Renee Mornay, the passionate founder of Abundantly Aromatic grew up in the cultural hotbed of New Orleans, Louisiana. She took the lively energy of her hometown with her when she moved to Dallas, Texas and began experimenting with creating her own bath and beauty products.
Renee loves working with her hands to create beautiful, artisan products and takes pride in being a local, African-American business owner. When Renee isn't in her workshop, she can be found dancing the night away in either Dallas or her beloved hometown.
Established 2009, Renee started Abundantly Aromatic as a side project to teach her sons about entrepreneurship. When the housing market crashed, Renee left her job as a real estate agent and devoted her life to making high-quality, all-natural products at an affordable price. All of our products are handmade by Renee and her son at our workshop on the border of Mesquite and Dallas. Renee believes everyone should have access to bath and beauty products that are natural, gentle, and local.
Everything is handmade locally with all-natural ingredients. We use 100% Grade A, Organic Shea Butter in all of our soaps, body scrubs, and, of course, our Shea Butter lotions. Our products are ideal for those with dry, sensitive skin.
We use what is called ‘The Cold Process’ to make our soaps. We put all of our fats - Shea Butter, coconut oil, olive oil, and palm oil - into what is called a ‘Granny’s Kettle.’ After those are thoroughly mixed together with a device akin to a hand mixer called a ‘Pot Whipper,’ caustic soda is added and stirred in. The soap at this stage has the consistency of pancake batter and any fragrance or extra ingredients are added in. Then the soap is poured into a large mold and sits for a few days. After the soap has set, the sides of the mold can be taken off and the large block of soap is cut into logs. Ideally, the soap will dry in logs for a day and then cut into individual soap pieces to be wrapped. The entire process takes about a week.
Every product is handmade at our workshop on the border of Mesquite and Dallas. That’s just 15 minutes away from the Dallas Farmers Market!
Keith Mitchell is Renee Mornay’s oldest son and the co-producer of all Abundantly Aromatic products. In his years working with his mom, he has learned how to make the high-quality products that our customers expect from Abundantly Aromatic. In his free time he enjoys socializing with friends and listening to live music.
Dani Pearsall cultivated her passion for locally made products from a young age, supported by her mother who served as the President of the Coppell Farmers Market for ten years. Dani met Renee Mornay in 2008 at the Coppell Farmers Market when she was only 15 and joined the Abundantly Aromatic Team in 2013. She is proud to support a local business that is environmentally conscious and only uses natural ingredients in all of their products. When she’s not working, Dani enjoys hiking with her two dogs.
