Boost Your Energy Naturally with Essential Oils

Boost Your Energy Naturally with Essential Oils

Energy slumps happen throughout the day, but essential oils provide a natural, aromatic way to get those energy levels back up quickly. Here are our three favorite picks, all of which are proven to awaken your senses and help you function at your best all day long.

A Gentle Jolt: Citrus

For a natural, energetic boost, reach for a citrus blend of essential oils. The zesty, upbeat scents of orange, lemon, grapefruit, and lime provide a powerful, energetic kick when you need it most. It’s a lively scent that will leave you feeling energized, refreshed, and ready to tackle whatever comes your way.

Citrus also aids in reducing stress and sharpening your ability to focus. Our Citrus-Infused 100% Pure Eucalyptus Shower Mist gives a gentle jolt in the morning without compromising your skin. You can also diffuse citrus at your desk to keep your creative juices flowing throughout the day. 

Pep in Your Step: Peppermint

Put a little “pep” in your step with peppermint! As one of the most popular essential oils, the uplifting scent of peppermint can lift your energy levels. Whether you’re feeling the afternoon energy slump or want a quick pick-me-up before a workout, peppermint provides a stimulating, invigorating boost.

The aroma of peppermint can even be a natural, non-toxic replacement to sipping a sugary drink or cup of coffee. Try starting your day with a hot shower and our Mint-Infused 100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist for a boost.

Prepare at Night: Lavender

Finally, as the old saying goes, we’re only as good as our weakest link. And in this case, you’re only as good as the sleep you’re getting each night. If you’re feeling drained and depleted during the day, set yourself up for a dream-filled slumber with the use of lavender. 

Lavender is known for it’s calming, soothing properties. The sweet, floral scent can quiet your mind and bring relief from stress. By diffusing lavender in your room at night or giving your pillow a quick mist of lavender-infused spray, you’re promoting peaceful sleep and giving yourself the best chance to wake up feeling refreshed.

Did you know? Our Lavender-Infused Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist doubles as a safe and natural pillow mist. Simply spritz a few sprays on your pillow, wait a few seconds for it to dry, and rest easy knowing you’re taking strides toward a night of peaceful sleep.

Why You Should Diffuse Eucalyptus in Your Spa this Fall

Why You Should Diffuse Eucalyptus in Your Spa this Fall

The woody-sweet scent of eucalyptus is refreshing, energizing, and pleasing to many. When diffused in your spa this fall, it can be an exhilarating part of your customer’s experience.

Follow Your Nose: Scent Marketing
Think back to your most favorite holiday as a child. (Christmas or Thanksgiving, perhaps?) You can envision the lights, the sounds, and — most likely — the smells from that time of year as well. Cookies baking, peppermint candies, or even the scent of a breeze through an open window might come to mind.

That’s because the sense of smell is powerful and can stir up a memory or evoke an emotional response. And it’s the same for your customers. You can build responses and create deeper connections through scent marketing, using the sense of smell to improve customer experience, nurture brand loyalty, and increase sales.

Large retail chains diffuse scents throughout the year to influence customer behavior and set themselves apart from the competition. Diffusing eucalyptus in your spa this fall will appeal to the emotional side of your customers and make for a memorable experience, one they will want to return to again.

Breathe Easy: Seasonal Allergies
Let your guests (and you and your staff!) breathe easier as they open the doors with the use of eucalyptus. Well-known for its aromatherapeutic benefits, this essential oil can help alleviate symptoms of a variety of ailments. This includes seasonal allergies, which affect so many people as summer turns into fall. 

However, relief can be found in your diffuser with eucalyptus. This fresh, healing oil is decongestant in nature. Eucalyptus is a top choice for seasonal allergy symptom relief. Your customers will enjoy the revitalizing, sensory pleasing effects along with the health benefits allowing them to breathe easy. 

Work With Less Effort: Clean as you Steam
Some of the same properties in eucalyptus that support health and allergy relief can keep your entire spa, steam room, or sauna clean in a natural, non-toxic way. The natural properties in eucalyptus oil wipe out germs without the need for harsh chemicals. 

As a spa owner or operator, you can put these wonderful properties to work effortlessly for you. Eucalyptus oil will clean and prevent mold and mildew — while you steam! This is a benefit on top of the uplifting scent your guests will love.

If you are ready to utilize the benefits of eucalyptus in your spa, our Mystifier Automatic Injection system will help immensely! This device was developed in response to numerous requests from our customers seeking to eliminate hand spraying. Learn more here.

Natural Menstrual Pain Relief

Natural Menstrual Pain Relief

For many women, the pain that comes along with their menstrual cycle can be truly debilitating. Sometimes it feels like there isn’t much that will work to relieve some of that pain other than strong painkillers, but there are some natural options that have proven to be helpful for many. Essential oils and other natural practices can be game-changing!

Here are a few natural options for natural menstrual pain relief:

Lavender Oil
When you have your monthly period, the uterus and surrounding blood vessels become inflamed, which can cause quite a bit of pain. Instead of powering through it or popping some pills one after another, lavender oil can help to take the edge off. Lavender is known for its calming properties, both on the mind and the muscles. Run a hot shower and use our Lavender-Infused 100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist to make this happen!

