Meet the Mama! Earth Mama’s Melinda Olson
Nurse, herbalist, and real-life mother Melinda Olson began formulating organic herbal remedies for friends in her Oregon kitchen many years ago. Her love of organic gardening, passion for herbs, and desire to find safe products for mamas and babies led to founding Earth Mama, an industry leader in safe, natural and organic herbal products.
Melinda is a true believer in the healing power of nature, and continually balances her trust and care of traditional herb wisdom with evidence-based research. For over a decade Earth Mama has been supporting mamas and babies through the entire miraculous birth process, offering nature’s perfect solutions to perfectly natural pregnancy, postpartum, breastfeeding and baby care discomforts.
Earth Mama is obsessed with product safety, and every Earth Mama product is toxin-free, rated 1 for toxins on EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database. Made without synthetic fragrance, phthalates or parabens and no petroleum products, mineral oil, Vitamin E or dyes. Just safe, worry-free ingredients.
And worry-free is why several hospital systems have chosen Earth Mama products to replace those containing toxic ingredients for perinatal, newborn and even NICU patients. From a toxin-free diaper protocol for fragile NICU babies, to safe products for breastfeeding mamas and baby’s first bath, nurses who successfully greened their hospital system named Earth Mama as a safer alternative.
Safety is a serious business, and Earth Mama’s mission has always been to formulate safe, herbal products that work, even voluntarily submitting products for third party verification to be sure every batch is Safe as Mama’s Arms. Why bother? Because Mama is a real person — a nurse, herbalist, mother and grandmother –and she truly takes babies’ safety to her heart. The sentiment behind Mama’s Promise is true, “If it doesn’t measure up to Mama’s standards it doesn’t leave the building.”
