Lighting the Way Locally

We are huge advocates for supporting local businesses which is why we want to share Nekkid Products story with you. Neal Grillo’s story starts back when he was in college studying molecular biology and chemistry. His mom wanted to make soaps, lotions, candles, etc. but she had no idea where to start. With his background, it was easy for him to help her by figuring out the formulations and so it began 16 years ago.

He started out small at first by doing a few candles as gifts here and there but then he decided to get serious and grow his business. They have a wide array of wonderfully fragrant scents and men don’t worry; they have not forgotten you. They have many masculine scents to spruce up even the most rugged man cave or bachelor pad. Another really terrific thing about Neal’s company that he runs with his wife Heather is that they believe in paying it forward.

Neal & Heather Grillo and Staff

With every purchase, you get to choose a cause that you would like to see donated to, and at the end of each month a name is randomly selected, and they donate 10% of all sales to that cause. Pretty awesome, right?! He believes “The world is a better place when we all help each other.” I could not agree with you more, Neal!

We should all be so giving. So go out and show them some love and light the way locally! You can purchase Nekkid Products at Greene Street Market Store, Elitaire, Envy, Tate Farms Gift Shop, Downtown Southern Sass (Hartselle), Belle Chevre Gift Shop (Elkmont), Boutique Nouveau (Athens) Orr Decor & More (Winchester, TN)  You can also order online from Nekkid Products by clicking the link below and tell them you heard about them on Grub & Love!!

    I just clicked over to their site. The Almond Biscotti lip balm sounds pretty tasty.
    They need to find a location in Decatur to carry their products. (Just sayin’.)

    I’m gong to have to order some of these. My wife loves scented candles (I don’t mind them myself). She will love the Sandalwood and Lavender.
