Turn Your Shower Into a Spa Experience

Turn Your Shower Into a Spa Experience

“Self-care” is definitely a popular buzzword that’s floating around the internet recently, but there really is some truth to being sure that you are taking care of yourself mind, body, and soul. How can we make that happen in such a fast-paced environment that we live in? Are we supposed to take a trip to the spa every week for an hour-long massage? Get 12 hours of sleep every night? Hire a personal chef to make sure all our meals are healthy and balanced?

No, not necessarily. Some of those things are impractical and impossible! One of our favorite ways to practice self-care is to turn an everyday shower experience into a spa-like experience. With our Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMists, this is easy, effective, and an inexpensive way to make self-care a priority!

Because we have a wide variety of infusions available, here are some of the ways that you can use our most popular types:

If you are looking for a relaxing and calming shower experience, try our Lavender-Infused Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist. Lavender essential oil has a calming scent which makes it an excellent tonic for the nerves and anxiety issues. Beautiful, pungent lavender has been shown to be helpful in treating migraines, headaches, depression, nervous tension, and emotional stress. The refreshing aroma removes nervous exhaustion and restlessness while also increasing mental activity.

If you are looking for a refreshing experience, our Citrus-Infused Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMists is a good option! This product starts with our Pure Eucalyptus oil infused with a blend of the delightful citrus oils orange, lemon, grapefruit, and lime. With scents that are fresh and vibrant – no perfume smell masking the all-natural ingredients – every breath you take while delivering the benefits of these quality oils. A lively and invigorating scent that will energize and refresh you, while reducing stress and uplifting your mood.

Try the Mint-Infused Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist for a fresh and tingling experience. Mint provides relief from stress, depression and mental exhaustion. The fresh tingly sensation will awake your senses, and help combat anxiety and restlessness. Mint stimulates mental activity, clears the mind, and increases focus on cognitive tasks.

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.

Give Your Dad the Gift of Aromatherapy for Father’s Day

Give Your Dad the Gift of Aromatherapy for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is right around the corner, and you might be having a hard time coming up with ideas to get your dad or father figure in your life. Maybe he’s the person who seems to have everything he wants already. Or maybe you’re just tired of getting him a new tie every year and you want to change it up and do something a little more meaningful.

Instead of something generic, how about giving your dad the gift of aromatherapy? Not only will it be a change of pace for most dads or father figures, it’s also giving him a gift with incredible health benefits. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Aromatherapy Diffuser
One easy way to start implementing aromatherapy into your dad’s every day is by getting him a diffuser. He can plug it in next to his bed, in the kitchen, or even on his desk at the office. To use the diffuser, he just needs to fill the reservoir with water and spritz a couple of sprays of one of our many varieties of 100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMists before turning it on. Depending on the benefit that he is looking for (calming vs. energizing, for example) will change the type of ShowerMist that he uses.

Menthol Crystals and Warmer
Our Menthol Crystals were originally developed to create an amazing aromatherapeutic effect in saunas, similar to what you’d get in a Eucalyptus steam room. But the great thing is that your dad can get that effect right in his home! Menthol Crystals can be used deodorize a room, but also help with coughing, congestion, headaches, and upper respiratory problems.

100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist
Our 100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMists are multi-purpose and really pack an aromatherapy punch. Because they come in a variety of infusions, you can really customize the type of experience that you’re giving your dad. For example, if you know that he’s been stressed lately and could use some relaxation, he might like the Lavender-Infused Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist. If he is wanting to feel more energized in the morning, he could try the Citrus-Infused Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist in his morning shower for a boost. They are so simple to use — just run a hot shower and spritz a few sprays into the steam (away from your face). That’s all the steps to the aromatherapy benefits!

Using Essential Oils for a Natural Energy Boost

Using Essential Oils for a Natural Energy Boost

If we’re being honest, most of us probably deal with low energy at least once in awhile. This could be from a variety of factors: lack of sleep, hormonal imbalance, stress, poor eating habits, and so much more. Instead of resorting to energy drinks or shots of espresso (which will most likely make you crash even harder after their effects wear off!), try using essential oils as a natural and more sustainable energy boost.

Three of our favorite oils for a natural energy boost are Eucalyptus, Citrus, and Peppermint. All of these oils have dozens of amazing properties, and boosting energy is one of them! Just a sniff or two can be enough to invigorate you during that 2pm slump.

Here are a few more ways to use these oils for a natural energy boost:

Add them to your diffuser

A diffuser is a great way to get all the benefits of essential oils while going about your day. It’s easy and makes your home smell amazing. You don’t just have to use one of these oils at a time – try making your own cocktail of essential oils!

Citrus oils combined with peppermint are a great wintery combination that will not only energize you, but will help cleanse the air in your home and improve focus.

Apply topically

Rub a few drops of either Eucalyptus, Citrus, or Peppermint Oil on your temples (be careful around your eyes!) and on other pressure points like your wrists to get the benefits into your system. After you apply, take a few deep breaths directly from the bottle for an instant pick-me-up.

Use our ShowerMists

Run a steamy shower in the morning and spritz a few sprays of either our 100% Pure Eucalyptus, Citrus-Infused, or Mint-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMists into the steam. Or you can try mixing them like in your diffuser! This is a great way to get all the benefits of these amazing essential oils into your system right away in the morning.

Beating a Cough and Congestion with Eucalyptus

Beating a Cough and Congestion with Eucalyptus

This time of year, many of us get at least one bout of congestion or a cough (or both at the same time!). And with the holidays coming up, no one has time to get sick with all the festivities and gatherings with family and friends! Eucalyptus has been used for years and years to relieve both coughing and congestion with much success. Just one little whiff can clear your sinuses!

Here are a few ways that you can use Eucalyptus to keep yourself healthy this season:

Use an Aromatherapy Diffuser

Diffusers are a great way to get essential oils like Eucalyptus in the air of your home to reap all their benefits. Just fill up the tank with water, spritz some Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist into the water, and start diffusing. Keep it running while you go about your day and then keep it by your bed to run at night when congestion and coughs seem to get worse.

Make a natural chest rub

A great way to relieve coughs and congestion is to make a natural chest rub. This is easy AND effective. Just melt down two tablespoons of shea butter in a double boiler, remove from heat, add 12 drops of Eucalyptus Oil and 12 drops of Lavender Oil, stir together, and carefully transfer to a container with a tight-fitting lid, and wait for it to set. Use this chest rub at night and your sinuses will thank you!

Take a therapeutic shower

Moisture and humidity are very helpful when it comes to coughs and congestion. Run a steamy-hot shower and use any of our ShowerMists to turn a simple shower into a healing and relaxing experience. Before bed, try our Lavender-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist to make sure you get all the benefits of Eucalyptus (decongestant, antibacterial, antiviral, etc.) while also getting all the benefits of Lavender to help you sleep better at night. When you get up in the morning, use our Citrus-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist to make sure you are invigorated and ready to take on the day!

Having a cold and being congested isn’t fun, but these natural solutions will help you feel better in no time.
