About the Oil Bar

After helping to grow and turn a small New York based cosmetic, personal and hair care manufacturer in to a large and nationally recognized brand, I wanted to do something different.  

Over the years, customers would often ask me if we would make a product using a certain ingredient or scent. 99.9% of the time the answer was no.  Making a raspberry/ banana scented body butter for that one lady in Mobile, Alabama was just not economically feasible. 

I wanted to change that. So, one day, I was telling my future wife about the vision I had for a place where customers could come in and order whatever fragrance, essential, carrier oil or other ingredients they wanted made in their product and we would hand make it fresh and right there for them.

As I explained more, I said it would be kinda like “a bar” . That was when I had an “Aha” moment; yes…“The Oil Bar”.

We decided to leave the hustle and bustle of New York and move to the Mid-West and focus on starting our family and of course The Oil Bar.

Over the past seven years we have opened three retail stores where the only thing better than our products is our customer service.

If you have not had the opportunity to try our exceptional products or experience one of our stores, we invite you to shop online today where we try to bring as much of the in-store experience and service to you virtually and personally.
