Using Essential Oils for Your Home Spa

Used across the globe for centuries, plant essences played a substantial role in medicinal preparations and religious ceremonies. These essences evolved to what we now know as essential oils. While still used for medical and religious purposes, essential oils developed a contemporary following for relaxation, massage and skincare and as a mood booster. Lemongrass Spa Products mission is not only to provide fresh, clean & natural products for the entire family but also to provide an indulgent spa experience from the comfort of your own home. Here are some tips and recipes for enhancing your home spa experience using essential oils.

Diffusing

Create a romantic, uplifting, relaxing or other desirable ambiance by diffusing essential oils in your home or car. People diffuse oils purely for the love of a scent, aromatherapy benefits or both. Whatever your reason, it is recommended you use an electric nebulizer or diffuser (steam or fan) to maintain the molecular integrity of the compound because essential oils can breakdown if exposed to heat. Lemongrass Spa Products now offers three diffuser choices: Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser (steam), Aroma to Go Portable Diffuser (fan) and a new Car Diffuser (fan). Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the diffuser to enjoy the aroma throughout your home or car. As an added bonus, a study published in t

he Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy suggests diffusing essential oils could be effective in fighting certain air born bacteria.

Ingredient Spotlight: 3 Benefits of Cocoa Butter

Richly hued with the faint scent of chocolate, cocoa butter (Theobroma Cacao) is the naturally occurring fat in cocoa pods that is extracted by cold-pressing dried and fermented cocoa beans. Cocoa pods also produce cocoa liquor and cocoa powder, used in the production of delicious chocolate. Purportedly used by the Aztec and Mayan civilizations for medicinal and dietary reasons, cocoa butter is now found in cosmetics and skincare for the following skin nurturing benefits.

Anti Aging

High concentrations of fatty acids (oleic, palmitic and stearic), vitamins (A, B1, B2 and B3) and antioxidants (vitamins C and E) fight free radicals. Free radicals cause tissue damage, increasing the signs of aging such as wrinkles and sagging skin. Fatty acids also help cocoa butter penetrate the top layer of skin, lending to cocoa butter’s nickname, “ultimate moisturizer”.

Regeneration

Cocoa butter has been used for centuries to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Although there is limited research regarding the correlation between cocoa butter and disappearing scars, a few small studies showing the potential for cocoa butter to maintain skin’s suppleness and elasticity. Because hydration is known for improving the appearance of skin, applying moisturizing cocoa butter can be effective in reducing scars.

Ingredient Spotlight: Coconut Oil

The coconut fruit has provided meat, water, milk and oil to tropical communities for thousands of years and has been deemed “The Tree of Life” by Asian and Pacific islanders for its extensive dietary and medicinal applications. Mentions of the medicinal benefits of the coconut can be found in ancient Sanskrit text, and coconut oil is used in Ayurvedic medicine, an alternative healing process from India estimated to be 5000 years old. Traditional medicinal applications of coconut oil include fevers, nausea, rashes, toothaches, ulcers, colds, lice, bruises and more. 

At the end of World War II, coconut oil was found in the United States in the form of margarine, but it soon fell out of favor as a household staple due studies concluding all saturated fats increased cholesterol and risk for heart disease. It is now believed coconut’s unique combination of short and medium chained fatty acids, primarily lauric acid and myristic acid, precludes it from negatively impacting health.

Coconut oil isn’t just for cooking or alternative medicine; it’s one of the most widely used natural oils in personal care. Coconut oil is touted for its ability to do everything from repairing damaged hair to reducing wrinkles to blocking UV rays. Where there is little clinical evidence of coconut oil being a beauty miracle, there is plenty of antidotal evidence coconut oil is a master moisturizer and potent antioxidant.

