"Depression is the worst. And when you’re in the midst of it, it feels like it will never end. But it does. It always does. They say to write about what you know.  And I know depression.  I imagine you do too.  It is deeply personal and yet totally universal.  While each of us experiences it in ways that are unique, it is an ache that many of us know all too well.  The hardest part for many of us is the unbearable sense of separateness that we experience.   It is a separateness that alienates us, not only from the world around us, but from ourselves. When we are in this place, it can feel impossible to pull ourselves out.  But it won’t last forever, I promise. And there are many thing we can do to shift our mood and our mindset for both the brighter and the better. 

I wrote this guide to help myself, and to help you or someone you love.  Because we are not alone in feeling overwhelmed by this life, or by the deep pain we see around us.  And this sensitivity is a gift. It is a guide for cultivating resilience within your own inner ecosystem. Because the world needs you right now. It needs you to feel and to come alive, more than ever before. Complacency and depression are difficult to resist in an era when our nervous systems are overwhelmed by seemingly endless news of political and environmental collapse. We must remember that we too are a part of the world - the living body of the earth. And if we neglect to care for ourselves, then what chance do we really stand of tending to the outer world in any meaningful way?"

About La Abeja Herbs 

"La Abeja means Honeybee in Spanish.  For as long as humans have known bees, we have been fascinated by and have even worshipped the small but elegant Apis mellifera.  Their hives are miracles of ingenuity, their efficiency and industry surpass that of the even the most sophisticated civilizations, and of course the sweet nectar they alchemically transform and preserve is enough to deserve our undying admiration.  Wherever honeybees pollinate, both flowers and food crops become wildly more abundant and successful, as if Demeter herself had graced the Earth beneath them. 

Honey boasts countless and diverse healing properties and is also one of the most nourishing foods for the body, heart, and soul.  This too is the mission of La Abeja Herbs, to offer guidance and support to people on their healing paths, all the while celebrating and embracing the sweetness of life.

Our medicines are made by hand, in small batches, in a way that all of our ancestors would recognize.  Our formulae are elegantly simple and remarkably effective. Each remedy is inspired by the plants themselves and offered humbly to you on your journey in hopes that it will bring you closer to yourself and to the land.

​All of our medicines are made in accordance with the lunar phases—begun at the time of the dark Moon, then pressed and bottled when the Moon is at its fullest, pregnant with the completion of a cycle and more potent than at any other time. We sources our herbs, packaging, and even our shipping materials with great care and are always working to partner with folks tending land and cultivating plants in a good way.  Some of our medicines are gathered from the wild and when this is the case, we always take care to tend and nurture the land and adhere to our Wholehearted Wildcrafting Guidelines.

True reciprocity sits at the center of all that we do, because healing is not just personal, it is political and also planetary. We donate a percentage of all revenue to BIPOC-led organizations and groups doing work at the intersection of social and environmental justice. When you order medicine from our apothecary, you’re making a valuable contribution to a culture of mutual flourishing and respectful reciprocity. ​A portion of all sales are donated to :The Indigenous Environmental Network, The Southern Poverty Law Center, United Plant Savers, Native Seed, Raices, Herbalista .
