Welcome and Hello!
I am Mrs. Laura Branham, owner of Mrs. B's Homemade Creations LLC!
I am a daughter, aunt, wife, mother, bonus mother, and grandmother with a full-time career where I am blessed to serve others for nearly two decades.
In November 2020, I took a leap of faith to launch my part time home based business, Mrs. B’s Homemade Creations LLC after a couple of nudges through one of my daughters, a cousin, and honestly, hesitation.
They told me that I needed to quit playing around and start selling my products because it will benefit more people.
I found out quickly that they were right!
I've been making homemade products throughout the years off and on for friends and family since at least 2011.
In 2020, when the Ohio Stay At Home Order was about to go in effect and while my husband was recovering from his fourth major back surgery, I started to research more about natural alternatives for my household to reduce our household expenses.
Given that it was still in the peak cold/flu/RSV season during that time, I was purposeful in searching for how to make natural alternatives to keep my household healthy and find ways to boost our immune systems too.
That journey was the beginnings of pursuing the goal for us all to know what is in our products that we are putting in, on, or around our bodies!
I, personally, started the transition more consistently away from chemical-based products in 2015 after we experienced three miscarriages while trying to conceive.
All my medical tests were coming back showing that I was still healthy and should be able to have children.
I was even eating cleaner too.
My OB/Gyn would keep saying there shouldn't be anything preventing me from conceiving and my husband's previous wellness tests came back normal.
I began to think that if my and my husband's medical tests showed were coming back normal then there must be some external factors that were causing my previous early pregnancy losses.
I recognized during times leading to my pregnancy losses I was cleaning our home with strong chemicals - which we were inhaling the fumes of, and some of which was absorbing into my skin.
The skin is the largest organ of our bodies and a pass through for chemicals to reach our blood streams.
We also used to always burn candles that didn't have safer ingredients or wicks.
We sprayed commercial air fresheners, used fragrance oil products, and we had cats but used whatever kitty litter was on sale back then -- all chemical laden.
In 2016, we were blessed with our miracle and rainbow baby -- our promised child, a boy.
My immediate family including our grandsons had different skin concerns that I wanted to cater to when I started making my homemade moisturizing hand and body soap in 2020, including the following diagnoses: sensitive skin, eczema, yeast infection in the skin, dry skin, acne prone skin and tinea versicolor.
Mrs. B's Homemade Creations LLC's handmade, homemade products with natural (organic when possible) ingredients have helped my family and friends so, I am sharing to help others!
I am a proponent of being good stewards of our bodies and want to help others help themselves for their holistic health and wellness with all that God has blessed me to learn about and create.
