Savannah, Mo. – Miss Doyle’s Apothecary & Wild Game Drops is a one of a kind businesslocated in Savannah, Missouri. Owners, Cheryl & Robert Mitchell began thinking about it fifteen years ago when they saw a need for products that would help the body instead of harm it. Cheryl began making soy wax candles and wax melts and began researching natural medicine alternatives and essential oils.
“We had been making lotions, soaps and candles for friends and family for so many years there started to be a demand for them. We wanted to be able to bring affordable natural environmentally friendly products to everyone,” Mrs. Mitchell said.
When the Mitchells learned through other businesses in the area of the free services Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation (NWMEF) offers entrepreneurs, they contacted the organization.
“We have been blessed by the assistance of the Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation with business advice and also helping get the word out on our new venture. One cannot put a price on being able to tap into the knowledge of so many people in business,” the Mitchells say of the help they have received from NWMEF.
Although they have a great variety of useful and healthful products, they are showcasing a unique one: Wild Game Drops, which they began producing in 2012. These are made of soy wax with whitetail deer urine – the goal behind them is to bring all natural 100% biodegradable attractants and cover scents into the hunting market.
“Hunting is such a green way of living so why not use green products and reduce waste,” Mr. Mitchell said of Wild Game Drops.
In addition to Wild Game Drops, Miss Doyle’s Apothecary offers all natural lotions, body wash, handmade soaps, and candles scented with aromatherapy essential oils and waters.
