If you have yet to get a cold this winter, count yourself among the lucky! But, for the rest of us with the sniffles, sneezes, aches and pains, it’s time for a little TLC for our bodies. The Southern Link certainly sells the kinds of products that your customers can use in this time of chilly weather and chicken soup!
Something you may not think about on a regular basis is the state of your facial skin, particularly your lips! Not only are lip balms an easy item to sell at the cash wrap, but they are an essential part of a daily skin care routine to prevent chapped lips and even skin cancers. According to Elizabeth Tanzi, founder and director of Capital Laser & Skin Care, and associate clinical professor in the department of dermatology at George Washington University Medical Center,”Skin cancer in this area can be particularly dangerous, which is why everyone needs lip balm with SPF.” This is definitely true in the cold winter weather.
Natural Inspirations has exactly the product your store needs: an SPF 30 Lip Butter Display. Featuring 6 essential oil flavors, this ultra-hydrating organic blend of beeswax, sunflower oil, and coconut oil contains SPF 30 to shield lips from up to 97% of the sun’s harmful rays. This 36 piece display was one of the best sellers from the January show.
SPF 30 Lip Butter Display, SKU# 236000, $71.64 wholesale cost for 1 display.
Warmies’ Spa Therapy line containing warmable neck wraps, slippers, and more seemed like the natural choice for relief from aches and pains associated with the common cold. But, even better, is the best seller from the January show: the Original Hot-Pak Herbal Heat Pack Assortment that offers “soothing warmth and comfort, is safe, quick, and easy to use, and scented with relaxing lavender!
Taking our suggestion rather seriously, we checked into the benefits of heat therapy. According to Healthline, “Heat therapy works by improving circulation and blood flow to a particular area due to increased temperature. Increasing the temperature of the afflicted area even slightly can soothe discomfort and increase muscle flexibility. Heat therapy can relax and soothe muscles and heal damaged tissue.”
Hot Pak Soft Cord Assortment, SKU# HPSOFTCORDKIT, $72 wholesale for 1 case, 12 pieces, 4 gray, 4 lavender, 4 blue.
Last, our own suggestion for avoiding a cold, or even just relieving a non-sickness related chill, is to hop in the tub! Your bathroom could use a little ambiance, though…Check out Marmalade of London, our new candle line with dreamy fragrances that whisk you away from the winter not-so-wonderland!
The most popular fragrance from the January show was the Pacific Orchid and Sea Salt: the fragrance of Coconut, Orange, Bergamot on a middle of White Flowers, Vanilla, Pacific Orchid with base notes of Amber and Sea Salt. And the most common candle format are the gorgeous glass candle jars, as you see pictured. Warm up your soul with a little soft glow in your bathroom (or store)!
