It all started with a simple "home remedies" book and years of battling with my own endometriosis. I was immediately drawn in to the idea of helping my family and myself and started experimenting in my own life. I chose easy recipes with readily available ingredients and found success pretty quickly. Wound healing poultices, stomach ache teas and simple salves surprised me with their effectiveness!  I became fascinated and threw myself into both folk remedy and science based herbal healing methods.


I have spent almost 20 years learning numerous methods of herbal medicine and aromatherapy.  I hold certifications in Herbal Retail Management, Nutritional Herbalism, Clinical Master Aromatherapy and Clinical Master Herbalism and Flower Essence Practitioner. I am continuing my education with a class on Ayurvedic Herbal Medicine. I am also attending a robust class which will provide a Phytotherapy certification. This clinical focused class will combine all these modalities to help me provide holistic health care in a whole new way.  Mortar and Pestle was born out of my wish to help my community and continue the customs of the wise women that have come before me. I want to bring back the village wise woman tradition one extract at a time! 

Join me as I fulfill my 3 goals: First, I will formulate and make high quality, small batch herbal remedies. Secondly, I wish to help educate myself and others in simple plant wellness and holistic health modalities. And lastly, to encourage a much needed conversation to integrate complementary health options and modern medicine to help us all live healthier and be more balanced in mind, body and spirit. 

Join me in the meadow!
