Tell us how you started your business?

I have natural hair and about five years ago, the products I was using stopped being effective on my hair. So, I began whipping hair products up in my kitchen. I went deeper into the tunnel of self-ingenuity and began studying how to integrate herbs into my hair and skin care routine. From that point onward, I was creating my own products for my skin, hair and space.

I have a close and dear friend, Scarlett, that whenever she didn’t feel well, she’d hit me up and ask me to make her something to feel better. One day, Scarlett asked me to collaborate with her on a project. She wanted me to create rose waters for her online brand. So, I obliged. And at that moment, I realized this is not only what I want to do, but what I am destined to do. I cannot describe it any other way than all of this is a part of me. Like, feeling in alignment with what I am meant to do.

What problems are you solving with your product/business?

Mo’ Betta Botanicals serves the melanated community with products to help them develop a self-care regimen to enjoy the experience of themselves.

What makes you different from the competition?

Mo’ Betta Botanicals is different because we take self care seriously. That is the first step in developing self love for yourself. Self care is self preservation which is self love.

Share a quote you live by. It can be yours or something else that inspires you!

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”

Audre Lorde
