Modern women are exposed to extraordinary amounts of toxins, pollution and known carcinogens. Due to these contaminants in our environment, many of us are facing health challenges in our breasts. Reducing pollution in our environment, eating a mineral-rich, organic plant-based diet, getting plenty of exercise and rest, and regular breast care (through touch, massage, and self exams) will all help to support breast health. Earthen Heart Botanicals is dedicated to promoting women’s health and encouraging women to be more familiar with their bodies. Our breast care line helps to reduce fear and heighten women’s awareness of the importance of breast health. 

All of our products are made by hand, beginning by infusing organic or ethically wildcrafted herbs into organic olive oil, chosen for its ability to extract the healing components of plants.  Because breast skin is thin and absorbent, the herbal constituents carried in the olive oil can move deeply into the breast tissue, helping to promote breast health.
