One of the many great things about working at SPA+CLINIC is that it puts me in the way of discovering products, treatments and technologies that otherwise wouldn’t hit my radar.
In this instance I’m talking about innovations borne of great passion and belief, sometimes through adversity, and the desire to share them with the wider world so others can benefit.
But getting to the “wider world” is usually the stumbling block. It could be a matter of money, eg. to afford marketing and/or PR to generate awareness, or not having the “right” contacts to spread the word by mouth.
One such innovation that hit my radar recently – courtesy S+C publisher Kirien Withers via her friend Sue McKenna, the creator – is Happy Breast Balm, a mixture of natural ingredients including magnesium and iodine, hemp seed oil, coconut oil and essential oils, facilitated by dry skin brushing.
You/we and our clients spend eons and fortunes peeling, waxing, lasering, sugaring, moisturising, scrubbing etc etc etc various parts of the body in pursuit of enhanced health and beauty.
But how often are breasts considered in this quest? There is intense focus on issues such as breast examination and mammograms, and procedures like breast augmentation or reduction/lift.
How often is daily nurturing of yours or your clients’ breasts considered along with attending to, for instance, face neck and dec?
And so to Happy Breast Balm, the core of the Ultimate Breast Care routine:
“Quite simply, it’s designed to inspire and encourage women to get in touch with their breasts, to take the health of their breasts into their own hands,” says Sue.
“By spending a couple of minutes each day skin brushing and applying the balm, we can:
- Stimulate the lymphatic system to clear and detox the many lymph vessels within breast tissue.
- Massage breasts to improve blood flow and nourish them with the balm.
- Really get to know our breasts, recognising and becoming familiar with regular changes, and noticing if something is different.
“My interest in Ultimate Breast Care began a few years ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
“Thankfully, I am now in the best of health but in the process of my recovery I learnt a lot about breasts.
“I discovered that regular breast massage and skin brushing is good for blood flow and lymphatic system and helps us get to know our breasts well, so we’re more likely to notice when something has changed.
“I learnt about the importance of magnesium and Lugols iodine, the benefits of hemp seed oil and coconut oil, and the use of essential oils, especially citrus.
“Just as importantly, a recurring theme was the need for we women to embrace self-nurturing.
“Even the act of tenderly skin brushing and massaging our breasts each day can have a profound effect on our health – especially our breast health.
“I want women to discover and enjoy this lovingly created breast-friendly blend.”
A percentage of profits will be channelled into natural breast health care and maintenance education.
What a nice little addition to your retail offering for clients (and yourself!).
