If 2020 haven’t done nothing at all, it has definitely made us become more conscious and mindful of our health and building up our immune system. So far this year in Maryland we’ve had a total of 239,362 confirmed coronavirus cases, and 5,039 confirmed deaths. During this Pandemic i’ve learned that Apple Cider Vinegar is good for the body, Elderberry, and also Herbal Teas! Since like March, I’ve included them all in my daily ritual. I’m always seeking for new ways to support black business, and to also spread awareness about health and wellness for my community.
I came across this black family business, Amalu’s Gardens who makes the most refreshing juices I’ve ever tasted.. like, foreal y’all ! Amalu means “Something Valuable”, and Gardens represent “Growth”. Amalu’s Garden have crafted a family brand based around health and education. They promote a holistic lifestyle by sharing information through their wellness community and was kind enough to answer a few questions of my own.
Raven Paris: How was the idea of Amalu’s Garden developed?
Amalu’s Garden: We have always had a passion for health and wellness and started incorporating juices into our daily regimen. From there, our friends and family began asking us to provide the juicing service for them and then the idea was born to make this available to everyone. Once the pandemic started, our community reached out in search of other healthy options to keep their immune systems strong during this vulnerable time. We then begin creating holistic options such as the herbal teas and elderberry syrup to support our community.

I highly suggest during this scary time period in our lives living amongst the Coronavirus that we take more precautions into what we are putting into our bodies, that we wear our masks and that we really focus on building up our immune system! Definitely make sure you follow them and make sure you follow me!
