Organically grown medicinal herbal products and botanical skincare. All small batched and made by your local Herbalist Erin Ethier.
Hi, my name is Erin Ethier. I am the owner and herbalist at Earthly Remedies. About 17 years ago I was diagnosed with MS and ever since then I decided I had to take better care of myself and that meant changing how I ate and what I exposed myself to. That is what really started this journey for me. Around the same time I had my first son and then 3 years later had my second son. My younger son ended up having a bunch of allergies and I found that making my own products for him seemed to help resolve a lot of the issues he was having. I stopped buying cleaning products, lotions, bubble baths, and soaps and made my own. I simplified things a lot and started making most of my own botanical skincare products just for our family. That eventually grew into what has become Earthly Remedies!
I studied and took Rosemary Gladstar's Science and Art of Herbalism. I took the Herbal Academy Advanced Herbal Course for clinical herbalist and I have studied under Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower and I continue to work with her. I am a member of the American Botanical Council, The herb society of America, United Plant Savers, and the American Herbalist Guild.
Earthly Remedies makes an all-natural line of organic and locally made herbals and botanical skincare and body-care products. I also see a small number of clients and do some herbalist consulting. My products include, but aren't limited to, herbal tinctures/extracts, herbal syrups, herbal teas, deodorants, lip-balms, herbal salves, hand and body creams, tooth powder, eczema creams, dry shampoo, herbal buckwheat bags, baby products, pet products, wool dryer balls, and much more. They are made with products such as local beeswax, organic Shea butter, organic cocoa butter, our own raw honey, a variety of organic essential oils, and organic herbs that I grow and forage myself. Everything is made fresh in small batch with all-natural materials.
I am committed to providing products that are 100% natural, 100% chemical free, and mostly all organic (which means no petroleum, no preservatives, no parabens, no GMOs, no synthetic fragrances, and no stabilizers). I do not test on animals and none of the raw materials that I source are tested on animals. I use as much recycled packaging as I can. The only animal-based product that is used is beeswax - I do not use any other animal based products in my products line. My goal is to do no harm to both the environment and to our bodies. You can rest assured that when you purchase a product with the Earthly Remedies name that you are supporting a small business that truly cares about you and the environment.
Business Practices and Ingredients: I use a large selection of organic herbs that I grow or forage or source from organic suppliers that I trust such as foster farm botanicals, tooth of the lion, and barefoot botanicals. I try to source as many ingredients as I can from local suppliers whenever possible. I source my gluten-free and organic alcohol from a company out in Mass that I purchase from. I purchase my organic buckwheat from the Finger Lakes. We use wool that is local from Schoharie County and from Maine. Essential oils and carrier oils are purchased from highly reputable organic suppliers such as Florahana and Mountain Rose Herbs. I use organic fabric. I purchase most of my labels, design work, and packaging from small local companies. When I run out of my own beeswax I purchase it from a local source. Whenever possible I limit the use of packaging materials to help protect the environment, we also reuse all of the packaging material that we get in with shipments.
