from Eden Clearbrook, Apothecary Founder
As Seen In...
For 40 years I have experienced the blessings of the Healing Herbs. Through their ongoing presence I have grown exponentially, shed many layers of physical and emotional discomfort and illness, and actualized my spiritual purpose. Having experienced the gift of self-healing a pre-cancerous cervical condition with Herbs and Spirit led me to the lifelong study and practice of Herbalism, Yoga, Massage and Spiritual Healing. In 1997 I founded the Garden of Eden Apothecary to benefit our coastal communities. It has become a steady beacon of healing, hope, community sharing and building.
From soil building, seed planting, plant nurturing to collecting and producing Healing Salves, Creams, Tinctures and Flower Essences, my life revolves around Nature's cycles. Ancient wisdom passed through endless generations to support well being and healing, Nature's Way, these remedies now serve families all over the US and abroad.
My love for our precious Earth, Gaia, inspires my daily life; these past four decade in West Marin county have nurtured, nourished, informed and mentored me, transforming me into being indigenous to this place. This profound kinship translates into activism in all aspects of Her care: from organic gardening, botanicals and vegetables raising, compost making, water conservation, seed saving, Community building, supporting and guiding my sisters and their families through the Birthing process and teaching to being at the Nevada Nuclear test site and at home standing firm in and for the sanctity of the Land; saying NO to nuclear weapons, pesticides and finding non-toxic solutions.
Looking down at my own feet, I recognize the loving and fierce presence of the light of the previous generations whose love and dreams brought us here. Thank you, my wonderful parents and maternal grand-mother for sharing your horticultural and healing gifts, Paris of my youth for endowing me with great love for History, beauty and trees; my beloved children Eve, Marie and Forest for being my first spiritual teachers and growing with me, in love; Creator for the gift of this precious lifetime, Gaia, our radiant plant People and community, seen and unseen, the wisdom teachings of the indigenous People of North and Central America, India, Tibet and the Sufi Path, all my Herbal and Healing teachers and allies, my students and clients the world over for carrying forward the light of this Healing Herbal tradition.
May Gaia's magnificent bouquet of offerings continue finding a home within your heart and support your journey toward balance, peace, abundance and happiness!
