She is now an advocate of the beneﬁts of herbs and easy wellness. She currently specializes in manufacturing holistic self care products that promote relaxation, and balance in our busy lives. Thanks to the Tempe Manufacturers Grant, she was able to expand her product line, invest in cutting-edge equipment, and scale her production capabilities for local business partnerships.
