It started with a koala.
The rooted foundation of our work is the recognition that the sacred resides beyond, between, and within all of us. And that the sacred has a sense of humor – so we should, too, because we’ll probably feel better after a good laugh.
Our remedies are created for all sorts, from daily wellbeing blends, to teas for pregnancy and post-partum, and essences for emotional balance and stability. We firmly believe there is a particular plant or two that is ready to be your friend and guide you along the path to wellbeing – and we’re happy to help introduce you.

Our little Apothecary is part of the greater movement to make herbal medicine more accessible, holistic, and radically kind. WORTS + CUNNING APOTHECARY does this work with quirk, a sizable dose of laughter, immense pleasure in the process of healing, and a tremendous love for our green allies. Through our work we practice our values to heal, engage + sustain.

Heal thyself. Plant medicine is accessible medicine available to all who would take the time to listen, learn, and find joy in the process of becoming more whole.
Heal our neighborhoods, our cities, our rural communities, and the many environments we are part of. Create systems that value the inherent sacredness of all life, the mystery and dignity of death, and the cycle that returns us again to the earth and stars.
Heal relationships with all of our selves, our families, friends, lovers, and creatures of all persuasions. We believe that each of us is a reflection of the other and to know each other truthfully is to know our own selves more distinctly.
☆ E N G A G E ☆
Engage with the re-enchantment of the world through sustainable living, trust in magick, acknowledging the beauty of our existence, and cultivating compassion learned from our green allies.
Engage with the unknown, the uncertain, and the unexplored. We believe as one rather clever wisewoman says that “where there is fear there is power” and part of the healing process is overcoming the limitations we have created to survive so that we may truly thrive.
Engage with fellow healers to support community health. The Apothecary collaborates with fellow herbalists, midwives, birthworkers, and other healers to create accessible venues to offer our services to the communities we live in.
☆ S U S T A I N ☆
Sustain systems of health and wellbeing that build a beautiful landscape of wellness both within and without. We are wonderful little ecosystems that exist in a much larger one and by creating sustainable healing designs which include herbal medicine, nutrition, movement, and following our deepest desires, we help generate wellness in the environment around us.
Contact Alexis at wortsandcunning [at] gmail [dot] com if you have any questions, curious pursuits or clever comments about who she is, what she does, and how she can get to know you better. She is always happy to create a custom blend because we are all unique and deserve something special.
All of our products are created in a smoke-free, T.V.-free, as chemical-free as possible, and enchantment-filled home! The Apothecary has an official puppy mascot who now lives here, so if you have dog allergies please take precautions.
