We think growing our herbs is as important as growing our food. Here at Mountain Spirit we grow lots of the products used in our oils, balms and tinctures, and also a few of our dry herbs.
When we produce our products, almost everything is processed for at least six weeks. Most herbs are fresh—especially with our oils and balms—and we often make them super-concentrated by double infusing our plant material. We do not standardize any of our mixes, allowing the plants to gift us with their full beneficial properties. All our products are made in
very small amounts, always as fresh as we can make it.
Come visit us at our workshop at the yurt in Port Townsend, our local Farmer’s Market, some of the craft fairs, or online. We love hearing from you and look forward to serving you.
I still have to supplement my harvest with high-quality herbs organically grown by other farmers, or wildcrafted both in our local region and elsewhere.
Thank you for supporting local, sustainable, small companies. I hope to hear from you, as I look forward to the time spent
with all my customers.
I am also available for herbal consultations. I can work over the phone or in person. Each consultation takes about one hour and is paid for by your donation (suggested donations $10 to $100).
Feel free to phone for an appointment—360-385-4491.
With the warmest blessings,
Mountain Spirit Has A Tractor!
For over three decades, Mountain Spirit has been creating and supplying herbal products to its customers, in both our local community and communities across the United States. The demand for natural herbal remedies continues to grow, and so has the demand for sustainably created products.
As the gardens grew (and the farmer got older!) tilling the land by hand had become increasingly difficult. To continue to create herbal products from herbs grown on the land in Port Townsend WA, using organic farming techniques, more land needed to be put into production. In order to expand the gardens, the help of farming equipment was needed.
Thanks to the generosity of our friends and supporters ... we now have a tractor! This is the new addition to our family, our very own Kubota B7300. We are humbled and grateful and can only pay it forward by continuing to provide quality products at reasonable prices. We are still in need of a backhoe, tiller and box scraper, but in time we’ll add these to our growing farm equipment.

Denise Joy is a fourth generation herbalist whose education was begun by her great-grandmother Fanny at age 8. The knowledge she gained through books and self-teaching has been augmented by studying with Auntie Margaret in Hawaii and Loren Cruden in Washington State. She is available for herbal consultations to the community and customers. For 31 years she has owned and operated Mountain Spirit Herbals, a company which specializes in herbal products. She makes, grows and wildcrafts much of the company’s product. She regularly offers opportunities to local at-risk youth to learn herbal potions. She has had over 75 apprentices and taught throughout Washington State and the Pacific Northwest.
Consultations available by request, fees on a sliding scale.
