Mud and Scrub Bars are quickly becoming one of the ‘must haves’ in resort spas. That is exciting for us because it is easily incorporated into any size operation, from the wellness office to the day spa. I for one am so excited about adding this experience to my Spa Party Menu - Blending bars gone amok!
I have facilitated aromatherapy blending bars for decades and I have even dabbled in including some muds and scrubs in the medium /base selections. But man, these mud and scrub bars have come into their own. They have moved to center stage and aromatherapy is now the supporting cast. This Mud and Scrub Bar meets my yippee standard on so many levels. It is creative, therapeutic, easily organized, flexible and it’s versatile. And let’s not forget it's gossip worthy - Marketing rule # 134 : Give them something to talk about!
The Spa Bar concept gets its versatility from the array of products you can feature. For example let’s keep it basic and design one using Biotone Products exclusively. I would recommend this line because it is developed to be easy to work with in a dry room as well as wet environment. (After 20 years of teaching therapeutic spa, I can testify what a blessing this is) They also cover all the therapists’ needs in one line so that ordering and protocols are consistent.

A Whole Supporting Cast of Customizing Complexes
I recommend using the Spa complexes for the Spa Bar because there is something for everyone without over whelming them with too many choices. You have mix and match selections without offering them all at once. For example, I usually feature the Signature line based on the season, to generate a little sense of urgency and adventure.
