Facial Oil - The Winter Skin Saver!

Depending on your location, dry winter skin can be a concern for your clients. Do you have clients who suffer from dry, itchy, red or irritated skin from cold, wind and other weather situations?

Retailing something as simple as a facial oil can be a lifesaver for your clients in between services. Adding them in as an option to a facial or massage service can be a great way to introduce the benefits of facial oil to your clients as well!

From using a carrier oil and adding essential oils for a customized facial massage or your own special signature blend to a variety of prepackaged oils, it can easily be incorporated into your line up!

CND Solar Oil is Hot!

CND Solar Oil was very popular last week. These oils come in all different shapes and sizes. I know my wife uses solar oil because she leaves it in the bathroom everyday! I like the 40 pack display the best - easy to retail... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great CND Solar Oil selection HERE!

Massage Oil: Warm or Cold?

Personally, the feeling of warmed massage oil is one of my favorite things. As a massage therapist with perpetually cold hands, having warmed oil was a need. There is nothing worse for a therapist and the client, than a cold hand to start the massage. It's startling to the client and kills the relaxation process before it starts.

Something as simple as an bottle warmer like the ProMaster Massage Oil & Lotion Warmer can make all the difference in the world clients. Even if you don't suffer from cold hands, many clients will simply love the feel of warm oil on their skin!

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.

Do you change your fall menu options from year to year?  Do you have client favorites that would probably result in a riot if you ever changed 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.

From delicious smelling cinnamon and clove essential oils, pumpkin spice massage oil to pumpkin peels, your fall fans may be drooling at your door. 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!

Tropical Getaway With Organic Fiji Products

Maybe it's the 14 inches of Spring snow that just hit us here in NY, but my head is filling with thoughts of tropical islands. For now, Organic Fiji fits the bill!

Hot Oil Massage? Yes Please!

Maybe it's the weather here in NY starting to get a bit colder, all I can think of is getting a massage from a therapist who uses warm oil or lotion.  It struck me, even as a massage therapist, that my brain automatically went to thinking of therapists who warm their oil, rather than just thinking "I'm going to get a massage".

Something as simple as a bottle warmer can make the difference for your clients. You don't necessarily have to use it with every client, if you aren't a fan of working with warmed oil/lotion. Having it as an option however, may be a great investment. It may just be the tipping point for clients choosing your services or your competitor.

There are many options and styles to choose from to fit any budget!

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!

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!

Oh Honey, Honey

Honey is unlike any other ingredient in nature and has yet to be synthesized in a chemistry lab! This rich, wonderfully scented Midnight Honey Bath and Beauty Oil is an inspired preparation --true, elegant, and complex in its ability to deeply condition the skin, while restoring suppleness and unleashing the senses.

NEW! Farmaesthetics Bath and Beauty Oil - Midnight Honey / 7 oz.

INSPIRATION:
Nature's most mysterious elixir... honey is unlike any other ingredient in nature and has yet to be synthesized in a chemistry lab! Farmaesthetics' richly round, darkly-scented Midnight Honey Bath and Beauty Oil, is an inspired preparation – true, elegant, and complex in its ability to deeply condition the skin, while restoring suppleness and unleashing the senses. Use in massage, bath, shower, or as a beauty oil for spot treating dry or patchy areas of skin. Apply after bathing when body is still damp, to wrap the skin in rich, warm moisture. (For external use only even though it smells good enough to eat!)

Arnica:
Arnica is highly regarded in herbalism for its ability to diminish bruising and swelling in skin tissue. Arnica has a complex chemistry, but simply put, the herb works to affect the blood vessels so that there is rapid reduction of inflammation, the kind associated with injured tissue. A capful used in external massage or in a warm bath soak, is a simple, effective way to introduce Arnica into the system, while at the same time conditioning the skin & improving circulation. Dermatologists are now recognizing the many benefits of Arnica for patients following laser or plastic surgery.

