About

Botanical Alchemy & Apothecary is the creation of herbalist, Kristen Moore, who would love to be the herbalist down your street, but today’s world dictates a different paradigm. We no longer live in small communities with a neighborhood baker, potter, herbalist, etc, and although that sounds awfully nice, now we  have something better. We have a world of knowledge at our fingertips, and that means we can help our own selves achieve optimal health through a collection of means such as the tropical herbs from the rain forests, Asian adaptogens and philosophies, Indian Ayurvedic recipes, as well as the ‘weeds’ growing in your own backyard. In other words, we have more access to world knowledge and ingredients than ever before and this site is a collection of what is simple, what is accessible, and what is doable to maintain your best health, to age with less wear and tear, and how to incorporate more ‘natural’ into your life. We humans have always used herbs at home for health, beauty, and wellness, and that tradition continues here, and expands as our world knowledge expands. I’m excited to learn and grow with you.
