Heritage Botanicals

Plants hold ancient and ethereal allure. They have supported health, nourishment, spiritual awakening and ceremony since time before memory.

We have evolved together, people and plants. The stunning diversity of species, shapes, sizes, colors, scents and structures reveal the depth of our codependency.  For millennia, we have gathered berries and bark, leaves and stems, nectars and essences to make our medicines and feed our families. We take great comfort in the certainty of the seasons, the cycles of rebirth, bloom and return, and the ritual of reap and sow.

Our relationship with plants is familial, reciprocal, reverential. It is in this context that we created Sḵwálwen.
