plant spirit medicine in the ocean state
Sea Song + Root is the healing practice of Mindy Stock, an herbalist + musician based in Providence, Rhode Island. Inspired by the ocean + meadows of her Northeast home, she offers plant-based remedies + spiritual insight to those who seek to bring balance + vitality to their lives.
Most of the remedies I make + work with come from plants I have known personally, either through tending my garden or being with them in their wild habitats. I usually work in small batches, so as to not harvest more of the plant than I know I could use. As my herbal practice becomes more public, this could change, but for now my apothecary is limited in respect for the plants.
When harvesting an herb, I like to offer song as prayer + always ask for their consent to be worked with. This relationship shines in moments when I'm creating medicine for someone in particular, as the herb can specify which form it wants to take: tea, tincture, smoke, bath, etc.
I offer sliding scale consultations in person + over distance to those seeking balance + support in their lives. Our time together may include tongue + pulse assessment + the use of divinatory methods such as the tarot. Dietary + lifestyle suggestions, herbal + essence formulas, + ritual may be suggested.
