Judging by the poll it seems people would like to see the Winter blend of the Panacea Hair Salve stick around, which is fantastic! I've also gotten requests for an Unscented Panacea... which puts me in a bit of fix.
In an ideal world (i.e. one in which I no longer had a day job and NightBlooming was my job, I could blend up as many different iterations of any of my products as my customers could ever want, but realistically that is simply not the case, no matter how much I desire it was.
So here's my proposed idea:
- To eventually phase out the Vegan blend in favor of the winter blend. I still have some supplies for making this, so I would continue to offer it until I ran out of supplies.
- Winter would become a permanent addition to the store. From customer feedback I've gathered that the Vegan seems to work similarly on hair to the Winter, so from a usability standpoint this should still satisfy those hair types that work best with the current Vegan hair salve.
- We would introduce an Unscented Version of the Normal salve. Why normal? Because it has the most neutral smell of the three current blends. Unscented doesn't mean scent-free, and several of the herbal extracts that make the salves work contribute to the scent. So even if I didn't add any of the oils I do just for added olfactory bliss, there's still smell there, and the normal would give the best base for either those that wanted to add their own scents, or those that were sensitive to scents.
It's your feedback that will ultimately dictate this change, so please let me know your thoughts, and forward this along to others so they can join the conversation!
