Here are the newest additions that may just breathe new life not only to your music collection, but to the overall vibe in the area!

Scentual Sleep - Aromatherapy Time!

Sleep....something most people these days are not getting enough of. Clients coming in for any service, are coming in to also get away from the craziness of their daily routines. I read an article recently on some spas offering sleep themed services to help their client's get even more relaxation out of their visit. Some were even extending hours on certain days, offering services in darker lit rooms. Even for the ones who were offering their sleep services all day long (you never know what clients work schedules may be!) having services designed to enhance sleep is an awesome way to pull new client's in.

Now for the scent part which, is one of the most important things for me when I enter ANY business, especially a spa. For now, we'll focus on scents that will help he overall relaxation experience which in turn, will allow the client to go home and snuggle into bed. Here are some of the top essential oils that your client's will be dreaming of:

Essential Oil Blend - Peaceful Sleep by Now --with chamomile, lavender and sandlewood (plus more!) you cannot go wrong with this blend. It's the warm fuzzy blanket you had as a kid, in a scent.

ESS® Relaxation Oil Blend - I have this in the diffuser in my bedroom right now. It's an interesting blend of earthy and calming scents. If you are looking for a scent that will make your client's ask where to buy it...this is it and you can retail it!

ESS Roman Chamomile Pure Essential Oil - a tried and true favorite for relaxation

Lotus Touch Relaxation Essential Oil Blend

Check out the full line of essential oils here!

Also, have some eye packs to retail to your clients and for use in services!

Wow Your Clients & Increase Profits---Smell The Money!

As seen in my many posts I'm obsessed with ambiance and essential oils...I am in absolute love with a new product.

It's an ultrasonic aroma diffuser, but not just the usual diffuser you have at home or see hidden at other businesses. This is the Cher of diffusers! Pretty outrageous comparison for a diffuser right? Wrong!

It has as many features as Cher has outfit changes!

Ok, Cher comparison aside, check out the features of both the Serenity Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser (Cher) and it's significant other (Sonny) Harmony Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser.

Check out these features:
  • Two mist options (high and low)
  • Three light options (on/off, soft, bright)
  • SEVEN light colors (white, green, red, yellow, blue, aqua, purple)--you can match your decor in every room! 
  • Four timer settings (60, 120, 180 minutes and continuous).
  • My favorite feature:  Light colors can be fixed or gradually faded through all colors!!!
  • Both have an auto shut-off when the water runs out. They both 100% quiet, the unit can be used without aromatherapy oils to add moisture to air. 
  • The unit also purifies air generating negative ions to remove pollutants, bacteria, fine dust, smoke and viruses. 
Now not only can you customize the scent you have in your space, you can have the color match or fade in and out to create a fun look!

Need essential oil help? Check out the amazing options available here
If you are looking for blending ideas, check out some of the ESS brand, in the descriptions on many are what each scent blends well with.

The first impression people get when they enter your business is not just the look but how it smells. Not only are people more inclined to spend money when they are relaxed and happy but smells can induce sense memories. If you can pair certain scents to go along with retail items you have, it's an easy sell. I love the smell of bergamont, it makes me happy and if I smell it when I walk into a business and they sell anything related to it (teas, oils, candles,etc) I will buy them. I know I'm not alone with this!

You've worked so hard at getting your business to reflect your style, enhance it with some great scents and a cool diffuser!

Creating An Air of Luxury In Your Spa


When I walk into a spa or salon one of the first things I notice, aside from the decor and overall feel of the space, is how it smells. Does it smell stale or have no scent at all? Nothing enhances a client's experience like walking into a place that smells heavenly. It adds to the client's experience and can essentially make or break their mood from the start. If anything sets them off negatively when they walk in, their perception of the service they are getting can be affected.

The  Timberwick Fireplace Crackle Soy Candles are phenomenal for creating a serene and peaceful ambiance in your reception area and your treatment rooms.

The different scents available allow you to customize the candle to certain treatments or moods.

My personal favorites are the amber and cedar and lavender citrus. If your unsure of what scent will fit your style there is also the try me pack so you can experience all the possibilities.

If scents aren't your thing or you're concerned about some clients not liking a particular scent you can still take advantage of the relaxing benefits of candles! Have you noticed how many people get lost staring into a fireplace? Candles can produce the same effect!

Some great unscented candles to try include:

 Candle - Gem Tone Unscented Jar - Violet 11 oz. by Aloha Bay / 11 oz.
These candles also come in white, indigo , red , yellow, orange and green to match your rooms!

If you're concerned about having a flame for safety reasons you can always go with flame-less candles such as:
 Flameless Wax Candle / 6" x 3.25" Round / Unscented / White Color

 Flameless Candle / 4" White with Purple Flowers / Unscented by Candle Impressions by Candle Impressions 

A small investment like this can significantly enhance your clients experience and also provide an opportunity to retail the candles as well!

As Rainy Season Approaches, and Easy Way to Keep Your Spa Dry and Organized!

Spring is nearly here, and with spring comes.....rain. I know, not what you expected me to say, but it is the truth.

As I sat here this rainy morning, watching everyone shake the rain off their coats, shoes, and umbrellas as they rushed through the parking lot and into work, I started thinking. For many of us, spring is a rainy, wet season, and it is a struggle to keep our nice, peaceful space dry and convenient for our clients. Who even wants to get out of bed or off the couch on a rainy day? As business owners, the key to having clients come in, even in the most inconvenient of situations, is the reassurance that once they arrive to your location, there will be no hassle, and they will be indulged in relaxation from the moment they walk through your door.

But how do you avoid the wet mess that comes with rainy season? Umbrellas, rain coats, rain boots, water, and mud being dragged through your beautiful spa? A coat/umbrella stand!

Here at Pure Spa Direct, we offer a number of different options for keeping umbrellas organized and out of the way and minimizing the mess that comes with a rainy day. We even offer "Wet Umbrella Bags" for your clients to wrap their umbrellas in to keep their other belongings (and your spa!) dry and mess-free.

Check out our full selection of umbrella stands so your spa can be the bright spot in your client's rainy day!

The MUST-HAVE Massage Tool: Selenite Massage Wand

There is nothing that can destroy my day faster than waking up with a migraine, and yesterday was no different. My head hurt, my neck was sore, I was having a hard time even keeping my head above my shoulders. Ugh, not a happy morning. So when my coworker pulled out a pretty looking white wand and told me to turn around so she could try to work out the knot in my neck, I definitely did not argue.




That pretty white wand was a MIRACLE! The Selenite Massage Wand not only worked out my knots (with little effort, too!), but completely relaxed me in a matter of seconds. Selenite is known for its calming, relaxing and healing vibrational properties, making it the perfect tool for use in massage. Your clients will appreciate the deep tissue penetration and the cooling sensation on the skin. Also perfect for rolling massage techniques, and can be used for heat therapy - this little tool can do it all. You will appreciate the low cost and high client satisfaction!

We have various Selenite Massage Tools available, including wands, stress balls, and spheres. Check them out today!
