Staci Thompson's Profile
I'm Staci Kawa-Thompson, the founder and resident herbalist of the Elfin Herb Farm. I have a B.S. in Environmental & Systematic Biology from Cal Poly, S.L.O. This gave me a good start on the botany and chemistry of herbs.
I also have a certificate in aromatherapy from the American College of Health Sciences (390 hour program). This specialized area of herbal medicine taught me the therapeutic and clinical use of essential oils.
The desire to improve my family's health has given me the reason to put my knowledge and experience to use. And in doing so, I hope to help others along the way.
My education continues through classes at the College of Botanical Healing Arts, outings with local herbalists and botanists and from growing the herbs themselves.
