Shanti Volpe

Founder, Owner, CEO of Shanti Elixirs, LLC

Maker: Beverage Professional

Shanti Volpe, RN, BSN, IBCLC is a nurse, perinatal educator, lactation consultant, wife and mother. Her interest in holistic health led her on a transformation journey where she became a beekeeper and Jun brewer. Delighted with finding another form of gut health for her family she began “playing” with the magical living Jun culture using her Blissful Bee Apiary Honey.

It didn’t take long for her family, friends and coworkers to urge her to make more. With much love and support from family and friends and the demand for these sacred elixirs, Shanti gave birth to Shanti Elixirs, LLC. Shanti now loves to share her knowledge with others. Her company is dedicated to helping people find peace and balance both internally and externally while honoring environmental stewardship.

Jun is a sparkling probiotic green tea made with raw honey that has a light, smooth, and unique flavor profile. Green tea has powerful antioxidant properties and raw honey has antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
