Wooden Spoon Herbs believes that plants and people share a communal bond. Your body has an innate desire to be connected with the Earth, and the plants can be the conduit. They create vibrant, earth-attuned, scientifically-backed, and herbalist-formulated plant medicine. Their teas, tinctures, and tonics are meant to bring you back into alignment with the energy of the Earth and your own body.
They create synergistic and effective formulas using whole plant medicines, as Mother Earth intended. No fluff, no fillers, and no isolated plant compounds. Each drop is third-party tested for safety, and every dropper full contains just the right dose of herbal medicine.
Lauren Haynes, our founder and clinical herbalist, came to plant medicine via an interest in the counterculture, the counter-cuisine of wild foods, fermentation and eating food fresh from the ground.She stumbled into medicinal plants by way of deeply nourishing wild foods, and was immediately under their spell. She began her plant journey in 2013 by reading every herbalism book from the 70’s she could find. Lauren’s studies are centered in folk healing, which inspires her deep trust in nature and her medicine making approach: accessible, easy-to-use, and effective.
