A woman who promotes small business and empowering women has taken it a step further and opened a store promoting health.

Mary Ekene, of Orange, opened her new establishment on Monday at 1011 10th Street, Suite 201-B in Orange after generating a huge success operating out of her home.

“I want to help others live healthy,” Ekene, mother of two, said.

It started with a liver cleansing product which has expanded to include beauty items such as bath bombs, lip gloss and soap.

“I am expecting some African Soap from Nigeria soon,” Ekene said on opening day.

Friends and family stopped by to show support and check out the newest items.

Ekene is also founder of Black Women Unite, a non-profit organization, empowering women to support one another to become stronger individuals. She held a well-attended conference in March.

Livol herbal & cleansing store is open from 11:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Mon. – Sat. and closed on Sunday.
