My Story

Founder Joshelle Toshéa

​In 2013, I became a mother to a beautiful baby girl. At that time, I was living in Atlanta for only a year, miles away from my family in Connecticut. After having my daughter, I ended up developing post partum depression. I never understood how I could feel overjoyed becoming a mother yet have extreme feelings of sadness and anxiety at the same time. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and started on my journey to being happy again. After researching natural forms of healing, I began creating natural beauty and aromatherapy products to use during my ME time. Even if I only had 15 minutes, I made sure to make my selfcare a priority. After many sessions of therapy, meditation, journaling, and using my products, I began to feel like myself again.

Years later, after alot of encouragement from family and friends, I decided to start Retro Elle in 2019 and make products to help other women on their selfcare journey! I enjoy creating natural, clean, minimal products that are safe and effective.

When it comes to selfcare, we believe in the importance of setting the mood for your routine. Our products are inspired by aromatherapy to help stimulate, calm and soothe your mental and emotional health and well-being.  


It is important for women to prioritize their selfcare. Before you were a wife, a mother, a student, entrepreneur, you were just HER. It's time to get back to HER.
