What a relief! I purchased the relaxation eye pillow to use on my infant for his irritable stomach. Moments after I heated it up and put it on his tummy, he fell fast asleep. I love the natural calming effects of the lavender. This is a great alternative to gas drops even if it isn't the intended purpose of the product. Also, SUPER fast shipping. Two thumbs up for this Etsy business.
Welcome to Whiffy Bean Bags!
Back in 2006, I was at home with my then 3 year old daughter and 1 year old son. I had recently left my job in banking to stay at home with both my kids on a full time basis. Both kids were napping (thank goodness) and I went out to the backyard to do a little gardening. I found myself staring at several lavender plants that were growing lavishly and were swarming with bees. I wondered to myself what I could do with all that lavender.......and there it began!
I researched how to dry lavender properly....bought a sewing machine off Ebay, went to the fabric store for the first time ever and bought myself 3 yards (clearly I had no idea that that would be way more fabric than I ever needed at the beginning) of Blue's Clues fabric! Sewing machine arrived, I read the manual and out popped a lavender sachet! I thought perfect...it's a kid's version of the old grandma like lavender sachet in white linen with an embrioidered lavender flower that we all know too well!
So I showed the kids my creation and allowed them to name the business..since they were little, they referrred to the scent as "whiffy" and the sachet looked like a "bean bag"....voila we were now Whiffy Bean Bags!
Trademarked, branded, website developed, blog started, Etsy shop opened and many years in between and I am now able to devote 100% of my time to our little business! (since there are no more butts to wipe, sippys to fill, kids to dress..I could go on!) As you can see, our Etsy shop was opened some time ago but over the years, I primarily sold Whiffys through our standalone website. I have recently changed our approach and will now focus my energy over on Etsy!
Thank you for visiting our shop!
