What's That Smell? Lavender in Your Day Spa

Of all of the essential oils out there, there is one that stands out from the rest in regards to versatility: Lavender.

I know many of us automatically associate lavender with calming, relaxing, and aiding in sleep, but lavender is really a wonderful plant, which creates a truly amazing essential oil, that can be incorporated into so many treatments in your day spa.

As we have discussed before, scents and smells really round out any spa experience, and lavender is such a comforting, relaxing scent to so many people. If someone new to the industry asked me what the #1 essential oil they should have available, my response would unequivocally would be lavender. However, did you know that it does so much more than relaxes?

Lavender Properties:

  • Anti-Bacterial
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Wound-Healing
  • Rejuvenating aging skin
  • Analgesic
  • Regulating / Calming
  • Stress Reducing
  • And more!
Uses in Your Spa:
  • Incorporate lavender into your scalp massages to alleviate sinus pressure and headaches
  • Add a few drops of lavender essential oil to your massage lotion to aid clients with skin irritations
  • Lavender oil in massage lotion helps ease muscle and joint pain
  • Provide warm lavender towels to your clients in your relaxation room
  • Incorporate lavender oil into your facials to rejuvenate aging skin
If you are uncomfortable using essential oils and creating your own blends, opting to have a lavender scented massage oil or cream, pedicure lotion, paraffin, or face mask is a good place to start!

Cool Wax: The No Temp Wax for Heat-Sensitive Clients

When it comes to waxing, the fact of the matter is that most people do not like having a warm/hot, sticky substance applied to their bodies. For Bikini and Brazilian waxing especially, many women (and men!) avoid the salon altogether because they cannot endure even the notion of hot depilatory wax on their sensitive bits.



A great option to have available for your more squeamish clients is the Cool Wax Brand. This wax requires no heating or preparation - Just open up and go! In addition, the main ingredient is sugar, so Cool Wax is both Rosin and Honey free. This product comes in 4 yummy scents, including Cucumber, Vanilla, Lavender and Mandarin, all of which can have soothing properties through aromatherapy.

Lastly, don't forget about Pre- and Post-Depilatory products, including Cool Clean and Cool Soothe. Cool Clean helps prepare your clients skin and Cool Soothe helps ease any redness or discomfort after the service.

Add the Cool Wax products to your Depilatory Supply today so as to reach more client and, therefore, Increase Profits!

**Insiders Tip** This wax is best for coarse and thick hair.
