Charmaine Bee Bloom Series Memory and ancestral lineage pay a vital role in my herbalism work. I often think back to my grandmother, Lucretia Bee and her home in South Carolina that was filled with so many things that I could just sit and stare at all day - like the big pecan tree in front yard and a red well pump in her backyard - the image of that pump has stayed with me and whenever I think of and have dreams about the land my grandmother once owned the red well pump handle is there. I learned to process and interpret my dreams while growing up in South Carolina and this was pivotal to the development of listening to my intuition. The process of intuitively listening and supporting others in hearing their intuition is [deeply grounded in my memories on that land and incorporated into the creation of my teas and tinctures. In 2009 Gullah Girl Tea was born with the mission to create small batch healing tea blends that honored my Gullah Heritage. After starting Gullah Girl Tea I studied medicinal and spiritual herbalism in the Sacred Vibes Apothecary apprenticeship program with Karen Rose, it was important for me to study with a teacher who emphasized the spirituality of plant energy. Within my studies I learned how to make tinctures! I loved the process and began to make tincture formulas alongside my tea blends, to support my emotional healing, dream work and depression. I began to share them with friends and people who loved my tea. It is my absolute joy and pleasure to share my line of tinctures with you and to support you in your journey in whatever way that I can!
