Product Research

I am in the throes of developing new products. The problem with this is that there are so many options when it comes to ingredients it is hard to know when to stop looking.

Working out how oils will work together, or if indeed they will, is all part of a somewhat complicated process, and takes a certain amount of trial and error. Luckily, this also means a great deal of testing, a perk of the "job."

Products currently under development are bath oils (essential oil blends sorted, but a decision needs to be made about base oils); eye gel, again a decision about oils needs making; and face serum(s), ditto.

There is also the thorny question of packaging. I have found some fabulously gorgeous bottles for the bath oils, but they are not cheap, so I will have to think carefully about my pricing structure. These will be aimed at the luxury end of the market, so the packaging has to be perfect, and the bottles are absolutely drool worthy.
