J+C Offers Quality, Hand-Crafted Products Made Locally


Owner Chris Entzel started her home-based business about a year ago, creating her own line of reasonably priced skin and hair care products.​

Chris Entzel began making skin and hair care products at the end of 2014 by making breastmilk lotion as a way to treat her families' sensitive skin issues. Eventually, she began looking for ways to make an alternative lotion that would be equally effective and discovered all of the beneficial qualities of coconut oil, cocoa butter, argon oil, vitamin E oil, grapeseed oil, and raw shea butter. After increasing interest and the support of her family and friends, she saw it not only as a way to help her family and get away from chemically based products, but as a financial opportunity and introduced the J+C product line in the spring of 2015.

"I want everyone to have a chance to try the products; they are reasonably priced, locally made, and most of them are all natural," said Entzel. "So far I have had a lot of repeat customers and it's nice that people like the line and are always coming back."

She added that she has recently started ordering ingredients in bulk in order to keep up with the demand and has more than 50 essential oils and fragrance oils. Her product line includes the popular and versatile bedtime cream, body wash, hand wash, hair treatment oils, toilet spray, and currently has cocoa-mint and French vanilla lip balms with goji berry coming soon. Summer time products have also been very successful including an aloe vera-based after sun soother, regular mosquito repellant oil, and all-natural mosquito repellant oil which is safe for kids three and under. Entzel is continually adding new fragrances and products and is planning on adding body scrubs, cooling foot sprays, and incorporating mango butter into her line.

Gift bags are available and are great for birthdays, Mother's Day, or just to say thanks; Entzel recently filled an order of 'thank you' gift bags for nurses after a friend had her baby.

"It's a lot of fun and it's addictive like crocheting!" she laughed. "I also really like that I have an opportunity to give."

J+C has donated products to gift baskets for the Richland County fire department, police department, and sheriff's department, has donated products to the Cattleman's Ball, and did fundraising for Mariah Selensky to help with medical expenses.

J+C products are for sale at the Bean Bag in the Sidney Health Center; 2 oz. bedtime creams will be available at Reynolds Market beginning March 3rd and free samples of the bedtime cream will be available there on March 4th at 4:00pm. Customers can contact Entzel at, the Eastern Montana Direct Seller and Small Business page, or by calling or texting 406-480-3319. Free delivery is available in and around the Sidney area and shipping is available.

J+C has recently been approved by the Made in Montana Group and all of the 21 ratings on Facebook have been five out of five stars. Entzel will be at a craft bazaar at the Moose Lodge in Sidney on Saturday, March 5.

Entzel lives in Sidney with her husband and three children; she would like to thank her friends, family, customers, and Elk River printing for all of their support in helping her home-based business become a success.
