herbs for sale

why plant medicine? because, as one of my teachers said, people should have choices. for me, it's about reconnecting and building a deeper sense of trust with nature. if you're curious about how i went from mean-mugging plants, to sitting with them and telling them my fears, i wrote about it here

herbs are exciting to me because they work with our body's special blueprint for healing. aka, they just get us. herbs heal by bringing our bodies back into balance.

for example, some herbs (called adaptogens) work gently with our bodies to 'adapt' to stress by shifting our stress response. tulsi (also known as holy basil) is an adaptogenic herb i took daily in tincture form to help ground me in the present and clear mental fog. after two months, i was so surprised that i felt more mental clarity and ease in sharing my ideas with others. of course, the magic of an herb is when we notice that it actually works! 

if you are taking prescription medication, i ask that you check in with your practitioner and do your research about potentially harmful drug/plant interactions.
