Simplers Botanicals provides the highest-quality organic essential oils to practitioners and consumers. That’s because over the past 30 plus years, the Simplers Botanicals mission has been to deliver aromatherapy the way nature intended—with natural products that are as true to the aroma of the original plants as possible.
As a result, Simplers Botanicals is one of the most sought-after sources of therapeutic quality, certified organic essential oils and herbal extracts. Our exceptional line of products reflects an inherent passion for quality, purity and integrity. With over 100 products—essential oils, therapeutic perfumes, therapeutic hydrosols, infused and carrier oils, topical blends and argan facial treatments—Simplers Botanicals brings authentic products with unparalleled aromatic potency to the marketplace.
Our experienced staff herbalists source organic essential oils direct from artisan distillers all over the world to ensure they are genuine, species specific, expertly distilled and 100 percent pure. We offer certified organic essential oils whenever an organic option is available, and occasionally, when necessary, we opt for ethically, wildcrafted, non-organic oils of the highest therapeutic potency.
All organic products receive United States Department of Agriculture National Organic Program (USDA NOP) certification, conducted by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), a USDA NOP accredited certifying agency. We enjoy supporting organic farms in France, Germany, Egypt, Nepal, Madagascar, Albania, Sri Lanka, Morocco, Indonesia, Guatemala, El Salvador, Argentina, Croatia, Australia, Canada and the United States.
Most of our staff are graduates of the California School of Herbal Studies in Forestville, California. Our blending and bottling specialists all share a reverence for plants, the environment, and the Earth, and this is reflected in the care used to prepare our products. Our staff herbalists are happy to answer your aromatherapy questions!
James and Mindy Green (well known herbalists, authors and lecturers) started Simplers Botanicals in 1981. At the time, they owned and operated the California School of Herbal Studies in Forestville, California, one of the oldest herbal schools in America, founded by Rosemary Gladstar in 1978. The Greens launched a Lavender Essential Oil and Stress Relief Compound in 1981, which are still some of the most popular Simplers Botanicals products today. They named their brand “Simplers,” an old world term for “herbalist.” In the past, one would go to a simpler to get a “simple” remedy for an ailment.
Simplers Botanicals moved out of the California School of Herbal Studies by the 1990s, but our employees have mainly been students or graduates of the school ever since. We all have a connection to the plants and reverence for the products. This dedication and integrity has brought us much success.
Simplers Botanicals joined Nutraceutical in 2013 and continues our mission to deliver aromatherapy the way nature intended … by supporting practitioners and consumers with what are arguably the finest essential oils and extracts you will find anywhere.
