Out With The New, In With The Old!

Looking to not only keep up with what is trending, but to surpass your competition? 

Does you menu only showcase what is up and coming? Do you have a a solid foundation of tried and true treatments? Many of the spa owners I've spoken with lately, are trying to get the perfect mix of both.

Himalayan salt has been a trending topic for some time, but with old roots. The ancient secret, no longer so secret, has been proven to aid in respiratory issues, blood sugar, energy levels, sinus issues and more....much more.
While retailing salt lamps is a wise choice, have you thought about offering full body salt treatments?  Not just scrubs or soaks with Himalayan salt, thinking bigger...think bolder (think profit and reputation!)!

From a Himalayan Salt Table that provides the benefit of direct skin contact with perfectly-warmed salt, without any worry about sanitization, to a salt booth all the way to an entire custom built salt room or cave of your own. Read that again, a custom built salt room or cave of your own. How many businesses in your area are boasting that?

If you'd like to take your business to the next level, give us a call at 800-434-0018 to set up a salt room consultation!

Post Holiday Stress Relief!

It's no surprise that people are feeling the stress of the holidays. From running around getting gifts and/or cooking supplies (finding parking!) to holiday travelling...there's no shortage of stress related aches, pains and worn out nerves!

Here are two perfect massage oils for soothing your clients holiday stress!

Option 1:
In a dark (amber or blue work great!) glass bottle, mix 3 drops of rosemary essential oil and 3 drops of cinnamon essential oil with 1/4 cup of grapeseed oil or any carrier oil you prefer (coconut oil is always a best seller!). Put the lid on the bottle and shake well. It's as easy as that!

Option 2:
In a dark bottle, mix 4 drops of spruce essential oil, 3 drops of eucalyptus oil with 1/4 cup of carrier oil. Put the lid on and mix well. This is a super popular mix this time of year!

Give the client any excess oil in a smaller new glass bottle to take home as an added little touch!

Ayurveda: A Beauty Regimen That's 5,000 Years Old!

...and still applicable! Ayurveda is a nearly 5,000 year old science, and one of the earliest adopters of the mantra that "beauty comes from within." This practice focuses on balancing the whole body to enhance beauty and even optimize energy!

The Ayurvedic approach to caring for the skin starts with knowing your dosha. There are three doshas:

Vata
This type of skin is thin, dry, fine, and extremely delicate.  Their skin is dry, cold to the touch and is not smooth. They are prone to premature wrinkling, especially since they are sun worshippers and tend to be the ones with the darkest tan on the beach.  Many different factors disturb vata including stress, excess activity such as aerobics or constant travel, improper diet, the season of autumn, and especially an irregular routine.

Pitta
This type of skin is susceptible to breakouts and rosacea.  They have combination skin with sensitivities to various allergens, and are most sensitive to the sun.  A few of the things that cause the skin get out of balance are stress, over working, excess mental activity, improper diet, hot sunny weather, and the summer season.

Kapha
This type of skin is thicker, oilier, and prone to acne. Some of the causes of a kapha imbalance consist of not enough activity or exercise, improper diet, cold winter weather, and seclusion.

Thinking about incorporating this age old principle into your spa? We have an amazing selection of Ayurvedic products to choose from! From skincare lines, to Copper Shirodhara stands, we could help you bring this new (but very old!) way of beauty into your spa! Take a look at the items we carry below:

Add A Little Om To Your Spa

The winter can be a stressful time for many people. Seasonal effective disorder (also known as SAD) is winter depression that I'm sure you see many of your clients struggle with during this time of year. A good way to uplift their spirits can definitely be with a calm and relaxing spa atmosphere. Looking for new, unique decor to add? We have a beautiful Om Offering Bowl that can be used to set the tone of your spa. Om is a mantra that is often chanted at the beginning and end of yoga sessions. This magical word is said to be both the sound of the creation of the universe, as well as the sound of silence. Om is usually chanted to calm the mind as well as create a peaceful setting. This offering bowl is sculpted of brass, leaving it with a beautiful red-gold finish both on its interior and exterior. The natural coloring is further amplified by the brass accents with which it is decorated, depicting ornamental scroll work encircling the rim and the base of the bowl, and the beautifully sculpted Om symbols that run along the exterior of the bowl. Bring some om to your spa, and into your client's mind set with this gorgeous, decorative piece!

