I am a certified herbalist and life-long artisan with fifteen years experience studying herbs and herbal salve-making. I love to focus on local plants that grow naturally in this area and use traditional techniques. I handpick, hand-process, and slow-dry the herbs. For the salves, I use the traditional method of cold infusion - steeping the fresh herbs in the base oils for a minimum of six weeks. I design all of my own labels and hand-label each balm or tea.
