Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide quality, authentic holistic health services and handcrafted herbal products intentionally curated to focus on holistic mental health and heart-centered living, allowing our customers and clients to easily integrate practices and products into their daily life to aid in achieving true health and contentment of the mind, body and soul.


Our philosophy is to redefine the way we, as a society, view and work to achieve optimal mental and physical health and love of the self, using an approach that follows the idea of slow living versus a fast-paced, “need-results-now” lifestyle.

We believe it is of utmost importance to make mental, physical and spiritual health and well-being and self-love top priorities. The most sustainable way to achieve this is through integrating authentic, vulnerable and intimate practices and quality products overtime. The practices and products we offer will aid in creating a seemingly new and whole version of the self, shedding past fears, worries, doubts, guilt, etc. that have accumulated as a byproduct of the culture that we live in. Creating sacred and/or spiritual practices with intention to implement them into every day life allow for a heart-centered way of living that creates a true sense of contentment, the feeling of “happiness” that we are all searching for, in order to ride the ebbs and flows of life with ease. We offer herbal products, yoga classes, health and wellness services, mindfulness practices and more to aid you in healing, growing, learning, unlearning and transforming, so you can surrender and simply be.


Our motto is “Bridging Mind, Heart and Earth.” As we work so closely with the Earth, we believe it is of utmost importance to be intentional with our sourcing, as to create minimal impact on our local ecosystem and the Earth as a whole. From our ingredients to our packaging, we aim to source as local and sustainable as possible. We source our ingredients from local small businesses and farms. About 80% of our packaging is recycled, reused/reusable or compostable. Eventually, we hope to grow most of our herbs ourselves and to do so through a wild, regenerative garden. We are also always looking for more local partners to source from and also enjoy collaborating with other local, small businesses!
