- About A Wild Light Apothecary and a note from Fern Tallos
My name is Fern Tallos, I am a community herbalist based in the Olympia area on Nisqually and Squaxin territory. My work encompasses private consultation services, custom herbal formulas, postpartum support, and mediation services. I strive to provide the highest quality care and medicines to my clients and community.
The practice of herbalism seeks to find balance in body, mind and spirit by minimal and gentle use of healing herbs. This is achieved in part by illuminating the imbalances which keep us from wellness. The act of healing asks us to examine the ways our behaviors and patterns, histories, environments, and relationships to privilege and oppression have affected and continue to affect our mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness.
I believe herbalism is a radical form of self-care and that investment in community provides a framework for upholding the changes we make in our lives. I invest myself daily into this field in part because of its accessibility and affordability, but also because of the participation the healing plants call on us to be active in. I see change most vibrantly when we become as involved as possible in our healing. It is my top priority to provide nonjudgemental care and I believe that each person regardless of their sexual orientation, gender expression, race, ability, class, religion/spiritual beliefs, resident status, or substance use status has the right to care and support. We are all born with the right and the ability to heal.
