Let me start by saying, I'm in the process of polishing off a bottle of Lara Pacheco's lavender balm. I'll admit it was a gift from her to me from the pop-up shop I ran for 10 weeks. I was delighted when she offered to give me a little treat in return for having her amazing product in the shop. I thought you all might love learning a little bit about her company, Seed & Thistle Apothecary, enjoy. And please visit her site, her products will do your skin right. 

What's the story behind your company?

Seed and Thistle Apothecary is a monthly pickup of seasonally based herbal preparations from the Cully neighborhood in Northeast Portland.  These herbal preparations derive from plant medicine that I have organically grown in my yard or ethically harvested from our surrounding forests. 

What do you make and where can we get our hands on your goods?

Seed and Thistle sells herbal preparations at theClary Sage Herbarium on Alberta St. between 28th and 29th St,the Lloyd Farmer's Market,  atSt. John's Farmer's Market,Cully Market on Thursdays, and once a month at theHollywood Farmer's Market on Saturdays.  This summer, I will be co-running four weeks of camp at theSide Yard Farm to offer up herbalism to youth, please registerhere if interested. Workshops and classes throughout the season are available along with Individual Consultations to help empower you along the journey of optimal health!  The journey of cultivating the wild, the state in which we become aware of the truest parts of ourselves that connect to the inherent wisdom of nature and our bodies.
