I am Elizabeth and I am the sole proprietor of The Medicinal Melange, a holistic, vegan apothecary in TX. When I’m not working with herbs, I fill the roles of mother, wife, co parent, and skater. I take pride in working closely with local mutual aid organizations while finding creative ways to help my community.
I grew up working with plants my whole life and studied aromatherapy for a few years after a friend introduced me to it. However, it wasn't until my daughter was diagnosed with PANDAS that I felt called to explore Herbalism. Though she was prescribed a copious amount of prescription medicine and was doing bi-monthly inpatient treatments, my daughter was not having any sort of actual healing happening. The doctor's solution? Don't let my daughter get sick the rest of her life (I wish I was making that up). I was sure there was a better way and something that wasn't ruining her system while "helping" her diagnosis.
I started learning Folk Herbalism and that worked well enough, but I was looking for something a little more in-depth. I enrolled in many different herbal classes and then finally made the big leap to learn at a traditional school for Western Herbalism. I have been actively helping friends, family, and my community for years and am thankful for those trusted relationships. It is a personal choice to use herbal recommendations and I 100% see the value in using herbs first in many situations that I used to rely on over the counter and some prescription medicines. If you arent seeing total healing or if you don't have access to care, consider using herbal remedies.