Coconut oil is pressed from the seeds of the coconut palm tree and is comprised of fatty acids including lauric, linoleic, myristic, oleic, caprylic, capric, stearic and palmitric. Studies on the skin care benefits of these fatty acids lead skin care experts to believe coconut oil isn’t all hype. For example, lauric acid and caprylic acid could both be effective in fighting acne due to antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin E and vitamin D, potent antioxidants that protects skin from free radical damage, joins this fatty acid super group. Coconut oil penetrates the skin, making it the perfect vehicle to deliver the benefits of other natural oils and botanical extracts.

Nourish your body from head to toe with coconut oil by trying a few of these exfoliating, moisturizing and cleansing products:

2014 Year in Review

From opening a second distribution center in Florida to launching the revolutionary Prebiotic Body Wash to being named to the Top 100 Women Owned Companies, 2014 has been an incredible year for growth and opportunity. Here's our 2014 year in review.

Products

The introduction of innovative new products is one of the key elements in engaging our customers and creating excitement for our sales consultants. Roll-on deodorant in Fresh, Sport, Lavender and Unscented were introduced at the beginning of 2014. We launched a revolutionary Prebiotic Body Wash at our annual convention in Denver, Colorado in July. This organic, GMO-free product works on a molecular level by stimulating good microorganisms on the skin and promoting collagen production. Green Concealing Stick corrector, Organic Eye Makeup Remover, Stardust and Red Hot Lip Glosses, and Coral Blush were newcomers to the Sheer Minerals Makeup line. The Men’s Essentials organic skincare line was introduced featuring Shaving Crème, Body Wash, After Shave Lotion and Cleansing Gel, specially formulated for guys. Aromatherapy Mists featuring certified organic essential oil blends were introduced in five blends: Purifying Tea Tree, Lavender Relaxation, Citrus Refresher, Mint Revival and Balancing Act!

Community

We are incredibly grateful to the members of the community in Pine, Colorado who have supported us over the years. Five new employees were hired to help our expansion efforts, and we leased four additional suites in the business plaza. In July we began manufacturing and shipping from our second distribution center in Tarpon Springs, Florida with 10,000 square feet of office and warehouse space. Fourteen full-time team members are currently employed there. With both facilities fully operational, we realized a 2 to 4 day reduction in the turnaround time in shipping orders during the peak volumes: end-of-month and the holiday selling season.

D Parkhurst small  Each month Lemongrass Spa spotlights a consultant and that consultant’s successes in both business and personal life. This month Donna Parkhurst, Premier Director from Cle Elum, Washington reveals how she built a prosperous team by authentically sharing her story at parties and on social media. 

  Donna joined Lemongrass Spa three years ago, and in that time has earned two spa destination trips, three Director promotions, a spot on the Dynamic Dozen List (Top 12 in Sales) three years in a row, a $1000 Director Bonus and thousands of dollars a month in income. “In October alone I brought on 12 new teammates to my team and as an organization (my whole downline) we added 32 amazing ladies. We are experiencing an explosive growth and the momentum is just starting!” said Donna. 

We asked Donna to share her secret to success in building her team of close-knit teammates. “Honestly, I don't ever push anyone to join my team. I do, however, offer the opportunity and when the time is right, people decide to come on board. I had someone join my team just last week who came to a party 2 years ago and wanted to join then. However, it wasn't quite the best time for her to join. She was invited to another party of mine last week and when she saw me, she caught me by surprise by exclaiming she was ready to join my team—two years later!”

When Donna was asked about what makes her leadership effective, she commented, “I feel that most in my organization have developed a special bond and we truly are in this together, whether working the business very minimally or full-time. I am sincerely hoping to expand my team to include men as well because I have found that many guys are the biggest supporters of Lemongrass!”

When people meet Donna they quickly learn about her positive outlook, the gratitude in her heart and her faith in God. “From earning the extra stream of income that enables me to supply my children with music, martial arts, and other instruction and the flexibility to travel more extensively, to the friendships I've created within Lemongrass (hostesses, other consultants, customers, etc.), I feel richly blessed.  I feel empowered by the leadership training I've received from our company and I'm honored to be able to share that with other people as they join my Lemongrass team.”
