All good things have a beginning and ours began in the suburbs of San Diego California. Raising 3 children and concerned (as only a mother can be) about their wellness, many of us turned to holistic health and herbal products for our families. After moving to northern Minnesota and raising those three and a "mid-life baby", it became even more necessary to rethink the way we cared for our bodies. The chemical, unsafe and toxic things we'd feared were popping up in skin care products, raising questions about the safety of new additions to our sometimes favorite things. It became a passion to find natural ways to use our favorite products.
As the grandchildren came along, research demanded changes be made and urged by concientous friends, Gilley's Naturals Ltd was formed. It was a shaky, unknown business to start in the northwoods! We jumped out in faith that people were looking at the same things we were with new eyes towards things that promised better health & wellness, naturally. We changed recipes, researched more, offered new products and the store in Cook MN became a reality in 2009. We hope you will see our conviction and know that we have one goal through our company - to help people live life more productively in healthier, kinder ways.....naturally.

We do old fashioned research to develop things. If we want something to kill germs, we research the oils and/or herbs that will do that. When that's done, we make small test batches that we usually pass out to our Research & Development team.....our willing friends and families!
