At Ene Naturals, youth and women development is our focus as a company because women are nation builders while the youth are the future of any nation. Women make more than half of Nigeria’s population as such when women are educated, the impact goes a long way to affect the nation. This is the reason why we have always offered free natural skincare trainings to women and the youth. Last week Friday on November 29th, 2019, we partnered with the Rotary club of Lagos (Isolo & Omole Gold) to offer our services pro bono to help train some youths.
Nigeria’s youth are curious, inquisitive and have a hunger and drive to learn and do things. This enthusiasm to achieve great things was what I felt and saw in the faces and actions of the youth that I was opportune to teach last week Friday at the Rotary Club youth and leadership training program known as RYLA. It was such a fantastic experience.
My journey on that day started at the Five Cowries terminal in Ikoyi where I boarded a ferry along with the vibrant and hardworking Rotary Club members who had sacrificed everything to make this event happen. I have utmost respect for all of them. That day was indeed the first time I would be boarding a ferry in Nigeria.
The hour-long trip took us across the water to the sea school at Apapa – a leadership training camp that was packed full of knowledge-seeking youths! It was so exciting to be there.
During the training session, I taught about creating natural skincare products and how to start such business. There was live exhibition on how natural body creams are made. The interactive session was exciting as well as the future entrepreneurs threw one question after another at me. In the end, they were motivated to venture into this form of entrepreneurship.
In the future, we are hoping to partner with more organizations to conduct training sessions as well as continue with our free online tutorials targeted at the youth and women. The last online session we had produced new entrepreneurs so we are eager to do more.
Would you like to partner with us? We are happy to offer our services pro bono. We offer both physical and online sessions.
Lemon essential oil is an aromatic oil used in aromatherapy. With its invigorating and exciting scent, lemon oil is known to possess anti-viral properties as well as relieve stress as such is used in relieving anxiety. It also enhances one’s mood and has a calming effect on the body. To benefit, use lemon essential oil as a diffuser or vaporizer. You can also add a few drops on a handkerchief and inhale. To use lemon oil for deep tissue massage, add a few drops to butters or oils and massage to the skin. You feel your stress melt away. Lemon oil is also known to treat acne and dark spots and while it is not advised to apply directly to the skin, you can add it to carrier oils before applying to the skin. Pls DO NOT INJEST lemon essential oil and do remember not to use it during the day if your skin will be exposed to the sun as it can cause conditions like sunburn due to the fact that lemon oil makes the skin sensitive to ultraviolet light. When used in skincare products for day use, lemon essential oil is accompanied by sunscreen.
It serves to relief cough and nasal congestion. To benefit, add a few drops to moderate hot water and steam with your head under a towel. You can also spray it on handkerchiefs to inhale rather than buying an inhaler.
It helps as an allergy support so I usually mix it with peppermint oil and some water to spray my beddings and my rooms as it also purifies the air.
It also functions as insect repellent and you can make a spray with water to sprinkle on your body when you are outdoor.
Other functions include its ability to heal wounds, cold sores, joint pain and to freshen the breathe. To benefit, you can add eucalyptus oil to carrier oils or butters and use to massage into the skin.
To apply eucalyptus oil on the skin, add it to carrier oils rather than applying directly. AND DO NOT DRINK eucalyptus oil rather you can make a mouth wash of 1 drop of oil mixed with water and gargle to freshen your breath, treat gum disease, tooth decay and cold sores.
These days you can learn just about anything online and with increasing interests in African black soap, people want to make their own soaps at home with oils and herbs that they love. The beauty of making your own soap at home is the control you have over the ingredients like herbs, essential oils and even carrier oils. Which is why at Ene Naturals, we have African black soap base which you can use for your custom formulations.
Our African black soap base is very soft and clean. It’s soft, creamy texture makes it easy for you to work with. And you can use it to make shampoos or body wash.
TIPS ON HOW TO MAKE BLACK SOAP AT HOME
1. Even though black soap is made out of a mixture of plantain peels and cocoa buds ashes and organic butters and oil, it can be a little drying for people with dry skin or sensitive skin. So pick a carrier oil of your choice and add a little amount to the black soap base to increase its hydrating qualities. You can substitute carrier oils with butters like Shea butter, cocoa butter or mango butter for dry skin.
2. Adding herbs to the black soap base will make your soap richer so buy organic herbs of your choice.
Adding essential oils is a must 😀 because besides essential oils being full of nature’s healing goodness, they provide natural fragrances for black soaps. Please do not use more than 2 percent of your total formulation as essential oils when used in excess amount have adverse effects.
I believe this has woken your creativity so to purchase the black soap base, please visit our Store

A radiant, glowing skin is high on the request list of both men and women who are seeking for a healthy, beautiful skin. To meet this aim, nature has in its abundance, amazing Naturals oils, herbs and ingredients that can give the skin the natural glow without exposing the skin to the harmful chemicals in skin bleaching cosmetic products.
The first step to a naturally glowing skin is in our diet. Bright, colorful foods such as fruits and vegetables when consumed in good amount and combined with fibers and the necessary amount of the other classes of foods like fats and oil, carbohydrates, etc, all add up to give the skin the much needed nutrients in vitamins, minerals and oils that the skin needs to repair, replenish and rejuvenate. Thus, a balanced diet of healthy food is needed if a radiant skin is what you desire.
Secondly, you need to exfoliate the skin as often as possible. Spas are not places that should be put off or places that should be under-estimated. Our skin needs to be exfoliated to get rid of the dead cells that clog our pores for a radiant skin to be possible. At Ene Naturals, we have created some products that can be used to exfoliate, purify and firm up the skin for a brighter, youthful look.
All of these products can be purchased on the store.
A naturally radiant skin is possible with the combination of a balanced diet, the right beauty regime of exfoliating and spa visits and of course, the right kind of natural skincare products enriched with nature’s goodness.
