How it began

The Herbal Cabinet is a Locally-Owned and Operated Business in Saint Petersburg, Florida. The Herbal Cabinet was started in 2012 by Master Herbalist, Jennifer Gilman, after a 26 year career in the Hospitality Industry where she worked in Sales & Marketing for top companies like Starwood and Hyatt.

Since childhood, she remembers always being sick with a cold or flu. After getting “sick and tired” of being on and off antibiotics and many other over-the-counter medications, she began learning more about nutrition and exercise to build her immune system. Although much improved, Jennifer was still not satisfied that every time she got on a plane for business travel, she typically got sick within 24 hours of getting off the plane. Finally in her early 40’s she found the healing benefits of Herbs through a local Herbalist workshop. Since that very day, her thirst for knowledge on Herbal Preparations has been a strong passion, bordering on “An Addiction to learning as much as I can about Healing with Herbs & Pure Essential Oils”.

Jennifer said that she never before had the courage to be an entrepreneur, however, after finding a strong desire in Herbal Healing, she quickly changed her mind. She finished a 3-year Master Herbalist Diploma from The School of Natural Healing and immediately started on her Certification as an Aromatherapist. In the middle of all of this, Jennifer started The Herbal Cabinet and left her other career behind. Growing up in a rural town in Pennsylvania, her parents owned a local Garden Center and Landscape business. These humble beginnings became the roots and foundation for her passion. Jennifer takes much care and pride in preparing her Herbal Products and Gifts made with only the best Organic Ingredients.
