Collection: Ms. Tea Botanica

Ms. Tea Botanica’s Laurel (they/she) is a bioregional herbalist, medicine maker & visual creative residing on unceded Coast Miwok land. Their practice supports people of all genders and levels of access to care. She operates within an anti-oppression, liberationist framework and invest in structurally competent, trans-affirming, trauma-informed and harm reductionist language and principles.

Laurel is committed to ethical sourcing and education around the harms of wildcrafting and appropriation. Ninety percent of the plants they work with are sourced from local farmers and plant folk within 100 miles of where they live. Some she grows herself, along with stewarding California native plants. Laurel works within many lineages and invites an open awareness of their own ability to perpetuate cultural and spiritual theft. She is not one to shy away from shedding light on the harms of colonial herbalism and the violence of white “wellness” spaces.

Laurel studied as a vitalist herbal practitioner with coursework in astro herbalism with the School of Evolutionary Herbalism. They expanded their practitioner skills with Blue Otter School of Herbal Medicine. She studied holistic protocols, advanced formulation, herbal safety & ethics with Wild Current Herbalism, with whom she is currently taking on a rigorous clinical mentorship.
