Products range from soaps, lotion bars, oils and more. Gifts, Wedding and baby shower favors. I’m so pleased the owner, Shanika Hewitt, asked me to feature her business. She was gracious enough to send me two of her best selling soaps, Lemongrass Swirl and Oatmeal Milk & Honey. I must say both soaps left my skin feeling moisturized!!! The scent is fantastic. The lemon scent of the Lemongrass was not overbearing and the Oatmeal Milk & Honey scent is amazing definitely my favorite…very therapeutic!!!!

Q. Can you tell us a little about your company (name, what you offer, when established, etc)?
A. My business officially started at the beginning of this year. Before that I was just selling items to family and friends. I offer natural bath and body products such as soaps, lip balms, and body butters. I’ve just started making hair items but right now they are still in the testing phase. 🙂
Q. What was your inspiration behind starting the brand and for each design?
A. Two of my five children have eczema so that’s what originally started me on my quest for natural products. Once I started making them myself, I was in love!! I love being able to know exactly what goes in my products. The designs for my soap usually start off as a way to meet a need….ex oatmeal, milk and honey soap for dry skin, peppermint soap to keep mosquitoes away.
Q. What distinguishes Naturally Jazzy Creations from other brands?
A. As I said most of my products are to meet a customer’s need. My soaps are highly scented and that’s what a lot of my customers love about them.
