Our world is full of plants and fungi that nourish and heal, and we are constantly delighted as we develop our relationships with and understanding of them as individuals and community members of our forest and world. Erin is nearly life-long student of wild medicine and ethnobotanical traditions. She has a bachelor’s degree in anthropology and is currently studying herbalism more formally through The Heart of Herbs Herbal School with Demetria Clarke.
Our herbal products are made using almost entirely local active ingredients selected according to timeless tradition and modern research. Our tinctures are made using spring water diluted grain alcohol or food solvents and we will be including more glycerite options soon! We use organic apple cider vinegar, local honey and beeswax, andorganic and/or non-GMO oils.
We utilize Wolesome Harvest Food Co-op’s health inspected commercial kitchen for preparation. Thank you, Wholesome!
Please do not hesitate to ask us questions about our medicinal offerings. We aim to assist you in taking responsibility for your health, not to profit from any confusion or lack of knowledge. But remember that Erin is a community herbalism, not a doctor!
Herbalism is age-old and has unending variance of perspective and application, and we, like you, are always learning and adapting. We strive to integrate the teachings of our contemporaries, our collective ancestors, and the living world.
There is always more to learn about each plant/mushroom, tradition, or perspective. We offer you our knowledge in this ever-changing moment and hope that it can help you in some aspect of your journey towards greater health.
This sharing of knowledge is for informational purposes only and is not intended to be misconstrued as medical advice. Some plants have a remarkably broad range of traditional/folk/home applications, some backed by research, some supported by consensus, and others less so, but still noteworthy. Just because a plant has been used traditionally for snake bites, for example, does not mean that is an effective treatment for said hypothetical bite, and most certainly does not mean you should use it in place of a trip to the ER or doctor if warranted. You are all intelligent, self possessed folks, and probably don’t need to read any of this, but we all need to remember that taking responsibility for our own health is an actual responsibility. You may, of course, approach herbalism intuitively, but generally speaking, reclaiming your bodily autonomy by addressing your own physical needs is more easily done with a working understanding of how your body and the remedies you choose interact. That’s where research and the good judgement come in! We use doctors when their advice and interventions are warranted!
