Meet Jodi Boswell of Olani Naturals

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jodi Boswell.

Jodi discovered the wonderful healing properties of tropical nut oils when researching natural remedies for her own mysterious skin rash. Not knowing what her rash was from, she put together a skin cream of bioactive ingredients with a broad spectrum of beneficial properties (anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, regenerative, calming, restorative, and protective).

After sharing extra with friends and family, Jodi found herself creating more and more in her kitchen for others. After much research, experimenting and consults with natural practitioners, she created Olani Naturals.

Olani Naturals’ ingredients include raw, unrefined nut oils from the South Pacific, manuka honey from New Zealand and black seed oil from Arabia. Each ingredient is carefully chosen for its scientific understanding and natural ability to bring balance to the skin biome and relief for inflamed joints and sore muscles.

Jodi sells at fairs and markets, from her website, and at local health food stores. She continues to make each product herself in her own home kitchen in Santa Cruz.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
This has been our first year in business. I had to learn how to build a website, how to make my own labels, how to source the freshest ingredients and how to market. My biggest struggle has been learning to anticipate how much will sell at markets and making sure I have enough ingredients in stock for website orders.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Olani Naturals – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Our formulations are bio-active, providing nutrition to skin cells. Our products only contain pure plant oils and manuka honey. We do not add preservatives, fragrances, chemicals or anything extra.

What sets us apart are our ingredients. Each ingredient has been chosen based on scientific understanding of how the enzymes in the oils and honey work in harmony with the skin.

We are best known for our anti-inflammatory muscle, and joint rub with frankincense and myrrh, our manuka honey salve with black seed oil, and restorative body butters with macadamia and kukui.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
We are creating an all-natural mineral sunscreen, as well as a face cream made with mango seed butter and hybiscus. These two products will be available this Spring.
