My name is Naomi Kilbreth and I am a Christian Clinical Herbalist and Aromatherapist. I help people with a mission for their lives to find freedom, hope, and joy in their health. I empower people to reconnect with their instinct to care for themselves naturally, teach them how to find and make their own medicine, and help them to create holistic wellness plans that include nutrition, lifestyle options, and of course herbs! I have been offering education and support around natural health, including herbalism, since I began learning myself in 2006 with the birth of my first child, and my love for the world of natural health, and my joy in serving others with these resources has only grown exponentially since then!
My Professional Education and Affiliations includes:
Registered Herbalist (American Herbalist Guild)
Clinical Herbalism entrance exam, CommonWealth Holistic Herbalism
Holistic Herbalism Assessment Skills Certification, Matthew Wood Institute of Herbalism
Herbalism Certification, Heart of Herbs Herbal School
Aromatherapy Certification, Heart of Herbs Herbal School
And of course, never ending self-study!
As a wife and mom of four kids with a history of numerous health concerns within my family, herbalism has empowered me to be able to provide for my loved ones in a way that restores wellness and brings us together. My kids are frequently in the kitchen with me making teas, prepping herbal remedies, and experimenting with spices. Plus, our lifestyle living off grid gives our family the opportunity to live closer to the land and get to know the medicinal plant allies that live around us. Herbalism is far from just my line of work- it’s a way of life for us, and it brings me great joy to help others make it their own too.
You can find me on Instagram, Apple Podcasts and Spotify, check out my upcoming events here on the website, and subscribe to my weekly emails, or work with me directly!
I look forward to connecting with you,
P.S. If you would like to learn more about our family's experience living off grid and building our own home with cash on a small budget, I wrote a book called Coming Home, which you can find here!

Hi my name is Angelica Benoit I am an herbalist in Kansas City, MO working towards being a Clinical Herbalist and Holistic Health Practitioner. I have been married for 11 wonderful years and together my husband and I are raising 4 beautiful, wild and free-spirited children. My passion for holistic health has been with me for as long as I can remember, and my journey into this field began early in life.
I grew up in a very crunchy, holistic minded family before it was yet “trendy” or “cool” so in High School as part of my homeschool health class I read the book “Prescription For Nutritional Healing''. This book is what started it all for me, creating a deep hunger for all things regarding natural/holistic health. After I graduated I moved to the East Coast where I got the incredible privilege to work with an organization that believes in the body's natural ability to heal itself from nearly anything. I got to witness things most people would deem impossible. Instead these “impossibilities” became the foundation for how I approached healing and how the body works. My deep fascination for all things holistic health related only grew more and more as I entered motherhood and became my family's doctor/healer. Two years ago I shared my heartfelt desire to my husband that I really wanted to become a Holistic Health Practitioner but knew that my current role raising my babes and homeschooling came first and how I was broken hearted that it would be so long before I could pursue this inner calling. True to my husband's giftings he immediately bought and gifted me an online herbalism course and I instantly fell in love and knew I wanted this to be the basis of everything.
Since then I have finished two courses and will be pursuing the advanced course while under Naomi as a mentee.
My passions include:
Educating/teaching people how to take their health back into their own hands.
I have done this through hosting herbal workshops in my local area.
Starting a group page that helps people learn how to use herbs in their everyday life for healing and nutrition.
Unraveling complicated long term health problems
Through coaching and one-on-one work, coming up with protocols and lifestyle changes for friends and family
Teaching people how to live a holistic naturally minded lifestyle one step at a time.
Helping consult/coach dozens of people on how to live a more “natural” life.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“After trying a few of Naomi's recommendations I'm feeling some positive changes in just a couple of short weeks. I've been sleeping better & have more energy. After starting the tinctures she suggested I have been able to go without the Advil now for 10 straight days! I still have a long road ahead of me but if I'm feeling this good so soon I can only imagine how I'll feel in a few months! I've been praying for direction regarding my health and I believe I've found the answer! Thank you Naomi and I thank God for putting you in my path!”
“I had asked Naomi about another issue and when I sent her my tongue photo, she immediately asked me about something else that was bothering me that I hadn’t mentioned! This is like a superpower!”
Working with Naomi has been a true blessing! She is very kind, thoughtful, and thorough when discussing your story. She is non judgemental, very easy to talk to even with things most tend to want to keep more private. I absolutely have had a phenomenal experience with her! Can't wait to see what she teaches me next.
