Life & Work with Keturah Holmes

Today we’d like to introduce you to Keturah Holmes.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I went through this point in my life that inspired me to want to do a better job of taking care of my body so I started paying closer attention to what ingredients were in everything I used daily. I noticed a lot of the body care products I was using contained a lot of chemicals and alcohol. I like many other people had eczema, skin discoloration, and acne. I decided that this is something I can fix so I began to read books and research what ingredients would best fit my issues. I then started making products for myself, friends, and, family and trust me it was pretty hard at first but eventually I found my lane. Shortly after that, people began to ask me to be a vendor at their events and the business being to blossom. I started this business from a place of wanting to provide quality products made by hand with love and simple natural ingredients that can be found at your local organic market to heal and help keep skin healthy.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
If you only knew how many times I gave up when a recipe did not come out as I planned. The first time I got my Body Butter to come out with the texture I was looking for, I danced and called everyone I knew. Also, learning to navigate running a business and understand all the moving parts was a little bit of a struggle but I was blessed to have people strategically place in my life to assist me on this journey. So I make it my business to share what I have learned with anyone who asks. I have not figured everything out but I am always open to learn a better way to go about running my business.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
We make handmade Body Butter, Body Scrubs, and Body oil. We specialize in Body Butter and that is what we are known for. I am most proud of our exfoliating scrub wash which is an exfoliating scrub that lathers up into a soap as you exfoliate. What sets us apart is that we are willing to meet with customers and make custom products or pair them with the product depending on the customer’s wants or need.

What would you say have been one of the most important lessons you’ve learned?
I have learned so many lessons during this journey. The most important lesson I learned is trust yourself everyone can’t see your vision for your business so you need to be in the driver’s seat. It is ok to use your resources and reach out for help but ultimately you need to trust yourself.
