NICE! Polished Amethyst Tealight Holder...

I was in the Pure Spa Direct shipping department the other day and something super cool caught my eye... and no, it was not Steve our Shipping Manager.  It was a client's order being packed for Polished Amethyst Tealight Holders.  Seriously, they are awesome.  Beautiful to look at, oddly nice to hold.


Amethyst, long prized in jewelry for its beautiful, violet coloring and within the spiritual community for its energetic qualities, is a beautiful crystal showing up in deposits where its many facets glisten with a deep, resonating purple. Now, such a deposit has been polished smooth and shaped to create a uniquely beautiful candle holder.

With an opening measuring approximately 1 1/2" in diameter, it can easily contain a small pillar candle or a tealight candle, which would leave the many facets of the amethyst crystal surrounding it glowing brightly with the warm light of the candle you place within it. Use it to decorate your treatment rooms, home (or place upon your altar to aid in candle magic and crystal healing, where it can help empower your psychic abilities and otherwise aid rituals and healing of the mind).

Each candle holder is shaped from a natural formation of amethyst, resulting in each candle holder possessing a unique size and shape.

I loved them so much that I ordered some for myself!

Helichrysum Essential Oil - The Oil of Immortality

One of the biggest benefits of working at Pure Spa Direct is receiving product feedback from our clients.  A client recently introduced me to Helichrysum Pure Essential Oil, so I wanted to pass the information on to our lovely readers.

Now that we are in the summer season, there will be a surge of clients who will be seeking sunburn and/or skin healing treatments. Helichrysum Essential Oil is a necessary addition to your services due to its many beneficial properties, including:



  • Anti-Microbial - Prevents microbial infections.
  • Anti-Inflammatory - Reduces inflammation. 
  • Fungicidal - Prevents fungicidal infections.
  • Anti-Haematoma - Prevents and clears blood clots.
  • Emollient - Promotes skin hydration.
  • Cytophylactic - Production of new cells.

Helichrysum can be used for all of your clients, including those who experience:

  • Skin trauma
  • Scaring
The best way to incorporate Helichrysum essential oil is to mix it with apricot seed or grape seed carrier oils and apply to the skin during a facial massage.  The natural floral scent of the oil can stand alone and also blends very well with Lavender, Neroli and Ylang-ylang essential oils.

Trending Now for Estheticians: Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber

One of the most important components of a facial is a deep clean. Clients who come to your spa for regular facials crave a deeper cleaning of their pores and skin than they can achieve at home. What is an effective way of giving your clients what they want? Using an Ultrasonic skin scrubber, that's how!


Every day, new skin cells are formed at the bottom layer of the epidermis to replace the skin cells we shed from the top layer. The upper layers of the epidermis are often clogged with dirt, oil, and dead skin cells, causing the skin to lose radiance and appear dull. Ultrasonic skin scrubbers (often referred to as "skin scrubbers" or "skin spatulas") utilize ultrasound waves to speed up the natural exfoliation process, loosening and removing this oil, dirt, and other cellular debris from the pores on the surface of the skin. This is a deep exfoliation process which often results in glowing, more youthful-looking skin. 


Following exfoliation, switch your skin scrubber to the Sonophoresis mode for maximum penetration of your ampoules, toner and moisturizers of choice!


Benefits of Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber:

  • Improves appearance of Acne
  • Removes Blackheads
  • Diminishes Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Improves Collagen and Elastin production for Firming and Tightening
  • Allows for Deeper Penetration of Skin Care Products

Skin scrubbers are safe for a wide variety of skin types, including skin with:

  • Sensitive Skin
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Aging Skin
