Oh, the Christmas season... From parties with co-workers (for the fortunate few here in Alberta), and gatherings with friends and family, it really is a fun and festive time of year.
I've certainly had a busy but fun season juggling family needs, events with friends and of course a Christmas market season that started back in October.
It was an interesting sales season and I learned again where my products are best understood, what markets are better coordinated and what communities really support local, hand-made quality items.
It's hard to compete with a recessive economy and shoppers were noticeably more selective, yet Auroma's product sales increased over last year! I'm so honoured for return customers and new ones that trust my natural products. We sold out of lip balm and pedicure pucks - and our new Thirsty Body Lotion was a hit!
2017 brings a new year filled with promise and new products based on consumer requests. Stay tuned...
As always, I'm listening - if there is anything you would like to have created in a petroleum-free version, reach out to me and let's see. It's never to late to get back to basics I always say.
To everyone reading this: Thank you for following my website blogs, my Facebook updates (Auroma Soy Candles) my very great friends who helped me manage life during the Christmas market season (Ruth & Heather) and everyone who purchases our products.
My family thanks you very sincerely. It's a lot of work to present our best to you for your good health, but it's also an extreme pleasure.
Merry Christmas and a very happy, healthy New Year everyone!!
