In a crowded marketplace that generates more than $3.04B annually, Deshaye Ballard is creating her own seat at the table.
The Jonesboro, Louisiana native spent years researching the healing properties of essential oils and herbs. Developing a vast knowledge of energy healing modalities through the Etheric Touch program and attaining her certification as a professional Yoni Steam Practitioner she made the leap to entrepreneur.
THE JOURNEY TO CREATING YEMOJA'S CHILD
The now Georgia based entrepreneur turns skills into profit with Yemoja's Child Body & Soul Essentials or Yemoja’s Child for short. “Yemoja as a name is quite historic” Ballard explains. “Yemoja is also known as Yemaya, who is the primordial mother and owner of the sea; a healer, nurturer, and the protector of feminine mysteries in the Yoruba pantheon”.
THIS IS HOW I TURN MY PASSION INTO PROFIT
Enter the creative workspace of Yeomja’s Child and you will quickly notice that it is overflowing with soap crafting tools. The atmosphere filled with the aroma of her blended floral concepts (Tea blends that is). Finished products are placed collectively on the shelves of the many tall iron crates, stacked high along the walls, awaiting shipment.
Bestsellers include Body butter, Herbal bath salt, Botanical oils, Floral Facial Toner, Yoni care products, non-toxic oil-based fragrances and custom gift boxes. All products are plant based. “My main goal for Yemoja Deshaye states, is to create products that help provide sacred self-care for the Body & Soul”.
