Vendor Stories: Sam Wish
We love a good sugar scrub. And we’re downright obsessed with an essential oil mix that melts a bad case of the Mondays away.
You too? Meet Samantha Wishlinski, the Austin-based small business owner behind Sam Wish organic and all-natural apothecary products.
“Sam Wish originally opened in 2010 as a vintage and upcycled clothes store,” says Sam. “I was a stay-at-home mom to a new baby girl and wanted something fun and meaningful to do in my free time. In 2013, I became really passionate about my health and the health of my family. I was learning more and more about the toxic chemicals we were exposed to every single day via our home and body products and it absolutely shocked me. I decided to take matters into my own hands and started to make my all-natural, chemical-free body products.”
Soon thereafter she brought a few homemade lip balms to a market that she frequently sold her vintage threads at and her customers were sold. Since then she has slowly exited her vintage clothing business and built her apothecary brand based on health, well-being and mindfulness and products she personally finds a need for her in life and own home.
“I want to offer products that I use myself, that I have taken the time to perfect, that I believe in and that truly add to my life instead of diminish it,” she says.
Today Sam Wish includes crazy-good smelling body scrubs, essential oil roll-ons, bath soaks and more. The simple glass jar packaging with pretty hand-drawn style labels are just as appealing as the fresh scents and healthy ingredients. We are thrilled to carry a handful of our favorite products (do not miss the peppermint body scrub, people) that we personally tested at shopfleastyle.com.
