Pamper yourself at this amazing shop while visiting Shipshewana!

By Lora Gates

My daughter and I love to pamper ourselves and Shipshewana has one of the best shops in town where we can do just that.

Lotions & Potions, located inside Yoder’s Red Barn Shoppes, offers skin, hair & body care products that you can customize for yourself.

 

You can create custom scented body, skin & hair care products including:

  • perfumes
  • lotions
  • bath gels
  • body spritzes
  • shampoo
  • conditioner
  • shaving gel
  • hand soap
  • massage oils
  • home fragrance spray
  • hairspray
  • and more!
All of these are custom designable by YOU! I took my daughter with me this week and we browsed, ok shopped😊 all the fun items they have to offer and the sales staff were super patient and helpful answering all of our questions along the way. Interesting tip shared with us was that some people don’t hold scents well on their body but do in their hair, so consider a design-your-own hairspray! Who would have known?

For You

First, we looked over the 500+ fragranced oils that can be worn directly on your skin or blended into your very own custom designed products. All in the amount you choose, so you can select a light or bold scent – and who wouldn’t want to smell like Pina Colada, right? The staff spent the extra time making sure I went away with exactly what I wanted. I was able to smell my favorite scents and narrow down my selection. When I couldn't decide between the two, they just mixed them and voila, Fudge Brownie Coffee Bath Salts, custom scented by me!

Essential Oils are all the rage and they definitely have their share of those, along with a variety of different diffusers you can use throughout your home, office or car. Spearmint and orange are the combo we chose. They can be diffused separately or together and my daughter is in love with the amazing aroma it leaves in her room.

For the Kids

Now what about some fun things for a young teen? Well, the aroma beads caught her attention fast. She filled a pretty sachet bag that she can put in her closet or sock drawer to keep her room smelling fresh despite her soccer, tennis and band season LOL!

There are great products for little ones as well. We bumped into these two cuties making their own scented, colorful lip gloss. The products offered are all hypo-allergenic too. So, they are even great for those with sensitive skin. And, we have found that we love the Piggy Paint, a line of odorless nail polish that makes everyone in our house happy😊!

And, don’t forget the boys… my 8-year old son loves to join us from time-to-time on our trip to Lotions & Potions and he enjoys mixing up his favorite bath gel and soap with a fun new creature selected to stuff in the bottle every time. A variety of plastic bugs and creatures are there for him to include and he often has trouble deciding, so sometimes we come away with more than one! Plus bribing him with a treat at Red Bud Gift Shop is always a winner!

For Everyone

Everyone loves something free right, well make sure you don't forget to get your very own glitter tattoo. Adults and kids both are welcomed to get a temporary glitter design applied of Fairy Dust. You can choose a star or heart and if you love it – and we sure do, you can buy your own glitter and wand to re-create your design over and over at home! (Mom tip… these are just glitter and body lotion so they are VERY temporary and no harsh chemicals or rubbing your kids arm till it is red to remove them either, YAY!)

With so much to do in this one store, you will not know where the time went while being mesmerized by all the glitter and glam there is, but don’t miss out on all the other exciting stores also located in the Red Barn Shoppes. They have nearly a dozen shops all in one location from treats & books to tea & furniture. If you are looking for fun and new things to do in Shipshewana, stop by on your next visit to Amish Country, located in front of the famous Shipshewana Flea Market on SR 5.
