Roy having spent his life as a successful pharmacist owning his own businesses, decided to sell up and become a Locum. Back in 2016, he was sent to work alongside Nas in running a pharmacy in Thornton; it was during their lunch breaks there that Roy & Nas first recognized the pattern of healthy teas consumed by both customers and the other staff.
This sparked off a memory of Roy’s great grandfather Moses Bellis; a Welsh herbalist who used to forage for Nettle leaves to make a ‘cure all tea’ for his daughters . He used to tell them it was full of iron for their blood, a diuretic to get rid of their excess water and bloating and as a detoxifying herb, it would help keep their skin beautiful; but it tasted awful so had to be sweetened with two teaspoons of honey.
This started them both thinking ‘why isn’t nettle consumed more and available ready to drink?’ This was their lightbulb moment. They decided to develop Emunity blended with other healthy ingredients and sweetened to taste, bringing an ancient yet successful remedy into the 21st Century, It took Covid19 to make them realise that consumers needed Emunity now more than ever.
We have also launched our drinks on Amazon to make the benefits of Nettle available to masses.
