The Little Healing Place is a spa basket company

BROCKTON — One woman’s quest to improve her mental health sparked a spa hamper business aimed at helping others.

Brianna Wangnoon, 29, from Brockton, suffered from depression and found self-care days at home to be a temporary sigh of relief.

The idea of ​​having a spa in a box is what brought The Little Healing Place LLC to life.

“I wanted to do something that could contribute to society and give people a moment of peace, even if it’s just a moment. Sometimes that’s all you need,” Wangnoon said.

The entrepreneur faced some of her toughest battles, but kept pushing through them because she knew better days were coming.

During this time, she experimented with natural oils and herbs to create a skincare line.

From the comfort of Wangnoon’s kitchen, she created body butter, face oil, milk bath, candles and bath salts.

Brianna Wangnoon shows off one of her popular packages called "tropical state of mind," which contains a bathrobe, slippers, candle, body butter, face oil, self-healing book, notebook and pen, on Tuesday, August 2, 2022.

The process was interesting for the entrepreneur because she had no previous experience developing skincare products.

“I did a lot of research online to develop the formulas, it took about three months, but customers love the rich scents I created,” Wangnoon said.

The spa baskets come in two fragrant themes, “Cry In Cashmere” and “Tropical State Of Mind”.

Inside the basket, depending on whether you order a small or a large, you will find a bathrobe, slippers, the entire skin care line of body butter, bath salts, face oils, candles and a notebook with a pen.

The scents are aromatherapy and they work by tickling your senses with sweet, warm scents that will soothe your mind, Wangnoon said.

Wangnoon, a 2020 graduate of Bridgewater State University with a degree in psychology and special education, knows how vital the conversation about mental health is.

“In our city, it’s normal to dismiss sanity and say you’re okay even when you’re not. If I’m being honest, that’s the environment we find ourselves in. So we need to normalize asking for help and knowing it’s okay not to be well,” Wangnoon said.

Spa days have given the mother-of-one a way to take care of her mind and body differently than usual.

“It takes my mind off the stressors of the world for a moment,” Wangnoon said.

During the day, Wangnoon is a real estate agent and helps in the family business. Stress is something that constantly happens in her life, but creating the gift sets gives her purpose.

“Making these baskets to show people that they are loved and cared for is personal to me. I love reminding people how special they are with the baskets, and I hope it brings them some form of healing. “Wangnoon said.

Wangnoon plans to launch his website thelittlehealingplace.com in the coming weeks. Potential customers can place an order by following and direct message The Little Healing Place on Instagram or Facebook.
