“She bore the "Evenstar", as the most beautiful of the last generation of High Elves in Middle-Earth.”
When I founded Evenstar Herbs back in 1987, commercial herbal products were just peeking out from behind closed doors. There were no giant herb companies and grocery and drug stores did not have herbal products on the counter. Evenstar began as small family owned and family run business. We gathered all of our herbs by hand and made all of our herbal products patiently and precisely according to traditional ways.
For many years we have been very much a traditional herbal company and making all of our herbal products in the traditional ways ourselves. From our Virginia gardens, we gather many of our herbs and we still formulate our herbal products and package them individually when you order. We have changed though, in that being online meant we can connect with the Web of Life across the planet.
In 2007 the FDA established manufacturing guidelines for small companies that make dietary supplements including herbal products. Since then, we have been meeting the requirements that we could and weighing our options.
In light of the significant financial investment (we are looking at six figures) required to meet these new guidelines we have decided to close Evenstar Herbs.
So this really is our last sale ever. Please take advantage of it. We are shutting down retail sales April 25, 2014.
We’ve had a good run, given needed service to our communities, provided a light in the dark for the resurrection of herbalism when it was needed, and lent a healing hand to so many over the years.
Even though we won’t be making and selling Evenstar Herb products to the general public, thanks to a provision in the requirements that allows those who do one-on-one consultations to provide “an end-user formulation”, we will still be able to continue with our primary service of providing personalized herbal products to my consultation clients.
Those whom I work with in my consultation services will still be able to have access to the personally formulated herbs that are a mainstay to your wellness journeys. This is how Evenstar Herbs started and now it seems we are going back to our roots :-)
If you are interested in a Wellness Consultation with me please visit my new website.
(The new website is still a bit “under construction” so if you can’t find what you are looking for, Please contact me directly.)
Even though Evenstar Herbs is closing, Evenstar, is continuing in an evolved form as Creative Transformational Living.
When I started my company, I was following a vision for creating a place of healing and consciousness shifting. Since then, Evenstar has gone through many transformations. Throughout each of these transformations, I have been guided by my heart’s desire to continually merge multidimensional ancient wisdom with the frontiers of consciousness.
From the beginning, Evenstar has been about the multidimensional nature of healing and the journey to the realization of your True Self, living with deep health, wellness, and well-being. As Evenstar grew and evolved and took on different forms, it became less and less about the journey from being sick to being not sick (not to say that is not important – as it certainly is), and more and more about the leap from being just OK to Thriving and Flourishing.
It was always the ancient wisdom of things unseen that captured my attention. My focus for Evenstar has been to keep it grounded in the art of non-local ancient wisdom and intuition and marry it to the science of true medicine. When I refer to medicine, I am not talking just about conventional medical treatments. Native peoples often refer to medicine as something that gives power and completion to a person. And this is the definition that I bring to Evenstar.
Evenstar was created as an integrated, multi-layer, multi-facetted place of Creative Transformational Living. – with many Houses of Healing. In my vision, true creative living engages with living, healing and coming again to know our self from a holographic, integrated, holistic, evolutionary perspective. Now, as Evenstar Herbs merges into part of Creative Transformational Living, it takes a multidimensional, multi-level approach to supporting the creative force of the body, mind, and spirit in being centered in the fulfillment of their expansion.
Disease, illness, unhappiness, and un-fulfillment are not my sole focus, but rather building resilience and resonant coherence in the body, mind, and spirit. And looking to return and maintain these forces in their full functional capacity and moving beyond that into thriving and flourishing – that is my intention.
Along the way, symptoms of unbalance are resolved.
Now as Evenstar reaches its maturity, it steps into the expansion of fostering the remembrance of the multidimensional capacity of human consciousness. It takes health, wellness and well-being and goes beyond that – reaching deep into the flow of awareness to connect with the journey of the magic of life.
And that journey can start no matter where you are.
So even though Evenstar Herbs relinquishes its present form, my intent is still to hold open the invitation for those I work with to remember and embrace the wholeness of who they really are.
