Mother Earth Designs, Inc was founded 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 developing comfort products for her patients and massage clients that offer optimum support and the therapeutic qualities of HOT/COLD therapy. Karen found that proper education about using hot and cold therapy is invaluable for the helping treat aches, pain, chronic conditions and End of Life care.



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 Karen desired. As word spread, many came to ask for the 'Pillow-Lady' for products for not only pain but also for comfort and to reduce stress. Karen and her team 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 located in Arnold, MO offered a wide array of Mother Earth Pillows®, natural Self-Care products and therapeutic massage by MO Licensed Massage Therapists, all Nationally Certified.



In August 2015, Karen sold the company to Jeff Evenson, the new owner. Jeff is very excited to grow Mother Earth Pillows into a nationally-recognized, earth-friendly brand carried in major retailers, hospitals and well-known salons and spas. With a background in business ownership in the wellness industry, Jeff has the business acumen and discipline to carry on the great legacy created by Karen for 20 years.
