Wild Seed Apothecary

Seasonal Wellness Shares

Community Supported Herbalism (CSH) is designed just like a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), but offers shares of herbal products such as teas, tinctures, and skin care products.  At Wild Seed Apothecary, our CSH is organized around the change of seasons.  Seasonal transitions place our bodies under an increased amount of stress as our internal state works to acclimate to changes in the environment (weather, light, temperature, etc).  At these times it is increasingly important to be mindful of our bodies, as we are more likely to feel rundown, exhausted or overwhelmed. Our bodies also have different needs during each season; for example, our skin often requires rich moisturizer or a thicker salve in winter than during the humidity of summer and we are more likely to come down with a cold or the flu during the dry winter months. Our wellness philosophy ties into Traditional Chinese Medicine’s Five Element Theory, which designates a relationship between each season and particular organs in the body. Working to nourish and support these organs in particular during the corresponding season helps your body maintain optimum health throughout the year.

WSA offers a bundle of herbal products that are geared toward supporting your body through the different particulars each season brings. Seasonal Wellness Shares are distributed just before the beginning of each season to offer maximum support during the transitional time and throughout the season.  Each share is accompanied by directions on how to use each product, information regarding the plants incorporated into the products, an herb-influenced seasonal recipe, a plant-card,  and seasonal-specific health tips.

HOW IT WORKS:

Seasonal Wellness Shares* include the following products, as well as detailed information on each product and seasonal health tips

  • single herb and compound formula tinctures (echinacea extract, liver tonic tincture, etc)
  • herbal tea (nourishing nettles, sweet dreams tea blend, etc)
  • skin care products (salve, skin cream, facial scrub, toner, etc)
  • specialty items (fire cider, elderberry syrup, herbal vinegar, etc)

    My spring share arrived on the Spring Equinox, it was magical. The products and literature provided are beautiful. It was such a pleasure to incorporate these products into my daily routine! I especially love the Spring Tonic Vinegar. I will definitely be purchasing more products and I cannot wait for the next share! Thank you for providing such a fantastic service! Brilliant!

    I was so impressed with every share. The products were beautifully packaged and accompanied by gorgeous information cards. It was so exciting to open up the bag and see what was in there. The mixture of tinctures, lotions, teas and other treats was great – a little of everything. It was a great introduction to lots of products, some of which I purchased extra of. I am excited to sign up for another year! It is obvious how much love and care Erin puts into every single item. She has clearly found her life’s calling.
