Our Beginnings


The Start

Our appreciation of the natural grew from a young age living in our rural farming communities, being out in nature, and working in the home garden, as many do.  We were raised holistically and were shown to turn to nature and enjoy healthy lifestyles.  It is that upbringing which has guided us in preparing to be wise purveyors of pure unadulterated essential oils.  We learned that it is our stewardship to be a part of caring for and sharing nature's gifts with others.     


The Company

For years we have been using and sharing herbs, teas, and essential oils among our family and immediate friends. Passing along the folklore and tradition of natural plants  to the public has grown naturally.  We have  changed our active careers to do so by launching our eCommerce website upon organizing to be suppliers of natural essential oils and supplements. Our website was launched in the spring of 2017.


Health is the greatest wealth a person can possess and everyone has the right to know the gifts in nature which the Creator has designed.  We provide access to holistic products and are a hub of the information on the benefits of indigenous plants which has been around for centuries.  We provide this access here on our website.  Through passing products and information forward, we empower and keep traditional indigenous truths alive.  Since essential oils are high concentrations of plant essence, part of the information we share is for becoming familiar with how to safely use the Creator's gifts.  

I Am Essential Oils praises and joins with all natural plant providers who have increased the awareness and access of essential oils and supplements to the public.  We also demand their excellence.  


I Am Essential Oils is a stand for bringing nature and customers closer together.  We pursue ecology in its natural habitat and native region.  We demand that customers  have access to unadulterated oils. We also pursue land stewards over middle men to narrow the cost of top therapeutic essential oils and supplements. 


We are committed to be an active contribution to the health of the surrounding economic community as well.  We are daily reminded that our planet is where our children live and grow.  I Am Essential Oils products come from many ecological significant sources around the globe.  Each source location relies on sustainable forestation health, soil vitality, water purity, and the wellness of those cultivating the ecology. We are grateful to you for coming to our website. Together we can create significant positive results.

  

Our Logo

We created our logo as a reminder to reach for the source of all life similar to how the  Asteraceae varieties have been reaching to the sun since the beginning of their evolution. The early species where thought to look more like the rudbeckia fulgida of the midwest where many native american tribes resided. They were gathered  by the Dakota, Cherokee, Paiute, Hidatsa, Hopi, Zuni and Navajo tribes for food and medicine as early as 3,000 BC. Research suggests that these plants were possibly harvested before corn.  Cherokee and other Nations used asteraceae varieties for cures, purple dye in clothing and body paints.  Their stalks were integrated into their building materials and their seeds where cherished for gatherings. 


The ancient helianthus annuus  tribe of the asteraceae family has its origins in North America.  The Spanish explorers of North America took indigenous plants back with them to Europe for use as an ornamental around 1500's.  The plant's original qualities where forgotten and a new hybrid was created which came to be known as the sunflower.  Even Van Gogh painted many sunflower portraits in France circa 1888.  This new plant's oil use was ultimately popularized in the cooking industry because it was not on the Lent prohibited list.  Over time it made its way to Russia where growers changed the hybrid to produce 50% more oil yield. That hybrid has now made its way full circle, back to the United States.  It's Latin name helianthus , stems from Greek helios 'sun' + anthos 'flower'.
