Add Some Spice to Your Fall Menu - Warm Apple Parafffin



Warm paraffin treatments are a great service to offer this time of year. Anything warming will sound very appealing to your clients during the colder months. Therabath Pro Paraffin treatments will relieve aches and pains and will soften and moisturize the skin from the inside out!

The Warm Apple Spice Paraffin is perfect for your fall/winter spa menu. It is a delectable scent of juicy apples, fresh spices and a hint of pear that I am sure your clients will love! It is also infused with therapeutic essential oils of clove and cinnamon.

How it works:
A paraffin wax spa takes advantage of paraffin's heat-retaining capacity in a simple process called heat transfer. Basically, as a liquid, the paraffin is able to retain more heat and when a hand or foot is dipped into it, it turns solid and the heat is delivered straight to the core of the area.

Hand Treatments:

  1. Cleanse hands or use Sanitizing Spray
  2. Apply Intensive Hydrating Cream.
  3. Spread fingers slightly, hold hand flat and slowly immerse hand into paraffin; removing hand immediately.
  4. Wait 5 seconds allowing the parafin "shine" to go away indicating the wax is dry.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to make a warm "glove" . Dip 3 times - for light therapy and skin moisturiizing. Dip 5-15 times - intense therapy. The more layers of paraffin, the longer the more heat and length of therapy.
  6. Cover hand with plastic mitt liner bag and plush mitt
  7. After 5-30 minutes, remove mitt, move hands and fingers to loosen paraffin, removing it in liner bag.
  8. Discard used paraffin.


Foot Treatments:

  1. Cleanse feet with Sanitizing Spray. Rub in.
  2. Apply Intensive Hydrating Cream
  3. Slowly immerse foot into paraffin and remove. ( feet are more sensitive to heat than hands – dip only portion of the foot on first dip, and entire foot on subsequent dips)
  4. Wait 5-7 seconds, repeat 3, remove.
  5. Repeat 3-5 times
  6. Cover foot with plastic liner bag and terry boot
  7. After 10 minutes, remove boot, move foot and toes to loosen paraffin and remove it in liner bag
  8. Discard used paraffin


Tips for Best Results:

  • The more layers of paraffin, the easier it is to remove.
  • If the area to be treated has a lot of hair, apply additional layers of paraffin. (Paraffin will not remove hair.)
  • Dip to the same level each time so that an even amount of paraffin covers the area to be treated and there is a thick edge to grasp when removing the paraffin.
  • To build up thicker layers, wait a few seconds (until the shine goes away) in between dips.
  • Don’t flex your fingers or break the “glove” of paraffin in between dips.
  • Keep the paraffin in place for 10 to 15 minutes. (The more layers, the longer the heat lasts, and an insulated mitt or boot will cause the heat to last even longer.) Because you will grow accustomed to the heat, it may seem like the heat is gone before it actually is.
  • Before applying paraffin with a brush, preheat the brush by letting it sit in the Therabath Pro for five minutes
