ShineBrighter Sunnday is a monthly audio series featuring and celebrating those using their work to brightly shine their light while inspiring others to do the same.
Hosted by Tahnia Belle, this month's podcast features Ayo Ogun-McCants, Creator & Mixtress of Soultanicals, a growing natural self care & beauty line.
Listen to this candid interview where Ayo discusses:
• how to build a seamless brand
• getting over business setbacks while setting new goals
• techniques for work-life balance as a mompreneur
A regular part of Ayo’s teenage self-care regimen was spent creating and dabbling in do-it-yourself, natural beauty care preparations. It was one of her first examples that implementing a self-care routine was one of the best things one can do for their spirit. With that in mind, Ayo Ogun has embraced a natural lifestyle with tender loving care for over 10 years. It wasn't until maintaining a job, a household, five children and her husband, that her self-care routine met the ultimate challenge. After her children were born, her pampering rituals took back stage. There were days when “Me-time” became a figment of her imagination. These challenges and her need to fulfill her spirit became the seeds for Soultanicals.
Today, Ayo Ogun-McCants takes great pride in the way she blends modern day originality with timeless, healing traditions. She prides herself on creating high-quality botanical ingredients that combines her passion for self-love by producing goodies that Mama Earth would be proud of- toxin-free, cruelty-free, vegan, and free from harmful preservatives, fragrances and dyes. Her style is a reflection of her love for different cultures, traditions and the natural richness of Mother Earth that truly inspires her- and her African perspective of culture, spirit, and lifestyle and design because it is her heritage and who she is.
