Meet the Herbalists!
Faith Rodgers (owner / certified clinical herbalist)
Hey there, Welcome to the Little Herbal Apothecary! My name is Faith. I am certified clinical herbalist and mom of three. I created the Little Herbal Apothecary in 2015 to support the community by providing access to high quality organic herbal remedies and all-natural, botanical skincare products. One of my biggest passions is teaching people how to make their own herbal remedies at home. You can find a ton of great recipes on the Little Herbal Blog or visit the store for a hands-on workshop! When I am not at the Apothecary, you can find me playing board games with my kids, wandering in the mountains or playing my ukulele.

Alanna Fernandez (production manager)
Hello! My name is Alanna. Like my co-workers, I am drawn to plants just the same. Landscaping in Colorado for 9 years has shown me the natural growing states and environments where our ever present variety of local herbs thrive. Diving deeper into the plant world and community brought me to volunteering for a year at Moondance Botanicals in Denver, Colorado where I began to learn about the medicinal properties of plants. Totally immersed in the growing and working with plants, I started incorporating herbs into the making of my own products. As the production manager at Little Herbal I love getting dirty in the creation of our many loved products that people return for again and again. I have learned so much from working at the Little Herbal Apothecary and constantly continue to learn so much more from my amazing, knowledgeable coworkers. When I’m not producing in our kitchen, I usually am seeking out water, sailing, cooking (more importantly eating) delicious things with friends, creatively expressing myself, or walking my sweet pup.

Rachel Bull (certified herbalist)
Hello, my name is Rachel! I am a certified herbalist and will be finishing up my education in 2024 at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism as a clinical herbalist and flower essence practitioner. When I was first introduced to the art of herbalism, I quickly found solace on my journey of healing. I love incorporating herbs into my skincare routine, garden, cleaning supplies, baking, and cooking (most often in a loaf of sourdough). While every body is unique, I believe there is something out there for everyone when it comes to herbs. On my days off, I enjoy being by bodies of water, going for solo walks, reading a wide variety of novels, baking to my heart's content, and having meaningful conversations with my friends and husband!
