Often people complained that free samples of new product that were sent out as members rewards came in a 1’x1’ bag or smaller.  They complained that this small amount did not give them the opportunity to actually experience the effects of the aroma therapy properly.

Other complaints dealt with packaging, some test products were not clearly labeled, so if you liked it, unless you kept up with your packing slip, you had no idea of the product name so that you could re-order. Another complaint was the customer’s inability to choose the sample they wished to try. Most companies use either less popular brands or new, unknown brands as free samples. The customer doesn’t get to choose their Free Herbal Incense Sample; it is selected by the company. This allows the seller to control the test market, push new product, and alleviate unpopular back stock, without taking a total loss on product. Another person complained that their Free Herbal Potpourri Sample was not herbal potpourri at all, but a batch of 1” baggies for re-packaging that read “free sample” on the bag. Others received coupons for products.
