About Sonoran Essentials
My name is Karen and I am the woman behind Sonoran Essentials. I create custom blended home & body fragrances, skin care, and bath products using cruelty free and mostly vegan ingredients (one product uses humanely sourced beeswax). I also make string art and wall hangings, the wall hangings made from recycled and repurposed textiles. Everything I make is packed full of love and I’m always working on new designs and scents.
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. Such an honor!
I get a lot of support from my interns- Ripley and Jax (dogs) and Tom Petty (cat).
