Product Of The Week: Santa Barbara Massage Cream

Happy Friday! Hope everyone has been having a busy week!

This week's featured product is one of my favorites, Santa Barbara Massage Cream

Massage Therapist tend to be picky about what medium they use for massage whether it be oil, lotion, cream or gel. Personally, I've never been a fan of oil and only used lotion in school and in my own practice. When I received a gift of each scent of their line, I was immediately hooked. They smell WONDERFUL!

Made from olive oil, beeswax and coconut oil, it melts with body heat. With just the right amount of glide, this is phenomenal for both deep tissue without being too greasy, as well as silky enough for Swedish massage. It's an all-natural alternative for clients and therapists who prefer a more natural approach.

Add in the benefits of specific essential oils, you can customize for your clients. Available in Ylang Ylang & Orange, Clary Sage & Lavender, Eucalyptus, Lavender - and there is an unscented for sensitive clients or those who simply don't like scented products.

Try out an 8oz size to try for yourself, you'll be surprised how a little goes quite a long way! The smaller sizes also make great retail items!

Have an amazing weekend!

Massage On The Go?

Many of the mobile LMT's I've spoken with, have all had one major thing in common - ease of transport. I used to pop my table in the back of my car along with a bag full of linens, lotion, music, clock and more. I wanted to be sure I had everything my room had (minus the hot towel cabi!) to give the best possible on site table massage. The thing I hear the MOST, is how they need an easy to transport stool.

This is where my favorite manufacturer of massage products, Earthlite, comes in with the perfect solution. The Folding Massage Stool to match your table. Easy to transport and as durable as any Earthlite table or chair. All for under $100!

No more kneeling, squatting or asking clients for something to sit on!

This hand cream provides immediate relief to chapped and dry winter skin. It's also non-oily, and made with vitamin B and essential oils which softens skin and provides all-day protection - a necessity during the the upcoming colder months!

New Organic Massage Oil And Vegan Lotion!

It's great to see so many companies adding in more organic, natural and even vegan products! I get excited every time we add a new one. I was super excited to see the new certified organic massage oil and vegan lotion.

I speak with clients every day who are concerned with the ingredients they are using on themselves and their clients. Sacred Earth has always had a strong line of products and this is a great addition!

The oils are USDA certified and concentrated so you don't need a lot to go a long way! They are also a lighter oil that allows you to do effleurage and deep work which is always nice.

The vegan lotions are  certified by the Vegan Awareness Foundation (Vegan Action) and contain USDA NOP Certified ingredients. Hypo-allergenic and full of organic polyunsaturated oils and organic botanical extracts this is sure to become a favorite!

Check them all out!

Sacred Earth Certified Organic Oils
Sacred Earth Vegan Lotion

Be sure to have the certified organic arnica salve and muscle rub on hand as well. Great for use in services and even better for retail!

New Vegan Offerings for Your Spa!

Do you have animal loving vegan clients who are extremely conscientious towards their beliefs? Vegans are not only concerned about the the food they put into their mouths - product ingredients are equally as important! As an animal lover and vegetarian, I definitely believe in the importance of vegan, cruelty-free products. There is a huge market for it as well! Veganism and the Animal Rights Movement in general are most certainly peaking, and more and more companies are incorporating vegan products into their lines.

Is your spa vegan friendly? Why not incorporate products into your spa for your animal loving clients?! I have just the line for you! Here at Pure Spa Direct, we just got in Sacred Earth products that are vegan (and I couldn't be more excited)! Check them out below!




Our SacredEarth Botanicals' Massage Lotion is light, vegan, and provides excellent absorption! It is rich in organic polyunsaturated oils and organic botanical extracts for a calming, therapeutic experience for the client. Unscented, hypo-allergenic, vegan.. your clients are going to love it! The best part is that it comes in a retail size that your clients can take home with them.





A great product you can retail to your clients is Sacred Earth's Organic Arnica Body Salve! They are super adorable and small enough to place in a purse or a pocket. These body salves provide an easy, on-the-go aid for continued therapy in the comfort of their own home!






Why not add a Vegan Pedicure to your spa menu?! The Sacred Earth Botanicals Foot Cream was formulated to bring relief to dry and achy feet and legs by increasing blood flow and promoting healing using a custom blend of organic essential oils and extracts. The peppermint scent is very therapeutic and soothing as well.





