As some of you may know, I ran a wild-harvested, hand-crafted herbal apothecary for almost five years in Mississippi from 2013-2017 called Sweet Gum Springs Apothecary. You can read more about those days here.
I’ll be posting new herbal preparations on this page as things become available.
The majority of the plant material I work with is wild-crafted from the field & forest. Some herbs come from sustainable growers and are either organic or chemical-free. Great care is taken when wild-harvesting plant material to ensure the sustainability of all plant and tree communities that I work with.
