My name is Fern Tallos, I am an energetic herbalist based in the Olympia area on traditionally Nisqually and Squaxin territory. I offer private consultation services, custom herbal formulas, and support throughout the time we work together. I am also a medicine maker and have a variety of herbal products available. I strive to provide the highest quality care and medicines to my clients.
The practice of energetic herbalism seeks to find balance in body, mind and spirit by minimal and gentle use of healing herbs. This is achieved in part by illuminating the imbalances which keep us from wellness. The act of healing asks us to examine the ways our behaviors and patterns, histories, environments, and relationships to privilege and oppression, have affected and continue to affect our mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness.
I believe herbalism is a radical form of self-care. I invest myself daily into this field in part because of its accessibility and affordability, but also because of the participation the healing plants call on us to be active in. I see change most vibrantly in my clients when they become as involved as possible. It is my top priority to provide unbiased care and I believe that each person regardless of their sexual orientation, gender expression, race, ability, class, religion/spiritual beliefs, resident status, or substance use status has the right to nonjudgmental care and support. We are all born with the right and the ability to heal.
