CEO Heidi Leist and COO Bryan Leist invited those in the Tarpon Springs and Tampa communities to see Lemongrass Spa’s most recent expansion of their shipping facility with an open house and behind-the-scenes tour of their national headquarters.
The Mayor of Tarpon Springs, Chris Alahouzos, joined them for a ribbon cutting ceremony and presented the Leists with a key to the city. “It has been three years ago since I visited this place,” said Mayor Alahouzos. “Now I look at the transformation and growth that you have done in three years. It is amazing!”
Lemongrass Spa Products is a family-owned and operated business by husband and wife team, Bryan and Heidi Leist. On a mission to find safer skincare and bath products, Heidi started creating her own and shared them at home spa parties in Colorado. Her commitment to non-toxic products and empowering families with an income is what’s fueled the growth of Lemongrass Spa’s nationwide field of direct-selling consultants and loyal customers. Five years ago, this expansion led to relocating to Tarpon Springs, Florida where they found a larger manufacturing and distribution warehouse.
Lemongrass Spa Products continues to grow and expand their team providing more work opportunities in Tarpon Springs and beyond including its customer service and small production facility in Pine, Colorado. For more information, go to LemongrassSpa.com.
About Lemongrass Spa Products:
The story of Lemongrass all began when CEO Heidi Leist started making her own handmade bath crystals and body polish. Her freshly made natural products were so popular at home parties that she invited others to be a part of the company as consultants. Shortly after, her husband and COO Bryan Leist, jumped in feet-first leaving his IT job to work together.
Giving back to the community has been a part of Heidi’s passion since the beginning. During breast cancer awareness month, the company sends thousands of complimentary Loving Care Gift Sets to cancer patients. From the letters received from gift recipients, Heidi and her team compiled inspirational survivor stories and with the assistance of Mimosa Publishing, and released the book, Soul Soothing Stories of Cancer Survivors in November of 2017.
Heidi has been a featured speaker with the Direct Selling Association, Direct Sales Education Foundation and women’s groups. She and her team have spearheaded fundraisers including Operation Freedom Feet, a Giving Back fund to provide resources to local charities and has donated products to Feeding Tampa Bay, Ronald McDonald House, Children’s Hospital of Denver and numerous disaster relief efforts throughout the years.
