|Spa-Maker© series coming soon. Aromatic Traditions™ 2016|
Do what you love and everything else will follow.
Aromatic Traditions™ is 4 years old. Our anniversary was 11/11/15. Usually I throw a nice party at my studio and people stop by to visit, shop my retail shelves and snack on delicious local goodies. This year I was busy packing up the final pieces for a natural baby line and prepping bulk orders for several spas.
You see, my focus has changed.
Changed because my customers asked.
I had no idea when I started that I would be doing Custom Manufacturing and Private Label. I put a few pages up on my website and the rest is word of mouth.
The best referral is from other customers. The learning curve has been a little steep. However, I like a good challenge and found that I love formulating and creating in my lab.
It is quiet, focused and creative.
I am also co-evolving with several of the spas who were my first customers. As they grow, so do I.
It felt natural today as I cleaned up my creative space and started to de-stash bottles and jars. I really do not have much overstock so my inventory is changing as well.
I have created several gift sets for the holidays and I am feeling a little bittersweet saying goodbye to some of my favorite products.
I will soon offer a first-come-first-serve discount to my online retail customers.
These formulas will now be available for my new niche - spas and massage therapists who make their own products and have reached a point where they want someone else to produce for them.
It is a niche I am familiar with as I was a massage therapist for 25 years and know the industry. I also love working with spas. I love people who pamper and encourage others in the tradition of self-care.
I'm excited for this new chapter in Aromatic Traditions™ life.
Enjoy the holiday discounts online and call me if I can help your spa or massage practice.
