Meet our Herbalists
Molly's journey as a healer began when she realized how potent and powerful plant remedies could be during a deep meditation with blue vervain (pictured together). Blue vervain, a beloved plant of the druids (ancestors from her Irish lineage), taught her to invite softness into the areas of tension she carried throughout her early 20s. She is called to help others connect with plant allies, and offers guidance through healing sessions (consultations) and workshops.
She considers herself primarily a folk herbalist, fusing traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, Vitalism, and Astrology into her practice. She incorporates her knowledge of the body systems, nutrition, and the chakras into one-on-one sessions. She practices heart-centered deep listening, and allows her intuition (and the plants!) to guide her.
In a constant pursuit of knowledge, Molly has an extensive herbal background through self-studies, attending herbal gatherings, and apprenticeship programs. Molly extends gratitude to some of her many teachers: Sage Mauer at the Gaia School of Healing, Mischa Schuler from Wild Carrot Herbs, Amanda Stanley with Jupiter's Labyrinth, Sajah Popham and the School of Evolutionary Herbalism, and of course, the plants. In her past life, she earned a BA from UNH in English Teaching and minored in Psychology.
Aside from her work with the plants, gardening, and making potions, Molly plays harp, bakes cakes, and writes poetry.
Jessica joined The Herbal Path in 2014 as the manager of the Dover location. After attending cosmetology school to build her knowledge of healthy hair and skin, she spent 10 years in the diet and fitness industry giving her an extensive background in helping people with nutrition and exercise.
Since joining The Herbal Path, her passion surrounding herbs has led her to build her knowledge around full body systems and herbal actions. Her training includes, but is not limited to, Sajah Popham’s Vitalist Herbalist Practitioner program, Rosemary Gladstar’s The Science and Art of Herbalism course, and continuous training under our in-home herbalist, Mimi Alberu. She is now currently enrolled in the herbal apprentice program at Sacred Tree Herbals in Meredith, NH.
When Jessica isn’t working, she is often immersed in her herbal practices at home. She loves to grow medicinal herbs, create her own tinctures, and make customized formulations for friends and family. Her passion for helping others feel empowered as they take control of their health and achieve their health goals has led her to offer one-on-one consultations with customers.
