Essential Oils – June Product Feature

RewardsThis month’s Product Feature lineup is Tu’el Botanical Boosters. As anyone who has had a service at Star Brows knows, we use essential oils in every single service we do! They are truly essential to the spa experience, and I believe irreplaceable in a personal-care routine. xo Linda

An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aromatic compounds from plants. My favorite application is for the facial skin, and there is one for every skin type and condition.

The oils have many benefits, and each oil has different attributes. Our collection is targeted to skin types, but they are also relaxing, detoxifying, sleep-inducing, and generally tonic for the entire body. Once applied to the facial skin, they actually enter the bloodstream and go to work throughout the body.

The Tu’el lineup of essential oil synergy blends for each skin type are explained in detail heres:

Anti Aging Botanical Booster

Designed for mature skin that has lost its vitality, this exclusive essential oil blend will leave you with a more youthful appearance. Avocado and vetiver oils are deeply hydrating and rejuvenating. Carrot seed combats the appearance of wrinkles and lines, while brightening dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Cypress and rosewood target your pores and skin cells in order to clarify, tone and regenerate tissue for younger looking skin. Essential moisture will be restored, elasticity improved and collagen production boosted.

Reactive Skin Botanical Booster

Designed for reactive and sensitive skin, this formula’s essential oil blend will reduce inflammation, calm, regenerate and improve the overall appearance of your complexion. The efficacious but gentle combination of roman chamomile, lavender and frankincense soothes, balances, conditions and heals. Deliver rejuvenating, toning and conditioning natural botanicals with this deeply replenishing and easy to absorb booster.

Acne Skin Botanical Booster

Designed for acne prone skin, this exclusive essential oil blend heals breakouts, reduces scarring, evens skin tone, clears pore congestion and prevents future blemishes. Tighten pores, refine skin’s texture and mitigate oil production with naturally potent astringents clary sage and lemon oil. Tea tree oil eliminates acne causing bacteria and toxins while soothing inflammation and riding your complexion of pink. Spike lavender and palma rosa keep misbehaving skin in check by balancing, purifying and supporting cell rejuvenation.

Dry Skin Botanical Booster

Designed for dry skin that has lost its youthful suppleness, this formula’s essential oil blend will restore hydration and leave your skin smoother, softer and revitalized. Rosemary, geranium and bergamot mint work together to calm, condition and stimulate your skin’s micro-circulation in order to protect and treat dry skin in the short and long term. The antioxidant complex of lavender, grape seed and rose oils have antibacterial and antiseptic properties to keep skin cleansed, while delivering high doses of anti-aging power.

Combo/Oily Botanical Booster

Designed for combination or oily skin, this formula’s essential oil blend will rein in excess oil production, minimize the appearance of pores and balance out-of-whack complexions. Bergamot, ylang ylang and palma rosa oils are the core of this booster’s balancing power and deliver hydration and control where needed. The synergistic combination of conditioning German chamomile and pore refining cypress meets all of your skin’s needs. Lemon grass rounds out our proprietary formula with potent anti-inflammatory properties that leave your skin refreshed, soothed and toned.

The New Spa in Grover Beach Open For Mother’s Day

I started my dream business, Star Brows, in Arroyo Grande California four years ago, specializing in a unique “brow graphing” technique, which I developed at my Minnesota spa. Due to the success and popularity of that technique, I needed to expand, and now have a new home! Everything you know and love about Star Brows will stay the same, but better – I hope you’ll agree!

On April 15th I moved my eyebrow couture, skincare, massage, and body waxing spa to 1065 West Grand Avenue to Grover Beach (Shangri-La!) and have created a luxurious spa setting that I know you will love.

Originally, I really wanted to stay in AG, but then I found this amazing space with great exposure and plenty of room to grow. It’s across from Miners in Grover Beach. This location really fits my “brand.” You will truly feel like the star you are when you’re there. I wanted to create a more spa-like atmosphere so you could enjoy the full array of Star Brows services.

