Starting from the roots, since early childhood Amethyst has had a deep passion for plants. She has studied herbs and supplements for over 15 years. In addition to being both a wife and mother of 3 beautiful children (foraging family of 5), she is constantly continuing her education as an Herbalist/Wildcrafter. Amethyst is very much an activist for holistic healing. With an over 12 – year journey of seeking healing for her oldest daughter Farah (who has dealt with many mountains of nutritional restrictions/deficiencies), Amethyst has also developed a bittersweet relationship with western medicine out of necessity as well.

Her broad perspective and authentic personality are a compatible match as our medicinal tea bar manager.
