La Abeja Herbs creates medicine for the Dreamer, the Visionary, and the Lover. A nomad's apothecary, La Abeja Herbs is a dream realized, for herbalist and folk healer, Sophia Rose. She is a woman who is deeply connected to the earth and shares the beauty of all that she hears in her work with plants and people. Through La Abeja, Sophia offers New and Full Moon ceremonies, crafts a host of wild medicines and apothecary goods, holds space for flower essence and herbal wellness consultations, and teaches classes on topics including women's medicine, folk herbalism, and wild foods.
La Abeja Herbs can be found online at The Alchemist’s Kitchen, and is also available at all The Alchemist’s Kitchen retail locations.
All of La Abeja herbs are made with the moon in mind. Each formula is made at the time of the new moon, then pressed and bottled when the moon is full. All medicines are made by hand, in small batches, and with memory of ancient traditions.
