ABOUT AMBRE BLENDS

Staff Spotlight: Katie Thomas

The newest member at Ambre Blends isn’t new to the Ambre Blends family at all! Katie Thomas first met Ambre through fitness and wellness a few years ago, and even was in an Ambre Blends video shoot over the summer. In July, Katie came on board full time as an Executive Assistant.

“Katie is the perfect addition to our Ambre Blends Family,” said Ambre. “She adds so much to the vibe of this place and brings fresh, exciting ideas to the table.  As with everyone here, it was divine timing that our stars aligned and Katie has found her second home.”

If you meet Katie, she could make you a pretty cool animal out of a linen napkin from her time as a yacht stewardess. And you might see her in a cover band in the next couple years (that’s her five year plan)! But until then, read on to find out more about Katie…

What is your favorite part about working for Ambre Blends? I love the crew and the environment. I came from the holistic wellness world, so Ambre Blends is the perfect combo of business and wellness. There are live plants, natural lights, a bad ass kitchen, and obviously skin care everywhere. I haven’t been here as long and right away you can tell everyone is a family who takes pride in treating their role with a high level of priority. Everyone wants to be here!

What are some of your favorite organic products that you use? We eat as much organic as we can at home. I love organic rose water spray and use it a lot! Most of our stuff at home is organic when possible, and Good Earth cinnamon hot tea.

What is your favorite Ambre Blends product/essence? I love the Ambre 10ml Roll-On Essence Oil. I’ve been wearing it for probably seven or eight years. I also keep the Skin Tonic nearby. Alex keeps going through my Skin Tonic to shave with and he’s obsessed too.

What is a day in your life like? It’s incredibly glamorous! I wake up around 6 am and get moving, make breakfast for Kale (my four year-old son), make a smoothie if I have time, drop Kale off at school, then go to work. Depending on the day, I have a few wellness/fitness clients I train or head home and make dinner for the fam. After dinner, it’s play time. We play baseball in the yard with Kale and Tasso, our 120-pound Italian Mastiff. After Kale goes to bed, I hang with the hubs, have some friends over, or go to yoga!

What do you enjoy doing outside of work? Hot yoga, hanging with the family at the lake house, playing with neuro-health gadgets, wine with girlfriends, swimming with Kale, playing in the woods with the family, and volunteering with a leadership group I love.

Why do you think people should be using Ambre Blends products? People should know how much love and attention goes into every single product. The ingredients are the most pure and there’s a small group of women actually making your product. It’s crazy how much passion happens behind the scenes.

What has been one of the most rewarding experiences about working at Ambre Blends? I left working for myself and never realized how much I was missing being a part of a team. I love coming to work and knowing I get to be in a joyful and loving environment that is so much fun! Everyone puts everyone else’s needs as a priority so you leave feeling good about how you spent your day.

What was your first job? My first job (technically) was snow plowing with my dad and brother when I was around 10 years-old or so. We loved staying up late and getting to help. It was actually my brother’s company that he still has 24 years later!

What’s in Store for 2016 at Ambre Blends

It’s hard to believe that March has almost come to an end and we are a quarter of the way into 2016! With the first day of spring behind us, I have to share my gratitude with all of our loyal customers for such a tremendous 2015.

Ambre Blends had its largest annual increase in sales ever last year! Much of that is attributed to YOU, our loyal customers, who are branching out, wearing more of our line and making Ambre Blends part of your lifestyle. We’ve noticed that our customers who previously only wore one scent in a Roll-On are trying different scents and exploring our product offerings, including the Natural Deodorant, Pure Soy Wax Candles, Skin Tonic and more. Did you know that we have approximately 80 different products now?

Our retail stores are noticing the customer demand and stocking a more diverse selection of our products to help meet our customers’ wants and needs. Stores that have only carried Roll-Ons now stock Deodorant and Beard Kits, and we know we couldn’t have grown like this without you. Thank you to all of our incredible customers for the support, kind words, encouragement and suggestions. You have played such a large part in the growth of our company.

We have so much in store for you for the rest of 2016. For starters, we are now selling our Ambre Beards products individually as well as in the Men’s Grooming Kit. So gentlemen, if you need to restock your Face and Beard Oil, you can buy individually instead of only in the kit. We also will be debuting an unscented Skin Tonic just for your face (for men and women) due to customer demand. We’ve had people tell us that their eyes are sensitive to some of the oils when wearing the Skin Tonic on their face, so be on the lookout for small bottles in an unscented version.

April showers bring May flowers, but they’ll also bring in two new limited edition products you can find exclusively online. For Earth Day, we’ll be selling a limited quantity of our white birch display holders. We debuted these at our open house for our Indianapolis customers in December and they were a huge hit. Each birch display holds a 10 ml Roll-On and 30 ml refill bottle, which is a great way to let your oil sit and age before use.

Also in April, we’ll have a small limited supply of Ambre Essence Bubble Bath available online in the end of April. These will come in a beautiful frosted glass bottle. We’re launching the Bubble Bath just in time for Mother’s Day, so treat your mom to a luxurious bath, she deserves it. Get it while you can because once it’s gone, it’s gone!

Good news beer lovers: we are partnering with Sun King Brewing Company to come out with Lip Remedy made with hops. Instead of tasting like blood orange, this Lip Remedy will be similar to the taste of Sun King’s Grapefruit Jungle. If you’re not signed up for our newsletter yet, make sure to sign up so you can be informed about the release date of this limited edition product.

One of the things I’m most excited to announce is that I’m working on developing a baby line that will come out in the latter part of 2016. I was inspired to make a baby line a long time ago. I use these products on my own children because kids need quality, clean products just as much as adults do. I’ve been making my own products since my son was born, and with so many customers asking us for a children’s line we knew we had to do it. Our customers constantly tell me that they use our current products on their babies and toddlers, so we wanted to offer something more.

While the products we have now are already safe for your children, this will be a line exclusively for them. It will have a unique scent that is exclusive just for the baby line that will include oils beneficial to babies with colic, teething kids and more. In addition to products for your children, we’re developing on a belly oil for the baby line to help moms-to-be prevent stretch marks and also help heal stretch marks that are already present.

As always, we are committed to bringing you clean products that make you feel good about yourself and what you’re putting on your body. Thanks again for supporting Ambre Blends and helping us become the company we are today!
