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 weekly at the Saturday Downtown SFC Market 9:00-1:00 on 4th an Guadelupe Street, Republic Square Park. There is free parking in the parking lot close to the market. Also, you may arrange for local pick up if you can’t make it to market. Just send me a message.
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.
