Mood Indigo’s Open House and Holiday Sale to benefit Ada Jenkins Center
Longtime Davidson resident Réa Wright is happy to share that she will move her popular Open House and Studio Sale outdoors due to pandemic restrictions.
Wright is a psychotherapist, soapmaker (or soap witch as some would say) and owner of Mood Indigo Living.
Through the years, Wright has created a plant-based, eco-friendly bath and body-care product line that promotes joyful, vibrant, healthy and holistic, mind-body living. She has drawn on her years of experience as a psychotherapist to create an empowering, witty, and eco-friendly brand with a focus on real self-care, mind-body health, and social good.
Originally from Mumbai, India, Wright is the mother of two young adults and Maisie the dog, and currently lives and works in Davidson with her husband, Doug.
“Soap making began for me as a hobby and quickly evolved into an imperative,” says Wright. “My daughter, Madeleine (now a senior in college), developed harmful allergies and asthma when she was four-years old, which resulted in a comprehensive reassessment of the cleaning and personal care products we used. Bath and body care products that were free of artificial fragrances and additives were hard to find, expensive ,and used harmful synthetics, even when described as “natural”. So I set out to make my own in my home-based studio on Virginia Road.”
She handcrafts small batches of all-natural, plant-based, aromatherapy, bath and body care products with the love, support, and help of an amazing group of women. You may have visited her booth at the Davidson Farmer’s Market on occasion!
Wright strongly believes in giving back to the community and plans to share a portion of the profits of her Annual Sale to the Ada Jenkins Center.
“Helping people help themselves is a passion of mine,” said Wright, “and I realize that every time I connect deeply with someone in my office, I connect with a small part of myself. Soap making, believe it or not, is just another piece of that puzzle. Making soap is my creative endeavor and also a way to provide my family and others with a healthy, healing, junk-free alternative. Mood Indigo has given me the opportunity to engage with an incredible community of people who also support my vision of healing from the inside, out!”
Due to pandemic restrictions, Wright is hosting her annual Holiday Open House OUTDOORS on Saturday, November 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in her studio on Virginia Road in Davidson. And this year, she is happy to celebrate Diwali, the Indian festival of lights, as it also falls on November 14. So, plan to munch on her yummy masala popcorn as you shop for handcrafted gifts that give all year long!
This annual event is a great way to catch up with friends and neighbors, while also shopping for handcrafted, local gifts for gifts for everyone on your list, It’s a festive way for everyone to reconnect during a very busy time of year. She hopes you’ll stop by to say hello, nibble on her famous masala popcorn, and shop in peace and tranquility!
