Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
We are a botanica that specializes in hand made herbal and ritual items. Our teas are hand blended, our honey comes from our own apiary, the sacred ritual items are crafted with intention and we love sharing the magic of plants through healing and celebration of nature.
I was in the middle of my second year as an herbal apprentice with The School of the Sacred Wild when I connected with a word that spoke to me,
V I R I D I T A S.
I didn’t know what it meant, but this word made me feel alive. In my search of the meaning I came across a German Benedictine abbess, Hildegard von Bingen.
She was an accomplished composer, philosopher, mystic, visionary, medical writer and practitioner during the High Middle Ages. Viriditas is one of the most recognizable contributions of Hildegard and it encapsulated the divine force of nature. It is a symbol of spiritual and physical health, and the latin word has been translated into greening, freshness, vitality, fruitfulness, life-force and growth.
This word has a feeling, a vibe, an energy, an aliveness, and I felt “Viriditas”.
The mission of Viriditas Botanica is to co-create with nature in providing herbal medicines and daily ritual items that will support your connection to Viriditas…
body, mind and spirit.
