You're Getting Very Sleepy - Help Your Clients Get Restful Sleep!

Sleep, it's no secret a good night's sleep is imperative to your health and skin health - they don't call it beauty sleep for no reason! Despite knowing this, many people rarely get a decent night sleep, let alone a good one.

Do you talk to your clients about the importance of restful sleep in relation to their skin care concerns? Do you offer any treatments that help promote sleep? Finally, do you offer retail items to help them get the best possible sleep?


Here are some of our sleep/relaxation related products for use in services and retail!

 Ultimate ZZZZs Silk Sleep Mask 
This is a must if you have clients who have trouble unplugging or need the noise of a television to fall asleep to. Having a dark space helps your body release all those lovely sleep hormones/chemicals. Eye masks can be just the thing to help someone get their best night sleep!

Beauty Sleep 
This is actually a supplement to help promote sleep! Available in various retail displays to perfectly fit your counter!

Essential Oil Blend - Peaceful Sleep / 1 oz. 
Perfect to go in a diffuser at bedtime!

Music Cd's

Lavender Essential Oil 
Extremely popular for relaxation! Pick out the scents you think would work best or a blend!

Aromafloria Stress Less Ocean Mineral Bath Salts
These little guys are amazing! They also have a muscle soak one that is heavenly! 

You can really wow them and have your own sleep room! A dimly lit (salt lamps are amazing for this!) or dark room with super comfortable loungers, soft music and offer the sleep masks!

For a very small investment, you can increase retail sales and help your clients get some well-deserved rest!

Aside from smelling amazingly delicious, cinnamon has a plethora of health and beauty benefits! It's great for healthy skin, and overall wellness. Now that it's Fall, I'm sure you are changing up your spa's menu, and incorporating new scents and services for your clients. Cinnamon is definitely a popular Fall scent I'm sure most (if not, all!) your clients love! It's warming, and it's pleasant scent offers relaxing and refreshing properties.  When cinnamon is used in aromatherapy diffused, or even applied topically, it can have health-promoting effects! Not sure where to start? Here are some ways to use cinnamon leaf essential oil at your spa:

Facial Scrub: Mix it with cinnamon sugar and coconut oil (or any oil your client prefers) to create a rejuvenating scrub that smells amazing!

Foot Soak: Mix a drop of cinnamon oil in a bucket of warm water that your clients can soak their feet in during pedicure services! This will also feel super refreshing.

Aromatherapy: During your massage or facial services, simply drop cinnamon oil into any of our diffusers to make the room smell amazing. The scent will most certainly keep your clients relaxed during their treatment.

Happy Fall!

Just Getting Started On Your New Business? We Can Help!


Are you a new Spa or Beauty Business Owner just getting started? You probably plan on opening in about 6 months, or maybe even 1 month if you're feeling ambitious! I know, I know... it could go from being the most exciting endeavor in the world, to simultaneously feeling like you're overwhelmed and don't even know where to begin. Well, you definitely came to the right place! We help future business owners like yourself gather everything they need for their new business each and everyday!

I recently helped a new client gather everything she needed for her spa. This was one year in the making, too! She contacted me last August, mentioning that she was planning on opening up her brand new spa in a few months. She sent me a complete list of everything she intended on ordering - everything from Facial Beds for her treatment rooms, to trolleys, steamers, and even massage oils, and waxing sticks. I was excited to help her on her new endeavor! I noticed a few items were missing, such as pre-and post wax oils, and even made recommendations on new treatments that she should incorporate, like lash and brow tint to jump start her business and keep up with her client's needs. I helped her finalize her list, and ensured she had everything she needed to get started on this exciting (yet slightly stressful) new venture!

Upon completion of her list, which - keep in mind - was a little under three weeks before her opening, I processed the order for her, and made her feel at ease that all of the supplies she ordered were in stock, and will get to her exactly when she needed them by - an essential for every business owner! She's been back to place follow up orders, and her spa has been very successful since.

