How we do business
Peace and warm greetings,
First, I’m glad you’re here. It means you have an interest in how we do business, source our supplies or how products are manufactured.
I want to start by sharing JOHARI and LOU Artisan Soul Stones is black owned, veteran owned and ran by a certified holistic practitioner formally educated in: Complementary and Alternative Health, Evidence Informed Practice in Ancient Healing Arts, Philosophy of Well-being as well as Pyschoneuroimmunology (study of mind-body and immune system) thru the University of Maryland University of Integrated Health, and University of Arizona, so I guarantee you — your energy is in great hands!
Since we’re a very small artisan business, we don’t disclose our vendors, nor do we share specific information as to who we do business with. But I’m more than happy to explain how our products come to be from our creative space, to your home.
JOHARI & LOU Artisan Soul Stones has collaborated with four long time partners domestically (farmers included) and family-owned businesses (+internationally) who are also associated with the SBA. We work with likeminded companies who are sustainable, environmentally conscious, and whose moral ethic are aligned with our mission and purpose, which is to bridge art, healing and expression legally of course.
Here at JLASS we’re known for our one of kind jewelry pieces, and crystal infused products. Our materials are produced in small batches which allows us to properly inspect and curate collections that you ultimately see on our website.
It is our goal to always ensure that we partner with companies who are operating legally (licensed, incorporated), and with the environment in mind. We know the “healing” business can be trendy and thus a bit difficult to weed out businesses who mean well. JLASS operates from a place of research and education, balance, love, and most importantly good energy. Most times our items are only available in small quantities. We do this to ensure quality, and also because we’re pretty small in size, and so to keep a balance of work-life we ensure we don’t overload ourselves with more than we can handle (shipping, packaging and creating).
Lastly, as a major advocate for self-care we ensure we're well rested and in good spirits to be available during business hours for your needs.
It is always our pleasure to create for you, and we hope to have opened your eyes to how we’re operating in-house.
