1. Tell us a little about Juna and your mission:

Juna offers the most effective plant-powered solutions to optimize digestion, mood, and sleep. 

The ‘do it all’ generation of women are experiencing sensory and schedule overload like never before.

All of Juna’s formulas are 100% proprietary and developed by our team of female doctors ,herbalists, chemists and founder/chef/sommelier. 

3. What inspired you to start Juna and what did your journey look like leading up to it? 

Women everywhere are juggling more than ever before and it’s causing increased levels of stress, gut issues, anxiety, tiredness, overwhelm, and mood imbalance. As female founders and mothers we experienced this first hand and true necessity led us to the creation of Juna because we ultimately were looking for relief but didn’t want to turn to prescriptions and pharmaceuticals. 

4. What advice do you have for other women who may want to start a business in herbal wellness

Our advice would be to make sure your product A. solves a clear problem/need, B. truly is effective and can enhance someone’s life, C. can fit into your customer’s routine, and D. that your brand resonates with a specific target demographic. This is the formula we follow when developing into new products and new product categories. When it comes to branding and brand voice, we always aim to be authentic and honest. Since we are both within Juna’s target demographic, it makes it a bit easier to always step back and ask ourselves if it resonates with us on an emotional level – did we laugh, learn, or connect with it? And ultimately, is it something we would want to share with our friends?  

5. What are the best-selling products?
