Greetings. My name is Akin Olokun. I am an Herbalist, Holistic Entrepreneur, and Visionary. I’m the founder of Earth’s Healing Café, Mindful Herbals, and Olokun Products.
I was born on a farm in the beautiful mountains of Southern Poland. My grandfather was a beekeeper who cultivated medicinal plants, flowers, and fruits. I spent my childhood playing in the garden, climbing trees, and picking berries and other native foods. At sixteen, I relocated to Indianapolis, United States. Four years later, I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and started an herbal company that served as an outlet for over thirty therapeutic herbal formulations that I had developed. Soon after moving to Chicago, Illinois, the company evolved into Earth’s Healing Café, becoming one of the City’s first establishments to carry raw, organic cold-pressed juices, superfood smoothies, live food, and herbal remedies. In 2014, the company grew to two locations–on Chicago’s North Side, and in the heart of the busy city.
Earlier, in my late teenage years, I had begun my quest for self-discovery which has led me to the path of non-duality, and eventually, to the realization of the meaning of life. I share the message of Natural Health & Hygiene, Simplicity, Compassion, Mindfulness, and Intelligent Living through various outlets including social media and direct interactions with individuals.
