Gail has created JustBe Botanicals, an all natural feel good range that includes multiple award winning skincare, sensory spa treatments, herbal teas and aromatherapy chocolates. JustBe asks the simple question ‘how would you like to feel?’ – from which there are 7 blends to choose from. JustBe Happy is the most popular. In addition to smelling gorgeous, they’re emotionally nourishing and packed full of therapeutic benefits. The essence of JustBe is to encourage others to simply be themselves. The entire range is hand blended in small batches in Scotland – the majority by Gail herself. The recently opened Gin Spa in Glasgow, have chosen JustBe as it fits with their ethos of being Botanical, Boutique and Bespoke.
Gail is proud to be an Ambassador for Women’s Enterprise Scotland.
Prior to starting JustBe in 2009, Gail worked in Consumer Insight roles for 4 FMCG companies: Kimberly Clark, Heinz, Scottish & Newcastle and Diagoe who’s brands include Andrex, Heinz Baked Beans, Foster’s and Guinness. Gails day job of analysing what consumers do within a supermarket or a pub environment, naturally expanded into understanding our motives behind why we do what we do. Gail re-trained as a life coach, before embarking on a range of wellbeing therapies that include holistic massage, lomi lomi, bach flower remedies, mind detox and clinical aromatherapy.
Gail graduated from the University of Stirling with a BAcc in Accountancy and Marketing. Gail was born and brought up in Dumfries and now lives and works in Edinburgh.
