Spring Apothecary  

Creating an apothecary from foraged plants is a deeply rewarding endeavor that allows one to harness the healing power of nature. With each carefully harvested herb and meticulously crafted remedy, an apothecary becomes a sanctuary of herbal wisdom and natural wellness. From the vibrant hues of wildflowers to the earthy aromas of roots and bark, every plant holds a story and a purpose waiting to be unlocked. Through mindful foraging practices and respectful harvesting, we honor the land and its inhabitants while cultivating a deep connection to the plants that sustain us. In the apothecary, these treasures are transformed into tinctures, teas, salves, and syrups, each serving as a testament to the resilience and generosity of the natural world. Here, amidst shelves adorned with jars of botanical treasures, we find not only remedies for the body but also nourishment for the soul, fostering harmony and balance within ourselves and our communities.

Journei Bimwala is a Clinical Family Herbalist, Nutrition Health Coach, Foraging practitioner, Certified Yoga Instructor and Educator.

I want to inspire you to live freely, become more self sufficient, and protect your health. I share my knowledge information on Health, Herbalism, foraging and wildcrafting, fermenting and preserving, cooking whole foods from scratch,  and making herbal products.

My goal is teach you all you need to know to keep yourself and family healthy. That’s just the beginning!

Being in nature and observing the way the land changes day by day, season by season, and year by year, is my life. I walk outside, on paths that have been walked many times over the years and observe the land. What is growing well? What is flourishing? What is struggling? What seeds are being sown and what is lying fallow? As a bioregional herbalist, an herbalist who works primarily with the plants that grow locally to me, these natural cycles and rhythms have become a natural part of life for me.
