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.

Post on Facebook:

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? (if you sell cleaning products).

It is awards season again. There are the Oscars, Grammy Awards and now (drum roll, please) Lemongrass Spa’s Lime Light Awards! Why not take this opportunity to have an award winning party? Invite your who’s who list of friends and former hostesses, and make a night of it!


RedCarpetAwardsShoe.jpgHold your party on the night of the Oscars, and along with Best Picture predictions, allow your friends to vote on their favorite Lemongrass Spa products. Lay out a red (or lime green) table runner and place the nominated products out on the table all dressed up for the big night. Dress your Grapefruit Body Polish with a silk scarf, adorn your Body Crème in a puddle of pearls and arrange the eight Organic Lip Glosses peeking seductively out of a black stiletto. Print your ballots and allow your guests to put the nominees to the test. Award the winner of a randomly chosen category to a guest at the end of the night.

If you are a Lemongrass Consultant and are having a party with former hostesses, honor them as well. Present a “Lifetime Achievement” award to the guest who has hosted the most parties and a “Leading Lady” award to the one who had the most attendees. Give out an “Up and Coming” prize to a guest that commits to hosting a party in the near future.

It is so much fun to dress up for an event. Our busy lives do not often present many opportunities to dig our dresses and heels out of the back of the closet. In previous posts, I’ve given hints on how to glam it up on a dime, or should I say, a LIME. Have fun with it! You could even go the complete opposite and make a sweats and pony tail night of it. Pop some popcorn, soak some feet and watch (and critique) the fashion disasters in Hollywood.iStock_000033136146_Mediumlogo.jpg

Don’t forget to cast your ballot for your favorite Lemongrass Spa products in our first “Lime Light Awards.” Five winners will be chosen randomly to receive a prize package containing the winning product from each of the 5 categories.

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. We’re finding that social media plays an integral role in helping build a brand and in improving the perception of direct selling by helping to establish a personal connection through the use of an electronic medium. The social media venue is geared toward supporting our philosophy of sharing and caring – whether it’s sharing the lifestyle, the products or the income opportunity. Sparking change in the perceptions of consumers’ minds can happen with positive messaging, consultants who are trained to uphold ethical business practices and media attention focused on the positive impact of direct sellers. We tailor our content to touch on at least one of these areas each time we post

At Lemongrass Spa Products, it’s our goal to continually improve our product line by adding innovative, affordable and healthy products that capture the attention of our customers. Consumers of our products are generally well-educated when it comes to the ingredients we use and because of this we are continuing to find ways to anticipate their needs and meet their expectations regarding value and outstanding quality.

4 Steps to Setting & Keeping Goals

Cheers to starting fresh in 2015! We often mark the start of a new year resolving to make lifestyle improvements like eating healthier or exercising more, but many of us forget about business resolutions. Did you know that only ten percent of the population has specific, well-defined goals, but even then, seven out of the ten reach their goals only half the time. Interestingly the top three percent of the population achieved their goals 89 percent of the time and it’s because they have written down their goals.

We’ve heard the importance of goal setting, but how many of us write down our goals or have a clear plan to reach them? Creating goals helps keep us focused and motivated. Just like making New Year’s resolutions, setting business goals doesn’t need to be complicated. Here are four simple steps to setting and keeping goals for your business.

  1. Determine your long-term target. Do you want to earn money for a big-ticket purchase, a vacation next summer or  save for retirement? It doesn’t matter how big or small your long-term goal appears, it’s yours to identify. Periodically review your long-term goal to assess progress and modify as your circumstances change.

  2. Create the path to your long-term goal by setting short-term milestones. Make short-term goals precise and measureable: Each month I will earn ‘X’ amount of money or recruit ‘X’ number of people. Expressing goals positively (“I will” instead of “I won’t”) builds on self-confidence, a virtue of successful leaders and entrepreneurs.

  3. Get organized and establish a routine, including prioritizing tasks, keeping a to-do list and making time daily. Only have five minutes today? What can you do that leads to your goal? Maybe it’s following up with a potential customer or touching bases with a team member needing support.

2014 Year in Review

From opening a second distribution center in Florida to launching the revolutionary Prebiotic Body Wash to being named to the Top 100 Women Owned Companies, 2014 has been an incredible year for growth and opportunity. Here's our 2014 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. Roll-on deodorant in Fresh, Sport, Lavender and Unscented were introduced at the beginning of 2014. We launched a revolutionary Prebiotic Body Wash at our annual convention in Denver, Colorado in July. This organic, GMO-free product works on a molecular level by stimulating good microorganisms on the skin and promoting collagen production. Green Concealing Stick corrector, Organic Eye Makeup Remover, Stardust and Red Hot Lip Glosses, and Coral Blush were newcomers to the Sheer Minerals Makeup line. The Men’s Essentials organic skincare line was introduced featuring Shaving Crème, Body Wash, After Shave Lotion and Cleansing Gel, specially formulated for guys. Aromatherapy Mists featuring certified organic essential oil blends were introduced in five blends: Purifying Tea Tree, Lavender Relaxation, Citrus Refresher, Mint Revival and Balancing Act!

