When I was a little girl, my mother taught me how to bake. What a fun, creative outlet and a very special bonding time for Mommy and me. As I developed my baking skills, I also learned more intricate designs. Family and friends looked forward to the special homemade baked treats that I served at every holiday gathering.Years later, after marrying and having my own children, I shared some of my Mom's recipes with my girls and we began our own baking traditions. We all agreed Nana's recipes were the best! You must be wondering, where the skincare line comes in? Well, MayaIndia was born in 2004 after several years of mixing my own “lotions and potions” to remedy my daughters’ dry, itchy skin. When I discovered several friends shared similar dry skin issues, I began blending butters and oils for them also. Soon I became the “Chief Mixologist,” and MayaIndia was born-named after the children it was created for, Sade Maya and Ayanna India. It wasn't until I began soap making that my father shared an interesting family fact. His mother, my grandmother (named India), was also a soap maker! Who would have known that my daughter, Ayanna India- who was named after Grandma India, would one day be part of the inspiration behind our family business named MayaIndia! God is always at work, preparing a path for us.