Applying Heat
Sometimes the most simple of remedies can have the biggest impact! Applying heat will help your muscles to relax and therefore help with cramps. You can do this by using an inexpensive heating pad from your local drugstore or soaking in a hot bath. Take this time to relax and take your mind off the discomfort that you’re feeling.

Peppermint Oil
Fluctuating hormones during your monthly cycle can cause headaches, nausea, and fatigue, but peppermint oil can help alleviate those symptoms! Peppermint oil can be used in a variety of ways to get relief from these symptoms, but one of our favorite methods is using our Mint-Infused 100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist. Run a hot shower and spritz a few sprays into the steam and away from your face. Breathing in those amazing benefits and relaxing in the hot shower will be sure to help.

Healthy Diet and Hydration
You might be rolling your eyes, but it’s true! Being vigilant about eating a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fruits, vegetables, nuts, lean proteins, and whole grains will help you stay healthy. When your body isn’t healthy, any pain or other issues will feel magnified. Hydration is also key. Dehydration can cause muscle cramps, which will make cramps feel even worse. Make sure your drinking that water — it makes a huge difference!

The Importance of Scent Marketing and Aromatherapy in Your Spa

The Importance of Scent Marketing and Aromatherapy in Your Spa

When you walk into your home after being away to college or even just on a vacation, one of the first things that you’ll notice is that comforting scent of home. That smell is made up of a combination of things, for better or for worse — the type of laundry detergent or cleaners that you use, if you have pets, essentials oils that you regularly diffuse, and what you cooked last will all be factors in how your home smells.

Your spa isn’t much different when it comes to scent. But in your spa, you should be using scent marketing to your advantage. Your facility may already smell good, but imagine what the results would be if you were intentional about the scents that you use?

What is scent marketing?

Scent marketing, scent branding, and aroma marketing all refer to the sensory marketing that targets the consumer’s sense of smell in order to improve the customer experience, increase sales, develop brand awareness, and nurture brand loyalty and connection.

Research has shown that scent has the ability to evoke an emotional response and is closely linked with memory, more than any of the other senses. And as many of us know from personal experience, scent can bring us right back to a moment in time, whether positive or negative. Smell is a powerful thing.

Why should you use scent marketing in your spa?

Because of the power that scent holds, you should be using it to your advantage when it comes to your spa. Retailers who use ambient scenting, or diffusing a pleasant aroma in a space, do so in order to influence customer behavior — their intention is to create a pleasant atmosphere with a scent that eventually nudges customers towards a purchase. Data has shown that people stay as much as 44% longer in businesses that smell good.

How can you use scent marketing in your spa?

For steam rooms, we have a total steam room solution with Pure Eucalyptus Oil in commercial sizes, variations, infusions, and custom-blended signature scents as well as our Mystifier Injection System for diffusing our oils into your steam room.

Saunas also benefit from aromatherapy, so use our Menthol Crystals for a dry heat-generated aromatherapeutic vapor. Our Menthol Crystals are available in two commercial sizes and can be used in other dry areas of your spa.

ShowerMists are excellent retail products that clients LOVE to take home! Attractive margins help turn your back room expense into front room revenues.

Health and Wellness Gifts for your Graduate

Health and Wellness Gifts for your Graduate

Ready or not, graduation season is upon us! The high school and college seniors in our lives will soon be completing their schooling and moving on to the next big chapter in their lives. To celebrate this big accomplishment, consider giving a gift that will help them to stay healthy and well during this next chapter of your graduate’s life.

Here are a few of our favorite products that we think your graduate would love to have as a gift to celebrate this big accomplishment:

Aromatherapy Diffuser
A diffuser can be used for several different purposes. In most on-campus housing situations, candles are not allowed in dorm rooms because they are a fire hazard. If your grad wants to keep his or her dorm smelling great while also getting benefits from essential oils, a diffuser is a great option!

To use a diffuser, simply fill the water tank and spritz a couple of sprays of one of our 100% Eucalyptus ShowerMists into the water and turn it on. Especially in a small space like a dorm room or small apartment, the scent will be strong, but not overpowering. For your grad, maybe gift them our Lavender-Infused Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMists so he or she can diffuse it next to their bed at night to help them sleep after a late night of studying.

Menthol Crystals and Warmer
For a student or someone entering the job market for the first time, Menthol Crystals can be a multi-purpose powerhouse. Our all-natural crystals are colorless and clear, and a natural by-product of steam-distilled peppermint essential oil. They can be used to deodorize a room from stinky clothes before your college student can get home to do laundry, and help relieve him or her from any illnesses they contract on campus because they will help to help relieve coughing, congestion, symptoms of the flu, and upper respiratory problems. At the very least, they are invigorating and help promote focus.

100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist
Especially if your student is living in a dorm, it can be hard to feel at home on campus. One way you can help is by giving them a gift that will turn their bathroom into a spa experience with our 100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMists. After running a hot shower, simply spritz a few sprays of the ShowerMist of your choice into the steam and away from the face. Your student’s bathroom in their dorm or first apartment will be transformed! Try gifting your student our Mint-Infused Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist so he or she can start their day focused and invigorated.

How will you be celebrating the grad in your life this spring?
