My name is Karen D. Bridges-Draper, Founder/Owner and CEO of Honey, Scrubs n’ Stuff, LLC. The name Honey, Scrubs n' Stuff derives from (Honey Bunny), a nickname my dad gave me at birth. I began my journey in 2008 creating gift baskets but found myself very discontent in doing. After deep prayers and having vivid dreams, I was led to follow God’s plan so I began researching and studying alternative ways of taking care of my skin. My inspiration and passion for my craft comes from my mom's boldness in being creative with cutting up her own clothing back in 1971, dying the material bright colors, mixing perfumes, and burning incense of sandalwood and patchouli. My mom was involved in all kinds of entrepreneurial endeavors when I was a teen. At 18 years old, I recall my mom driving me to a local town to visit a friend who worked from his family’s lab as a perfumer. My mom would sit and talk to him about fragrances for hours. I found no interest whatsoever, I thought it was quite boring to watch tubes of vodka and extracts just flow through clear pipes. Looking back, I believe my mom was introducing me to the "Beauty of Skincare". 36 years later, I am her legacy. Fast forwarding to today, I handmake skincare products using fresh food ingredients, essential oils, raw manuka honey, seeds, peels, sugars, sea salts, absolutes, natural flavors, extracts, pure fragrance, organic oils and butters which are paraben, sulfate and phthalate-free. I am supported by my family and continuously inspired to live out my mom’s creativity and unfinished dreams. With Love, Honey Bunny
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
Eat honey, my son, for it is good; honey from the comb is sweet to your taste.
