I offer a variety of seasonal small-batch herbal remedies, using my own homegrown herbs from my herb garden, respectfully and sustainably wild-crafted herbs, or organic herbs from small local farms.

I am available for custom products as well, just go to "Contact" to enquire!
The herbs that I use in my products are all grown without the use of pesticides, and are grown in dirt that has no chemical runoff from area water. Many are also certified organic.
I create my products on corresponding astrological days of the week and during the proper astrological hours, which are aligned with my intent for the product as well as aligned with product ingredients that correspond to certain planets and astrological signs. This creates products that are more effective and potent.
All of my products are tested on a small amount of people to ensure that they actually work! For that matter, most of the products I make are the only products that I will use myself.
My focus and intent are also important in the creation of my products. Positive intentions are infused in my products and I focus on creating positive changes and aspects in your life as my products touch you and as you use them in your own life.
I respect nature when creating products, and I use sustainable sources for my products. If a product I'm using is less sustainable as a whole - I use as little as possible to still create an effective product.
My products are available on Etsy and at local Kansas City area craft shows!
If you are interested in receiving your own personal herbal products or formulations, I am available for assistance!
I cannot provide free advice via email - and that's what consultations are for!
Herbal Standards & Values
This is an excerpt from Karen Bishop, a Clinical Herbalist writing for the Eclectic School of Modern Herbalism.
It’s a thoughtful observation in the loss of herbal wisdom in exchange for the convenience of modern medicine.
This is my personal philosophy, what inspired me to create my small business, and I agree with this profound statement wholeheartedly.
I wish for everyone who crosses my path to enjoy holistic wellness in their everyday life - and I can help!
Wouldn't it be great to know what herbs and supplements you need - and have it all personalized for you?
I am currently available for consultations - check "Consultations" to schedule one at a currently discounted rate!
“I found many turn of the century documents describing effective medicinal uses. I discovered many wonderful fathers of herbalism and eclectic medicine. I found myself fascinated by the information that I learn while reading their documents. To my surprise, the discovery that hit me the hardest in an emotional way was that our federal government once promoted and encouraged the use of herbs and weeds as medicine. I read through almost the entire Bulletin written by Alice Henkel, Assistant in Drug and Medicinal Plant Inventions from the Department of Agriculture and felt a sense of deep betrayal because in this country, we once had knowledge of inexpensive and effective ways to treat ailments with common natural remedies. I am not insinuating that modern medicine has not had wonderful discoveries that have led to life extension and health for so many Americans and people around the world, because I know it has, but it seems to me, after further research, that it has also caused much harm in the pursuit of profit. As I contemplated this bulletin further and read through other old documents, I do believe that modern medicine is wonderful in the treatment of acute illnesses and injuries but falls short in the care of chronic ones.
I never realized how far we have drifted in the field of medicine from our origins and could benefit tremendously from rediscovering the wisdom of many of the herbalist that came before us. I could only imagine how medicine was practiced before the development of the American Medical Association and for-profit pharmaceutical companies, before the invention of commercial farming practices and the “science” of newly created GMO products, before the invention of Industrial Animal Factories and concentrated animal feeding operations, when food, herbs, and weeds were our medicine, and people where not commodities, but humans & individuals."
