It's Here, It's Here, Spring is Coming! The daffodils are pushing up their beautiful yellow heads, the nettles are becoming abundant in the forests, and the days are starting to feel brighter and longer. After our deep winter slumber Spring coaxes us out of hibernation, calling us back into the light and warmth of the sun.
Our Community Supported Apothecary Share is here to support you through the ever-shifting patterns of Spring. Spring is often a good time for cleansing the organ systems after the rich and heavy foods we've consumed to keep us warm through Winter. Spring is the perfect time to get the body back into balance through more vigorous exercise, lighter foods, and creating space for self-care. Each product in your CSA share is thoughtfully chosen to allow your Spring to be a time for positive transformation. The focus this season is on cleansing the liver, blood, and gallbladder, with a shared emphasis on light, warmth, and ease.
Herb Infused Chicken Stock - Our chicken stock is made from chickens raised and butchered on our farm in Sandy, OR. Every batch of stock is simmered for twelve hours with carrots, onions and celery to give a vegetable kick, and to add a rich and earthy flavor. We've included Reishi Mushrooms, Dandelion Root, and Burdock Root for their gentle liver stimulating properties. Reishi Mushrooms work as an immune stimulant and blood detoxifier; Dandelion Root regulates blood sugar, curbing our sweet cravings as we transition to a lighter diet; Burdock Root promotes blood and lymph circulation while stimulating healthy digestion. 32 oz jar.
Farm + Forest Salad Mix - Our salad mix is the perfect blend of homegrown and wildcrafted (WC) greens. Tender greens help us bring micro-nutrients and fiber back into our diet while stimulating digestion through their naturally bitter quality. A perfect addition to any spring meal. 1/2 pound bag.
Nettle Pesto - Our Nettle Pesto is a wonderful way to bring nettles into your daily diet. Considered one of the most nutritive herbs, it is high in vitamins and minerals, activates the metabolism and digestive system, promotes healthy liver function, and calms spring allergies.

Extracted in an organic Apple Cider Vinegar base, our tonic includes organic Oatstraw, WC Nettle, Organic Dandelion Leaf and Root, Organic Red Clover, Organic Alfalfa and Organic Rose Hips. These herbs were selected for their nutritive qualities providing Calcium, Vitamin A and C, Iron, Potassium, Silicon, Magnesium, and Zinc. Great in a cup of warm water to start your day or as an addition to salad dressing and marinades. 8 oz bottle.
Digestive Bitters - Bitters are an essential part of any Spring diet. Using bitters before eating is a wonderful way to prepare the stomach for healthy and effective digestion. Digestive Bitters begin working as soon as they hit your taste buds. The bitter taste has a reflex action on your stomach and pancreas, stimulating the production of digestive juices. Bitters also stimulate the liver and prepare the gall bladder for the release of bile. Our Digestive Bitters includes calming, pungent, and aromatic herbs. These add a warming quality to our formula relieving flatulence, stomach cramping, and indigestion. Bitters are a true tonic that should be taken regularly over time in the same way that bitter foods would be consumed. Contains Organic Fresh Orange Peel, Organic Fresh Ginger, Organic, Fennel, Organic Chamomile, Organic Gentian, Organic Skullcap, Organic Black Pepper, and 80 Proof Alcohol. 2 oz bottle.

Liver Scrub Tincture - Our sweet and spicy root based tincture is here to help 'scrub out' your liver. This lovely combination of herbs aids in blood cleansing, improved liver function, fat metabolism, and digestive prowess. Working with the liver can lead to healthier skin, increased nutrient absorption, and higher levels of energy. Spring is the perfect time to participate in a liver focused cleanse, cutting out fatty and heavy foods in favor of light broths, fermented foods, steamed vegetables, and light grains such as quinoa and amaranth.

Tulsi + Ginger Honey - Our infused honey is a perfect addition to your morning cup of tea, spread on warm bread with butter, or straight from the jar. Tulsi is an adaptogen, meaning it helps your body to adapt in the presence of dis-ease. Whether you're suffering from a cold, flu, headache, or menstrual cramps, Tulsi is here to help. Tulsi is great for bolstering the adrenal system, relieving stress and anxiety, and is gently soothing to the digestive tract. Ginger is added for its anti-inflammatory and warming properties which can aid in digestion, help move stagnant blood, and soothe inflamed joints and muscles. We extract these powerful healing herbs into a base of Oregon harvested, raw, and unfiltered honey, using a low heat method to preserve the product's potency. 6 oz jar.
Rosemary + Oat Soap w/Ceramic Soap Dish - Our soaps are made with all Organic Palm Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Olive Oil, and Organic Goat's Milk from our farm.
