About Sonoran Essentials
My name is Karen (she/her) and I am the person behind Sonoran Essentials. I create custom blended home & body fragrances, herbal remedies, skin care, and bath products using cruelty free and vegan ingredients. None of my fragrance blends are pre-mixed, and I have a lot of fun coming up with new scents! I have journals with all of my recipes, failures, and successes, and should probably record them somewhere electronically... at some point...
I grew up in Cleveland but spent most of the last decade living in downtown Phoenix- both places inspiring to me in different ways. In December of 2019, I was featured in Cleveland Magazine's "Style Makers" section. In 2020, I was selected as the award artist for the 44th annual Cleveland International Film Festival. I'm located in Phoenix once again, and so happy to be back in the magical valley of the sun.
I get a lot of support from my interns- Ripley and Jax (dogs) and Tom Petty (cat). They would have been upset if I didn't give them the credit they deserve.
