Mom-preneur Sylvia Emuwa and her husband Augie, founders of Dinobi, were driven to create a gentle enough product to combat their family of six reoccurring skin irritations. With no response from the detergent companies to determine the ingredients used, they decided to take matters into their own hands by creating a safe detergent that’s greener, cleaner, and gentle enough for people to use every day.
Your dreams, wants, and desires are special and unique to you. They are a grounded embodiment of what success and happiness will look and feel like through your eyes and your eyes only. As a Rooted Woman, not everyone will understand your drive, and some may doubt or try to sway the firm assurance you have within yourself and your capabilities. While we cannot control how they perceive your essence, you can control who you let into your evolved mind and space. Protect your dreams as you do your body, mind, and soul. Shield it from the negative energy that comes in all forms. And believe that all will manifest in divine timing.
