Meet our Founder, Herbalist Lauren Haynes
Founder and bonafide health nut Lauren Haynes has always found nourishment in nature.
Lauren grew up obsessed with the natural world in Chattanooga, Tennessee. After absorbing all the back-to-the-land folk wisdom she could find, Lauren dug into the books at Appalachian Center for Natural Health. For three years she studied everything herbalism, from cellular biology to energetic flower essences to folk healing to clinical studies, anatomy, physiology, and phytochemistry.
Lauren seeded Wooden Spoon Herbs in her Tennessee kitchen, and sprouted it at an Appalachian mountain farmers’ market stall. Today, Lauren's goal is to make earth-grown, time-tested herbal formulas accessible—for the health of ourselves and our planet.
