The Wellness Apothecary Founder Tayiana Reed

As we become more aware of how what we put on our bodies affects our health, we're gonna need more people + companies like Tayiana Reed, founder + CEO of The Wellness Apothecary.

After years as a pharmacist, Tayiana combined her skills + experience as a public health clinician, who sees the need for equitable access to healthy products, with her passion for non-toxic beauty + wellness.

The result? An affordable line of clean, natural products for holistic lifestyles by @thewellnessapothecaryrx - ranging from skin care to soy candles, all of which she compounds herself.

Tayiana always envisioned an entrepreneurial life, ever since working for her grandparents' cleaning company as a teen. Even after she graduated college and began working as a community pharmacist, she dreamed about the business she'd one day call her own.

In January 2018, she attended the @createcultivate conference, and that's when she decided to start creating an apothecary. She wants her natural wellness brand to be cost-effective & equitable to everyone. And she does that without sacrificing quality: all of her creations consist of eco-friendly, cruelty-free ingredients able to meet FDA & USDA requirements.

In addition to shopping online for her amazing products, you can find them at the @femmefataledc pop-up, where Tayiana is a new member. Her favorite thing about working with @femmefataledc is having a loving community of women who are there to consistently support & uplift each other.

Tayiana says that the work she does for her new company is very therapeutic, and gives her the opportunity to use her pharmacy skills in a creative way. And her passion reflects her personality: "I genuinely love to take care of people. It's the natural N'awlins that's deep rooted in me."
