Party in the New Year with 50% More Host Rewards

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season has subsided and it’s time to rest, restore and rejuvenate your mind and body. New year, new you—isn’t that how the saying goes? Whether you’re a resolution-maker or just into going with the flow, January is all about you. Refocus, re-center and get your skin back to pre-holiday-insanity perfection. Wouldn’t your friends like an invite to join you? We've increased our host cash rewards in January by 50%. Pick a date, choose a theme and let’s party!

Here’s some spa party inspiration for you.

Winter skincare 101 

With so many parties, lots of drinking, eating and many carefree indulgences, combined with extreme weather conditions, the holiday season can easily be the worst time of year for your skin. Plus, keeping skin nice and hydrated throughout the winter can certainly be a challenge — especially if your skin is dry or sensitive. The most important thing you can do to is carve out time each morning and evening to do something to help you face the cold. During a “hands-on” facial class, you and your friends will find the right products to provide the moisture, vitamins and soothing properties your skin is begging for during winter months.

Short on time but still want to show your skin some TLC? Book a 30-minute Detoxifying Charcoal Facial party. Charcoal is the beauty ingredient of the moment thanks to its inherent purifying and deep cleansing abilities. It can now be found in everything from cleansers to face masks, plus it’s a hit with men, teens and tweens!

The Team Behind the Brand

What makes you happy at your job? Employers seek the answer to this question to attract and retain productive employees who also care about the company’s mission and success. Challenging tasks, a sense of belonging and the feeling of accomplishment are three primary reasons people find joy in what they do; you’ll also find these the prominent themes among Lemongrass Spa employees. Lemongrass Spa has evolved well beyond Heidi and Bryan Leist’s basement in the small mountain town of Bailey, Colorado, producing not only safe, natural products for families but opportunities for employees to explore and grow their careers. Today employees share what brings them happiness and pleasure working for Lemongrass Spa.

“I work with really great people!” Rachel, Production, Colorado FLHands1.jpg

“Because of our amazing consultants I have watched this business grow tremendously in just the short time I’ve been here. Each day I come to work I wonder what’s next for Lemongrass. With record-breaking sales and increased volumes I can’t wait to see what the future holds. There is no other place I would want to be but here, so that means you’re stuck with me! I feel like I can speak on behalf of everyone here when I say our number 1 commitment is you!!” Sean, Labeling Manager, Florida

“It’s an exciting experience seeing the company grow in all of its stages” Karen, Production, Colorado

“My favorite product – hands down – is our business opportunity! Each day I have the chance to help this company with our important mission, but also help women (& men) and moms build confidence, gain focus, gain clarity, cast a vision, feel empowered, and as such, change the trajectory of their lives.” #fieldofdreamers #becauseoflemongrassspa Kathy, National Field Developer, South Carolina

4 Steps to a Stress Free Holiday

It’s the time of year for celebration, gratitude and worship. Traveling, partying and shopping are the top three activities during the holiday season, and each of these affairs alone trigger some level of stress. Ease some of the seasonal pressure by following these four tips.

Plan & Prioritize

In all my attempts to plan ahead for our annual Thanksgiving gathering, there’s always a detail I missed. Has this happened to you too? Whether you’re hosting a formal affair or casual get-together, preparing ahead of time will reduce last minute stressors such as multiple trips to the store and frantic cleaning. Prioritize your tasks: must-be-done and would-love-to-do. Don’t pressure yourself to present a Martha Stewart-worthy soirée if this isn’t one of your strengths (it’s not mine); instead put the focus on where you excel so you can mingle and enjoy time with your guests.

A few tasks to consider completing a week or two leading up to your event:

  • Kitchen prep – are you cooking or catering? Can any portion of the food and drinks be prepared and frozen or made a few days ahead? If not, complete your slicing and dicing the day before.
  • Cleaning – it’s much easier to vacuum and wipe down counters the morning of your event than to try to clean your house from top to bottom.
  • Shopping – food, decorations or gifts, you won’t want to wait until and be stuck in long lines and crowded stores.

Quick, Healthy Recipes

Household Hacks Using Essential Oils

Our home environment is full of toxins from commercial cleaners, air fresheners containing artificial fragrances and personal care products. Using essential oils safely in the home can lessen the toxic load, and at the same time, provide therapeutic benefit.

There are many ways essential oils can be used in the home. Before you begin using them, please be sure you know the safety of the essential oil(s) you wish to use before making your choice. Choose essential oils safe for children, if children are present, and consider the health issues and medication(s) your guests may be on before diffusing. When diffusing, run the diffuser in shorter increments 10-15 minutes on/off at a time for maximum benefits.

Entryway

Placing a bowl of dried flowers or unscented potpourri in a bowl near the entry and sprinkling a few drops of essential oils on top can provide a welcome aroma when one walks through the door. Sweet Orange Essential Oil is fresh and inviting, but the possibilities are endless.

Soul-Soothing Stories

Soul-Soothing Stories of Cancer Survivors is a compelling book inspired by hundreds of people we’ve met over the years who have shared their inspirational stories of faith, bravery and love. The stories lovingly shared in this book are intended to be a source of light and hope for you or someone else you care about.

For years, I received personal testimonials from customers who used our natural skincare products. They raved about how much better their skin looked and felt after applying our crèmes, balms and body butters. Word spread quickly as consultants shared these powerful testimonials at their spa parties and on social media. One day I received an email from a clever sales consultant with the suggestion that we package three items together to be able to give to cancer patients. So, in 2013 we began offering our Cancer Care Set, which was eventually renamed the Loving Care Gift Set. Organic Skin & Nail Balm in a Tube, Healing Elements and Ultra Hydrating Body Crème became the magical trio in the pink or gray organza bag. Hundreds of them were ordered that year and story after story flooded our inboxes.

In 2014, in honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I decided that our corporate office would expand this program by sending Loving Care Gift Sets, free of charge, to anyone diagnosed with any type of cancer. The only prerequisite was that the recipient be nominated for the gift set by a loved one. Eloquently written nomination letters poured in and patients with tear-filled eyes gratefully accepted the gift that had arrived on their doorstep. Each package included a card to let them know that someone special had requested it on their behalf.

We continued the initiative each year and the numbers multiplied; hundreds of our customers took the time to nominate that special someone. Whether it was for a mother with breast cancer, a daughter with melanoma, a father with prostate cancer, a son with lymphoma or husband diagnosed with a brain tumor, these complimentary gifts helped thousands of deserving people. Our Facebook feed was filled with these heartfelt stories of gratitude and our home office team rejoiced in the success of the program. “We are truly a company with a heart” our sales leaders remarked.

The stories contained in this book are from customers and consultants who have walked a cancer journey. “Because of Lemongrass Spa, I am able to share my story and help educate others every single day,” said Heather P. Miller, a Senior Director with the company. Heather is breast cancer survivor, a military wife and mom of a teenage son.
