At Light Footsteps, herbalism is about much more than using plants in the same way we use pharmaceutical drugs.
Herbalism is a lifestyle where one listens to the Earth and learns to hear messages about preventative healthcare and healing. We do this by grounding our rhythms in nature. We understand food as medicine and use plants as our allies in health.
From this place of conscious awareness, we are able to benefit from plants to help heal physical and psychological imbalances.
We grow herbs using organic gardening methods and within a permaculture framework. To support our family, we sell fresh and dried herbs as well as handcrafted herbal products.
We also provide seasonal herb walks and other educational classes to help people learn about connecting with the natural world for improved health.
Past Botanical Wellness Boxes:
For now, we have discontinued the Botanical Wellness Box program. Unfortunately, we were not able to garner enough interest to make it sustainable at this time. I hope to re-imagine and relaunch something similar in the future.