SacredEarth Botanicals Certified Organic Herbal Infusions have actually been handcrafted using the cold infusion method. The process takes organically grown herbal material and soaks them in organic sunflower oil. The blend then sits for months at a time, allowing for the release of it's therapeutic constituents to be suspended in the oil. You can enhance your client's experience with these soothing aromas! They are certified organic and, of course, vegan!

Not Just A Candle! Earthly Body Candles Work Triple Time

Are you in need of new candles for your spa? How about some massage oils, as well? Maybe you need to replenish your moisturizers, too. In need of all three?! I have just the product for your spa! I'm a huge fan of candles, and was excited to see that we have candles that aren't just meant for lightening and scent.

Our Earthly Body Candles TRIPLE as a candle, massage oil, and even moisturizer! That's my type of product! The best part is they come in a variety of delicious scents (Dreamsicle is my favorite)! These 100% soy based natural candles are environmentally friendly and petroleum free, as well as vegan. The best part is they last 50% longer than your traditional wax candles. 

How do they work as a massage lotion and moisturizer, you ask? It's actually quite simple: A tiny spoon is included inside, and you pour the liquid that forms within the candle once it burns, into the spoon and onto your hand. While it may seen awkward to pour hot candle wax onto your body, please keep in mind that soy wax burns much cooler than paraffin wax. In fact, this soy candle with essential oils — including hemp seed oil — burns at only 2 degrees warmer than your body temperature (fun fact)!



Click here to see all of our Earthly Body Candles. They also make great retail products - I guarantee your clients will love them :)

Sleeping Beauty

It's no secret that the best and most natural way to enhance your beauty happens at night: beauty sleep!

There's good reason as to why's it's called beauty sleep. While you're at rest, your body is working hard to repair and restore your body. How does this benefit your beauty? Your skin cells turnover and heal, resulting in glowing skin and healthier hair. 

Do you offer your clients products for overnight use? Not sure where to begin? There are many ways to enhance your customers' already natural beauty regimen of a good night's rest! See below for the products we recommend here at Pure Spa Direct:



Eyes

Our eye cream from Oxygen Botanicals is perfect for your clients to use at night. Its key ingredients include Japanese Green Tea Extract, Chamomile Extract, Sweet Almond Oil, and Vitamin A, which are perfect for maintaining skin elasticity around the delicate areas of the eyes. With brighter, moisturized skin around the eyes, your clients will look more awake and beautiful! This cream can also minimize fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles. Perfect for AM use as well!





Body

Hands and feet are often neglected in an overnight routine, considering they are a couple our most used body parts! It is essential to keep them moisturized for beautifying and anti-aging purposes. Our Intensive Age Defying Hydrating Hand and Foot Cream by June Jacobs Spa Collection is a great cream for your customers to add to their nightly moisturizing routine. They are perfect for retailing (bonus points for being paraban free)!






Hair

An easy way to keep your customers' hair moisturized and soft is to use a leave in conditioner at night. Our Onesta Quench Leave-In Conditioner is made with all natural ingredients and certified organic extracts of linden, goldenseal, and orchid. Have them apply this to dry hair at night, and throw over a hair cap for a simple and easy overnight conditioning treatment!

Get Au Naturale with Hemp! Wait... Hemp?!

You have most likely heard of this herb, but what's all the rage about?!.. and yes, we are referring to the legal kind!

Hemp seed oil has been all the rage lately. It is one of the newest seeds to infiltrate the organic and all-natural market. Let's face it...more and more clients are looking for alternative treatments, especially organic and all-natural products. Add variety to your spa or salon with this earthy seed!

What is exactly is hemp?!

Technically speaking, hemp is a seed which can also be cold-pressed to form an oil. Hemp oil is a highly nutritious oil, featuring the same omega-6 to omega-3 balance the human body requires. Due to its high concentrate of fatty acids, hemp oil is excellent for use in almost any beauty care product, including creams, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, lip balms, and more.

And how exactly does all of this benefit your clients?!

Hemp seed oil is amazing for healthy skin, nails, and hair because of its high nutritional value, as well as abundance in vitamin E, which is also essential for skin, nail, and hair health. Hemp also contains high amounts of zinc, another mineral that helps provide that natural, healthy glowing skin and hair!

