our origin story
Kim Manley’s enthusiasm for formulating personal care products developed while awaiting the arrival of her beloved daughter, Bonnie Rose. Concerned about the harsh chemicals used in mainstream baby care products, she instead created her own collection of gentle and soothing formulas, planting the seed from which her business has since thrived. Always at work expanding the scope of KM Herbals through channels of production and education, Kim continues to commit herself to providing luxury products crafted with intention, wisdom, and passion.Now offering everything from skincare treatments to hair and body formulas, KM Herbals supplies our community with the same tender and carefully crafted products for loved ones of every age.

Kim Manley is the creator and formulator of KM Herbals, Inc. She is a practicing Herbalist, Aromatherapist, Flower Essence Practitioner, Massage Therapist, Reiki Practitioner, and a celebrated Educator.
Kim Manley began her work with herbs and essential oils in 1980 at California School of Herbal Studies, working extensively with leading herbalists and wellness experts to perfect her craft. Her longstanding dedication to quality ingredients, sustainability, organic farming, and holistic wellness has given her a unique approach to luxury beauty, evidenced by her diverse and mindfully fashioned botanical product lines.
Establishing her business in 1992, Kim asserted the vital properties and importance of quality raw botanicals at a time when notions of “holistic wellness” were often deemed an abstract and impractical construct. It is pioneers like Kim, who’ve held a dedicated vision of wellness (as an accessible way of life) and authentic beauty (developing from the inside out), that have laid the groundwork for the thriving and respected industries each are today.
