About

Capturing the Essence of Himalayan Herbs and Hearts

Earthbeats was born while Paige and Nadia were both living and working in Nepal in 2016. Nadia, who is passionate about connecting people and fostering communities was working under a mandate to help herbal entrepreneurs in Nepal to expand their international markets. Paige is passionate about feminism and storytelling and was making short documentary videos and creating marketing plans for the same entrepreneurs. So we got together and started thinking, how can we bring all our passions together in one place and also help out the amazing business men and women of Nepal?

So, Earthbeats was created with the mandate to connect herbal collectors and artisans from Nepal with aromatic and medicinal plant lovers around the world and to share stories and beautiful products through adventurous herb hunting, storytelling and ethical shopping. We started travelling the country, meeting the (predominantly) women collectors and producers of the herbs we use in our products and documenting their lives and processes. The idea was, if you're going to buy a product, we want to be able to tell the story not only of how that product was made, but by who. The impact of these videos quickly surpassed our expectations. We were learning about women's ability to send their children to school because of co-op and scholarship opportunities given by our partners. We fell more and more in love with the project, our partners and their collectors and we hope you will too!

    I have a passion for storytelling and if I can do that through a camera lens, all the better. If I can use these skills to fight for equality and social justice then I’m even happier. Put me somewhere outdoors while I do all this and I’m in nirvana.

    Always seeing a world of possibilities, I tend to dream macro and get involved in quite a few projects. Driven by social justice and fostering a sense of community, I enjoy connecting people and seeing them flourish!
