About Emileaves Apothecary Shoppe:
Emileaves Apothecary is a community based herbalism project. I wanted to find a place where I could share both my love of glass, and my love of plant medicine and holistic healing. My mission is provide my customers with both healing apothecary products such as teas, soaking salts, salves, lotions, perfumes, and body oils, for everyday use. I started my plant knowledge journey in 2017 working at a local Greenhouse called Felly's Flowers. At Felly's I worked with the horticulturist named Abdullah who began teaching me about herbalism, the medicine behind plants, and how to harvest and forage from nature. I started crafting my own body products at the age of 17, and have been using handmade body care ever since. I then attended college twice and got my BFA and MFA in Craft and Material Studies- specifically glassworking. In 2020, I took a full herbalist and aromatherapy course and interned under Laura's Botanicals out of Richmond, VA.
I believe that the earth provides us with everything we need to heal- both internally and externally. Using the traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayruvedic and Materia Medica Plant perspectives- I craft my botanical products to heal with much deeper affects than just aroma. I strive to provide both the physical product for use- but also provide knowledge on traditional plant uses, holistic healing methods and sustainable home living.
