Essential Oils for Oily Skin

Many people believe that they need to treat oily, acne prone skin with strong treatments, which strips and remove all oils from the skin. This couldn't be further from the truth!

Aromatherapy treatments are aimed at balancing and reducing sebum productions. Just like traditional anti-acne products oils contain anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and soothing compounds. They are also packed with things like antioxidants and vitamins which are especially healing and protective.

Essential oils that are beneficial for oily skin include;

  • geranium
  • lavender
  • cedarwood
  • palmarosa
  • niaouli
  • juniper berry
  • tea tree 
  • ylang-ylang
  • cypress
  • grapefruit
  • bergamot
  • myrtle

Pro Tip: finish a treatment with flower water that's targeted for oily skin. These include verbena water, witch hazel, orange flower water, and cornflower water.

If presentation and appearance are something you are concerned with for your guests, attention to detail is key. Having a beautiful relaxation room or waiting area is a vital way of impressing clients as soon as they walk in. To really tie in the luxury experience, the GranFontana Gemstone Wellness Decanter Set is a stunning way to offer beverages while keeping the high-end presentation.

Holding 5 liters of water, the GranFontana is not your typical water jug. This beautiful set comes with the glass 5-liter water decanter with spigot, glass and steel stand and the VitaJuwel Gem Water Gemstone Wand - Wellness: Rose Quartz + Amethyst + Rock Crystal. 

Aside from being stunning and a great conversation set, VitaJuwel is the most hygienic and efficient method to prepare gem water.

Got Tape?

Kinesiology tape is a phenomenal, and often under used tool to help relieve client pain, and as a self care tool for therapists.

The widespread use of kinesiology tape on professional athletes and physical therapy offices has made it much easier to talk to clients about. Aside from physical therapists, many massage therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists and wellness workers have successfully incorporated it into their treatment plans to help alleviate pain, improve posture and stability.

It is also valuable as a self care tool to help with everything from hip and back pain to De Quervain's thumb!

How to Add Profit and Satisfaction with Hydration

It is essential for a client to hydrate after a massage, and should always be recommended. Every time I've gotten a spa treatment, I have always been handed a glass of water.

Why is this?

“Relaxing the muscles with massage helps to open these circulatory pathways, directing metabolites toward the kidneys. Hydration after a massage helps the kidneys to flush and eliminate this waste.” (Barbara Close, founder, and CEO of Naturopathica)

It's the little details that can set your business apart from others. Stand out in a crowd by trying these simple suggestions-

Square Glass Flavor Infusion Beverage Dispenser / 3 Gallons 
This attractive 3 Gallon Square Glass Infusion Jar is perfect for relaxation rooms! Ideal for tea bags, limes, lemons, cucumbers, oranges, etc. to infuse into cold water.

"Fruit, Herb and Flower Infusions can turn
the ordinary into the extraordinary!"

Our elegant decanters are specially designed to hold a generous 50 oz. and complement our vials in form and size.

VitaJuwel is the most hygienic and efficient method to prepare gem water. And it's easy! Just place a VitaJuwel gem vial in drinking water for 7-10 minutes and enjoy gemwater, the true elixir of life!

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!

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!
