Over-plucked, thinning, or misshapen eyebrows? Or do you just want to keep the great brows you have?

This month’s product feature is Brow Boost for brows and lashes! Check this out:  Laura Spencer dishes about Billion Dollar Brows’ Brow Boost with Rachael Ray on YouTube.

This deep conditioning treatment is designed to help strengthen and thicken brows and lashes in 30 days – naturally.

Brow Boost is dermatologist tested, prostaglandin free, and safe for all skin types. I love it’s affordable, reasonable price too – $20.

I was recently published in the national magazine Skin Deep by Associated Skincare Professionals! The piece is in the July issue on page 24. I wrote an article called: Succeed Big By Thinking Small “How to develop your market niche.” It’s about small business marketing and included examples of a few of my favorite niche companies. Billion Dollar Brows by Natalie and Bob Plain was one of the stories I spotlighted. They in turn, gave me a discount on product – which I extend to you, by way of Star Brows’ Rewards program. 🙂

Here are the Facts About Brow Boost. Check out the full line of Billion Dollar Brows products at Star Brows!

One of the benefits of being in the spa industry is that I deal with people everyday, who need to learn to relax – and I’m paid to help them do it.

But this means, I too need to be relaxed – after all, the teacher cannot teach what they themselves haven’t learned.

Lately I’ve been involved in a series of interactions which have caused some personal emotional stress. And it has me wondering – when people are angry, critical, or are just plain sharing their feelings, how do I process the information/interaction in a healthy way?

How do I Tame My Gremlins?

Of course, each situation is so different that there isn’t necessarily one surefire way of handling everything, so here are some ideas that help me cope and navigate my way through uncomfortable relational situations:

  • Be fully present in each situation – Breathe, slow down, and let myself feel whatever comes up.
  • Do more listening and less talking – While listening, let the other know they are heard and check in to be sure they feel understood.
  • Ask for permission to share how I feel – Not everyone is receptive to listening, and sharing when the other isn’t, can leave you in a worse place.
  • Be more curious than furious – Questions are helpful when communication stalls or becomes tense.
  • Be “in choice” rather than reactive  – If I start to feel uncomfortable in my body, it is a clue I need to listen – maybe the conversation needs to be rescheduled to a time when we’ve had a chance to calm down.
  • Don’t take it personally – Realize that each person has a very unique frame of reference/history that I have simply stumbled into with my words or actions. I’m not bad, it’s not all my fault, or all about me.
  • Be accountable – If you do or say something you regret later, or if the situation was unfinished, re-visit it if the other party is receptive at an appropriate time.
  • Check your heart – Intention is so important; I need to ask myself what will be the response that honors me as well as the other person.
  • Take care of yourself – If the situation doesn’t resolve well, or is drawn out over time, I can “ramp up” my self care. This is where a visit to the spa comes in!
  • Press on! – There is a verse in the Bible in the book of Philippians which guides me – it talks about pressing on toward the goal for the prize. What’s your prize, your high calling – happiness, joy, peace, harmony?

Many of you have asked what Raindrop Therapy is, and some of you have already experienced and loved it! Raindrop Therapy is an Enhancement to any Massage. Young Living Essential Oil’s founder Gary Young pioneered this treatment. The Star Brows version is a little different, but the two proprietary essential oil blends, Aroma Siez and Valor, are from Young Living.

I have been using essential oils at home, and have offered this service for many years. When I first started using the oils, my staff and I underwent a rapid detoxification period for a couple of weeks. As the oils penetrate the system of the practitioner through the hands during application, we had to limit the number of treatments we did each day because good essential oils are natural medicines and are very powerful – we were “overdosing.”

The origins of the Raindrop Therapy technique are based on Lakota Native healing. Powerful antibacterial, antiviral oils are dropped along the spine and a sweeping motion is used to feather the oils upwards along the spine in imitation of the Northern Lights, which are revered for their healing energy (and seen really well in my homeland – Minnesota).

This treatment combines the science of aromatherapy with the techniques of reflexology and massage. The applications of essential oils are said to bring structural and electrical (energetic) alignment. The technique is designed to bring balance to the body, and the oils used are chosen for their unique anti-spasmodic effects.

Muscles and soft tissue are gently eased without using force or excessive pressure. When you combine the life-giving force of the natural medicine in the essential oil and the intelligence of the human body, an amazing healing process begins.

Nine Essential Oils of Raindrop Therapy

Thyme – strong antiseptic, antimicrobial, revitalizing and energizing

Oregano – highly antimicrobial and antiviral

Wintergreen – antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antiseptic; also eases bone, muscle and joint discomfort

Cypress- anti-infectious, antispasmodic, increases circulation

Peppermint – soothes digestion, improves concentration, promotes mental clarity

Basil – powerful anti-spasmodic which soothes and relaxes muscles

Marjoram – soothes muscles, calms nerves, antimicrobial, antiseptic

Valor – balances electrical energies in the body, promotes balance and alignment

Aroma Siez – relaxes muscles, soothes aching or sore muscles

 

The Raindrop Massage Experience

Raindrop Massage treatment begins with the feet. Drops of essential oils are applied on the reflex points of both of your feet. It is common to feel a sensation of warmth after the essential oils are applied to your skin. By the end of the foot treatment, you will start to feel relaxed and rejuvenated. The therapeutic benefits of the essential oils will begin to take effect, and you will feel immersed in the pleasant fragrances of the essential oils.

Following the foot treatment, the Raindrop Massage technique is applied to the spine. The sensation of warmth, tingling, and relaxation becomes even more pronounced as the oils continue to be applied to the spine and massage begins.

The massage technique feels very gentle and involves easy strokes, taps or rolling movements that are designed to enhance absorption of the essential oils, and stimulate the reflex points. This promotes the release of toxins and supports healing and balance, and it also energizes the body.

A warm compress is applied to your back to complete your Raindrop Massage treatment. Any back pain or discomfort you were experiencing prior to the Raindrop Massage will dissipate during treatment, and you will feel refreshed and energized. One of the most unique benefits of the Raindrop Massage technique is the long-lasting effects it has on the body and mood. The general sense of well-being that results from each treatment lasts for several days.

See you at the new spa!
