We sat down with Dublin Herbalist Owner, Claire Brett and ask her questions about her brand her future and the partnership with Lifestyle Packaging.
A bit about Dublin Herbalist:
Dublin Herbalists was founded in 2012 by Claire Brett, Dip. Herb., ND. Indulging a new hobby, Herbalist and Naturopath Claire began developing recipes for a simple moisturiser made from entirely natural ingredients in her home kitchen. Her homemade cream proved so popular with family and friends that she launched Dublin Herbalists in 2013. Initially selling online and with the products being stocked in the first shop in January 2014, Dublin Herbalists’ ethos and product range has since enjoyed a dedicated and ever-increasing fanbase in Ireland and abroad.
