Meet Cecelia Ross of Ms. Cece’s Creations

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cecelia Ross.

Hi Cecelia, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I started making products more than 10 years ago. I found that I would get itchy skin and rashes from using various lotions, detergents, and deodorants. I learned later that it was because of all the chemicals those products contained.

It started with me making personal care products, then cleaning products, and lastly graduated to making pain oil for myself and others around me.

Ms. Cece’s Creations (the business) was developed when I would share products with my close friends and family, that I didn’t charge them for, I would just make them and give them away (that’s the Social Worker in me, lol). However, the demand grew and I found myself spending more time and money purchasing supplies.

Today, Ms. Cece’s Creations offers the following natural handmade products: Muscle Pain Oil, Nerve Pain Oil, Arthritis Pain Oil, Scented Body Butter & Oil, Scented Room Spray, and a plethora of digital products and resources.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
While my business develops, one of my biggest struggles has been learning all of the background workings of running a business, for example, tracking inventory. This has taught me the importance of having effective systems in place.

We’ve been impressed with Ms. Cece’s Creations, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Ms. Cece’s Creations specializes in handmade personal care products and resources to help people use less harmful chemicals in their homes. We are most known for our line of pain oils that help to address mild to moderate arthritis, muscle and nerve pains.

We also provide gift baskets for all occasions, with bulk ordering available.

What sort of changes are you expecting over the next 5-10 years?
Over the next 5-10 years, I see the industry continuing to shift to using more natural products. It is my hope that people become as conscious about their cleaning and personal care products as they are about their food.
