  • Easy to use

Now for some of our clients favorite tools:

Foot Rubz - For less than $7.00, you have a tiny powerful ball of relief. This is an easy retail item! Leave a few testers out, use them in a service and place a container at the reception counter!

Butter Your Clients Up With Shea Butter

Looking to tighten up your spending, without sacrificing anything in your services? When was the last time you took a look at shea butter?

Did you just go, "oooh shea butter, I used to use/love that a few years ago"? You're not alone! The secret weapon of some savvy spas for years has been shea butter.

Chock full of oleic acid, a super hydrating fatty acid, shea butter should be in every room, station and on every trolley. It's also one of the most versatile products I can think of, as it can be used in almost any service. Use it an add on to any service you offer, it is great for retailing, and can be used as a carrier base for essential oils.

Clients with sensitive skin? Shea butter is gentle enough for even acne prone clients.

Not sure what services it can be easily incorporated in to? Here are a few to get your thoughts moving like butter:

Hair: can be used in/as a hair mask, can be used as an add on for a scalp massage (give clients a choice of essential oil to add in as well) to any other service

Massage: can be used as a carrier for essential oils, blends well with other oils like coconut and jojoba for a ridiculously luxurious feel.

Facials: helps promote elasticity, helps fade age spots and of course, it's been rumored to be a favorite of Cleopatra to keep her skin looking young and glowing

Body Treatments: slather this on your clients with a mylar blanket for a heavenly body wrap, use after a body scrub or dry brushing treatment, mix in an abrasive of your choice (salt, sugar, raw ingredients etc) for a cost effective and hydrating scrub

Nails: you can use this as a lotion or add in sugar or salt for a scrub

Sometimes the simplest of things can have the biggest impact for your clients, and your bottom line. Shea butter is high on that list!

Take Your Shampoo To The Next Level With A Massaging Backwash!

Most people I've talked to all love getting their hair washed at the salon. Sometimes sitting in the chair while someone massages your head is just what you need to recharge and re energize.

One thing I have heard mentioned is how people wish the shampoo chairs can feel stiff or uncomfortable on their lower back. If you or your clients have ever mentioned not being comfortable, or you'd like to avoid the chance at all, take a look at the DIR Alpine Shampoo Backwash Unit - Massage With Electrical Leg Rest. 

With high density memory foam with high grade soft vinyl, this chair provides superior comfort from the start! Add in the roller-ball Shiatsu massage on the back, vibrating seat and leg-rest massage along with an electrical footrest and you've transformed your backwash unit to a heavenly seat of relaxation! The massage functions are controlled by an easy to use remote, no need to worry about fumbling around for on/off switches! You can also add on the vacuum and hair trap if needed for an additional amount! This throne also has plumbing access for both backwash or side-wash setups.

Your clients will be amazed at the level of care you put in to be sure they are feeling maximum comfort at all times!

The Mother Of Massage Tables - Nuage Vector™ +Studio by Living Earth Crafts!!!

When I started massage school many moons ago, I would have never dreamed up a table better than the Nuage Vector™ +Studio by Living Earth Crafts!

The quality of the Living Earth Crafts line is unparalleled and this table is no exception!

With so many options to choose from for color, cushioning, width and even a face cradle with sound, you're basically building your dream table. Now for the truly awesome features of this table....

It's all electric which, if you're used to having wooden knob adjustments to raise/lower your table - you'll adore this! 

It has chroma therapy lighting - if you're not familiar with this, I highly suggest checking it out. The use of colored lighting has been shown to be helpful with relaxation.

My favorite feature is the embedded digital table warmer. I'll say it again, it has a built-in digital table warmer. No more annoying cords to stumble over or table warmers bunching up anywhere.

A few more unique features include acoustic resonance, embedded Bluetooth® stereo speakers, Apple iPad® control system, meditative nature journeys—seriously, there isn't anything else you need on a table to offer an amazing experience to every single client. 

If you're looking to take your business to the next level, you've found it!

Don't forget you can finance equipment and furniture so you can keep your cash flow flowing!

Here are two perfect massage oils for soothing your clients holiday stress!

Option 1:
In a dark (amber or blue work great!) glass bottle, mix 3 drops of rosemary essential oil and 3 drops of cinnamon essential oil with 1/4 cup of grapeseed oil or any carrier oil you prefer (coconut oil is always a best seller!). Put the lid on the bottle and shake well. It's as easy as that!

Option 2:
In a dark bottle, mix 4 drops of spruce essential oil, 3 drops of eucalyptus oil with 1/4 cup of carrier oil. Put the lid on and mix well. This is a super popular mix this time of year!

Healthy Hair The Natual Way!

The natural movement in skin care is no secret these days. I speak with clients all over the world who tell me how concerned their clients are with ingredients and environmentally friendly treatments.

While many are focused on skin care/body treatments, there are also options for hair care! From creating your own oils for scalp massage to actual hair treatments, there are many natural options to excite your clients!

