We have a list of known items that will increase your profits plus keep your customer healthy and happy in a natural herbal way.

Herbal teas are a hit this year. We find that using an unknown tea ingredient (unknown to the American public)like South African Rooibos attracts attention . You can combine peppermint or citrus peels to the rooibos for different and new flavors.

You should also hand out a very small flyer about the healthy benefits of Rooibos tea. (We would provide you with that information).

By purchasing three different teas in bulk you can offer several different combination.

For instance you purchase Rooibos, Peppermint, Chamomile You can offer
Rooibos tea
Peppermint tea
Chamomile tea
Rooibos and Peppermint,
Chamomile and Rooibos
Chamomile and Peppermint tea for indigestion

Now here is the kicker to this,,, these teas are all a healthy cup of tea but can also be a great bath tea. Rooibos is great for skin conditions as is chamomile and peppermint is an energizing bath tea.
Herbal Bath teas are a hot selling item also!!
A simple recipe for an herbal bath is

1 part chamomile
1 part oatmeal
2 part epson salt
1 part crushed lavender buds
1 part calendula petals
Combine together , offer a small 3×5 cotten drawstring bag for you customer to use in the bath .
or fill a heatsealable teabag and offer 3-4 teabags.
( I just fold and staple my teabags shut)

Besides herbal tea, green tea and gourmet black teas are very popular. Teas with uncommon names sell well. Green teas can also be mixed with other herbs to create your own signature type teas. Using a creative name to your blended tea increases sales.

Herbal soap loaves still continue to gain popularity. People love to see you slice a piece of soap for them. Offer samples for smelling only so that the rest of the bars do not get handled by 1,000 different people. Some venders forget that they can wrap and decorate the whole 1 pound loaf of soap and offer it that way. It makes a great gift!

Herbal Pet Products are a big seller. I have found that people will spend money on their dog or cat before they will send it on themselves. Catnip pillow & toys are very easy to make. Just sew together your cut out pattern of material and stuff with catnip. They will be gone at the end of the day.

Pain relief pillows are also a great seller. These can be made is various sizes . The neck pain relief pillows seems to be very popular. These contain flax seed , lavender, rosemary, lemon verbena and other herbs.

Lavender Sachets are popular. Using material and lace scrapes are a great way to use up end materials yet produce a heavenly smelling products. Patchouli Sachets have a seductive scent but also repel moths.

  2. Hi everyone. I have a graphic design I’m trying to give away to anyone making t-shirts. It’s the cover of my book, ‘If They Ask for a Hand, Only Give Them a Finger.’ It might sound in-your-face but is is relieved by the words ‘a novel by,’ and the words ‘sidewalkbooks.com’ Please, anyone interested, take a look at http://www.sidewalkbooks.com/ and scroll down slightly to the cover.
