We find the most worthwhile actions will always be of benefit on many different levels. When we invest in these herbs we invest in our health, in traditional modes of living, we support herbalists, we support the wildcrafters and we ensure that the Old Ways endure for the next generation. This line of herbs and herbal teas supports an elder, a true wise woman and seer, a master herbalist and healer. These are either wildcrafted from her mountain cabin forest or the little field and garden for the traditional herb gardens grown in organic, mineral rich soil that is sensual and alive. She is a teacher, a healer, a writer and designer of gardens. A mother, a steward of mountains and valleys, we must support such work to ensure the seeds, flowers and trees continue to thrive and propagate. This is part of our Project Asgard for heritage seed banks, and breeding ancient lineage farm animals. Thank you for your purchase supporting ancestral herbs, folk medicine and ensuring heirloom varieties survive and are propagated.
