1. What gave you the passion of starting Earth Mama Angel Baby?
I didn’t originally intend to start an organic herbal manufacturing
company. Every single product I formulated was created to help support
friends and family for one problem or another. So it was created over
time. After my own personal experiences during pregnancy and
breastfeeding, I realized there were no safe, organic products
available to women that combined traditional plant medicine with
I’m a nurse, BSN and have always believed that pregnancy is a natural,
normal state of wellness. I also believe that the common discomforts
associated with childbirth and postpartum recovery have been supported
by women using plant medicine, very safely, for a very, very long
time. Morning sickness, heartburn, hemorrhoids, cracked nipples, etc.
can all be safely supported with herbs.
Q. What was your biggest inspiration?
My inspiration was the plants themselves. I spent over two years every
day in the garden tending plants, drying, macerating, blending and
formulating. I learned how to make soap, salves and how to blend herbs
to maximize their efficacy. And I got to play in the dirt – nature is
2. Do you grow your own garden?
Yes, it used to be the source for our organic herbs, but Earth Mama
Angel Baby has grown a little beyond what my garden can produce! My
garden is my sanctuary, and I go there for peace, restoration and
3. What are you favorite herbs?
I love all herbs, but if I had to choose it would be the medicinal
herbs. Just the idea that the plant world is a marvelous herbal
medicine cabinet is wonderful to me.
4. Why are those your favorite herbs?
I love that generations of people have known what herbs do, and that
we can harness the amazing medicinal qualities and goodness of herbs
for natural healing of many of the common physical discomforts people
5. What’s your favorite product in your line?
Ach! That’s like asking me who is my favorite child! I love them all,
of course. And they are always, always being refined, revised and
improved every time we have newer empirical knowledge or research
information. But I will say that I still have a jar of Angel Baby
Bottom Balm that is almost 10 years old (and it is glorious) – it was
the first balm I formulated and still pretty spectacular. I’ve seen
the ingredient list on other people’s products, but over the years
I’ve done very little to alter the original formula. It’s safe and it
6. What would you recommend for expecting mothers?
Be healthy, be wonderful to yourself, sleep all you can and if you
want to choose safer baby products, if you want to cloth diaper, if
you’re planning on breastfeeding, start doing your research now, since
once the baby comes you’ll probably be busier than you though you’d
7. What would you recommend for postpartum mothers?
We love this invaluable piece of advice around Earth Mama Angel Baby:
Sleep when the baby sleeps, clean when the baby cleans.
8. What certifications do you carry?
Earth Mama is a USDA certified
organic manufacturing facility.
9. We’d love to congratulate you on your new grand baby boy that’s due
in the Spring. Are you an excited grandma?
Am I?! I’ve got 3 GORGEOUS grandbabies and one on the way – each time
a new one is born, I fall in love all over again.
