Celebrating 20 years in business!!!

That's right.  20 years ago.   MoonMaid Botanicals was a just being born. It was in December 1995 that I printed my first labels and got some business cards.  I have come a long way.  MoonMaid has come a long way.  It is now a team effort.  Shirley, assists with product production.  I have a gardener who helps out mowing the lawns and keeps up the garden beds at both our office production space and at the Sanctuary.  This year, we counted overy 100 Ginseng plants in the woodland gardens.  It is exciting to seem them multiply each year!!! 

Ginseng with berries.  We propagate these naturally by spreading them downhill of the plant, pushed gently into the soil.
MoonMaid started out on MomsHead Farms in Santa Rosa in Sonoma County in California.  It was an incredible spot for an herb business. This tiny trailer is where everything happened..   Surrounded by all manner of herbs, creatures and whacky gardens, it was a very inspiring place.  I definitely picked up a flair for the whacky as you can see in the beds throughout MoonMaid's Botanical Sanctuary.  

We have been getting spruced up at the Sanctuary in preparation for new classes and events in 2015.  I will be offering classes on the medicinal herbs of the Smokies as well as "whipping and stirring" instructions at the Cabin in the Woods.  If all goes as planned, we will also break ground on the a Cottage that will serve as an office and "bunk" space for apprentices as well as an Air B and B for travelers interested in native herbs.  

I am very excited to announce the launch MoonMaid Botanicals Signature Scent Line.  This includes our very popular BathBliss Soaking Salts, our goatmilk soap and now a face serum as well as a roll on perfume so you can take the scent of MoonMaid with you everywhere.  The face serum is a blend of jojoba, borage and arghan oils Vitamin C/E/MSM and Blueberries to help you look your absolute best.  More on these new products in our newsletter in December.
