156: Side Hustle Spotlight: How this Nurse Started Her Natural Skincare Business on The Side (Aliyah Jenkins of Body Treats)
Aliyah Jenkins is the Owner and Founder of Body Treats, LLC. Body Treats is an all-natural, organic, chemical and toxin-free skincare line that specializes in pastry inspired (scented) products. Body Treats uses only raw, organic butter, organic oils, and certified therapeutic essential oils.
Working in the healthcare field for eight years as a Nurse Practitioner and Registered Nurse, Aliyah noticed a “Revolving Door” cycle with most of her patients. They continued to come back to the hospital with the same health problems that they initially left with. Aliyah decided that it was time for a different approach and adopted a Holistic lifestyle herself which includes a plant-based diet, physical and mental exercise and the use of herbs as medicine.
While adopting this Holistic Lifestyle, Aliyah was in search of all-natural skincare products that particularly smelled like baked goods and was unsuccessful in finding it, so she decided to make it for herself, right in her kitchen. Through the advice of her sister, she decided to make her personal skincare products into a business.
