Our Story

Feeling is believing.

1957

The Beginnings

Susan Camille was the daughter of an agriculture teacher and newspaper editor. She grew up in small towns throughout rural Idaho. From her early childhood, such appreciation of all plant types contributed to her philosophy that flowers and weeds are nature’s helpers to aid and heal us.

Europe

As a young adult, Susan spent eight years traveling through Europe, living the life of an artist. Much of her time was spent studying art history and techniques, while learning how to make painting supplies from scratch and diving further into her herbal studies.

Camille Beckman Founded

Equipped with a lifetime of experience gathering information on botany, extracting, and creating exquisite fragrances, Susan moved back to Idaho in 1986 to start Camille Beckman. Creating work for a forgotten demographic, she hired mothers who wanted to use their hands for creative work and provide additional income for their families.
