Ology Essentials was founded by Kayla Fioravanti, Haleigh Fioravanti, Keegan Fioravanti, and Jacob Waddell in Nashville, TN. Notice anything? We are a family business! And it all started when Keegan urged his mom, Kayla, to try CBD.
Kayla Fioravanti has always had a deep and abiding passion for aromatherapy and natural personal care products. In 1998, Kayla co-founded Essential Wholesale, which was listed as an INC. Magazine 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in America for three years in a row. So when Keegan was recommending CBD oil, she was a little hesitant – thinking she had already seen every natural remedy under the sun – but when CBD changed her life, she knew it was going to be a revolutionary product.
Before Keegan had heard of CBD oil, he was an avid supporter of hemp for sustainability reasons. In fact, he co-founded a sustainable development company with his wife, Haleigh Fioravanti. (Are you seeing the family connection now?) Their goal was to incorporate hemp for building materials, but when CBD came on the scene and started changing lives, they switched gears.
Kayla, Keegan, and Haleigh met Mr. Jacob Waddell at the Tennessee Hemp Industries Association. At the time, Jacob was using his expertise in material sciences to experiment with hempcrete. He was a vital source of knowledge and experience, so he was snatched up immediately.
The Ology team has since grown from 4 founding members to a team/family of eight dedicated hempsters. Each member has their own personal story with hemp CBD and are wholeheartedly devoted to the growth of the hemp industry.
