Scents, Fragrance Oils? That has been my question all month. I am wanting some new oils. Tired of the same old ones and been trying to decide just what would be different, will customers buy it, will I like it. Do you, the customer want something new with a description that just entices you to buy? Or do you want the tried and true like Plumeria, Cinnamon, Rose, Honeysuckle, Mulberry, Cinnamon Bun, Pumpkin? So many of the "new" scents/oils I have found smell so much like these basic ones until I just can't decide. Will you buy Rose quicker if I name it Red Rose or Queen Elizabeth's Rose Garden? Do customers buy because they like the name and the description of the scent?
Well these are things I am mulling over this morning while I make some Nag Champa Votives. This is a new Nag Champa, the supplier d/c the one I had been using and loved so hoping this will be as good. That is another problem you run into with fragrant oils. Just when you find one you and your customers really love, bam, it gets d/c!! Then you start looking for a replacement and 9 out of 10 times you will not find one that smells as good as the one d/c.
I do have a new product I just added yesterday. Hand Sanitizing Gel, love this stuff. Keep it in my car, handbag, kitchen counter, desk in shop. It would be ideal to give your children to keep in their pockets to have to use through out the day. Also for you! According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) it is estimated that 80 percent of all infections are spread by hands. Hands come into contact with millions of germs every day. Hand sanitizers are effective against both bacteria and viruses, health experts say.
Hand washing, and the use of hand sanitizers when soap and water are not available, are among the easiest and most important steps you can take to prevent the spread of germs that can cause illness. My Hand Sanitizing Gel uses the recommended 62% alcohol with a special blend of moisturizers and skin conditioning agents to kill germs and leave hands feeling moist and refreshed. This hand sanitizing gel includes Glycerin which helps moisturize, Aloe Vera which helps prevent dry, cracked or peeling skin, and Pro Vitamin B-5 and Vitamin E which contribute to healthy looking and great feeling skin.
