We always love to feature our partners! Meet a smart and delightful woman with her own business, Mihika Patel. She started her business Moments With Mihika after doing what many only dream about, leaving the corporate world of 15 years behind to pursue what she loves. Her passion is health and wellness, and her products – all natural and with five ingredients or less – reflect her values.
I recently met Mihika at an American Business Women’s Association (ABWA) meeting and knew that her business would be a perfect tie in with ours. Knowing how stressful planning a wedding is, it is important to take time for self-care — or as Mihika says, “I also help my clients live mindfully and with intention so they can be present for the truly important moments.”
This is something everyone can benefit from!
Our own Sarah Kline was introduced to Mihika when she visited our store and very impressed with her philosophy and dedication to a truly healthy lifestyle. Mihika has now made up some generous (and super pretty!) gift bags that we are delighted to gift to our brides! If you are a current or past bride and interested, please stop in, mention this blog, and receive one for free.
There is a section on her website dedicated to brides and her bridesmaids and mothers gift boxes are ideal. This is a very thoughtful gift idea and a great way to support a local small businesswoman – be sure to give a look!
We are proud to do a feature on Mihika and her business.
Why are you passionate about self care and wellness?
I have been passionate with natural self-care and wellness solutions since I was in my teens. Part of it resulted from being economical with my limited budget and part of it had to do with some early success using natural products – like turmeric and honey face masks. It only snowballed from there as I experimented with many different products (even making my own body butters at one point). Some were more successful than others and as my needs changed, I found certain products stood the test of time.
How can your products be useful to brides-to-be?
I’ve always been a true proponent of making lasting changes in my life. In my experience, most products with chemicals or other toxins are only effective while you’re using them and as soon as you stop using them, they stop working. Additionally, many chemicals and toxins have negative side effects. So I’ve created these products to help women about to embark on this beautiful next step in life, to start it off on a healthy note. Not only are the products good for them, they can also help enhance their beauty from the inside out.
What makes your products stand out?
My products are all-natural, cruelty-free, vegan, gluten-free, and non-toxic. The best part is they are made with 5 ingredients or less – no preservatives or fillers! Only the best ingredients!
Why should brides be excited to use your products?
My products are intended to not only be good for them, but also help them easily incorporate self-care into their daily routines. These are the products that not only their brides, but their bridesmaids and friends will all want!
What is your go-to product?
My detoxifying face mask is hands-down my favorite because it works so effectively at giving my face a reset and refresh when my face feels dull and I’m starting to breakout. This particularly happens when I’m about to menstruate and I love that I have an alternative solution that won’t throw my hormones off-balance but gives me incredible, glowing skin.
Do you have any advice for soon-to-be brides?
Ha! I have a lot to say on this topic as my husband and I are celebrating our 18th anniversary this year! It I’ll keep it short – Don’t forget to take some time to yourself and soak in all the memories. Also, maintain a united front with your future spouse. This is the first true test of many to come for you as a couple.