Improve Circulation This Winter with Arnica

Poor circulation is common during the cold winter months, and I'm sure many of your clients complain about it this time of year. Are you looking for more ways to take this common complaint into consideration at your spa this winter? While the average massage service can most certainly help, you can take it one step further by incorporating the herb arnica into your massage treatments. According to a recent article I read, arnica works with the body’s own system and helps to dispose of waste as well as increase circulation. In order for your clients to receive the maximum benefit from arnica, all you need to do is apply a small amount, about one or two drops of concentrated oil, to the desired area, followed by massage with your favorite cream. We have arnica oil here at Pure Spa Direct, as well as massage creams! Click here to browse our arnica collection, and help keep your clients' circulation balanced this winter!

Minty Fresh Pain Relief From Menthol!

Did you know that more Americans suffer from some type of pain than those who have cancer, diabetes, and even heart disease combined? Now that's a statistic to consider! According to a recent article I read, pain is definitely a major reason why clients will seek out massages and other stress reducing services to soothe their chronic pain. While massages can be extremely beneficial, there are definitely creams and other pain relieving items that can aid in reducing and even healing pain. Have you considered using menthol in your spa services? Menthol is a great way to relieve and soothe pain naturally. It acts as a mild anesthetic that cools the skin, then warms it. This drastic change in temperature prevents nerves from effectively transmitting pain. Did you know that we carry liquid menthol here at Pure Spa Direct? This can be a great addition to your massage creams for your clients who suffer from chronic pain! 

Looking for retail items to help your clients bring pain relief to their own home? We just got in these amazing new Therapearl Hot & Cold packs in all different styles! We have one for the neck, knee, and even an eye pack for tired, puffy, eyes which can also aide in headache relief. Help your clients who are suffering by offering these pain relieving products at your spa today!

Aromatherapy for Fall

Do you have clients who come in congested or with head colds now that the chillier weather is approaching? If so, it may be beneficial to switch up your essential oils you offer your clients during the Fall months, so you can better serve those who suffer from seasonal allergies. 

A recent article I read highlighted certain scents that can help clear your clients sinuses and also relax their muscles if they are feeling under the weather. It's great to have a custom essential oil blend ready for each individual client if you haven't already considered! Check out some ideas below:
Frankincense
This essential oil is great for warming up the body, especially with the colder months ahead. It’s also known for its comforting properties and can help to promote healthy cell regeneration. 

Eucalyptus
Eucalyptus oil can help to relive muscles aches and pains, and can also help to boost the immune system - perfect for your clients who are suffering from a cold!

Lavender
Definitely our most popular selling essential oil! This can help to relax your clients and soothe their muscle aches and pains while boosting their immune system as well! 

I highly recommend blend the above oils for a customized Aromatherapy for Fall that you can present to your clients during the upcoming months! Be sure to check out our site - we have quite an extensive list of essential oils to choose from!

Offer Your Clients Products with Frangipani Oil - They Will Thank You!

Not familiar with this oil? Neither was I until I read an recent article on its beauty benefits. Although it sounds like a decadent Italian dessert (yum!), frangipani oil comes from the frangipani tree which is also known as the tree of life and for centuries has been regarded for its healing powers. This oil is commonly used for its natural anti-aging properties, and also as an aromatherapy to help people maintain a sense of clam. 


We have a few products made with this luxurious healing oil here at Pure Spa Direct! If you haven't heard of the amazing brand MeBath yet, you are missing out! I personally love their products, and I'm sure your clients will, too. They make an amazing sugar scrub and effervescent soak that's created using frangipani oil and mulberry leaves.