Community

We are incredibly grateful to the members of the community in Pine, Colorado who have supported us over the years. Five new employees were hired to help our expansion efforts, and we leased four additional suites in the business plaza. In July we began manufacturing and shipping from our second distribution center in Tarpon Springs, Florida with 10,000 square feet of office and warehouse space. Fourteen full-time team members are currently employed there. With both facilities fully operational, we realized a 2 to 4 day reduction in the turnaround time in shipping orders during the peak volumes: end-of-month and the holiday selling season.

Hello Natural Beauties,

It’s time to say goodbye to another year! But don’t say goodbye without leaving a little sparkle as you go!

The trends for this New Year’s Eve and holiday celebrations are all about glitz, glamour and sparkle with an “old Hollywood” feel. Whether you’re ringing in the New Year or dressing up for another holiday soiree, this season’s look is all about sequins, glitter and red carpet elegance.

As most ladies know, it can be expensive to achieve that Hollywood glamour look, especially for one special night. Lemongrass Spa Products has got you covered! Here are a few head-to-toe tips to keep you on the cutting edge without cutting into your bank account:

  • If you’re wearing a lower neckline, don’t neglect your décolleté! Apply a light dusting of White Diamond.
  • Looking for that perfect dress without breaking into next year’s savings? Take a look at thrift stores. You will be amazed at the selection and variety you can find. Many have been worn only once and some even still have the tags on! I have personally found designer cocktail dresses with tags still on for under $10. Look for rhinestones and sequins to BLING in the New Year!
  • Lemongrass Ladies do not need to spend tons of money on hosiery to make their legs look fabulous. We have our amazing, emollient-rich Tangerine and Amber Glow Bronzing Butters to add a little color and glow. And if you can handle an all-nighter in heels, nothing makes your calves look more toned and sculpted than a little bit of height.
  • If you are having a hard time finding the right color or style of shoe, again, try a thrift store. Even if you find the right style for the right price but the wrong color, buy them anyway! Take your dress with you to a local craft store, pick up some mod podge or fabric glue and match your dress to a glitter color (most craft stores have a huge array of colors). Lay out newspaper and pour out an ample amount of glitter. Apply a thin layer of glue all over the shoe with a sponge brush, let them dry slightly to where it’s tacky but not too wet and apply the glitter to your shoes. Let dry and… voila! Toto, we are not in Kansas anymore!

Last, but certainly not least…plan ahead and have a Cucumber Foot Care Kit on hand for January 1, 2015. Your feet will thank you after dancing the night or season away!

D_Evans_3.JPGEach month Lemongrass Spa Products spotlights a consultant and that consultant’s successes in both business and personal life. This month Deena Evans, Director from Colorado Springs, Colorado expresses her enthusiasm for giving back to those in need. Also a full-time nurse, Deena said, “when I was asked to tell you a bit about things I do in my community, I felt quite honored, as I'm passionate about so many things in my community and my world!”

Deena began her Lemongrass Spa Products journey over four years ago as a customer ordering facial care products and attending spa parties. “I was drawn to Lemongrass Spa by being invited to a party and needing face care products. I ordered them and loved them! I was invited to several parties and finally my husband told me I should become a consultant at least to get the discount, so I did! After doing my 3 parties, I realized people really loved the products and it was easy to sell...and the more I learned about chemicals in daily life from my up line, the more I loved Lemongrass Spa and felt I needed to share its fabulousness with everyone!” she said.

Her desire to help people through outreach sets Deena apart, and it starts in her own community. According to Deena, “people in my local community are hurting and need to be served and loved!” Deena volunteers at the Dream Centers of Colorado Springs Women's Clinic  each week using her medical training to perform pelvic ultrasounds on female patients who are uninsured or underinsured because she loves “treating people who are feeling 'less than' with utmost respect and love.”

Passionate about helping those who have been rescued from human trafficking, Deena also volunteers for Sak Saum, an organization based in Cambodia “that teaches a trade (sewing, jewelry making, etc.) to guys and girls that have been rescued from the trafficking industry and need a way to be free...from poverty and their past.” You can find Deena volunteering at events “where the [Sak Saum] products are sold and am able to share the story, which I love!”

Deena’s outreach extends beyond the confines of her community. She’s traveled to the island of La Gonave, Haiti several times where there is a mission D_Evans_4.JPGhospital and compound. Traveling with a small group of medical professionals, including the doctor with whom she’s worked for 18 years and his wife, Deena uses her medical skills to assist in surgery and in educating the Haitian nurses who work there. She states it is her pleasure and privilege to be given the opportunity to develop “great relationships and friendships with the nurses there, as well as the joy of helping serve the Haitian people medically.”

