Grace was raised on a small family farm nestled on the edge of the woods in the wilds of Washington state, where she developed a keen love of nature and an appreciation for its many uses in everyday life. After many years of studying plant medicine and natural skincare while developing and selling a skincare line, she has begun to delve deeper into herbalism and begun studying with plant medicine maestras Susan Weed and Dina Falconi while pursuing her Permaculture certificate. Her focus is on using plant medicine to enrich your daily diet and health routines. She works fulltime at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors where she is able to showcase the alchemy of herbs and medicinal mushrooms in delicious food and drinks to show how delicious and easy it is to add plant medicine to your daily routine.
