I amÂ Tasha Hussey of Tasha Hussey Body. I’m an eco-conscious mom who grew up in Jamaica with vegan, kosher parents.
My parents used a lot of herbal remedies to treat common illnesses. I bought my first book on natural remedies at 18 years old and have been using extracts, teas, and essential oils since then.
I have a degree in fashion design, my past collections include natural fiber and cultural fabric clothing for men and women. I currently make a collection of vintage repurposed jewelry, along with my extensive collection of vegan skincare.
My skincare features organic oils, extracts, botanicals, and essential oils. There are products for everyday personal care for the entire family.
What inspires you?
I am inspired mostly by nature, history, and food.
Also the needs of my family have been a big motivator for me. My skincare line was born out of my youngest son having severe eczema.
What is your mantra?
Never put off for tomorrow what you can do today.
What product(s) are you most excited to offer via Scottâ€™s Marketplace? Â
I am excited to offer my loofah soaps. They are exfoliating and give you an extra-clean feeling with no residue left on the skin.
They also make your skin very soft and can tighten problem areas by promoting good circulation.
Aside from your business, what are your hobbies?
My hobbies are cooking, gardening, and taking trips with my family.
What is your greatest accomplishment so far?
I would have to say my children. Being a mom is the most challenging and rewarding thing that has ever happened to me. I doubt anything will ever top that.
Whatâ€™s on the horizon next for your store?
Themed subscription boxes!
I have over 150 products in my collection and these themed boxes with accessories will be a fun and cost effective way to buy products for yourself, family, and friends.
