripping...your clients will be happier than the happiest penguin on the print :) A bit cheesy, I know, but they are just too cute! Okay okay, aside from the adorable print, what's the selling point? Other than being the best selling brush we have, you can increase your business profits from the 9 piece retail display for nearly double the amount of your wholesale cost. Happy Penguins, Happier Clients.. but you'll be the happiest of them all knowing this! Get them today here at Pure Spa Direct before they sell out, since I know we tend to sell these brushes fast!
