Asa part of my series about the women in wellness, I had the pleasure of interviewing Heather Logrippo. Heather is an Entrepreneur and the Founder of both Mom Bombs and MomBombs.org, a luxury bath bomb company and its sister giving organization (respectively). As a young executive, she developed the innovative tactics that helped grow a $1,000,000 company into a $500,000,000 company within seven years. After much success, she left that business, bought Distinctive Homes Magazine, and saved that publication using social media strategies that were, at the time, revolutionary. Now, Heather is hoping to help even more people with Mom Bombs — a luxury bath bomb brand that gives back to mothers in need by donating $5 of every box to its sister giving organization, MomBombs.org.


Thank you so much for doing this with us! What is your “backstory”?

In2017 I was struck down with what I can only describe as headaches that felt like I was giving birth out of the left side of my head. It was the most agonizing pain I’d ever been in. (I’ve gone through childbirth twice and that was nothing compared to this!). The situation devolved into seizures and eventually, the ability to stand or walk. After no less than 10 doctors assessments and MRI’s that could find nothing wrong, a resident did some digging and found, via a 3D MRI, an inflamed trigeminal nerve that was causing this crisis.

During this time, being sick was a full-time job. I owned two businesses and couldn’t operate either. I could barely speak, my head and face were in constant agony. We were in financial free fall and I made a promise to myself that I was going to use this experience to help others who find themselves in a similar situation and need to take control of their wellness.

There were a few critical things I did during the tenuous time, that truly made a difference to my health and wellbeing. I’m excited to bring these wellness opportunities to everyone, no matter what the situation.

Can you share your top three “lifestyle tweaks” that you believe will help support people’s journey towards better wellbeing?

First and foremost — healthcare and well-being is not a one size fits all solution. Each person is unique and requires personalized programs that address their specific needs. I’ve found what works to help with my condition, but that doesn’t mean it will be the same program that helps others.

We’ve found that CBD is a huge help in combating myriad of issues. The endocannabinoid system is something that every person has, but it’s not even taught in medical school. CBD does an amazing job with pain management through the endocannabinoid system that every human has.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started your career?

In the beginning, we didn’t have distribution for our products, so we just put them up on Amazon as a start. Well, for some reason, Amazon sorted us on page 1 during the holiday season and we ended up selling so much product that larger retailers came calling. It was amazing, really.

Can you share a story about the biggest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?

I’ve made SO many mistakes, and continue to do so, but it’s part of the process so I try to remember that this is a journey and to enjoy all steps of the process, even when making mistakes. The biggest one was starting with the wrong manufacturer. I didn’t know enough to know what I should be looking for. I began to enter into an agreement with a company that was showing signs of trouble, and thank goodness for my tribe, an in this case, business attorney as he found me a much more reputable manufacturer that we have had immense success with.

When it comes to health and wellness, how is the work you are doing helping to make a bigger impact in the world?

We have created a non profit to help women who are sick, get through the crisis of dealing with everything that comes with an illness. Whether we provide meal services, laundry service, housekeeping or childcare, each of the people we help are in desperate need of assistance in keeping their lives together while they go through this extremely tough time in life.

Because we are using our products as the funding mechanism for helping people, we basically reverse engineered the fundraising process.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story about that?

There is a very special person who never gets the credit for my success, however is 100% responsible for it and that is my husband. He clears everything out of my way so I can focus on being the best me, because, no matter what (and even I think he’s crazy) he likes the authentic, real me. No one in my life has ever loved me for me before this man. I owe EVERYTHING to him. I’d be lost without him.

If you could start a movement that would bring the most amount of wellness to the most amount of people, what would that be?

There’s a movement going on now, it’s grassroots but it’s incredible. It’s called United States Consumer Healthcare Advocacy Group or USCHAG. It’s putting the power of healthcare back in the hands of the American consumer and giving every American an advocate, someone who is looking out solely for them during the often confusing healthcare maze.

What are your “5 Things I Wish Someone Told Me Before I Started” and why?

1) Let go of your ego. It will NEVER serve you

2) Do what you love. Don’t ever accept money. Money will find you.

3) Don’t deny someone opportunity just because they don’t fit your perception of what someone should be

4) Strive to live a life where you can be non-transactional.

5) You’re on the right path, don’t be scared.

Sustainability, veganism, mental health and environmental changes are big topics at the moment. Which one of these causes is dearest to you, and why?

All of them are important to me. Everything we need to survive comes from the Earth. Food is medicine and health starts with what we consume. It’s all intertwined.