Peppermint evokes thoughts of sweet menthol aroma like candy canes at Christmas time. This fresh cool scent, distilled from the leaves of the plant species Mentha piperita, is one of the most widely used essential oils in aromatherapy and is described as energizing and refreshing. Although there is promising research with peppermint essential oil aromatherapy and relief from symptoms of indigestion, nausea and vomiting, evidence of relief from other ailments is primarily antidotal at this time.

Here are the top 5 therapeutic aromatherapy benefits of peppermint essential oil*:

Incorporate peppermint spa products into your skincare routine for potential therapeutic benefits or to  relish in the energizing bouquet. Whatever your reason for choosing peppermint infused products, Lemongrass Spa Products provides a variety to meet your needs, including the limited edition Candy Cane Collection, available through January 15, 2015.

Loving_Care_Set.jpg
Lemongrass Spa Products promotes a culture of serving  others and assists consultants throughout the year with charitable endeavors through the Lemongrass Spa Giving Back Fund. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness during October, Lemongrass Spa offered two corporate-sponsored initiatives, the Think Pink Blending Brush donation and Loving Care Gift Set giveaway, to help bring attention to the role of potentially-dangerous chemicals in personal care products.

Who doesn’t love a little splurge knowing a portion of one’s purchase goes to a noble cause? In October, Lemongrass Spa Products presented the Limited Edition Think Pink Blending Brush with a promise to donate $1 from the sale of each brush to the Breast Cancer Fund and National Breast Cancer Foundation. Providing safe and affordable skin care and mineral makeup is Lemongrass Spa’s primary objective, and the key to making smarter skincare choices is through education. Heidi Leist, Founder and CEO of Lemongrass Spa, chose to donate proceeds from the sale of the Think Pink Blending Brush to the Breast Cancer Fund and National Breast Cancer Foundation because these two organizations are passionate about educating the public about the dangers of toxic chemicals. In November, Heidi wrote each organization a check for $500 thanks to Lemongrass Spa’s loyal customers.

The Think Pink Blending Brushes were a hit! If you purchased a Blending Brush, please click here to discover how to contour or blend your minerals with this cruelty-free, eco-friendly makeup brush.

Customers often seek out products that Lemongrass Spa offers after they’ve witnessed the devastating effects of cancer treatment. These women and men look to limit exposure to ingredients suspected to contribute to the body’s cancer development. During the month of October, Lemongrass Spa sought to provide fifty women undergoing cancer treatment with a little relief by sending them a Loving Care Gift Set for dry and damaged skin. Suggested by Samantha Meyer, a consultant in Oklahoma, after witnessing “first-hand how incredibly hard these kinds of treatments are on the body, and how important the integrity of the skin can be when the immune system is so completely compromised," this trio of healing products includes Healing Elements Balm, Organic Nail Balm and a jar of Ultra Hydrating Body Crème.

Nominations for women, men and children poured in from friends and family wanting to acknowledge their loved ones’ strength and courage through their cancer journey. Each story exemplified a brave individual’s story and exceptional fight while highlighting the unending support from loved ones. Rebecca, nominating her friend Jeanette, exclaimed “She has served our country as a Marine and continues to serve as a Marine Spouse all while fighting cancer TWICE now!” Cherie, who nominated a grandmother in Michigan, said “Even though the treatments are tough at times, she is always glowing.”

holidaymakeup.jpg

Hello, Natural Beauties! It’s the holiday season and time for parties and gatherings of friends, family, co-workers and clients. This year, instead of doing your everyday makeup routine for that special occasion or spa party, I challenge you to step out of the box! It’s makeup…it washes off. Try something new! If you normally do a neutral eye, try a dramatic cat eye! If your lip color du jour is always Princess Pearl Organic Lipstick, I dare you to try Cocoa Berry! But choose one or the other: a dramatic eye and a neutral lip OR a dramatic lip and a neutral eye is the way to go. Pinterest is a veritable treasure trove of makeup instruction.

Find a look you like, send the family to a movie, get out your Sheer Minerals and PLAY! Or better yet, have a holiday Sheer Minerals open house. Have each guest as they arrive pull one of our 12 eye instruction cards out of a festive holiday gift box or stocking and then create that look on themselves! Take before and after pictures and have fun!

