At Nature’s Gift, we carefully select pure essential oils from the four corners of the world. The oils you find offered here have very little in common with those you find in your local health food shop. We have purity tests (GC/MS reports) performed on approximately three-quarters of the oils we offer. Most of our oils are either organically grown or ethically wildcrafted with concern for the worldwide environment and ecosystem. Our synergy blends are carefully designed using our own pure essential oils, sometimes blended with other totally natural ingredients. Nothing artificial is ever added.
Hello and welcome! I’m Marge Clark, and I founded Nature’s Gift 25 years ago. I research, select and design our products, write many of our product descriptions, and provide copy for our newsletters. Most of all, I’m passionate about helping you discover what these healing oils can do to improve your quality of life.
Nature’s Gift evolved out of my love for essential oils. I started out in the mid-1980s, dabbling with fresh and dried herbs. I enjoyed that…but in an apartment without even a very sunny window to grow my own, buying other people’s dried herbs did not seem the way to go. Somewhere in the process of using herbs (perhaps for potpourri?) I bought some essential oils.
I was, and still am, totally in awe of their healing, balancing power… first physically, but also on a deeper level, emotionally. I read every book and article on the subject I could find (and there were precious few in the ‘80s and early ‘90s), and started experimenting. Bless my friends and family for playing ‘guinea pig’ during that stage!
Friends started saying “I want to pay you for this” and then “you ought to sell this; people need to be able to buy it!” And voilà: Nature’s Gift was born! Since then, my “self-taught” status has been extended by more formalized education and also through the generous spirit of many mentors. Nature’s Gift is your source for the best in pure essential oils and aromatherapy accessories. Hand-selected and sourced internationally from single source crops and distillers who take pride in their craft, our selection ranges from Ammi visnaga to Zdravetz and includes over 170 different oils and absolutes. Our oils come from organically cultivated or ethically wild-crafted plants, artfully distilled to bring across the fullest range of aromatic molecules. They are never bulked, rectified or adulterated. Whether you need exotic hydrosols, exquisite aromatics for perfumery or skincare, therapeutic oils for health care or physical/emotional balance….or just basic bottles and carrier oils for blending, you will find them all at Nature’s Gift.
We are sometimes asked “Whose oils do you carry?” The answer is “our oils.” We are our own “brand”: we don’t offer the oils you will find under other labels. We select the very finest we can find from producers around the world. Our therapeutic blends, massage oils, skincare products, etc. are our own creations.
We love to share what we know, so you can choose wisely. Our online catalog and our labels always provide full information on each oil: its horticultural method, country of origin, plant part distilled, extraction method (steam-distilled, CO2 extracted, etc.) as well as any relevant safety warnings.
