BY NANCY GAGNET | MIRROR REPORTER — Spoiled, a health and wellness shop featuring essential oils and other holistic products, recently moved to uptown Maumee. “We love Maumee. I live in Maumee and I love the fact that I live and work in the same community,” said owner Kim Abair. She and her husband Kevin first opened the shop last year in a 400-square-foot space on Sophia Street. After experiencing rapid growth, the couple moved the business to a new 1,400-square-foot space on Conant Street. An open house took place last month in the much larger shop, which offers more products and services with room to expand. For example, the store now carries handcrafted products from about a dozen local artisans. A new massage therapy room has also been added where massages using holistic oils and products will be offered, Kim said. “When you use a good product, the massage is so much more effective on day two, three and four because the oils, which are free of toxins and harmful chemicals, go systemic,” she said. Educational classes featuring information on holistic health are also offered weekly, and painting and yoga classes are being planned. Spoiled carries a full line of 100-percent agricultural, organically grown and U.S.-processed CBD oils and Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) essential oils and products. Essential oils carry a variety of health benefits and can be used as dietary supplements and for aromatherapy, Kim said. CBD oils are made from the hemp plant but do not contain THC, which is the chemical in marijuana that makes people feel “high.” These natural oils provide many benefits, such as reducing anxiety, aiding sleep, fighting inflammation, treating arthritis and more, she said. Since opening the shop, Kim is both amazed and pleased by the response from the community. New customers routinely find the store and on a daily basis someone is looking for a natural alternative to medications, especially to Xanax, a controlled substance often used to help with anxiety issues, she said. While Kim would never tell someone to stop taking medication, she does recommend trying something natural first. “As a society, our general population is tired of medication if it is not necessary. What we are doing isn’t working,” she said. “There is such a need in the community for a place to get good holistic product. People are realizing that they need to be an advocate for their own health.” Spoiled is located at 209 Conant St. in uptown Maumee. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Information can also be found on the website at www.spoiledhealth.com.
