Among the Maples Herbals

Many have wondered about the inspiration behind the name "Among the Maples." It's true that maples are often associated with the majestic trees of the East and even grace our national flag. But here in the parkland region, we have our own special maple species, the Manitoba Maple, or Acer Negundo.

The image you see is from my parents' farm, my childhood home. These enduring maples have been a part of my life since I was a child, with some even providing warmth in our wood-burning stove. They stood sentry around our yard, harboring the fairies of my youthful imagination, offering a shield against the wind, sequestering carbon, and granting the cooling shade of hot summers.

For me, Manitoba Maples hold a unique place in my heart, shaping my childhood wonder and now welcoming me back as an adult. They are more than trees; they are a source of inspiration and a symbol of homecoming.

MEET JENNIFER

Jennifer is a seasoned Registered Massage Therapist since 2001, with a passion for holistic healing that extends into the realm of herbalism.

My fascination with the world of herbs began in my early years, nurtured by the rich tapestry of nature that surrounded me during my childhood on a farm. The seeds of interest planted during those formative years sprouted into a full-fledged commitment when, in 2019, I officially embarked on my herbalist journey by enrolling in my first herbalist program. This marked the formal beginning of my exploration into the therapeutic power of plants. Now, on the path to obtaining my Clinical Herbalist designation, I am steadfast in my dedication to expanding my knowledge and expertise in the realm of herbal medicine.

 

As an avid gardener, permaculturist, and teacher, I have cultivated a profound appreciation for the interconnectedness of all living things. This upbringing has not only shaped my personal ethos but also fueled my desire to share the healing potential of herbs with others.

In addition to my therapeutic services, I have embarked on the journey of crafting botanical-inspired self-care products. From soothing herbal teas to luxurious shower and bath blends, healing salves and balms to aromatic indulgences, each product is carefully curated to enhance your well-being.

Drawing on the wisdom of nature, these creations are a harmonious blend of healing plants and botanicals, designed to nourish both body and spirit.

Herbalism, often referred to as the people’s medicine, holds a special place in my heart. I firmly believe that everyone should be empowered with the knowledge of how to integrate plants and herbs into their everyday lives. This belief is the cornerstone of my practice – fostering a sense of empowerment and self-care through the gifts that nature provides.

At Among the Maples Herbals, we strive to create a space where individuals can embark on their own journey towards wellness, guided by the wisdom of botanicals. Join me in embracing the healing power of nature, as we work together to cultivate a healthier, more balanced life.
