Since graduating with first class honors from my degree in clinical herbal medicine in England, I have spent many wonderful years connecting people with the amazing medicinal qualities of botanicals.
The benefits of eating fruit and vegetables are well known, but plants have a lot more to offer for our health. Their medicinal actions can help support physical and mental wellbeing, as well as combining to create gorgeous so-natural-you-could-eat-it botanical skincare products.
My life in herbs is joyously diverse. No two days are the same:
I work with individuals in one-on-one herbal wellness consultations and share my love and knowledge of plants in classes and workshops for people of all ages and experiences. Classes are held in Santa Cruz California, and I travel within the Bay Area for botanical skincare making birthday parties, wedding and baby showers and corporate team building workshops.
My small, but perfectly formed range of The English Herbalist teas and incredibly effective pure, clean botanical skincare is handmade and blended from the finest all-botanical ingredients. See here to view and buy.
I love to write, and recently co-authored INFUSE: Herbal Teas to Cleanse Nourish and Heal which is available in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Spain and Czech Republic — with more countries coming soon. My writing can also be found here on my blog as well as as a content contributor for a major herb company.

I was delighted to be featured in South Bay Accent Magazine... click on the picture for a pdf of the interview.
Classes are being planned right now — check back for full information! In the meantime, why not take a look at this interview about adaptogens that I recently did with Crystal Obregon…
