Project Description

Rooted Remedies {Herbal Self Care | Rooted Remedies | Portland} is a wild-crafted apothecary based in Portland, Oregon. Our mission is to help you reclaim a sense of empowerment in your health and wellbeing by reconnecting with the natural environment through holistic herbal supplements.

 

We believe that reconnecting with the seasonal rhythms and the nourishment found in nature is a foundational aspect of a vital community, and it starts with personal wellness. Spending time connecting and building a relationship with nature has been scientifically proven to support our immune system, nervous system, and overall health. Not everyone has access to natural areas though, and much of our traditional knowledge gets lost in the hustle of modern living, which is where Rooted Remedies comes in.

 

At Rooted Remedies, we are passionate about empowering people living a more vital life as well as doing our part to ensure a healthier future for our planet through education. We offer wellness products that incorporate ethically wild-crafted herbs to holistically support and nourish you throughout the year, including seasonally specific formulas. We are bridging the tradition of herbalism with the pace of modern living.

 

We are being presented with amazing opportunities of growth. Because Rooted Remedies is currently a one woman run business, the growth and production capacity is limited. We are crowdfunding to expand Rooted Remedies in bringing on a part time employee, renting a bigger space in a shared kitchen, and continuing to make herbal education and nourishment more accessible to the general public.

Any amount that you are able and willing to contribute to this goal, be it $10, $20, or $2000, please know that you are making a huge difference in making this vital nourishment more accessible, as well as giving back to the environment, helping to ensure a healthier future for us all. 

As a thank you for supporting our campaign, we are offering some amazing gifts, such as a customized wellness bundle, a year subscription for our seasonal items, as well as an opportunity to name one of our next seasonal products!

 

Here is a breakdown of what your donations will go towards:

•Renting a bigger kitchen/studio space
•Part time business collaborator
•More time and energy for wild-harvesting, running markets, and community outreach programs
•Upgrading equipment that will meet the needs of increased production
•New formulas to be added to the product line

 

 

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • When will I receive my reward?
    All donators, except 'Seasonal Subscription', 'The Name Game', and 'A Year of Rooted Remedies' will receive their full rewards within 2 weeks after the campaign ends.
     
  • What is the money going towards?
    All donations will go into the next stage of growth for Rooted Remedies. This includes rent space for a bigger studio/kitchen for 6 months; hiring a part time business collaborator who will help with admin, managing markets, and helping with the increased production, also giving Kassaundra more time and energy to increase wild-harvesting (while maintaining ethical and sustainable practices); adding new ongoing formulas to the product line; upgrading equipment to support the increase in production.
     
  • How do I know you will use the money how you say you will?
    Transparency and honesty are extremely important to me and something I consistently cultivate in my business and personal life. I will provide receipts and proof of purchase on a designated page on Rooted Remedies website. 
     
  • If Rooted Remedies is on a growth trajectory, why do yo need to crowdfund?
    Excellent question!! I started Rooted Remedies in Nov. 2020, and it has had a consistent upward growth pattern, as much as doubling sales almost every month. That being said, I started from quite a small scale because I wanted to see if there was a demand for my products. It turns out there is! Although there is exponential growth, because I started from such a small scale and didn't take out any loans, all my profit goes directly back into Rooted Remedies. In order to continue running my business in a sustainable way, I need to make a big leap in growth and production and I need a substantial amount of capital to do that.
