How to Make Mom Feel Like a Million Bucks

Every woman wants to feel cherished, loved and appreciated. According to a survey done by the Daily Mail with 2,000 women in 2013, receiving a compliment from a friend or spouse was the biggest confidence booster, followed by having perfect hair and looking good in pictures.

The study revealed that having a good night's sleep, a cuddle, being told "I love you" and a smile from a stranger were also guaranteed to make a woman feel happy about herself.

It also found that four out of ten women get an immediate confidence boost if they look good in a photo. Another 40 percent say they feel great after getting a night of good sleep.

While 60 percent of women follow a strict beauty regime to ensure they leave the house feeling confident, 38 percent only need a cuddle from a child, partner, relative or friend to feel loved for the rest of the day.

Women also get an esteem boost when others ask them where they bought something they are wearing, such as a sweater or purse. Another thing women love is when they’re asked who their hairdresser is or what brand of makeup they use!

Year in Review 2016

2016 was brimming with hot new products, savvy new events, social media parties and more followers than ever. Take a road trip down memory lane as we celebrate our 2016 Year In Review!

Products

You’ll find products most admired by customers in the Top 20 Products of the Year photo, featured above. Topping the list again this year are the Healing Elements Balms, soap bars including Tea Tree, Oatmeal Milk & Honey, Lavender Goat's Milk and Frosted Cranberry; BB Crème makeup and loose mineral Foundation and Matte Black Organic Mascara; plus a variety of body care and skincare products people use everyday.

The introduction of innovative new products is one of the key elements in engaging our customers and creating excitement for our sales consultants. In the spring, we released refreshing new Strawberry Lemonade and it was a huge hit with a wide variety of people of all ages. As part of our commitment in offering safer alternatives to families we unveiled a brand-new Deodorant Spray and Paste Deodorant utilizing certified organic essential oils, baking soda and odor-fighting ingredients. New Prebiotic Hand Wash was introduced to help provide a safe solution to harsh sanitizers and dish soap at the kitchen sink.

In the fall our ‘Products with a Purpose’ initiative propelled sales upward with the popularity of Soothing and Recovery Balms. These purposeful balms infused with botanicals and essential oil blends help reduce common muscle soreness, body pain and fatigue with all-natural ingredients. For the men, we added a popular Beard Oil that doubles as a hair serum for the ladies and for nursing moms, we introduced Organic Nursing Balm for healing delicate skin. To complement the addition of a few new essential oils we added a chic new Welcome Home Diffuser for large living areas and Wall Diffuser for small spaces like hallways and restrooms. We launched a revolutionary Prebiotic 3-in-1 Wash in both Unscented or Men’s Essentials scent. This organic, GMO-free product works on a molecular level by stimulating good microorganisms on the skin and promoting collagen production. It serves as a shampoo, body wash and facial wash in the shower. An exotic new floral scent, Midnight Orchid, was introduced and quickly became a customer favorite among women. For the holiday season we introduced new Snickerdoodle products and brought back perennial picks: Candy Cane and Frosted Cranberry.

With Love From Lemongrass Spa

We salute all of you who are kicking cancer to the curb! Your bravery inspires us beyond what words can describe. This month we received the most heartwarming, awe-inspiring stories of courageous people all over the country who are undergoing a variety of treatments.

When you or someone you love is going through cancer treatment there are so many emotional and physical changes that go along with it. During the month of October we asked our sales consultants to nominate men, women and children in their communities undergoing cancer treatment who could benefit from the healing products in our Loving Care Gift Set. The set includes three of our most hydrating items: Healing Elements, Nail Balm and Ultra Hydrating Body Crème. Over 700 sets were gifted throughout the month and we thought you’d adore hearing some of their astonishing stories.

“So it seems I may have been bragging on feeling so well a little early. I've felt really tired and awful for the past two days and today my hair literally came out in handfuls! So I have an emergency appointment with Kelly and her clippers at 2:30 tomorrow! I'm not risking being patchy! I've been pretty bummed out about it all day but there's no getting around it. It's not as if I didn't know it was going to happen and besides buzz cuts are cool as someone told me today - I certainly hope so!! Anyway I'll post pictures tomorrow after I figure out what the heck to do with a bald head!

