We’re on a mission. It’s a simple mission, but one that will take a lot of time and a lot of work — and we’d love for you to join us.
We believe that health is sacred, and so very personal. Every individual should be empowered to care for him or herself and take care of his/her body alone…at least, most of the time.
Many health modalities exist, yet the Western world is dominated by just one of them: allopathic. There’s absolutely a time and place for this system, but it’s not always the best option.
Further, many people feel scared of exploring alternatives. They’ve been told they don’t work, or are dangerous. They’ve been disempowered from caring for themselves and their families, even when it comes to the simple stuff. And some families have even been bullied or mistreated by this system.
It’s time for a change.
At Earthley, we want to be part of that change. It’s our goal to educate and empower people to take care of their own health. And, because access to health-promoting products matters as much as education, we produce herbal remedies and body care that support health — naturally.
Back in 2009, our owner, Kate, had a baby with lots of food allergies and health challenges. This meant that she (the baby) suffered from chronic diarrhea, constant diaper rash, and eczema.
Kate ran her from doctor to doctor, none of whom knew how to help. They all suggested things that either didn’t work or made it worse.
The last straw was when one doctor prescribed an antibiotic cream for the baby’s diaper rash. Not only did it not help the rash, it flared her eczema!
That was it. Kate knew that there had to be something better that this! So, she dove into research, and created her first herbal remedy: a diaper cream.
This cream actually worked. It cleared up the rash in hours, with no side effects. It was pretty awesome! (This formula eventually turned into our All-Purpose Salve.)
Over the next several years, Kate studied herbs, learned from other herbalists, and created more and more natural remedies for her own family — and then, her friends and community. She hosted DIY nights and taught others to prepare herbal remedies. She published some of her recipes and a lot of her research at Modern Alternative Mama to teach the wider community about natural health.
In 2014, Kate was approached by Fair Winds Press to use her extensive knowledge to create a book of natural remedies for families. In August of 2015, her book, Natural Remedies for Kids, launched. Co-written by board-certified pediatrician and father of 8, Dr. Bob Zajac, the book has become a staple for people who are new to natural remedies.
In the fall of 2016, Earthley — as it is today — was born. It had been Kate, and her husband Ben’s, dream to open a business, making natural products for others, and sharing their passion for natural health. The time was finally right.
In the years since, Earthley has grown rapidly, as thousands of customers have found that our remedies and body care are simple, clean, and they work.
At the heart of what we do is our commitment to producing 100% clean, natural products. We don’t (and won’t) use any compromising ingredients. Everything on our labels is recognizable, because it’s all about using whole and unprocessed plant materials.
This allows us to produce remedies and body care that are extremely safe, as well as extremely effective — for the whole family.
We do everything ourselves, with absolutely no outsourcing to a third party, because it’s important to us to know that the products we’re selling are truly clean — no surprises, no chance for mistakes or accidentally using “wrong” ingredients.
We couldn’t do what we do without our entire team (and family!).
Kate and Ben are parents to 6 children, ranging from 14 years down to 4.5 years. They are a homesteading, homeschooling family who have an extensive garden, including herbs! They love teaching their kids to enjoy and be good stewards of the Earth, on and off the job.
The Earthley team includes 70+ full- and part-time employees, and is growing constantly! The team works tirelessly to create all our products, as well as package them, label them, ship them, and handle customer service. They also help with social media and marketing.
We’re a family company, and a family-friendly company. Work schedules are flexible and we offer a homeschool group to support families who are also homeschooling!
We’re so glad that you have taken a few minutes of your valuable time to read more about us and our humble company, and important mission.
We have a couple of gifts for you: free downloadable printables, to help you get started with practical, healthy changes to your life.
Grab one, or grab them all. We hope you love them as much as we do.
