Today is a shop talk with the lovely Annya White-Brown from NaturalAnnie Essentials. We fell in love with her island vibe on Instagram and had to have her on the show. Annie creates amazing skin care and home products from her home. She tells us about her journey as a biz owner, how shows and wholesale have helped her grow her business and why connecting with others is so important. We know you will love this conversation as much as we did!

About Annya:

Born and raised on the beautiful island of Jamaica, Annya (Annie) is no stranger to the nourishing, healing power of oils and herbs. She has always been a creative soul, with an eye for all things bright ‘n’ bold (check out her gorgeous packaging). She also loves plants and a huge glass of wine (Merlot please!).

Annie’s first daughter Tiffany was born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, and Annie turned to natural remedies to help Tiffany’s skin, as prescribed medication did not work. After trying a variety of natural butters, essential oils, and other natural oils, we finally found the remedy to her daughter’s skin issues. Essential oils and herbs are some of the most ancient and powerful remedies available, so Annie started to think about how they could be utilized in skin and hair care. Annie’s passion and knowledge grew, and in 2014 she decided to channel them into developing her unique brand. And NaturalAnnie Essentials burst into life!

Today, NaturalAnnie Essentials is your island-inspired, one-stop shop for uniquely scented, handmade soy candles and bath & body products. Woman-owned and based in Bridgeport, Connecticut, we aim to make you look, smell, and feel good!
