I wanted to create products that were 100% natural, versatile, highly effective, but yet gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin.
I’m Nancy O’Reilly and I am a child of the Earth. For as long as I can remember, my heart has been with the Earth. My father built a small cabin in the northern New Mexico mountains, and I spent my time on weekends, holidays and summers hiking, fishing, and exploring the high altitude beauty. Through this great classroom, I learned to listen to the sounds of the different birds, the rain falling in the pine forest, and the thunder that would often shake the building as it echoed down the canyon. In 1984 moved to Los Angeles to study and work in the clothing industry. I eventually made my way to San Francisco to work, and it was there that I met my Irishman. We married and moved to Ireland in 1995. I have 3 beautiful children and 4 dogs. In 2017 I founded Herbal Earth to provide natural solutions to common problems. These first products are still going strong, a Talc-free Powder and a Natural Deodorant. In 2018 I received a Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation from the prestigious Formula Botanica. Using this knowledge, I created a beautiful range of skincare for sensitive skin.
Then in 2020, my world fell apart. My beloved and my strongest supporter was given a terminal diagnosis. He passed away in October. So this last year has led me to do some thinking. What is important to me? Where do I want to take my company, if at all? Herbal Earth is now a true reflection of who I am. I’ve reformulated and stripped back. Because honesty is essential to me, I sent my new formula to be tested in a laboratory for efficacy. Science has shown that the formula does what I knew it would, but I wanted the customer to know that too. I endeavour to make skincare genuinely eco-friendly. So that’s who I am, a child of the Earth, a mother, a widow and the founder and formulator of Herbal Earth. I warmly welcome you to Herbal Earth. Natural | Honest | Gentle
