  Who We Are...  


We Are:

A woman owned business, incorporated a few years ago when the growth of Nature's Gift made incorporation financially necessary. (Inventory growth is taxed as income and one year the taxes were greater than my salary!)

I'm Marge. You can read more about me on the personal page link below.  Deborah Smith (affectionately known as "T") is my production manager, responsible for everything that has to do with getting your orders to you safely, accurately, and quickly.  She is assisted by a competent staff, mostly female with one lone young man lending a hand. In the office Christi is my right arm. She will probably answer the phone if you call. (Hope that she does, she's much nicer and more patient than I am!)  She has probably billed your order, prepared your packing slip/invoice, prepared the labels for your products, and, in general, kept things going smoothly.  I research, select, and design our products, write our website, write our newsletter, try to keep up with incoming questions, and try to help you learn what these healing oils can do to improve your quality of life.

What we do:

Nature's Gift is your source for the best in pure essential oils and aromatherapy accessories. Hand-selected essential oils, sourced internationally from single source crops and distillers who take pride in their craft. Our essential oil selection ranges from Ambrette Seed to Zdravetz and includes over 170 different oils and absolutes. Organically cultivated or ethically wild-crafted plants, artfully distilled to bring across the fullest range of aromatic molecules, never bulked, rectified or adulterated.

Packaged in a range of sizes to fit your needs and your pocketbook. Whether you need exotic hydrosols, exquisite aromatics for perfumery or skincare, therapeutic oils for healthcare and physical or 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 to 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 finest we can find from producers around the world.  Our therapeutic blends, massage oils, skincare products, etc. are our own creation.

We want you to have the information you need to choose wisely, so our online catalogue and our labels always provide full information on each oil: its horticultural method, country of origin, plant part distilled, extraction method, whether steam distilled, solvent extracted, or CO2 extracted, as well as any relevant safety warnings.

Visit the Sample Request page on our web site and request samples of oils or blends that intrigue you. We offer secure online ordering with a simple to navigate shopping cart on a secure server. More traditional payment methods are also offered, as well as special discounts for healthcare professionals, good customer discounts and gifts. This woman-owned business is dedicated to serving all your aromatic needs. 

We have been online since 1995.  Our founder Marge, has spoken on the safe and appropriate use of essential oils at many conferences and gatherings, has written articles published and self published, and has made sourcing and making available the purest and highest quality oils her passion and life's work.  


How We Got Here...


Nature's Gift evolved out of my love for the Essential Oils. I started out, a long time ago, dabbling with fresh and dried herbs. Enjoyed that...but 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 on a deeper level, emotionally. I read every book and article on the subject I could find, 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 so Nature's Gift was borne.

Since then, my "self-taught" status has been 'corrected' by more formalized education, and through the generous spirits of many mentors.

At Nature's Gift, I carefully select Pure Essential Oils from the four corners of the world. Our goal is to provide the finest quality pure and natural essential oils available today. I do not shop by price, nor do I buy from "mass market" suppliers, but rather from small distillers who either grow their crop themselves, or personally know and observe the farmers whose oils they sell.

Most of our oils are either organically grown, or ethically wildcrafted with concern for the worldwide environment and ecosystem.

Environmentally Safe

Our synergistic blends are carefully designed using our own pure essential oils, sometimes blended with other totally natural ingredients. Nothing artificial is ever added. I spend a tremendous amount of time and effort seeking out the best suppliers, to provide the highest possible quality ingredients for my blends.

The oils you will find offered here offer very little in common with those you will find in your local health food shop. We have purity tests (GC/MS reports) on approximately 3/4's of the oils we offer. Am I going to test every batch of oil from a distiller I've worked with for years? No...because I don't want to have to pass that additional cost on to you. Do I test oils from new sources and suppliers? Almost always. We usually don't test our absolutes, because I sincerely hope no one is using them for therapeutic reasons, or internally.

Over the years, I've been privileged to meet some of you, at various conferences and conventions. And, of course, I've talked to a lot of you on the phone or via E-mail.
