Private Label Success in New Hampshire

A seed Deb Jasien of Fields of Ambrosia planted in 2014 has finally sprouted. Her company is now private labeling for a local Conway, New Hampshire merchant that focuses on sustainable, fair trade, and American Made clothing, jewelry, and accessories. Deb and her team created a Hemp Seed Oil based product line packaged in PCR plastic and recycled paper. The ingredients are all organic and fair trade.

The brand name of the new line is Scentsimilla, a play on “sensimilla,” the flowering female cannabis plant. You can find the new line at Positive Vibrations New Hampshire.

Christina Wennstrom hosted her first curated pop-up shop last week! The South Bay Faves event took place in the South Bay beach Area of Los Angeles.

Complimentary Henna Art in Maryland!

Recently, Khadija Dawn Carryl of Henna Sooq in Elkridge, Maryland, offered complimentary henna designs to anyone who visited the Origins store in Columbia Mall. If you've never had your henna done by Khadija, you need to add it to your bucket list. It's amazing.

Khadija's services was a super complement to the other services offered at the store, including complimentary mini-facials and discounts on everything in the store. I hope Khadija does this again. I'll be first in line when she does.
