Anyone who knew Danielle Garrison quickly became her guinea pig.
She made and sold her own lotions, soaps and shampoos, and she recruited all her family and friends — no matter how sensitive their skin or nose — to test them for her.
Once she had finished toying with different natural ingredients and adjusting her recipes, the products worked better than anything in the store, her friends and family said.
Garrison, 27, died Sept. 5 in a motorcycle accident on State Road 135 in Brown County. She was thrown off the back when the motorcycle slid on its side. Police said the driver, Garrison’s boyfriend Quintin Lambert, had been passing vehicles in a no-passing zone, came over a hill and then swerved to avoid a truck.
