My name is Sara...
and my mission is to give people access to natural remedies made in a spiritually-minded manner to improve health and decrease reliance on harsh, chemical-laden alternatives. I grew up taking antibiotics upon any sign of sickness and eating a typical western diet full of processed foods. My career led me to the consumer packaged industry where I got to experience first-hand the chemicals that are in most processed, conventional foods.
Health problems involving asthma and food allergies led me back to basics: less processed foods, whole ingredients, and a holistic approach to healing the body.
I moved to Austin, Texas in 2014 and began working with natural food brands. The world of supply chain and ingredient sourcing unfolded in front of my eyes. I discovered how powerful the dollar can be when purchasing products that are ethically sourced and sustainably made. Every dollar we spend is a vote we cast for how we believe things should be. These natural food companies didn’t only care about making money; they truly cared about the impact their products had on the environment, the customer’s health, and even the farmer’s welfare. I started to eat a well-balanced, largely plant-based diet with a focus on sustainability.
As my world opened up to natural foods, the desire to live a holistic life transpired to other facets of my life. I started to turn towards herbal medicine, using herbs as a support and healing system for my health issues. I began my own research, reading, taking classes, and I haven’t looked back since. I recently graduated from Level 1 of The Sacred Journey School of Herbalism learning to be a steward of the medicinal plants, the natural world, and the Earth herself.
Herbalists connect people with plants so that they may partner with them on a healing journey. Through The Sacred Journey School of Herbalism, I've completed over 200 hours of training, both inside the classroom and outside in the field. In the 2018-2019 year, I will be taking Level 2 at my School. I look forward to learning for the rest of my life.
Through herbal medicine, a better diet, and a more holistic approach to life, I've been able to heal some of my most cumbersome health ailments. I haven't had to use my inhaler in years and I can now eat some foods that previously my body rejected. I truly believe that food is medicine and making these herbal remedies connects me to the healing power that Mother Earth can provide. I can’t wait to share that healing power with you :)
