Carole Stevens started her home-based business out of necessity. Stevens has such a severe intolerance to chemicals that even a perfume-wearing person passing by can cause her skin to become irritated.
"Perfume in the air [at work] was affecting me so badly I had to quit my job," she says. A desperate Internet search for a salve yielded a recipe for a chemical-free lotion Stevens could make at her South Side home. Thus Honey's Homemade Stuff was born.
Stevens has expanded her line, named after her grandmother, to include soaps, lip balm, mosquito repellent and more. All products are plant-based and chemical-free, and are made from all-natural ingredients. For the complete product line, contact Stevens at 230-1555 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