On a far more positive note I got a really nice gift set in the mail from Lemongrass Spa because it's breast cancer awareness month. Thank you Sarah B-Wellpup for thinking of me. It's really cheered me up and I'm looking forward to using it all!!”

With Love...A Survivor's Story

In honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Lemongrass Spa is encouraging those bravely fighting any type of cancer to share their stories with us, and in return we will gift them one of our Loving Care Sets. Read one survivor’s inspiring journey to a fresh, clean & natural lifestyle.

HeatherMiller.jpgHello! My name is Heather Miller, Senior Director with Lemongrass Spa Products. I would like to share a little bit about my journey with Lemongrass Spa. In August of 2014, a friend of mine contacted me to share that she had just joined natural skin care company and wanted to send me a catalog and samples to try. I knew that if she loved them, they must be something special. My friend is a breast cancer survivor and meticulous about what goes on and in her body. When the products arrived, I was amazed at the purity of the ingredients used in these products. And the best part was how very well the products worked!  

I too am a breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of 2011. At the time, my husband was deployed with the Marine Corps. I underwent 16 rounds of chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, and 33 rounds of radiation treatments at the age of 37. My breast cancer was NOT genetic, I did not carry the BRCA gene and there was no history of breast cancer in my family. My cancer was labeled “Environmental”, in fact I was part of a clinical study and parabens were found in my breast tumor. That was a huge wakeup call for me!

My family went on a mission to go clean and green with our diet, cleaning products, and with our skin care. The diet and cleaning products were pretty easy to change over. However, I would spend hours researching skin care products only to end up frustrated and angry at what I found. So many products were labeled “hypo-allergic, organic, and natural” but when I would read the ingredients list, those products still contained harsh and even toxic chemicals.

I even tried making my own lotions and skincare products at home, and failed pretty miserably. I resorted to using with coconut oil, but my body still needed something else, I just could not seem to figure out what it was. So when the Lemongrass Spa products arrived from my friend, Lenora, the timing could not have been any better. The eczema on my back went away in 3 days. My skin was finally soft, vibrant, and HAPPY. I was hooked and I decided to join this amazing company without even attending a Spa Party, I was that impressed! I wanted to share these products with my family!

Products with a Purpose

Healing Elements is our number one selling product due to its multitude of uses. We’ve now expanded our line of products with a purpose with two new items: Recovery Balm and Soothing Balm! These new balms are perfect for a massage, which has been shown to improve overall wellbeing by easing physical and mental tension. Both balms feature a blend of apricot kernel oil, olive oil and beeswax to melt into the skin.

Put a spring back in your step with Recovery Balm! Known for their relieving and comforting properties, the certified organic blend of clove, arnica, cardamom and cinnamon essential oils warm up as the balm is gently worked into skin. Target sore muscles, stiff joints and tension caused by sports injuries. Don’t let strains and sprains keep you from staying active. Studies have shown regular massage can help ease the stiffness and pain associated with arthritis.

Recovery Balm is recommended for ages 10 and up due to the small percentage of cinnamon and clove essential oils.

Soothing Balm features peppermint and menthol known for their refreshing and uplifting properties. Massage Soothing Balm onto your chest and upper extremities to quickly alleviate congested nasal passages. Sinus sufferers will find relief from utilizing this on pulse points or a tiny bit under the nose. Derived from the herbs peppermint, eucalyptus and pennyroyal, organic menthol can also aid in reducing itching and inflammation as its absorbed through the skin.

Soothing Balm is recommended for ages 2 and up due to the menthol and peppermint essential oils.

Fall in Love with Lemongrass Spa

Soak in the feeling of Fresh, Clean & Natural! From the moment you see the welcoming spa bathtub on the front cover of our fall/winter catalog, you’ll want to take in the sights and smells of this season’s new product offerings. We invite you to discover our natural collection of new spa products, purposeful balms, essential oil diffusers, holiday favorites and men’s items.

