You might not have all the thyme in the world to grow and prepare all your own herbal concoctions. That’s where we come in at Sweet Gum Springs Apothecary. You pay us to focus our “thyme” and energy so that we can bring you the best plants have to offer. What do they have to offer?, you may ask.
The answer is simple. Plants offer you nourishment and medicine to keep your body, mind and spirit in balance. Plants and herbs are vitally important for everyday health and wellness. As one health practitioner I knew in San Francisco would say, “eat 5% wild foods everyday to maintain optimal health.”
In our first blog post, I thought I’d offer you some of my favorite sources for herbal inspiration. Some of these people, you may have heard of!
