Love Balungi started in 2019 in my dining room. Balungi meaning beautiful or well in Luganda (where my parents are from). I was looking for purpose. I had just lost my mother 3 months prior and wanted to do something that would make her proud. Since I was a little girl, I was always into beauty. I would watch my mom in the mirror put on her lip glosses, or lipstick and be in awe. I love the smell of the coco butters or shea butters that she would she rub into her hand or mine. Love Balungi is an ode to the women that continuously inspires me. Love Balungi is for everyone. We all deserve to Love Beautifully and feel beautiful. With all my love. Love, Balungi.
