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?

Benefits of a Himalayan Salt Lamp

Did you know all the benefits of a Natural Salt Lamp? The negative salt ions released by heating can boost blood flow, improve sleep, increase levels of serotonin in the brain, and calm allergy or asthma symptoms. Besides these homeopathic perks, there's an added relaxation element. And what client doesn't want to be uber relaxed at a spa!?

By putting one in your treatment room, not only will the clients reap the benefits, but your staff too!

Check out this classic Natural Salt Lamp

One-of-a-kind and absolutely beautiful, these natural salt lamps are hand-shaped from select chunks of the finest, most potent salt crystal in the world. However, these attractive lamps provide more than ambient, soothing light. Some users may experience homeopathic health benefits from using them --the most immediate and dramatic being for those suffering from respiratory allergies and/or asthma.

Note: Due to their natural and unique quality, each lamp will vary somewhat in both color and exact form. Coloring ranges from soothing apricot and peach to deep and fiery red and orange.

All lamps include a wooden base, a six-foot UL® Listed electrical cord with a bulb of between 7 and 40 watts, based on the lamp's size.

Size: 6"-8" tall, 7-10 lbs.

Usage:

There are several nice things to say about Himalayan Salt Lamps, including the fact that they are made with natural, sustainable Himalayan salt. In addition, the companies that mine the salt are socially responsible.

No Space for a Salt Room? Your Clients Can Still Benefit from Himalayan Salt!

Himalayan Salt has long been acclaimed for its unique healing properties. These sea salts are some of the best sources of a huge number of minerals that support life on Earth. One of the most popular benefits of Himalayan Salt is its detoxifying properties. Salt Lamps and Lights are popular because they draw water from the air into the salt, where the salt traps any toxins before the water is evaporated back into the air.


TouchAmerica's Himalayan Salt Frame makes it easy to add this healing feature to a spa, salon or wellness facility. This innovative system is ideal for adding to a sauna where dry heat activates the Himalayan salt blocks, transforming them into ionizers. Wellness is enhanced with an abundance of ions that support the respiratory and immune systems. Himalayan Salt is beautiful, especially when lit. Our frames come with a LED rope light to backlight the salt and add beauty to its natural healing properties. We designed our Himalayan Salt Frame system to be easy to install, requiring no special tools or skills. 


Specifications:

  • Sizes:
    • 9 Himalayan Salt Blocks - 29.25" W x 17" H
    • 12 Himalayan Salt Blocks - 29.25" W x 20.75" H
    • Custom sizes available
  • Materials: Himalayan Salt Blocks 4" x 8" x 1"
  • Cedar Wood
  • LED rope light, 120VAC

Not All Salts are Created Equal!

Salt has gained such a bad rep over the past few decades. This is largely because of commercial table salt that we see everywhere which can cause heart and health problems when consumed excessively! The good news is there's a salt out there that is actually good for you and can help enhance your clients' skin and overall beauty.

Himalayan Sea Salt has been gaining popularity over the last few years, and for good reason! This type of salt is packed with 84 different minerals and naturally contain iodine. Compared to table salt, which is stripped of iodine and vital minerals, Himalayan sea salt is used for detoxification, muscle relaxation, and even sinus issues! Does your spa have any products containing it? You might want to consider getting on this latest trend to help enhance your massage, pedicure, and even facial treatments!

We have a variety of Himalayan Sea Salt products here at Pure Spa Direct. Check out my favorites below!
How adorable are these Himalayan Salt Massage Stones Hearts?! These massage stones  are derived of salt crystals from an ancient primal sea beneath the Himalayan Mountains are hand-carved into massage stones that gently soothe away an accumulation of stress, tension and pollutants. Your clients will love them!





Are you in need of more decor in your spa? Our Himalayan Salt Pyramid Lamp is made with the white salt and has a beautiful natural wood base for an elegant touch. You might want to consider retailing these to your clients as well!







Interested in adding a Himalayan Sea Salt Pedicure to your spa menu? Our Fine Himalayan Salt Scrub is great to use as a soak and exfoliation on your clients!

Rejuvenation, Naturally: Full Body Spa Therapies

As our body's largest organ, the skin plays a critical role to health, aging, looks. So many clients focus their time and energy on keeping the skin on their faces healthy, revitalized, and rejuvenated...but what about the skin on their body? Body skin ages at essentially the same rate as the skin on the face. Why not focus some of your clients' attention on rejuvenating this skin as well?


