Legacy of Beauty
Dedicated to preserving and protecting our home on mother earth as a beautiful place to live for future generations.
Aloha friends and welcome!
I’m KG Stiles, an earth-loving certified clinical aromatherapist and licensed and accredited holistic health practitioner for more than four decades. I've worked with many celebrities and have been referred to as the, "Aromatherapist to the Stars!”
My advice and services have included not only internationally famous celebrities and athletes, but also entrepreneurs and top executives, individuals, small business owners, spa therapists, hospitals and medical centers.
It all started when, at a very young age, I discovered I had a genuine interest in helping people feel better. My mother, a licensed cosmetologist, influenced my natural interest and love for creating beauty. Being born-and-raised by the coastal waterways of Wilmington, North Carolina, also inspired my natural love of beauty.
I realized early on it was the way people were thinking that caused most, if not all, of their problems. I became passionate about changing the way people think about their life situation. After college, and with nothing more than a desire to help people overcome their challenges, I began pursuing my dream.
Insatiably curious, I became a lifelong student of fitness, wellness, nutrition, philosophy, metaphysics, astrology and psychology. After discovering the work of Carl Jung and Rudolph Steiner, I traveled to the Findhorn community in Scotland and rekindled my connection with the Devic kingdom and became even more immersed in the transformational healing arts.
After being introduced to essential oils, I realized that I had found what I had been looking for my entire life. One sniff of pure plant essences can instantly shift a person’s thinking and mental attitude.
I’ve used essential oils in conjunction with other holistic healing methods to recover from early childhood issues of abuse, as well as suffering with a ten-year physical disability that included chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, heavy metal toxicity, Candida and allergies.
During that time, I relentlessly spent tens of thousands of dollars searching and trying dozens of allopathic and alternative treatments, none of which ever helped. As a matter of fact, my symptoms of pain and dysfunction just kept getting worse.
In my search for healing I dug deep into the research, I found that using only the purist and best treatments and products gave my clients the results desired. And, the only way to guarantee purity was to source and manufacture my own products whenever possible.
After years of research, and finding what worked for my clients and myself, I launched the PurePlant Essentials brand label.
Committed to producing the highest quality aromatherapy products, I started my online company armed with only a rickety old computer and my passion for essential oils and writing, However, it was my willingness to adapt and persevere through challenges that turned out to be my greatest asset.
Then, in the summer of 2015 well known literary agent contacted me about representation. We signed a contract and one year later my first traditionally published book about ‘essential oils’ was released by Page Street Publishing.
My best-selling book, The Essential Oils Complete Reference Guide, now in its 5th printing, won a 'Living Now' Gold Medal and was a Nautilus and Indie Next Generation Book Award Winner. You can buy The Essential Oils Complete Reference Guide on Amazon.com, at Whole Foods Market, and other fine books sellers.
I'm happy to have created a socially conscious online presence for sourcing premium quality aromatherapy products and education. Over the past 15+ years we've positively impacted millions of lives around the world. My online aromatherapy product offerings, courses and books help people live true to themselves, free to take meaningful action and create a life they love.
I invite you to join our community and get started now!
