Be Kind Botanicals offers the highest quality, pure essential oils and information for professionals and those just starting their essential oil journey. Owned and operated by a clinically trained Registered Aromatherapist (RA), we take pride in testing every single batch of essential oils using qualified labs and share our results freely.
Be Kind Botanicals was founded in 2017 in Buckeye, Arizona after rebranding from our original start in 2013. Our focus has always been to help others support their holistic lifestyles with high quality, pure essential oils. Working directly with artisan distillers, we found a means to connect our clients with the oils they love and bring more awareness to how kindness can be applied to eachother and every living thing.
Currently, our owner and RA, Lola King facilitates and manages every aspect of Be Kind Botanicals. At times she employs the support of her Veteran husband to help. Lola is a Registered Aromatherapist (RA) from the Aromatherapy Registration Council (ARC) with over 600 hours of essential oil/aromatherapy training. It includes basic and advanced programs from Aromahead School of Essential Oils, Robert Tisserand's Advanced Certification program for Essential Oil Chemistry and Pharmacology, Cathy Skipper's Hydrosol Certification course, and Ann Harman’s Distillation Workshop. She's currently is enrolled in the Atlantic Institute of Aromatherapy's Essential Oil Correspondence program. She's also an active business member and State Co-Representative for the Alliance of International Aromatherapists (AIA).
Because of our owner's unique training from the wine industry, her keen sense for aromatics allows her to select the best essential oils with organoleptic testing. She also has worked in a clinical setting so that allows Be Kind Botanicals to operate using great care for Good Manufacturing Practies - key for any business that works with plant based products. In addition to these, Lola also distills unique local plant materials Ponderosa Pine and Alligator Juniper. With her vast training in organoleptics, good manufacturing practices, distilling and essential oils, Be Kind Botanicals has become a company many look to for the highest quality, pure essential oils. It also helps that her kind nature shines through Be Kind Botanicals - spreading kindness with every drop.
