Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions followed by a 30 minute interview with her guest Melissa Mutterspaugh.
Melissa Mutterspaugh is a Clinical Herbalist, Environmental Educator, Founder & Formulator at Mountain Mel's Essential Goods (an herbal products company), podcast host on The Herbalist's Path, and mother of a beautiful young girl and a few fur babies living in the foothills of Mount Hood, Oregon.
She spent the early 2000's as a backpacking guide and wilderness therapist, which is where her passion for herbal medicine began. While people were paying her 100's of dollars to guide them to her most sacred spaces, she noticed that they were all carrying toxic nasty products in their first aid kits and backpacks, and it chapped her hide! Not only were they polluting their bodies, more importantly they were polluting our planet! So, she began devouring herbal books, and creating her own natural first aid kits. This planted the seed to her never ending desire to learn about herbalism. Fortunate to learn from some of the greatest herbal educators, her thirst for herbal knowledge is never quenched.
Today, Melissa's passionate about formulating stellar herbal products, teaching people to use plants as medicine in a safe and effective way, and inspiring people to take better care of the planet, by taking better care of themselves!
