Autumn Is Almost Here!

I am one of those people who is already giddy with all things pumpkin being just around the corner. There are those who say it is way too early to even talk about pumpkin and then there are those of us who wait all year long for it.

Now is a good time to think about what you would like to do with your fall menu. It's not yet crunch time where you're risking something you've been wanting to try, yet didn't have time to think on it, and it's now it's now in the season, and unavailable at the last second.

Looking for something a other than the standard pumpkin? Check out the Green Apple Brightening Collagen Mask or If you're not looking to change anything up to the menu, don't forget to think about your space! Some different color linens or towels for the season or even some different organic tea that is delicious!

Fall Menu Secret Weapon: Clove Essential Oil

We all know that pumpkin and cranberry are the sought after fall scents, flavor and menu items. If you are looking for a little something different to infuse some fall menu, take a look at clove essential oil.

Personally, the smell of clove always has a warm, comfort feeling to it. That little spice in fall foods that adds that something extra.  As an essential oil, it can bring about comforting memories or feelings of warmth,comfort and peace making it an excellent choice to add in to everything from massage oils, aromatherapy showers to pedicures.

It also blends well with citrus scents and not a lot is needed to achieve the full effect!

Out With The New, In With The Old!

Looking to not only keep up with what is trending, but to surpass your competition? 

Does you menu only showcase what is up and coming? Do you have a a solid foundation of tried and true treatments? Many of the spa owners I've spoken with lately, are trying to get the perfect mix of both.

Himalayan salt has been a trending topic for some time, but with old roots. The ancient secret, no longer so secret, has been proven to aid in respiratory issues, blood sugar, energy levels, sinus issues and more....much more.
While retailing salt lamps is a wise choice, have you thought about offering full body salt treatments?  Not just scrubs or soaks with Himalayan salt, thinking bigger...think bolder (think profit and reputation!)!

From a Himalayan Salt Table that provides the benefit of direct skin contact with perfectly-warmed salt, without any worry about sanitization, to a salt booth all the way to an entire custom built salt room or cave of your own. Read that again, a custom built salt room or cave of your own. How many businesses in your area are boasting that?

If you'd like to take your business to the next level, give us a call at 800-434-0018 to set up a salt room consultation!

Waterproof Treatment Table?

One of my favorite things is discussing with clients their menu options (you didn't think we're just order takers, right? We live for this industry!) and bringing new treatments in.

Over the years, many clients have held back from offering treatments that involve mud or water, if they don't have a wet table and vichy shower (want to bring those in? click here to check out financing!) for mess concerns. While the Lotus Touch Seaweed Gel Wrap is a phenomenal option (seriously, check out this post for why it's a #1 choice for many small businesses looking for big profit with no mess), for clients looking to expand into things like muds, there's another solution!

The Waterproof Spa Treatment Sheet Set is just the thing needed to crush it this season with body wraps! It not only keeps moisture out, it's also machine washable! The set includes a fitted sheet and face cradle cover, and did I mention it's under $20? For less than $20 you can transform your treatment table into a body wrap sanctuary!

Not sure what mud to start with? Here are some top favorites from our clients all across the globe:

Raw Alaska Glacial Mineral Mud - this is my all time favorite mud. The quality is unparalleled, you can choose from powder or pre-mixed, and there are retail items to boost sales even more. It also happens to be the most mineral rich mud on the market. Want to know more? Click here for more on how and why you should consider this line.

Moor Mud - this was my favorite mud before I tried the Alaska mud. While the options don't include lavender or peppermint like the Alaska mud, take a look at this as well!

Sedona Mud - this is a red mud that one of our 5 star resort clients has on hand at all times. The one they prefer is this one by Spa Pantry, their clients love the scent!

European Rose Body Mud - Nourish + Moisturize + Heal + Replenish by Biotone- I used this in my massage practice and it was a client favorite. A cream based mud with hydrating oils like sunflower and avocado, this leaves the skin feeling silky smooth

Take a look at all of the different body wrap options here, after adding the waterproof treatment table to your cart!

Not sure what else you need to get started now that you've got a waterproof table? Give us a call or shoot me an email (christine@purespadirect.com) and I'd be happy to help!
