Our Story

Johntay & Leslie Brown

This Mother-Son duo created LIT Essentials out of their passion for self care & wellness.

Our Beginnings...

Johntay is our Chief Product Creator and works on the business full-time. Prior to starting LIT, Johntay worked in the cosmetics and body care industry for 10+ years. It was his experience working with natural skincare products and his love for essential oils, self-care and wellness that led him to start the business.

Johntay and Leslie's goal with LIT is to make aromatherapy and wellness more accessible, engaging and personal. Personal wellness is extremely important to them. Aromatherapy, combined with good diet and fitness practices has helped them with stress management and overall health and wellness. 

In 2019 Johntay quit his job and began developing essential oil blends and practical use products that would address various aromatherapy outcomes. He and the production team are based in Atlanta, Ga where they lead workshops & classes, offer customer blending sessions, and host events in our Aromabar & Makery Retail Shop.
