The Story behind the Brand

"The Graceful Rabbit" is not just a brand; it's a tribute to the resilience of Appalachian heritage, the spirit of entrepreneurship passed down through generations, and the enduring grace that colors every aspect of my journey.

"Inspired by my West Virginia roots and the profound influence of two extraordinary women in my life—my grandmother and aunt—I embarked on a journey that would shape my identity and entrepreneurial spirit.

Growing up amidst the splendor of the Appalachian mountains, I was immersed in the wonders of nature—the crisp mountain air, the richness of the soil, the art of gardening, the wisdom of herbal remedies, the sweet smell of mint growing in the garden and the strength of community. These early experiences continue to influence my choice of fragrances in my products today, each scent a nod to the memories of my childhood.

My summers were spent in Ohio at my grandmother's side, observing with fascination as she crafted handmade goods to supplement the family income. The excitement of entrepreneurship took root in me during those young years when I asked if I could sell some of her handmade crafts. With her approval, I ventured door-to-door, (this was during the 1970's) making sales and at the same time I didn't realize it but I was sowing the seeds of my future as a business owner. 

Just as important was the time spent with my aunt, a woman of remarkable beauty, both inside and out. Her grace, kindness, and unwavering care for others left an incredible mark on my heart. Lessons of kindness, generosity, and selflessness were imparted by both my grandmother and aunt, shaping the person I am today.

As an adult I dived into the world of aesthetics, working in day spas and gaining insights into skincare, I felt a calling to create something uniquely mine. This passion and knowledge lead me to formulate and create my own bath and body line of products.

The name "The Graceful Rabbit" pays tribute to the two women who ignited the spark of entrepreneurship within me. Rabbits, reminiscent of my grandmother's gardens, evoke a sense of nostalgia and connection to the earth. "Graceful" mirrors the beauty, kindness and care by my aunt. Together, they symbolize my roots, the wisdom of my upbringing, the grace that infuses every product in my line and the kindness I want to bring forth into the world.
