Rooted Things Apothecary was founded by Maya, a trained Clinical Herbalist, Reiki Practitioner, and Flower Essence Practitioner in Brooklyn NY. Her practice was born out of her own necessity to regain a deep connection she felt she once had with the subtle things around her. She had the urge to go back to the basics. That's when herbal medicine came into her life. She started making her own medicines, skin care, and other house hold products out of plants, the traditional way, where you can still feel the vibration of the plants it is made from. The store bought, chemical laden products felt dead, compared to the homemade products she was using. This ritual also became one of the major ways she was able to reconnect with the energy of nature. In her practice, she likes to blend her clinical herbal knowledge with the energetic approach of reiki and flower essence to remove any energetic blockages that maybe at the root of any physical, mental and spiritual issues.
