Do you crave to live a life that feels magickal every day?

Have you ever wondered how to incorporate plant medicine and magick into your busy life but don't know how? Do you struggle to find inclusive places to learn about herbalism and magickal arts? Are there times where you ask yourself if the magickal life you want to live is even attainable? If you're here, chances are that you've asked yourself one of those questions. Don't worry, I have, too, and I'm here to help.

I offer classes and consultations to those who are looking to bring all of who they are to the table.

Folks come to me because they want a healing and magickal practice with an intersectional and social justice oriented framework. They want to live an authentically magickal life that recognizes every part of them and all of their identities as sacred. My intersectionality, and the reason I do the work that I do, arises from my lived experience as a gender-free queer and mix-d womyn and practicing witch. Herbalism and magick came into my life at the same time - and I quickly realized the transformative powers of both to help me navigate my world with a steady compass. I knew instantly that I was called to be a magick-maker and of service to folks on their healing path.

I started teaching magickal arts when I was 19 with my first tarot class. A few years later I spoke to an auditorium full of high school students about what a witch really is (hint: the best way to get the attention of a bored and distracted room of teenagers is to start your speech with "Hiya, my name is Alexis and I'm a witch."). I even presented an original paper at a Harvard conference on Paganism featuring speakers such as Ronald Hutton, R. J. Stewart, and Byron Ballard. After making an attempt to try and fit myself into the corporate non-profit world (long story short: it didn't work), I began my official training as a certified professional herbalist in 2007.  I'm proud to have studied with the likes of Matthew Wood, Dori Midnight, Margi Flint, Julie James, Demetria Clark, Judith Hill, and many more. I'm a perpetually enthusiastic student! 

Fast forward a few years later and in 2010 I officially opened Worts + Cunning Apothecary. Since then I've created and sold popular herbal products, specializing in herbal powders and other alcohol-free remedies, taught at conferences (one of which I helped organize), started my online course, and written for a variety of print publications on herbal and magickal traditions.

I'm called to be of service.
Through my work I strive to create a more just, a more kind, and a more enchanted world.

In my classes and consultations I help people and plants connect in meaningful ways that allows for deep healing to occur. From tarot to astroherbology to moon magick and simple rituals to realign with the sacred, I'll help you connect to the full spectrum that traditional western herbalism and esoteric tradition has to offer.
