My name is Aimee and I'm the one woman band behind Mellow Root Herbals. I have been learning from and studying herbs for over a decade. They're my favorite teachers along with the Earth's subtle teachings and those who have been making medicine before me. My business is a reflection of the gratitude I have for healing plants. I make herbal products that can be used daily to balance and nourish our bodies. Formulas vary with the season depending on which plants are available and which ones I am intuitively called to use. I believe the plants that grow around us are here as a gift and we should learn from them and incorporate them into our daily lives. I use the highest quality/organically grown plants (either grown myself or from local, sustainable suppliers) in all of my products and everything is handcrafted by me in small batches. Anything I wild harvest is done with great intention and only if there is an abundance. The plants I use are generally safe for most people but listen to your body and discontinue use if any irritation may occur because everyone of us is a little different! I'm a folk herbalist, I am not a medical doctor. I have spent much of my time working with these plants and I always like to let people know how important it is to use common sense and to first do some research of your own. Especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, using on children or if you are on prescription drugs or have other underlying medical conditions.
One of my main goals is to inspire people to make their own medicine because I believe that we all have the ability to take good care and to heal and nurture ourselves. I also think that every time someone handcrafts something with positive intention it is a beautiful reflection of themselves and the great universe we all live in. Some fun facts about me: I love the woods. I love weeds. I love farming and growing plants. I love all people, plants, flowers and trees. My favorite color is purple and my middle name is Rose, which is one of my all time favorite flowers.
