After running Potions 11 Skincare as a side hustle for 3 years I am finally ready to incorporate it into an official business, Potions 11 Skincare and Apothecary! I am a massage therapist located in Austin Texas, who started making her own body butter and signature scents with essential oils to use during massage services. A lot of my clients loved the product and asked if I sell them. I wasn’t at the time, but it was an easy choice to start. With my creativity and love for DIY projects I quickly made my first jars and sold them as soon as they were displayed on social media. I’ve added gloss balms, soap scrubs, solid perfumes, bar soaps, and candles to the list. My products are water-free, made for normal to dry skin, free of toxins, vegan or natural.
I made my first skull themed intention candle during the Covid shutdown, and it sold quickly. I began taking more orders for the candles and that became my main income until I could reopen my massage suite. I am surprised by the amount of support I receive just making sells from Facebook. I am ready to expand, add more lines of products to my shop, publicize my apothecary and give it a physical home on the internet and a shop open to the public. This is a big project that needs your support. The donations will be used for LLC application, website and advertisement, education to further my formulation knowledge, equipment and displays, photography, bulk order for wholesale supplies and materials, and leasing a storefront.
My name is Donna Jones, owner of Potions 11 Skincare and Sandglass Therapeutic Massage, and I am very grateful for the community’s support of small business. #DonnaMeansBusiness
