Origo Selva

Apothecary I Hedgecraft

“I´m rooted, but I flow”
                          V. Wolf

My grandmother’s and mother’s obsessive love of plants and flowers inevitably planted a seed in me. It has slowly forged internal roots that are breaking through the pavement of my distractions and drawing me deeper and deeper into my personal jungle: the intrinsic knowledge about the healing rituals and traditions of the native peoples of the Americas.

Origo is Latin for origin. Origo Selva is the return to the origin, the return to the root, the destigmatization of the serpent and the reconciliation with the purifying quality of fire. In this laboratory I am creating personalized products for the recovery of the connection to health and beauty that belong to us by birthright, tapping into the wisdom of plants.
