Bethany Stahl

Owner & maker

I’m a best-selling and award winning author, illustrator, aromatherapist and herbalist with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and I'm proudly the owner and founder of Happy Little Herbs LLC.

I’ve studied under renowned herbalists, scientists and aromatherapists. I’ve received a Certificate of Recognition from Dr. Jane Goodall for my environmentalism work and have dedicated my entire life to sharing the love of the planet we all have the pleasure of calling home.

Happy Little Herbs is my way to feel good about using natural products with ingredients I know are organic, high-quality and obtained from reputable sources, small farmers and suppliers. From chemical constituents to the energetics, I focus on bringing the best products and science to you.

I feel in love with all-natural products when I realized how much they improved my quality of life while battling chronic illnesses. They greatly aid me in finding daily comfort, and I want them to help you too.

Let me help you find your happy!

Our Commitment to Sustainabilty

We prioritize sourcing fair-trade, direct trade, ethically sourced, local, and USDA organic and all-natural products including growing our own! We seek GC/MS reports for all of our essential oils and only seek the best quality products - and you can feel and smell it! As a farm to face brand and small business, we strive to keep the connection to our earth in every product and bring the highest-quality products to you.

All products are handcrafted in-house and made in small batches. All organic waste is composted and then used as soil in our gardens. We shred all compostable shipping boxes our products come in and also compost them. Recyclable components get recycled so we have a little waste as possible.

Our packaging uses recyclable and compostable tape, boxes and packaging so we are as close to plastic-free as possible (with some products being fully plastic free)! We also use glass and metal containers that are easier to recycle and reuse than plastics. While some bottles may contain a plastic element, this is minimal and is able to be reused!

We strive to give you the best quality product with the lowest impact possible on our planet. For every order, we plant one tree. Currently the tree we plant are mangroves in Madagascar! You can find our counter at the bottom of our website to see how many we've contributed and we receive a certificate every month verifying the trees were planted.

Mangroves stabilize the coastline ecosystem and help reduce erosion. Their dense roots bind and build soils while filtering nitrates, phosphates and other pollutants from the water, meaning these trees help improve the ocean too. Mangroves capture large amounts of carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and store them in their carbon-rich soils for millennia!

Mangroves also provide habitat to both terrestrial and aquatic wildlife, including acting as nurseries for shrimp, crabs, fish, and sharks!

We constantly strive to make our brand a positive to the world and the environment around us and are excited to continue to reduce our footprint.
