JACARA was only a thought by Ramon, owner and co-creator OR better known as our mad scientist! He has been a practicing Acupuncturist/Herbalist and Massage Therapist for 17 years and always was intrigued by the idea of starting a company that focused on some type of health benefits. About three and a half years ago a patient came into Ramon’s office with a terrible skin condition. Ramon had really just begun to learn about Shea Butter and its benefits. He decided it would be great for this particular patient.
It was then that he called his daughter, Jasmine, Certified Aromatherapist, co-creator and owner. Jasmine was currently in the thick of her studies, studying Essential Oil Therapy and Ramon was incredibly interested in the healing properties of the oils. The first time he asked for a recommendation was for the patient that had the skin condition. At that time, a blend of essential oils was made and Ramon added it to the Shea Butter.
Gaia’s Secret was born! The patient used it, loved it and recommended it. Patients began requesting this particular “balm”, and it was then that Ramon and Jasmine realized they had something great on their hands. After much experimentation and research, failed products and successful products Cathy, Health and Fitness Educator, and co-creator and owner was excitedly asked to join in their journey…..
Gaia’s Secret, our signature Shea Butter and JACARA was not a thought anymore, but a dream coming to fruition.
The rest is history!
Commitment to Our Earth
The JACARA Team has always had a strong commitment to our Earth and how much our current actions affect the future. For many years on both a personal and professional level, each of us have been very passionate when it comes to the three R’s – Recycle – Reduce – Reuse, conserving water and avoiding the use of any product that may have a negative affect on our environment.
