Chamomile to relieve nervous tension. Eucalyptus and basil to combat colds. Lavender to soothe skin. Herbs have moved out of our gardens and kitchens and into other areas of our lives, particularly in health-related industries, including the spa and esthetics industry. Always at the forefront of industry trends, Les Nouvelles Esthétiques magazine has dedicated its August issue to the topic of herbs.
LNEs herb issue covers a range of issues dealing with herbal use in the spa and esthetics industry, which has witnessed a surge in the use of herbs as ingredients in topical treatments, as well as a growing number of spa guests who use herbal supplements in their diets.
Among the varied article features and topics in this special theme issue, readers will find the following stories and much more:
In Cool Running, Diana Howard, Ph.D., offers a discussion of anti-inflammatory herbs
Herbal Rx by Irene Heiney covers the findings of 19th-century priest Sebastian Kneipp, who preached the therapeutic benefits of herbs and plants
Readers will find an overview of the basic tenets for using herbal supplements in Natural Drugs

Our primary goal at LNE has always been to educate our readers and to impart the latest trends and issues facing the industry, says Monica Schuloff Smith, LNE editor in chief.
With the rising trend of herbal use in spa and skin care treatments, it is essential that spa professionals understand the issues surrounding the use of herbs and supplements so that they can share their knowledge with their clients, Smith adds.
The American edition of Les Nouvelles Esthétiques has been in circulation since 1985 and is the only monthly publication in the industry devoted exclusively to skin care and spa professionals. The focus of the magazines articles is to educate skin care and spa professionals in all aspects of the beauty industry.
Les Nouvelles Esthétiques was founded more than 50 years ago in Paris, France. With a global network of 19 publications and 19 trade shows worldwide, the company remains the largest international source for esthetics and spa professionals.
