A man without knowledge of himself and his heritage is like a tree without roots
Welcome, I want to take this moment and introduce myself. I am Kimberly, the founder and creator behind Branche Basu Boutique, LLC. Sit back while I take you on a journey to understand who we are, why we are here, and our mission.
In Nov 2016, Branche Basu Boutique was launched. We use skin loving oils, butters, herbs, clays, fragrances, and essential oils in our products. Our line consists of luxurious bath and body care and home fragrances. Our candles are made with 100% soy. When I started the business, my goal has been to keep the integrity of our products and brand by using natural and sustainable ingredients; avoiding anything that collides with our vision and your skin.
We are cancer awareness advocates. Each year I host a Bone Marrow Drive at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona during the month of March for Multiple Myeloma Awareness. Cancer made me wake and realize what I was putting in my body and on my skin wasn't good. Now we educate others on toxins and living healthy. I am also proud to be part of A 2nd Act where survivors share their cancer journey and 2nd Acts after a cancer diagnosis.
To hear more about why I started the boutique? Please watch the video below to hear my “Why Story” it will take you on a journey to Japan, our unique name, and my cancer journey.
As our business grow, we will continue introducing skin loving products to you, self-care, and wellness. We love making wonderful products and we hope you will love them too! After using our products, you will no longer need to go to the spa because we bring the spa to you.
Where do I begin? I thought it would be a great opportunity for our customers to put a face with the name Branche Basu Boutique.
In this interview you will learn why I am so passionate about making the products in the line, what triggered the desire to launch the business, where did the name come from, what we are doing for Multiple Myeloma Awareness, and a little bit about me the founder, Kimberly Branche.
Sit back and enjoy the video and leave your comments or questions below.
Did you know that Multiple myeloma is the second most common blood cancer? That many patients have never heard of it until they are told they have the disease. That was my story in March 2014. Multiple Myeloma is a personal journey of mine and why we exist today. Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the bone marrow plasma cells. Our goal is to educate and push awareness so that early detection occurs and less families are affected by this disease. I've learned to be my own advocate and educate myself with the disease. I've had multiple myeloma since 2014 and currently maintaining the disease. My ultimate goal is for it to leave my body. With life changes I am able to move forward with the disease for a productive and healthy life. Each year I host a Bone Marrow Donor Drive to push awareness and gain potential donors to help save lives. To date over 180 military members have signed up to be potential donors. Of the 180 only 2 were prefect matches! As you can see there is a need.
The International Myeloma Foundation, Be The Match, Salute to Life, and many others work hard to spread awareness of myeloma and blood cancer. It does not end on March 31 for Multiple myeloma Awareness month. The journey continues.
