Welcome! We are thrilled that you found us!


You may be wondering how this website came to be. When Rachel discovered Young Living Essential Oils, the first thing she wanted to do was learn as much as she could. She quickly found that there was a lot to learn. She decided she wanted to simplify the process for others. Here you can find everything you need to know all in one place. It's meant to be both a resource and a community. If you are interested in essential oils, living a healthier life, removing toxic chemicals from your daily life, or learning to DIY you will fit right in here. We believe that life is complicated and messy enough; we want to help you live a life that is simple, honest, and essential. 


We would love to get to know you personally. If you have any questions or simply want to say hello, please shoot an email to rachel@simplehonestessential.com. We would love to stay in touch! Make sure you add us on social media by clicking the links at the bottom of the page and sign up for our monthly newsletter.
