The Medicine Tree is one of those places where you’ll feel immediately welcome and at ease, where the proprietor, Jessie, has created a shop filled with ways to treat and care for ourselves and our families. I always come away from this neighborhood gem with some new learning and even a sense of calm.
I stopped in Saturday for the Spring Equinox open house and was delighted to speak with a woman who creates one of the many hand-crafted lines of products carried in the store. An herbalist was also available for consults and was blending customized herbal teas. The shop regularly offers classes; there’s an upcoming class on eating with the seasons that promises to be fascinating!
