Refill Your Empty Bottles

Refill Your Empty Bottles

One of the biggest dilemmas I deal with is being an eco-friendly company, yet using so much PLASTIC for product packaging, ugh.  It’s a genuine struggle.  Unfortunately, there’s no way around it, for us.  Plastic is significantly lighter and safer than glass (regarding shipping purposes) and much less expensive (regarding being able to offer our customers natural products at a reasonable price). I’m hoping to have come up with a solution: a refill station to fill your empties.  Note, you can fill ANY empty container, it does NOT have to be an Opulent Blends original.  We have tested this idea...

Three Years Later

Welcome to our new blog. I wanted to introduce myself…I am Heather DeForest, Opulent Blends’ Biggest Fan, Cheerleader and Team Leader, aka Marc’s wife ;). Marc and I have been together for seventeen years. We have shared many adventures through his entrepreneur spirit. Opulent Blends is by far my favorite! We’ve gotten to experience the excitement together through every step. We really are a family business.

Our company was founded on demanding expectations of creating only the highest quality products. We didn't stop there though.

It is our commitment to our product, our customers, our planet, and our community.
