How did you come to the idea to open herbal shop here in Wat Pho Sauana?
I came as a tourist about 14 years ago, I lived in Haad Rin and noticed the nature here and the parties and I decided to stay. After living, working and participating at parties and night life scene for a while I felt pain and my body was tired, so I came to Wat Pho Sauna to heal and ease my pain. I came here everyday, and there was no shop selling herbal products like soups and gloves for scrubbing. There was no hot tea and I like to have hot tea when I am going to sauna. It gave me the idea of open a shop by myself.
There are 2 sections here, one for the sauna products and the second for tea.
What products are available at the sauna herbal products shop?
At the herbal shop I have all you need when going to a Sauna. Body and face gloves for scrubbing dead skin cells, various kinds of soups, essential oil, incense, shampoo, conditioner, even have an oil that makes the hair grow back. Some of the products I make by myself and some of it I buy.
What kinds of tea are available at the tea shop?
The herbal tea shop is new. I bring many of these tea herbs from north Thailand, and blend it here. There are 10 different kinds of oolong tea, mostly familiar from China, available only at this shop in Koh Phangan. Tea flowers open in boiling water to a big flower inside the cup. Jasmine tea that has a very good smell and more.
