You can often find her in the kitchen working with fresh roots, creating tinctures and formulas or making her well-known “Deb’s Mega Balm” first-aid salve and lip balm. She takes a lighthearted approach and loves the fun, messy nature of herbalism and the cast of characters that has become a core part of her life. She also enjoys teaching others how to take their own health and the health of their families, communities and environment into their own hands.”
