Sold sporadically across the world’s drug stores, there can be nothing quite like the application of a little tiger balm – sold in small hexagonal jars – to a painful area in order to relieve pain, swelling, and other discomforts. For the price – and the simplicity of the product – it’s a wonders-worker in the alternative medicinal space, helping millions of people across the US, Europe, and Asia deal with muscular problems and more.
Expounding the merits of tiger balm isn’t difficult – you can display your stand of the product with details about its use, and open one jar for customers to experience the heat and tingle from the product before they buy.

It’s fair to say that the products that make use of the CBD compound are experiencing a zenith in 2019, and it is looking set to expand and continue as we head towards 2020. Here, your customers may be slightly distrustful of a drug that was, until recently, banned across the US and the UK – but that’s not to say that it was banned for a reasonable purpose. As science is continually showing us, the use cases for CBD oil are plentiful – one of the most exciting alternative medicines in the world.
As a store, you have a number of options when it comes to onboarding CBD products to your store. One of the simplest is to look to suppliers of CBD hemp seeds, which you can buy in bulk and process yourself, or with the help of a third party, in order to sell your own oils and supplements. You may also look to break into the marijuana industry if it’s legal in your state.
The final tip for alternative medicine stores is to consider buying a range of essential oils for customers to enjoy in the bath, on their bed linen or floating serenely around their home.

Nevertheless, the perfumed odors that emanate from essential oil bottles do produce a calming quality and can be the perfect gift for a loved one as Christmas approaches past. As such, essential oils are your final tip to help you boost your store’s sales for the future.
