“Folk herbalism is the people's medicine, shaped by the land, driven by the healthcare needs of its inhabitants, and handed down through the generations.”
Phyllis Light, a fourth-generation herbalist
I'm Aleksa, the founder of Hale & Hart. I created h&h as a place to refill your cup, no matter how drained it is.
After struggling with chronic illness for years, I learned to take care of myself & others better. Now, as a community herbalist & disability activist, I help sustain folks who are working towards collective liberation, be they artists, activists, entrepreneurs, or anything else.
