Herbal CSA + Apothecary
The Tradition and Practice of an Apothecary
Though the term apothecary has gained popularity in the marketing world during recent times, the origins and meaning of this word t have long and ancient roots. An apothecary isn't just a place, but a person and their carefully crafted herbal goods, made to honor the magic, art, and science of herbal medicine making and all that it holds. The Apothecary is a space for the herbalist to connect with their community, using their years of training to create carefully-crafted, high-quality remedies that support the mind, body, and soul. This traditional style of business is a long-standing practice, and I am honored to create with all of you. The East Bay Herbals Apothecary will move in alignment with the seasons, featuring ethically and sustainably sourced herbs and ingredients.
What's In The Shop + The Herbal CSA
The shop is updated each season and will offer a subscription of herbal products (Herbal CSA) designed to help support the body and mind during each season. Subscriptions will be released on a quarterly and annual basis, offering a carefully curated collection of herbs, designed to help embrace the magic of the season, while providing balance and support to the body at the same time for optimal seasonal health and well-being.
What Is An Herbal CSA?
A community-driven model of the traditional apothecary, the CSA (Community Supported Apothecary) follows a model similar to that of a traditional produce CSA where small-batch seasonal products are offered through a subscription, helping to support the apothecary and community at the same time. These offerings are based on the tenants of traditional and seasonal herbalism, providing wellness items to help support the health, vitality, and optimal functioning of the body during each time of the year. This CSA in particular also has an educational component to it, helping to teach subscribers how to use and embrace herbalism during each time of the year. Items are herbalist-crafted and formulated and feature local farms and purveyors whenever possible. Help support community herbalism and your health at the same time and join the CSA today!
Please Note: We are a true small-batch apothecary and orders will typically ship within 1-2 weeks from the purchase date. If you need your items sooner than that, feel free to reach out and we will accommodate you if possible.
