A Blessed Samhain to All! Gather around as I introduce you to the mysterious and magnetic Heather Sage!

Whenever I spend even a smidgen of time with Heather I am surprised and delighted of a new perspective or talent she has hidden up her sleeve. I know you all are, (or will be, as well!)
Heather Sage is passionate about receiving and sharing the teachings of plants on a somatic level. How does interacting with this plant inform and facilitate sensation and embodiment? How can the lessons and abilities of our plant kin be integrated into our human experience of being? She loves to swim and explore in the confluence of inner and outer ecology, to dance in the edges where science, tradition, intuition, and sensation meet. Heather graduated from the Advanced Clinical Herbalist training at the Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine in 2017 and continues to draw from diverse studies in yoga, myofascial bodywork, emotional integration, tantra, breathwork, dance, and creative arts to inform her work with clients. She is writing a novel during National Novel Writing Month (November!) and it will mostly be fueled by dates dipped in ghee.
We are intrigued and excited to see the ways in which Heather Sage and The Medicine Tree will together weave the wondrous web of plant connection and community healing.
Thank you Heather Sage, we love you! ❤️ #witchshop #apothecary #somaticherbalism #magicalhumans #themedicinetree #communityherbalism #herbwitch

We are spending the morning processing ALL the Hawthorn medicines! Hawthorn berry brandy, Hawthorn berry honey, Hawthorn berry elixir, Hawthorn berry + leaf + flower tincture, and Hawthorn + Rosehip + Schisandra berry solid extract! Whew! 🍒
Do you love and/or work with Hawthorn medicine? What's your favorite preparation? 🍒
We were dispensing many extracts last night in the free clinic with Hawthorn in them. We love using Hawthorn as an energetic balm to slather on a raw, grieving heart, as an ally for those who are experiencing heartbreak of all kinds. Hawthorn's tart flavor and astringent impression make it a cooling and tonifying plant medicine that has an affinity for the physical heart muscle, making it a wonderful accompaniment to any heart-healthy regimen. 🍒
Packed full of B vitamins, vitamin C, and incredibly high in bioflavonoids, makes Hawthorn a safe, food-like choice for many~ which are our favorite kind of plant of plant medicines! 🌿


Hawthorn is a magical, sacred tree in the Celtic tradition and is commonly associated with the faery realm. It is said that if you sleep under the Hawthorn tree when the veil is thin, (commonly during Beltane or Samhain,) the fae-folk will steal you away to their realm never to return! ✨

Hawthorn has been written about by many herbalists throughout history and some of our favorite accounts are from Asia Suler @onewillow_apothecaries in her class: Herbs for the Otherworld (a timely read, for sure!) a plant walk video from jim mcdonald, and an materia medica musing from Robin Rose Bennett in her book The Gift of the Healing Herbs~ and that's just a few off the top of my head!
Any personal journeys, favorite materia medicas, or other musings on Hawthorn that you'd like to share? Please do so in the comments below! OR stop by to experience the magic and mystery of Hawthorn yourself with one of our fantastic Hawthorn preparations in store! You'll be glad you did. ❤️✨🍒 #hawthorn #crataegus #heartmedicine #love #plantlove #medicinemaker #plantmedicine #foodismedicine #hawthornlove #herbalist

Excited to announce that its THAT time of year once again! Autumn is when the apprentices graduate and those who so choose, move on from the program to apprenticing in the FREE herbal clinic! 🌿.
Free clinics run every Monday night from 5pm to 8pm beginning October 8th!!

How they work: show up anytime from 5-7:30 pm! Clinics are first come, first serve. You may certainly call ahead and let us know that you plan to come, but we do not reserve spaces. You will fill out a short "freedom of care" form and then a student herbalist and I will sit together as you go through your story and main concerns. We will use tongue assessment and our expert questioning skills to come up with appropriate remedies for you and then we will formulate herbal medicines on the spot and you will be on your merry way! We will then call you the next week or you're free to come in for a short follow up! That's it! 🌿.
YOU help a student learn the craft so long to learn, and WE supply you with handcrafted herbal medicines! WIN/WIN! 💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼 PLEASE! SPREAD THE WORD! 🗣🎤📡 #herbalmedicine #freeclinic #communityherbalism #supportcommunityherbalists #radicalherbalism #madewithlove #herbalstudents #studentsoflife #planthealers