If you're a new business owner and feeling anxious about gathering everything you need, please contact us. We have everything you need, and we are happy to help!

Grow Your Business With Pure Spa Direct!

One of the things I love most about what we do here at Pure Spa Direct, is helping our clients build and update their businesses - whether it's a client just starting out who needs help with everything from floor to ceiling and front to back or a client looking to update the look and/or feel of the business.

I recently helped a client, who had been ordering her daily supplies and retail items with us for years, update the entire look of her salon. From her reception furniture and decor, right through to upgrading her aging equipment. She didn't realize all of the equipment and furniture we had in addition to her supplies! We went through what she was looking to achieve in her business, and consolidated some equipment into multi-function units. This way, she saved space and increased the services she was able to offer. She had no idea that we offered financing as well! She was able to update her salon, increase the amount of services (and profits!) she could offer all while keeping her cash flow positive. 

We are not simply a supplier, we are here to help achieve your dreams, visions and goals for your business and clients! It's what we live for!

Ayurveda: A Beauty Regimen That's 5,000 Years Old!

...and still applicable! Ayurveda is a nearly 5,000 year old science, and one of the earliest adopters of the mantra that "beauty comes from within." This practice focuses on balancing the whole body to enhance beauty and even optimize energy!

The Ayurvedic approach to caring for the skin starts with knowing your dosha. There are three doshas:

Vata
This type of skin is thin, dry, fine, and extremely delicate.  Their skin is dry, cold to the touch and is not smooth. They are prone to premature wrinkling, especially since they are sun worshippers and tend to be the ones with the darkest tan on the beach.  Many different factors disturb vata including stress, excess activity such as aerobics or constant travel, improper diet, the season of autumn, and especially an irregular routine.

Pitta
This type of skin is susceptible to breakouts and rosacea.  They have combination skin with sensitivities to various allergens, and are most sensitive to the sun.  A few of the things that cause the skin get out of balance are stress, over working, excess mental activity, improper diet, hot sunny weather, and the summer season.

Kapha
This type of skin is thicker, oilier, and prone to acne. Some of the causes of a kapha imbalance consist of not enough activity or exercise, improper diet, cold winter weather, and seclusion.

Thinking about incorporating this age old principle into your spa? We have an amazing selection of Ayurvedic products to choose from! From skincare lines, to Copper Shirodhara stands, we could help you bring this new (but very old!) way of beauty into your spa! Take a look at the items we carry below:

Rub A Dub Dub, What's Trending In The Bathtub!

Everyone (in theory) uses soap whether for their hands, face or body. The effects of harsh chemical-laden city waters combined with drug store bars of soap are stripping your client's skin -- as you're well aware of. I just read an article on all natural soaps being on the rise as clients are more concerned with their overall health.

Aside from having a quality selection of nourishing soaps in your retail line, it is important to consider the scents, essential oils and the effects of the ingredients on the skin. It's also to keep in mind popular scents, and having a few unique ones on hand for those clients who like the non-trendy things.  Here are some of the most popular natural retail soaps that are always in high demand.



Take a look at some of the other cleanser options as well!

Offer Your Clients Products with Frangipani Oil - They Will Thank You!

Not familiar with this oil? Neither was I until I read an recent article on its beauty benefits. Although it sounds like a decadent Italian dessert (yum!), frangipani oil comes from the frangipani tree which is also known as the tree of life and for centuries has been regarded for its healing powers. This oil is commonly used for its natural anti-aging properties, and also as an aromatherapy to help people maintain a sense of clam. 


We have a few products made with this luxurious healing oil here at Pure Spa Direct! If you haven't heard of the amazing brand MeBath yet, you are missing out! I personally love their products, and I'm sure your clients will, too. They make an amazing sugar scrub and effervescent soak that's created using frangipani oil and mulberry leaves. The icing on the cake? It's infused with delicious blue agave making it smell so delicious you wish you could eat it! How cute is the packaging too?  Get these on your retail shelves today!
