Tell us about your business and why you started.
I started my business, Farmhouse Relaxing Bath + Body because I went to a lavender farm with a friend and was looking for ideas on what to do with the fresh lavender that I had picked. I went on Pinterest, as most of us do, and found a recipe for a lavender sugar scrub and absolutely fell in love! I had been looking for something to do to supplement my 9-5 and decided to go for it.
What has been the most effective way of raising awareness of your business and getting new customers?
The best way of getting new customers and raising awareness of my business has been on Facebook. Advertising on facebook groups has helped to get people looking in my store. I also host giveaways to promote awareness.
What products do you offer?
I sell bath and body products and also started a line of #momlife products which includes t-shirts, coffee cups, etc.
What are your favorite business tools and why?
I love Later to schedule my Instagram posts! I use Canva almost every day to create my graphics! It’s so easy to use because I don’t have any experience in graphic design.
What is the best advice you have received recently?
The best advice that I have received recently is to do a brain dump of everything you want to or need to do. That way you can clear your brain and move on from there.
