Mother Earth Oils & Herbs originated in 1999, in our kitchen, after hours. My daughter Summer and I had a dream: To create a Website dedicated to selling natural, handmade product ranging from Soaps to Cloaks! Then in late 2002, we found the cutest little 400 sq ft shop in The Old City, in Knoxville, TN and we filled it with wonderful herbs, essential oils, soaps, lotions, candles, paintings from local artists, handmade jewelry, and handmade cloaks!
From there it grew to holding Meditation and Reiki classes on a very small level, after normal store hours. When the need became too great, the Universe directed us to find a larger affordable space by the owners selling the building we rented! That was OK!! Within a month we were in a larger space in a beautiful Victorian House located at the Worlds’ Fair Park on 11th Street. Within that year, we occupied both floors and had the building to ourselves, where we held larger classes in Yoga, Drum Circles, Tarot readings, and special events.
That space was enjoyed until Sept 2005, when the city of Knoxville sold the beautiful houses on “Victorian Row” to a developer who informed us that we were welcome to stay…at the cost of quadruple our rent…so…back to the Website!
And since that time, Summer has created her own wonderful “Dreamspirations Gallery” blog and Etsy site, where she creates paperclay creations, and crochet product. She has become quite the Doll Artist with coverage in Doll Magazines. You can see her work here: http://www.dreamspirationsgallery.blogspot.com/ and http://www.etsy.com/shop/Dreamspirations?ref=pr_shop_more.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have an enjoyable shopping experience!