Discover the ultimate indulgence when you experience new Midnight Orchid. A fresh, feminine blend of orchid and Midnight_Orchid_graphic_blog.jpgsweet pear with sandalwood and soft amber is the tropical inspired floral collection you've been waiting for. This essence will linger for hours after applying and is unlike anything Lemongrass Spa has offered before! We can’t wait for you to try this exotic collection and transform your entire bathroom with our Bath Crystals, Body Spritz, Prebiotic Body Wash, Body Polish, Hand & Body Lotion and the Midnight Orchid Collection in an organza bag. 

As a kid, some of my fondest memories were baking Snickerdoodle and sugar cookies during cold winter afternoons with my mom and sister. Bring your family back to the kitchen with our new Snickerdoodle collection. This delicious fragrance will remind you of freshly baked cookies served warm, right out of the oven. Vanilla-lovers will appreciate this warm twist on an old favorite, with the sweet blend of vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. We’ve even make the sugary Body Polish look like the cookie when you open the jar with the addition of apricot seed powder, to mimic sprinkled cinnamon and provide added exfoliation benefits. Offered in Body Polish, Body Icing and Room Spray, the Gift Set is Snickerdoodle_500_x_500.jpgaffordably priced at $39. For stocking stuffers, hostess gifts and birthday surprises, you’ll want to check out the pocket-sized Body Polish and Icing Duo.

Everyone is looking for ways to cut down on expenses and spend less time on self-care, especially men. We’ve developed a brand-new concept with our Prebiotic 3-In-1 Wash, by combining shampoo, shave gel and body wash into one convenient pump bottle. Offered in two versions, Men’s Essentials and Unscented, your entire family might enjoy trying this time-saving, budget-friendly miracle in a bottle.

With the popularity of beards sweeping the male population, we’re offering an organic Beard Oil that smoothens, nourishes and tames runaway beards. The handcrafted formula also conditions facial hair and skin, while reducing itchiness or irritations associated with hair growth. To use, after showering, apply 1 to 2 drops of oil to beard while it is damp. Use a brush to help the oil penetrate into the hair. In minutes you’ll have a more manageable, soft beard.

There are people that you are friends with that want to book parties with you RIGHT NOW! Then, why are they not on your calendar? You just haven’t created a great enough need for your product, in their opinion.

Now… please don’t go and start spamming everyone on Facebook with ad after ad or desperate begging on your timeline or business page.

Instead of this unproductive vomiting of information and harassment, come from a place of service and post before and afters if that works you’re your product line, or post – “What’s your biggest “skin” challenge?” (if you sell skincare) or “What’s your biggest “meal time” challenge?” (if you sell food items or items for meal prep), “What’s your biggest challenge with accessorizing your wardrobe?” (if you sell jewelry), or “What’s your biggest “cleaning” challenge?

Don’t Sweat It…We’ve Got You Covered!

I don’t know about you, but having underarm odor is one of the most embarrassing things for a girl or a guy. Having to avoid someone with bad body odor is hard to cover up. As a teenager or as an adult, this awkward situation is something that can be avoided with the right combination of products.

Did you know that sweat is actually odorless inside the body?

When perspiration is exposed to the atmosphere chemical changes happen. Bacteria on the surface processes the perspiration, causing odor. On average people have 3 to 4 million sweat glands! It’s no wonder Americans are obsessed with great smelling sprays, perfumes, deodorants and antiperspirants!

There are two sweat glands, the eccrine and apocrine. Things like exercise, stress, eating spicy food, hormones, diseases, taking strong medication, running a fever, gastro problems and prolonged infections cause these glands to work overtime to cool off our bodies.

To reduce odor, bacteria on the skin should either be eliminated or out run by good bacteria to create a friendly, less odiferous environment. Good hygiene can go a long way in reducing odor as well as avoiding caffeine, spicy foods and even red meat.

2015 Year in Review

From revealing a brand new magazine-style catalog, to launching a line of certified organic essential oils, to being named to the Top 100 Women Owned Companies for the second time, 2015 has been an incredible year for growth and opportunity. Here's our 2015 year in review.

