About Full Bloom Herbals
My understanding of how plants heal us will help you wade through the information your body is giving you, empowering you to make the best choices to bring about your own vibrant health.
I am a mother, wife, friend, gardener, teacher, student, daughter, and plant-loving woman always looking for ways to share the plant love. Through my herbal consultation clinic, I offer private sessions to support you to bring vibrant health back into your life. I teach many different workshops throughout the year, sharing ways to use herbal medicine to prevent and treat common illnesses. And I have an herbal dispensary, providing tools for you to help you and your family be well.
I know what it is to wander lost in a wilderness of options. To feel overwhelmed by all the choices and information available to me. To feel hopeless and confused. My lifelong joy of working with plants has lead to the creation of Full Bloom Herbals, my business for making and selling herbal remedies to you.
My hope is to help you connect with your own healing abilities and the wonders that the plant world has to offer. I can be a guiding light along your path.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for plants and the wellness that nature can provide. From years spent pulling weeds in my mother’s garden to mixing potions out of the spice cupboard as a child, I’ve always had my hands in the dirt. Now as an adult, I am constantly amazed at the wealth and health that can be found in our everyday food and “weeds” from our gardens. I am so thrilled to be able to share that wealth with you!
I discovered herbal medicine 15 years ago in an introductory weekend workshop taught by a woman in Victoria in her home garden. She had the most amazing urban herbal oasis. Plants and weeds and bugs and dirt and LOVE filled her yard. I knew then I had found my calling. One day I would create a space like that for myself.
When I became a mother, I used what I first learned during that weekend and the mountain of books I’ve since accumulated to keep my babies healthy and strong. I didn’t want to put chemicals with unpronounceable names on their skin or in their bodies. From diaper rash to croup to growing pains we use plant based medicine in our home. As my children grow we continue to use herbs to keep them strong and healthy.
For the last 5 years I’ve been concentrating on deepening my herbal studies. In 2013, I worked with Abrah Arneson of the Green Clinic in Red Deer to bring this range of herbal learning together in a clinical apprenticeship. Traditionally herbalists learn the medicine by experiencing it. Under the guiding hand of a master, an apprentice studies and practices, growing their skills and their apothecary. Working with Abrah built my confidence as she watched me deepen my skills. Now I can share those skills with you.
In addition to my apprenticeship with Abrah, I have taken a range of courses from many different herbalists. Now I’m ready to bring this knowledge and experience to my own clinic and my work with you.
