“Being a housewife all through my life, I had a largely content and peaceful life. Growing up in a traditional family, we were always oriented towards natural remedies as our means and ways for self-care and beauty. Naturotherapy was our go-to and we always made our own concoctions for our self-care needs.
Having lived through my kids and grandkids, I think, I fell into a crossroad in my life when my son casually mentioned that I do something worthwhile with my time. The question propelled me towards an identity crisis and I meditated on the statement – what is it I want to do with my life? Being a senior citizen in her mid-60s, I wondered constantly if it was possible to start over!
And even if I did start over, what did I want to do? It took me several days of intense meditation and introspection at the end of which I found that I was naturally drawn to my basics – Naturotherapy and Nature. I started making small batches of body scrubs and face masks completely from the ingredients which were available in the kitchen.
All the years of subconscious learning worked it’s magic and I found that I was making concoctions out of nothing but pure memory. I then proceeded to gift them to some close friends and family members of mine wherein the products were received extremely well and the feedback broke me into an immense joy. What followed then, seems like a perfect fit in the grand scheme of things, like finding the missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle I set out to launch my own homegrown brand which focused on bringing out premier quality self-care products which were completely handmade, without preservatives and completely affordable for everyone!
It’s a common notion that self-care comes at an expensive price and many refrain from even making an enquiry about it so I wanted to bust that myth! With that single-minded motive, I launched my product line of body scrubs, face masks and other essentials complete with a unique gum polish. My brand launch happened on the 17th of December 2020, and we just completed our one month anniversary this Jan! Coupled with good quality packaging, my products have gained momentum and are garnering amazing reviews from everyone.
People often let many factors like age and time be a deterrent to go after their dreams but I can honestly say that, once you have a clear intention in your mind, the universe will make your dreams come true. Half of my profits go into NGOs where I support a number of causes and it is one of the most enriching experiences of my life.
It’s funny how life works in mysterious ways seeing how my journey had traversed from being a housewife to a business entrepreneur in my prime sixties but the journey has finally begun and I am here to work through every other plan, it has for me.”
