About

Once upon a time...

In the beginning, there was curiosity.

Old Growth Alchemy began as a way to share illuminations of my ongoing study in folk herb craft, lore, storytelling, and traditional witchery through interaction with the sensuous, animate earth. My creations demonstrate how the experience of leaf, twig, root, flower, or branch transforms depending upon the medium by which they are encountered. In my products, I reflect upon my findings and the fruits of seasonal harvests and experimentations.

The familiar will transform into the unusual by examining forgotten and overlooked plants in unlikely places.

At this moment, I would consider myself an apprenticing folk herbalist. As such, I work with the plants as they appear in my life and prefer the folk methodologies in practice but am constantly hungering for the science and logic to back it up. My background in herbalism is self-taught research and inquiry as well as an apprenticeship with Spoonful Herbals in community herbalism.

Won't you join me in my discoveries as I create new enchantments out of old, unbroken things?
