Out in the Streets with Ashley’s Back to Nature Day 53


Image

Today there was massive rain along with thunderstorms, so that kept me out of the streets selling Ashley’s Back to Nature aromatherapy products and the scared dog hiding underneath the bed. On the positive side, storms produce beautiful rainbows.

When I’m not out selling, I’m home doing something to keep this biz moving upwards. I called a local nursing home to see about selling my KureAll Skin Balm to help their patients with bed sores. The director was very receptive, but said before they can use a product, it has to be approved by the FDA.  She was generous enough to schedule an appointment for me to come to the nursing home to introduce my products to her employees for a couple of hours on their next payday. Nice lady! I’m sure I’ll make some good sales that day along with helping pick-up a few spirits.

After our conversation, I called the FDA, was on hold for around 30 minutes, then got someone on the other end of the line who immediately told me to go to the internet. Why is it every time I need help with something, I’m told to go to the internet? My usual self was persistent for answers instead of the run around, so she finally gave me another number to call. I got voice mail, left a message, no return call as of ten hours ago. I’ll keep trying until I get this KureAll Skin Balm approved and eventually turned into a household name.

The crazy thing is the FDA approves all these drugs and people die. Do you have any idea how many people succumb from drugs prescribed by doctors every year? Many, many thousands of people. Here I am, trying to get my natural and organic KureAll Skin Balm in nursing homes with ingredients coming from nature, the tea tree and lavender essential oils, along with beeswax from the bees, sweet almond, jojoba and wheat germ oil and vitamin E.  I understand regulations but at least return my call and screw the internet.

After the phone calls, I made many jars of Whipped Creme Body Butter Lotion, my biggest seller. I also made some Stress Relief Oil with lavender and peppermint essential oils, using sweet almond oil as my carrier oil. Although sweet almond oil is full of vitamins and proteins, I prefer jojoba oil because it doesn’t go rancid, it’s high in antioxidants and the oil is golden in color so it makes the perfume more visually appealing.

After making the products, I had the task of putting the labels and logo on all the jars and bottles. After labeling, I loaded my purple carrying case with my products so I’ll be ready to go door to door tomorrow.  It’s not suppose to rain, but will be freezing cold. I’ll bundle up well and do my thing.

Out in the Streets with Ashley’s Back to Nature Day 52

Another day revolving around a car, so not much time spent on my aromatherapy business. I did deliver an order of “Lavender Air, Body & Linen Spritz.”  I surprised her with a gift of my freshly made “Healing Bath, Feet & Shower Salts” scented with lavender. I also gave her a KureAll Skin Balm to give to her mother. This lady is a very good customer, so it makes me feel good to give gifts to people who appreciate Ashley’s Back to Nature products and spend their hard earned cash with me.

I mailed the order I got from my website yesterday, sent her a gift of salts as well. Then I put labels on products I recently made. What I really need to be doing is working on how to get people to my website so they can buy my natural and organic products. For me, that’s drudge work and I can’t seem to make myself do what I truly need to be doing to grow this biz. The main reason is because I’m not sure how and when I start researching search engine optimization and things of that nature, I get bored quickly and don’t comprehend what I’m reading. I’d rather be making and whiffing perfume oils.

I’d be willing to pay someone knowledgeable to help me, but how does one find that person? I’ve tried a few times and have been disappointed. I don’t have money to throw away. I need results that will get mass amounts of people to my website. Any suggestions from anyone who may be reading this blog?

Smiles til my next post,