Products

The introduction of innovative new products is one of the key elements in engaging our customers and creating excitement for our sales consultants. Sheer Minerals BB Crème (Beauty Balm) was a huge hit with our customers and consultants. This lightweight tinted moisturizer was offered in five shades to provide a ‘liquid foundation’ to those who prefer it. Inspired by the Pantone Color of the Year, Merlot Organic Crème Lipstick and Marsala Blush quickly became favorites among makeup wearers. An essential oil collection, complete with Fractionated Coconut Oil and rollerball vials for mixing blends, was introduced in the summer. Tea Tree, Lemon, Lavender, Peppermint single oils plus Immune Boost, Balancing Act and Mint Revival blends were offered to customers, in addition to many essential oil products we’ve been selling for years. We launched a revolutionary Prebiotic Facial Wash and Facial Mist at our annual convention in July. In addition to the popular Prebiotic Body Wash, this organic, GMO-free product works on a molecular level by stimulating good microorganisms on the skin and promoting collagen production. Prebiotic Foaming Liquid Soap was introduced in four varieties including Mandarin Orange, Candy Cane, Tea Tree with Citrus and Unscented.

Top Leaders Attend Leading the Way Retreat

Twenty-two women from Lemongrass Spa Products participated in an empowering weekend with Belinda Ellsworth and her Step Into Success Team at the Leading the Way Leadership Retreat in Chicago, Illinois last month. At the cornerstone of the event was the celebration of the release of Belinda’s Direct Selling for Dummies, Amazon’s #1 Bestselling Book in several business categories. This exceptional how-to book helps the reader navigate the direct sales industry in pursuit of success, setting goals, managing their time wisely and harnessing the power of social media to book, sell and recruit. Each attendee received an autographed copy of this business-building manual.

DirectSellingDummiesCollage.jpg

Belinda showcased some of the most impactful social media speakers in today’s direct selling arena, including Lydia Martin and Lyndsay Tompkins. Expert storyteller, comedian and author, Kelly Swanson had the entire audience rolling out of their seats with laughter as she helped us see through our obstacles and make fun of our shortcomings. Linda Ellis inspired us to live each minute as if it were our last. Author of the world-renowned book, The Dash, Ellis shared first hand how th

is book has touched the hearts of millions.

Lemongrass Spa’s Executive Director, Tara LaMagna, was asked to present her successful steps in exceptional team engagement to the direct sales leaders attending the event. Tara’s story of how she built a team of 300 consultants in just over two years had leaders from dozens of direct selling companies feverishly taking notes. Tara’s style of utilizing Facebook groups to motivate and inspire her team, Facebook parties to increase her sales and systems for attracting new recruits to her team have been instrumental in her success. Tara traveled to the Dominican Republic in June 2015 as one of the Spa Destination Trip earners and was named to the Dynamic Dozen (Top in Sales) at the Annual Convention.

Marketing Your Direct Selling Business with Instagram

Last year my teenage daughter asked if she could get an Instagram account. This was an eye-opening and educational experience for our family as we learned a whole new way to communicate on social media with our kids and their friends. As teens moved away from Facebook and over to Instagram in large numbers last year, parents have another social media environment to monitor, with some added benefits if you’re open minded about learning a slightly different marketing approach. Instagram isn’t just for teens. Almost 80% of Instagram users are between 13-49, and 68% of the users are female. 

After sitting down with my daughter for about fifteen minutes I was educated on setting up my profile, posting pictures and getting creative with #hashtags. From a teen perspective there are cool things to post on Instagram and very uncool things and now that we were following each other the last thing I wanted to do is appear as a stalker parent.   There were some abbreviations I needed to Google in order to understand what she and her friends were talking about: #goals, ttyl, TBT, OOTD, bae, cray, LYT and WTH. Now that I had the basics down I was off and running.

