Yemaya Seaweed Company

We ship anywhere!

We harvest seaweed on the Mendocino Coast during the minus tides between April and September.

Before each harvest we give thanks by singing and offering prayers. Our harvesting techniques ensure that the seaweeds thrive year after year.

All of our seaweed is sun dried on tables and hand packaged with love.

Yemaya is the great mother who lives and rules over the seas. Water is essential to life, so without Yemaya, life on earth wouldn't be possible. Although she's maternal and nurturing, she's also fierce. Read more here...
