For the first year and a half that we were open, we didn't have an esthetician to do facials and waxing. We were always having to turn people away, and we always had our eyes open for an esthetician, but we just hadn't found one.
In May of 2017, Erin Castle, LE, changed all of that. When she first signed on with us, she was tasked with finding a line of professional facial products to have here at Cloud 9 Massage & Spa, Your Float Haven. The trick was that it had to be nut oil free, paraben free, sulfate free, and light on the fragrance. For anyone that has looked for products with those stipulations, you know, it is harder than it sounds.
After much thought, research, and testing, she settled on Skin Script; it is a fruit-based line. Many of the staff here use the Skin Script products, whether it be just a serum, or the full line (cleanser, exfoliant, moisturizer, etc.). We like the products because they are so light, but effective. Erin knows all there is to know about the Skin Script line, and she can answer any questions about it.
Here at Cloud 9 Massage & Spa, Your Float Haven, we like to use products with just a few ingredients. Sacred Earth Botanicals uses no nut oils, no parabens, and really, no 'bad' stuff. That is why we chose to use their products for our massage cream, massage oil, lip balm, and healing oils (calendula, comfrey, arnica, and the massage oil blend). For many of our events we give away their samples because we love their products so much. We even use their massage oil for our infant massages and our infant massage classes.
As a dōTERRA essential oils wellness advocate, Tammy has been using the dōTERRA products in the spa and for herself for the past two years. She found her attitude was improved, anxiety lessened, and her immune system has become much stronger.
She also use essential oils on her two sons. She puts On Guard in their bathwater to help prevent them from developing a weak immune system. Her older son is in school and her youngest is in daycare, so they are both exposed to germs all day long, so she will do whatever she can to boost their immune system. The dōTERRA essentials oils are so pure that they never irritate her sensitive skin or her children's skin, like other oils have in the past. She uses the Deep Blue, rather than over the counter salves, on clients suffering from tight muscles. She found that their muscles respond quicker with the Deep Blue than with other muscle rubs. She loves what the company stands for; dōTERRA will not simply go to a country and harvest the plants for oil, but they create jobs in those countries where they weren't before.
It is kind of a funny story about how Shoyeido came to be at Cloud 9 Massage & Spa, Your Float Haven.
One day we received a call from a number without a local area code, Adalynn answered, because we often have people call with different area codes to book appointments, buy gift cards, etc.
The person on the other end of the call asked if we sold incense and at the time we didn't. He explained that they are all natural, and, of course, that peaked our interest. The man asked if he could send us a free sample; a few days later we received the best incense we have ever used.
We are continually adding inventory, kits, holder, cones, loose leafs, and more.
