About Mother Earth Essentials
Mother Earth Essentials was founded to share the nature-inspired teachings rooted in the sacred plants of the Medicine Wheel. They have interpreted their offering based on the teachings of the company's founder, Carrie Belcourt-Armstrong, and elder Francis Whiskeyjack (Cree, Saddlelake FN).
Carrie Armstrong comes from a long line of Cree Medicine Women. She started to form the idea for a bath & beauty line business during her first teaching job at Amiskwaciy Academy, where she used traditional plants to connect the students to their history. Prior to teaching, she worked in the beauty and retail industry, and through these combined experiences, lead her to launch her collection of natural products through Mother Earth Essentials.
Carrie has always been passionate about sharing her Indigenous culture and the spiritual properties that have been handed down to her. Her family's natural recipes and plant knowledge has been important for her to share, as her mother and aunt were taken to residential school and the generational teachings were threatened. She has worked with her grandmother, elders, and medicine people to create and grow the foundations for Mother Earth products.
