Medicinal Earth began in a single moment. I was standing in my garden, feeling emotional and helpless, contemplating the serious health issues both my parents faced.
I looked around at the natural medicines I knew and loved so well, gave my head a shake, and decided to look into making remedies that might give them some relief.
Not too long after, I found myself at a local market with a whole line of products, created from my cultivated or wild harvested medicinals. Medicinal Earth was born and my respect and awe at the power of nature’s medicine took deep root.
The medicinal richness of herbal extracts in liquid concentrate to balance your health and wellness needs.
Herbal medicine as a potent tea & tonic for your hormonal, digestive and detox support. Custom blends available.
Skin and hair care products made from nature’s healing, soothing and nourishing botanicals.
Minimizing impact through small batch full circle waste free artisanal production, closest to source ingredients, respectfully, sustainably, handpicked garden and wild plants and mushrooms, dried or infused with care.
Passionate about bridging current scientific knowledge with the sacred, ancient wisdom, traditions and spiritual reverence.
With deep respect for the offering of Earth’s medicine, harvesting and wild foraging is the foundation of our customized remedies for people and pets.
Closed loop cyclical nature- caring for the land and its biodiversity in turn nourishes our own (composting, companion planting, conservation, respectful harvesting)
With a reverence and deep connection to the Earth as an organic gardener, environmentalist, herbalist, on a shamanic path.
An educator with a background in life sciences and a degree in kinesiology, a deep connection with the land has kept me developing ways to engage young people with the natural world. With a lifetime informally studying nutrition, holistic health and natural medicines, and once a personal trainer and fitness instructor, I attempted to offer options for health and wellness needs not effectively addressed by conventional medicine.
I see our health and wellness and that of the Earth as interconnected, and, my wee business feels in this way, as a small part of the groundswell of initiatives around the world shifting us to collaborative community, integral sustainability, and authentic connection founded on the direct correlation of scientific understanding and sacred reverence for all life.
“OK I am THE best test subject ever! I was working on replacing window and a wasp didn't like us disturbing its home so it stung me just below my eye. I ran in remembering Kym said her wound wash would help with stings. Sprayed that sucker with my eye closed and instant relief! I can feel it but it feels like it was frozen” Thanks!
“I have a skin salve from Kym that was a lifesaver when I smashed my thumb with a hammer (no comments...). The skin was so bruised and tender and the salve soothed and speeded the healing process, it felt better within hours of using it. Thankful for her knowledge and care in creating natural products that are effective.”
Kym at Medicinal Earth puts her heart and soul into creating alchemy with her products. Kym has a deep and passionate connection to plants and with honour and respect transforms them into important healing products. I have personally benefited from her muscle salve, chaga tincture and motherwort tincture. Each one has made a significant difference in creating more balance in my body. I am confident that you will be grateful that you try these high quality remedies heart- and home-made by a powerful wise woman.
The most soothing and long lasting lip balm I have ever used. I have used every single commercial brand and Medicinal Earth beats all others, hands down. Thank you for finally solving the annual dry, painful lip crisis!!!!!
I can't say enough good things about Medicinal Earth. After my grandmother had a lengthly hospital stay and was ridden with bedsores, my aunt suggested we try the Healing Skin Salve instead of the plethora of creams we had bought at the pharmacy. My grandmother noticed the difference instantly and felt relief much faster than we could have hoped for. She already asked for more! I, in turn bought some for myself for my constantly dry and cracking hands due to the Montreal winter and also love the cream and tonic. You can clearly see everything is made with love and care, as mentioned, I can't recommend enough. Thank you!