Applications & Benefits:
Luscious, herbal massage oil for moisturizing and conditioning the whole body complexion.
Luxurious and emollient when used in the bath or applied after shower as body oil.
Great for use in full body massage, having lots of "slip" for easy application and a heady honey scent that releases with friction of massage.
Best applied on damp, warm skin.
Soy has the added benefits of phytoestrogens, said to have balancing effects on irregular hormonal activities.

AS USED IN PROFESSIONAL TREATMENTS:

  • Use as a deep conditioning massage oil for body.
  • Use in Farmaesthetics Cornmeal Scrub treatments.
  • Use in bath to release emollient benefits of soy oil and honey absolute.

Key Ingredients:
Soy Oil: One of the high-grade, cosmetic grade carrier oils. Especially chosen for its softening, uncomplicated chemistry... light enough for massage, yet safe for those with nut allergies. Very emollient and soothing to the skin.
Honey Absolute: Whether in absolute form, used for its rich round scent to "perfume" preparations, or used in its whole form to soften and soothe the skin, honey is nature's most mysterious ingredient. It holds constituents that help heal the skin, protect against infection, and soften and even the complexion to achieve a healthy "glow".
Vitamin E: Used to stabilize all of Farmaesthetics natural non-aqueous formulations. Benefits in restoring skin's elasticity. Assists in healing scars and preventing stretch marks in skin that is being stretched from pregnancy or weight gain.
Ingredients:
Sweet soy oil*, honey absolute and vitamin E (certified organic ingredients*)

Farmaesthetics products are 100% natural, contain certified organic ingredients as indicated, are hypo-allergenic, non-irritating & dermatological tested, with a certified shelf-life of 2 years from the date of opening. No animal testing.

Essential Oil: Spolight on Organic Lavender

The popularity of essential oils is on the rise. Most estheticians and massage therapists have incorporated them into their treatments. Retailing them is simple, and an extra perk for your clients.

Today I want to tell you a little bit about Lavender Essential Oil, specifically
ESS® Organic Lavender High Altitude

Lavender grows at 600-1200 m altitude. The best plants, grown at 1200 m, are used to produce this exceptionally fine, high-quality Lavender. The plants for this oil are grown in the Italian Alps, near the French border. Unlike many other lavenders that have a "boiled" odor, it has a wonderfully fresh aroma, reminiscent of lavender growing wild or in gardens. Lavender is the most widely used essential oil in aromatherapy, particularly for its relaxing properties. 10 ml.

This oil has been certified as organic by the Soil Association, which means you can trace every single ingredient back to the farm where it was organically grown. Each oil is unique and fully certified to give you the highest quality possible.


Ingredients:
This is a natural Essential Oil produced by steam distillation of the bio-mass of Lavender flowers and consists of Terpenes, Terpene alcohols, and Esters - principally Linalyl Acetate.

13 Surprising Benfits of Lavender Essential Oils
  • Bug repellent
  • Sleep
  • Nervous system (migraines, headaches, depression)
  • Acne
  • Pain Relief
  • Urine Flow
  • Respiratory Disorders 
  • Hair Care
  • Cancer 
  • Blood Circulation
  • Digestion
  • Immunity
  • Skin Care

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!

Offer Your Clients Products with Frangipani Oil - They Will Thank You!

Not familiar with this oil? Neither was I until I read an recent article on its beauty benefits. Although it sounds like a decadent Italian dessert (yum!), frangipani oil comes from the frangipani tree which is also known as the tree of life and for centuries has been regarded for its healing powers. This oil is commonly used for its natural anti-aging properties, and also as an aromatherapy to help people maintain a sense of clam. 


We have a few products made with this luxurious healing oil here at Pure Spa Direct! If you haven't heard of the amazing brand MeBath yet, you are missing out! I personally love their products, and I'm sure your clients will, too. They make an amazing sugar scrub and effervescent soak that's created using frangipani oil and mulberry leaves. The icing on the cake? It's infused with delicious blue agave making it smell so delicious you wish you could eat it! How cute is the packaging too?  Get these on your retail shelves today!
