Meet Andrea, The Essential Homemaker
Updated: Oct 4
In the years leading up to 2014, I began noticing my skin was incredibly sensitive. I was experiencing issues with tightness, stinging, redness, and painful cystic acne. It didn’t take long for me to decide enough was enough!
After beginning my research, I found many toxins were commonly found in household and skincare products I was using- explaining the symptoms I was showing. After finding alternative products that seemed great on the surface, free from toxic ingredients, I couldn’t help but notice how terribly overpriced they were! Thus, sparking the start of The Essential Homemaker.
Using my degrees in chemistry, biology, and human nutrition functional medicine, I began creating my own products. This was the only way I felt safe putting things on my skin, into my body, and on my hair because I knew I could regulate every single ingredient being placed into each product.
After a while, my friends at church began to notice my skin looked better than ever! I realized I couldn’t keep these products a secret, I HAD to share them. What started as a small Etsy shop to keep me occupied in my spare time, has morphed into my own website and a fulltime business that I love with my heart and soul.
Everything Essential Homemaker is related to prayer. I mean everything. This ministry belongs Jesus, and I am so thankful for the talent he has given me. Before I create and formulate a product, I have to get in touch with the Giver of the gift to ensure I am doing what He wants me to do with it. This talent will not be buried, rather I will do with it all that I can to protect, preserve, and grow it for the kingdom.
I believe what sets me apart from other natural product businesses is that I use only the highest quality ingredients I can get my hands on. I use raw, unrefined, organic options, while still having strict non-toxic standards and remaining affordable. I check purity reports on the
ingredients I use so that I provide truly non-toxic products. It is my absolute desire to provide the best products I possibly can that fit any budget.
In the little spare time I have, I enjoy spending time with my son and his dog. I like watching old TV shows or simply going to bed early to catch up on my sleep. Rarely do I find spare time because I enjoy creating product so much! Knowing how much I help people and make their lives better through the products I make is so incredible. It’s hard to describe and explain, but it’s almost like my soul is giddy.
That’s me, Andrea Turner, The Essential Homemaker. Thank you for stopping in and learning more about myself, my business, and my product. I hope you have a blessed day!