Here are some ingredient ideas to get you started:

Calendula flowers are awesome as a scalp treatment! Calendula helps calm irritated and/or sensitive scalps! Infuse a carrier oil with the flowers for a great scalp massage!

Dandelion Leaves work well for relief from dandruff and dry hair.

Ginger is excellent in a hair mask and/or scalp massage as it helps to stimulate hair growth. It also adds a little pep to the treatment!

Lemon Balm is great for clients with oily hair. It has mild astringent properties that help balance oil production.

Nettle is an all purpose hair herb - it helps with preventing hair loss, stimulates the scalp, helps with dandruff, split ends and helps with shine!

Rose Hips are chock full of vitamin c making them an excellent choice for strengthening hair

If you'd rather not make your own, take a look at the hair oil line from Organic Fiji!

Hot & Spicy Scrub!

Just in time for the cooler fall weather, here's a treatment recipe to indulge your client's senses!

Hot & Spicy Scrub 
(I'm confident you'll have a more creative name!)

In a rubber mixing bowl, mix 1/4 cup Sucanat Sugar with 1/2 teaspoon of  Ginger Root Powder. Add 6 teaspoons of Grapeseed Oil and 6 drops of cinnamon essential oil and mix well. Place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or a large stainless bowl of how water.

Start off the treatment with dry brushing (include it in the price of the treatment, or offer it as an add-on beneficial treatment!)  and apply the scrub according to your regular protocol (don't forget to wrap the client in plastic wrap and cover with a thermal blanket to increase the effects!). Leave on for about 15 - 20 minutes. This is the perfect time for an add-on scalp massage! Little touches like an herbal eye pack or cool pack will stand out to your clients as well. Remove the blankets and sheeting and have the client shower if you do not yet have a Vichy shower. You can also use warm damp towels and a spray bottle to remove.

Be sure to have some hot apple cider or tea on hand to complete the experience!

Easy Fall Add On -> Dry Brushing!

Exfoliation should be an integral part of your clients skin care routine however, not all clients heed your advice or remember it!

By simply offering a dry brush add to your massage services, you can increase profits, ensure your clients skin is properly exfoliated and take their massage experience to a new level - all for under $5!

If you haven't dry brushed before a massage yet - try it. It's easy to explain the benefits however, it's effortless to convey how amazing it felt once you've tried it. If a client can sense/feel through you how much of a difference YOU felt, they will quickly ask to try it. Heck, you can even offer the first one complimentary to get them hooked!

They will be amazed at how relaxing the dry brushing feels itself, followed by how luxurious the oil/lotion feels going on after! I highly recommend a whipped butter!

Just Getting Started On Your New Business? We Can Help!


Are you a new Spa or Beauty Business Owner just getting started? You probably plan on opening in about 6 months, or maybe even 1 month if you're feeling ambitious! I know, I know... it could go from being the most exciting endeavor in the world, to simultaneously feeling like you're overwhelmed and don't even know where to begin. Well, you definitely came to the right place! We help future business owners like yourself gather everything they need for their new business each and everyday!

I recently helped a new client gather everything she needed for her spa. This was one year in the making, too! She contacted me last August, mentioning that she was planning on opening up her brand new spa in a few months. She sent me a complete list of everything she intended on ordering - everything from Facial Beds for her treatment rooms, to trolleys, steamers, and even massage oils, and waxing sticks. I was excited to help her on her new endeavor! I noticed a few items were missing, such as pre-and post wax oils, and even made recommendations on new treatments that she should incorporate, like lash and brow tint to jump start her business and keep up with her client's needs. I helped her finalize her list, and ensured she had everything she needed to get started on this exciting (yet slightly stressful) new venture!

Upon completion of her list, which - keep in mind - was a little under three weeks before her opening, I processed the order for her, and made her feel at ease that all of the supplies she ordered were in stock, and will get to her exactly when she needed them by - an essential for every business owner! She's been back to place follow up orders, and her spa has been very successful since.

If you're a new business owner and feeling anxious about gathering everything you need, please contact us. We have everything you need, and we are happy to help!

Grow Your Business With Pure Spa Direct!

One of the things I love most about what we do here at Pure Spa Direct, is helping our clients build and update their businesses - whether it's a client just starting out who needs help with everything from floor to ceiling and front to back or a client looking to update the look and/or feel of the business.

I recently helped a client, who had been ordering her daily supplies and retail items with us for years, update the entire look of her salon. From her reception furniture and decor, right through to upgrading her aging equipment. She didn't realize all of the equipment and furniture we had in addition to her supplies! We went through what she was looking to achieve in her business, and consolidated some equipment into multi-function units. This way, she saved space and increased the services she was able to offer. She had no idea that we offered financing as well! She was able to update her salon, increase the amount of services (and profits!) she could offer all while keeping her cash flow positive. 

We are not simply a supplier, we are here to help achieve your dreams, visions and goals for your business and clients! It's what we live for!
