- About Irie Organix -
In Jamaican Patois, Irie is more than a word. Irie is state of deep happiness and tranquility. Irie stems from a dialect, Patois, that is beget from the deep wounds of slavery and colonization. In humanity's darkest hours, Jamaican people resisted with not only violence, but with joy--something that no one could take away. To me, Irie encapsulates our strength as a people. Despite everything, we rise. "E'very ting Irie" is a common phrase in Jamaica meaning that despite everything, all will be okay and we choose happiness. I think everyone could use a little bit more Irie in their lives, so get some with Irie Organix.
About the Founder

She is passionate about helping people live healthier lives holistically and organically. Plans to pursue a medical degree in the future to positively impact the health of others. She has witnessed the benefits of natural living in her own life by becoming vegan, making her own beauty products, and having sisterlocks (a form of dreadlocks) for 11 years. Amazed by what happens when we turn away from chemicals, she created Irie Organix to help other people capture the magic of nature.
