In 2017 I decided I wanted to make some lifestyle changes and live holistically. I began researching and working with herbs to enhance my day to day lifestyle. I began my official journey with herbalism in 2018 when remedies and products I was using began to change my life for the better. I am now a certified herbalist with many products and remedies under my belt. I have assisted people around the world with skin and body issues through the safe use of herbs. I have trained and certified over 70 women both in the states and internationally in holistic self-care, product making, and herbalism.

Simply Marie Apothecary's all natural body products are made with southern love straight out of Houston, Texas. We are an independently-owned company that believes in using the best essential oil and natural products. Our premium line of essential oil products are handmade, all natural, and carefully paired. Indulge yourself today.

Self appreciation & love are needs, not wants...

You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. You are free, you are powerful, you are good, you are love, you have value, you have a purpose. All is well.


Simply Marie Apothecary was born from a need and want to live better. It has become so much more and has much further to go.
