Baby Brand Spotlight: Earth Mama
Meet Earth Mama Organics
Earth Mama Organics was founded by Melinda Olson, the original Earth Mama. A nurse, mother, and grandmother, Melinda is also a plant lady/gardener and avid herbalist. In the spring of ’97, Melinda began studying medicinal herbs and how to extract their healing powers — which led to planting, nurturing, and harvesting a wide variety of herbs to study how best to harvest their healing essence. What was once a hobby “blossomed” into a life-changing understanding of plant medicine.
In 2002, Melinda began making and sharing organic tinctures, teas, soaps, and salves using self-grown herbs. These were formulations grounded in earth wisdom and ancient knowledge, and they worked. Melinda had a feeling the world was ready for these kinds of remedies, specially pregnant and postpartum women, their babies, and their families. There is even a line of products to comfort and support women who have suffered baby loss. And thus, Earth Mama the Company was born.
Earth Mama Organics’ Core Beliefs
Do No Harm
This company will go to great lengths to ensure its customers are safe and unharmed by their products. Therefore, they endlessly rethink, reevaluate, research, and reformulate. If there’s a safer way, they’ll find it.
Nature is Their Pharmacy
Grandmothers, mothers, and daughters have known this since the beginning of time: medicine is abundant in nature, and they believe there’s a plant to help with every ailment. That ancient wisdom hasn’t changed — and herbal remedies still work today.
All mothers are powered by love and em-powered by knowledge. Education is in our DNA. The more we all know, the better equipped we are to make choices that safely nurture our bodies and the environment.
Honor the Body’s Ingenuity
Our body can already breathe, beat its heart, and grow babies with little to no effort on our part. It also can compensate for everyday toxins. But like all systems, it can become overloaded and fail. So every ingredient in every Earth Mama product is consciously chosen to avoid adding to our body’s toxic load and to allow our bodies to find their innate state of wellness.
Mamas Need One Another
We all share something: we want our children to be happy and healthy. We celebrate motherhood as the basis for helping to create and nurture a greater sense of community and support because, as it turns out, we’re in this together. This company, like KeaBabies, strives to help women find and support each other in a world where collaboration is more critical than ever.
