Bridget’s Apothecary started out of a desire to connect people to skills and knowledge while bringing life and health back into balance. More recently it has become clear that the best way to do that is to reconnect with our roots, the traditions we have forgotten, and the natural world around us. My hope is that more community forms as we learn together, grow together, and share our knowledge with each other.
So much of my beginning work with herbs was dependent on knowledge that came from books. I still love reading and studying and trying to understand things intellectually, but the deeper I go, the more I realize that nothing is quite as illuminating as forming a relationship with the plants around me. The trees, the blooms, the leaves, the roots, the berries, each have a story to tell. It’s time to listen.
