Storage Matters

Experienced spa professionals know: storage matters. With so many many supplies, clients, and pieces of bulky equipment floating around, your once spacious area can gradually be pushed to its limits over time. Fight the clutter with stylish and functional storage units that keep your space open and uncluttered, while enhancing the luxurious experience your clients looks for.

Eyes closed in meditative contemplation, mouth bent slightly in a peaceful smile, the divine countenance of the Buddha is lovingly rendered on this beautiful trunk. The hues of the print are enhanced by the matching faux leather edges and metal fixtures featuring a brushed brass finish. An inconspicuous interior arm conveniently holds the lid when you need the trunk open, and a pair of external closures keep it shut tight when you don't. The sturdy wooden interior is lined with soft fabric, giving protection and padding for your possessions, and granting you peace of mind befitting a Bodhisattva.




Create a cool haven of relaxation with the warmth of rattan. These tightly woven pieces are handcrafted using time-honored techniques and adds style to any ambiance. Your clients will appreciate the little things, like hand woven baskets, and other naturally beautiful materials. Measures 9” diameter, 10” in height.






Coordinated to look fantastic from every side, a classic European damask pattern has been printed on high-quality canvas and wrapped around a sturdy yet surprisingly lightweight wooden frame. Featuring an inconspicuous arm to hold the lid open and external clasps to keep it shut tight, this chest is a perfect marriage of form and functionality. Faux leather edges protect the canvas and a soft, fabric lined interior cushions your possessions, bringing you comfort and security at a great value.

Oh Honey, Honey

Honey is unlike any other ingredient in nature and has yet to be synthesized in a chemistry lab! This rich, wonderfully scented Midnight Honey Bath and Beauty Oil is an inspired preparation --true, elegant, and complex in its ability to deeply condition the skin, while restoring suppleness and unleashing the senses.

NEW! Farmaesthetics Bath and Beauty Oil - Midnight Honey / 7 oz.

INSPIRATION:
Nature's most mysterious elixir... honey is unlike any other ingredient in nature and has yet to be synthesized in a chemistry lab! Farmaesthetics' richly round, darkly-scented Midnight Honey Bath and Beauty Oil, is an inspired preparation – true, elegant, and complex in its ability to deeply condition the skin, while restoring suppleness and unleashing the senses. Use in massage, bath, shower, or as a beauty oil for spot treating dry or patchy areas of skin. Apply after bathing when body is still damp, to wrap the skin in rich, warm moisture. (For external use only even though it smells good enough to eat!)

Arnica:
Arnica is highly regarded in herbalism for its ability to diminish bruising and swelling in skin tissue. Arnica has a complex chemistry, but simply put, the herb works to affect the blood vessels so that there is rapid reduction of inflammation, the kind associated with injured tissue. A capful used in external massage or in a warm bath soak, is a simple, effective way to introduce Arnica into the system, while at the same time conditioning the skin & improving circulation. Dermatologists are now recognizing the many benefits of Arnica for patients following laser or plastic surgery.

Applications & Benefits:
Luscious, herbal massage oil for moisturizing and conditioning the whole body complexion.
Luxurious and emollient when used in the bath or applied after shower as body oil.
Great for use in full body massage, having lots of "slip" for easy application and a heady honey scent that releases with friction of massage.
Best applied on damp, warm skin.
Soy has the added benefits of phytoestrogens, said to have balancing effects on irregular hormonal activities.

AS USED IN PROFESSIONAL TREATMENTS:

  • Use as a deep conditioning massage oil for body.
  • Use in Farmaesthetics Cornmeal Scrub treatments.
  • Use in bath to release emollient benefits of soy oil and honey absolute.

Key Ingredients:
Soy Oil: One of the high-grade, cosmetic grade carrier oils. Especially chosen for its softening, uncomplicated chemistry... light enough for massage, yet safe for those with nut allergies. Very emollient and soothing to the skin.
Honey Absolute: Whether in absolute form, used for its rich round scent to "perfume" preparations, or used in its whole form to soften and soothe the skin, honey is nature's most mysterious ingredient. It holds constituents that help heal the skin, protect against infection, and soften and even the complexion to achieve a healthy "glow".
Vitamin E: Used to stabilize all of Farmaesthetics natural non-aqueous formulations. Benefits in restoring skin's elasticity. Assists in healing scars and preventing stretch marks in skin that is being stretched from pregnancy or weight gain.

Sweet soy oil*, honey absolute and vitamin E (certified organic ingredients*)
