We are highlighting Renee Bergere of Lotus 8, one of our star producers, as our producer of the month for December (20% off her products all month!). We think her body care products make amazing holiday gifts. Some of the Lotus 8 seasonal soaps and scents available at the Doylestown Food Market this month include an active charcoal soap which is great for removing toxins in the skin and makes for a great stocking stuffer; and a chai tea soap that uses the warming spices of ginger, clove and cinnamon. You will also find an array of Shea butters that help keep dry skin hydrated throughout the season, mists, vegan soaps, lip balms, and essential oil roll-on Synergy Blends for relaxation, sleep, and muscle aches. “The Synergy Blends combine two or more 100% pure essential oils that work harmoniously together for a highly therapeutic effect. They are best sellers because they work so well!”
Renee reports that her current product focus is blending essential oils for holistic relief of common ailments such as respiratory
conditions and headaches and overall, for helping people mentally, physically, and emotionally. “The oils can be used as an alternative to over the counter drug store products.” Commenting on a rising best seller, especially around the holidays, Renee states, “My product, Breathe, is a blend of peppermint, eucalyptus, and fir oils for colds and respiratory conditions. It helps to relieve congestion. I’m getting great comments from people who use the product.”
In general, Renee is getting a lot of rave reviews from customers. “They’re surprised that it works.” She added, “I think for a lot of oils, you have to try it to believe it – especially for those that are so used to taking other symptom relief medications. People are becoming believers once they use an oil blend product.” And it’s not only the oil blends that people have a positive response. As Renee says about one of her most popular soaps, “The red clay and pink Himalayan salt soap is the best for dry, itchy skin. Several customers have commented what a difference it is making.”
The Lotus 8 owner makes sure to emphasize, “A lot of thought goes into the ingredients and intended benefits of all my all my products before I begin production. Every product has an underlying benefit. Not only do they smell good, but there’s an underlying benefit to the soaps, lotions, and oils. All my soaps have the same base which is very moisturizing and nourishing and moisturizing for the skin.”
