I have been working with Herbs and studying Botany since my late teens, (over 30 years) while attending Indiana Univeristy of Pennsyvania. Since graduating in 1992 with a BS in Biology I continued my studies in Herbal Medicine and Horticulture. In 1998-1999 I attended a Herbal Certification Course at Highline Community College, studying under Ayuvedic Herbalist Karta Parkh Singh Khalsa.
For 8 years (2010 - 2017) I was Staff Herbalist at Ubi's-Ubiquitous Journey aka Ubi's cafe-an Herb, Tea & Spice Shop in Tacoma, WA. I gained tremendous amount of experience creating custom blends for clients and developing my line of supplements, teas & tinctures.
Horticulturist Experience:since 1998 I have worked at 5 Nurseries in the Tacoma, Wa area and owned my own Pond Store for several years. I was manager, buyer, grower, sales, social media, writer as well as having a private applicators pesticide license for 10 years and have been an organic gardener for over 20 years.
My personal goals were to establish a business where I produce herbal products, ebooks, online courses and train the next generation of well-rounded, educated Herbalists. I am proud to finally see these goals coming into reality with upcoming Ebooks and Herbal Elements Academy to lauch Spring 2019!
Herbal Elements- Herbal Elements was established in 2002 by Integrative Herbal Practitioner and Certified Herbalist, Kerri Bailey. We have been developing our recipes for over 20 years and use only the finest organic and fair trade ingredients. We package our products in earth friendly or glass containers whenever possible to preserve our products quality. Our products are often prepared in small patches following the cycles of the moon which ensures a synergistic fusion of herbs energy to increase (new moon) or decrease (full moon). Many of our organic botanicals are grown on our farm in Roy, WA and are picked at optimum ripeness and processed immediately ensuring that only fresh, healthy plant material is used. Herbs are also acquired from local, reputable sources and growers. Mountain Rose Herbs and United Teas Northwest. We also have other wholesale herb and tea suppliers, local to the PNW and direct importers from China and other parts of the world.
Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world's oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. It's based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. I blend these concepts with my Reiki training (Master/Teacher level 1998), Chakra Connections energetics, Nutritional Support and Herbal Medicine = Integrative Herbal Medicine.
I also specialized in Herbal Consultations for those wanting to target specific health issues; detoxification programs; maintain, build and provide nutritional support using herbs customized to the individuals needs.
