Warm Up For Winter

Depending on your location, you may already be feeling the start of cooler weather. If you have clients who tend to run colder, having microwavable heating packs available can be just the thing to take their service experience from good to great. As someone who is always cold, any time I'm offered a warm blanket or heat pack, I remember who offered.

It's also the perfect time of year to start including items like herbal neck wraps, back wraps and even booties to your retail section. These make great holiday gifts every year! Here are some favorites that we see fly off the shelves each year:

Kozi Neck Wrap
Herbal Booties
Sposh Herbal Packs


Don't forget to have table warmers and blankets, robes and slippers for clients who may run extra cold!

Sugar and Spice Makes You Feel Nice

Now that your fall menu is in full swing, what are you doing for the end of the year menu? This hot spice tea scrub will have your clients feeling hydrated, smooth and all around warm and cozy!

This only takes about 5 minutes to prepare making it fresh and easy!

In a rubber mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar crystals with 1/2 teaspoons clove powder (mortar & pestle makes it easy to grind or use an electric grinder). Add in 6 teaspoons of grapeseed oil and 6 drops of cinnamon essential oil.
Place the bowl inside a mud warmer, hot towel cabi or large stainless bowl filled with hot water to
ensure the mixture is warming when applied.

It's as easy as that! Simply perform the body scrub as you normally do! You can offer cinnamon or spice tea to clients to bring it full circle with cozy comfort!

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!

Product Of The Week: Keyano Champagne & Rose Scrub

Happy Friday and Happy New Year!

With the end of the year/new year holidays behind us, next up on everyone's mind is Valentines Day.

One of my personal favorite smelling lines and a great way to break up the chocolate monotony, is the Keyano Champagne and Rose.

The champagne and rose scrub is an amazing choice to use in Valentines services, and offer in a retail size! You can even retail the whole champagne and rose line which includes massage oil, scrub and a butter cream - all smell bright, fresh and delicious!

This oil free exfoliating treatment can be used for everything from manicure/pedicures and body exfoliating treatments. It's even compatible with whirlpool pedicure units!

Be Memorable!

Do your clients refer to you for one specific reason aside from, "the place I get my facials"?

Do they refer to you as "XYZ, they have this amazing Caviar Facial that is unlike any other!?

Big difference there. Do you have a signature? If you do, what sets it apart from anything they can get down the block, or next town over?

Be the place that smells like warm vanilla when you walk in, that offers a signature Cinnamon & Clove scrub in the winter, that is to die for!

Be the massage therapist who not only gives a phenomenal massage, but offers a delicious smelling butter rum hand and foot treatment during the winter!

You can have a year round signature, seasonal or whatever works best for your style - just don't forget to see what's new, and how your competition is evolving.

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: Aromafloria Sinus Help Inhalation Beads

Happy Friday!

Now that cold and flu season has been hitting areas hard, do you have any items on hand to ease congestion?

Aromafloria Sinus Help Inhalation Beads are an excellent, effective and affordable item everyone should have at their retail counter this season. We had a bottle here in the office and I purchased one as a gift for my mother last year - amazing!  A year later, and my mother still talks about how these helped clear her head.

These powerful little beads are full of eucalyptus, peppermint and lemongrass to easy congestion and boost the stuffiest of moods. They come with a cute little pouch to fill with the beads making inhalation easy and portable.  You don't have to fill the pouch up completely as a little can go a long way, depending on the level of congestion.

Did I mention these are only $5.50 each? Have a tester bottle nearby, offer it to clients to try or try it on them during a service if they are congested! Retailing at $10.00 makes it appealing to clients as well, especially once they've had a chance to smell (and feel!) how great this is.

These make great impulse item purchases, gifts and you can easily use them as an add on "boost"!

Head Off Dry Winter Skin Through Retail

In a perfect world, every client would be able to come see you on a regular schedule to address any and all skin concerns. Time and money get in the way of that so having seasonal "go to" retail products can be successful.  Depending on where you live, dry winter skin can be a challenge for many of your clients.

Farmaesthetics Herbal Hydration Complex - Remedy Reserve Mask makes an excellent addition to any retail line up. Aside from being awarded the best "5 Minute Complexion Makeover", this 100% natural mask is great for any skin type. From calming irritations to being touted as a great hangover recovery mask (perfect for holiday party season!) your clients can use this to maintain moisture levels between services and for repairing.

The size and packaging makes it great for gifts for family, friends, coworkers and makes a great travel companion for your on the go clients!

Slim Down As The Year Winds Down

I still cannot believe we're already into October, this year is flying by!

Detox and slimming treatments are always trending, however the end of the year always shows a big push in detox services. Clients want to look their absolute best for events, parties and reunions.

If you're looking to add something new to your body wraps, here is an extremely profitable recipe idea, to have your clients feeling bright and tight!

Slim It Down!

In large rubber mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cup of green tea powder with 1 teaspoon of borage oil. After mixing well, add in 3/4 cup of dead sea mud and 2 teaspoons of grapeseed oil. Mix this all up well, and place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or even a large stainless bowl filled with hot water. You want the mixture to be warm when applying to the client.

Perform the body wrap as you normally would, along with any add ons like dry brushing, Eco Fin or a scalp massage. Add on services are a great way to further boost profits and increase clients satisfaction!

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!
