Clytie Belle started small. I started to experiment with soap making. When I received my first delivery of my soap goodies form Jackie, I found a recipe for lip balm on the pamphlet that came with my delivery. I decided to make a small batch of the lip balm to try it out. Initially I handed out a few of these lip balms to my colleagues to test, and the feedback was so overwhelming that I decided to put the lip balm into tubes with pretty labels.
A very good friend of me was stung by a scorpion and she suffered from migraines and sore and stiff muscles.
I was always interested in the healing properties of the aromatherapy oils and decided to make her a massage balm with some Lavender, Rosemary and Benzoin essential oils that work specifically on migraines and sore and stiff muscles. Her reaction to this treatment was so good that she asked me to make her a big batch of this balm, which resulted in a rich, smooth body butter that can be used all over the body for aches and pains or just a nice, relaxing massage. This body butter is one of the products you can find in my catalogue. I also asked her to test the lip balm I made, and right there and then, she ordered 250 lip balms to sell in her shop on her guest farm.
Then the idea of selling my products started. I’ve set up a face book page, and created this online store. Still very small, but baby steps first before I can take the big leap!
