Meet Me
Founder + Creator
Hi, my name is Tawanda!
I am a wife, mother of 4.. well 5 if your count my big fur baby lol,  and a breast cancer warrior!
Zinnia Body Essentials was originally founded in 2016 as a creative work of art and hobby. My very first time making soap was for my daughters wedding as wedding favors, melt and pours, everyone loved them! It was the start to my love for soap making, but when I was diagnosed with hormone positive breast cancer in 2019, it increased my passion to create awareness about clean, safe, non-carcinogenic products. Cancer helped me learn the importance of living a clean and healthy lifestyle. That is why I’ve decided to make it my purpose to share plant-based skincare with you through this brand.
Meet My Team: My daughter
This is Tyrianna. 
This is my one and only daughter. In 2022 she decided that she wanted to partner with me and help me grow our family business. She has always helped me here and there but man was I excited when she decided to go all in with me! 
She is married (my son-in-law is a talented self employed artist!), works in the medical field, loves to dance,  and has a huge passion for helping others in any avenue she can. Tyrianna brings so much value to Zinnia, does a lot of the behind the scenes work and I'm so grateful! We are such a good team because we are the same person lol, that's right, I gave birth to a mini me! We are so happy to be able to continue to grow this brand together and even more happy that you are here along for the ride.
