Mother Earth Designs, Inc began in 1995 in Arnold, MO by Karen Kowal, a Registered Nurse and Nationally Certified Massage Therapist. Karen was actively involved for 30 years in the field of nursing, then became a Massage Therapist in 1994. She had searched for natural products for her own use after dealing with personal chronic pain. As her practice grew after 1994, she began creating and developing more product designs for her clients, family and friends.
Using an old Singer Sewing machine in the basement, drying herbs from her own garden, the early years were spent creating consistent designs, finding quality raw materials and fabric that met the quality level she desired. As word spread, more folks came to ask for the 'Pillow-Lady' for products for not only pain but also for comfort and to reduce stress of everyday. Karen and her daughter Nicole worked for two years from her home. But eventually, the business grew and it was time to move to a commercial location. This location lasted for 9 years.
In 2007, a new location was found for production and office space... and a separate Retail and Massage location was opened. Mother Earth Natural Solutions is located in Arnold, MO and offers a wide array of Mother Earth Pillows®, natural Self-Care products and therapeutic massage by MO Licensed Massage Therapists, all Nationally Certified. We would love to have you stop by!
