ENSPIRE spoke with founder Kerensa Ward to learn more about how she started K’ Essential Blends and her love for skincare:
When did you decide to start this company, and when did you become involved in entrepreneurship?
K’ Essential Blends is a lifestyle brand that is dedicated to promoting optimum mental health and mindful living. Our essential oil blends are 100% natural and cruelty-free. Our brand was birthed in the midst of the pandemic, in 2020, through life and wellness coaching. K’ Essential Blends is dedicated to encouraging many to upgrade their self-care routines and regimens to combat mental health issues. Becoming the CEO and founder of K’ Essential Blends is where my entrepreneurship journey began. It is an amazing growing and learning experience where I have the front row seat of empowering, encouraging, and equipping others to thrive and become the best version of themselves. It’s so important that we take care of ourselves so that we can better serve others. K’ Essential blends is an affordable and sustainable brand. A brand designed for every skin type and every household. We encourage you to curate an amazing aromatherapy experience to feel and smell good.
Were you always passionate about skincare? What does your skincare routine look like, and what is some advice you have for glowing skin?
Skincare is something that I’ve always been passionate about. I have super sensitive skin, and it’s so important that I apply 100% natural products to my skin. My skincare routine has always been simple. I’ve always been a “less is more type of person.” I usually begin my routine by exfoliating my skin with homemade oatmeal or aloe vera scrub, followed by “Gracefull Glow hydrating face oil” and any natural-based SPF. Two – three times per week, I would usually apply a “Bamboo face mask” for brightening blemishes and pigmentation.
My advice for glowing skin :
-Be patient and gentle with your skin.
-Increase your water intake because it’s an internal/external journey.
-Find a great natural base cleanser that works with your skin.
-Keep you skin hydrated with “Gracefull Glow hydrating face oil.”
-Never leave home without SPF.