For me, the saddest experience is to see dreams wither. And, the most awesome experience in the world is to see dreams and desires go from mere hopes and wishes to manifested reality.
Your dreams are your inspired gifts to the world and your pathway to bringing yourself to fruition – they are your ultimate healer and purpose in life. Your Dreams are your outward expression of your own Creative Transformational Living.
Farewell, dear Evenstar Herbs costumers!!! It has been a privilege to serve you and we thank you dearly for your association with us. It has been a wonderful time for all :-)
I would love for you to come visit at Creative Transformational Living and take up your Magical Journey with me in this new form.
"And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.
Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life's desire.
Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back,
learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you. "
~ John O'Donohue
How to take Tinctures and Tonics
To take tinctures, place the dosage into a glass, add a small amount of water and drink. If the taste of the tincture is too strong you can mix with more water or try tea or juice (with milk is yucky - IMHO). Do not take full strength tinctures directly in your mouth - this may damage delicate mucous membranes.
Tonics are best tolerated taken at meal times but most people have no problem at anytime.
Traditionally, dosages for taking herbs was individual and changed as the relationship between the herbs and the person shifted. The potency of herbs changes with the seasons, the weather, the soil, who tends the plants, the power of place where the herbs grow, and what is happening in and around the environment where the herbs call home.
People also have specific relationships with the herbs and sometimes you can obtain the greatest shift in your system with very small drop dosages and other times it requires tablespoon size dosages. Your own individual dosages and responses to herbs will change depending on where you are on the health, wellness, and well being continuum, the aggressiveness of what you are experiencing, and how closely you are aligned with the natural rhythms of your body.
In addition, recommended dosages can vary greatly depending on the Herbal Tradition. Some Herbal Traditions only recommend drop dosages and other Herbal Traditions only recommend tablespoon dosages.
So it is hard (and frankly can be misleading) to give a standard “good for everyone” dosage for taking herbs. When I work directly with a client in an Herbal Healing Program I understand that person’s wellness history and their energetic dynamic and can get a good sense of the proper dosages for their herbs.
That said, for these general formulas there are some useful general guidelines:
For adults 18 - 70+ years, the Evenstar Herbal tinctures are formulated to be used mostly by dropper full dosages. The general dosages for Evenstar tonics are: 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp 1-3x a day. Taken at meal times.
Some people have a full response to the tonic at the lowest dosage (1/2 tsp 1x a day) and some people do better at the highest dosage (1 tsp 3x a day). Half a teaspoon is approximately 3 droppers.
However some sensitive bodies do better starting with 1 dropper or less (3-20 drops).
So if you know your wellness history and if you have taken herbs and tonics before you will have a general idea of how well you tolerate herbs and you can begin at the dosage where you most usually start.
If you are not sure about your response to the herbs, you should always start at the lowest dose and then gradually work up to the dose that seems to work best for you.
Children, teens, the elderly, those on medications, and pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult with a knowledgeable herbalist about which herbs and which dosages are appropriate for them.
Measurement Conversions: 5 droppers is approximately 1 teaspoon; 6 droppers is approximately 1 capful of our 4 oz. and 8 oz. bottles (3 droppers is approximately 1/2 capful and 2 droppers is approximately 1/3 capful); 1 dropper is approximately 1 milliliter; 40 drops is approximately 1 dropper; 1 drop is approximately 50 milligrams.

Bitters can be used to strengthen and improve the whole digestive system in the body as well as the nervous system. Bitters also act to increase the vital energy centers in the body. Because they have such a broad effect on the entire physiology, tone, and function of the body, bitters are a principle that can be used to treat the body as a whole. The beneficial effects of bitters go beyond digestive hormone activity. Bitter stimulation can often shift a condition or illness that does not appear to have anything to do with the digestive process. The bitter principle acts to increase self-healing and resistance in many ways.
Directions: ½ to 1 teaspoon at each meal.
