Our History and Future

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.


Carolyn Jess started her new business, Pathway to Herbs, from her home in the town of Pleasant Hill, Ohio. The name, Pathway to Herbs, came to her very simply. 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!

I had been a customer of Carolyn’s for about the ten years and had gotten to know her quite well in that time. When Carolyn approached my husband and I 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.
