We had the good fortune of connecting with Rosemarie Aarnes and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Rosemarie, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Better Healthy altenative beverage options since Covid happend and wanted to help other people to drink healthier.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I was int he medical field, Unfortunatly I broke my kne some years a go and had to get a total knee replacment and going back to the hosptal and take care of patients was a challange. I decided to start my own company Health Equal Wealth. Spred yummy , fresh and crisp vibrant hibiscus drink to my fellow Coloradoens. I am very proud of that I get to make my own beverage brand. I modernized a jamaican christmas drink I made for years home.With help from my husband and local co packer and factory Redlaw sauce in Golden CO. Nothing is easy or to impossible but once you put your mind to it you can accomplish any good things in life. The hardest part was to g\come up with 3 different flavors. Now I got an Original, Sugar Free and a Chia seed version. I have 4 more flavors up my sleeve and developing jams as well. Eat your problems for breakfast and see solutions instead of problems and never give up.

I want to let the world know that by small steps with Roselle Hibiscus Delight I can change the world little by little and open peoples mind about a new world of non alcoholic drink from hibiscus. After training, this beverage is so refreshing and it recharge your batteries. Chia seeds with its antioxidant power, omega 3 armour and fibre content you are sure to make your body happy.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take my best friend to Annette at Stanley Market place, Anas Norwegian bakery and Brothers BBQ to get to taste some different flavors and great service.

Also I would take my friend to High Altitude Martial Arts and Lifetime Fitness to get some MMA, Strength & Condition and Swimming so you get ready for the mile high city.

Also take a morning run at Red Rocks and finish up with a lunch at Choice Market at Bannock street where you can also buy Roselle Hibiscus Delight.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My husband and my late daughter that passed away in 2019. She loved the homemade hibuscus drink and pushed me to make it.
