The Entrepreneur

I was 22, stressed, and emotionally drained when I discovered a benign tumor in my breast. Worried, I turned to my mother for help, and she gave me several herbs and oils to heal myself.


I began to take stock of my life, and incorporate herbal remedies into my lifestyle to support my physical, mental, and spiritual well being.


With the support of my mother and ancestors, I created Omekwa Organics to do what other health & beauty brands were not; make physical and emotional transformation an effortless, luxurious staple for this generation and the next. 

Because we deserve to Live Abundantly
