Brown, Irie Rock's managing director, felt the urge to start her own business when her employer started to lay off workers.
"The whole experience got me to thinking what if I was going to be one of those persons soon," Brown said.
Irie Rock Yaad Spa was the first concept to take off from the drawing board.
"The idea was that customers could take the spa to their homes," she said. "The products would give off a spa-like experience."
The name was later changed to Irie Rock with no worry that the idea would be lost.
