|The new, temporary sign|
Soulistic Natural and Spiritual Healing, a one-stop shop for herbal remedies and gifts, opened in the troubled storefront at 1742 EPA.
Paper went up over the windows a few weeks after the second Soap incarnation closed, and owner Delphine Dos Santos opened last week with the ENKI name still painted above the store. She said she was waiting for some help from the East Passyunk BID to make changes to the facade. The sign went up Saturday.
Delphine, who’s French and was a professional dancer, said she can create customized homeopathic remedies for various ailments. From her Facebook page (no website yet):
Our mission is to provide well-being, healing, personal growth and spiritual reawakening through natural remedies, affordable inspirational gifts, individual and group spiritual healing sessions and workshops .
Also on sale were earrings, geodes and other items, plus a couple shelves of new age literature. Also, fittingly, some natural, handmade soaps.
Interesting side note, Delphine said she also owns a capoeira studio.
The location also housed a used CD store a few years before ENKI opened and before that, it was a cigar shop. Hopefully, they have more luck than the previous tenants.
