When Jen and I first met Jared Gettinger, we were seriously inspired by his story. Jared had a job manufacturing toxic industrial detergents until he realized one day that he wanted to use his skills to inspire and uplift. For us, Jared's story is one of the reasons we started BRIKA. We love to hear about people leveraging their passions and strengths to craft their own beautiful lives and sharing the results of those efforts with others. Jared's line of natural and organic home and body products, Love Nature NYC, was created with the love for his native city and holistic wellness in mind. When you use the products in his line, you can see, feel, and smell the care that went into them. Jared was one of the first makers to join us, so he holds a very special place in our hearts. We can't wait to share more about his story and most importantly, for you to experience his pure, beautifully scented collection of handcrafted candles, soaps and bodycare products including exclusive products made just for BRIKA(!), when we launch in a few short weeks. I've personally had my nose stuck in Love Nature NYC's Spruce candle since we received the sample, so we just had to choose it for our first SNEAK-PEEK SALE. Believe me, this candle will keep you feeling cozy inside when outside is anything but. Buy it now, below!
