EWI of Columbus December Chapter Meeting
Jingle & Mingle Holiday Event
Join us for a truly unique experience as we celebrate the holiday season together! We’ll be jingling and mingling the night away with a fun, interactive tour of the Glenn Avenue Soap Company – a local company started in Grandview. We’ll learn about how two mechanical engineers became soapmaking entrepreneurs, an introduction to the craft of soapmaking and the art of aromatherapy. You’ll be engaging your sense of smell, touch and taste!
You will learn about essential oils and will formulate your own special essential oil blend. Then you'll use the blend to scent a bottle of Glenn Avenue’s genuine saponified oil foaming hand soap, which you can take home as a memento of the event ($9 value).
Plus, in the spirit of holiday giving as well as in the spirit of taking care of ourselves first, there will be free chair massages!
Each year the December event is always one for the books — don’t miss the fun, games & celebration.

Business Tour: Glenn Avenue Soap Company
We were born 2009 in Dr. Sandra Metzler’s kitchen on Glenn Avenue in Grandview Heights, Ohio. As a mother of three and a Biomedical Engineer, she understood and grew concerned about the risks associated with artificial and harmful ingredients in her family’s skincare. Unable to find good products made from safe ingredients, Dr. Metzler put her knowledge of chemistry, biology and aromatherapy to work and, after hours of research and experimentation, produced her first batch of soap. It was an immediate hit with family and friends.
For several years, soapmaking was a hobby. Phil and Sandra sold at occasional farmers markets or craft shows. They called it Glenn Avenue Soap after the wonderful street they lived on. They perfected saponified oil foaming soap, which is more difficult to make than bar soaps, but which have a more vibrant fragrance and silky lather. They expanded their product offering with lotions, skin care products, and more.
Phil (also a mechanical engineer) started in 2013 to build their hobby into a real business. Teaching himself Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, Phil created new branding, took product photos, started a website, built a soaplab in their living room (with compressed air and 240VAC!) and went out and started selling!
