Salt of the Earth: A Comparison of Bulk Salts Offered By Pure Spa Direct

At Pure Spa Direct, we offer all types of bulk salts, whether they are from the Mediterranean Sea, the French Coast, the Dead Sea or the Himalayan Mountains. But its all just Sodium Chloride, right? The answer is a resounding NO – There are major differences that will have a definitive impact on your clients and the services your offer.

This particular type of salt is solar evaporated on the shores of the Mediterranean, meaning that sea water is left out in the sun to evaporate under natural conditions. Once the water has evaporated, pure sea salt crystals are revealed. This is probably one of the more popular salts since it is cost-effective, available in a multitude of grain sizes and it also dissolves quickly. Containing such minerals as Iodine, Fluorine, Magnesium and Potassium, this salt can be used as a soak and a scrub.

This Sea Salt is farmed from the Brittany Marshes off the coast of France using methods that have been in place for over 1000 years. Unrefined and full of trace minerals, this salt is actually lower in sodium and contains Calcium, Potassium, Copper, Zinc and Iron. While it can be used as a scrub, this salt is best used as a soak. Also, due to its excessively dry nature, it is able to absorb essential oils better than other salts. This is one of the best salts to use for aromatherapy.

Unlike the previous 2 types of salt, this particular sodium chloride is obtained not from the ocean, but rather the famed Dead Sea, a 3 million year old salt water lake. Another key difference is the fact that Dead Sea Salt only contains 10% sodium, and the remaining 90% is comprised essential minerals including Zinc, Iodine, Potassium, Calcium and Bromides. The effectiveness of the Dead Sea is not only due to the salt content, but also the atmosphere of the region. You can bring to Dead Sea to your spa, however, by creating custom soaks with the salt. Since it is so rich in minerals that the human body constantly needs to replenish, soaking treatments will provide the greatest benefits, but this salt can also be used as a scrub. Soaking in Dead Sea Salt has been shown to help treat such issues as cellulite, water retention, itching, acne, dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, scabies, dandruff and hair loss.
Mined from deep within the largest mountain range in the world, Himalayan Salts look more like coarse gemstones than chunks of salt. These completely pure salts were formed millions of years ago and have never been exposed to any types of pollutants or toxins. In addition to sodium, this salt also contains 84 trace minerals, including all 74 elements found in the human body. Himalayan Salt is best used for hydrotherapy treatments as submersion is the most efficient way to absorb the product. This salt has been shown to heal wounds and muscle injuries, repair skin texture and tone, combat cellulite and water retention, and even plump up the skin to fill out fine lines and wrinkles.

Brazilian Wax Spotlight- Vanilla

With all the variety of waxes these days, I thought I’d highlight one of my favorite scents and
consistencies, vanilla!

Ultra Flexxx Vanilla Hot Wax
This new “white wax” by Mancine is a stripless wax (also called hot wax and hard wax). It’s formulated for exceptional results using the most advanced technology.

It has a powerful grip, and perfect for Brazilians.

Also available in strip wax!

Ultra Flexxx Vanilla Shimmer Hot Wax
Based on a similar formula to Ultra Flexx White.
However, it has the advantage of a thinner application with a creamy formula and works well on sensitive skin.

Ultra Film provides a high-performance plastic texture wax with superior grip. It smells like Vanilla but has a slight shimmer to it from the added Mica.

Ultra waxes have a low melting point, are odorless, and will last one and a half times longer than most organic waxes.

2019 is upon us. For many, New Year’s means a time for renewal, for resolutions. Why not renew your spa’s look with some new Uniforms for your team?

Uniforms are a great way to distinguish employees from guests, as well as build your brand. Employees often feel a sense of unity with their fellow employees when everyone is equal in clothing, and they often have a positive impact on attitudes and morale.

Massage Must Have: Bolsters!

Bolsters help clients get comfortable and relax so you can give a better treatment. Bolsters are used to support clients, provide comfort, and aid the therapist by giving them access to the body. Choose from a variety of sizes, colors, and styles to meet the needs of every therapist, every client, and every treatment!

Use large round bolsters placed under the knees while a client is in the supine position to take the pressure off the lower back. Smaller round bolsters or half-round bolsters work well under the ankles and a small half-round bolster placed under the neck helps support the natural curve of the neck and gives therapists better access to the shoulders. Bolsters placed under the mid-thoracic area help keep pregnant clients or clients that have trouble breathing while in the supine position, in a more comfortable semi-reclined
position.

Take a look at some of the popular options and sizes below.

Jumbo – Full Round 9″ x 26″ by Stronglite

The Jumbo Round Bolster is a foam-filled bolster with zippered outer case and a strap handle. Great to support your client under the knees, ankles or use for side posture support.

Full Half Round Bolster by Earthlite

The Full Half Round Bolster is a foam-filled bolster with zippered outer case and a strap handle. It provides extra comfort and support and also helps to relieve muscle strain.

Comfort Bolster by EarthLite

The Comfort Bolster is a foam-filled bolster. It provides extra comfort and support for women’s breasts and helps to relieve muscle strain. The Comfort Bolster is an alternative to ordering a table with a breast recess option as it serves a similar purpose. It can be used with any massage table.

Remember, your clients are paying for comfort, make sure you have everything you need to ensure they have the best experience possible. That way, you know they will be back!

Shellac Attack!- The Nail Biter Experience- Day 1 – Review by Kerri

The joke around the office is that the new CND Shellac is the best
invention since the Internet, and for us ladies it just might be!

Since the beginning of manicure history, a 14-day manicure has always
been unheard of – especially if you9re like me who has been plagued by
nail and cuticle biting their entire life! From the moment I heard
about this, I could not wait for our CND Shellac Kits to arrive. And
today, for the first time, I was “shellacked.” I’ve always been
partial to a glamorous light pink so I selected the CND Shellac
Romantique as my color of choice. I had my nails pre-manicured and my
cuticles clipped. With each coat that was applied, I became more and
more excited to see the finished product. I could not believe how fast
the UV lamp cured the nails. I am so used to waiting for my nails dry,
that I had to be reminded that it was okay to fix my hair with my
freshly painted nails, the minute after we finished! Most importantly,
my nails have stayed far away from my mouth. Even an habitual nail
biter wouldn’t want to chomp on these perfectly polished and shiny
nails. 1st day=Success!

Want A Healthier Life, Kola Is The Answer

This type of Kola is not just good for you, it is great for you. Gotu Kola is a plant that has many healing and calming effects, I’m surprised more don’t use it. In Ayurvedic Medicine, it is said to be one of the most important rejuvenating herbs. It can be used as a pure blood tonic and for skin health. Fortifying the immune system, Gotu Kola both cleanses and feeds resulting in the strengthening of the adrenal glands. Helping people who practice yoga to improve their meditation practices, this herb’s calming properties make it happen. It’s said to develop the crown chakra, the energy center at the top of the head, and balances the left and right hemispheres of the brain. If you have a medi-spa that focuses on the more natural and herbal approach to healing, this is the perfect item to purchase for your services.

The Gotu Kola Powder has chemical constituents that aids in wound healing and acts as a strong anti-inflammatory agent. It affects various stages of tissue development:
  • helps the process of replacing skin after sores or ulcers
  • synthesis of collagen
  • stimulation of hair and nail growth

The herb has been used successfully to help with inflammation of veins, varicose veins, leg cramps, swelling of the legs and heaviness and tingling in legs. Use the powder we have available at Pure Spa Direct to mix in with your solutions or creams to help your clients have better results with the issues they may be having.
