As a brand, our mission is to reconnect women with the healing powers of herbs. We believe that the age-long practice of herbalism should not completely be forgotten. For centuries, herbs have always been the allies of our mothers, midwives, and healers. As a way of giving back to the world, we want to ensure that we pass the culture of herbal healing from our generation to the next.
Hey Beauty Babes, I'm Latoya, the beauty and brains behind Beauty By Millie B. I am a seasoned professional with over 7 years of hands-on experience working with herbs.
Beauty By Millie B, based in the heart of Hewlett, New York, is an herbal beauty brand that crafts botanical intimate care essentials that addresses specific concerns that many women deal with such as, vaginal dryness and painful ingrown hairs, polycystic ovarian syndrome, chafing, hyperpigmentation, and itching.
I've always had a love of herbs instilled in me by my grandmother, and I knew that I would find a way to merge my adoration of herbs with my love of beauty one day. Everything came full circle in my 2nd year of college.
In 2012, I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and was told that I would never be able to conceive naturally. My self-esteem dwindled. I felt so unlucky and cried myself to sleep when I stopped having my monthly cycles.
I began growing hair in places no woman wants hair and I was rapidly gaining weight. Unfortunately, my countless trips to the doctor's office yielded no results, and I soon found myself on the brink of becoming depressed and helpless.
In the bid to help myself out of the gut-wrenching situation, I decided to reconnect with my roots and began my search for how to heal myself naturally. It took many years of research, trial & error, but by the spring of 2014, my ovarian cysts had completely dissolved.
And by the summer of 2017, I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby girl who was conceived 100% naturally. I proved the doctors wrong when I had my daughter, Amelia (Millie) B.
Amelia's birth is testament that PCOS is not the end of the road. Although there's not much understanding behind what causes the condition, I am proof that it can be reversed and treated without birth control.
I’ve made it one of my missions to teach women how to use the healing powers of herbs to improve the quality of life for both them and their loved ones.
So welcome to our Yoniverse!