Here are some 2014 holiday trends to keep you on the edge of fashion when putting together your Holiday Party look:

  1. Long locks with braids or romantic spiral curls. Have short hair? You can purchase clip-in extensions at most accessory shops for a quick and fun transformation.
  2. Jewel tones. Take a look at a color wheel and choose a color on the opposite side of your eye color for a wow factor. Blue-eyed babes pop in bronzes and copper tones, green-eyed gals glow in reds and plums, and brown-eyed bombshells are brilliant in blues. This is a good rule of thumb when choosing clothing as well as Sheer Minerals eye shadows!
  3. Thick brows. Following the natural arch of your eyebrows and just outside of their natural boundaries, fill and shape brows with one of our Sheer Minerals eye shadows that matches, or is slightly darker than your natural brow color. Very lightly dampen your eyeliner brush so the color sets and stays put.
  4. Dramatic “false” eyelashes. Create this look easily with very light dusting of Sheer Minerals Matte Veil and an application of Organic Mascara in Matte Brown or Matte Black over top. More drama? Lightly dust a second time after the first has dried and repeat. Move your mascara wand back and forth as you apply to avoid clumping and “spider legs.”
  5. Bold full lip. If you are choosing to highlight your lips rather than your eyes, line your lips with one of our three beautiful Sheer Minerals Natural Lip Liners on the outermost edge of your lips, avoiding going outside of the edge too much. Apply your favorite shade of Organic Lipstick with the lip brush included in your Eight Piece Bamboo Brush Set. Cocoa Berry Organic Lipstick complements all skin tones. There is a reason it is one of our best-selling shades—it is stunning! For staying power, place a piece of tissue over the freshly applied color and dust over the tissue with Matte Veil using your Foundation Brush. If lipstick is not your personal preference, choose a Sheer Minerals Organic Lip Gloss shade that suits your look. The shine can add a fuller look to your lip. Plum Spice is a beautiful holiday shade. If your eyes are the focus, a neutral lip color like Bare Champagne topped with Stardust Organic Lip Gloss will allow your eyes to take center stage without denying your lips from being in the spotlight as well.

Whichever holiday look you choose, remember to pop your Sheer Minerals Mineral Setting Spray and your Essentials Brush Set in your purse for a quick color refresher and touch ups.

D Parkhurst small  Each month Lemongrass Spa spotlights a consultant and that consultant’s successes in both business and personal life. This month Donna Parkhurst, Premier Director from Cle Elum, Washington reveals how she built a prosperous team by authentically sharing her story at parties and on social media. 

  Donna joined Lemongrass Spa three years ago, and in that time has earned two spa destination trips, three Director promotions, a spot on the Dynamic Dozen List (Top 12 in Sales) three years in a row, a $1000 Director Bonus and thousands of dollars a month in income. “In October alone I brought on 12 new teammates to my team and as an organization (my whole downline) we added 32 amazing ladies. We are experiencing an explosive growth and the momentum is just starting!” said Donna. 

We asked Donna to share her secret to success in building her team of close-knit teammates. “Honestly, I don't ever push anyone to join my team. I do, however, offer the opportunity and when the time is right, people decide to come on board. I had someone join my team just last week who came to a party 2 years ago and wanted to join then. However, it wasn't quite the best time for her to join. She was invited to another party of mine last week and when she saw me, she caught me by surprise by exclaiming she was ready to join my team—two years later!”

When Donna was asked about what makes her leadership effective, she commented, “I feel that most in my organization have developed a special bond and we truly are in this together, whether working the business very minimally or full-time. I am sincerely hoping to expand my team to include men as well because I have found that many guys are the biggest supporters of Lemongrass!”

When people meet Donna they quickly learn about her positive outlook, the gratitude in her heart and her faith in God. “From earning the extra stream of income that enables me to supply my children with music, martial arts, and other instruction and the flexibility to travel more extensively, to the friendships I've created within Lemongrass (hostesses, other consultants, customers, etc.), I feel richly blessed.  I feel empowered by the leadership training I've received from our company and I'm honored to be able to share that with other people as they join my Lemongrass team.”

Think Pink Blending Brush: Great Contouring and a Great Cause

Have you gotten your limited edition Think Pink Blending Brush? For the month of October, Lemongrass is donating $1 from the sale of this brush to the Breast Cancer Fund and National Breast Cancer Foundation, an indulgence you can feel good about!  I love this brush!  It is lightweight, cruelty free and…well…PINK!!!

It is the perfect brush for buffing in your Sheer Minerals powders to warm them and create a flawless, well-blended look.

We get a lot of questions about contouring and highlighting: how to contour/highlight, what colors to use, and what effects can be achieved with contouring.  The Think Pink brush is the perfect tool for blending in light and shadow wherever you desire.

The best rule of thumb with contouring is that light will appear to bring things forward and dark will make them appear to recede.

Let’s begin with the light. I add a little Matte Veil to a small dot of Mineral Makeup Primer or face crèmeuntil it is a creamy consistency. The eye is naturally drawn to the light, so any feature you want to draw attention to or illuminate, you can bring it out with highlighting.
