Throughout most of my life, fear and heartbreak trained me to keep my friendships shallow—safe, so I thought. I chose to hide my problems, never ask for help, and wear a plastic smile instead of letting people in. In 2020, God used my husband (my dearest friend) to teach me about friendship and the importance of Christian fellowship. He helped me understand friendship as a gift from Christ, a gift offered to me, and one that I can offer to others as an act of worship! These truths led me to develop bonds that have brought tremendous health and delight to my life!
These revelations on friendship lead to me meeting with a group of ladies I call the Haitian Manmi club. Four of us gather once a month for fellowship, encouragement, delicious food, and laughter—lots of laughter! One Saturday, in between laughs and bites of loaded baked potato and French toast, these ladies started teaching me about the benefits of essential oils and sharing DIY cleaning recipes made with vinegar, essential oils, and baking soda.
This conversation piqued my interest in formulating natural products, but to this day, I have yet to create those natural cleaning products! Instead, my research and intrigue gave me a desire to make soap. When I shared this aspiration with BaBo (my hubby), he generously invested in me by sending me to soap school where I learned the basics of my craft. Through my training and studies into skin and black hair care, I uncovered a passion for beauty formulations.
Before long, I began sharing my concoctions with close friends and family members. These dear people gave built my confidence with encouragement and honest feedback, they helped me improve my formulations, and develop Naturally à Nous! My husband has been my greatest supporter; he has invested his time, money, and energy into making this dream a reality!
Here at Naturally à Nous, we create all of our skin and black natural hair care products for the glory of God and the delight of our loved ones! As you purchase and enjoy these hair and body care products, please accept them as an extension of the gift of friendship I’ve received. I'm grateful to share the fruits of our answered prayers with you all!