Natural Body Therapies are not only good for the skin, but they are excellent for relaxation and mindful wellness, as well. 

Body Brush Exfoliation
Dry skin brushing is a great way to exfoliate, improve circulation, combat cellulite, and more. Dry brushing is a great treatment to offer when the seasons are transitioning, since the skin is sensitive to environmental changes. Dry brushing is performed with your choice of a number of tools: loofahs, sisal, "paint" brushes, body brushes, exfoliating gloves, and more.
  • Exfoliates dead skin cells
  • Improves circulation by stimulating top layers of skin
  • Helps boost immune system
  • Aids in lymphatic drainage
  • Excellent anti-cellulite treatment
  • Helps rid the body of toxins
  • Can help even muscle tone and redistribute fat deposits
Salt Scrub Exfoliation
Exfoliating with a salt scrub stimulates the skin, cleanses the pores, and improves the texture of dull, tired skin. Salt also has antiseptic properties, so a good scrub may kill and remove infection-causing bacteria from the surface of the skin.
  • Exfoliates dead skin cells
  • Improves circulation by stimulating top layers of skin
  • Excellent anti-cellulite treatment
  • Helps rid the body of toxins
  • Promotes healthy cell regeneration
  • Nourishes the skin
  • Promotes relaxation
Herbal Wraps
Using a natural, herbal solution in combination with compression wraps is a concept that has been around for thousands of years. Body wraps are often used for Moisturizing, Detoxifying, Slimming, or Cellulite Reduction.
  • Hydrates and nourishes the skin
  • Draws toxins and impurities from the body
  • Improves circulation and can reduce pain and inflammation
  • Exfoliates and tones skin
  • Improves elasticity and healthy skin cell regeneration

Salt of the Earth: A Comparison of Bulk Salts Offered By Pure Spa Direct

At Pure Spa Direct, we offer all types of bulk salts, whether they are from the Mediterranean Sea, the French Coast, the Dead Sea or the Himalayan Mountains.  But its all just Sodium Chloride, right? The answer is a resounding NO - There are major differences that will have a definitive impact on your clients and the services your offer.

This particular type of salt is solar evaporated on the shores of the Mediterranean, meaning that sea water is left out in the sun to evaporate under natural conditions.  Once the water has evaporated, pure sea salt crystals are revealed.  This is probably one of the more popular salts since it is cost-effective, available in a multitude of grain sizes and it also dissolves quickly.  Containing such minerals as Iodine, Fluorine, Magnesium and Potassium, this salt can be used as a soak and a scrub.



                                 
This Sea Salt is farmed from the Brittany Marshes off the coast of France using methods that have been in place for over 1000 years.  Unrefined and full of trace minerals, this salt is actually lower in sodium and contains Calcium, Potassium, Copper, Zinc and Iron.  While it can be used as a scrub, this salt is best used as a soak.  Also, due to its excessively dry nature, it is able to absorb essential oils better than other salts.  This is one of the best salts to use for aromatherapy.

Unlike the previous 2 types of salt, this particular sodium chloride is obtained not from the ocean, but rather the famed Dead Sea, a 3 million year old salt water lake.  Another key difference is the fact that Dead Sea Salt only contains 10% sodium, and the remaining 90% is comprised essential minerals including Zinc, Iodine, Potassium, Calcium and Bromides.  The effectiveness of the Dead Sea is not only due to the salt content, but also the atmosphere of the region.  You can bring to Dead Sea to your spa, however, by creating custom soaks with the salt.  Since it is so rich in minerals that the human body constantly needs to replenish, soaking treatments will provide the greatest benefits, but this salt can also be used as a scrub.  Soaking in Dead Sea Salt has been shown to help treat such issues as cellulite, water retention, itching, acne, dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, scabies, dandruff and hair loss.

Mined from deep within the largest mountain range in the world, Himalayan Salts look more like coarse gemstones than chunks of salt.  These completely pure salts were formed millions of years ago and have never been exposed  to any types of pollutants or toxins.  In addition to sodium, this salt also contains 84 trace minerals, including all 74 elements found in the human body.  Himalayan Salt is best used for hydrotherapy treatments as submersion is the most efficient way to absorb the product.  This salt has been shown to heal wounds and muscle injuries, repair skin texture and tone, combat cellulite and water retention, and even plump up the skin to fill out fine lines and wrinkles.
