Bay Area businesses are adapting with the times, offering innovative products and experiences in and out of brick-and-mortar shops.
With a mission to help the modern woman deal with stressors, co-founders Jewel Zimmer and Taylor Lamb created Juna, the plant-powered wellness brand that offers sustainable formulas to optimize mind, body, mood and sleep. “Operating in an industry known to hype one savior ingredient after the next, our goal has always been to simplify relief and separate the trendy ingredients from the truly transformational,” says Zimmer. The Juna collection features products such as the Balance Drops, which are best taken every morning for a daily dose of mood support; Nightcap Sleep Drops, which help optimize your sleep cycle; and Ease, which is formulated to help release tension. Zimmer and Lamb plan to expand their line to ease even more problems women face with ingredients that are effective and therapeutic. “We hope we can introduce Juna to more women and help spread awareness around the power of plants,” says Lamb.
