About Wooden Spoon Herbs
Hello! I'm Lauren, the founder and herbalist behind Wooden Spoon Herbs. This lovely business grew out of my personal herbal practice and curiosity about the incredible rich, biodiverse region that is southern Appalachia. Born and raise in Chattanooga, Tennessee, I know live in the mountains of northern Georgia. I actually live on the most southerly Appalachian mountain, Lookout Mountain.
Wooden Spoon Herbs is a small-batch herbal apothecary. Rather than tap into the booming global herb trade, where herbs are imported from myriad countries and travel countless miles, our products are thoughtfully made with American-grown herbs, sourced directly from the farmers that grow them.
We offer our plant medicines in every approachable incarnation - tinctures, salves, creams, sprays, syrups - and strive to bring you high vibrations in every package.
The plants we work with have been either lovingly picked by our own hands, sourced from small family-run medicinal herb farms or grown with the utmost care by local farmers and foragers in our bioregion.
Wooden Spoon Herbs aims to inspire and empower our community to take self-care into their own hands in a very real and connected way. Seasonal medicine, staying close to our roots, and utilizing the bounty of our bioregion are at the forefront of our creations.
