Over 70% of my herbal medicine & body care product ingredients are sourced from sustainably wild-harvested local plants. I collect these plants predominantly in Whatcom, Skagit & Okanagan counties of Washington state.
I practice sustainable wild-harvesting.
This means I travel to remote locations where the local plants grow happiest, healthiest and mostly undisturbed by human activities. I only ever harvest 1/3 of any given plant stand. I will never harvest a plant if I feel the stand is not healthy or compromised by over harvesting and environmental issues.
In utilizing plants predominately from this bio region, I can create herbal medicines & body care products that are effective, truly natural and sustainable.
