Episode: 23 See Jane Design A Beauty Brand with Hope Gillerman
I’ve met many entrepreneurs who are really drawn into the wellness beauty space. It’s an exciting, lucrative, and highly competitive niche. That’s why I’m so excited to introduce today’s guest, founder of H. Gillerman Organics, Hope Gillerman.
H. Gillerman Organics is a line of aromatherapy essential oils. Hope curated this line after an ongoing battle with sciatica. After aromatherapy helped her tremendously, she developed her own line and launched in 2008. Hope has since been featured in the US, UK, and Japanese versions of Boat magazine, Dr. Oz The Good Life, The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Town & Country, Cosmopolitan, and Organic Spa.
