Earth Mama

Melinda Olson is the original Earth Mama. A nurse, mother, and grandmother, Melinda is also a plant lady/gardener and avid herbalist. Her interest was fueled by a deep desire to educate people about our body’s innate ability to find homeostasis and to use plants to help nudge them back into balance. As humans, we have the opportunity to live long and healthy lives, as long as we avoid harming ourselves — and the earth— in the process. Why not heal and support our bodies with what nature has readily available. Through this knowledge and her passion about the herbal medicines, 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— especially pregnant and postpartum women, their babies, and their families.
