The Woman

Renae Thomas-James immigrated to Alberta, Canada from Jamaica in May of 2013.

Shortly after her move to Canada she noticed her hair and skin had a negative reaction to the Canadian cold, dry climate.
Her hair was dry, breaking and refused to grow. Her skin was scaly, itchy dry and became lifeless.

After trying various products on the market, none of which worked for her, she decided to go back to her Jamaican roots. Back to when her grand and great grandparents used the vegetation around them to make their own hair care and skincare products as well as natural medicine.

With this aged knowledge gained from family practices, she developed her own hair and skincare products. To her surprise, within a short time she saw a huge difference in the growth of her hair and glow on her skin.

Soon after friends and family started requesting to purchase her products and this is when she decided to turn her craft into a business.

Fast forward to today, she now makes natural hair care and skin care products under the brand Take Me Away Essentials as of 2016 and since then has seen a significant improvement not only in the health of her hair and skin, but the health of her customer’s hair and skin as well.

She is a huge believer in:
Nature gives you the ingredients you need, so use them wisely and make nature proud!
