Healing and spirituality are tender aspects of life. And you can't trust *just anyone* with things that are so powerful and personal. SO-- allow me to introduce myself.

Hey! I'm stoked that you found yourself at the shop! I'm Rhea (the artist formerly known as Alyssa Humann.) I'm a Certified Herbalist and Integrative Nutrition Health Coach-- which are the credential form of my entire personality. I'm the friend you talk to about your concerns who pours you a glass of wine and explains, in detail, how the herbal remedies I recommend work in your body. 

I'm also-- lean in close-- your witch auntie. On top of the herbal remedies, I'm passionate about reading tarot, finding you the perfect crystal, and will 100% light a candle for you any day.

I'm also a writer who has been featured on Herb Mentor, the Sacred Science, the Practical Herbalist, and Crystal Star.

Anyway-- enough about me. Tea-- let's get into it.
