Apothecary of the Appalachian Wild Women is a mother and daughter team. Amanda has been blending our fabulous tried-and-true products for approximately 1 year, myself, well… I’ve worked with herbs and oils for decades. What started out as an at-home mother caring for her children, as well as herself, has become a mother and Nana team blending the gifts of the universe to naturally/organically care for OUR children and selves.
I (Brenda) have lived in many states, starting in New York and as of date residing with my family here in Powell, TN. I have been a daycare owner and director, a supervisor with a large corporation, and my most fulfilling job is being a mother and Nana, to 2 adult children and 4 wonderful grand-babies.
Amanda had started her life in New York. She was in The Marine Corp for 5 years, she has resided in many states and has lived abroad. She is currently a licensed teacher, veteran, and is living in Powell, TN. As a young mother, I cared for Amanda and her younger brother utilizing the gifts mother nature provided. I had two friends that grew and worked with herbs and oils and, in a way, I was their pupil. I could not get enough knowledge from them. Within time, I was gardening and producing home remedies, bath aids, facial treatments etc. on my own.
I fully enjoy the aromas, colors, textures and healing properties nature presents to each of us, the magic is knowing how to blend and manipulate these wonders for healing and pleasure. I am blessed to have absorbed this gift and am now able to pass this on to my daughter. WE are blessed in being juried into Appalachian Arts Craft Center so that we may promote our natural products,
