Tell us about your business.

My love of bath and body products started as a hobby, giving gifts to family and friends. After a few years, I decided to try to sell my products. It was slow at first, but as I decided on a specific niche, my sales took off. I research every ingredient before adding it to my products. I offer body products you can feel safe using. My dream is to become a nationally recognized brand, providing the highest quality body products.

Tell us about your workspace, shop, or studio.

My workspace is my kitchen. I am in the kitchen preparing healthy meals for my family and creating quality bath and body products for my customers.

What inspires you?

My three children inspire me to make the best quality products for our bodies.

What makes your business stand out?

My customers are the most important part of my business and I strive to provide the best customer service I possibly can. Word of mouth has been my best form of advertisement. I love what I do and you can feel that when you use my products.

What advice would you give an aspiring creative entrepreneur?

To never give up, follow your dreams, provide stellar customer service and never skimp on quality.

What does American Made mean to you?

American Made means putting your heart and soul into your product and making it with love and care with your own two hands.
