About Gilley's Naturals..
The story of Gilley's Naturals started much the same way as many businesses do.
We were looking for natural products for our growing family; things we could trust and afford, so I began doing research and experimenting. Friends began helping with "research and development" and soon were asking to purchase the products. A store front eventually opened up in Cook MN in 2009. Business enjoyed steady growth and popularity, as people began telling their friends and family about Gilley's natural care products. Due to the area being a hot spot for tourists, many visitors come in from all over the nation to enjoy beautiful Lake Vermilion and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. Others would stop in on their way north to Orr, Crane Lake, Kabetogama MN and even Canada. In June 2013, a fire destroyed the entire building and all of its contents. After a month of sifting through the remains, we realized that amazingly-- most of the recipes had survived! It took some time, about a year, till I began slowly making some of the original products and the business was reborn.
Now Gilley's Naturals is run by the family from our home in the woods in northern Minnesota. With the growing popularity of essential oils and concerns over toxin exposure, Gilley's handmade products will continue to strive for quality and trustworthiness. We believe God has blessed our endeavors and we're eternally grateful to Him. We hope you'll see the difference in our products and would love to hear from you. May God bless you and your families! - Jill Gilley
