"Illness is not the enemy. It is the bodies way of communicating with us. Let us learn to listen and act accordingly."
Hello, my name is Aubree Saulpaw, I started Desert Roots Apothecary in 2019. At the time I had just discovered the word herbalism. Before then, I had no idea of this health path among the plants. I had tested my curiosity in psychology, nutrition, and personal training, and nothing stuck. I bounced around from different office and customer service jobs never feeling a full sense of purpose. I don't believe that we each have a single individual purpose, however, discovering herbalism was like discovering the spark that the pilot light of my soul was waiting for. I dove right into consuming and absorbing as much information as I possibly could. I began seeing my desert landscape with fresh eyes. I started working with the plants I was learning about and eventually started a small hand-crafted product line to share with my community. I even operated a small urban vegetable and herb farm with some brilliant people who were introduced into my life through herbalism. I have a burning desire to continue to work with and learn from these special plants, and most importantly, to share this with the world.
I am an aspiring clinical herbalist currently studying and under herbal mentorship from CommonWealth Holistic Herbal School. My plan is to receive recognition from the American Herbalist Guild. In order to accomplish this I will be completing 800+ hours of formal study, and 400+ hours of clinical study during which I will work one-on-one with clients. I will create a working Materia Medica of at least 150 herbs, and create a local network of physicians and other health professionals to work with and call on.
You can find my working list of Materia Medica here. I will be adding to them as I become more familiar with the plants.
My mission with my future clients is to approach concerns from a holistic perspective. Meaning that... I operate on a belief that illness is not the enemy, it is the bodies way of communicating with us. Let us learn to listen, and act accordingly.
