Hey there, Welcome to the little herbal.  My name is Faith.  I am a certified clinical herbalist living in Lafayette, Colorado.  I studied herbalism and nutrition at the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism in Boulder, CO.

I am a mother of 3.  My kids are my greatest teachers.  They have taught me about patience, humility and a greater capacity for love than I knew was possible.  I care for my family’s health with herbs, essential oils and a solid foundation of nourishing whole foods.  I make most our teas, syrups, lotions, salves, toothpaste, sunscreen, etc from scratch.  I love to infuse therapeutic botanicals into skin care.

the little herbal is a place to collect all of my herbal remedies, skin care creations and other kitchen experiments.  I created it with the hope of helping and inspiring other parents to draw on natural remedies when caring for their children and to inspire myself to continue learning and growing as a mom and herbalist.

I also teach a variety of classes on medicine making, women’s health and kid’s health.  Check out the classes page for a current class schedule.  Feel free to contact me if you are interested in booking for events, classes or private instruction.

Thanks for visiting!

    Hi Faith,

    Love your site. I am an herbalist as well, but on the other side of the country in Massachusetts. I hope you faired well in the horrible weather that you in Colorado have been receiving! My brother-in-law live quite near you. I am also just getting my blog up. Great to see others that live naturally.

      Thanks for reading Cassandra! My family and home are safe, but it has been a really tough time for many around us. I checked out “the suburban reaper” as well, love the name. And i particularly enjoyed “my introduction to herbalism”. What a crazy story! Glad you found herbs
