LAB MANAGER, BATHE ONESELF LLC

 

What is your company?

BATHE Oneself - all natural, therapeutically focused skin care and body elixirs.

BATHE products provide a self-care ritual that's resonant with all the good vibes innately inherent in Aromatherapy, using only pure and therapeutic-grade ingredients given to us by Mother Earth.

Why did you see a need for these products in the current market?
More and more people are turning to alternative methods of self-care. I am grateful to provide an all natural, quality product that truly supports health and well-being. Also, my coursework at Bastyr University has expanded my knowledge to provide private formulations for individuals specific needs.

How did you get started?
Originally formulating skin care for my daughter during those teenage years and her skin loved that. 
I expanded my use of Aromatherapy and Essential Oils when my father passed away and stress took over my body like it never had before. I chose a natural coarse of dealing with the stress rather than the pill popping route the doctors recommended. I have never looked back.

How do you market your business? How are people aware of your business?
Right now most of my business comes from word of mouth. I have one Wellness Group in the Portland area that carries my products and another SPA that is picking them up the first of March. I have also sold at Holiday Markets. My experience has been that my clients have had such remarkable results using my products, they can't wait to spread the word.

Where do you see your business in the next year? In the next five years? The next ten years?
In the next year I see my products being sold regionally and expanding my private consultations for custom essential oil blends and alternative support for natural healing modalities.
In the next five years I will be opening my first Self-Care Sanctuary. Allowing individuals a variety of self-care services implemented with a full line of BATHE products. I will be taking my product line nationally.
The next ten years BATHE will be international. Our Self-Care Sanctuaries will be a destination. 

Does your business have a stated mission statement, the reason that this business exists?
We are passionate about creating natural constituent synergies that truly sooth mind, body and soul!

Can you describe your customers?
The discerning individual that appreciates quality, all natural modalities that support health and healing - mind, body and soul.

Why do your customers select you over your competitors?
The quality of our products and our offering of private formulations. We carefully select our essential oils from boutique distillers, recognizing the energy behind the production of the oils is very powerful. Often the essential oils we use are not well known and can be hard to find. But our passion is to combine the most naturally therapeutic constituents that can be found in nature for the most optimum results, not only in the body, but also in the mind and spirit. We assess the therapeutic properties as well as the chemical constituents within each of our oils. My expanded knowledge of Aromatherapy and Essential Oils through coursework at Bastyr University allows me to dig much deeper into the support my clients need in their natural remedies.
