The beginning of Ntuka
Having had my last child who was still a baby, I began to have strong feelings of not wanting to ever leave her in the care of someone else to return to my previous 9 to 5 work. This prompted a somewhat desperate search for an alternative.
In my search for ideas and encouragement, I looked for inspiring stories, told by those that had been in a similar situation. There were so many examples, particularly of women who had gone on to successfully pursue alternative careers that gave them the freedom to be the mothers that they yearned to be.
Armed with lots of encouraging stories, the search gained vigour.
I had already developed an obsession for aromatherapy and essential oils by this time. An instant attraction that would become part of my everyday life. By chance or perhaps destiny, I came across an article about these precious oils.
The connection deepened instantly. Months of research, experimenting and observing followed. With time, I derailed my fear of everything new and unknown and went on to build Ntuka.
Like any small independent business, I do hope to grow, learn and develop Ntuka as a sustainable and conscious business that holds a special place in your daily rituals and hearts.
