Earth Mama

By a mom, for moms

Who They Are

For Melinda Olson, starting Earth Mama was never her intention. In fact, until she had gone through two pregnancies and started studying the healing powers of plant-based, herbal medicine, it wasn’t even a thought that crossed her mind. It all started with her first pregnancy, when her doctor advised she take a pill for her morning sickness. Melinda’s maternal instincts and nursing background told her that it wasn't a good idea to medicate while pregnant. When she started experiencing weight-loss along with her morning sickness, her doctor offered the medicine again. Still, her gut told her it was a bad idea. As it turns out, the medicine was Bendectin, which was later taken off the market because it caused birth defects.

So, she had her first baby in a hospital and her second at home, an environment Melinda says was much more comfortable and peaceful. It was after these pregnancies that Melinda found herself doing what fascinated her: studying plant medicine. She grew her own herbs and learned how to make her own salves, soaps, medicinal teas, and tinctures, all with the power of plants! She started out making herbal medicines for family and friends to treat conditions like morning sickness and heartburn. Soon, her at-home DIY’s flourished into a company known for organic, natural, plant-based remedies for mothers and babies of all stages: Earth Mama.

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

The NSF/ANSI 305: Personal Care Products Containing Organic Ingredients Certification helps to label personal care products that may not be eligible for USDA certification, as they are non-food items. Products are evaluated by an independent organization to assure they contain at least 70% organic ingredients by weight. NSF allows for limited chemical processing that is deemed necessary for the production of certain personal care products.

Products labeled as USDA certified organic contain ingredients that are produced without pesticides, petrochemicals, ionizing radiation, or synthetic preservetives. USDA certified products are categorized into three classifications. Items labeled as “100% Organic” with the USDA seal must only include organic ingredients. Items labeled as “Organic” with the USDA seal must contain at least 95% organically produced ingredients, and cannot contain any of the USDA excluded methods or ingredients. Products labeled as “Made with Organic Ingredients” must contain at least 70% organic ingredients.

This product was made in the United States. Buying locally made items helps to reduce harmful emissions that result from transportation during and after the production process. Purchasing products made in the United States also ensures that the items are produced in ways that meet strict safety and labor standards.
