Essential oil business grows to meet demand

First Prev 1 2 3 4 5 Next Last

An essential oil business has introduced homemade products and natural, organic supplements to its offerings.

Owners Mark and Mariam Boothe embarked on this natural journey five years ago after discovering the benefits of essential oils. It led to them opening their mobile business, Essentials.

The couple have noticed growth and high demand for products since launching.

“Business has certainly increased since becoming public with more people having a desire to take control of their health. People want to get off of pharmaceutical drugs and treat their ailments and sicknesses as natural and holistically as possible,” Mr Boothe said.

The Boothes now make several homemade products such as eczema cream, Mark's Miracle Pain Rub, hair treatments and air fresheners.

“We also now offer organic, all natural supplements such as systemic enzymes, stabilised oxygen and bone broth that have become high in demand. We do extensive research on finding the best blends and products for whatever condition or need required,” Mr Boothe said.

The couple continue to receive positive feedback, and they have set up a WhatsApp group to share health information to members.

Mr Booth said: “People are very appreciative for receiving new information about healthy living and lifestyle. People also feel more empowered to ask question of their doctors and not just settle for the first diagnosis or treatment given. They know they have options.”

The couple eventually plan to have a storefront location. Essentials will also be having a Health Seminar on December 1 at a location yet to be announced.
