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!

New Season - New Look!

They say first impressions are the most important, and it could not be more true! Think about when a new client first walks into your spa. Where is the first place they head?

With Fall nearly here, it's time to start thinking about new decor, and furniture you are looking to replace! Need help? We have any style and  price point you are looking for!

Transitioning To Fall and Winter!

We've been speaking with many clients the last few weeks about their fall menus as well as the upcoming holiday season. While it may seem far off, it will be here before you know it!

Here is one of my all time favorite recipe combinations for the fall and/or winter season that can be used in a multitude of services:

Cinnamon Comfort (or whatever name you'd like to use!)
To start off, create the mood. Fill a diffuser with water and add in the following essential oils: 2 drops of Clove, 5 drops of Cinnamon, and 4 drops of Ginger -  for every ounce of water.

For massages, mani/pedi treatments etc, you can make the following massage oil, cream or lotion:

In a mixing bowl,  mix 4 oz. of unscented oil, cream, or lotion with the following essential oils:  1 drop of Clove, 3 drops of Cinnamon, and 2 drops of Ginger and mix well.

For a cinn-ful body scrub/polish:
In a mixing bowl, mix 8 oz. of unscented salt or sugar with 4 tablespoons of a carrier oil and mix well.  Add in the following essential oils: 5 drops of Clove, 10 drops of Cinnamon, and 5 drops of Ginger.

Very easy to make and use - you can even get sample jars or bottles to give your clients any extra to take home!

Stop And Smell The Flowers While Boosting Business!

We've all heard some variation of "stop to smell the roses" at some point in time. While it usually refers to slowing down or being more aware to appreciate things, it can be beneficial for your business.

What flower menu options do you have? Are they customizable?
Offering services that utilize flower power (I tried to resist, I really did!) in some way is always popular with clients! Making it customizable is a way to stand out from your competition. Having a raw ingredient bar for clients is also a fun way to engage clients.
If you offer hydrotherapy, do you offer muslin bags to drop in (complimentary or as an add on!) that are filled with flowers and raw ingredients? Again, having clients choose their own (you can have a set of pre-filled ones -like these or make your own-to choose from or give them an empty muslin bag and send them to the raw bar!) will get clients talking (to you AND their friends/family/coworkers), increase likelihood of add on and retail sales.

When was the last time you changed the floral options?
Is lavender or rose the only scent you have (if your business is tied in to lavender or rose in any way, disregard!)? Your clients may be getting tired of the same old smells. Refresh their senses with some new scents. There are enough varieties out there to ensure you'll never get bored of them all. You can choose from individual oils or blends or even candles! Variety is key here, you never want your clients to be bored or complacent - you want them excited to see what's new every time they walk in your door.

With all this fresh new floral activity freshening up your menu and environment, your reawakened clients will be eager to try new things, buy more things and tell more people how awesome you are. As I have mentioned numerous times, it's the little things :)

Delicious Services For Spring: Papaya Facials!


Though papayas are technically available all year long, this delicious fruit tends to peak in the early summer. Get ahead of the curve, and start incorporating papaya facials and other services into your spa right before summer starts! Papayas contain many components that are good for the skin to help keep it healthy looking. Along with the Papain enzymes, it is good a source of antioxidants and nutrients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin B, carotenes, and flavonoids, fiber and minerals like magnesium and potassium which are all great for maintaining skin health!

Not sure where to begin? We have an amazing Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque by June Jacobs that you can incorporate into facials! This clarifying enzyme masque contains a highly effective combination of papaya’s natural fruit enzyme, papain, with extracts of mango and pineapple, to gently dissolve dead surface impurities allowing nourishing oils of sweet almond and borage seed to penetrate, improving tone and elasticity of the skin. It also smells amazingly delicious, and I'm sure you're clients will love it! I also highly recommend our June Jacobs Papaya Enzyme Facial Treatment Kit - it includes everything you need to get started with your papaya facials. Be sure to order it just in time for early summer :)

Merry Massages!

With the holiday season upon us, everyone is stressed about something new. Whether it be busier at work, gift giving stress, party stress or just end of the year crunch time stress - it can take a toll on our bodies. If you haven't gotten your holiday menu up and running, or are looking to add something new in just before the end of the month, here's a massage idea to help each tired, aching muscles and frazzled nerves!



On this one, you can customize or give your clients the option of which aromatherapy blend they want.

In a glass bottle, mix together one of the following and shake to mix:

3 drops rosemary essential oil
3 drops cinnamon essential oil

or

4 drops spruce essential oil
3 drops eucalyptus essential oil

Add the essential oil blend to 1/4 cup of grapeseed oil and mix well.

It's as easy as that!

You can also make more of the massage oil blend to give to your clients to take home. Check out all of the different sample jars.

New Mineral Baths From Keyano In Time For The Holidays!

Just in time for the holidays, the Keyano Mani/Pedi Minreal Bath is sure to be a successful addition to your winter menu.

