Balancing Modern Life with Traditional Wisdom

WHO WE ARE
Hi! I'm Mara. I'm a researcher, healer, mother and creative medicine maker. I'm also the owner of Urban Earth Teas and Wellness. More officially, I am a Clinical Herbal Therapist, Clinical Aromatherapist and Integrative Sleep Coach. (For more detailed information about my training and the other services I offer, head over to www.urbanearth.ca)

As the sole owner of Urban Earth Teas and Wellness, I create, blend and package all of the teas and aromatherapy products that are offered on this site (I'm also the official taste tester...which just might be the best part of the job...). I also formulate all of the personalized formulas.

WHAT WE DO:
Urban Earth Teas and Wellness provides research-based products and services created with love using holistic practices and natural ingredients. Our teas, and aromatherapy products contain organic, fair trade ingredients with no artificial flavours or additives, just exceptional tastes, vibrant colours and luscious scents.

THE STORY BEHIND URBAN EARTH TEAS AND WELLNESS

I first became interested in blending teas while training as a clinical herbalist. What first began as a convenient way to administer herbal remedies, soon became more of an outlet for creativity. Putting together a blend that simply “got the job done” just wasn’t enough. I wanted to create a blend that was not only therapeutically effective – but that tasted good, and looked beautiful!

When my daughter was born, I decided to step away from my private practice for a couple of years and develop the retail aspect of my business (as this was something I could do from home). This gave me the opportunity to start experimenting with different types of teas, such as black and green teas, rooibos and maté (not to mention fruits, nuts, citrus rinds…oh my!). Having a newborn also gave me a new appreciation of caffeinated beverages….

Now that I have re-opened my practice, I have expanded my retail offerings to include other products to help support your healing journey, including aromatherapy products, supplements, and some basic wellness protocols (available at www.urbanearthteas.ca)

MORE ABOUT MARA (the important stuff)

I'm the mother of one beautiful, sassy daughter, a quirky dachshund and a very patient cat. I love chocolate, bees, Mr Darcy and Earl Grey tea. I probably have a book about any topic you can think about. My favourite movies are Pride and Prejudice (the 1995 version with Colin Firth....obviously...) and any Ghibli movie (especially Howl's Moving Castle). I teach bellydance and crochet in my spare time (but not at the same time...) and my favourite colours are turquoise and purple.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Frequently asked questions
Do you offer free shipping?

I do not offer free shipping at this time. As a small business, shipping is not free to me... and I just don't believe in artificially inflating the cost of my products to cover the cost of shipping. I currently use calculated shipping, which means that you are only charged what I am charged for shipping.

How do you choose your ingredients?

Because the ingredients I use come from many different areas in the world, I source my ingredients from several different places. All ingredients adhere to the following standards:

Grown Without Chemicals: All ingredients are either certified organic, grown without chemicals or ethically wild crafted.

Fair Trade: Wherever applicable, I choose ingredients are certified fair trade. This includes all of the cacao products, as well as the exotic spices such as vanilla, cinnamon, cloves and black pepper.

Plant is not at Risk: none of my products contain ingredients derived from species that are listed as endangered, threatened or at risk.

Do your teas contain any additives?

None of my products contain any artificial flavours, colours, fragrances, binders or preservatives. I use herbs, fruit and essential oils to flavour and scent my products.

In order to the completely transparent, I'd like to point out that there are four products in my tea line that contain "organic natural flavour." These include the Blackberry Caramel Pu-erh (organic caramel flavour), Cherry Cobbler (organic caramel flavour), Lavender Bliss (organic black currant flavour) and Radiance (organic peach flavour). These are 100% certified organic and do not contain any artificial ingredients.

Custom and personalised orders

Yes - I love custom orders! I have over 15 years blending experience and love to create teas that are a perfect fit for an individual or event.
