This place, this little homemade herb shoppe, is the dream of my heart. It’s the place of wildness and plant magic where I roamed as a child. It's my witchy self, my community self, my self as a mother, my free-spirited entrepreneurial self.
I completed the Herbal Foundations program with Ginger Webb's Sacred Journey School here in Austin in 2014. Since then, I continue to learn, practice, make and deepen my relationship with the plants.
I started Lemon Tree Herbs as a local market plant medicine booth at the Downtown SFC Farmer's Market. I love shopping at farmer's markets and being part of the local sustainable community. I am so lucky to be friends with a lot of kind, generous, hard working farmers that provide me with fresh herbs for making potions (as well as beautiful veggies, meat and eggs that sustain my family). I also source herbs from my backyard garden, and I enjoy spending time in the forest wild crafting. Please know that whenever I harvest, I ask for permission from the plants first, and I harvest gently and with respect. I only take a small amount, and I never harvest any plants that aren't in abundance. I strive to give back to the plants with my gifts and heart, and care for nature in a reciprocal relationship. And always with gratitude.
I can be found at 3 weekly farmer's markets here in Austin: Saturday Downtown SFC Market 9:00-1:00 on 4th an Guadelupe, Sunday HOPE Market 11:00-3:00 at Saltillo Plaza on 5th and Comal, and Wednesday evening market 5:00-8:00 at Mueller.
You can connect with me on Instagram where I post regularly on new items I'm bringing to market, new blog posts, plant photos, and stories from the heart.
