She recognized the need for reliable health information while supporting friends through unique health challenges and refocused her career to bring clarity and compassion to healthcare communications.

In 1987, Gaia Herbs was founded with a mission to create healing by connecting people, plants, and the planet. If companies have their own language for expressing love, herbs would be our love language. We show our love through the organic herbs we grow to provide you with high-quality herbal supplements that promote overall wellness. 

But like any compassionate individual, we express our devotion in many ways.

In his book, “The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts,” Gary Chapman identified five love languages — Acts of Service, Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, and Physical Touch. Gaia Herbs embraces some of each of these languages to fully share our love with every person looking for a way to support their health with herbs.

Acts of Service: Gaia Herbs' Commitment to Healing

If we had to choose just one of Chapman’s five love languages, Gaia Herbs' primary one is Acts of Service. Our business decisions are guided by our commitment to people, planet, and purpose — not by profits alone.

Just as acts of service in human relationships demonstrate care and support, Gaia Herbs offers a diverse range of products, each meticulously crafted to provide specific benefits to meet your unique health needs, from immune, respiratory, and cognition support to stress relief and better sleep. 

If your love language is Acts of Service, you’ll appreciate the level of care we put into producing the highest quality of herbs and formulations. We manage every step of the supply chain, from the seeds started in our 60,000 square-foot greenhouse, to the plants grown on our 350-acre Certified Organic farm in North Carolina, to the 150 or more ingredients we source from herbal farms around the world that share our commitment to quality, sustainability and ethicality. 

We rigorously test our products to make sure they are not only safe for you and the environment but that every ingredient listed on the label is in the bottle or package. Every member of our team takes pride in serving our customers with high-quality herbal supplements.

Gift Giving: The Bounty of Nature's Gifts

Gaia Herbs recognizes that the natural world is abundant with gifts. Our product offerings are a reflection of the diverse gifts nature gives us, which we, in turn, share with you in the form of 

supplements to support your health.

When you choose Gaia Herbs' herbal products, you're unwrapping the bounty of nature's gifts — an ideal way to feel the love if your love language is Receiving Gifts. From adaptogenic herbs that help your body adapt to stress to herbs that support digestive health, Gaia Herbs' dedication to providing a wide range of herbal supplements ensures there's a gift from nature for everyone. Whether you're seeking support for energy, sleep, digestion, or something else, our products are a testament to the generosity of the natural world.

Words of Affirmation: The Language of Healing

Is your love language Words of Affirmation? Gaia Herbs understands the importance of positive affirmations in the healing process. Words can express love, but they also have the power to soothe, inspire, and motivate. When you choose a Gaia Herbs product, you receive not just a supplement, but also the information you need to support your health care decisions.

We take the time to explain the science behind our herbal supplements and make complex concepts easy to understand. It’s one more way we show you how much we care.

Quality Time: Nurturing our Relationship with Plants

Just as you may consider quality time as the greatest demonstration of someone’s affection, Gaia Herbs believes that giving our plants our undivided attention enables us to deliver nature’s gifts to you. Each of our farm workers and the farmers we work with around the globe tend their plants with care, ensuring they receive the right amount of sunlight, water, nourishment, and time to provide their full healing potential. 

The more focus we give our plants, the greater benefits you experience from our products, and the deeper our connection becomes. We certainly hope this is a relationship that lasts a long time.

Physical Touch: The Healing Touch of Nature

For those whose love language is physical touch, we express ours through the healing touch of nature.

Imagine holding a warm cup of herbal tea on a chilly evening, feeling the soothing warmth spread through your body. Gaia Herbs' tinctures, capsules, and teas touch your body and mind in profound ways.

Customers often share testimonials about the tangible benefits they've experienced from Gaia Herbs' products. Improved sleep, increased energy, and enhanced libido are common themes. 

Through herbs, Gaia Herbs is not only connecting people, plants, and the planet but we’re working to foster a deeper understanding of the profound relationship between humanity and nature. Whether your own love language is Acts of Service, Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, or Physical Touch, Gaia Herbs speaks your love language and serves to guide you on your journey to well-being.
