Botanical Therapy was born from a life-long love and respect for nature. An enrolled Lummi Nation tribal member, I grew up on the Lummi Indian Reservation, near Bellingham, WA. My mother would take my older brother and I out on nature walks to look at the various medicinal and edible plants that grew in our area and read about them from our plant identification book. My great grandmother was known throughout our community for her healing skills as an herbalist. Her kitchen was filled with mason jars full of mysterious concoctions, readily available for anyone who would come to her for natural remedies.
These experiences and others formed a tendency towards natural healing. When I first discovered aromatherapy, I decided to make a salve to help with my father's aches and pains that are a result of cancer treatments. Having experienced firsthand the powerful effectiveness of that salve, I enthusiastically delved into research about aromatherapy and expanded my understanding of natural remedies; this led to formal studies and certification as a Master Clinical Aromatherapist.
When formulating recipes, I carefully choose each ingredient for their specific healing properties and the desired outcome. Before any product is made, I spend a quiet moment thanking and honoring the plants who have sacrificed themselves for their medicinal qualities and I also ask that the Creator imbue the ingredients with love and healing. It is an honor and a blessing to work with natural medicines to aid people with their wellness needs. When making products, I often think of my grandmother and am filled with joy for following in her footsteps.
