Herbalism is a branch of alternative medicine, known as the practice of using medicinal and therapeutic plants. Holistic herbalism looks at the root of an imbalance, helping you to restore physical, emotional, or spiritual wellness and achieve your personal goals. This differs from modern medicine, which only offers standardized therapies.
I consider myself an Herbal Educator, a foraging and wild crafting enthusiast. My methods of traditional, wise woman herbalism focus on helping clients create lifelong optimum health and wellness for themselves. I help you reach that balance through personal consultations, helpful education, nurturing support, and local expert referrals for any conditions or issues I cannot assist you with.
While I am enrolled in the Heart of Herbs Certified Herbalist course, I am offering herbalist consultations and services at no cost to all Doula clients and the Delaware community until 2020! This is a great way for you to introduce yourself to herbal wellness, at no cost to you.
Aromatherapy is the art of using therapeutic essential oils to lift mood, energize, ease stress, avoid bad habits, and more. Your personalized consultation will help me suggest the perfect scent or blend, and the best form of delivery or preparation for you.
Body Spray, Room Spray, Bath Oils, Blended/Massage Oils, Roller/Diffuser Blends, Natural Perfumes, Creams, Lotions, Liniments, and Salves
Medicinal flowers and plants have potent properties to boost immunity and support wellness. Many herbal preparations are safe for the young and the elderly, and can help correct imbalances, ease and soothe symptoms, or promote good health.

I will chat with you for about an hour in person to talk about your current goals and desires for your health over a cup of tea. I welcome you to set up an appointment at my home office, or for convenience I can travel to you. We’ll talk about the ways you can eliminate things that may be actively working against your goals and create a simple plan with correcting actions to help support them instead.
This may involve nutritional planning, massage or reflexology, personalized yoga classes, herbal preparations, or stress reducing suggestions. I promise to not overwhelm you and support only to your comfort level. What may work for someone else may not work for you, so it’s important to talk about your individual wants and needs. I’ll support you and your body’s natural healing process, and provide desired resources and information along the way.
You should always consult with your medical care provider when considering any alternative wellness methods.
I use organic and locally sourced herbs as much as possible, and craft my own infusions, extracts, salves, and more. Ask me for details on this subject, I’ll always be happy to talk about where my herbs or products come from!
