About my shop and practice:
I began Resilience Apothecary in 2019, a concept that survivors of childhood sexual abuse and those who've experienced trauma and live with PTSD or C-PTSD can learn to thrive instead of survive when given the best tools for coping and self-awareness. For me, that included a daily journaling practice, professional therapy (state-funded, free assistance was the only way that was possible at first, in 2016), building a sacred relationship with the forest and garden and using tarot cards as a mirror tool to explore my inner workings and processes, since I work best using prompts. Often those who've experienced trauma cannot understand or even name what they're feeling. These tools truly helped me to transform the relationship with myself through self-reflection. I have developed a critical-thinking based awareness of my own privileges as a white woman and disadvantages as a person with an invisible mental illness (C-PTSD and adult ADHD). Resilience Apothecary is a channeling of my experience and passions in a creative and holistic manner. I am honored to share it with those who would benefit.
I began reading tarot cards when I was 17. After being gifted a set when I was 24 by a special woman teacher and being encouraged to explore the practice further, the tarot became a serious and fun way to get to know myself through a medium that connected me with my ancient ancestors in Ireland (The Moores). My pagan roots were tapped and I felt I'd finally found something I could identify with and believe in (instead of Southern Baptist Christianity which I never found to be comforting or soothing).
There is Holy Spirit in the mountains, trees, clouds and plants; the forest, garden and planet are my church and reclamation. Everything created in this shop is created with care and love for the planet and for you. It is my intention for you to find an inner peace and serenity of your own, so no storm may rock you, no matter how fierce. If my products or readings can facilitate those things, I have accomplished what I have been called to do.
The Resilience Apothecary botanical business began because my friend Alfie said she’d buy my Florida Water if I sold it at the Freehand Market in Saxapahaw. I started to make and bottle it and that led to many other botanical magicks and tinctures. I made some divine smelling protection spray (The Good Good Spray) and little travel sized Florida waters too! I'm also making medicine bottles of hand-made local wild flower essences, sets of them to attune to each chakra into balance. (In the works!)
Truly, this stuff feeds my soul and while I used to feel much shame around my spiritualism (I never talked about it with anyone because of past experiences of ridicule, judgement, and teasing), I do not feel shame any longer. I give myself permission to follow a path which makes me happy. This work is not work; it makes me jovial, creatively inspired and satisfied. I love the feeling of making something that tickles and embraces the senses and helping to light a path for those searching for their own.
Thank you for trusting me and giving me a chance to share what I've learned in a practical and magical way.
