Nature’s Drugstore

February 4, 2013

Long before there was a CVS at the corner, long before Walgreens was coast to coast, people who were sick managed their illness with plants. If they themselves didn’t know how to find the right herbs, they headed to their medicine man. Here at The Wild Ramp, we have an Herbal Sage.DSC_0024

Maureen Burns-Hooker, Founder of The Herbal Sage Tea Company, has spent many years of tasting and testing special blends to share with you.  Grown locally in Ohio on 110 acres in Meigs County, Mo harvests nettle, mint, rosehips and many more varieties. Other ingredients come from afar, such as tumeric.  No essences or flavorings are used; all the taste of each tea is from the plants.DSC_0022

Defining herself as a lifestyle entrepeneur, Maureen has long followed her passion to make her likelihood. After a time as a punk rocker, she took her love of vintage clothes and opened her first store in Cleveland when she was 19-years-old. It grew and she opened another shop.  Her involvement with herbal medicine started in the 1980s, Still living in the city she began an urban garden, but it was after a series of classes with a mentor in Meigs County that she moved to southern Ohio and then to Athens.4tinsherbal
