CEO and Founder, Make Scents Natural Spa Line

Heather Kreider’s journey to creating Make Scents Natural Spa Line is far from rainbows and fairies. “Disappointment, unfulfilled dreams, and shear heartache,” are the words Heather uses to describe her story to becoming CEO/founder of Make Scents Natural Spa Line. As shocking as this may sound, knowing Heather’s background will only leave you feeling inspired.

Kreider had a certain plan for her life, but it never turned out the way she could have imagined. “We have learned that life can be a struggle at times, but what you do during those times of struggle is what counts. Our heartache came from our struggle to build a family. Together, Nathan and I went through various invasive tests only to be labeled with the diagnosis of “unexplained infertility.” All forms of infertility are difficult to endure; however, with unexplained infertility, there is no quick-fix or answer to the question of why we cannot become pregnant. As a couple, we struggled month after month with the emotional heartache and disappointment of being childless.” Heather longed for something to get her mind off reality and to use her creativeness in a positive way.

Inspiration struck Heather when she tried her friend’s homemade soaps. They decided to expand the business and make the types of products that spas and guests truly want. “With any struggle in life, you can choose to crumble and fall at the feet of adversity or choose to pull yourself up off the couch, dry your tears and make the best of the situation. In our situation, we chose to take life’s so-called lemons and make amazing body products out of them. Nathan and I had a huge door slammed shut in our face, yet another amazing door opened: Makes Scents Natural Spa Line. Now our company is our baby. Just like any proud parent loves their child, we love each other, our family and our company.”  Some of her favorite parts of her job are getting to live out her passion of creativeness, building relationships with her employees, and giving back to the community.

Outside of the office, Heather is an animal lover, owning five chickens: Chickita Banana, Yolko Ono, Amelia Egghart, Chick & Chong and Mother Clucker. “As you can imagine, they are spoiled chickens. On cold winter Pennsylvania days, they are served warm oatmeal with fresh fruit in the morning, you know, to start their day off right. They are fed only organic feed, of course, along with fresh veggies as well as organic apple cider vinegar and fresh garlic water, to keep their GI tract in tip-top shape. They love to be hand fed so much so that if I throw veggies on the ground they turn their beaks up at it and wait to be hand fed. I spend quite a bit of time with them and can even tell them all apart not only by their feathers but by all the little the noises they make.” Since Heather and her husband are such big gardeners, they were given the opportunity to have beehives on their property as well. This has increased not only the bee population in her area, but also helped their garden flourish with produce.

Respectable, passionate, and driven all describe Heather. Taking a tragedy and making it into a thriving business isn’t easy, but Heather made it happen. Make Scents Natural Spa Line is truly the Kreiders’ baby!
