In 2014, I began researching natural remedies to help relieve my husband's and son’s eczema. Slathering themselves in steroid creams filled with toxic petrochemicals and synthetics was not an option. I thought about all the times my grandmother would make homemade remedies. I immersed myself in books about African herbalism, ancient Egyptian aromatherapy, Southern folk herbalism, and modern-day herbalism. I was surprised to find out that a lot of the remedies my grandmother used to prepare for minor illnesses, which we jokingly called, ‘old wives remedies,’ were found amongst the textbooks I read. I was slack-jaw. My grandmother never put a name to anything she whipped up. She always described these concoctions by their contents, physical features, and where she stored them. Eureka! “So that’s what that stuff was called that she gave us.” It all made sense now. These were herbal remedies passed down from generation to generation from our homeland on the continent of Africa. My ancestors never wrote them down. They were just passed down from memory. I was excited to recognize the decoctions, tinctures, and salves she made. Especially since they cured our ailments! If it worked for all of those generations down to me, then I was going to take up the torch. Armed with my newfound information and vigor, I ventured to make my own products. Therefore, I’d have peace of mind knowing exactly what ingredients are in each product and that they will be effective. Guided by these time-honored African formulations and centuries-old ingredients like Shea butter, nutrient-rich oils and essential oils, I handcrafted my first body butter. Not only did my two favorite guys have success with the body butter for their eczema, we all used it as a daily body moisturizer. The positive changes in our skin were visible to the naked eye. Our skin took on a healthy glow and soft touch. This was great. I had to find other test subjects. I tested the body butter on family and friends. They were good sports about it and no one was harmed during testing. Actually, they all liked the product and the results they saw in their skin. I credit the success of the body butter to my forefathers, who knew how to live in harmony with the earth and its ingredients. I sourced the purest, organic and/or wild-harvested, ingredients I could find. I researched vendors, read every page on their website, requested samples and called them with additional questions. I vetted them thoroughly before I partner with them. Riding high on the response of the body butter, I meticulously tested recipes for body wash, body scrubs, body oils, and bath salts. I knew this journey was going to be a labor of love. I was determined to create a skincare line that people would be passionate about. It was out of this passion and desire that Violet Botanical Skincare was born. I invite you to experience the magic and awaken your nirvana.

When was the last time you felt sexy? I confess not so long ago I lost my sexy. My name is Nadja Renise and I became a mother at the age of 20 while still in college. Nearly 7 years later I gave birth again and made the life changing decision to cut off my natural hair (read about that tragic experience here). The stress of being a mother of 2 caused me to lose myself and forget who I was as a woman. My looks had gone down the drain and my hair was falling out. I was embarrassed and ashamed I'd let it get this far. Passion faded from my romantic relationship and my self-esteem suffered. I felt lost, unattractive and overwhelmed. I wanted to break every mirror I passed and hide from everyone including myself. FEMMENOIRE is how I got my sexy back. Creating beauty products became an outlet, a light in the darkness. While mixing exotic ingredients and devouring the alluring aromas I got butterflies daydreaming about when I felt sexy, flirty and was being romanced by my guy. My passion evolved to a collection of beauty products created from the desire to awaken the feminine power inside. When I use FEMMENOIRE products I feel damn good! I exude beauty, confidence and seduction. I share this with you so you can feel it too. You deserve to feel as good as you look, from the boardroom to the bedroom. Unlike other uninspiring yet healthy beauty products this is different. Simple and effective vegan hair care products, for your naturally curly hair, kissed by luxury that empower you to embrace your feminine essence. Seriously, can it get any better? In a space where “natural” is overused and beauty has become artificial I vow to honor you and your health. This means handpicking exotic plant-derived ingredients and intentionally avoiding things that damage your hair & body. This means creating pure products so you can feel good about what you put on your body. All products are cruelty free, vegan, PETA certified and free from sulfates, parabens, mineral oil, paraffin (petroleum) silicones, DEA, glutens, and phthalates. I invite you to try any of my products and if your hair isn't satisfied you can return it for a full refund, I promise. Love is best when shared with others. I spread love by reserving a portion of our profits to contribute to women’s empowerment charities. We also donate clothes, blankets, and beauty products to local women’s shelters and organizations and sponsor women so they can provide for their families. Some organizations we support include Women For Women and Equality Now. Connecting with you in deep meaningful ways beyond styling your curls is what I do. Making a positive impact in the lives of others and giving back to women in need is what we do, together. xo, Nadja Renise
