My name is Isabel Santiso and I am a holistic practitioner dedicated to providing healing modalities through a connection to energy healing traditions, herbalism traditions, the land, the people and spirit. My mission is simple - HOPE – to “Help Other People Evolve” on their life purpose journey in harmony with themselves, the planet and others. As a holistic practitioner I believe that all clients are unique individuals with unique needs which need to be addressed with creativity, compassion, love and patience. As a teacher, I am passionate about sharing my acquired knowledge and experience to help empower students to learn how to heal themselves and others to facilitate physical, emotional and spiritual wellness and a greater connection with mother earth, the universe, spirit and humanity.

7 Acre Wood Farm - Nonprofit Member
We live in a sacred place. 7 Acre Wood Farm lies on the southern facing slope of Jack Mountain in northern Bath County, Virginia. Although farming at 2,500 feet can be a challenge, we have embraced Permaculture and Biodynamic practices (and ethics) to grow food, medicinal herbs, and to create habitat for pollinators.
The organization of the web site, Earth Care, People Care, and Fair Share, reflects our overall philosophy on how we feel 7 Acre Wood Farm contributes to our physical, mental and spiritual health as well as that of the community and surrounding region.
With Althea Botanicals, I strive to grow and use plants in remedies and formulas that are acclimated to the area in which I live and also look to native plants in your locale when considering plants that might best align with your needs.
I will only wildcraft plants that are not considered At-Risk, which are plants that have not been over-harvested to the point that extinction has become a possibility.
May Althea Botanicals offer you comfort and care.

Blood and Spicebush
North Carolina, USA
I am a practitioner of Hedgecraft.
By looking to the past we can find connection with ancestral lifeways while addressing cultural appropriation. Our classes are for everyone. I focus my work and research on bringing to light the forgotten folklore of plants, witchcraft and how one can integrate them to live a more connected and meaningful life.
It is a place where Folk Herbalism, Appalachian Folk Magic, European Traditional Witchcraft, Primitive Skills, Folkloric Farming and Wild Food Foraging meet. It is a remembering of the Old Ways. Many of us no longer have grandmothers and grandfathers who can teach us these things, we are all relearning how to survive. And, how to thrive. Whether you are called to magic or to medicine, spoon carving or growing food, we are still here.

Her approach to making herbal blends is to look at how the herbs affect the individual physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually using Traditional Western Herbalism.

We champion the rights of devotee gardeners and yogic farmers to plant and grow a bounty of beautiful, living plants and garden sanctuaries without being harassed by any entity that seeks to impose on them an ideological agenda that goes against their values. Shamanism is deep, ancestral and ancient; it is an integral philosophy and practice. It is more than a term or a pseudoscientific phrase to equate with other healing modalities, therapies or spiritual perspectives. It is a way of life. We declare religious freedom in our gardening, care for the environment and our use of sacred plants.
