Do Not Finalize Your Spa Design Until You See These Spa Beds!

The look and feel of your spa is the heart of your business, and finding the perfect table to fit that feel is key to making your spa rooms feel cozy and comfortable.

There are as many different styles as there are people, and spa furniture, contrary to some beliefs, is not one-size-fits-all! Luckily, Living Earth Crafts has taken on this issue and created a line of spa beds that incorporate the technical and groundbreaking features that set this bed apart, with a multitude of style options to help you design the spa of your dreams!

The groundbreaking Nuage line features LEC9s proprietary Electra-Glide™ lift actuators, the quietest, smoothest, all-electric lifting actuators in the market today. An amazing Softstart/Softstop™ feature gives a subtle, almost imperceptible, elevator type feel as the table gently whisks clients up and down. This table has been designed from the ground up for ultra-reliability and minimal maintenance requirements in the most intensive spa environments.

Available in 4 distinctive base options:

Pedestal Base



Contemporary Cabinetry

I Drank Gem Water And I Liked It!

I admit it. I love all things magical, esoteric, vibrational and unexplainable. Essences, oils, shamans, crystals, herbs, potions, lotions and just good ole’ spiritual healing on this earthly plane. I call it being “spiritual”, my mother-in-law calls it “A bunch of HOOEY”.

The one thing I know for sure, is that when I am using

Vibrant Carnelian
(the “Stone of Life” in Ancient Egypt)

natures tools, my whole body feels it… and I FEEL GOOD. So that’s why I wanted to write about

I ran into the reps of VitaJuwel at the IESCS in Las Vegas last summer. There are thousands of vendors selling their wares, but walking by the VitaJuwel booth was different… very different … there was a palpable energy coming off their booth, it was… humming. These exceptionally beautiful hand blown crystal wands cradling earth’s precious gemstones stopped me dead in my tracks. These were much more than water infusers – they were STUNNING works of art and I was able to stop briefly and exchange business cards with the reps until my business partner came and grabbed me by the ear, eager to move along. Now, almost nine month later, I am so proud to announce that Pure Spa Direct is distributing VitaJuwel to Spas, Salons and Wellness Centers.

Seven years ago, VitaJuwel revolutionized a way to prepare vital and fresh water. Following age-old traditions, they created gemstone vials to ‘hygienically inspirit drinking water’. Their vision is to provide clients with natural gem water, as if were fresh from the spring!

VitaJuwel gem vials are made from lead-free glass and hand-picked gems. There are several
different gem blends, tested by European naturopaths and based on the insights of modern crystal healing.


All VitaJuwel products are designed with devotion in the German alpine uplands, tested by friends all over the world and traditionally hand-crafted in a patented, artisan method by master glassblowers in Bohemia.

So I drink my VitaJuwel Passion water everyday – and my body loves it. I make a pitcher of water and put in my Passion crystals from “Dr. Moto Crystal Passion” which is Carnelian and Halite salt.

Some of you may remember Dr. Emoto from film, “What the Bleep Do We Know“, a film that references our spiritual connection between quantum physics and consciousness.

Dr. Emoto’s mission was to raise people9s passion for vital water, and VitaJuwel deeply shares this goal. To honor Dr. Emoto’s lifetime achievements, they created this matchless combination of vibrant Carnelian (the “Stone of Life” in Ancient Egypt) and Halite (the “Salt of Kings”). Carnelian plays a leading role in the famed crystal healing tradition of 12th-century Benedectine abbess St. Hildegard of Bingen. Like no other stone it symbolizes the joy of living. Open yourself to his exquisite gemstone blend and absorb its radiating joy with every passionate sip of gem water.

Tearing Down Sterotypes – One Wax at a Time

As you may have noticed, we Pure Spa Direct team members are a little obsessed with waxing. We love the trends, we love trying new wax, and we love reading about it all!

Skin Inc magazine published a fantastic article regarding the shifting trends in waxing recently. In the article “The Changing World of Hair Removal,” Cali VanAelst, national trainer for Cirepil by Perron Rigot, explores how waxing is breaking stereotypes – being beauty stereotypes, gender stereotypes, and more.

The beauty industry is one of acceptance and empowerment, and no one is in a better place to promote body positivity than a waxer! Just because your client is there to get a Brazilian doesn’t mean she also wants an underarm wax…..but maybe she does! Figuring out how to offer add-on services in an understanding manner is going to be key, and those in the industry who nail that will see much success.


Cirepil, one of America’s best-selling wax brands, is taking a very open and broad approach. This year, they have introduced their new Tattoo wax – wax designed not only to remove hair but also to refresh tattoos!

The beauty of our industry is the beauty of all people, and we love brands who are supportive!

What stereotypes have you seen being broken recently?

Hey, Where’s My Stuff? 2021 Global Shipping Crisis

The dreaded phrase….”That item is currently backordered.” We are hearing this phrase everywhere…here at Pure Spa Direct, at your other vendors, at the furniture store, even lumber is sometimes not available these days!

What the heck is going on?

The world – literally the entire globe – is currently experiencing a “Shipping Crisis.”

What does that mean??

In short – manufacturers worldwide are struggling to get their products into the hands of consumers. In our global economy, goods are made in one place to be sold in another place. During normal times, this is a process most consumers don’t even need to think about. Companies manufacture their products, transport them from their factory to their local port by truck, then the goods are loaded onto ships and brought to ports around the world. Once in those ports, the goods are separated onto trucks and transported to stores and warehouses. Companies will occasionally run into a hiccup – maybe their goods will be slightly more popular than they projected, and their stock will sell out faster than the replenishment stock arrives, or possibly a container gets held up up Customs for an extended verification check, so the deadlines are pushed back.

In the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, however, there are hiccups at every single point in the supply chain. Factories are short-staffed in many places, as are trucking companies, ports, and warehouses around the world. People who were under strict lock-downs around the world began ordering more goods for delivery than ever before, filling up shipping containers with products that wouldn’t normally be shipped in those massive quantities. Trucking companies around the world are also experiencing driver shortages, due to illness, quarantine, extended home obligations, and more. There are shipping delays, port congestion, vessel shortages, truck shortages, rail shortages, and more.

These disruptions in the global supply chain have led to a massive shipping crisis. According to Sea-Intelligence, a leading provider of Research & Analysis, Data Services, and Advisory Services within the global supply chain industry, currently 78% of ships arriving at US West Coast ports are late, and where it used to take a shipment approximately 35 days from loading in Shanghai to delivery in warehouses in Chicago, it is now taking an estimated 73 days – more than double the time it took prior to the pandemic.

Unfortunately, this crisis will not be resolved overnight. We may be seeing extended delays for much of 2021. Pure Spa Direct knows you rely on us for all of your business needs, and please understand that we are working with our extensive network of vendors to keep all of your favorite products in stock. If your favorite items do become backordered, be sure to reach out to us – we have lots of options, and will be happy to find you comparable products to ensure you are able to continue offering your services to your clients!
