Up Your Pedicure Game!

Girls always want smooth feet, right?! Especially in the summer when those sandals come out. I know this because we sold a ton of the Jelly Spa Pedi Baths last week. By the case and by the single - these items were hot like the temperature in NY. My favorite scent is the Pearl Glow... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy!

The majority of clients I've spoken with recently have been focusing on getting their clients ready to show their skin off this bathing suit season. The first benefit many are looking for in a product - hydration. They want to blast the skin full of moisture and moisture locking products.

Whether doing a specific menu item as their "Summer Spotlight Special" or designing a package treatment, check out the Hydrating Herbs by Amber Products. With ingredients such as strawberry leaves, sage, eucalyptus, lavender flower, and chamomile this not only helps heal dry, cracked skin it just feels good.

Jump start your June menu with a spotlight treatment designed to get your clients beach beautiful!

Essential Oil: Spolight on Organic Lavender

The popularity of essential oils is on the rise. Most estheticians and massage therapists have incorporated them into their treatments. Retailing them is simple, and an extra perk for your clients.

Today I want to tell you a little bit about Lavender Essential Oil, specifically
ESS® Organic Lavender High Altitude

Lavender grows at 600-1200 m altitude. The best plants, grown at 1200 m, are used to produce this exceptionally fine, high-quality Lavender. The plants for this oil are grown in the Italian Alps, near the French border. Unlike many other lavenders that have a "boiled" odor, it has a wonderfully fresh aroma, reminiscent of lavender growing wild or in gardens. Lavender is the most widely used essential oil in aromatherapy, particularly for its relaxing properties. 10 ml.

This oil has been certified as organic by the Soil Association, which means you can trace every single ingredient back to the farm where it was organically grown. Each oil is unique and fully certified to give you the highest quality possible.


Ingredients:
This is a natural Essential Oil produced by steam distillation of the bio-mass of Lavender flowers and consists of Terpenes, Terpene alcohols, and Esters - principally Linalyl Acetate.

13 Surprising Benfits of Lavender Essential Oils
  • Bug repellent
  • Sleep
  • Nervous system (migraines, headaches, depression)
  • Acne
  • Pain Relief
  • Urine Flow
  • Respiratory Disorders 
  • Hair Care
  • Cancer 
  • Blood Circulation
  • Digestion
  • Immunity
  • Skin Care

See What's New in the Voesh World!

Voesh was a big seller last week and I might know why! We got in 3 new products - Lavender, Jasmine, & Mango! Mango is definitely my new favorite (maybe only because I love the fruit). Why is Voesh so popular? Maybe it is the awesome packaging, or the great price, or maybe it is the results? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy!

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!

Essential Oils - With an Emphasis on Essential!

Ah, essential oils - probably one of my favorite spa products out there! But what makes them so great? I love how each individual oil can be used for various soothing and supposedly curative effects. While essential oils are "essential" in the sole reason that they contain the "essence" of the plant's fragrance of which they're derived from, it is important to note that different oils have different properties. Certain oils are essential for various types of aliments! Do you have enough essentials for all types of clients, especially those who receive deep tissue massages? If not, I've got you covered. See below for what I mean, and why these "essential" oils take on a whole new meaning!

Most your clients probably sit throughout the day and then cram their exercise into one quick session. This can cause excess strain on their muscles, causing spasms and inflammation. While massages definitely help to ease the pain, certain essential oils can facilitate healing as well according to an article I recently read.

Reduce Inflammation

We carry any essential oil you might need here at Pure Spa Direct. However, some are more popular than others due to their aroma and abilities to aid in soothing inflamed muscles. Peppermint is great for your clients with inflamed and overheated muscles, as it has a cooling effect. Rosemary also reduces inflammation due to its astringent properties. This can help stimulate circulation and increase blood flow to the muscles, bringing down inflammation. We have a variety of peppermint and rosemary essential oils to choose from!

Warm Muscles

While peppermint has a cooling effect, other oils have a heating effect. Juniper and ginger oils tend to warm overworked muscles. They contain natural analgesics which can help to block pain - perfect for your clients who are athletes and looking for a deep tissue massage!

Relax Muscles

Did you know that April is Stress Awareness Month? It's a good chances that your clients who are stressed out have tighter muscles. Both chamomile and lavender essential oils can help calm down your clients who are extra stressed and hold tension in their muscles. They are personally my favorite, as I love their scent.

Click here to see all of our essential oils, and stock up on what your missing to help your clients in need. They are also perfect for retailing to your clients after each session!

Relax With Lavender

Lavender is perfect for de-stressing!
In today's fast-paced, busy world, who wouldn't want to de-stress and unwind? Help your clients relax with the soothing properties of lavender. Lavender is one of the most popular aromatic scents in spa settings, and for good reason! On top of it smelling lovely, it is highly effective at relieving stress and calming down the central nervous system.

Lavender is a flowering plant cultivated in temperate climates as decorative use for gardens and landscapes. Most recently, it is commonly used as an essential oil once extracted. On top of calming and relieving tension, the scent can also be used to aide sleep and as an antiseptic oil for skin. No wonder its a favorite! It's soft purple color has also been popular in trends lately. From nail polish to hair dye, it doesn't look like it's going away anytime soon, especially with the warmer months coming up!

We here at Pure Spa Direct offer a variety of lavender products. From it's purest essential oil form all the way to lavender colored hair chalk, see below for some of my favorites!...


Lavender Essential Oil Organic / 1 oz. by Now
Your clients will love this lavender essential oil for it's soothing properties and amazing, calming scent. A big plus for me is that it's organic! Rub this in your massage pillows and before you know it, your clients will be super relaxed in seconds.

Looking to add some color to the hair products you retail? Your clients will love this new hair chalk from Color Smash! My personal favorite is the Oh La Lavender color which comes out as a pretty light purple, especially as an ombre. Zero commitment necessary!

Creating An Air of Luxury In Your Spa


When I walk into a spa or salon one of the first things I notice, aside from the decor and overall feel of the space, is how it smells. Does it smell stale or have no scent at all? Nothing enhances a client's experience like walking into a place that smells heavenly. It adds to the client's experience and can essentially make or break their mood from the start. If anything sets them off negatively when they walk in, their perception of the service they are getting can be affected.

The  Timberwick Fireplace Crackle Soy Candles are phenomenal for creating a serene and peaceful ambiance in your reception area and your treatment rooms.

The different scents available allow you to customize the candle to certain treatments or moods.

My personal favorites are the amber and cedar and lavender citrus. If your unsure of what scent will fit your style there is also the try me pack so you can experience all the possibilities.

If scents aren't your thing or you're concerned about some clients not liking a particular scent you can still take advantage of the relaxing benefits of candles! Have you noticed how many people get lost staring into a fireplace? Candles can produce the same effect!

Some great unscented candles to try include:

 Candle - Gem Tone Unscented Jar - Violet 11 oz. by Aloha Bay / 11 oz.
These candles also come in white, indigo , red , yellow, orange and green to match your rooms!

If you're concerned about having a flame for safety reasons you can always go with flame-less candles such as:
 Flameless Wax Candle / 6" x 3.25" Round / Unscented / White Color

 Flameless Candle / 4" White with Purple Flowers / Unscented by Candle Impressions by Candle Impressions 

A small investment like this can significantly enhance your clients experience and also provide an opportunity to retail the candles as well!