Because Instagram is picture and video driven (you can’t make a post without one) the visual stimulation when you scroll through the feed can become rather addictive. I found myself following gluten-free chefs, beach yoga instructors, natural skincare crafters, coffee drinkers, motivational speakers and crossfit athletes. Because IG sorts photos by hashtags, when you go to explore new people you’ll immediately gravitate toward people with common interests.

Creating Connections

Posting comments on Instagram is much like Facebook and you can easily engage with new people simply but making a positive comment on their photo. You can private message your friend on Instagram, too, which also requires attaching a photo to the initial message. Another way to engage with your friends is to add their IG name, for example @abc123, as a comment to a post, or tag them in a post. The next time your friend goes to their Instagram account they will see the post you intended for them to see. It goes without saying, if someone follows you, follow them back, unless of course you have reasons not to. Since about 70% of Instagram users check their feed at least once a day, post pictures regularly to keep followers engaged and interested. Follow and engage with people who have similar interests as you. For example, if you see a user who often posts about a healthy lifestyle and natural skin care, you may want to follow them.

Revolutionary Prebiotic Body Wash

The skin is far and away the largest organ of the human body. What you might not realize about your skin is that it is literally a microbiologic zoo, housing hundreds of different bacteria, many very beneficial and a few which can ruin your appearance or have destructive health consequences.

If you are interested in healthy skin, you must understand that the friendly bacteria living on your skin are not disease causing. They are actually an integral part of you. The truth is that we are a mix of human cells and microorganisms, i.e. friendly bacteria that lives on our skin and provides important health promoting functions.

Unfortunately, living among the large populations of friendly bacteria, there can also be quite diverse and vibrant colonies of unhealthy bacteria. These unhealthy bacteria are different genetically from the friendly bacteria, and the relative strength of the various friendly versus unfriendly bacteria colonies determines the health and appearance of our skin.

Enter Lemongrass Spa Products’ Prebiotic Body Wash, which is an alkaloid-based biostimulant that feeds a wide variety of friendly microorganisms on the skin. Mark Hesseling, Product Development Manager at Lemongrass Spa Products, created a similar product years ago when he was in the environmental sciences industry. He learned how to manipulate bacteria to make it resilient to chemicals. Some of his coworkers used his concoction on their skin and started noticing incredible healing from dryness and skin issues.

Mark said, “This 100% natural, organic, ‘friendly bacteria’ food source causes healthy bacteria to go into a feeding frenzy, resulting in much higher activity levels of normal, friendly bacteria. Over a very short period of time, the healthy bacteria will completely overwhelm any harmful bacteria, virtually eliminating skin disorders of many types.”

The Direct Sales Industry – 2015 Outlook

*Lemongrass Spa Products’ Founder & CEO, Heidi Leist, shared her industry insights alongside four Direct Selling executives in the Direct Selling Association’s annual "Industry Executives Discuss Challenges, Opportunities Ahead" piece in the DSA's January 22, 2015 InTouch newsletter.

The direct selling industry has experienced a steady increase in retail sales since 2009, with a 5.9% increase between 2011 and 2012 (most recent statistical year available) according to the Direct Selling Association (DSA). In the U.S., an estimated 15.9 million people are involved in direct sales, and approximately 80% of them women. Lemongrass Spa Products is no exception boasting a 65% percent increase in sales force in 2014. Click here to read Lemongrass Spa Products’ 2014 year in review. The industry growth trend continues as consumers move toward buying from small and local retailers, direct selling companies offer a variety of quality products, and people look for flexible income avenues.

I believe the direct selling industry will continue to experience growth in 2015 because of key economic indicators, a continuing surge in internet purchases, social media and the increasingly popular selling model we offer. Generation Xers and Millennials have found the extra income they can earn by having a direct selling business satisfies their need to supplement their income. Competition for well-paying jobs is at an all-time high and college graduates are discovering that the direct selling industry offers an entrepreneurial path to success. Baby boomers find that our business model is easily adaptable into their lifestyles, it can offset healthcare expenses and the social connections are invaluable to them.

Many direct selling companies have done an effective job of reforming the image of today’s direct seller from one who is pushy, old-fashioned and dishonest to one who is trendy, successful, educated and legitimate.
