Out in the Streets with Ashley’s Back to Nature Day 51


Today I had to wait on the frog man from Geico Insurance to write me a check to cover a fender bender that happened on News Years Day. A great way to start 2012. I was inside the Dollar Tree store searching for boxes to put my “First Aid Kit for the Winter” products, and while inside the store, I found out my car had been hit in the parking lot. Fortunately the man who hit my car didn’t run off like a coward.

Tomorrow I have to take the car into the body shop to be repaired, so that will be 2 or 3 days I won’t be able to hit the streets selling Ashley’s Back to Nature aromatherapy products. I’ll make some phone calls to prior customers and work on other business projects that have been nagging at me, like how to get people to http://www.ashleysbacktonature.com, but I’d much rather be out selling bringing in some cash flow. I’ve got to keep my momentum going.

I received an order today from my website and a big re-order over the telephone, so that made me cheerful. All I’ve got to do now is figure out how to get mega orders from my website and continue to get re-orders. I feel confident this will happen because of all the testimonials I receive and I know how amazing Ashley’s Back to Nature products work.

Out in the Streets with Ashley’s Back to Nature Day 45


It’s freezing cold up here in the North Georgia Mountains, the coldest day of this winter so far. Tomorrow when I finally hit the streets again, I will have to bundle up in warm clothing and make sure to take my “Breathe Easy” along for the ride to keep the sniffles away.

Today I took photos of my aromatherapy “First Aid Kit for the Winter,” adding my “Get Rid of Germs” spray to the kit (above photo.) The complete kit is $39, a savings of $11 buying all five pieces together. Every item in the kit has something wonderful to offer and can help chase away some of the winter blues. I use pure essential oils in all the products and they are loaded with vitamins, flower extracts and anti-oxidants that fight nasty free radicals. Everything in the kit nourishes, protects and heals your skin from face to feet.

Today I mailed out my $100 aromatherapy order to Pennsylvania, a gift for two ladies from my ex-boyfriend Michael. I’m sure they will be happy with their Ashley’s Back to Nature aromatherapy products. It was a nice gesture on Michael’s part.

UPS picked up the laser printer today. The fellow over the telephone told me it would be around a month before I’d receive my check for the returned printer, yet when I purchased it from Office Depot, the $254 was immediately deducted from my debit card. I understand they have to get the printer back in good order before issuing me a refund, but a month, come on. That’s corporate America for you. They’ll take you for every cent they can if you let them.

Now it’s time for me to go run some warm bath water to take a bath in my “Healing Bath, Feet and Shower Salts” scented with Peppermint and Pine. I’ll spray some Rosemary on top of the bath water and just sit for a few minutes to relax my tired, achy muscles, relax my nervous system and take some of the toxins from my skin cells.

When I get out from the relaxing bath, I’ll put on my “Whipped Creme Body Butter Lotion” to nourish and feed my skin and smell delicious. Then I’ll apply some “Rosehip Face Serum” and “Smooth as Slik Face Moisturizer” to nourish my face with vitamins. flower extracts and anti-oxidants that help fight the aging process. What more can a girl ask for?

Out in the Streets with Ashley’s Back to Nature Day 44


Today I came up with another product to add to my aromatherapy “First Aid Kit for the Winter.” It’s  called “Get Rid of Germs.” It’s a disinfectant with tea tree and eucalyptus oils and will come in a 4 oz cobalt blue spray container for $8. You can spray the air if someone coughs or sneezes in your space, spray and wipe door knobs and anything else that may have contact with germs.

I’m anxious to hit the streets and start selling again which won’t be until Wednesday. Tomorrow will be the first day back at work for a lot of people, so they will be stressed trying to play catch up and in bad moods since they’re back at work after having a lot of time off. I also have to take care of a car issue, but Wednesday….. watch out because here I come.

I did get a $100 order today over the telephone, so that makes me feel perky. I have a good feeling 2012 is going to be a great year for Ashley’s Back to Nature. I’m looking forward to giving back some of what I make to people in need.

Laser Printer #3 waiting to be picked up by UPS, the third printer in a month. My labels are still smearing, so I’ll have to make do with my inkjet printer until I figure out a solution. I’m determined to have perfect labels for my fabulous products. Is there anyone out there who can guide me as to the most economical way to print my labels without them smudging or smearing? I can’t afford to have them printed professionally, especially since I have so many products with various scents.

Out in the Streets with Ashley’s Back to Nature Day 43

As much as I dislike corporate America, one of the advantages is you get paid for holidays. If you’re like myself and you worked mostly on commission, the pay wasn’t too great, but at least you knew there was some money coming in. Being self-employed and not able to hit the streets selling because of the holidays has me anxious. I don’t like it when there is no cash flow coming in, just going out. It makes me feel like I’m getting behind and when I do finally hit the streets again, I have to be real careful not to appear desperate because people can smell urgency.

I went out looking today for nice containers to market my aromatherapy “First Aid Kit for the Winter.” Nothing. I came home and made a batch of “Whipped Creme Body Butter Lotion” and “Smooth as Silk Face Moisturizer (above photo).” When I went to do the labels, the agony started again with my new laser printer not wanting to work. I’m probably going to have to take this printer back and start from square zero again.

Looking forward to the day when I can hire someone to help me with the petty things that take up so much of my time and keep me spinning  my wheels.

Out in the Streets with Ashley’s Back to Nature Day 37


I will be so glad when everything gets back to semi-normal again and I can go out and sell my lovely aromatherapy products that nourish and heal.

After taking photos today of my First Aid Kit for the Winter, I put it on my website. When I go to view my website on Foxfire, everything is just how I designed the pages. When I view through internet explorer, it’s a disaster. The paypal buttons are on top of the text and everything is out of order. I looked a few minutes ago through internet explorer and my First Aid Kit wasn’t even showing yet and my product pages were still a jumbled mess. Yet when I veiw through Foxfire, walla, there is the First Aid Kit. Does anyone reading this blog have any suggestions on how I can fix this problem? I called the folks I built my website through, they are clueless. They blamed it on the internet explorer because they didn’t want to be bothered. Their customer services skills are lacking.

Below is  the ad for my First Aid Kit for the Winter I designed today.