If you are looking to stick to the traditional holiday scents, check out the pumpkin, pomegranate, cranberry and of course peppermint. If you are looking to mix it up, try a mango or coconut lime!

As with all of the other Keyano products, the scents are amazing (coconut lime is a best seller and the peppermint reminds me of the old Peppermint Patty commercials!)

Not to be outdone by the fragrances, these are excellent for softening skin, getting rid of fungus and strengthening nails.

I love Eco-Fin, it may be my favorite add on service. It's cost effective, easy to use, easy to upsell and the scents are awesome.

It's perfect for the holiday season with a combination of pine, berries, cedarwood, rose and cinnamon - it smells like winter!

As always, there's no petroleum, artificial dyes, or synthetic fragrances and it's chock full of nourishing ingredients like shea buttervitamin E, organic coconut oil and more!

If you're looking for something new, different or simply seasonal to add to your menu, I highly recommend this!

Get Festive with Cranberry Products

Tis the season! Now that Thanksgiving has passed, the start of the holiday season has officially begun. But is your spa prepped for the holiday craze? Why not start with cranberry products? Hopefully you and your clients aren't sick of it by now! Don't worry, the below products are most certainly not the edible type. Cranberry is great for the skin! Aside from having nearly every vitamin in the alphabet (well, at least A through D!) these delicious berries are also high in anti-oxidants - perfect for hydration and anti-aging. If you haven't heard of June Jacobs yet, you're missing out! They are an amazing skincare line, and a few of their products feature the beloved cranberry! I guarantee your clients will fall in love with these products. Their attractive packaging will look amazing on your retail stand - just in time for the holiday season! Check them out below.




To start, get your clients hooked on this delicious smelling Creamy Cranberry Cleanser. This ultra-hydrating cleanser provides moisture to the skin during the cleansing process and imparts a bouquet of fresh cranberry - umm, yummy!








After using the cleanser, be sure to have your clients follow with the Cranberry Hydrating Toner. Enriched with cranberry extracts, this toner will feel refreshing. A couple of sprays is all it takes! I use the June Jacobs Elastin Collagen Toner everyday, but this is becoming my new seasonal favorite!



Did I mention their products are paraben and preservative free? To complete the set, the Cranberry Pomegranate Moisture Masque is definitely a client favorite! This luxurious masque is combined with extracts of shea butter and sunflower seed oil to replenish the skin.






Be sure to stock up on these items, as I guarantee they will be selling out fast come December. You can even create your own retail package to include all 3 items!

It's that time of year already, time to start transitioning from fall themed (the full court pumpkin press!), to the winter menu. Which as you all know, is peppermint season - among others. Peppermint everything flies out of our warehouses every year starting around the end of November.

No matter what your specialties are, peppermint is always a client favorite, from services to retail. Be sure to check out all things peppermint on the site (be sure to check the just added section regularly for new arrivals!)




Here are some of the ones I see and hear great feedback on:

Alaska Glacial Mineral Mud  - Refreshing Lavender & Peppermint - a client favorite (and mine!) The most mineral rich mud on the market today. They also have retail items!

Peppermint Essential Oil

Keyano Peppermint -  just like their other scents, these are wonderful! From massage oils and butter creams to moisture masks and scrubs, there is something for everyone! These sell fast every year, be sure to get yours early!

Eco-Fin Paraffin Alternative - Escape: Peppermint Essence 

June Jacobs Peppermint - this is one of our most popular lines for all of her products, the peppermint line is a great addition to holiday menus and retail areas!

Maxim Pedi Redi Plus 65 oz. Peppermint - this is one of the most popular ones all year round, they barely stay on the shelves by December!

Peppermint Leaves - perfect for making fresh masks, scrubs and more!

Speaking of seasons and changes - when was the last time you upgraded your paraffin warmer? When you're ready to purchase the Pumpkin Cupcake Paraffin (be sure to do so fast - our pumpkin supply seems to run out quickly!), make sure you browse our paraffin warmers before you checkout!

Aromatherapy for Fall

Do you have clients who come in congested or with head colds now that the chillier weather is approaching? If so, it may be beneficial to switch up your essential oils you offer your clients during the Fall months, so you can better serve those who suffer from seasonal allergies. 

A recent article I read highlighted certain scents that can help clear your clients sinuses and also relax their muscles if they are feeling under the weather. It's great to have a custom essential oil blend ready for each individual client if you haven't already considered! Check out some ideas below:
Frankincense
This essential oil is great for warming up the body, especially with the colder months ahead. It’s also known for its comforting properties and can help to promote healthy cell regeneration. 

Eucalyptus
Eucalyptus oil can help to relive muscles aches and pains, and can also help to boost the immune system - perfect for your clients who are suffering from a cold!

Lavender
Definitely our most popular selling essential oil! This can help to relax your clients and soothe their muscle aches and pains while boosting their immune system as well! 

I highly recommend blend the above oils for a customized Aromatherapy for Fall that you can present to your clients during the upcoming months! Be sure to check out our site - we have quite an extensive list of essential oils to choose from!
