The Alchemy and Craft of the Apothecary Arts. Medicine & Fragrance from Nature.

A sculptor in wood and stone from my late teens, Stone, to slate, slate to bone, sculptor to craftsman, bone to horn to stone again. Some brass glass and horseshoe nails thrown in along the way. But, always, since the age of 4 or 5, always, asking questions about plants. What is it? What does it do? What is it called? How does it grow? Always trying to help a plant by sowing its seeds, fulfilling its needs. Woven through my life as an artist, I pursued my love of healing plants, nature's fragrances and smells, essential oils, resins and saps. I have had an intimate relationship with trees all my life. We look out for each other. I will always be a "Maker" and Nature will always be my Muse.
In Plant Alchemy, I found the path. The "Art" was revealed, the path forward illuminated. I walked it to this point in time, and here I am. Walking a path that still unfolds under my feet. One that seems to lead through ancient wisdom forward to cultural enlightenment, reclaiming some babies we threw out with the bath water in our rush to be modern and industrialized.Just following the path as it unfolds under my feet. Trying not to look down and keep my faith bright that there is something worth it all, in the moment and around the turn ahead..

At Apothecary's Garden, I am passionate about Mother Nature, her aromatic and medicinal treasures, ethics, sustainability and fairtrade practices.
Working with Astrological rulerships, traditional Plant Alchemy, and medical astrology brings different qualities to my work. Qualities, I believe, that can not be found through impersonal commercial, or mass produced items.
I try to deal directly with co-ops, harvester families and individual wildcrafters as my collection of sustainable and Fairtrade Fragrance materials grows, visiting them personally when possible.
The harvesters are the best qualified and positioned individuals to care for these treasures that we all share. Seeing to their prosperity and wellbeing, is the only way to ensure many of our aromatic and medicinal treasures are kept from extinction as our market demand grows. Our world is our Apothecary's Garden, one we all reap from. It is up to you and I to take care of it, and make sure those that tend to it are well cared for.
