VISION & VALUES
We created ampersand essentials based on THREE pillars: being approachable, AFFORDABLE, and TRUSTWORTHY. but what does that mean? keep reading to find out!
We understand that living an all-natural lifestyle can seem daunting and too large of a task. But trust us when we say this: it's much easier than you think! It just takes practice and time. But guess what? You don't have to be perfect at it, because we aren't either! Living an all-natural lifestyle is a journey and filled with continual growth; let us show you the ropes as we grow together in our own personal journeys and learn more along the way!
From the very beginning, we wanted to create a business that could help bring all-natural products to your home without you having to pay and arm and a leg to get what you want. We noticed many companies taking advantage of "greenwashing" and marking up their prices just because things were advertised as "all-natural" (news flash: most of them still contain synthetics!).
Our prices are some of the lowest - research and see for yourself!
When the idea of opening an all-natural business first came to our minds, it was because we saw how much misinformation there was on the internet, especially when it came to essential oils and the Aromatherapy industry. We were getting so many questions about pretty serious topics within these subjects, and we wanted to make sure we could be a resource to be trusted. That's why our founder Michelle became an Aromatherapist!

VALUES & EXPERTISE
OUR VALUES & intentions
Ampersand Essentials is run off the basis that we are called to love one another and serve one another in the best way we can. While all of us here love the Lord and are Christians, that doesn't mean we are going to judge others and shame others for their actions or choices. No one here is perfect, and we don't have the right to judge, so why should we?
So let's get right to the heart of the issue: we truly value serving you, the customer and client, in the best way possible. If you are part of the LGBTQ+ community, welcome! We love you just as much as anyone else. We don't view you any different, and we won't serve you any differently than we do the rest of our customers. You are welcome, cherished and loved here.
Our purpose is to create a digital space for acceptance, love and support as you walk through your all-natural lifestyle and journey. We are here to support you, to cheer you on, and to support you in any way we can! When we say reach out to us, we truly mean it!
OUR EXPERTISE IS UNMATCHED
Much of our marketing team has a background in all sorts of medical fields, both modern and eastern. Our owner Michelle is a Certified Aromatherapist with the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA); our Director of Marketing Gaby is a Licensed Clinical Counselor, and our Manager of Social Interactions Alaina is a Registered Nurse. And not only that, but our Director of Social Media Jenny is a teacher who loves to share about life experiences! With a combined passion of essential oils, teaching, and the medical field, we knew we could uniquely offer expertise in bridging the gap between two seemingly opposing fields.
Our team is dedicated to helping people in all sorts of ways, both within Ampersand Essentials and in their full time jobs: in Clinical Counseling, Nursing, and Teaching. By working together, we have created a company where you can go to get a trustworthy resource, to find incredible products that really can work for you, and unmatched customer service. We hope and pray that your health and well-being will shine and improve beyond your wildest dreams!
