Real Remedy's founders, husband and wife team Vanessa and James Jacoby have been working towards the creation of this business for many years. 

James' background as a Holistic Coach, Personal Trainer, Shiatsu Practitioner and Shaman had perfectly prepared him for working with the plants and Vanessa's background in corporate banking provided her with a sharp mind for business and market strategy. 

Working at the bank had been challenging for Vanessa, so she sought renovation in yoga, meditation and development workshops. One evening a singing bowl was placed on her heart after a yoga class. When it was struck, she instantly accessed a transcendent state of bliss, the effects of which altered every aspect of her being. She found that she could literally no longer do the work the bank demanded.

Over the next few months she focused on healing, self-discovery and personal empowerment. A series of transformative experiences led to fresh perspective and renewed vitality. A vision for a new company dedicated to healing and growth begun to form and James' entrepreneurial background and holistic training fit perfectly into the mix. 

Together they planned her exit strategy, sourced and researched over 300 herbs, plants and roots, gathered a team of experts and begun the business. 


Products for CONSCIOUS consumers


It became clear there was space for products which served people sensitive to the energetic effects of plants, as well as for a growing market of those who would like to be more so. 

Underlying every Real Remedies product is a desire to facilitate a deeper understanding of one's internal experiences and how we relate to the external world. 

The time-tested, widely acknowledged Chakra system served as the perfect foundation and guided by the plants, the products begun to take shape.
