Pamper Your Clients with a Warm Honey Manicure!

I love seeing different and unique menu options in spas and salons. The staples obviously are great but having a few different options that clients won't expect is a great way to keep them interested - and telling their friends.

Here is one I came across while reading something recently that would be great going into the winter months. It's excellent for dry and overworked hands!

Warm Honey Manicure (treatment takes about 45 minutes)
*Prepare the treatment prior to the client's arrival*

Soak
In a manicure bowl, stir together 1/2 teaspoon of Honey Powder with 1 cup of warm water and 4 drops of tangerine essential oil.

Scrub
In a rubber mixing bowl, combine 2 teaspoons of Organic Sucanat Sugar, 1/4 teaspoon Clove Powder and 1/4 teaspoon Ginger Root Powder. Add in 2 teaspoons Organic Sunflower Carrier Oil and 4 drops tangerine essential oil. Mix well and place into a mud warmer or hot towel cabinet.

Masque
Mix together 2 tablespoons White Clay Powder, 1 teaspoon Honey Powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of Clove Powder. Add in 2 teaspoons of warm water and 4 drops of tangerine essential oil. Mix well and place into a mud warmer or hot towel cabinet.

Moisturizer-
In a rubber mixing bowl, combine 1 teaspoon whipped shea butter and 3 drops tangerine essential oil. Mix well and place into a mud warmer or hot towel cabinet.


After cleansing the hands, allow clients to soak for 2-5 minutes. Apply the scrub to one hand and arm up to the elbow. Pay extra attention to the elbows and palms while massaging the scrub into the skin. Remove excess scrub with warm damp towels and repeat on the other arm.

Apply the masque to the hands and arms up to the elbow. Place the clients hands in a liner and into electric mitts and leave on for 5-7 minutes. Remove the mitts, cut the tips of the liner off so you can prep the nails while having the masque on the client to enhance the softening! Once you've prepped the nails, remove the liners and any excess masque. Massage the moisturizer into the skin and finish the nails as you normally would.

Make the experience extra special by offering honey flavored treats and herbal teas!

Super Softening Foot Treatment

People's feet take a daily beating, no matter what industry you work in. Whether due to those fabulous high heels worn for work, or the constant running around between work, school, kids, life, I doubt there are many who would turn down a foot rub or pampering pedicure if offered! Flip flops, barefoot walks, sand & surf...our feet go through even more stress during the summer months, and could use some extra love!



Here is an awesome recipe for a Lavender & Sage Softening Foot Treatment that will leave your client's skin baby soft!

Soak client's feet in your favorite pedicure bowl/pedicure spa
Follow by adding a few drops of Clarly Sage Essential Oil and Lavender Essential Oil / by Now to a bowl of Desert Mineral Detox Body Scrub by Extended Vacation. Slowly massage the scrub into the feet for a few minutes, then remove with warm towels (make sure you have enough fresh clean towels on hand!).You can also rinse them off in the pedicure bowl, or use a spray bottle with warm water and towels. Once clean and dry, massage the feet using Lavender /Orange/Clary Sage by Biotone and follow with your regular pedicure procedure.

Don't forget to have plenty of new polish choices, files, buffers and pedicure slippers on hand for all of your clients!

Packaged Luxury.....Did Someone Say Caviar Mask??!


This Caviar Collagen Mask will revitalize, increase firmness and fill in those wrinkles your clients just want to see disappear! They will immediately notice those unwanted lines and wrinkles appearing plumped! Their skin will look re-textured, appear brighter and more even toned!!

They will feel truly luxurious and it is something they will always look forward to...especially if you provide them with this treatment, after they've had a long week.

You apply it to dry skin, rubbing in circular motions to release the beads and then you leave it for 7-10 minutes to work the rest of it’s MAGIC before removing with warm water.  Never before will your client's have  felt their skin so silky smooth.....almost softer than a baby’s bum ;-) Your client's complexion in general will appear clearer, brighter and with a more even skin-tone. 

And for this price, it just cannot get any better! It is totally justified with the results it will give your client's!

Collagen Caviar has outstanding hydration characteristics- so go on....nourish their thirsty skin :)

Dress Your Clients in Luxury with the Boca Terry Spa Collection!

From the consumer perspective, I think I can speak for everyone by saying that we all enjoy being pampered and getting dressing up in nice and comfortable clothing.

As a service provider, making your clients feel comfortable and relaxed should be the ultimate goal. For that reason, when it comes to spa apparel and accessories you should choose Boca Terry. Known for quality, comfort, and durability at great prices, their wide collection includes an assortment of luxurious Bathrobes, Organic Bathrobes, Wraps, Slippers, Towels, Blankets, Lounge Chair Covers, and Spa Headbands.
When I went to get a massage recently they handed me a microfiber wrap that I fell in love with. I immediately checked the tag and it was the Women's Microfiber Spa Wrap in Ecru by Boca Terry. I have now purchased one for myself, and absolutely adore it!

I highly recommend checking out the Bathrobe Collection for the up-coming Winter months. Having to get undressed can be uncomfortable and chilly, especially if you are like me, and are always cold. If I must remove my clothes, please give me something to snuggle in, and to keep me warm and cozy throughout my entire treatment.

Please remember when purchasing Spa Apparel, to consider purchasing multiple sizes to comfort all body shapes. Check out Adrienne’s blog "One Size Fits All" - The Misconception About Spa and Salon Apparel, which is very helpful on the topic.

*Bonus: Boca Terry items can personalized with your own company logo.
