Hello. My name is Samantha Lynn, and I started Wholistic Herbals in March of 2018. I was raised in a small, Midwestern town, where there wasn’t much of a community regarding wellness and natural products.
I first became interested in holistic health in my early 20s when I began to wonder what is in our food and daily products. I changed my habits and paid more attention to what I was allowing into my body. I switched to a more natural lifestyle, but the more I learned, the more I wanted to do. I wanted to not just help myself, but to help those I cared about, too. Eventually, I started creating my own products and shared them with my friends and family, gaining more support and inner strength every step of the way..
Once I started studying holistic health in 2016, my love for plants truly blossomed. I felt a connection to the plants around me as I realized they weren’t growing just to grow, but they had a purpose; to heal us and keep us healthy! I wanted to make a difference and help others make a difference, too, by offering the most effective, natural products possible, all made out of plant-based ingredients with eco-friendly packaging.
My journey led to New York, where I met many amazing people, friends, and opportunities.
I continued my education in holistic health and herbalism, starting with Herbal Academy’s Introductory Course in 2016. In 2017, I enrolled in People’s Medicine School, and in 2018, I attended the Northeast School of Botanical Medicine. It wasn’t long before I was teaching classes to other budding herbalists like myself!
My mission is to share the power of plants with those around me, and show people that they are a natural and effective alternative to the unnecessary additives prevalent in today’s society. I use whole ingredients and source locally whenever possible. Focusing on zero waste; all my packaging is compostable, reusable, or recyclable.
