Ray first started on his mission for herbs in 1993 when he discovered a unique but very significant herb called Damiana. Bedazzled by its many benefits, he wanted to tell the world about it but was soon horrified to discover that it was forbidden to make claims and therefore learn about the benefits and healing power of herbs. Ray dropped his corporate lifestyle to set out to change this and formed The Happy Herb Company, which grew to over 55 stores around the globe. His book, Happy High Herbs, is now on it’s 8th edition and has sold almost 30,000 copies worldwide, and he continues this creative plight with his latest venture Elixiba, a chain of plant based restaurants which presents a whole new way of appreciating and playing with the herbs. A true expert and passionate leader in this industry, his personal mission is to promote the appreciation, information, benefits, culture, use and availability of all natural plants and herbs.
