Mamie’s Way Herbs offers products inspired by the folk healing practices of our ancestors. Long before the emergence of modern pharmaceuticals, women turned to their gardens and wild spaces to find the medicinal plants that would help them tend to their family’s health needs. Named for Carolyn’s own great-great-grandmothers, Mamie’s Way Herbs honors this history by growing the same medicinal plants and creating products that follow in the footsteps of countless generations of women. By incorporating Mamie’s Way products into your own wellness regimen, you become part of this long lineage of healing.
Most of the herbal ingredients used in our products are grown in the Mamie’s Way Garden in Grinnell, Iowa. We use beeswax from Iowa beekeepers. You can read more about the garden and the history that inspires Mamie’s Way, including the origin of the company’s name, elsewhere on our website.
Maintaining our own herbal garden ensures that we can provide you with the freshest ingredients possible. You also can feel confident our herbs have been cared for with love and without the use of pesticides or fertilizers. Growing our own herbs reflects the historical spirit of Mamie’s Way. Like herbalists of the past, Mamie’s Way is a small, home-based producer. This means that our supply is limited. Please be patient if we are out of stock of your favorite product! We assure you that we are working hard to make more salves, balms, sprays, and tinctures for you.
When Mamie’s Way cannot supply our own ingredients — either because the climate of Central Iowa is not suited to their cultivation (looking at you, ginger and turmeric!) or because our own plants are too young to produce a sizable harvest, we order supplies from reputable companies, such as Mountain Rose Herbs.
