I get so much joy from growing, harvesting, and creating remedies with my green allies. I try to use as many herbs from my own garden and earthspace as possible, as well as organic alcohols and oils and locally sourced honey and beeswax. The remedies in my apothecary feature herbs that are locally grown or harvested and have a long tradition of use as medicine. I have been studying the art of herbal medicine since 2012 and am trained as a clinical herbalist and have almost a decade of experience as a medicine maker. My tinctures, elixirs, salves, oils, vinegars, and hydrosols are all made in small batches. Many of my formulas are inspired by my connection to Celtic folklore and mythology and blend physical and energetic medicine.
“Mother Hylde’s products make my soul feel truly alive. Her relationship with the plants is felt on so many levels. Thank the gods for her ancestral connection that she shares with us all!”
“I found Ruthie through her line of Mother Hylde products at Kimberton Whole Foods. Wow! I’m blown away at how wonderful her products are and also with just how many different tinctures, salves, and products she carries. I’ve also been to her for massage and highly recommend her if you’re in need of a good body tune-up! Never had anything but the most pleasant experience with Ruthie!”

“Every herbal product I’ve purchased has been beyond excellent. Not only are the tinctures and flower essences effective, they are pure and true.”
“Love everything Ruthie makes, but this stuff is the best (Woundwort Wonder Salve). I originally bought it as a tattoo balm, but I love it for bug bites, scrapes, everything!”
