📍 6649 Amory Ct Unit 6, Winter Park, FL 32792

Boutique Businesses:

Scrub away the day with a sugar scrub from the Naked Bar Soap Co! Lather up and relax for a full-body clean that will make you feel good and smell good. This is the best of both worlds—you get to support a small biz while giving yourself a mini spa day. Yes, please! We’re obsessed with the vanilla ginger that brings all the best smells of winter.

Our fave way to support: snag a bath bomb for your bestie as a birthday/galantine’s/just-thinking-of-you gift! We love the tangerine eucalyptus: the perf combo of energizing and relaxing.
