Greetings & Salutations! I am Lindsay, a seasonal shapeshifter and the proprietress of Altar & Leaf. I conjure up an array of seasonally aligned teas, tonics and elixirs for magical folk and daring muggles alike. I run this wee business completely solo and take my time to make sure that each order is wrapped up with a little bit of magic & a whole lot of love. I am all about creating beautiful experiences for others. This is why when your receive a parcel from me, you will be treated to a delightful sensory unveiling in the form of flower, root, leaf and seed.
I am a fan of the written word, especially in the form of poetry and classic literature. These art forms are often the inspiration behind many of my creations. I consider my tea blending practice to an artistic expression. Carefully selecting herbs according to their folklore, medicinal, color, texture and flavor profiles. Its storytelling!
When I am not blending up brews and potions, I am often found wandering the old growth forests, hiking up mountains or chattering on with the various flora and fauna.
I currently dwell with my clan of 3 wild boys and brilliant husband in the beautiful PNW. We’ve raised a variety of animals and tended to the growing of many edibles, herbs and flowers on our land.
Thank you for joining me here on my little corner of the web. I hope you enjoy perusing the website. I always love to hear from my patrons. Please reach out and say hello!
