New soap packaging

we have finally come up with a retail packaging for the soap bars that we are happy with. Each bar is shrink wrapped with the ends left open for smelling.

This gives us the room to display five types of soap per shelf where, before, only three baskets would fit.

Of course, he’s also working out in our home studio where he takes […]

Cheap essential oils and poor service

A customer came into our Nashville store the other day to buy essential oils of lavender, rosemary, and tea tree. But when she saw the price of our lavender (it is only $11.00) she said, “oh, it was cheaper at X”  And, no, I’m not going to mention who X is. But I do know who X is. The thing is, X opened a business in Nashville a few years ago with the idea of seeking out local vendors who were experts in their field – a way to fill their wellness store with the best local products available.  They […]
