A few weeks ago, I went to Fig Store in Lekki. I daresay it is the first dedicated health store in Lagos. All the items have been picked out to support a natural and healthy lifestyle.
Their offerings range from cosmetics to vitamins. Grains to sweeteners and much more.
I got talking to the owner of the store, Bimbo, and asked her why she had decided to open the store. Apparently, her husband (and by extension the entire family) had to undergo a lifestyle change due to some medical issues. That was when she discovered how difficult it was to buy certain foods locally. This is something I fully understand as I have friends with autistic children who have to buy E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G from candy to milk abroad. Fig Store is helping to bring these foods closer to those who need them locally.
I was also glad to hear that they weren’t stopping there. They have ambitious plans to expand and add even more items to the store.
One of the things that I like about the store is that they offer to whip your shea butter free of charge there. So you can buy your Shea butter, oils and essential oils and have it all whipped and packed up before you leave the store. Free of Charge. Sweet deal, abi? They also mix black soap for you with camwood and more.
One of the items I have my eye on is a diffuser which I will use for aromatherapy at home. It is my intention to go back soon to pick it up.
Follow them on twitter here. They are located at 20, Fola Osibo Street, Lekki Phase 1.
Here are a few more pictures of the store.
