MEET 21-year-old entrepreneur Alaila-Lee Lawrence who has invented a plant-based drink that lowers blood pressure and helps boost energy and immune systems.
Sorrel Drinkable Lightbulbs are made of sorrel – a Hibiscus red flower that grows in Jamaica that is high in iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and potassium, and thus can help people with high blood pressure, low energy, and weak immune systems.
The product, sold exclusively through her company Clovesz, contains no preservatives, and is available in three flavours: Original Kingston, Montego Mango Bay, and Treasure Pine Beach.
In addition to the sorrel, the all-natural drink also contains natural spices, and comes from a Jamaican family recipe.
It is brewed, bottled, and sold through restaurants and markets in the Long Island and Brooklyn, New York areas.
The lightbulb container idea comes from Alaila-Lee’s goal to get closer towards reaching her true purpose, which is to spread love, health and “brighter futures”.
Alaila-Lee built her brand singlehandedly – including the brewing, bottling, designing, labeling, and marketing of the product.
Within the first three months of launching her business, she sold a thousand bottles
