About Pathway to Herbs Our History

In 1986 Carolyn Jess tried a profoundly different approach to address some personal health problems. Carolyn did some research and took some herbs and within a month’s time she began feeling much better. She was so excited about it that she decided she wanted to help others feel better too. Carolyn, a devout Christian, prayed about it and ultimately decided to start selling herbs and supplements herself. Carolyn truly felt it was her calling. And she would do her best to serve all the customers that came to seek her help.

In order to see Carolyn and buy her herbs and supplements, you would have to walk the path to the back room of her house. Pathway to Herbs was born!

After four decades of serving Pleasant Hill, Covington, West Milton, Troy, the greater Miami Valley, parts of Indiana and beyond, Carolyn decided it was time to retire and relax a bit with her husband Lowell. Saying good bye to the business and network she built was definitely a bittersweet decision for her. It had been such a huge part of her life for so many years.

I had been a customer of Carolyn’s for about the last ten years and had gotten to know her quite well in that time. When Carolyn approached my husband and I late last year to see if we would be interested in purchasing it I was really taken by surprise and was quite humbled that she would think to trust me with the business she built. Quite honestly, because taking herbs and supplements for my family’s better health and helping others too had become a passion of mine, it didn’t take long for us to decide to go for it. On December 31, 2015 my husband, Colin, and I took the plunge and purchased Pathway to Herbs.

We plan to continue serving all of our existing customers and growing our network by using the internet and introducing ourselves to many others through this website. It is my sincere hope that if you are searching for solutions to your own or your family’s health needs, that you find it by whatever means. If Pathway to Herbs can be of any assistance to you on your own journey, then don’t hesitate to drop us a note, call us, or visit us in Pleasant Hill, Ohio.
