Feelin' the need for luxury?

Interested in looking and feeling better about yourself? Concerned about using cruelty free products? Want to feel confident the brand you use is committed to protecting the environment?
Then SwissJust (pronounced yoost) may be just what you've been looking for.
Several Bandera County entrepreneurs sell Just products to their happy customers, including Nina Restivo of Healing Hands Spa.
"When I learned about the organic products of this company, I started using them with my customers," said Restivo. "Both myself and my customers were very pleased."
Customers can get discounted products by hosting spa parties with their friends.
"We can do a facial spa, a foot spa, or just anything the hostess wants," said Restivo.
The company also offers opportunities to entrepreneurs to develop professionally and personally by owning their own business. "You can join the SwissJust family part-time, full-time or big time," said another Just businesswoman.
SwissJust has been operating in Europe for over 80 years. They use natural oils and materials for aromatherapy and for a wide variety of health and beauty products.
Customers can purchase 100 percent pure essential oils, or products infused with the oils, to promote their own emotional and physical well-being, as well as to improve the health and appearance of the skin.
"The essential oils smell good and do good things for your body," said Restivo. Among SwissJust's most popular essential oils are 31 Herbal Oil, that will restore "the body's natural energy... eases tensions that cause headaches and muscle pain."
Another favorite is Anti-Stress Oil, which is a blend of 15 natural oils to "promote relaxation and well-being." There is also the amazing Guduchi Oil, which restores energy levels more efficiently than a cup of coffee.
Since we humans breathe about 17,000 times per day, aromatherapy can influence both the mind and emotions, "restoring inner harmony and balance."
SwissJust offers 10 essential oils, including lavender, orange, eucalyptus and tea tree, as well as almond carrier oil. Restivo provides a handy brochure that gives the customer a quick reference for using the various oils. It's easy to mix and match your oils as needed.
Other products include lotions and creams, body scrubs, bath essences, shampoos and bath salts, all infused with healthy natural organic ingredients.
"I have a lot of pain from arthritis," said one customer, "and the Juniper Cream gives me almost instant relief with its warming effect. Combined with the 31 Oil, it really does the job on my joints."
To take care of your face, SwissJust has exfoliating cream, an intensive renewal mask, generating serum, hydro gel, eye contour cream and much more.
All SwissJust products may be purchased individually, in handy "travel packs," or full-size theme sets.
Host your own SwissJust Herbal Spa with a few good friends and earn points for free and half-priced products.