Here at PureSpa Direct, we take pride in offering all natural alternatives your clients may be looking for. Your eco-friendly, all natural organic loving client will love these products we offer by Hempz:

Herbal Body Moisturizer - Fresh Coconut & Watermelon 

Re-hydrate your client's with dry skin with this super nourishing and moisturizing body lotion!












Hempz Sugar Body Scrub

Has the winter taken a toll on your clients' skin? Exfoliate those rough patches with this lovely sugar scrub, and boost your profits with another retail item!



Hempz Lip Balm

Who doesn't love lip balm?! I definitely get excited when I see a new lip balm flavor on the market, and need to try it even if it's completely out of the norm! Extend some variety in your client's lip balm flavors by adding this herbal citrus hemp seed oil balm to your spa or salon!

Warm Lotion....Yes, Please!

Maybe it's the snow and sleet falling outside my window, but my brain is occupied with all things warm right now.

When you have a client all nice and comfortable on your table, ready to melt away from the massage you are about to give, the last thing you want is to shock them with cold lotion. If the lotion is colder than their body temperature, at the very least it's going to startle them...which could slow and even prevent full relaxation.

Why chance it when you can get a lotion warmer?!?

Seriously, who doesn't like warm lotion in the winter?

There are warmers that hold from 1-5 bottles at a time so you never have to worry about having cold lotion again!

Check out the most popular ones:

Neo-Spa Bottle Warmer
Stainless Steel Bottle Warmers 
Pure-Gel 3 Bottle Electric Lotion Warmer 
Pure-Gel 5 Bottle Electric Lotion Warmer
Electric Lotion Warmer 
Electric Lotion Warmer Holds 2- 8oz Bottle
Electric Lotion Warmer Holds 3 - 8 oz. Bottles
Electric Lotion Warmer Holds 4 - 8 oz. Bottles


Don't shock your client's into only coming in when it's warm!!! Have warm lotion ready to help them melt away at your fingertips!

Biotone Takes The Guesswork Out Of Aromatherapy!

It's easy to offer Aromatherapy Massage
with Biotone's NEW Aromatherapy line!
When I was in school for massage therapy, there weren't as many options available for what we used as there are now. There were really just the stand by of regular lotion, cream, gel and oil with nothing overly fancy or unique.There are countless options available these days which is a beautiful thing, but it can be overwhelming at times.

Biotone is a household name among massage therapists. It's what every school I looked at before enrolling was using and every just-graduated therapist who I talk to still tell me it's what they trained with.

The Biotone line is extensive to say the least, and it is always growing. We recently added the aromatherapy lotion line, and it's been nothing short of a home run. Combining essential oils for specific purposes (and catchy names to remember them by) with luxurious butters and oils, this may be one of their most popular lines yet. Take a look:

Aromatherapy Massage Lotion - Serenity / Lavender + Orange + Clary Sage  ( I can't wait to try this! Clary Sage has always been a favorite of my clients)
Aromatherapy Massage Lotion - Bliss / Bergamont + Rosewood + Sweet Orange ( if you've ever smelled bergamont, you'll know why this one is named bliss!)

There you have it...no more wondering what oils to add to lotions or messing around with the amounts! All you need is a pump and some bottles!

An Organic Massage Product To Make Your Clients Ooh and Aah

More and more people are requesting products that are all natural or organic, especially when it comes to things that are absorbed into their skin.

There are different reasons people request organic products such as:
  • Sensitive Skin Issues
  • Earth Friendly Reasons
  • Prior experience
  • Health Benefits
One of my favorite organic massage product lines is from Lotus Touch. I had tried other organic lines before and some didn't have the right glide, some were too greasy, while others were absorbing too quickly. A friend recommended I try the Lotus Touch Organic Naturals Massage Kit. At such an affordable price I couldn't pass up giving it a shot. I prefer working with cream or lotion rather than oil but do have a few clients who prefer oil so this kit was perfect. 

I was pleasantly surprised at how well this product worked. The glide was perfect; I was able to do both light and deep work easily with a small amount of lotion/oil. It had the right amount of absorption where the client felt the luxurious feel of the lotion while I still had optimal control and there was no greasy excess.

I used it on a few of my repeat clients who were used to my regular lotion and they were in love. In most cases, after having used the Lotus Touch Organic Naturals, they wanted it as their regular.

Another great aspect of this line is that they are not only certified organic and paraben free, they also contain no nut oils - a strong concern for anyone with even a slight nut allergy.
