After much needed rain in California, our weather here is lovely. I hope yours is as well wherever you are across the country. The soft spring breezes conjure up images of the tropics for me, and I expect some of your spa and massage practice clients are experiencing the same thing. If a trip to a balmy tropical island isn't in the cards (or the budget) right now, you can help clients recreate some of experience with the products you use on their skin.

Why not go Mango this month? Our new Aromatherapy Massage Lotions all include Mango Butter, so your clients can choose from Bliss, Calming, Energy, Renewal or Serenity and count on enjoying the soothing, softening benefits of this highly emollient ingredient.

Mango Butter, which you’ll also find in our True Balance Massage Gel is a delightfully soft creamy butter extracted from the de-shelled kernels of the mango tree. It addition to its moisturizing properties, Mango Butter is full of antioxidants to nourish the skin; and it provides protection against the harmful UV rays of the sun. The Healing Benefits of Mango Butter provides an extensive list of the reasons to use it. In addition to softening the skin, Mango Butter fights off lines and wrinkles and helps heal sunburn and relieve itching skin.

Help your clients enjoy the benefits of Mango Butter and achieve a state of inner peace with the following Inner Peace spa menu treatment. It includes a gentle exfoliation and calming wrap that incorporates a blend of essential oils that will bring you to a place of restful relaxation. A massage with Calming Aromatherapy Massage Lotion completes the treatment and leaves skin soothed and hydrated.
