katja in front of jars of herbs on shelvesI came to herbalism in a very practical, thrifty way: over several years as an exchange student, I developed a love of fancy European herbal teas, but they were expensive and hard to find when i returned to the States.

It seemed to me that I should be able to make them myself, so I started searching for ways to learn. Over the years, i discovered a lot more than just instructions for making tea: I found a vocation.

Now, more than two decades later, I can honestly say that herbalism has saved my body, mind, and spirit.

I’m a Registered Herbalist with the American Herbalists’ Guild
