Remedies Herb Shop
About six years ago, I received an email from Cherie at Remedies Herb Shop, asking if I was interested in wholesaling my soaps to her. I don’t know how Cherie found me, I never asked her. But I’m glad she did.
Remedies is located in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. They sell loose herbs, teas & tea supplies, root barks & spices, essential oils, flower essences & tinctures, Alegna Soap and many other herbal products. My girlfriend Jo Anne of Peony Rose Botanicals sells her natural deodorant there. In fact, I use her deodorant and I did a post about it a few years ago.
Featured in Brooklyn Magazine, New York Magazine along with a few other publications, Remedies has classes and events on medicinal herbs, perfuming and skincare. All of the staff are herbalists or apprentices and enjoy sharing their knowledge. When I had some digestive issues, Cherie was right there with suggestions on what herbs and teas might help.
Brooklyn’s favorite soap
Cherie tells me one of her best selling items is my Activated Charcoal soap. It seems Brooklyn loves it! Remedies is a woman owned business. When asked about her background, Cherie said “When I had my children over 20 years ago, I found myself in the trap of processed foods, over the counter meds and other unhealthy habits. I really wanted to take control of my health and set a better example for my daughters. I started by taking some herbal medicine classes at the Open Center and completed the advanced Immersion Program at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, becoming certified as a Holistic Health Coach. My interest in herbs grew and I went on to complete an apprenticeship and then an internship at Flower Power Herbs & Roots, both based in the Wise Women Tradition of Herbal Medicine.”
Next time you’re in Carroll Gardens, be sure to visit and tell them Angela sent you.
Yours in Gratitude,
