In 2002, she began making and sharing organic tinctures, teas, soaps, and salves using self-grown herbs. These were safe formulations grounded in earth wisdom and ancient knowledge — and they worked. Melinda had a feeling the world was ready for this kind of medicine — especially pregnant women, postpartum women, and their babies. And thus, Earth Mama the Company was born. The right way: in a garage. Earth Mama Organics makes clean, safe, and effective herbal solutions for the entire journey of motherhood, including pregnancy, breastfeeding and baby care, and even the loss of a baby. Trusted by doctors, midwives, neonatal intensive care units, lactation consultants, and mamas worldwide, Earth Mama combines generations of women’s wisdom, traditional herbal remedies, and evidence-based research to formulate certified organic herbal tea, soaps, balms, lotions, soothing sprays, and the first Non-GMO Project Verified nipple cream.
