As you wander the aisles of Central Market York, you can’t miss the stand of Our Sons and Daughters, with brightly colored soaps, bath bombs, and shiny glass jars with beautiful labels. If you’re searching for products to treat yourself (or someone else), and preferring to shop local, then you’ve arrived at the right stand.
Based in York, Our Sons and Daughters LLC, owned by Philip and Cresha Drayden, has been providing high quality bath and body products since October 2019. What started as Cresha experimenting with different soaps and oils to relieve her children’s skin condition eczema, has grown into her own business of helping others feel their best.
When it comes to keeping things local, Our Sons and Daughters recognizes that customers are adapting to the “have it made here” concept, opting to treat their skin issues with products absent of harmful colorings and fragrances.
With 10% of people experiencing eczema symptoms, the products from Our Sons and Daughters have demonstrated providing relief of itchy, dry, irritating skin with nourishing body butters and soaps.
The shelves of their stand at Central Market York are filled with more than just soaps and body products. Our Sons and Daughters also offers hand-poured soy candles, premium aromatic incense, sage for burning, as well as crystals and other holistic products.
Cresha is also working to help others live their best life with the newly developed Giver of Light LLC. As a Reiki Master and Life Coach, Cresha and her staff provide energy healing techniques to reduce stress and anxiety. Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to clients’ bodies, improving the flow and balance of their energy to support healing. Developed in the 1900’s in Japan, reiki is now used all over the world, including hospitals and hospices, to complement other forms of treatments. Giver of Light LLC consultations aid clients in improving their relationships and daily lives by identifying obstacles and creating strategies for overcoming them.
“We believe that York is on the rise and we seek to improve our diverse community through offering alternative health and wellness services,” states Cresha. “We are humbled at the opportunity to interact with the visitors and locals,” adds Philip. “We intend to develop long lasting business relationships within the Downtown York area.”
