Why Wait Til Valentines Day To Offer Chocolate?

Everyone focuses on chocolate treatments for Valentines Day, chocolate products fly off the shelves every January. How about the rest of the year?

People love chocolate, any time of year! If you put a basket of chocolates on the reception counter, clients will eat it. Why not offer End-of-the-Year Chocolate Guilty Pleasure treatments?

Here is a body treatment that will leave your clients feeling like they jumped into a decadent pool of warm melty chocolate!

For the scrub:
In a large rubber bowl, mix 1/4 cup of dead sea salt with 1/4 cup of chocolate mint or chocolate cake oil. After mixing well, place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabi or large stainless bowl filled with hot water.



For the wrap:
In a medium rubber bowl, blend 5 tablespoons of white clay powder with 4 teaspoons of aloe gel.
Add in 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder and 2 teaspoons of water, mix well. If this seems to dry, add a little more water until it can be applied in a thin layer. Keep the bowl warm until ready to use.

Perform the body treatment as you normally would, including any add on services like dry brushing, Eco Fin, or even a facial mask!

Scrub Those Nails!

We sell a ton of nail brushes everyday, but for some reason this particular nail brush was super popular! Perhaps it's the cool, easy to use translucent handle. Or maybe it's the quality of the bristles. I bought one for myself and I gotta tell ya - it works pretty darn good!... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy!

Just In Time for the Holidays - Santa Scrub!

A few clients this week have been thinking about bringing some new menu items to their holiday menu. Here is one to entice your clients senses and keep their skin super soft!

Holiday Cinnamon Scrub

For the scrub
In a rubber mixing bowl, combine the following:

1/4 cup of sucanat
3 tablespoons of grapeseed oil
1/4 teaspoon of clove powder
4 drops of cinnamon essential oil
6 drops of mandarin essential oil

Once these have been mixed well, place the bowl in a hot towel cabinet or mud warmer until ready to use.

In another rubber mixing bowl, combine 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil with 2 drops of cinnamon essential oil and 3 drops of mandarin essential oil. Place this in a hot towel cabinet or mud warmer until ready to start the treatment.

A great way to start the service is by offering a dry brush add on (or just build this into the treatment cost) and giving the client the brush to take for home use. You can also use exfoliating massage gloves (also a great item to retail or give to clients) instead if you prefer.

Start off with the scrub and apply as you normally perform body scrubs - be sure to check in with the client to ensure comfort at all times. Once finished, if you have a vichy shower, drench the client for about 10 minutes or so to remove all product. If you have a shower, have them rinse off.

Once all product has been removed, finish off with a light massage with the warm oil.

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!

Let It Snow!

Even though it's 60 degrees here in New York, it's still winter, and a little snow is always fun! I'm sure I'll be rescinding that statement once it becomes 30 degrees with a foot or two of snow on the ground come mid February. Looking to make it snow in your spa? Well, not actual snow, but we do have an amazing scrub that looks just like it! Be sure to check out our Pedi-Redi Snow! Pedi Redi helps to clean and prepare the feet for treatment by softening calluses and cuticles for easy exfoliation. This special blend is formulated without any dyes or fragrances, making it ideal for your clients who are sensitive to scents. You can even add essential oils to customize your own scrub! This is the type of snow you're definitely going to want at your spa all year long :)

Fall Isn't Just for Pumpkins!

Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin beer, pumpkin body cream, pumpkin tampons (wait these actually DONT exist, and should never)...by the time October hits, almost every retail product and food item is associated with a pumpkin. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed my PSL from Starbucks this morning, my apartment is already stocked with pumpkin candles and pumpkin body cream, and cans of pumpkin puree are in my kitchen waiting to be made into festive pumpkiny treats. I think it's time to give the pumpkins a break (at least for this blog post) and highlight another festive fall scent that is often overlooked: Ginger Red Currant!

If you haven't already started incorporating fall scents into your spa products yet, what are you waiting for? I'm sure you're fully stocked on pumpkin, but have you considered Ginger Red Currant as a new scent to add to your spa? The smooth fruity scent of red currant combined with spicy ginger will make your clients excited for the upcoming cooler months as well as the holidays that are rapidly approaching! 

We have an amazing product in stock now for fall. Check out our Maxim Pedi Redi Red Ginger & Currant scrub! This scrub soften calluses and cuticles and will remove dead skin while significantly reducing scrubbing time for the pedicurist. This specially formulated product contains the delicious essential and fragrance oils of red currant and ginger. Get this in your spa for the upcoming months, and your clients will thank you!

Yummy Skincare! The Beautifying Benefits of Cocoa Butter

Looking for a skincare product that's so delicious you kind of just want to eat it? I'm sure your clients are too, and while I definitely do not recommend eating our cocoa butter products right out of the jar (please don't), I have a great list of its beautifying benefits that will make your clients keep coming back for seconds (to put on their skin, of course).

Cocoa butter is made from whole cocoa beans that are fermented, roasted, and then separated from their hulls. The remaining residue is.. voila.. cocoa butter! Check out some of the beautifying benefits of cocoa butter below as well as products we have for your spa that your clients will love!

Hydrating


Due to its fatty acid and nutrient content, cocoa butter is great for moisturizing dry skin and keeping it that way. Are you in need of a new retail product you can suggest to your clients? You should try out our Queen Helene Cocoa Face and Body Butter Cream! Aside form the attractive packaging, your clients will fall in love with the way it smells and makes their skin feel!





Soothing


Cocoa butter is known for its healing properties because it's so rich in nutrients. It can be helpful for your clients with irritated skin or even eczema. Try adding some cocoa butter into your next facial! Our Cocoa Butter Facial Scrub by Queen Helene is a great exfoliate to incorporate into your skin services (I told you their packaging was cute)!





Healing

The healing properties of cocoa butter are amazing! Due to its high antioxidant content, cocoa butter has the ability to greatly reduce the appearance of scars, minor scratches, and even stretch marks. 

Healthy Hair



It's not just for your skin, either! Cocoa butter is hydrating for dry and damaged hair, and it's also great for strengthening it. Incorporate a Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning Treatment into your salon services using our Organic Pure Cocoa Butter. Your clients will appreciate the scent, as well as their new, healthy hair.

An Homage To Pumice

Lava Pumice Stone by Cuccio
Pumi Callus Remover Sponge
Pumice is a word that's not usually used in every day spa vocabulary, and I'm wondering why it's so downplayed in the industry. Could it be that it's mainly known for its use as a callous remover? Yikes.. sorry for that visual! I think that could most certainly be why, but let's take a look at some of the other benefits this tiny little rock actually has to offer.

Wait... what exactly is pumice?! 

Pumice is a volcanic rock produced when lava with a very high content of water and gases is thrown out of a volcano. Sounds cool right? It's also great to be used in a spa setting, as it will remove your clients' callouses and exfoliate their skin by removing dead cells. This will leave their skin super soft, especially during pedicure treatments!

Here at Pure Spa direct, we have a variety of pumice stone products your clients will love. Check them out below, and give pumice the recognition it deserves!
