Mothering with Mindfulness Sponsor - Nayla Natural Care

Today I would like to introduce you to one of my April sponsors Gwen Leron of Nayla Natural Care.

Tell us a little about how Nayla Natural Care came to be.

At one point when my children were smaller than they are now, we found ourselves buying the natural and organic products we needed from multiple places. Online, neighborhood stores, stores across the city. It became tiresome, so I decided I wanted to start my own store carrying all of the wonderful things we use so they would be available in one spot and hopefully make things easier for parents in the same shoes as we were.

Being a mama, a business owner and a wife, among other titles I am sure, how do you find balance?

Balance for me comes in waves. It never lasts long, and truthfully, I don’t think that there will ever be balance. I just go with the flow and make sure that no matter what, my family comes first.

If you could share one bit of advice about starting up your own business what would it be?

Ask questions! If you know someone else who has done what you want to do, seek their advice. Do your research before you jump in and after you have started up, the rewards will come, be patient.

What product in the Nayla Natural Care line up is your favourite right now?

Wow, there are so many to choose from! Everything in the store was carefully chosen for a specific reason, so they are all favourites. What I am using the most right now though is my Crazy Rumors Lip Balms. My kids love them, I love them and my customers love them. I carry 16 yummy flavours such as orange creamsicle, black cherry and plum peppermint. With flavours like those, they are easy to love.

You have a free day, no plans, what do you do with it?

I’d say sleep in, but it has been so long, I don’t know if my body remembers how to do that J I’d definitely use it for family time.

Would you like to share an eco friendly tip with us?

Going green can be a daunting task for someone just starting out. I would say to start slow, read as much as you can and understand what is in the products you are buying. If you have questions, don’t be afraid to ask the store you are buying from. If they know their products, they will have the answers you need.

Thanks so much for taking the time to share a little bit about yourself with us. It was wonderful getting to know you a little better Gwen.