I’ve added two private treatment rooms with sound-proof walls and solid core doors :), a casual and open feeling makeup and waxing lounge, and an serene waiting area – and we’re closer to the beach! Who could ask for more? I’ll be posting pictures soon.

But, like any dream, there have been (and are) hurdles to overcome. In the end, though, it’s all worth it. I hope this encourages you to follow your dreams too. Turning dreams into reality takes guts, a lot of hard work, optimism, help from those who support you (thank you all!), and a generous pinch of the miraculous!

Next Sunday is Mother’s Day, and I am poised to help you celebrate. Hmmm, what would you really like? I come from a background of providing fabulous spa experiences, and now that I have the space and the environment for it, I’d like treat you.

Here is a sneak peek of a spa experience created to celebrate mom’s day, or “just because” – at the new location – offered for a limited time:

Spa Facial and Massage Treatment

Arrive a couple of minutes early so you can get settled and relax for a few minutes in the quiet environment of the new spa, and plan on staying for about an hour and a half.

When you enter the treatment room you will feel the warm air provided by state-of-the-art radiant heat. You’ll smell calming essential oils and be enveloped by the soft candlelight.

As you climb under crisp, clean, warmed sheets your body’s curves will be cradled by special contoured cushions.

Detoxifying and de-stressing drops of essential oils will be applied along your spine (Raindrop Therapy), to coax your body into a state of bliss and calm, followed by a back massage given at just the right pressure for you. When the knots are eased, you turn over and the Star Massage begins with Tu’el’s Cleansing Oils and Herbalizers chosen for your skin type. Puffiness, sinus pressure, jaw tension and all signs of stress dissipate from your face, neck and should – mmm, who knew it could feel this good?

Now the facial begins with warmed towels, gentle steam, and special masks and scrubs designed to alleviate your skin’s concerns.

And don’t forget those hard working hands and feet. They will be meticulously worked out, every finger and every toe rubbed until they are eased. Your feet will be wrapped in warm towel-like booties and a little Craniosacral work will be done to balance your body’s rhythms.

Later, plan on relaxing and drinking plenty of water with slices of organic lemons to complete a perfect experience.

Who knew Star Brows was about more than eyebrow couture? Now’s your chance to see! Limited spaces are available for this special offer, so call now – 805-722-8222  – and mention the Mother’s Day Spa Special. It’s not on the menu and is specially priced at $99. It expires on May 12th, but you can get a Gift Certificate for the service and use it anytime!

See you at the new spa!

Essential Oil Synergy Blends

I have been using essential oils at home as medicine since I had my first baby (30 years ago)!

So, when I started my first skincare business, I fell in love with Eva’s Esthetics Essential Oil Blends and the company, many of whose products are plant-based.

As anyone who has had a service with me knows, I use essential oils in every single service I do.

Until now however, these proprietary blends have only been available to you by special order. I’m proud to announce that they are now in the product line-up at Star Brows!

What is an essential oil?

Essential Oils are made primarily of terpenoid compounds, which are volatile and can be readily absorbed through penetration, inhalation, and skin permeation. These oils are stored in the outer part of the plant so when you “crack” the skin of an orange the smell is released, or when you break an aloe plant leaf the serum oozes. Essential Oils are volatile, evaporating when exposed to air.

Essential Oils help to protect the skin barrier function and also retain moisture, regulate capillaries, eliminate waste matter and dead cells, promote regeneration, and tone skin cells.

Eva’s Esthetics Synergy Blends complement each skin type within each line and are formulated to achieve a specific therapeutic result. The retail size is 15% pure essential oil. ½ oz.

Chamomile Essential Oil: For dry, small-pored skin that is “product sensitive”.

What’s in it? Lavender, Rose Geranium, Roman Chamomile, Copal, Frankincense, Helichrysum, Grape Seed Oil

Regenerative Essential Oil: For mature skin of any type or pore size.

What’s in it? Cypress, Rosewood, Carrot Seed, Marjoram, Vetiver, Lavender, Apricot, and Avocado Oil

The results you’ll get from using these oils at home will amaze you, and I know you will love them as much as I do.
