Naturalista

ABOUT

Fellow Naturalistas,

My name is Mary. I am an Entrepreneur, a Naturalista born and bred in Kenya, a sister, a daughter and most important of all a mother. I was always advised that the price tag of any product determined how effective it was. These are standards of beauty I strongly disagree with. I have discovered how to take care of my skin and hair and look good using natural ingredients in my kitchen.

WHAT

It all began when I was pregnant and with rough skin due to the hormones. I had to look for alternative remedies because my frugal self could not understand spending $50 for 0.2oz vile just to get better. Aside from changing to an All Natural Organic PlantBased Lifestyle, I researched and experimented with natural organic plant based products until I finally found something that worked for me. When my son was born I noticed he also had sensitive patchy itchy skin. This led me back to researching until I found something that worked for him too. With positive results and feedback, family and friends sought advice and homemade products from me on all matters skin.

HOW

With my hair, I did my first Big Chop in 2010 and went crazy on products. However that left me empty broke and even further lost. I did not like the texture, the smell or even how my hair felt after. So I got into YouTube and learned that a lot of great women make their own simple products like myself. I liked to understand why I am doing anything. Now that I make my own products and I know exactly what and why I use what I use, I feel really great and fulfilled. In using herbs, butters, essential oils  in their most natural form possible, I heal and make the world a beautiful place
