Nature's Botox: Emu Oil

Although not entirely mainstream just yet, did you know that emu oil has a plethora of health and beautifying benefits ? Sounds obscure, I know, but I was inspired to write about the lovely benefits of this miracle oil after seeing a sign on a health food store in my city that deemed 'Emu Oil is Nature's Botox.' I did research, read some articles, and came to the conclusion that this could be next in line to coconut oil which is currently my favorite beautifying oil. Sounds promising if you ask me! What (or who?!) is an emu, you ask? If you didn't know, an emu is actually a bird that can grow up to six feet tall and is native to the land down under of Australia. For quite an odd looking bird, (picture a goofy looking gigantic ostrich!), the oil they produce is magical to say the least! You can definitely add a unique skin care service to your spa for your clients who are looking to rejuvenate their skin. Check out some of emu oil's health benefits below!




  • Filled with Vitamin A and Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, emu oil can help to repair skin damage through antioxidant properties.
  • Why is it called nature's botox? High in oleic acid, this can help to regenerate skin cells and prevent wrinkles.
  • Leave your client's skin feeling super soft with emu oil, as it contains sapogens which are natural skin softeners.
  • Some evidence based clinical trials have even confirmed that emu oil acts as an anti-inflammatory which can be effective for irritated skin.
  • It can also be effective as a moisturizer when applied topically. 

We carry pure emu oil at Pure Spa Direct which you can incorporate into your spa's services! Use it during facial treatments, or even use our Organic Emu Massage Lotion during massage services as well. Change up your menu and get your client's hooked on this beautifying oil!

Mix it up with Dappen Dishes!

Dappen Dishes were all the rage last week. We sold a cases of the clear ones, plastic ones, and green ones. The most popular, however, was the clear glass dappen dishes. To me, they just look like mini shot glasses... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Dappen Dish selection HERE!

It's Common Scents...First Impressions Are Everything!

When you enter a room, what's the first thing you notice? It's usually the scent. According to an article I read, smell is the most sensitive of the senses. People can remember smells with 65% accuracy after a year, while visual recall is about 50% after three months. Crazy how that works, right! If you really want your spa to stand out, why not liven up your client's senses with room spray. Not sure where to begin? We have a great light called Pure Light that carries organic room sprays. You can even use them on linens to freshen up your sheets! Make your rooms memorable by having a different scent in each room! Check out my top 3 scents below:



Rainforest is a beautiful, sweet earthy scent, beginning with a base of European black pine and wild berries. Woody tonka bean and cedarwood gently unfold with a touch of rose and a sprinkle of cinnamon to complete this unique all-natural harmony. It's a great scent for fall which is rapidly approaching!










Aloha is a sumptuous blend of tropical mojo. Sun-drenched fruits and flowers create an ambiance of warmth with this aromatic masterpiece. This scent might immediately make your clients feel like their on a vacation in the tropics!











Zen Garden is smooth and sophisticated with a delicate blend of aloe and green tea. Make your clients feel like they're in a relaxing Japanese Garden with this spray!





Pure Light also has candles in the same scents that are 100% natural and made with an exclusive blend of certified organic coconut wax, pure essential oils, and a textile grade cotton wick. They’re biodegradable, soot-free, clean burning, and hand poured in the USA! Make your clients remember your spa by its scent with these lovely, natural aromas.

Shave in Style with The Peanut

Grooming is one of the many activities that men try to avoid on a daily basis, as it's time consuming and it certainly be difficult to master the art of shaving. I'm sure you see male clients regularly at your salon who are in need of a quick shave, and they might even ask you tips on products and shaving tools to keep up their grooming at home. If you're in need of a new grooming product for men, I highly recommend The Peanut by Wahl. Introduced in 2007, its funky peanut design and small size gives makes it a favorite among men! It's also very small, lightweight and extremely portable making it easy to use on your clients. I find the peanut shaped design to be clever (and cute!), and Wahl is most certainly a reputable brand for grooming products. We have different variations to choose from:



The Wahl Peanut is the original clipper of this style that first came out. It weighs less than 4 oz. and is less than 4" long! It has the power and performance of a full-size clipper with the versatility of a heavy-duty trimmer, but is tinier than most. It also comes with four snap-on combs!










The Peanut also has a cordless version you can retail to your busier clients who are always on the go! Great for travelling, this portable battery-operated clipper has 45 minutes of cutting time per battery.






The Peanut also comes in black for your more stylish male clients who want a different look than the original! View all of our different Peanut Clippers here!
