Caregiver Punitha Tjia and son Michael from ausomesuds_sg

CAREcottage is an initiative by CaringSG to support special needs caregivers who have started enterprises to support their dependants and themselves.

This article was contributed by Punitha Tjia, a caregiver to Michael, her autistic son.


Hello, It brings me great joy to introduce myself and our business to you. I am Punitha Tjia, the founder of ausomesuds_sg. At ausomesuds_sg, we specialize in crafting essential oil-infused shower steamers. Our mission goes beyond just creating products; it’s about engaging my autistic son functionally during his free time and allowing him to earn his own pocket money.

Our journey commenced in early 2022 when I began crafting shower steamers, with my son Michael eagerly joining in the process. Encouraged by his enthusiasm, I created step-by-step visuals and guided him through the creation of these essential oil-infused shower steamers. The positive feedback from friends and colleagues prompted us to establish an online business platform for Michael to sell his creations. Thus, ausomesuds_sg was born.

We are dedicated to continually evolving and adapting to meet Michael’s needs, particularly focusing on his sensory tactile and eye-hand coordination skills. Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We are excited about our journey ahead and the opportunity to share our creations with you.

Participating in CaringSG’s CAREcottage Bazaar at SAFRA Punggol was my first bazaar experience with CaringSG, and I learned a great deal, especially about booth presentation and effectively conveying information about my products.

I also felt overwhelmed by CaringSG’s support and efforts to help make my booth more attractive. Collaborating with like-minded booth holders was undoubtedly the highlight, offering me invaluable support and motivation. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to CaringSG for this opportunity, as I am genuinely thankful for the knowledge and experience gained from the CAREcottage Bazaar.
