Ask an Herbalist…
Susan has been working with herbs for many years while operating her boutique studio, Unity Yoga Teahouse, from 2006 to 2020. Her interest in tea motivated her to explore herbal remedies and plant infusions, and her friends helped her design the tasty and unique signature blends that Unity Herbals is known for.
Her interest in medicinal plants started with infusions, which she found to be not only refreshing but also encouraged a sense of deep well-being. As her sensitivity to plants grew, so did her apothecary of plant material. Most of the dried herbs you find in her teas are sourced carefully from different growers and distributors to seek out organic (where available), fair trade, and sometimes wild crafted plants from pristine wilderness areas in BC. Susan hand crafts many of her tinctures to ensure a high quality standard, and spends time carefully preparing her topical skin salves and plant oil infusions.
Susan completed a 4-year clinical program in Herbal Therapy as well as the Chartered Herbalist program at Vancouver’s Dominion Herbal College, the oldest herbal medicine school in North America. Her training also includes Intermediate level Herbal Medicine with the Wild Seed School on Salt Spring Island and one-on-one coaching with Jasmyn Clift. She is passionate about continuing to learn through study and mentorship, enriched by her own intuition and personal experience.
