Meet the Herbalists!
Faith Rodgers (owner / herbalist / artisan)
Hey there, Welcome to the Little Herbal Apothecary! My name is Faith. I am certified clinical herbalist and mom of three. I launched the Little Herbal Apothecary in 2015 to support parents in caring for their families using all-natural herbal remedies and clean, organic skincare products. One of my biggest passions is teaching people how to make their own herbal remedies at home. It can be so easy and FUN! Browse my blog for tons of great recipes or visit us at the store for a hands-on workshop! When I am not at the Apothecary, you can find me playing board games with my kids, exploring in the mountains or playing the ukulele.

Liz Faermark (herbalist in training)
Hey, folks! I’m Liz. I've spent the last few years cooking with organic, local and wild foods in restaurant kitchens, and growing cut flowers and medicinal herbs at Delight Flower Farm in central Illinois. Throughout my years cooking and farming, I developed a passion for learning and experimenting with wild edibles and medicinal plants. Working with safe, abundant and accessible medicinals in my garden was my first peek into the potent and powerful world of herbalism. I was empowered and inspired by my discoveries. My deep love for plants, food, art and community healing eventually led me to the Front Range, where I began studying at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism in 2018. Through my work and studies, I humbly wish to share medicine (be it a meal, a tea, a salve or a song) that uplifts individuals and communities alike.
When I'm not busy at school or the apothecary, I love performing with my band, cooking, salsa dancing, spending time outside, and going to see live music!
