That's a great question! Honestly Essential is a family run small business. Cecilia Salvesen, the brains behind the oils, blends, books and business is a MASTER Aromatherapist with 26 years of experience under her belt. She's had several major Essential Oil companies approach her to formulate their blends and brands and has taught and trained many alternative health practitioners. She is also our incredible mother/mother-inlaw with zero online marketing saviness (It's true, she won't deny it). So that's where we stepped in! Her health and essential oil store, The Natural Apothecary, which is based in Orem, Utah, is outgrowing itself and now needs a little nudging in the online spectrum so we created this website to grow the business.
Cecilia is one of the best in the industry and has the portfolio to prove it (more on her can be found HERE). But she wants to provide her refined expertise in oils to everyone who is interested, without any hooks or contingencies. So, yes, we want to sell you the best of the best oils but we also want to help provide you with the best of the best info (and the correct info) in the oil industry. Cecilia Salvesen knows her stuff and wants you to know it too. So Honestly Essential Oils is more than an online oil store, it's a relationship between you, the customer, and us.
