Our Story

Happiness and health are not just sought after states of mind. They are necessary. They are mandatory. They are imperative. They are ESSENTIAL!

At Essentially Meka we are committed to the achievement of one simple goal: to pamper the public. 

Essentially, Meka was established in 2008 and is owned and operated by me, Temeka. I am the founder and creative force behind Essentially Meka where we offer a wide range of hand-made, natural skin-care products. Crafting everything from handmade candles, and soap, to natural body butters, sugar & salt scrubs, lip balms and more. Using a combination of high quality ingredients, and careful preparation to create products with a lovely handcrafted touch. 

My love of family, nature, fragrance, essential oils, and everything handmade, keeps me focused on creating products my customers fall instantly in love with. Everyone recognizes and appreciates the difference made when the best natural ingredients are used in products crafted by hand. 

For me, there's nothing like a bath or shower with a luxurious bar of soap, or sitting back relaxing and reading a good book with a candle burning to keep me company.  I love sharing my passion with others, knowing that they enjoy using what I create, as much as I enjoyed creating it.
