A passion for plants
Raven’s Moon is a small batch herbal apothecary, specializing in body care products that are healing to the mind, body, and soul. All products are made by hand, using only the highest quality ingredients, sourced from fair trade and organic farms. I use local products whenever available, and use only reusable or recyclable packaging.
I am an Herbalist and an herb enthusiast from Elkhorn, NE. I have been formally studying herbs for over four years and currently have over 900+ hours of classroom study, as well 400+ hours of kitchen study. In addition to owning Raven's Moon, I also work for Herbalist Amanda Klenner who owns Natural Herbal Living, and I help publish her monthly herbal magazine, as well as help curate her monthly herbal subscription box. My goal is to help bring these amazing plants into the lives of those around me, and make herbalism more accessible to my community.

All of my products are made in small batches by hand. I only make products that I would personally use, which is to say, I only use the highest quality ingredients. I source herbs locally whenever I can, and when I am not able to, my main suppliers are Mountain Rose Herbs and Starwest Botanicals . All of my packaging is either reusable or recyclable and it is my goal to move from the plastic bags that I currently use for teas to compostable (it will be a long term process, but its in the works for 2020!). If you have ideas on how I can be more eco friendly, please shoot me a message!
My tinctures and glycerties are exclusively from Prairie Star Botanicals located in Blair, Nebraska. Here is a bit more about them:
Prairie Star Botanicals grew from our love of diverse, hardy and complex plants of the prairie. Nestled in the heartland of the United States, Prairie star looks to the prairie as a model for health and sustainable living. Native Prairie plants endure the stresses of a vast range of temperatures, moistures and wind, and are sustained by the deep roots that anchor them into the soil. We see the adaptability of these plants to change of the seasons, and appreciate the lessons that they provide.
