Product Of The Week: CryoDerm® Magnesium Calming Cream

Happy Friday!

I was super excited when I saw this new addition to the Pure Spa Direct line up. I'm a huge fan of magnesium lotions and oils. It has helped me with migraines and muscle cramping, and I recommend it to friends regularly.

Aside from the benefits I have experienced with magneisum, CryoDerm® Magnesium Calming Cream is helpful with a multitude of things including fluid retention, calming nerves and detoxifying the body, insomnia, eczema and psoriasis. Harvested from the Dead Sea where the mineral content is at its highest containing 21 minerals, this product is amazing.

You can retail and use this in services making it an easy retail item. Offer it as an add on to a pedicure (medi pedi upgrade!), manicure, massage even as a simple hand/leg massage while a client is getting a facial. Advise they try it a few times to see the results, and have it ready to retail!

See you next Friday, have an amazing weekend!

Essential Oils - With an Emphasis on Essential!

Ah, essential oils - probably one of my favorite spa products out there! But what makes them so great? I love how each individual oil can be used for various soothing and supposedly curative effects. While essential oils are "essential" in the sole reason that they contain the "essence" of the plant's fragrance of which they're derived from, it is important to note that different oils have different properties. Certain oils are essential for various types of aliments! Do you have enough essentials for all types of clients, especially those who receive deep tissue massages? If not, I've got you covered. See below for what I mean, and why these "essential" oils take on a whole new meaning!

Most your clients probably sit throughout the day and then cram their exercise into one quick session. This can cause excess strain on their muscles, causing spasms and inflammation. While massages definitely help to ease the pain, certain essential oils can facilitate healing as well according to an article I recently read.

Reduce Inflammation

We carry any essential oil you might need here at Pure Spa Direct. However, some are more popular than others due to their aroma and abilities to aid in soothing inflamed muscles. Peppermint is great for your clients with inflamed and overheated muscles, as it has a cooling effect. Rosemary also reduces inflammation due to its astringent properties. This can help stimulate circulation and increase blood flow to the muscles, bringing down inflammation. We have a variety of peppermint and rosemary essential oils to choose from!

Warm Muscles

While peppermint has a cooling effect, other oils have a heating effect. Juniper and ginger oils tend to warm overworked muscles. They contain natural analgesics which can help to block pain - perfect for your clients who are athletes and looking for a deep tissue massage!

Relax Muscles

Did you know that April is Stress Awareness Month? It's a good chances that your clients who are stressed out have tighter muscles. Both chamomile and lavender essential oils can help calm down your clients who are extra stressed and hold tension in their muscles. They are personally my favorite, as I love their scent.

Click here to see all of our essential oils, and stock up on what your missing to help your clients in need. They are also perfect for retailing to your clients after each session!

Treat Your Skin With Sea Salts!!


Are you offering sea salts to your clients?!! If not, take a look at all these amazing benefits they offer which will have you wondering why you waited so long!!

Bath sea salts are very high natural mineral contents, including magnesium, potassium, calcium, bromine, sodium, and chloride.  These nutrients all consist of health benefits that will help promote healthy-looking, youthful skin.

Your clients will notice a difference in their skin tone:
After regular use your clients will notice their skin softer and firmer.  The magnesium found in sea salt can help eliminate fluid retention, slow down aging and calm the nervous system. The grainy texture of sea salts assist in removing dull dead skin cells to reveal a fresher, newer layer of skin.


Cleaner Pores:
One of the main components of sea salts is calcium, which helps to prevent water retention and clogged pores, as well as strengthens bones and nails. The potassium in sea salts helps to energize the skin and balance skin moisture, while sodium assists in lymphatic fluid balance.

Increased Blood Circulation:
Sea salts are alkaline-based and help to de-acidify the body and help raise pH levels. This can also assist in balancing blood sugar levels and reduce the aging rate.

Muscle Relief:
The bromide found in sea salts can help relax muscles and ease muscle stiffness. Saltwater is a common treatment for muscle aches and pains, because it naturally penetrates the pores, enters into the bloodstream and tissues, and removes lactic acid accumulations, one of the roots of post-exercise pain.

Some of the internal benefits your clients will find from sea salt soaks include:
-Reducing levels of stress
-Dealing with Insomnia
-Increasing circulation
-Expelling toxins from the body

Please take a look below at some of the sea salts we sell at Pure Spa Direct:
