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!

Winter Wear - Robes, Slippers & More!

I just read an article about a spa in Texas who polled around 500 clients (both men and women) regarding spa apparel. Most agreed that they like a pajama-like feel along with footwear that is functional rather than just comfortable.

Have you spoken with or polled your own clients to see what they may prefer? It may sound odd, asking clients what they like to wear but it's a vital component to business! I always think about it like this: if you're going in for a surgical procedure or even a physical....would you rather wear one of those open-ended thin gowns or would you feel a bit better in an actual robe?

Another interesting result from the poll this spa conducted was that most clients preferred colored robes rather than a white or cream. Do you have a color scheme in your business? Even if you don't focus on one particular color, why not add some color flair in with your robes and slippers?

Whether you're gearing up for the upcoming cooler months in your area or just looking to spruce things up, we've got you covered!

From Boca Terry to Mspa...there's a robe for all occasions! Don't forget footwear - prefer spa slippers or something like the Yeah Baby or Sensi Sandals (see which your clients prefer!) If you really want to tie things together, add in a matching headband!

As we step into the fall season, as crazy as it sounds....the winter holidays will soon be here. As much as I don't want to start thinking about it, preparation saves a lot of headache, stress and panic. I'm sure many of your clients (and you!) may feel the same.

While you're taking care of their other needs, why not start to spotlight some awesome holiday gift selections? Convenience is key for many people so, while they're waiting or walking around, spotlighting a few great gift ideas they can scoop up and put away for the holidays is an easy sell.

One of the all time best selling holiday retail items is candles! Check out the newest addition to our candle family in awesome scents and clever names like Sparkling Snowflake!

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 :)

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.

A Sweet Transition From Summer to Fall!

As the end of summer quickly approaches, spas are rounding out the last of the fresh, fruity treatments before transitioning into the cozy fall ones. Why not throw in something sweet to end the season off with some orange (summer feel, fall color!) centered treatments. There are so many awesome orange products, it doesn't matter what service(s) you offer, you can find great products!


Here are some favorites in all sorts of categories!

For facials:
Use a vitamin c ampoule before a mask or as the glide for use with a skin scrubber!

For body treatments:
Make your own masks, scrubs or peels! Orange peel and peeling powder are great for improving the texture and color of the skin due to all that lovely vitamin c. They also make great astringents

For nails:
Aside from the obvious orange polish and slippers/toe separators, you can add some orange essential oils to soaks, use orange peel or peeling powder to make scrubs or masks. Try out a La Palm Orange Marine Mask, salt glow, or lotion.

For massage:
Try out an orange scented lotion or add some essential oil to a carrier oil!


For everyone:
Have some orange essential oil or candles in the treatment room, offer orange teas, have orange robes and headbands.

You may also consider having a sale on orange retail items when client's purchase an orange treatment! Be creative!!!
