Though that R.L. Linden location is mostly a lab and production area for the company's all-natural, chemical-free products, it's open for retail sales "by appointment or by chance," Till says. "Right now, if door or window is open or people see us in there, they are welcome to knock on the door," she adds with a laugh. They are hoping to eventually expand with more permanent business hours.
R.L. Linden has continued to receive well-deserved buzz from the beauty industry. The company's Thousand Petal Beautifying Mist made its second appearance on the red carpet this year, used by green makeup artist Katey Denno on actress Natasha Lyonne for this year's Emmys. Seasonal products have been selling out and customers are returning to the brand's site in droves to see what's new.
The pair have also continued to see immense success with Witch & Bitch, R.L. Linden's project with another local eco-conscious proprietor, Shae Whitney of DRAM Apothecary. In what Till describes as "badass Girl Scouts for grown women," Witch & Bitch has offered foraging, tea blending and many other skills of the plant-based medicine and folk- knowledge variety.
The seasonal editions have sold out almost immediately, and the business women are now working on offering more individualized classes throughout the year in Denver, along with the in-depth seasonal programs in the mountains near DRAM's Silver Plume base. R.L. Linden's partners have also been traveling out-of-state to teach their herbal knowledge.
They see no signs of things slowing down any time soon. "It's a very good problem to have, and we are so grateful that the stuff we're so passionate about people are interested in," says Till.
